Valentine’s Day Plans to do in Your Car

Pulling out all the stops for your significant other on Valentine’s Day can get costly. You want to do something nice, but between rent, car payments and other costs, your budget is pretty tight. But, who says being romantic has to be expensive? At the end of the day, it’s the thought that counts, right? Right.

If you’re looking for some ideas, we’ve got you covered. Here are five fun, creative — and cost-effective — activities you and your partner can do:


  1. Make a Valentine’s Day CARd.
    Why buy a Valentine’s Day card to express your love when you can just post a whole bunch of sticky love notes or your special someone’s car, like this?

  2. Catch a movie at the drive-in.
    Although drive-ins aren’t as popular as they used to be, that’s all the more reason for you to go — quality alone time. Not to mention, drive-ins usually show more than one movie and the tickets usually run much cheaper than the regular movie theater.

  3. Have a romantic picnic in your car.
    Since a lot of places are cold during the winter, having a romantic picnic outside may not be the best idea. So why not have it in your warm, cozy car? You can do it while you’re at the drive-in or maybe at a scenic spot under the stars.

  4. Take a drive down memory lane.
    You can plan a fun, special night of going to all of your favorite spots together. Here’s an idea: write out some clues on notecards for your significant other to read during the drive and make a scavenger hunt out of it!

  5. Go on a road trip.
    Nothing like a trip on the open road. Fun, scenic and plenty of quality time.
