Ah Valentine's Day, the one day of the year when you can flaunt your relationship in the most EXTRA way possible. For singles, it's not so fun because it's another reminder of how single you are... yay! Regardless of whether you're bae'd up, single and swipin (shameless Tinder plug) or just doing your thing solo, you'll love these Valentine's Day date ideas. Before you single babes go ham in the comments about how this doesn't apply to you I just want to remind you that you can bookmark these ideas and save 'em for a later date (get it???) or you can do them with your girl gang.

 

1. An outdoor picnic

We're not the biggest fans of the great outdoors but we love a good spread! Treat yourself (and bae) to an assortment of cheeses, crackers and the most Insta-worthy edible arrangement your followers will ever see.

 

2. Take 'em to the movies

If you're ballin' on a budget then this doesn't seem like a great idea, but you can find a few sweet Airbnbs in your local area and most importantly, within your price range, if you look hard enough.

 

7. Take a dancing class

9. Get lit (and by that I mean a candlelit dinner)

 10. Get turnt (on a budget)

Nothing compares to turning up with the one you love most and being able to go home and cuddle afterwards.
