With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s time to start planning how you will celebrate the special day. Thankfully, if you live in one of Live Easy’s luxury apartments in Pretoria, you can still have a really good time.

One of the best ways to do it is to have a Valentine’s celebration in your own space. Not only does this provide more privacy to be as romantic as you like, but it is also more cost-effective. 

Ultimately, the key to having a good Valentine’s Day celebration in your own space is to make it personal and thoughtful. The effort you put into creating a special atmosphere will be appreciated and go a long way towards making it a memorable occasion.

With that said, here are some tips for celebrating Valentine’s Day in your own space on a budget.

Cook A Homemade Dinner Together

Going out to a restaurant on Valentine’s Day is not only passé but also expensive. You will find that most restaurants are overbooked and overcrowded and will charge double their normal rates. 

Sidestep this by choosing a fun recipe you and your partner can cook at home together. Try something new and exciting, like a fondue or a picnic on the living room floor, to make it an intimate experience. 

Create A Cosy Atmosphere

You can easily transform the atmosphere of your apartment using simple and inexpensive DIY decorations. Some ideas might include candles, fairy lights, or other items to create an intimate and magical vibe. 

Fairy lights are being sold cheaply as many stores will try to get rid of their excess Christmas decorations after the holiday season. Cut out paper hearts or use old wine bottles as candle holders. You could also use repurposed Christmas decorations, such as tinsel or simple homemade goodies, for a personal touch.

Plan A Special Movie Night

It can be quite romantic to have a special movie night with a twist. Instead of going to a movie theatre or sitting on the couch and watching TV like you always do, try adding a fun element by making homemade tickets for admission or creating a list of your favourite movies that you can choose from. 

Prepare some budget-friendly snacks and make a comfy bed on the floor in front of the couch where you can snuggle up in comfort. A few homemade treats and a glass of wine can set the mood.

Play Some Games

There are lots of fun and intimate board games or card games that you can play with your partner. This is a nice, budget-friendly way to have some fun and connect, creating a sense of playfulness and lighthearted enjoyment for both of you.
