Romance is good because it shows your partner how much you care about and love them. It’s also fun to come up with new ways to surprise them. But romance can sometimes cost a lot of money especially if you have not considered how to be romantic on a budget. Expensive restaurants, big bouquets of flowers, and weekend trips away somewhere fun all add up.

To keep the romance alive, it’s much better to do smaller, less expensive things more often than big, grand gestures that cost too much and make you nervous because you maxed out your credit card instead of letting you enjoy the feelings behind it all. So here are some ways to be romantic on a budget. They are all easy and much cheaper than the “usual” romantic gestures you might see advertised.

Make Something

From plush animals to sweets to clothing, you’ll find a plethora of adorable gifts for your beloved one at the stores. It’s fantastic to purchase your partner something which will make them think of you, but the expense of doing so can rapidly build up. So why not make something instead of buying it?

If you put in the time and effort to create something, whether it’s a painting or sketch, a knitted item, something made from wood blanks and frames, or a song or piece of music, it will always be appreciated. For whatever it is, these one-of-a-kind, handcrafted gifts will be treasured forever by your partner since they will always remind them of you. This is what they mean when they say it’s the thought that counts. 

Go Out When Everyone Else Is Asleep

If you go out when everyone else is sleeping, like early in the morning, you can act like you are the only ones in the world. Take a bike ride or just go for a walk and really look at the streets, which are usually full of people and noise but will now be entirely different. Hold hands and just go where the road takes you. Watch the world wake up as the sun rises and people start to go to work.

You might find a bar or café that is open all night where you can get a cup of coffee and a piece of cake or something similar. Even though it seems strange, this is one of the most romantic things you can do. Being the last people in the world is a beautiful idea that will make a truly special memory.

Write A Love Letter

Because of the widespread use of email and texting, the tradition of writing a handwritten letter appears to be dwindling. When you consider that writing a love letter nowadays is such a rarity, it makes it even more romantic. Think of the joy on your loved one’s face as they read the words you penned from the bottom of your heart. Think about how long they’ll treasure that letter. You can’t help but admire it.

You don’t have to be a master poet or a great writer to write this. It must, however, be sincere and truthful, as it is intended solely for the recipient. Make no apologies for being sentimental or goofy if that’s how you’re feeling. Even though it is short, a love letter can convey a lot of emotion. Just a few heartfelt sentences might be enough to make you romantic and memorable.
