Affordable Date Night Ideas For Valentine’s Day

At Piglet’s Pantry HQ, we’re busy gearing up for one of our favourite days of the year – Valentine’s Day.

From as early as the 14th century, February has been celebrated as the month of romance, with lovers expressing their affection through elaborate gifts and grand gestures. The first Valentine’s Day card was penned back in the 15th century by an imprisoned Frenchman who wrote to his wife, “I am already sick of love, my very gentle Valentine”.

Since then, Valentine’s Day has flourished into an annual day of celebration for couples, friends, and families all over the world. Whether you’re keeping things low-key this year or are organising an action-packed day of fun-filled activities, we can help ensure this Valentine’s Day is the best one yet!

In this blog, we share some of our favourite affordable Valentine’s Day date night ideas, from a themed movie night to a fun DIY project for two.

Our handcrafted Valentine’s Day range features a selection of delicious cakes and bakes, sure to bring a smile to the face of someone you love. Click here to place an order before it’s too late!

Valentine’s Day | Date Night at Home

If you’re a homebody who loves spending quality time with your partner curled up with a blanket on the sofa, we’ve put together a selection of Valentine’s Day date night ideas just for you. Finding things to do on Valentine’s doesn’t have to include drafting an extensive list of elaborate plans, nor does it have to cost the earth.

Here are some of our favourite ideas that will have your loved one beaming with joy without breaking the bank.

1) Repurpose Your Favourite Books

If you and your partner are often described as a pair of bookworms, this is the Valentine’s Day date night idea for you.

Ask your partner to choose a hardback book that they think you would love and vice versa. Put on your favourite records, light some candles, pour two glasses of wine, and spend the evening creating customised sleeves for each other’s books.

The materials you use are entirely up to you – from old wrapping paper, napkins, and fabric to vintage magazines and photos – the possibilities are endless. At the end of the evening, you’ll be left with something you can treasure for years to come – and a new book to add to your TBR list!

No cosy night in is complete without snacks. At Piglet’s Pantry, our Valentine’s Blondie and Brownie Selection Box is the perfect accompaniment to an evening spent crafting with your other half.

Featuring four heart-decorated blondie squares, these letterbox brownies can be delivered straight to your door. If you would like to find out more about any of the products featured in our Valentine’s Day range, please get in touch, call us on 01903 215 054 and speak to one of our friendly advisors who will be more than happy to help.

2) Cook Up a Treat

Now, the idea of spending the evening cooking with your partner might fill you with instant dread – but hear us out.

At Piglet’s Pantry, we love any excuse to pop on our aprons, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. If you’re anything like us, you’ll agree that there’s nothing better than sitting down with someone you love and tucking into a delicious homemade meal.

From heart-shaped pies and pizzas to pink pasta (yes, you can actually buy pink pasta!), there are so many Valentine’s themed food ideas that you can have fun cooking up with your other half.

If you’re now trying to think of the perfect dessert to finish off an evening of indulging in delicious homemade dishes, we can help. Our stunningly handcrafted Valentine’s Profiteroles with a creamy mousse filling are the ideal sweet treat to end a picture-perfect evening. Ensure your Valentine’s Day date night ends with smiles all-round by shopping our Valentine’s collection today.

3) Binge an Entire Movie Franchise

We’ve all got that one movie franchise that we keep meaning to sit down and watch but can never find the time. As a couple, come up with a list of 5 movie series that you would love to see (we recommend checking what’s available on your favourite streaming service beforehand to avoid disappointment).

Once you’ve come up with your options, enter each title into an online random generator. Whichever franchise is selected is the one you’ll watch from start to finish during your Valentine’s Day date night!

To complete your cosy night in, why not put together a Valentine’s Day date night box full of your partner’s favourite treats? From our Valentine’s Gingerbread Hearts to our Valentine’s Afternoon Tea For Two, we’ve got everything you need to create the perfect personalised gift for someone you love.

If you would like to find out more about any of the products featured in our seasonal Valentine’s collection, please get in touch. Give us a call on 01903 215 054 and one of our passionate piglets will be more than happy to help you make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet!
