28 Valentine’s Day Ideas & Romantic Gestures to get you ready for a month of romance

28 Valentine’s Day Ideas & Romantic Gestures to get you ready for a month of romance

Here at Wild Goat HQ, we’re all for experiences, not things (the true secret to happiness), so we’ve compiled a list of 28 inexpensive Valentine’s Day ideas & romantic gestures to get your creative juices flowing and keep you loved up the entire month of February!

We all know what February means …Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (along with all of the commercialisation that goes with it). So whether the 14th of February fills you with excitement, dread or indifference, our team thinks it’s a nice reminder that spoiling yourself, or loved ones, should be a part of your daily routine.

Before we begin, don’t start fretting over your bank balance, as there are lots of ways to be romantic on the cheap. The added benefits of this line of thinking is that you can afford to be romantic year round, finding little, inexpensive ways to show the one you love that you appreciate them, week in week out.

Tip: If you’re ready to get those romantic juices flowing (we know they’re in there somewhere), but have no idea where to start, then look no further. Our Wild Goat go-to for anything romantic starts with the humble picnic rug, as you can whip it out on a romantic whim and take in an unexpected moment together, wherever that may be. Our personal favourites are by the oh-so-talented Wanderingfolk. Their gorgeous variety of textured picnic rugs are printed on high quality waterproof canvas (made to last a lifetime) and come with a handy woven strap, for ease of carrying. Beware of the adventures which may follow!
