Guys, we know Valentine’s Day is a huge deal and comes with a whole load of expectations, we know because our kind is to be blamed for it. We also know for a fact that you have ‘nada’ planned because the pressure is too much to take, and just the thought of it have made your wallets shrivel up. Here’s some food for thought, why not put a little extra imagination than a little extra cash into planning the perfect, and budget friendly evening for your gal. SC should get extra brownie points for practically holding your hand through planning this day! Read on…

A cook-out and movie marathon!

Cook her a delicious three-course meal of her favourite cuisine and set a table out on the balcony or terrace with a laptop propped ready to play her favourite rom-coms. What will follow after dinner will more than make up for all that (apparent) hard work!


A long drive and picnic.

Get some take-out and steal her away for a long drive in the outskirts of the city. Park at a scenic and secluded spot and wine & dine on the hood of your car right under the star-studded spring sky. We promise the memory of this night will forever be etched in your hearts. 


Couples game night!

Invite your couple friends over for a drunk board games night. Better yet, make it a BYOB and BYOG (Bring Your Own Games) night! Unlimited fun and craziness guaranteed!


Drinks over a stand-up comedy show.

This is pretty self-explanatory, but make sure you get there in time to sit in the front rows for some audience participation. She’ll appreciate your ability to take a hit and laugh at yourself. It’ll also make for the perfect ice-breaker for those on their first dates.


Foodie love!

If your love blossomed over your love for food and you absolutely have to take the traditional approach and go out for dinner, make a list of your and her favourite fast/street-food joints in the city and dare her to hit all of them in one night! We’re drooling already!
