Celebrities really push the boat (or yacht) out when it comes to treating bae to a lavish Valentine’s date night, but with the average Brit spending just £28.45 on their own celebrations, just how can you have a champagne Valentine’s date, when you’re working with a lemonade budget?

With the help of Missy Empire, in the run up to Valentine’s Day 2019, we’ve picked a selection of the most extravagant celebrity Valentine’s, and figured out how to recreate the date, without the pricetag!

Justin gave Selena on a truly ‘Titanic’ experience on Valentine’s Day when he rented out the 20,000 seat Staples Center in Los Angeles for their own private screening of the iconic blockbuster. The couple ate steak served with pasta (from the Lexus Club restaurant), followed by a concert by Selena’s long-time gal pal, Demi Lovato.

How much cash did they splash?

It is rumoured that Justin and Selena’s Valentine’s date night would have set them back a whopping $110,000 (and that’s just to rent the Staples Center).

What did they wear?

Selena wore a white bodycon dress and Justin wore a smart shirt and sneakers.

Valentine’s in NYC – KimYe’s Fancy AF V’Day Date

Kanye West is known for his luxe gestures (remember when they got engaged?!) so it was no surprise when he pulled out all of the stops on Valentine’s Day.

He surprised Kim with a fancy AF meal in one of the most famous Italian eateries in New York City, Carbone. A meal here can run into hundreds-of-dollars per person (depending on the wine you pick), but for the West’s, money really is no object when it comes to Valentine’s Day.

To top off this extra date night, Kanye had secretly installed a flower wall in Kim’s house. The floral wall was filled with delicate white orchids and roses (which was meant to remind Kim of their wedding day – another extravagant event) as well as some gorgeous jewellery to add to her collection.

How much cash did they splash?

A typical meal at Carbone is around $400 per person, the flower wall and jewellery reportedly cost Kanye upwards of $10,000!

What did they wear?

Kim rocked her signature style with a sexy high-waisted velvet maxi skirt and bandeau top, whilst Kanye kept things casual with a brown bomber jacket and white sneakers.
