Definately do something different if you can!
Picnic in the park (nicest one you can get to of course) or a beach? If budget extends maybe include some lux foods like lobster or smoked salmon or cavier or whatever.
Is there a public garden or botantical garden near you? These can be very cool, romantic and cheap. An arborium would also work.
A museum trip?
Maybe no cinema trip and add the price of tickets/popcorn etc to your budget for dinner and go to a more expensive place than you would usually try?
If you don't have kids, or can send them to their grandparents/aunts/whatever, maybe don't go out, and spend the date budget on the best champagne and nibbles you can afford and have an at home candlelit picnic. If the budget extends far enough, maybe buy new sheets and a sexy neglige?
Ok, those are the ideas off the top of my head...
