Date nights are the best nights. Whether you’ve been together for 5 months or 5 years, there are always opportunities to make more memories together. It doesn’t have to be an expensive affair either, you can have the perfect date even if you’re on a tight budget. Here’s some amazingly fun budget date ideas:
Picnic (Indoors or Outdoors)
Pack some delicious snacks in your picnic basket and head off to your local park. If there’s guaranteed sunshine, then you can make a day of it! Alternatively, if the weather isn’t on your side, why not have a picnic indoors? You could even make more of an effort and cook the snacks yourself before laying your blanket down in your living room. Pop open some prosecco and forget about the rain outside.
Be A Tourist
You think you know everything there is to know about your city? Think again. Be tourists in your own hometown and you’ll be surprised about how much you’ve missed in your other visits! Browse the (free) museums and art galleries, take a stroll around the shops and have a coffee at that café you’ve always wanted to go to.
A Cosy Night In
Sometimes you just can’t beat a cosy night in with your loved one. So throw on some comfy pyjamas, get the popcorn ready and prepare for an epic movie night. Have a marathon with movies from your favourite directors or series. And as this is movie night, you never know where the night may lead, so be sure to wear some luxury lingerie under your nightwear.
Renting bikes can be a fairly cheap way to spend the day out in the sunshine. You could drive to an area you want to explore more or keep it close to home by riding around your town. Either way, it’s the perfect first date idea if you’re stuck for what to do. You’ll probably work up an appetite with all that cycling, so stop off for some delicious ice-cream after.
Embrace the great outdoors with a low-budget camping trip! Pack all the essentials and hit the road to find the perfect camping spot. Don’t forget to bring some marshmallows for toasting on the fire.
Take A Trip to The Coast
If you feel like escaping for a while, then take a trip to your nearest coast side. It doesn’t have to be an expensive day out if you bring your own food and entertainment (volleyball is always a winner at the beach). Stay until the evening to watch the sunset for a romantic end to your day.
