There’s absolutely no reason to give up on date night, just because you’re short on cash. It’s entirely possible to have fun without spending a penny. Here’s how…
Date Night Ideas:
Take a Hike
A long, romantic walk through the woods doesn’t cost anything. Not only is it a great way to exercise, you never know what you’ll see along the trail.
Head to a Park
Many times, going to a park provides you access to games like tennis or handball. If sports isn’t your thing it simply gives you a place to enjoy the outdoors.
Have a Movie Marathon
Staying in and watching movies can be a lot more fun than going to the theater. Pop some popcorn, grab your favorite drinks, get cozy on the couch and let the marathon begin!
Ride a Bike
Go for a ride through a nearby neighborhood neither of you have explored. Mapping it out before hand helps to ensure you won’t miss anything.
Download a Karaoke App
There are lots of free apps out there that allow you have your own private karaoke party right in your own living room.
Light a Backyard Bonfire
If you have a fire pit, all you need to have a romantic evening is gather together yummy s’mores ingredients and wait for sundown.
Print Out Fun Activities
There are tons of printables available online. Categories include things like trivia, scavenger hunts and truth or dare. And, don’t forget adult coloring pages.
Visit the Library
If you and your date like to read why not plan a trip to the library. Spend time discussing your favorite books and authors.
Cook a Meal
Staying in and cooking a meal together can be more fun than going out to eat. For best results, pick a meal that both of you are comfortable preparing.
Play a Game
Whether it’s a classic board game or a video game, having a game night together can lead to all kinds of no-cost fun.
These are just 10 (of many) ways to accomplish free date night. Feeling adventurous? There’s nothing that says you can’t combine two ideas into one. Now… get planning!
