5 Cheap Date-Night Ideas
Whether you’re planning your first date with someone or looking for inspiration and new ideas to treat your partner, date night doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Here are a few examples of how you can spend quality time with your lover without having to break the bank.
1. Take a walk
Get outdoors and go for a nice romantic walk. Look online for interesting paths in your local area and take a stroll around your neighbourhood. This will give you a chance to talk with that special someone away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You may even find yourself in an area you never knew existed, it may even become one of your favourite places to go.
2. Have a Picnic
Setting down a rug and feeding each other your favourite foods is plenty of fun, as corny as it sounds. If the weather is warm you could venture down to your local park or even further afield if you’re feeling adventurous. It doesn’t even matter if it is not sunny outside. If the weather is bad, set down a rug out in front of the fireplace instead, it’s a romantic a setting as any.
3. Board Games
Dust off those board games that have been lying around or look for some great deals online. Nothing gets the sex drive pumping like a little competition, so, if you’re looking to get lucky, game-night might be just the thing you need to ignite the spark. You will have a lot to talk about as you try to out-manoeuvre each other, so there’s no need to worry if you’re a little tongue tied. If this is the first meeting you’ve had with this individual, playing games is great way to break the ice and get to know each other.
4. Movie Night
Has the object of your desire seen your all-time favourite film, and have you seen theirs? Settle down on the sofa with a bag of popcorn and enjoy watching your favourite movies. You can learn a lot about a person by watching their favourite film with and seeing which parts make them laugh or cry. There’s a reason as to why Netchix and chill has become such a popular phase, nothing makes two people want to get their freak on more than sitting in a dark room. Putting on a movie is the perfect excuse you need to switch off the lights.
5. Evening Classes
Is there a class or hobby you’ve always fancied trying out but never got around to? Have a look around your local area and see what’s on offer. The good news, there are a lot of classes that will offer a free introductory lesson in the hope that you’ll sign up for more if you enjoy it. Therefore, you may not have to pay for your date if this is the first time you and your love interest are attending a particular venue. Also, doing something that neither of you has ever done is a great conversation starter and the quickest way to create fond memories.
