Date Night Ideas for Couples on a Budget
Are you saving up for that special trip overseas, or maybe you just renovated your home? There are times during our relationships when we need to be a little bit frugal in order to realize our dreams and goals. That doesn’t mean, however, that the romance has to go out the window.
Follow these budget-friendly date ideas to keep the romance alive while you’re adhering to your budget.
Dining in is a lot cheaper than dining out, and preparing a meal together can make you feel confident, accomplished, and even a little sexy. You could even cook in your lingerie if you want to turn up the heat a little.
Build a Fort
What could be more fun than reconnecting with your partner in a little blanket fort? Sometimes we need to reconnect with our inner child in order to hear our own voice. Allow yourself to dream a little, and tell your partner all about these dreams, visions and goals for the future.
Go for A Hike
If you are planning a date day over the weekend, hiking is a cheap date with many benefits. Not only are you getting out and explore nature, you’re breaking a sweat and releasing endorphins. Make it fun by having a picnic at a lookout point and taking some fun pictures along the way.
Games with a Twist
Board Games are definitely not just for kids, and you can add a little bit of an adult element to them by creating your own rules. For instance, strip poker or truth and dare. Bring back the element of surprise, and see how it influences your relationship.
