Do you want to go out with your significant other but don’t want to spend a fortune on a date? Since we live in a time where we seek to save money wherever and whenever we can, it is good to know that there are still things that you can do and enjoy without emptying your wallet. Here are some ways to save money while going out with your spouse and having fun! And they only cost $20 or less! Enjoy!
Inexpensive ideas for dates involving food:
Why don’t you and your spouse invite some of your friends over and ask everyone to bring their favorite recipes and the ingredients to make them? You can have your own cooking class at home, since this is an inexpensive way to have fun with your friends and also eat new foods and try out some new recipes. The next time, the next cooking class can take place at one of your friends’ place and it will be your turn to bring your favorite recipes and ingredients in order to make something delicious to eat.
Inexpensive ideas for dates involving art:
Are you interested in art but don’t know what you should do or where you should go for an inexpensive date? Why don’t you consider going to an art gallery in your area? Most art galleries are free, so you should check out the latest by artists of your interest in your local area.
If both of you are more interested in books, you should check out a local book reading. They are also free and you could also meet the authors of the books you like. Go and grab some coffee and chat with your spouse about your latest read!
Inexpensive ideas for dates involving sports:
So you and your spouse are into sports and love being active. As Christmas approaches and it’s getting winterly outside, why don’t you two go ice skating? If you own skates, ice skating at a public rink is often free. If not, it is not that expensive and you don’t have to be a pro to look good on ice. Just enjoy the time you spend with your loved one and share some laughs when one of you (or probably both of you) falls down. Afterwards, you could stop by a diner to have some hot chocolate and dessert.
Inexpensive ideas for at-home dates:
So you don’t feel like going out but you still want to do something exciting with your significant other? Why don’t you both take a relaxing bath and give each other massages? You can listen to music and drink some wine or champagne. Afterwards you could spend some quality time in the bedroom and get even more relaxed!
If you both like to watch movies but don’t want to go to the cinema, you could have a movie theme night. You could match your taste for food with your taste in movies. If you like Italian movies for example, you could cook up some pasta to match the movie. If you like American movies, then have some popcorn and enjoy the time spent with your spouse. Unlike at the cinema, you can be as loud as you want, because you won’t disturb anybody since you are at home!
Have fun and enjoy these inexpensive dates! To get more ideas for inexpensive dates, pick up The Nest Magazine Winter 2008.
