Here are more ideas for a cheap date that is sure to fit your budget:

Cheap Date Ideas

  1. Play an outdoor game. Whether you’re playing horseshoes, croquet, or just tossing a Frisbee, a game outdoors can be a great way to have some fun and get some fresh air with your sweetie.
  2. Go sledding. This one’s a little dependent on where you live and what the weather is like, but if it’s feasible, sledding is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. The next time it’s cold and snowy, head to the nearest hill with a sled and your loved one.
  3. Visit a homemade candy shop. This is a perfect way to pick up some sweets for your sweetie. A whole box of high end chocolates can be quite costly. However, for only a couple of dollars at a candy store, you can both pick out something like a gourmet truffle and in some cases even see how they were made.
  4. Go antiquing. Check out some local antique stores with your sweetie. You might find some deals that even you can afford. If not, it’s always free to take a look around.
  5. Visit a local museum. From history to science and everything in between, there are often state-run museums available in your area free of charge. Also, be on the lookout for limited time exhibits or special events that can make this a good repeat date idea.
  6. Go for a scenic drive. Sometimes just taking the scenic route can be enough for a fun date. Spending time together in the car can also be a great opportunity to really talk to your partner.
  7. Visit local thrift stores. Bag up some of your old clothes or items you’re not using and take them along. You can usually trade them in for other cool stuff. Browsing for free goodies can be a lot of fun, especially when you’re with your sweetie!
  8. Make a music video parody. We all remember the “Call Me Maybe” and “Harlem Shakes” video parody crazes. Perhaps you and your loved one can start the next one. Set up a camera, blast a song, and lip synch your way to possible Internet fame!
  9. Visit a local library or book store. Spend the day browsing the racks and cuddling in the sitting areas. You can even find out when authors make appearances for book signings or discussions. If you and your partner are big fans of the written word, this can make for a great date!
  10. Take a free class on a mutual interest. Do you and your loved one have something you’ve always wanted to learn about? Check with your local community college about what free non-credit courses they offer. Taking one with your sweetie can be fun, especially if it’s something hands-on like a sculpting or cake decorating course.

Dating doesn’t have to go by the wayside just because you’re short on cash. With a little creativity, you and your partner can still enjoy a variety of activities at little or no cost. Sometimes these activities can be even more meaningful to your loved one since you have to put some thought into them. So use one of these suggestions and have a great (and cheap) date!
