Planning for a date might give you a huge headache especially if you haven’t got too much spare cash to work with.
It’s your ultimate wish to make the date night a memorable one, we get it.
At the same time, you haven’t got the budget for it.
That’s okay though, because it’s the thought that really counts and there are plenty of things you can do together without burning a hole in your pocket.
Interested to know more? …
Read on for these Great & Fantastic 7 Top Cheap Date Night Ideas for those on a budget … … Enjoy!
One of the best things two dating persons (or even a couple) can do for a date, is to prepare a meal together.
Romantic dinners need not always be at fanciful restaurants.
In fact, fine dining can be unnecessarily stressful, and you’d be surprised to know that 8 out of 10 Americans don’t really fancy the idea of fine dining during a First Date!
Now go figure.
Another great way to spend time together is to order takeout, and simply enjoy each other’s company at a nice outdoor spot.
Better still, prepare some home-cooked food, so you can wow your partner and gain some brownie points while you’re at it!
Not in the mood for food?
Just some snacks and drinks could do the trick!
Make a grocery trip together, and grab some of your favorite snacks and drinks.
You’ll get plenty of great conversations going while you’re at it as well.
Just be sure to go somewhere where there’s public restrooms available.
You wouldn’t want to be caught in a situation when you need to pee, and there’s nowhere for that!
Got a nice backyard with lots of privacy, and an awesome view of the stars at night?
Don’t be embarrassed to suggest the idea!
We know you wouldn’t want to give off the wrong signals so just be upfront about things.
Importantly, let her know that the rest of the house is off limits, and that you’d send her home right after sun-gazing.
Chances are, she’d be okay with it!
Board games are best when it comes to eliminating awkward silences.
So, if you know you’re not much of a talker, go rent some board games (or borrow from friends) and you’ll be SO glad you did.
Remember to ask her what sort of games she’d prefer, and please do try to understand the board game rules, before your actual date night!
Just to include an extra activity after idea 4 – if she’s up for it, you could give her a tour around your home.
Take out your stash of family photos, or even access your laptop gallery.
You’ll be surprised by the conversations that can be sparked off from these photos!
It’s a great chance for you to take a trip down memory lane and share with your date the juicy details behind it all.
It’ll be fun!
Still hungry after you’ve both had dinner?
Why not try making milkshakes or ice cream sundaes together in your kitchen?
Besides, you’re setting things up for the next date.
Just let her know you’d love for her to be here again, to enjoy all the milkshake and ice cream sundaes you’ve made together – you definitely can’t finish all of them alone!
Most people spend more than they can afford just to achieve a ‘memorable’ date night experience.
Don’t ever fall into that trap!
Just think about it – will you be able to keep up with things after setting the bar so high at the onset?
You probably be can’t.
For that reason, it’s always good for your potential partner to know your true financial status right from the start, and that’s how true love can start to blossom.
