Five ideas for an affordable date night
We all like to let our special someone know that we appreciate them, but let’s face it– dating can get quite expensive! From first dates where impressions matter, to the traditional date night, which is in need of excitement, we need to have fantastic date ideas that won’t burn a hole in the wallet. Here are some fantastic suggestions that will keep your budget in check and your date content.
Discover a New Pub
If you and your loved one have been visiting the same watering hole for ages, maybe it is time to shake things up. The UK is known across the globe for a variety of authentic pubs, and the chances are there are plenty of them that you have yet to discover. Go online and search for local hotspots, and visit a new one each weekend. At the cost of just beverages, you may discover a new favourite spot.
DIY Craft Night
For those couples that wish to stay at home and enjoy crafting together, put together a DIY night for your loved one. Purchase supplies and materials needed (typically at a much lower cost than attending a workshop), and look at some videos on YouTube to get endless possibilities of DIY crafts. You’ll learn a thing or two!
As spring is around the corner, grab a blanket and head over to your favourite park to relax in the grass with your date. Instead of packing a lunch, keep things fun by ordering a different mixture of meals and conduct a taste test of various cuisine types. Select a takeaway to deliver a selection of dishes (e.g. Italian, Indian, and Thai) to your location and enjoy a variety of hot cuisine while dining under the sun.
A Night at the Theatre
The National Theatre offers standing room tickets at an insanely low cost, so you can enjoy a ballet or musical with your date without burning a hole in your wallet. This is a fantastic last-minute date idea, as the standing room often has space available and costs just a fiver. Opt in for a matinee show to beat the crowds.
One Hour at a Skating Rink
What’s a more perfect way to end off the winter season than to go for one last skate with your date? Although outdoor rinks may no longer be available, indoor rinks are. This date will only cost you one hour of skating and skate rentals if you don’t own any (and perhaps a hot cuppa to finish things off!)
