If date night ideas were a dictionary, I would have gone from A-Z twice in my long term relationship. Luckily, some of the best date night ideas don’t have to break the bank!
Today I let you in on some of my favorite cheap date night ideas. From UberEATS al fresco style, to local music, read on for the cheap date night ideas that your other half will love….
1. Eat Out At Home
2. Make A Scrapbook
3. A Home Spa
4. Go Stargazing
Stargazing is a brilliant date night idea for anyone with an empty wallet, as it’s totally free!
Head out of the city and opt for a place with little light pollution. Take a picnic blanket, lay back, relax and see how many of the constellations you can spot.
Extra points if you take a telescope!
5. Have A Funny Youtube Marathon
Jake and I have spent far too much of our spare time glued to a computer screen giggling at funny cats and babies eating lemons on Youtube.
If you and you’re partner are in need of a good laugh, this is a fantastic cheap date night idea.
6. A Board Games Night
Jake and I are both really competitive against each other, so I recommend pairing this date night idea with a bottle of wine to stop any married-couple-style quarrels.
7. Go Mini Golfing
Many mini golfing facilities have evening sessions, making them the perfect option for a cheap date night!
8. Write A Travel Bucket List
If you and your partner are both wanderlust-junkies, spend a whole night browsing Pinterest and Google for dreamy travel destinations.
Create a travel bucket list, Pinterest board or mood board and get dreaming.
9. Explore the Local Live Music Scene
Search online to see if any local bands are playing in any bars or venues, then spend date night creating your own live music bar-crawl festival.
10. Late Night Beach Walk
The beach may be romantic during daylight hours, but it becomes some sort of scene out of a movie when the sun goes down.
Spend date night walking down the beach and dipping your toes in the ocean. Extra points if you order ice-cream from UberEATS. Food may be the way to a man’s heart, but icecream is always the way to a woman’s!
11. The Penny Date
If you have exhausted all cheap date night ideas possible, I could bet my bottom dollar that you haven’t tried the penny date!
Get in the car and flip a penny (or any coin), if it lands on heads, turn right, if it lands on tails, turn left. Keep doing this 20 times.
Wherever you end up is the destination for your date night!
If you can stand the thought of your beau seeing you stumbling around in clown shoes, this one’s for you! Bowling is always a great cheap date night idea and will result in laughter, fun and even a bit of exercise (who needs the gym when you can spend hours hurling 8lb of metal).
13. Draw/Paint Eachother
Permission to sarcastically say ‘draw me like one of your French girls’ granted.
From stick doodles, to deformed witches, drawing your partner is always a date night that guarantees endless laughter.
14. Go To The Arcade
Any kids who grew up in the 80s or 90s will appreciate a bit of whack-a-mole or air hockey.
15. UberEATS Al Fresco
Well, it’s cheaper than a flight…
16. Create A Scavanger Hunt
Google has a few pre-made ones, or you can make the date night really personal by creating your own!
17. Go To A Pub Quiz
Or play a make-shift pub quiz at home and order a restaurant-cooked meal from UberEATS.
Either way, it’s fun and gets those brain cells working.
18. Create Cocktails That Describe Each other
If you or your partner has an overflowing alcohol cabinet, why not create a cocktail that describes each other?
This cheap date night idea is fun, hilarious and involves alcohol- always a bonus 😉
19. Quiz Each Other
This is a great idea for those in the early dating stages too.
20. Go Wildlife Spotting With Torches
To have your own home date night, order the UberEATS app and order away!
