Is it date night, and you're looking for cheap things to do with your spouse? We all run into this problem! Sometimes, there just isn’t the money in the bank, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with the honey bun! Here are eight cheap things to do with your spouse that will be oh-so-fun!
At the top of my list of cheap things to do with your spouse would have to be a picnic. I love the simplistic romance of a nice picnic in a secluded area of the park! Pack your picnic basket with some chicken and strawberries and kick back for some good food and snuggles in the warm breeze! Your cost will be your food and that alone! That’s a deal!
If you are into enjoying Mother Nature in her finest, you might enjoy a nice hike with your Lovey Dovey! Most hiking trails are completely free, so basically, your only cost is the gas for the trip, snacks for the hike and deodorant so you don’t smell (hee hee… you sure don’t want to smell when you stop to smooch!)
3. Game Night
Bring out the kid side of you and your sweetheart with a fun-loving game night! As the two of you go head to head in your favorite board game, you just find yourself going lip to lip before the night is over! Some games I might suggest for the two of you to play would be Life, Monopoly, Checkers for those short games, and then, of course, my personal favorite…Twister! Mix the childish game of Twister with some sexy fun!
4. Dress up
I read one date idea that suggested dressing up in your most formal wear but only making a trip to your local coffee shop. This allows you the fun of dressing up and the affordability of a cheap date without anyone being the wiser. For all your fellow coffee drinkers will know, you were just at the opera!
5. Movie Night
Nothing beats a nice night at home with a movie, a blanket, some popcorn and your lover cuddled up next to you! Rent a movie for $5 or less and that is about the sum of what this date night will cost you. Not bad, right?
6. Pizza on the Roof
Ok, I know, I know, it sounds crazy. But think of the fun excitement it would be to order a pizza, grab a ladder and head for the roof to enjoy pizza by moonlight! Who says you can’t get creative? (And let’s face it, people love looking for new territory to chart in the most intimate fashion, if you know what I mean… how many people can say they have done it on the roof?!?) Your cost: Pizza and whatever the ambulance driver can be paid to stand by for a call in case things get too wild.
7. Roller Romance
It doesn’t cost very much to rent a pair of skates and go roller skating. Head out with your darling for a night on wheels. Hold hands and roll with the music or do the hokey pokey! That’s what it’s all about, after all!
8. Park Play
There is something about childish dates that I am drawn to! I suppose it is the carefree, load-lifting feeling it gives you, if only for a few moments. As adults, we live under a constant stress of work and responsibility and it’s nice to just put it away for a bit. That being said, the park is another place to go on a date. Take along some bread to feed the little ducks, push each other in the swings, throw a frisbee, go down the slide and have fun with each other! Fresh air is a healthy mood booster and will make you good and ready to cuddle when you get home.
I love that I don’t always have to worry about having money to have fun date nights. Cheap things to do with your spouse are abundant and can be just as fun (if not more fun!) than an expensive meal in the finest of all restaurants! Don’t believe me? Try it! For those of you who do believe me, what is your favorite cheap date night idea? I want to hear from you! I’m always looking for new ideas.
