Fun Cheap Date Ideas

Updated on October 11, 2012

There is no reason for you to spend a fortune on dating. In this article I will suggest a number of fun cheap date ideas. I have found the ones, that really involves both of you, to be the most romantic.

There are a number of good ideas here, so you should have no trouble finding one which is perfect for your relationship.

Romantic cheap date ideas

Go stargazing
It's easy enough to spread out a blanket, lay back and look at the stars. You can start the conversation by looking for constellations or describing what patterns you see. This is the best of the fun night date ideas. Just make sure it is a cloudless and windless night.

Complete a puzzle
If the weather is rainy why not sit down and try to complete one of those 1,000 piece puzzles together.

Fly a kite together
The key is to have one kite for the both of you. Public parks are great for this kind of date.

Go to a poetry reading
These tend to be either cheap or free. Research it on the internet, there is sure to be one in your town.

Go to the park and feed the ducks
This is a nice relaxing date idea and you will have plenty of time to talk.

Go to the library
Go to the library and read your favorite children's books, to each other.

Beach date ideas

The beach is a beautiful fun place to have a cheap date.

Build a sandcastle
The key is to build one together, not each their own. You can make them as elaborate as you like.

Sit at the beach and watch the sunset
It's a very simple date, but it gives you a chance to have a real hart to hart conversation.

Take a walk

Collect a jar full of seashells
It is simple enough and you can take the jar home to remind you of your date.

Go snorkeling
If you like adventure, taking your date snorkeling, can make for an unforgettable experience.

Fun inexpensive date ideas

Go cycling or rollerblading
I recommend getting a map and planning the journey before you attempt it.

Go volunteering together
If you have a cause which you both support, why not make a date out of it. In our area we have a charity which goes out and cleans rivers and other public areas of litter.

Babysit together
Volunteer to babysit some of your friends kids, so they can have a 'night out'. This is a great opportunity to show your boyfriend/girlfriend how good you are with kids. Then once you have sent the kids off to bed, you can curl up in front of the TV together.

Bake some cookies together
Preparing food together is a fun cheap dating activity.

Build a snowman
Snow is great fun. Try making snow angels 2.
