Cheap Date Ideas

Everyone always seems to be looking for some cheap date ideas. For that reason, we decided to compile a nice list of them and made them available to you. If you are looking to go on a date without breaking the bank, this article is for you.

Paper Listings

Most people don’t realize that their local newspaper has listings of cheap and often free, concerts. No matter what size town you live in, there will always be some band or person performing and doing what they love. This is a perfect opportunity to get out of the house and into a fun scene this weekend. This is one of our cheap date ideas but often times you won’t have to pay anything to listen to those great local bands.

Strap In

When was the last time you strapped on a pair of roller skates? It has probably been too long. Head to your favorite skating rink and pay the few bucks it cost to skate there. You and your date might be clumsy skaters but that makes it just that much more fun. Since this date won’t cost much more than ten bucks per couple at most, we consider this one of our cheap date ideas.

College Sports

Wherever your location may be, we are sure that you aren’t too far away from a college or university. Most colleges some sports teams or at least sport clubs and there is almost a sport event going on every single day. Check in with a specific college and write down the time of the game. The prices of tickets for college sports is often very low and yet you get to watch some very competitive game play. This goes to show that cheap date ideas can still be exciting!

Dessert Time

Who doesn’t love some tasty desserts? For this idea you will simply need to buy some quick mix for your favorite dessert. Cake mix and brownie mix only cost couple bucks and most people already have some eggs and milk in their fridge. For this idea you will simply bake whatever it is you are making, with your partner. This is quality time with your sweetie and at the end of it all you still get dessert! We don’t think that it is possible to have a bad date that ends with dessert.

Into the Darkness

Most places have some caves near by or at least some kind of historical area that gives tours. Check your local listings or do an internet search for some historical areas around your city. These places often aren’t very crowded which allows you to have some personal time with your significant other. Many of these places are free and some cost a few bucks to enter. If you do have to pay, the few bucks is usually to maintain the area or pay for the tour guides, so at least your money is going to a good cause. Who knew that cheap date ideas could also expand your knowledge?

For the Crafty Couple

Well, you don’t have to be a professional artist for this idea but some craftiness does help. For this idea you will be creating a nice birdhouse. You can either start with a prebuilt one and decorate it or you can start from scratch by cutting your own pieces of wood and then decorating it. Instructions and blueprints are all over the internet and will tell you step by step how to make a birdhouse. In the end, the birds will appreciate it and you will have had a nice few hours with your date doing something productive.

A Couple Paddles and One Moon

What is more romantic than the moonlight? How about being in a canoe with the one you love out on the water, with nothing but the moonlight shining. This is one of those cheap date ideas that you can let your imagination run wild with. You can make it a sweet date or an extremely passionate date, depending on the mood that you set. All you need is to spend some money for a canoe rental and you half way there to having the perfect date. Be sure to wear life jackets and the second half of the date is all up to you to create.

Instant Pictures

Dust off the old Polaroid and get some film ready. Head to any place with lots of people, preferably happy couples, and snap pictures for them (asking their permission first, of course). Hand them their picture and move on to the next people. This idea is very original and it is definitely a step away from the typical dinner-and-a-movie date. For that reason it made our list of the top cheap date ideas.

The Tracks

Most guys love to watch a nice car race. Why not adhere to the other persons wants and take them out for an evening of fun. Find the next car race that is happening near you and get some tickets. Like the rest of our cheap date ideas, this one will probably only cost your four or five bucks for entry. If the two of you get hungry you can always indulge in that unhealthy food such as funnel cake

Scissors and a Catalogue
