7 cheap date ideas


Dating can often result in some expensive days out and over spending, but it doesn’t have to burn a hole in your wallet! 

It can sometimes be hard to think of original and entertaining ideas that will help bring out your personality, so why not jump out of your comfort zone and try something completely different. What’s the worst that could happen?

To help you plan a successful and low cost date, we’ve put together a list of some ideas which will still keep you entertained.

From volunteering, to a trip to the beach, there’s sure to be something which will grab your attention.

1. Make homemade pizzas (with crazy toppings)

Instead of going out for a restaurant date, why not make your own pizzas. Pick and choose which toppings you have and let your inner chef take hold.

2. Volunteer together

Volunteering will help you get to know your date and will also boost your spirits as you offer your time to a worthy cause.

3. Go out for dessert

Who wants a main meal anyway! Go to a restaurant and skip straight to dessert and sample what they have to offer.

4. Play the tourist

Why not go out and see what your home town really has to offer. Visit those places you never thought to take a second look at.

5. Hire a boat

Hire a boat or canoe for a journey down the river. Soak up your surroundings, but make sure not to fall in!

6. Head to the beach

Why not go to the beach for a day of relaxation, laying in the sun and going for a paddle in the sea. Maybe one to plan in for spring or summer!

7. Go to IKEA: 500 Days of Summer Style  

This is a great creative idea, you can grab food at the Ikea snack bar and sit on the copious amounts of sofas and chairs available. You’ll get to find out each other’s creative side and sense of style too! Why not take some inspiration from Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the movie 500 Days of Summer.
