Cheap Winter Date Night Ideas
As the cooler months roll in, a lot of people head indoors for date nights. This can get pricey, so we have come up with our favorite Cheap Winter Date Night Ideas that will keep you and your partner having fun without breaking your budget. A bit of planning and a spirit of adventure will make these dates some of the best you've ever had.
At Home Movie Night: Snuggle up with your favorite winter movies and some popcorn. Nothing like getting under the comfy blankets to watch your favorite romantic comedy, holiday movie or a simple action film. Grab the popcorn, your favorite drinks and even some cheap candy for a real movie theater experience.
Snowball Fights: Bundle up and head outside to play like kids again in the snow. Have hot cocoa or cider ready when you get back inside. Build snow forts and see who can hit the most targets with snowballs. Sometimes the best dates really are just having fun like kids together again.
Go Dancing: Take a ballroom or swing dance class together. Many local community collages and dance schools have great one night events very cheap for couples. It's tons of fun to learn a few new steps to impress the friends and family with.
See Local Live Music: Hit your local dive bars for live local bands. Most don't even charge a cover, so free to get in and your only expense would be drinks if so inclined. It's a great chance to listen to local talent, and even bring another couple along for a fun double date.
Play Board Games: We often get so caught up in life that we forget about the fun basics like sitting down together and challenging each other to a game of Chess, Monopoly or the risqué strip poker when the kids are away. Enjoy a bit of competitive spirit while laughing together as a couple.
The best way to have a great cheap winter date night is to focus on each other and not so much what you are doing or how much you are spending. By stripping away all the material things around you and focusing on each other you create a better bond. Go back to the roots of your relationship and appreciate each other for what you have become.
