Winter weather offers a great opportunity for cozy, creative dates, but if you’ve already spent a lot of cash on holiday gifts and events, then these cheap date ideas are perfect for you. Enjoy the season without worrying about spending too much money!
Connect in the Kitchen
Try taking a cooking class to learn new recipes that you can test together later. Check online for local deals to save on the sign-up fee, or just re-create the experience in your own kitchen by tackling a new recipe together.
Even if you’re not great at dancing, doing something new will bring a fresh energy to your date, and you’ll get to see a different side of each other — and probably laugh . . . a lot.
Bowling is an easy way to save money while still getting out and doing something fun. Known for scoring strikes? Make a bet: winner picks the next date plan. Bowling is also perfect for group dates — the more the merrier.
Stay Outside and Skate
Make the most of the wintry weather by sticking to one of the seasonal classics. Skate, sled, or build a snowman, then take it inside for a cozy cup of hot chocolate and a movie marathon.
Visit a museum, take a bus tour, or spend the afternoon snapping pictures of your city’s most famous landmarks. Keep an eye on your city’s free museum days and check out the places you’ve always meant to see but never have. End the day by rehashing your adventures over a homemade dinner.
