Date night is one of the best nights of the week. This is where you get to spend some time with your partner and really relax together. Of course, if you are heading out to dinner or going to a movie, this can cost a lot of money. The good news is that there are ways to make date night more affordable by doing things that are free or don’t cost much money.

In this article, we will tell you all about some of these ideas so keep reading to find out what made our list:

5 Affordable Ideas For Date Night

Picnic At The Beach

The first date night idea to make our list is a picnic at the beach. If you live near a beach then all you need is some food, a picnic blanket, and some candles (because it will be in the evening). Picnics can be very affordable, as long as you don’t go overboard with the food. This will be incredibly romantic, and you should be able to have some quiet time together. 

Don’t live near a beach? A park would be romantic as well.


Have you ever thought about transforming a pick-up truck into somewhere that you can relax? Having a pick up with a spacious truck bed like the Sierra 1500 is perfect for a romantic night of stargazing.

Grab some pillows, a blanket and some snacks then head out somewhere that you can see the stars clearly. This will be a great way to spend time together and it won’t cost you a thing. 

Movie Night

If you can’t afford to head off to the movies to see the latest blockbuster, why not stay home and have a movie marathon in your home? Turn your living room into a home cinema and choose some movies that you will both enjoy.

Movie night can be really fun, and you can even buy some bags of popcorn to make it feel like the real thing. 

Cooking Together

Who needs to go out for a fancy meal when you can spend time cooking together? If you are a new couple, then this is a great way of spending time in the kitchen and learning how to work together. If one is more experienced, then they can teach the other how to make a dish.

This is a great idea for date night, and it is extremely affordable. 


Our final affordable idea for date night is to go for a long walk. While this might seem a little boring, it is a great way to get some fresh air. When you are walking, you can focus on each other and your surroundings. You can have long deep chats and really have some fun getting to know each other even more.
