Inexpensive Date Ideas12:00 PM
Valentine's Day is fast approaching and whether we admit or
not we still think of something to make this day extra especially not just for
us but for our other half as well. One way is preparing for a date. But
sometimes when we talk about date, the first thing that bump into us is the
idea of spending a lot but it's really what we think it is.
1. Cook for your date. Cooking your own romantic meal is a great alternative to eating out. Preparing a meal for your date, allows you to get creative and share some of your favorite dishes. The key to pulling this date off is to create a relaxed and romantic atmosphere. Dress the table with linen, nice crockery and perhaps even light a candle to set the mood. Don’t despair if you aren't skilled in the culinary arts; enlist the help of a friend or family member to help you prepare the perfect feast.
2. Go for a stroll outside. Taking long walks together can be a relaxing way to enjoy each other’s company. Whether it's a walk along the beach, taking the dogs for some exercise or ambling through a forest trail; this date not only gives you time together but it's also a healthy option, giving you fresh air and plenty of exercise. Perhaps the best thing about this date idea is that it won’t cost you a thing, walking is completely free.
3. Go on a picnic date. If the weather is mild, picnics can be the ideal date to choose, especially if you like being outdoors. They are relatively inexpensive, as most of the items you will need can be found in your cupboards at home. Picnics are also incredibly romantic, especially on a nice summer’s day. Pack a hamper full of sandwiches, treats and refreshments and arrange to meet your date at a local park. Don't forget to pack a blanket to sit on; your date won’t appreciate getting dirt on their outfit.
