This post is about cheap winter date night ideas.
With the semester coming to a close, it’s a perfect time to start spending some quality time with your significant other! Whether you are traveling home and trying to steal your high-school crush heart or in a relationship these dates will work in your favor!
A special date night doesn’t have to break your holiday budget. There are lots of great ideas that aren’t very expensive.
1. Bake Holiday Treats
Stay in one night and make some of your favorite treats. One of the best parts about winter is the yummy baked goods that come with it.
If you don’t want all the delicious treats calling your name every day, take them to friends and family!
2. Go Ice Skating
Ice skating is a classic romantic date! Local ice rinks usually have an open skate that is inexpensive. Most major cities will have outdoor runs as well if that is more your style.
It’s a great time to either show off your talent or hold onto each other to keep from falling over!
3. Build A Fort
Grab all your blankets and make a fort in the living room! You could even add some twinkle lights if you are feeling festive.
Make some hot cocoa and cookies and pull up a movie on your laptop.
4. Enjoy the Lights
There is something magical about driving around and looking at the homes decorated for the holiday season. All the lights will warm your heart on cold nights.
5. Go Sledding
Instead of forking out a ton of cash to go to a ski slope just go sledding! There’s bound to be some public hills around your town or an area in your neighborhood. Dig out your childhood sled and have some fun!
There’s no better way to end a day of sledding than warming up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa.
6. Dollar Menu Dates
Even though fast-food is super unhealthy, you know there are times when you can’t help but crave it. Instead of spending a lot of money on a fancy dinner just order off the dollar menu.
Hit up the drive-thru and grab some hot french fries. Hurry home to enjoy your feast before regret starts to settle in!
7. Go to your Favorite Book Store
Browse the shelves of books together and grab a coffee. You don’t have to love reading for it to be a good time. I’m sure you’ll both find something that interests you.
There’s something so cozy about hanging out at a book store in the winter.
8. Have Breakfast for Dinner
Winter is the best time to make breakfast for dinner. Have your significant other make some bacon and eggs, you make the chocolate chip pancakes or whatever works for you! Don’t forget the orange juice!
9. Go on a Winter Hike
Hiking in the cold isn’t everyones cup of tea, but the views are worth it! You don’t have to walk the whole trail just enjoy the scenery.
Bundle up and don’t forget the hand warmers!
10. Have a Winter Photo Shoot
Bring a friend along to be your photographer or use self-timer. Whichever you choose winter photos are adorable. Wait for a beautiful snow fall, grab your camera, and head outside.
You can do this every year and have the pictures to look back on for years!
Let love warm you this winter during any of these cheap date night ideas.
