Wondering how you’re going to impress that special someone? Here are 20 ideas for a romantic date, while keeping some cash in your wallet. You can partake in these activities with a significant other, or even just a group of good friends.

1. Game Night

Bring out the old board games and deck of cards for a night of entertainment and competition. Playful competition is always a fun way to get to know one another.

2. Road Trip

Besides paying for gas money, going for a drive is completely free and relaxing, giving you time to talk and decompress. Just make sure you have a GPS in case of emergency.

3. Bowling

Spend as little as $6.00 for a night of bowling and glow in the dark lights, fast food, and a fun arcade. Perhaps invite some friends!

4. Take out

Sit down and kick back with some takeout food and a show you both enjoy.

5. A Classic

Watch the sunset and the night stars with your significant other. Make some jokes and try to find the big dipper.

6. The Beach

If you’re willing to take the trip there, take him/her to the beach. Walk along the sand and people watch.

7. Sales

Find some nearby restaurants that have specials going on or serve appetizers in large portions.

8. Thrifty

Go to your local thrift stores or look around at clearance racks and shop for cool items you thought you would never need.

9. Puppies

Take him/her to a pet supplies store or an animal shelter and play with the animals: fun for you and the animals.

10. Picture Perfect

Make your memories tangible and cute in $5 photo booths at the mall. Once it prints, you both will have one to keep.

11. Back to the Future

Create a time capsule and bury it somewhere both of you can come back to any time.

12. Caricature

Draw pictures of each other to the best of your abilities; you don’t have to be an artist for this to be a fun activity.

13. Baking

Bake cookies, cakes, cake pops, cupcakes, brownies, etc. and eat your sweet treats together. It may be a disaster or a delicious memory.

14. Bucket List

Each of you create a bucket list that you want to complete in the future. Who knows? Maybe you can complete some of them now.

15. Social Media

Look online for festivals, carnivals, or public events you can go to and have fun all day.

16. Picnic

Find a park or playground and set down a blanket for a picnic under the sky.

17. Spa Night

Dig out the face cleansers and masks for healing of your mind and your skin.

18. Cook

Even if you’re not the best cook, try doing something nice for your special someone by making a homemade meal. Even if it doesn’t turn out the best, your effort will be appreciated.

19. Bike Ride

If you have two bikes, and it’s a nice day outside, take a bike ride, enjoy a race, or just stroll with the breeze.

20. Quality Time

The most important part of a successful date is taking the time to get to know each other and talk about yourselves. Opening up can be a really good and healthy thing if you are looking for a lasting relationship.
