Twenty Date Ideas Under $50

We’ve all been there. You’re both sitting on the couch, scrolling on your phones. Either having fomo of all the things your friends are doing, or frantically searching Facebook for local events. You WANT to go do something, but you’re not sure what. Going on a fancy date every week isn’t sustainable. And sometimes you don’t even want to leave the house! Yet, staying on the couch scrolling through your feed is the last thing you want to do with your night.

Today I decided to give you not just 20 ideas for things to do when those days hit, but I also broke it down in different budgets. These four categories can help you get off the couch, shut off your phone, and do something a little more exciting for your next impromptu date night!

Just looking for something to do after you finished up your workday early? Give these a go! My personal favorite is number three.

Okay, we've all experienced this moment. You're both sitting on the couch, it's about 5:15pm on a Friday, and it's supposed to be date night.

You want to do something fun, but not stay out too late or spend too much money. All you're looking for is a relaxing evening out with the person you love, but still somewhat creative. Well, don't look away now, because I've got exactly what you're looking for! Well, twenty of them to be exact. Yes, I'm talking twenty new date ideas that won't break the bank or keep you out past your bedtime (hey, sleep is very important). My personal favorite is number nine!
