Feeling the love in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, but your purse is also feeling a pinch? We’ve got just what you need. Ideal date night ideas, that won’t break the bank! Whether you’re planning an early Valentine’s date with your other half, a catch up with the girls or a big get together, there’s always something fun to do. So here are a few date night ideas that are budget-friendly, and don’t revolve around Netflix.
Go for Games Night
Rather than heading out, why not stay in and bring out your competitive streak? Whether there’s laughter between a group or just one on one, there’s plenty to choose from on games night. From Jenga and Speak Out to Twister and a good game of cards (these giant cards will definitely set the laughter off for the night). Throw on your favourite playlist and get going!
When you don’t fancy breakfast, yet it’s too early for lunch. Brunch is always a good idea! Although it’s not a Saturday night kind of thing – it’s ideal for post-Sunday strolls! Find your favourite place for brunch and make it a date destination. We also have the perfect brunch OOTD inspiration right here.
Become a Bowling Champ
A little different from the usual Saturday night escapades, but still jam-packed with fun! Suitable for all ages, bowling is something that goes down well with everyone. Even if it’s not one of your hidden talents, it makes it all the more fun!
If you’re lucky enough to live within walking distance to a weekend market, take a stroll and see what treasures you come across. If not, make a day of it and take a road trip. From organic food to cute trinkets, you never know what you may find.
It may not seem like the most exciting date at first, but there’s nothing better than getting out into the fresh air, all the while having the chats and the laughs. There’s plenty of scenic routes around Ireland, check out some ideal destinations right here.
A Perfect Picnic
Speaking of Sunday strolls, make it even cuter by bringing a prepacked picnic. The perfect spot could be anywhere. Take a trip to the beach (maybe bring an extra jumper!) or head to St. Stephens’s Green. Get all your favourite treats together, as well as a cosy blanket and off you go! We’re loving this retro picnic basket to keep everything together. How cute!
