Romantic SunsetUnlike what most people think, going on a nice date with your wife or girlfriend each and every time doesn’t have to be a costly affair. You just have to know a few savvy tips and pointers to easily pull it off with flying colors.

Cheap doesn’t automatically mean tasteless when it comes to dates. If you’re looking to give the most special woman in your life one excellent date after another without draining your bank account, here are a few thrifty yet exciting ideas that will surely help you do just that in no time at all:

Give a whole new meaning to “movie night.”

Instead of dropping by your local cinema to catch the newest box-office hit, you can easily rent a movie and watch it at home with your wife or girlfriend.

Apart from saving you lots of dollars, you can also browse for the titles that you’d actually want to watch with her. Plus, you can eat whatever movie snacks you like and even grab a blanket in case you want to snuggle during the movie.

Watch the sunset together.

Sunsets never lose their appeal as one of the most romantic spectacles you can ever get in on. What makes the deal all the more awesome is that you don’t have to spend even a single cent just to get the best view.

All you have to do is visit the beach or some other spot that you can see the sunset clearly, grab a couple of lawn chairs and you’re good to go. You can even take the experience up a notch by bringing a bottle of champagne for you and your lady to share.

Get active.

Sweating it out is a great way to release¬†endorphins¬†or “happy hormones” in the brain. Apart from using exercise as a way to stay as healthy as you can, you can also turn it into one of the most unique dates with your wife or girlfriend by biking or taking an energetic walk around your neighborhood.

The activity won’t just keep you as hale and hearty as possible but will also be an opportunity to bond even closer with your special someone.

Learn a new recipe.

Women have a soft spot for guys who know their way around the kitchen. That is why it is more economical and smarter to learn a new recipe and cook it for her instead of taking her to dinner at the fancy restaurant, which can easily demolish a sizable portion of your finances. You can also up the ante on your romantic meal by playing sweet tunes in the background, pouring your favorite wine and lighting candles.

Check out your local flea market.

While this isn’t necessarily categorized as a free activity, you can make this one into a fun date by hitting up a flea market or garage sale and see who can score the best deal. You can even check out houses for sale in your area, too, and have free muffins or brownies while at it.
