20 Cheap and Fun Date Ideas From Christian Personal Finance

20 Cheap and Fun Date Ideas

Go Shopping

1. Thrift-store marathon

Basically you map out a bunch of thrift stores in your area and visit each one and look for bargains. This is really fun when you have a specific treasure you have in mind. For more detail check out the thrift store shopping tips article from a few months ago.

2. Garage sale shopping

Similar to the thrift-store marathon, you just spend a couple hours hitting up garage sales. Set a $10 budget and see who can find the best treasure.

3. Visit Display Homes

I always love visiting new display homes and getting ideas for the next move!

4. Test Drive

Visit car dealerships and test drive some of your favorite cars.

Stay Inside

5. Movie Night

Head over to the library to pick up free movies for a movie marathon (or find some free movies online). For ideas, find some classics that you haven’t seen from the top 100 movies of all-time. Complete it with a blanket, popcorn, and your favorite beverages.

6. Get Cooking

One of you make the other’s favorite meal, and the other one make the other’s favorite dessert. Then enjoy them both together.

7. Re-arrange!

Give the rooms in your house a fresh look by re-arranging the furniture in each of the rooms in your house.

Go Outside

8. See the great outdoors

Head over to and find a trail near you and get hiking. This is a great outdoor date that often facilitates great conversation.

9. Biking

If you already have them, you can just start riding. If you don’t many places rent them by the hour.

10. Stargazing

If it is a cloudless night, you could head to the library and find some astronomy books. Find out which constellations are showing and look for them in the sky. Grab a cozy blanket and enjoy laying under the starts together.

11. Got snow?

Go pick up a couple sleds and ride the slopes to your hearts’ content.

Go somewhere

12. Sip coffee together

Go to a local coffeeshop and sip and converse. For whatever reason my wife and I tend to have great conversations while we are sitting in coffeeshops.

13. Roller-skating

I haven’t done this in probably 20 years, this would definitely be a fun date!

14. Ice-skating

How about ice-skating. Bonus: find an outdoor rink!

15. Bowling

Make it more fun by changing the rules.

16. Driving range

This can be particularly fun if you are terrible golfers. Most driving ranges have clubs you can use if you don’t have any.

17. Have a Photoshoot

Grab your point and shoot digital camera and start driving. Find interesting places and take pictures of each other.

18. Go see some local music

Search for some local venues on the web and go see a band you’ve never heard of. Bonus: bring a posterboard sign telling them how much they rock!

19. Take a pottery class together

A messy and fun date – if you are good, you might even get some decorations out of the deal as well.

20. Random Driving

Start at your house. Before you get to an intersection, flip the coin. Heads you turn right; tails you turn left. Guess where you will end up.
