Go for a Wine Tasting Date
To enjoy a classy date on a tight budget, you should really consider going to a vineyard during a scheduled wine tasting event. For a nominal donation, you get to enjoy tasting all the wine that particular winery has to offer and may even get to take home a commemorative wineglass or two. Most wineries even offer wine tastings completely free of charge! Isn’t that great?
While you are there, you should consider asking the staff for the best menu pairing combinations and purchase a wine that will go best with what you have prepared for a romantic candle-lit dinner. You can also do it the other way around – purchase a good bottle of wine or two and buy what you need for dinner on the way home. You’ll have an elegant experience and make a lot of savings dating on a budget!
Try the Coffee House Dating Experience
If you both love a great cup of coffee, why don’t you indulge your taste buds on a completely luxurious and romantic coffee house experience? You and your date can bask in the relaxing atmosphere and enjoy a decadent menu without spending a lot of money. Sounds good enough ? Well, it should! So, why don’t you start looking for an elegant coffee house that fits the bill? Your date will enjoy it!
Explore the Great Outdoors
More than just having a picnic at some nice park, you can also go canoeing or kayaking, go bird watching or do some star gazing with your date. Local college observatories offer free admission to the public during the school year while the other two options will only cost a few dollars at the most. You may likewise want to go out fishing and then cooking whatever you catch for dinner. Consider these cost-saving ideas and you’ll get to spend a lot of quality time with your date without paying top dollars for it.
Go for a Test Drive
Have you ever tried taking your date on a test drive? If you haven’t yet, test driving a sports car together can be a lot of fun, especially if your date is of the adventurous kind.
Have Fun at a Mini-Golf or a Batting Cage
If you want your date to have a uniquely good time, you can spend some time playing with her on a mini-golf or batting cage. There is a great chance that she will appreciate the experience since most women haven’t had the chance to play it while they were young.
Going out on a date doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive. You just have to be a little more creative in planning it out and you can be sure that you and your date will have a date to remember – even if it is dating on a budget.
