25 Date Ideas Under $25

25 date ideas under $25

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? No?

No worries; I got you covered.

You see, my husband and I have been working hard to incorporate more date nights into our routine, and I’ve had such a fun time brainstorming fun date ideas.

I also tried to keep them on the affordable side because let’s face it, dates can add up quickly (especially when you have to factor in things like parking or a babysitter!)

So today I am excited to share with you 25 fun date ideas under $25. Choose your favorite(s), grab your partner or your best friend, and have a blast this weekend!

    1. It must have been so much fun finding all sorts of inspiration for your new house. I love that!

    1. Alice, I LOVE that idea! I’ve added it to my list for the next date night with my husband. Thanks for the great idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Oooh! Lot’s of good ideas. Thank you! Many work for outings with kids too, so they’d be great for those days when I want to do something but can’t think of anything. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. How creative! Must try mini golf! Must try any, right now the only date we have is on the coach,,,sleeping LOL

  3. I loved the intro to this post!!! ยจDo you have any fun plans for the weekend? No? Iโ€™ll fix that for you.ยจ It made want to read this even more, because the truth is, no, I didnยดt have any๐Ÿ˜‚ I think going to an ice cream shop is my favorite! These are great ideas! Thank you for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I’m always thinking of fun and inexpensive things I can do with friends or my boyfriend. I think my favorite on your list is definitely mini golf!

    1. Yes! Mini golf is so fun – I’m heading out tomorrow to go mini golfing with my husband ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Great list! My husband and I love to go see free music during the week at one of the museums in downtown Indy. It’s a great free date!

    1. That’s fantastic! We love going for free music, too. It’s such a fun activity, and it’s great to support local musicians as well – win-win ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. There are some wonderful ideas here! I WISH we could walk to the beach but that’s a few thousand mile trek. haha. I guess a beach can also include a pond or a lake, right? My husband and I recently found ourselves with some time between appointments, so we visited a park with a lake, spread out a blanket under some shade trees and took a short nap. It was delightful, refreshing and spur of the moment. We both loved it!

    1. Yes, the beach is definitely lake or pond, too ๐Ÿ™‚ And I LOVE your spur-of-the-moment idea; those are the best kind!

    1. I agree, GiGi. Spending time at home, having fun in the kitchen, and lounging around on the couch catching up on the DVR is the best. Trying new restaurants is also so fun – I bet it’s especially fun for you so you can brainstorm allergy-friendly alternatives for your yummy blog ๐Ÿ™‚
