Whether you're in a new relationship or happily married, it's always nice to treat the person you love with a fun day or night out. Restaurant meals and movies can add up, but there are still some great ways to have a romantic date on a budget:
Make a homemade meal. This may seem like an obvious one but often people are so busy these days that meals become more of an afterthought than anything else. Why not make an actual appointment to set the table for a real meal right at your own dinner table? Use some nice tablecloths or place settings and make your significant other's favourite recipe. It'll definitely be a success!
Have a picnic. On a nice summer or fall day, grab a blanket or sheet and head to a park with a packed lunch and some books. There's nothing nicer than an afternoon without the distractions of TV and the internet. You can also bring a deck of cards or other outdoor games to pass the time.
Go for a walk or bike ride. It can be fun to break a sweat with your significant other, and even if working out isn't your favorite thing to do, a nice leisurely walk is a great time for conversation and just enjoying a nice evening outdoors.
Take a drive. You don't have to plan a weekend away to explore a new area. There are probably some great spots just a short drive away. Plus, spending time in the car with some good music on and the windows down can be a great way to spend an afternoon or evening.
