100 Free or Frugal Winter Date Nights


Keeping your relationship healthy is so important for your family, and these 100 free or frugal winter date nights are a great way to get started.  A date night (or day) doesn’t have to cost a ton of money or be anything fancy.  So much of dating isn’t about the activity but the time spent learning more about the person.  Even if you’ve been married for 20 years, a few hours spent reconnecting can do wonders for your relationship.


100 Free Or Frugal Winter Date Nights


  1. Go stargazing.  If you can drive to an open field with nothing in the way of the sky it is best.  Grab blankets or sleeping bags and a smart phone app to help you recognize constellations.
  2. Snow ball fights.
  3. Visit a museum or gallery.  Check out your local area and find ones that offer free or cheap entrance.  Watch for great exhibits, or simply check out local talent.
  4. Go dancing.  Local clubs for country line dancing, swing dancing, ballroom dancing or simply a slow dance in your living room to “your song”.
  5. Watch local music.  Ask around town to find out where the best local bands play.  Many won’t have a cover charge, and all you’ll be out is gas and maybe the cost of a drink or two.
  6. Watch a movie at home. Rent or stream a new release movie, or dig up your favorite classics for a romantic movie night at home.
  7. Make a gourmet meal.  Cooking together is a great way to connect and have fun.  Look up some gourmet but inexpensive recipes and create them at home.
  8. Feed the homeless.  Every community has a shelter, soup kitchen or other place that you can volunteer and help those in need.
  9. Go hunting.  Winter is the time to enjoy hunting sports, and for some couples this is a great way to connect.
  10. Go fishing.  Whether it is at a pond, lake or deep sea fishing this can be tons of inexpensive fun.
  11. Take a hike.  If there isn’t snow on the ground in your area, load up the backpacks and head out for a local hiking trail.
  12. Go skiing.  If you live near slopes, head out for a fun time skiing.
  13. Go ice skating.
  14. Make a bucket list.  This can be individual bucket lists, a list for you as a couple or even as a family.
  15. Play board games.
  16. Play video games.
  17. Do a DIY project together. Turn an old desk into a funky night stand, or old windows into a command center.
  18. Play 20 questions.  Write down a list of questions you always wanted answered.
  19. Do a scavenger hunt.  Create a fun scavenger hunt for each other around your house, the local neighborhood or a mall.
  20. Go to a poetry reading.
  21. See a local play. Check out local school events as well as your local theater.
  22. Window shop.  Head to the mall, flea markets, art galleries or craft stores and browse letting each other know your favorite items.
  23. Go to a matinée movie.  Cheaper tickets and fewer people make this a fun frugal winter date idea.
  24. Go for a bike ride.
  25. Give each other a massage.  Coconut oil is an excellent inexpensive massage oil and perfect since it is likely already in your pantry. No fancy technique is needed.  Just gently massage back, shoulders, neck, legs and feet.
  26. Watch old home movies.  This will be more for couples who have been together for a few years and remember camcorders from back in the day.
