Fancy some good food and a cute date night but trying to save for summer? Here are some affordable but yummy options for you…

Not every date night has to be expensive or well thought out, sometimes just spending quality time with your boo and some comfort food is exactly what you need!

Money can be tight, especially at the moment. With summer creeping up it’s a wise idea to prioritise saving now. But, winter can be a little bleak and sometimes an affordable date hits the spot.

Here are some ideas!


1. Movie Night In & Order Pizza

Who doesn’t love to cosy up on the couch to a good movie with some pizza?

The ideal date night in, this is a great way of spending time with your partner away from the pressures brought by the outside world.

Don’t fancy dressing up or getting out in the cold? No problem, put your cosies on and cuddle up.

Pizza and movies are a winning combo, but can sometimes be 'spenny! We got you though…

Plus, if you wanted to make this a regular thing you could take it in turns with one of you picking the movie and the other picking the pizza toppings!
