We like to go bowling!  We don’t do it that often, but everytime we go we always leave saying- we should do this more often!!  However, it is not that original!!

bowling w/ pizza & beer? i guess that probably adds up after a while. See if you can borrow snowshoes from someone who owns them? Often hiking trails get pretty packed down in the winter, so if you bundle up and wear good shoes you can just walk on them.

sometimes stores, like health food or cooking supply stores, have tasting nights. I know that there is a “salsa tasting” night near here coming up. You could go out, do the tasting & pick one of the products to come home and create a meal with?

Making a yummy Bailey’s/Hot-chocolate thermos and going ice skating.  My FH and I did it on the Rideau Canal here which is a blast but an our door rink or even a free skate at an indoor one is a blast!

There are a couple of places in the area that do free or cheap wine tasting which is pretty fun. Otherwise we’ll visit a store that has a build your own six pack section and pick out some new beer that we’ve never tried before and have another couple over and test something new. 

We’re also big on coupons, like the Entertainment books, to use when we go out for dinner. The book costs about $25 and it always pays for itself…quickly! Lots of buy one get one free coupons!

Some craft store or stores like William Sonoma have cooking classes or demonstrations that my Fiance and I are planning to check out. (we haven’t gone yet so I don’t know whats its like) Going to the gym together can be fun especially if they have an inside basketball court. When we do cheap dates it usually entails going to the park or on a walk πŸ™‚

I love hearing about cheap & fun date nights to do! (esp when its cold and outside dates are harder to come by.)

The best ideas I have came across, esp to make the ole dinner and movie routine not seem so typical, is to have themes. For example, have “Italian date night” – cook Italian food, have an at home wine & cheese tasting, and top it off with an Italian mob movie.

You can still go outside, go on a winter walk. Bundle up & take a thermos of soup and hot choclate.

I set up an at home spa day for my husband and I for V-day & he LOVED it!! I had the candles, nature music, and found several at home recipies for a body scrub, facial, and hand treatment. I also did a little research on how to give a good back massage πŸ™‚

Other ideas to get out of the house on the cheap: check out community theaters or childrens theaters (these tixs are usually cheap and can often be very entertaining!) Check out to see if your town has indoor activities like indoor golf or tennis.

Pool/billiards is usually pretty cheap. Museums (Science, MFA, Children’s), the aquarium, etc. in Boston are awesome. Ummm… local bands can be cheap. Walking around Newbury Street is fun (can pop in and out of all the shops without buying stuff to warm up). Tealuxe has a great assortment of warm tasty teas/drinks. I’ll try to think of other things, as I grew up around Boston. πŸ™‚

I don’t know if you guys like to cook, but by Fiance and I like to have cook offs. You can either each pick a night and make a really impressive meal on that one night, or sometimes its fun to just take a few ingredients out of your fridge and then you both use them to make a meal for your Fiance…like Chopped.
