Meal at home doesn’t appeal but meal out too much of a big spend? Splurge on a smaller scale with a café trip instead.
Many of our museums and galleries are free or very affordable. Why not be a tourist in your own area and visit a local one?
Go for a run together – and then stop off for a well-deserved drink & snack
Need time to connect? Some of the best conversations take place when you can’t eye ball each other. Decorating ceramics might not be your forte but may give you the opportunity to slow down, have a laugh and great conversation
Going for a walk is one of life’s simplest pleasures. Getting out into nature is an obvious suggestion but walking in residential streets or to local landmarks can also be fulfilling especially when it prompts personal memories or conversations about changes in your area

Ever felt that the journey there and back can be the best part of a date? Being on the move can prompt the best conversations. So plan a trip where the getting there is as, if not more, enjoyable as the destination.
