VINA DATES ON A BUDGET

How many times have you and your vinas decided that there was nothing to do, simply because you couldn’t think of anything within your budget? Well, think again ladies. Here’s a list of 20 things you can do with your vinas on a budget, organized by cost.

FREE-ish

(Depending on where you live, you may need to consider bus or gas costs, which will bump up the cost!)

OPEN MIC NIGHT

Skip the alcohol (which we all know can be pricey), and just enjoy the moment!

SUNDAY MARKET

Go for some great photos and to meet your local makers, (if you can resist buying everything).

SWEAT IT OUT

Gym memberships usually have an option to let you bring a friend for free. Or go for a hike!

DISCOVER SOME MAGIC

Visit your local crystal/gemstone shop for some free positive vibes.

GAZE AT THE STARS

Grab your vinas and a box of wine, and lay out underneath the stars.

HAVE A PHOTO SHOOT

Your vinas can all take turns hyping each other up as you each pose for the camera.

MAKE A TIME CAPSULE

This one’s pretty self-explanatory!

OLD IS NEW AGAIN

Be a tourist in your own city. See everything with a fresh, curious perspective!

“CHEAP” DATES: $5 – $10

GO ON AN ICE CREAM DATE

So simple, but so rewarding.

OR, GO ON A COFFEE DATE

Like ice cream, but with coffee.

HOST A POTLUCK PARTY

Each vina can bring a homemade dish.

HAVE AN OLD-FASHIONED SLEEPOVER

Complete with cheesy Drew Barrymore movies, makeovers and popcorn. Also a great time to bring other those homemade dishes and have a potluck.

EXPLORE A CORN MAZE

If your city has one of these (and it’s open), you’re in luck. Corn mazes are packed with fun for a low entry cost.

ENGAGE IN A BAKE-OFF

Having a (friendly) baking competition between you and your Vina’s.

“MODERATELY-PRICED” DATES: $10 – $20 

RIDE BIKES

It’ll only be pricey if you have to rent a bike. My city has bike rentals for $15 for 3 hrs.

BEACH DAY

This is one can be pricey, but can be kept low if your vinas all pitch in.

GO BOWLING

Simple, cheap, and amazing cafeteria food to indulge in? It’s the perfect guilty pleasure vina date night.

DRIVE – IN

If it’s open in your city, make it a goal to drive up there with your vinas for some old-fashioned fun.

The prices may be cheap, but the quality of memories made will be anything but.

THE BEST VINA DATES FOR BLOGGERS

What’s better than bloggin’ on your own? Blogging with your vinas! If you got lucky enough to meet some other blogging machines on the app, try these vina dates next time you hang out!

BRUNCH

Not only do brunch spots provide for some great content (write about that new food you had, or take a flat lay of your spread), but it makes for a great environment to get to know your friend in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Also–mimosas! giphy (4).gif

DOWNTOWN

The sights, the sounds, the people. Even if you don’t live in a particularly large town, exploring new places of your city is a fun way to get outside and be entertained. Picture the candids!

COFFEE SHOPS

I don’t care what anyone says, shots of coffee are always acceptable and welcomed. Try somewhere new and a little eccentric with your vina.giphy (5).gif

ART MUSEUMS

Best part of blogging with your vina? She knows how to get the shot. Not only do the two of you get to spend a few hours with some amazing artwork, but you leave with plenty post-worthy pics for the blog, later.
