Let's face it. The economy may be getting better, but it still isn't what we'd like it to be.

Connecting with your partner should always be a top priority. Date nights are a great way to take time to recharge your relationship. But you don't have to spend a lot of money to make the most of your one-on-one time. Here are five inexpensive date night ideas for you and your honey. 10 Beauty Essentials For Date Night (And Beyond)

1. Dinner and a movie at home. Sure, going to a fancy restaurant is nice, but you can create the same magic at home. Stop by a Blockbuster or Red Box kiosk and grab a movie. Or, you can even watch a recorded TV show together. Then, pull out the good china, table linens and candles, get in the kitchen and cook!

Doing things for your partner, especially when he isn't expecting it, will always be greatly appreciated. (Of course, be sure to clean the kitchen afterward.)

2. Picnic and a sunset. What could be more romantic than watching the sunset with your loved one? Just pack a picnic basket with some nibbles; maybe a little cheese, crackers and a nice bottle of wine. Then take a drive to the beach, walk along the shore, take a seat and let nature provide a beautiful backdrop for your time together. Top 10 Tips For Building Loving Relationships

3. Shopping together. Men don't always like to shop, but this is an easy way to get them involved and spend time together. One suggestion is to hit up a local farmer's or flea market. You can walk around together, talk and pick up items to make dinner later that evening, which will only further your interaction.

4. Tour a local winery, park or museum. This is a great way to share a common interest with your partner. Most areas have a historic park or museum that you two can frequent together. Another option — if you both like wine, see if there is a winery near you. Many offer tours and tastings for a small fee. 

5. Be a kid again. Take your partner roller skating or bowling, something he loved doing as a child. Not only is it inexpensive, it's sure to spark a smile, some laughter and maybe even some friendly competition.
