Or at The Co-op, two pizzas and a tub of Ben & Jerry’s cost just £5 together. Set the scene with 20 tealights for £1.79 at The Range.

VOLUNTEER TOGETHER: Make a date of helping out. You can find plenty of opportunities at doit.life/volunteer. Help out in a soup kitchen or assist with gardening — and bond over the shared experience.
