Date Night Ideas at Home
Is getting out of the house tricky with little ones? Watching your budget? Maybe you're just tired of going out to eat or the movies. You might've searched for date night ideas online like me and found often the ideas didn’t work in the winter or were unavailable in our area.
Then I came across at home date nights at the
Dating Divas, which involved making an every day activity like
dinner or a movie or tv show more interesting. These are my favorites that
I'm looking forward to trying. They're free to print, require little to no planning, and some just need treats as a reward. They even came
up an article with ideas specifically for beating
Scattergories: A fun game I enjoyed growing up with and now I can have fun with
inside jokes for example one reads: 'A word to describe my spouse's cooking.' I
can see us having fun with this.
Tasting: My husband and I love chocolate so I could see this being a
good winter or special occasion idea. Can't beat an activity that gives
you an excuse to try chocolate. I was thinking of tweaking the idea so
you're blind folded and have to rate and guess the chocolate type.
Tailgate Date: I like to interact with sports on tv and on the dating diva
site you can make predictions and do certain actions based on the results.
Won the toss? You get a kiss. Your team scored? Get a back rub,
etc. Sounds like fun to me.
Market Sweep: I loved this show as a kid. Now I like the idea of
shopping for my spouse and it's a race. Takes grocery shopping to a whole
'nother level. You could also cook in bulk with your spouse on this date.
Here are some more links of ideas.
Of course these don't have to just be date night ideas. You can make them work for family time, fun outing with a friend etc.
What do you do for date nights? Any suggestions?
