15 At Home Date Night Ideas
We are always looking for fresh new ways to switch up date night. For many reasons you may need to have date nights at home! Home Date Nights are a great way to save money, make things special if you have tiny children, or just have fun if you don’t feel like leaving home.
1. Get Take Out:
I know this seems pretty original. However, food from your favorite place can make your soul happy even if you are at home. So order from your favorite restaurant or a new place. Set up your table with real dishes and maybe even a candle and pretend you’re really out on the town. Once the kids are down, you’ll even forget you are having a date night at home.
2. Watch a movie
This may be a great time to watch a series or start with old classics. Do you know each other’s favorite childhood classics? Be intentional with your movie choice and switch up genres from your normal. You could even add several movie choices in a jar and choose one out at a time. Simply putting your phone away can make movie night and date night seem more intentional.
3. Have a virtual game night with other couples.
Because of technology there’s lots of ways to connect with other people. And a double date at home could still be possible! Whether with a gaming system, or an app find a game you can all play together.
4. Take your date to the back yard, or patio.
Just a small change in scenery can make all the difference. You could even have a little camp out right at home.
