Have you ever wondered how your friends and their significant others are able to keep the fire burning over the years? Whether they’re married or still happily dating, the key for many couples is setting aside time for regular date nights.
Even if you have a standing date night with your partner, it doesn’t always mean you’ll be able to pull off the date you were looking forward to. When your budget is tight, the babysitter cancels at the last minute or you have to work late unexpectedly, it can be tough to even leave home, let alone go out on a full-fledged date.
Date Night Ideas That Are Easy to Pull Off
Just because you can’t get out of the house for a date night, you don’t have to cancel your plans to spend the evening with your significant other. You can simply adjust your plans and put together a date night that’s easy to pull off at home.
Here are some date night ideas that are easy to execute even if your plans change at the last minute, and you’re low on funds:
Dinner and a Movie
Who says you have to go out to dinner and a movie? These days, with the many flicks you can watch right on your TV, you don’t even have to go out — unless, of course, it’s a movie that requires a big-screen viewing!
In all other cases, you can cook a delicious meal right in your own kitchen, put on comfy clothes and snuggle up on the couch together. Another benefit? You can just hit “pause” when you inevitably need to use the restroom.
Camp out Indoors
If you like the outdoors, you’ll probably agree that camping is a great way to spend a romantic night or weekend with your significant other. You don’t have to wait for your next excursion into the woods to camp with your partner, however. While your tent may not fit inside, a lot of your other camping gear will.
Set up your camping chairs and bring out the blankets and sleeping bags. Turn the lights out and use flashlights to see what’s around you. To make the experience even more authentic, make tin foil dishes in your oven when it’s mealtime.
Set up a DIY Photo Session
Although you may be used to regularly taking selfies, some time may have passed since you and your partner actually appeared in the same picture.
Set up a tripod for your camera or use a selfie stick with your smartphone and take pictures of you and your significant other in various rooms throughout your home. For even more fun, consider making some of the photos “naughty” while keeping the others “nice.”
