Ideas For Date Nights At Home

Date nights are important for staying connected to your spouse! Your dates together don't need to be expensive or filled with going out. Valentine's day is right around the corner and there is no need to go out. Plan your next date night in at your home! We put together 7 creative ideas for your next date night in together. 

Have a game night. Get your favorite board game and get competitive. Or pull out a deck of cards and teach eachother your go-to card game. Games are always full laughs and can make your night staying in really fun.

Some easy two-player games are:

  • Battleship
  • Six Card Golf
  • Bears vs. Babies
  • Banagrams
  • Exploding Kittens
  • Rummikub

Have a cook off. Pick a few courses to cook, including desert and have a cook off. See who can make it better. Choose some recipes for appetizers, main meal, and desert and set a timer for how long you will each have to make each plate. The best part will be feasting all the all the delicious food you both made for each other. 

Have a spa session. Pull out your slippers and fluffy robes. Light all the candles and make your bubble bath extra bubbly. Get some face masks and massage lotion and turn on your favorite relaxing music. Just spend the night relaxing by creating your own spa night together. 

Have a movie series marathon. Cuddle up cause your in for the long haul. Pick out your favorite movie series and start  by watching them each movie chronological order. Don't forget your favorite popcorn and candy to make it feel  movie-theater like.

Have a craft night. Gather all your art supplies and sit down together and create something. Put together a collage or scrapbook of your life. Or just simply color together and hang them on the fridge like the proud adults that you are. 

Have a tent/camp night. Build a fort complete with pillows and blankets. Make s'mores in the microwave or toast some marshmallows them with a candle. Write down your goals for the rest of the year or make a bucket list together under the fort. Bring your favorite books and read to each other. 

Have some chemistry. No really, literally do a science experiment. Don't you remember growing up how exciting it was when you got to do a fun experiment. Get a little nerdy and look up some fun easy to do science experiments to do together.
