Saving money is not a thing of the past. You can still have a fun date with your significant other without breaking the bank. We’re sure some of the best times you’ve spent together were not out on expensive dates, right? Right! So, you can share more special moments with your special someone at home with these romantic date night ideas that won't cost you much.
Whether you two like to cook or not, find something you both want to try and cook it together. Put on some jazz music and grab a bottle of wine you’ve been dying to crack open and enjoy each other’s company. Make sure the kids are at grandma’s so you two can make the most of the night.
Grab a few things the country is known for. Rent a French or Italian movie and choose French or Italian cuisine for the night’s dinner and dessert (think fondue or gelato). This won’t cost much and it’ll be a fun theme night for love.
Blindfold each other and feed each other exotic foods. Test your palate by having each other guess what they taste. Keep it simple by making all the exotic foods finger food. It won’t create a mess and bite-sized food is always sexier.
You read it right. Instead of going to a day spa with your girlfriends, have a night spa with your sweetie. Get some massage oil and give each other a full body massage. Light candles, play soft music, and relax.
Who said picnics can’t be sophisticated? You can create the simplest yet sincerest and sweetest night for you and your honey just by laying a white tablecloth on the floor, putting candles down, serving aphrodisiacs, and cooking a nice dinner. Don’t forget aged wine. Call it five-star at home.
Get back to where you both started, before the kids, when you two had to be pulled apart with pliers. Write a poem together expressing what made you two fall head over heels for one another. You can even paint each other with an easel and canvas. Play music for each other. Whatever you do, make something you and the kids can cherish. The poem or portraits can be passed on to them. It will remind them of the love you two share.
All of these date-night-in ideas can be paired with the wine of your choice and dessert. Have fun with each other and enjoy this time together.
