Babysitter cancel? Summer heat have you not wanting to leave the air-conditioned house? On a budget? You can still enjoy a fun evening with your spouse with these 5 at-home date night ideas.
Play board or video games
Games aren’t just for the kids! Enjoy a little friendly competition and bust out some games for an at-home date night. Whether it’s Mario Kart or Battleship, playing games is a great way to have some light-hearted fun together!
Order pizza and have a movie night
A classic date: dinner and a movie. Order some pizza, grab a couple blankets, and watch a movie on the couch while you eat. If this is one of your go-to date ideas, mix it up and take turns on who gets to pick the movie each time.
Work on a puzzle together
When the pandemic hit, it seemed like puzzles made a comeback. This can be a fun and challenging thing to do together. Make it classy and have some wine and a homemade charcuterie board to munch on while you work on it.
Make ice cream sundaes
There’s nothing better than some ice cream on a hot summer day! Gather some of your favorite toppings and make some sundaes together (and no, you don’t have to share with your kids!).
Plan your next vacation
Whether it’s a family trip or a getaway for just the two of you, why not dedicate a date night to planning your next vacation? Grab your phones or computer and spend time researching a destination together, looking at the best hotels, and picking out fun things to do when you go.
