Getting out for date night after having kids can seem like a challenge. You’re tired, too busy or feel like you should be spending money on other things.
If you don’t have family nearby date night can feel like a splurge. With the babysitter, dinner and entertainment it can add up quickly costing $100’s of dollars for a few hours out.
If you’re short on time or money date night doesn’t have to go by the wayside. Here are 33 date night ideas that can be done inexpensively, at home, with or without a babysitter.
1. Movie night
Avoid the lines, stay home and watch an Amazon Prime or Netflix movie after the kids go to bed. Create an atmosphere. Light candles, make popcorn and get romantic with a warm blanket to snuggle under.
2. Go for a bike ride
Relax and reinvigorate yourselves with a bit of fresh air and nature. Ride local, take your bikes to the waterfront or find a bike path. If you don’t have bikes, rent or borrow them from friends.
3. Workout or do a yoga class together
If your gym has childcare take advantage of it. Use it as a way to get in shape an spend quality time with your partner. Those that play together stay together!
