9 Romantic and Inexpensive Date Night Ideas

Children are so amazing and become the loves of your life, but can also help you and your husband forget about the reasons you got together in the first place. Bringing romance into your relationship will not only create a good atmosphere in your home, but can encourage a positive and healthy environment for the kids.

Here are some romantic and inexpensive date night ideas that you and your partner can enjoy:


1. Have a Picnic

Nothing says romance like quality time on your own. Having a nice picnic with perhaps some wine, your favorite sandwich or whatever you like to eat, is always a great way to spend a nice afternoon with your partner.

2. Go on a Hike

Hiking is a great activity to getting nature involved. Being in the midst of nature and remembering to appreciate the little things will help you reminisce on the small things about your relationship too.

3. Candlelight dinner

Candlelight dinners are a given. It’s intimate and will help you and your partner focus more on each other.

4. Soft Light Movie

Cuddle up in a nice embrace with a soft lit (or maybe no light at all) movie and just let date night take you to whatever level comes next.

5. Go to a Drive-In

You might have to really search for this one, but if you haven’t done this (or never have), it’s a great experience that you and your partner can always remember. You can pretend you’re in the 50’s and have as much fun as you can with it!

6. Cook a 4 Course Meal Together

Exploring different flavors with cooking is a great way to spend your quality time together. You can talk and really get involved into making something delicious, while having fun!

7. Go Out for an After Dinner Drink or Dessert

Pick a nice restaurant and just hang out for some dessert. Talk and catch up on the things you really want or need to talk about.

8. Play a Board Game

Board games are a great way to remind one another just how much fun you can both have.

9. Draw a Candlelight Bath

Get even closer with a nice bath and candlelight. It’s your opportunity to be completely there for one another!
