We live in a micro town, only 500 people, and there aren’t any of the usual “date night” options. After the kids are asleep we’ll break out some fun snacks and watch a movie together, or we’ll invite friends over for a double date board game night. In the summer we’ll bring the monitor to the back yard and sit by a campfire together and chat.
We’ve also done the campfire after kids’ bedtime a couple times, but usually find ourselves too tired to start one at that time of day. I like getting massages, but my husband isn’t great at giving them hahaha. So we found some YouTube videos on how to give a massage and have done that a couple times, taking turns getting a massage. We both improved our massage skills. In quarantine, we also started doing yoga classes together after the kids go to bed, which we had never done before. We did virtual game night with friends. We are fortunate enough to have a neighbor who lets us use their pool, so one Friday night when they were out we ordered a pizza and ate it poolside with the kids and then swam– family date night!
Late but have you found any inexpensive date night ideas that you’re enjoying? We are also fans of a chiminea fire with snacks in tow. A fancy picnic outside? Lay the blanket down, grab the binoculars, star gaze, and catch up.
