As a mom of young kids, I know how hard it is to get date nights or alone time with your partner. But, I also know how important it is to feed your relationship.
Sometimes (more often than I’d like to admit) I get lost in my role as mom and I forget that I have another person who needs me too. But baby sitters and night outs can get expensive, and sometimes life just doesn’t cooperate…you know, bottle refusers, fevers, or whatever else might come up. Something we have done is do date night at home, even though you may not be getting out, you can still get some fun time in with your partner at home.
Date Night In Box…I’ve recently discovered these and they are so much fun!! Date Night In is a subscription service. Each month they send you a unique, themed date box filled with a fun and spontaneous Date night activity. . They have super fun themes like “To the Moon and Back”, “Truth or Dare” and “Karaoke” of other fun themes, and you can order just one box or schedule them to come to you each month. Check out my review of last month’s box here
Movie Night…..Rent a movie you’ve been wanting to see and have a popcorn bar! Redbox is always full of the newest flicks or you can use a streaming service like Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon. We like to get our favorite microwave popcorn and our favorite candies (I like reeses peices and my hubs love mike n ikes) and we snuggle up and watch our flick and enjoy our treats. I like it even better than the theater because I can wear my jammies!
Cook Dinner….If you don’t mind eating dinner late, after the kids are asleep you can cook a yummy meal with your man. We like picking ingredients that our preschooler isn’t fond of or something we have never tried before. We sometimes order a box like SunBasket, which makes it super easy. The other things i like about using a service like that is I don’t have to find a recipe or make an extra grocery trip, its all done for me.
Spa Night……I’ll admit this is probably more of an activity I enjoy, but my husband indulgdes me every once in a while. You can do face masks light some candles, turn on soft music and take turns giving each other massages…it may even turn into something more fun, if you know what I mean. Its fun to pamper each other, and learn what your partner enjoys.
What do you like to do for a fun date night in? Tell me in the comments below, I’m always looking for new ideas!
