We LOVE date night which comes every Friday for us! We both have off work that day and take full advantage of that. I wanted to share some our favorite date night ideas. It was hard to narrow it down, but here are my top 5.
1. Adventure somewhere close by:
If you love adventure, then this is a great date idea! We normally have Friday off together, so we can plan a short day trip to somewhere near by. If you live outside of a bigger city area, then consider going into the city. There are always fun things to do together in big cities. Some of our favorite places around the D.C. area have been the free D.C. Zoo, historic Frederick, MD, and the Baltimore Aquarium There are lots of different places for us to visit in the D.C. area. It’s definitely worth the 2 hour trip to go on an adventure somewhere.
2. Candlelight Dinner Date
This one is great if you want a night in and don’t want to spend money on dinner out. We usually whip up something nice for dinner, get dressed up, light a couple of candles, and turn on romantic dinner music. Our first Valentine’s Day was spent doing this. It’s a nice way to connect with each other in a romantic setting. Just make sure to put the phones in another room and don’t turn the TV on either.
3. Game Night With Snacks
This date night is perfect for those who have that competitive side or enjoy some nerdy fun with one another. My husband and I love game night with some snacks. So grab your chocolate chip cookie dough, popcorn, or your favorite snack for this one. My favorite chocolate chip cookie dough for this date night is. I recommend grabbing a bag of Skinny Pop Popcorn for this date too. Some of our favorite board games for two players include Munchkin, 7 Wonders Duel, Forbidden Island, and Ticket to Ride. We always have fun playing games together. We hope you enjoy these games as much as we do.
4. Classic Movie and Dinner Date
If we aren’t up for cooking a meal that night, then this is our go to date night. We pick one of our favorite restaurants to go to and a new movie we would like to see. One of the most recent movies we enjoyed was the Greatest Showman and Han Solo. These are definitely two of my most recent favorite movies.
5. Overnight Weekend Getaway for two
We went to Frederick, MD recently and stayed in a hotel there with a pool and hot tub. One of our favorite restaurants, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse is there so we made sure to visit and then enjoyed time at the hotel. It’s refreshing and great to getaway for a weekend with each other.
Dating your spouse or significant other is very important. When we have conversations and spend time with our spouse, we grow closer as a couple. Hope you all enjoy these date ideas as much as we do! Please feel free to leave your favorite date suggestions in the comments.
