Here is a list of free or nearly free ideas to make your dating a pure pleasure: 1.
Have a candle light picnic in an unusual location, like your rooftop, a park bench or over looking the ocean. Go on a photo date where you snap photos of each other all over the city. ." Then count the ways you enjoy loving each other. Write a song or a poem and perform it for the one you love.
So, I decided to come up with a list of date night ideas for us to choose from.
When my husband and I were first married, we were both working full-time and had no kids, so each week we would head out to dinner or a play or a concert or a movie . Plus, I don’t want to leave my 4 month old baby with just anyone! even if you don’t like these ideas, there are links to approximately 350 MORE date ideas at the bottom of this post. That will take care of date nights for the next 7 years! 🙂 And before we jump into the date ideas, I just wanted to share with you two things that have helped my marriage so much: This cute journal will change the way that you look at your spouse and your marriage.

(If you’ve got a baby monitor, you can pretty safely head for the yard or the garage, I figure.) Remember: You can get movies from the library for free, and the internet has tons of great resources for things like game ideas you can play, videos to teach you a new skill, even karaoke at home.
A couple of months ago, we decided to try at home date nights every Friday. When you don’t have a restaurant reservation or a movie showtime to make, it’s really easy to find excuses not to have date night.
Eat nachos and hot dogs and cheer for your favorite team. Use Google or You Tube to learn some proper techniques and get to rubbing! Have a “finger foods only” dinner and feed each other. Invest in an ice cream maker or a bread maker (you can actually get some pretty decent ones for really cheap at a local thrift store or consignment store) and invent your own concoctions. And if it’s too cold, spread a quilt out on the floor, make some sandwiches, and keep your picnic indoors. This is funniest if you can find some heart-wrenching ballads to belt out.

You can get all the info right here, along with a cute printable to make it happen. Watch a sports game together (or record one on the DVR and watch it together later). If it’s warm enough, try to go outside (even if it’s in your own backyard). Find songs with lyrics on You Tube and sing your heart out. You can pick up mugs at the Dollar Store and use a sharpie marker to decorate it.
