5 Date Night In Ideas for When the Kids are Asleep
We get it - life gets busy, especially with kids in tow, but that doesn't mean you need to sacrifice prioritizing your relationship! Bring date night to you, with these super simple and fun date night ideas. The best part? All these ideas are for at home, so stow the screens and get ready for a romantic night - all in the comfort of your own home!
Have a Spa Night
No need to spend the extra moola on a couple's massage- make or buy some massage oil (or add a few drops of lavender essential oil into your favorite body lotion for a DIY) and take turns treating each other to massages. A bubble bath with some Epsom salt is another great way to relax together without paying the high price. 🛁
Support your local restaurants and order takeout for a late supper! Try spicing it up and ordering something you wouldn't normally or order from a few different restaurants and make it buffet style. Light a couple of candles and turn on some soft music to set the tone, and dig into some yummy food!

Check out this site for a few yummy ideas. Plus you might end up with leftovers the kids will happily eat the next day!
Have a Movie Marathon
Grab the popcorn and snuggle up to a movie that you'll both enjoy or even plan a special movie marathon. Rewatch the Harry Potter or Star Wars movie or take turns picking movies until you fall asleep. No need to go anywhere when you can enjoy each other's company and snack for free at home! 🍿
Have a Wine Tasting
No need to go to the vineyard, grab a few bottles of wine, and have a DIY wine tasting at home! 🍷 Create cards for and note the tastes in each wine and discuss which is your favorite. If beer or whiskey is more your thing, sample those instead! Grab some cheese or your favorite dessert to make date night that much more special!
