After your first baby is born, date nights can become a thing of the past, but don’t let them! Here are 5 date night ideas that don’t cost a thing and will get you back to those important days of dating your significant other! Showing your kids a healthy, loving relationship between the two of you is so important. So grab a sitter and start planning those weekly date nights (YES, I mean once a week)!
First step is getting yourselves ready for your big night out on the town! I have always been an avid T.J.Maxx shopper and the fact that you can scoop up outfits for under $40 makes it even more enticing! Best news yet? YOU CAN SHOP ONLINE. When I had first found this out my jaw hit the floor. I had NO idea I could have been shopping online at tjmaxx.com for over three years now! The fact that you can shop for brand-name fashions at such an affordable price ONLINE is amazing. Don’t like it? Easily return it to your nearby store for a refund! I love that T.J.Maxx is just like one big treasure hunt for the perfect item. Now, the date night ideas don’t cost a thing which means that maybe that amazing significant other of yours will let you go on a little shopping spree for a new outfit? It’s worth a shot! 🙂 Our outfits in this photos are both from T.J.Maxx and everything was under $150. My favorite products to shop for? The gorgeous dresses, shoes and tops!
5 Date Night Ideas That Don’t Cost a Thing
1.) Backyard Camp Out / Star Gazing: When is the last time you did this?! Bring that monitor outside and set up camp for the evening! Layer some blankets and pillows, start a fire, roast some marshmallows, and gaze up at the stars. Spark the kind of conversations that only happen when you are one on one with nature and zero technology 😉
2.) Volunteer: Giving to others can bring you two closer together and also make you both feel like a million bucks. Offer to hand out meals at your nearest soup kitchen or offer to help clean up a yard/plant flowers in a new development for a family in need!
3.) Picnic Dinner & Park Walk: Pack up a dinner from home with a bottle of wine and head to your favorite park. Bring your blanket and a pillow or two and have dinner! Bring along your favorite game too! Whether it’s Battleship or Monopoly, it will remind you of your childhood 🙂
4.) Game Night with Friends: Your date night can also be a night with your best buds! The ones that you both laugh all night with. Plan a night where you get together and play all your favorite games!
5.) Road Trip: Pack up that car for a few hours and head to your favorite spot! Turn on your favorite tunes and just enjoy each others company. It doesn’t need to be a far road trip either. An hour trip to your favorite vineyard or your favorite hiking spot! Whatever it is, just pack those snacks and hit the road!
What are some date night ideas that you have done in the past that don’t cost a thing?!
