That means getting really creative with our date night ideas. Over the years we have come up with some really great ideas for stay at home date nights. 

10 Frugal Stay at Home Date Night IdeasMy hope is that by sharing these ideas you will be come encouraged to put some of the ideas to use in your own life no matter how busy you are. It is time to put the kids to bed and spend some quality time with your significant other.

Picnic in the Backyard

Make up some finger foods and grab some favourite snacks and head into the backyard for picnic once you put the kids to bed.
Have a Video Game Night

Who said the video games are just for the kids? Pull out a game and play the game just for fun. We usually end up playing Mario Kart and I haven't actually won some of the races over the years.

Do a Puzzle Together

Put a puzzle across the table and start doing a puzzle together. We find puzzles for great prices at local thrift stores and just tuck them away until we want to do them.

Have a Fondue Night

You do not need a fondue to have a fondue night you can put the pan on your stove or the ingredients in your slow cooker and enjoy some time together talking as you are cooking your food.

Movie Time

Pop some popcorn and snuggle on the couch and turn on Netflix. There are so many shows to choose from the list is endlist.


Line up some karaoke videos on YouTube and start singing. There are a lot of songs on YouTube, I know you will find some of your favourites.

Sit Outside

Grab a glass of Lemonade and head out to your front porch or into your backyard to sit and talk. A great time to reconnect and actually have uninterrupted conversation.

Give a Massage

After a hard day of working why not exchange foot massages to relax. If touching feet is not your things you can always give a back rub.

Take Dance Lessons

You are not seeing things. You can head over to YouTube and search up dance lessons and learn how to tango or salsa together right in your own home and at no cost.

Play a Card Game

The internet is a HUGE resource for different card game you can play with two people. This year we learned how to play GOLF. Yes it is a game and it can be played with two people. Just search some card games out to try.
