Dates can be hard to fit into a busy schedule before a baby is thrown into the mix. With a baby it becomes a whole different game of juggling. We try to have at least one date a month out of the house alone, but the other weeks we really try to have at home dates. I know so many of you guys can relate, so I am sharing 9 at home date ideas (when you have a new baby) or even if you’re just busy!
9 At Home Date Ideas
Cook Together: To me this is the most obvious. Put on some music, make a new meal, or an old favorite. You could use a service like Hello Fresh or Blue Apron to really make it fun!
Have A Movie Night: You could each pick a movie and have a double feature at home! So fun. Plus you may really like the movie your significant other picks!
Play A Game: My personal favorite. I am a really competitive person and I love games. Even a fun card game like Uno is a good time. Pour a glass of wine or make a fun drink!
Do A Puzzle: I tend to get frustrated with puzzles, but sometimes they can be pretty fun!
Binge A Show: One of my favorite past times. Find a new show on Netflix or Hulu and binge away snuggling with your sweetie!
Build a Palette Or Fort: A good start to the movie or binge night. Make a palette on the floor or a fort like when you were a kid!
Work On A Project Together: We love a good house project whether it’s decorating for a holiday or fixing and organizing. Sometimes even things like this can be made into fun times together. Or do a fun DIY refinishing a piece of furniture.
Bake A Treat: This time of year who doesn’t love baked goods? Sugar cookies anyone?
Read Together: Articles on marriage and relationships or just a really interesting book!
There are LOTS of great things you can do at home as a couple without having to pay a babysitter, put on makeup, or you know where things other than PJs!
