10 At Home Date Night Ideas For Parents


For Moms|Lifestyle

Put the kids to bed and enjoy some romantic time to yourselves with these 10 date night ideas sure to help you relax and reconnect.

Eat Your Favourite Grown-Up Food

You don’t always get to eat your favourite food when thinking about meals for the entire family, so take a night to cook or order in and indulge in your and your partner’s favourite food while the kids sleep.


Like they say, communication is key! Get comfortable and take some time to just talk with your other half about what’s going on in your life and mind, sure to bring you closer and help you feel even more loved up!

Board Game

In for a bit of friendly competition? Challenge your partner to an evening playing your favourite board game! Sure to keep the boredom away, you’re both sure to enjoy your date night together.

Cook Together

No worrying about a restaurant reservation and trying to talk over the loud restaurant noise when you can instead cook a meal you both love together in the comfort of your own home. Turn on some music – and if the kids are up, put on a movie for them to watch while you and your partner cook up a meal together.


After cooking a meal together (or if you’re not in the mood to cook, order takeout!) set up a picnic in your backyard or indoors. Light some candles, put on some music, dress up or wear your comfy clothes and enjoy a romantic picnic together.

Get creative! Get yourself a canvas (or just some paper), paint brushes and paint, and get artsy. Have some fun and draw each other!


If it’s been a while since you’ve put together a puzzle, then why not plan a date night where you and your other half do a puzzle? Plus puzzles are known to have cognitive benefits so you get to work on your brain power too!

Have A Cook Off

This is a fun one! You both get to choose a dish and cook it! Have a time limit and then enjoy eating the finished dishes together.

Look Through Old Photos

When was the last time you took a stroll down memory lane? It’s been a while for us!

So grab the old albums or hop on to your online photo accounts and go through some old photos. You can even go back further and share stories from your childhood. This is a fantastic way to get know your partner a little better!

Netflix & Dinner

The simplest one (but also one we love!), pop a movie on Netflix, order in your favourite meal – and chill! Make it a movie marathon or binge watch a new show.
