Creating fun and thoughtful moments for the one you love doesn’t always have to be a costly event. In fact, some of the most memorable events are the ones that inadvertently sweep you and your sweet heart into the moment without spending a cent.
Going out to eat, watching a movie, and romantic vacations are wonderful but we don’t always have the expendable funds or time to do those things frequently. This doesn’t mean date night doesn’t happen, it just means we have to get a little bit more creative! So, we put on our red pointed Gnome thinking caps and channeled our inner Gnomes (after 300 years of marriage they have mastered budgeting and date night) for some ideas that allow for quality time on a slim to none budget, and when time is short and of the essence. Whether you have kids to tend to, a sleep schedule to maintain, books to hit, or are simply exhausted, we promise we have crafted a go to date night list for you.
Below are seven date night ideas, one for each day of the week if you are ambitious, that will enrich your relationship, give you and your sweetheart one on one time together, and give you moments to cherish and reflect on long after the day is done. Your little Gnome lovers are the perfect indicator that your honey is in for something special, so grab a Gnoment and create a moment!
You can start by Sending a Gnomifiction or let your Gnome deliver the message in person.
Which date night will you treat your honey to first?
- Have a Walk to Remember
Taking a walk together is more about the journey than the destination. Whether you will be circling around the block, walking to the farmers market, or walking the dog, taking a walk together is not only good for you but it also dedicates time to conversation and is a good excuse to hold hands. It can be a short walk, a long walk, or treadmill walk, the point is to make them all walks to remember.
- Dance Party for Two
After a long day the last thing that may cross your mind is having a dance party. However, this dance party has a VIP list of just the two of you. The music can be fast or slow, or even nonexistent all together. Remember how much it made your heart race to hold the one you love near? Well you can have a slice of that each night if you make the time to hold each other close. There is no arm length restriction at this dance party and there isn’t even a dress code.
- Star Gaze
Your wishes are twice as likely to come true when you both wish upon the stars together! There is nothing more magical or mystical then the stars and moon. They make you feel small and remind you that out of all the planets, places, and people in the world, you two found each other. As a bonus the darkness holds your secrets so what happens in the dark stays there.
- Read a Book Together in Bed
Together you two can choose your own adventure! Will it be a science fiction adventure, a fantasy fairytale, or maybe even a biography on a person of interest? It’s all part of the fun that you two can experience together. Open a bottle of wine, pop some popcorn, and take turns reading. After a glass or two of wine you might even really get into character!
- 5 Minute Foot Rub Exchange
This one is a win win and a no brainer. Who doesn’t want a foot massage, plus it gives you both something to look forward to at the end of a long day.
- A Shower for Two
Not that this needs much explanation, but a shower for two will cut your water bill in half. So in the long run it actually saves you money and doubles as a wonderful date night in. Light some candles turn on some music and turn your bathroom into a makeshift sauna for two.
- Netflix and Cuddles
When all else fails and you can’t possibly dream of moving an inch, you can’t go wrong with Netflix. The cuddling also won’t take much effort but you may have to rock paper scissors on who deals with the “are you still watching” dilemma. Netflix is always a cheap and fun date night affair that tends to end your evening on a happy note.
The moments we hold dearest are the ones that touch our hearts. It’s the conversations, shared smiles, butterflies, and laughs that we hold onto dearly. If you can find a way to work in as many of those moments into your day as you can, then you will be rich in ways money can’t buy. Still treat yourself to dinners, trips, and gifts, but make date night last far beyond the dollar count and extend past one day a week.
