6 Date Night Ideas For Parents

Date Night Ideas

Date night ideas for parents is a few ideas to help you get out with your spouse. Being a parent is tough as you don’t want to pay a babysitter and yet want more time out. If you are paying a babysitter you can’t afford a big slap-up dinner so here are 6 ideas for frugal date nights!

If you’re looking for entertainment tickets, Goldstar always has the best deals so check there first!

1) Pizza and a movie.

Make pizzas together using this great pizza recipe and then grab a rental from Redbox for a $1.20!

2) Dinner date.

Go out to dinner using a gift certificate from restaurant.com. We LOVE using these guys as you can get $25 Restaurant Gift Certificates for just $10!

3) Memory Lane.

Pull out some old pictures from a vacation and make a meal based on where you went. After dinner browse through the piccies and relive the vacation.

4) Picnic.

Turn on the fireplace, light some candles and pull out a blanket. Grab some tasty picnic food and have an indoors picnic.

5) Coffee and chat.

I have a friend who’s hubby (boyfriend at the time) took her out for coffee and had pre-written some questions that they discussed. It sounds a little cheesy but when you’ve been married for a while it can be fun to ask crazy questions. Here’s my list of 20 questions you can use!!

6) Fondue.

Hubs and I love fonduing together, especially the cheese one. You can grab a block of it already made from Meijer, Dominicks, Jewel or Trader Joe’s. We love dipping bread, tomatoes and potatoes in the pot.

May I just say that I’m a HUGE advocate for date nights. Even with kids, your marriage needs a little TLC that only time alone can do!

Need a great entertainment deal? Goldstar has HALF off tickets to Legoland Discovery Center, White Sox games, Medieval Times, and AMC Movie Tickets plus a whole bunch of other great Chicago activities!
