Bring out everyone’s competitive side by creating a backyard game night for two. Set up a variety of games such as Badminton, Putt Putt, Tic-Tac-Toe, Hide and Seek, to name a few. These games will surely bring out the kid in both of you.
Then spice things up a bit by having the loser serve the winner their favorite beverage in their dress of choice. That will surely bring out the adult in both of you!
You can’t get down in movies at the theater the way can with a movie at home. Pop some popcorn and set up an outdoor theater. Move your television outside or set-up a screen and a projector to achieve the full drive-in movie effect. Pop in a good movie, cuddle up close and enjoy – whether it’s the movie, or each other, just enjoy.
Have your own private concert in your backyard. Create a romantic atmosphere by hanging a few lanterns and lighting several candles; then crank up Pandora or your favorite playlist and dance the night away.
Prepare a romantic dinner and enjoy it under the stars. Continue the night by making s’mores or roasting marshmallows over a small campfire. Then end the night…well, where-ever you choose.
Detox and de-stress from your week. Hire a private masseuse, esthetician, or manicurist and treat yourselves to his and her outdoor spa treatments. After the professional leaves, relax with some soft music, wine, and each other.
As you can see there are a number of creative options outside of dinner and a movie for date night. Don’t get stuck in a date night rut, allow your creative juices to flow. Create date night experiences which will be enjoyable and memorable for the two of you.
