50 At home date ideas.

Organising a date night with your spouse can be a bit of a nightmare once you have children, however even if you are on a time limit, due to either of you working, or trying to fit it in with your children’s schedule. 

And that is where you can find ideas with this list that I have made this list of 50 of the best ideas that I could find, and the brilliant thing about these date ideas, is that you could do them after the children are in bed and you can spend some quality time together.

50 At home date ideas:

  1. Make dinner together  ~ You could try a three course meal together, or have some fun and have a competition to see who can make the best of whatever you want to make.
  2. Have an indoor picnic ~ You could watch movies while you have your ‘picnic’.
