We all know how tired you are after work. You don’t want to be bothered, you are literally making a beeline from your car, to the kitchen, and then to bed. Sometimes we wait all week for the weekend to come so that we can enjoy the time we spend with the ones we love, but who says we can’t get some time in during the week, even after a long work day? We’ve found 5 super easy, super cheap, & super fun date night ideas that you can do with your Bae after a hard days work, and here’s the best part – you can wear sweatpants or leggings for every one of them.
Order takeout & Eat by Candlelight
We told you, you could wear sweatpants or leggings! Order your favorite take out, have it delivered & turn off the lights and eat by candlelight. Get comfy on the floor in your living room, and enjoy your fast food favorites and looking at your boo by candlelight. Romance for cheap, and no dishes required.
Read Out Loud to Each Other
Grab a book you’ve been reading, or even your favorite book and read a few chapters outloud. Reading can be such an individual task, but remember growing up in school and how fun it was to listen to your teacher read to you? To really spice it up, or if you don’t wan’t to share whatever book your nose has been hidden in – try picking a couples book that you dedicate to reading together. Can be from any genre & any author, as long as you both agree that you’d want to read the book, and then take turns reading to each other. Can easily be a date night done after work, on a weekly basis.
Dress Up & Have A Photo Shoot
Because what other time is Bae going to happily agree to take 1 million photos of you for IG? Make a date night of it! Take cute “candid” pictures of him, and him for you – and even get in some timed couples photos. Who says no to getting some extra content? We don’t!
Play A Board Game
If you really wan’t to see how he feels about you, bust out that Monopoly! (Monopoly can be kind of long though so maybe whoever gets all the green, yellow or both blue’s win?) Other board game favorites would work, including child hood favorites, don’t be afraid to bust out some Uno either! Make a fun night of it with just the two of you!
Make Pizza From Scratch (or any other meal)
Making pizza from scratch could be fun, as you both would make your own personalized pizzas! Although this date night idea is not limited to just pizza, crank up the tunes, pour yourselves a drink, and get flirty in the kitchen. Teach him a think or two about what it means to “hold it down” in the kitchen – or, let him teach you. 🙂
