We all deserve a date night every once in a while. If you have a special someone in your life, take a moment and plan a special romantic date night. It doesn’t have to be expensive or crazy difficult, just a great evening where you can enjoy each other. Don’t have any ideas? Take a look at the five romantic date night ideas below.
1. Cuddle Night
Sometimes nothing is better than a night spent in each other’s arms. Very little is required by spending time together. To make it romantic make this cuddle kit from The Dating Divas. All you need is:
- A soft blanket
- Wine, champagne, or sparkling juice
- Chocolate dessert
- A romantic movie (whatever that means to you)
- A few candles
- Romantic music
Throw everything in a basket and then let the night begin. Cuddle up on the couch, bed, or rug together, pop in the movie and enjoy. Then, after the movie, spend more cuddle time talking and listening to music.
2. Candlelight Dinner
You don’t have to go to a fancy restaurant to enjoy a fancy dinner. Instead, make your date night a dinner in. Dress up to the nines. Wear your favorite dress and heels. Spend time on your hair and makeup. Do whatever you need and want to do to make you feel beautiful and sexy. Then, set up the dinner table with your best tableware, open a bottle of wine, and eat a delicious meal by the candlelight. You can make your own dinner of Cocos Mushroom Chicken, or order out and make someone else do the work.
3. Be a Little Silly
A romantic evening doesn’t always have to be serious. Instead of getting dolled up, embrace your fun side. Challenge your sweetheart to a competition. Choose three activities that you both enjoy and then compete. You can choose anything and everything. Challenge each other to a pizza-eating contest, a Pacman best of three, and ice skating.

4. Ask Questions
No matter how long you’ve been together, spending a night or day talking is always a great idea. Turn off your phones. Turn off the TV. Remove every distraction and play a little light music in the background. Then, sit down with each other and start asking questions. Ask silly questions, “If you were the last man on earth, what would you do?”and ask serious questions, “What is your biggest fear professionally?” Get a list of 100 questions from LifeHack.
5. Get Outside
Date nights don’t always have to be indoors. The great outdoors, or your great backyard, offer plenty of romantic opportunities. Pitch a tent, or just grab a soft, warm blanket and pillows and lie down under the stars. Spend some time looking at the constellations and talking about everything in the universe. Then, build a bonfire and roast up some marshmallows and s’mores. Spending time outside can make almost any date night romantic.
