Date Night Ideas for Homebodies 

Anyone that personally knows me can tell you that I am very much an introvert. I truly hate having to leave the house and socialize. I will come up with any excuse or diversion to get out of social outings. When it comes to date nights, I try to plan at least one a month so Nick and I can spend quality time together. Sometimes though, I would much rather cuddle up and stay inside. 

I wanted to share a few of my personal favorite date night ideas for all the other homebodies out there. There is nothing wrong with saving money and staying in to spend time with your significant other.

Create a 4-course meal together. This can get really fun if you pick a theme and roll with it. I want to plan a French themed meal one night for me and Nick. 

Going hand in hand with the French meal.. 

Create your own at-home wine tasting. There are some companies that will sell mini bottles of wine so you can taste test before purchasing. I love trying new things and who doesn't love a glass of wine to unwind?!

Plan a night of playing old video games or any game in general that you both enjoy. Nick and I grew up playing Mario Kart and Donkey King so I want to bust out the Nintendo 64. 

Lay out on a blanket under the stars... or better yet an air mattress! Spring time is ALMOST here and I am so excited to get some fresh air in the evenings. Growing up, one of my favorite things to do was hang out outside at night. Gazing at the stars is such a peaceful feeling. 

Blaze up a fire pit and roast some marshmallows. Another good way of getting outdoors this Spring is getting cozy by a fire. Roasting marshmallows and star gazing sounds like absolute bliss to me. 

Grab some cheap movies from Walmart and have a movie night. I love watching old movies and it's always interesting when Nick hasn't seen an 80's or 90's movie. I'ms such a movie buff that I have seen just about everything. Walmart has some $5 movie bins and they are the best place to pick up those old gems. 

There are so many creative ways that you can have an awesome date night inside with your honey. I will always look for a way to stay inside rather than going out. I wanted to add one little note before I sign off here.... Even if you decide to stay in, these are still dates. Looking nice for your man on date night should be a great feeling. Unless your indoor plans require "special pajamas" then take this time to fix yourself up a little. Of course, this is preference so you definitely don't have to abide by those "rules" lol. 

Share what your favorite date night indoors is. New ideas can never hurt!
