5 awesome date ideas that wont break the bank.

Hey readers,

As a parent, it can be hard fitting in time alone with your partner, as time is so precious but I think it is important to take some time when you can to do something together as a couple.

 Here are my top five things to do on a date night that won't cost the bank. 

1) Film. 

I suppose the simplest thing you can do is watch a film with popcorn and you don't have to live the home. I always find good is being mindful and turning off the old technology.

2) Breakfast date.

 Something that I and the other half do now that my eldest is at school and the other one is at nursery is going for breakfast at a cafe.  it is refreshing and a tad bizarre but find it really pleasant to do something different rather than the normal discussion over who is doing the washing.

3) Boardgames.

I know this might not be to everyone's taste, though this does float my boat and that is playing a board game. I love exploding kittens and Monopoly to name some. It is great to get competitive and it is great lighthearted aware to spend an even with your hubby.

4) Baking. 

 This slightly unusual with the next suggestion being baking, however in my experience if it something that myself and hubby enjoy. I feel it is a way to relax and make a creation together in the kitchen.

5) Walkies. 

 If that doesn't tickle your pickle then going outdoors for a walk is a lovely way to spend time together. plus. it doesn't get the world and it gives you a chance bye of scenery which is always a winner in my book.

  1. Great ideas, everyone should make time for a date night #anythinggoes@_karendennis

  2. My fella and I often go out for breakfast while the kids are at school. It's such a nice treat.
    Great ideas x

  3. So many of these things bring back memories of the stuff I used to do with my husband. These days it seems like we are living different lives. We'd go out for brunch on Saturdays when we didn't have the little ones, and loved board games and movies. Now I watch movies downstairs while he watches sport upstairs. We don't play board games, I'll get the laptop out and he'll be glued to his phone. Maybe we need to wind things back about and try some of your suggestions. x

  4. All good ideas but my favorite is the breakfast out. Sounds lovely! #MMBC

  5. I like the idea of baking! Wonder if hubby would go for it. Maybe if the date ended in us eating chocolate chip cookies, he would give it a try.

  7. Some really good ideas here, as our son is still young Date Nights have to be at home rather than outdoor. Watching a film is a good one (as long as I can stay awake long enough to see it all) and a Breakfast Date sounds good when he is older.

  8. We do breakfast dates more than any other meal, also golf is something we do together. Time apart with our own interests is good, but time together is important too. #DreamTeam

  9. I love playing games or watching a movie at home! #DreamTeam
