If you don’t already have a chessboard and set, you can pick up an inexpensive one and learn to play together.

We built a fire pit in our backyard and some of our favorite at-home dates involve sitting by the fire, sipping wine, and just talking. hang a string or make these homemade tiki-torches to create a romantic and cozy backyard atmosphere.
You might think my husband would have to con me into this one, but watching a sporting event is one date night we both enjoy equally.
I’m lucky to have a romantic and adventurous husband (he’s Italian) who helps break the “dinner and a movie” routine and try new things.

We decided long ago that we would make weekly date nights a priority, but also that many of these date nights would happen at home after the kids were in bed (cheaper, easier, and not a problem if we fall asleep by 10 PM).
Over the years, I’ve developed a list of some of our favorite at-home date ideas.
