Unique Date Night Ideas - Creative Date Ideas for Any Budget


Whether you're celebrating an anniversary or simply spicing up a blessedly-free weekend, these are the best date ideas that get you fun quality time with your husband.

Take a cue from your childhood and play MadLibs, using inside jokes that you know will have the other one in stitches. For something a little less Grated, try the adult version of the classic party game, available at the iTunes store. You don't need anything more than your phone and each other!

So maybe you'll never be on Fixer Upper, but that doesn't mean you can't unleash your inner Chip and Joanna. Get to painting and redecorating a room in your house — even if it's just by adding little touches to make it more you.

If one of you knows how to play piano or guitar — or any other instrument — sing through your favorite songs together. Grab a bottle of wine and make it an at-home karaoke bar.

And then see what sort of fresh dinner you can make with those ingredients. Look at you, locavores! RELATED: 39 Longtime Couples Share the Marriage Tip That's Kept Them Together

Live like you're in La La Land and dress up in your finest, see some live jazz, drink some whiskey (or your choice of beverage), and get transported to what will feel like another era...minus the Ryan Gosling.

Have it go around your city or town, filled with clues based on your ~history~ together.

Whether its chess or you geek out and play Catan, it's fun to get competitive. Competition is sexy, right?

See a concert — not just major headliners at huge venues, but check out smaller places which showcase indie artists and up-and-comers.

Dig up old photos or dig into what you can find on ancestry.com and learn all about each other's history. Maybe even book a trip to where your great great great grandparents are from.

Find a great roof in your neighborhood — maybe it's your own, maybe it's on top of a nearby building, maybe it's at a rooftop bar — and take in the view together. Bonus points if you climb the stairs to get there.

Sign up for a music class together and learn a new instrument. Then, carve out a time during the week to practice together. Research suggests working together to learn a new skill can actually tighten your bond.

Ice cream is sweet and so is love. And why does it always have to be dinner? Dessert is great. RELATED: 20 Desserts That Might Actually Be Better Than Sex

Learn some sweet moves to show off later.

Everything's easier when you're on a team. And maybe you'll even win a prize!

Because life is sweet when food is cheap. Plus, it's fun to discover new and interesting types of foods and vendors.

Get your best retro outfit on (or not) and score — literally.

It doesn't have to be an intense hike where you go all Reese Witherspoon in Wild — find a cool trail nearby and take in the sights (and get some steps in, too!).

Whether you end up grilling or playing soccer or just lying down in the grass and cracking up, you'll have a great outdoorsy time. Just don't wear white pants.

Make it your mission to start taking photos of all the things you see. Go on a car ride and find great places to shoot.

Whether you rent a rowboat and get super rom-com-ish or you do a booze cruise, everything is somehow better when you're on a boat. RELATED: The 55 Most Romantic Movies Guaranteed to Put You In the Mood

You know how you sometimes say to each other, "We are so not club people?" But when if you went out with the literal intention of just dancing together? All the people grinding on strangers will be jealous of your fun moves.

This is sort of obligatory in winter. It's romantic and exercised disguised as fun!

You scoff at it, but there are probably some really cool views and things to do. Be shameless for a day.

Shoot some pool, drink some beer, and call it an awesome night. Oh, and try to win. RELATED: 40 Ways to Divorce-Proof Your Marriage

And play stylist for one another. You may be surprised how well he knows your sense of style, and vice versa.

In the summertime — if you have a backyard — put on the sprinklers and set up a Slip'N'Slide. Sure, you're adults, but who says you can't be young at heart?

You want to get away, but you don't have the time for a huge vacation. Pick a B&B in a town nearby. Maybe you'll discover it has some cool restaurants, art, and shops.

...And let your training turn into a regular date, since you'll need to prep if you're running a race. Think about how awesome it will feel when you both run your first 5K — or marathon! And then think about the post-marathon sex...

You have some of the mix-ins and you have some staple booze, but do you have all the things that your favorite artisanal bars have, from the pomegranate molasses to the chocolate bitters? Stock up and learn how to make drinks yourselves — and then every night can be a night at the cocktail bar.

See your favorite comedian, or see a roster of up-and-comers — you never know where you'll be seeing them next. Besides, life can be hard, and you deserve to laugh until your beer comes out your nose.
