I am here to share some easy, simple and non stressful date night ideas. These can be used whenever or even for the upcoming holiday we all know as Valentine’s Day. This might be a day that is stressful to plan what to do for your significant other, close friend or just a friend. Here are 5 easy things to do on this day or any other date with the one you love depending on how you are feeling.

Netfix & Chill

Order food in from your favorite place and either pop in a movie or put a Netflix show on. This is just a simple evening in with your love together. It doesn’t take a lot of time or effort before hand except picking food and a movie you agree on.

Roller Rink or Bowling Alley 

This is something for those who don’t like to stay cooped up at home and doing activities. Want to have fun and be active, go out and have a friendly competition or bowling or a fun night skating around to different songs.

“New to You”

Go out and try a new restaurant that you guys have never been to. This is if you guys are feeling hungry and want to be adventurous. Step out of your comfort zone and try a cuisine you normally wouldn’t do.


Go to a Museum

Wanting to go learn something you or your partner is into. Go explore a museum that you don’t know very much about. Take some time to gain some knowledge while exploring the museum.
