Marriage is a huge life transition that comes with complicated finances, housing, and insurance coverage. During the chaos of moving and wedding plans, you may forget to put in the extra effort to make your spouse feel special and loved. Although you may not have the finances to go on a fancy vacation at the time, planning a simple, inexpensive date night can spark your relationship.

We regularly save our customers between 30-60% on health insurance plans and cater to individuals from all walks of life. We have the insurance part covered, in the meantime try putting these 5 date night ideas in a jar to pull out each weekend.

Go out on the town

If you don’t have plans to visit a new city this weekend, try exploring the one you already live in! Make plans to visit a new restaurant, go for a walk in the park, check out the local art scene or have a conversation at a vintage coffee shop. If you plan on cooking dinner at home that night, grab dessert at a local donut, gelato or ice cream shop. If both you and your loved one are sports fans, make plans to see your favorite team in action. Snap a selfie while you’re there!

Road trip!

Pack a bag after work, fill up the tank with gas and set out on a road trip! Maybe you’re going south for warmer weather or north for hiking and camping — whatever you choose, this is the perfect time to bond with your partner. This date idea will help you clear your head if you are dealing with overwhelming stress from your job and the pressure that comes with being newlyweds. It doesn’t matter where you go, as long as you take the time to decompress with your favorite playlist and snacks.

Movie marathon

If you find more joy from a cozy night in than a night out on the town, a movie marathon is a perfect date for you! Grab your favorite movie or Netflix series, microwave popcorn, make a fort and spend the night in with your partner. If you are a Harry Potter fan, try making Butter Beer for your special night in! This recipe tastes just like the Butter Beer that is sold at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Rent bikes

Renting bikes is an enjoyable summer activity for both you and your partner to get some exercise outdoors. You can either ride bikes in the city or explore a bike trail in the forest, woods or countryside. Be sure to always wear a helmet, wear the appropriate riding gear and bring plenty of sunscreen and snacks.

Host a game night

Hosting a game night is a great way to get your closest friends and family involved in your life post-marriage. Spend the day cooking your favorite snacks, compiling drinks and sorting through your game closet. Crowd favorites include Scrabble, Monopoly and a variation of card games. If the party goes well, make game night a monthly occurrence.

Take a cooking class

Get your aprons ready! You can enroll in a professional cooking class at your local culinary school or Harmons. A cooking class provides a great environment to bond with your spouse, meet new friends and take home unique and delicious recipes and cooking techniques.

If you are searching for a low-budget option, take a page out of your family’s cookbook and try a new recipe from the comfort of your own home.

Visit the fair

No matter where you live, there is probably a state or county fair near you. Get out of the house to enjoy an adrenaline rush and take pictures in the photo booth to document your day. Not a fan of heights or rides that spin in a circle? Opt to visit the game booths or your favorite treat cart instead.
