MOMI TIPS| Inexpensive date nights for tired parents

Yes, you’re both tired. But there are still a lot of bills to pay and chores to finish. Life, though, isn’t all about work and responsibilities. Consider, too, that you need to take the time out of your busy schedules to connect as a couple. Book a night out at least once a month; it would do good for your sanity and your relationship. Momi Berlin lines up a few fun yet affordable date night ideas.


Coffee and cake

Date nights aren’t all about a full meal. It wouldn’t hurt to grab a few bites before leaving home and have coffee, milk tea or tea in a nearby cafe. Pair your drinks with a slice of your favorite cake.

The moment together will give you a lot of time and rediscover each other’s weaknesses and favorites. It is also your alone time for some peace and discuss plans or reminisce past events. Inexpensive date nights for tired parents

On beer and music

You can also opt for a bucket of beer in some local pubs or watering hole. Sing along in the karaoke if there’s available. To save on dinner, eat something at home before you leave.

Sometimes, it is when couples are a little tipsy that they rekindle romances and laugh at problems.

Go bowling

When was the last time you’ve been to a bowling alley? Perhaps once or never. Do something completely out of the ordinary. Give it a try, and you wouldn’t believe yourself you could knock down all the pins in one shot or on your second try. But more than all the strikes and spares, surely you will go home loving this new sport.

Coupons and deals

Coupons bring significant savings. Subscribe to sites like Metro Deal. They carry fantastic deals to you via email. Such sales are in the salon, entertainment hubs, restaurants, and other products and services. Just take note of the expiration date and other fine details like not valid on holidays.

When was the last time you went out without any kids in tow? Though it is fun and exciting to have the children with you as you watch movies or dine out, it is equally thrilling to be alone with your spouse once in a while.

So, remember parents. Even when you’re caught up in day-to-day life, squeeze a few hours for you and your spouse for some date nights. It need not always be fab and the talk of the town. Sometimes, cheap and spontaneous dates are the most romantic and cheesy. It is because there are no pretense, no expectations than to have real fun and escape home even for a few hours.

  4. Chelsea Sauve - Wandure

    Love this cute ideas! All of them include the most important element – spending time together in a shared experience.

  5. jkblooming4gmailcom

    These are really good ideas, and you’re right, you live together and eat together most days so why go with a meal when you can do other fun things instead in the small amount of time you have alone together, in my opinion a fun game of bowling is a better way to reconnect than a meal.

  6. Sheryl Chan

    I love that you highlight the need for parent couples to spend quality time together with themselves as well! Easy ideas that are doable, and meaningful.

  7. Maria Teresa Figuerres

    When we have time for ourselves which is usually when we’re fetching our son and we’d have to wait for so long, we go find something to eat. Eating together has always been our bonding moment even when we were still boyfriend/girlfriend.

  8. Lyosha Varezhkina

  16. Alexis

    My husband and I try to go out once per week without children. It is so important for a healthy marriage to have time alone without children.

  17. May De Jesus-Palacpac

    We’re hoping that our friends downstairs would move up to the unit next to ours here, so we can be more at peace leaving our kids at home on their own so we can go on a date. kakabasa ko lang na hindi daw date ang netflix sa bahay hahaha
