Every time The Mister and I have a Saturday morning date, I always wonder why we don’t do it more often. Most of the time, morning dates are cheaper(and if you need a babysitter, cheaper too!) and if you’re doing an activity there seems to be a lot fewer people which is a huge win for this introvert. I’m also much more of a morning person, so I love morning dates!
Here are 10 Saturday morning date ideas:
1. Morning movies
Saturday morning movies are cheaper AND there are very few people in the theatre. It’s seriously a win-win for me! Plus you aren’t usually tempted by the usual theatre food so the date can be really cheap.
Brunch is everyone’s favourite meal of the day. That’s a fact. Brunch can be a cheaper meal than dinner too. Of course, you can always go to a fancy brunch restaurant and spend some cash too.
3. Morning at the beach
Catching a sunset on the beach may be the most spectacular and romantic date night possible. Of course, even if you go later in the morning, you’ll be able to enjoy the sunshine and fewer people still.
4. Picnic at the park
If movies have taught me anything, picnics in the park are literally the second most romantic date night possible. Pack your picnic basket with your favourite food and bring a blanket and enjoy some good conversation.
5. Workout session
The couple who sweats together, stays together. Get your endorphins going with an at-home workout or go to a fun workout class and sweat together.
6. Take a bike ride together
A lazy bike ride is a great way to get outdoors with your spouse. It’s also an activity if you can’t get a babysitter that’s great for all ages.
7. Take a walk in nature
If you’re not into biking, taking a walk holding hands is a great way to have some great conversations. And, just like the bike ride is something you can do with your kids if you can’t get a babysitter.
8. Coffee and donuts
Coffee and donuts go hand-in-hand. It’s also super cheap if you’re broke, and can be done even before work if there’s time.
9. Dessert for breakfast
Donuts are not the only kind of sweet food that’s acceptable at breakfast. Dessert food is good at any time, but there’s something about eating dessert for breakfast that feels SO right.
10. Thrift store shopping
Yard sales or thrift store shopping is a fun date idea for the cheap at heart. You can spend as much or as little as you want.
Making time to spend as a couple is vital to a happy marriage, but if you’re broke or you have kids it gets a bit more challenging but having morning dates is a great way to keep dating your spouse at all stages.
So tell me, what are your favourite Saturday morning dates?
