Double Date Night Ideas
Host Game Night
Game nights are a beloved double date night idea. It’s a terrific way to spend time having a friendly competition with another couple. The steps are pretty simple. First, get in touch with another couple and offer to host game night. You can make dinner for everyone, but it does have the potential to create added stress on the evening.
So, just keep it simple by having finger foods, snacks and drinks. Sometimes the most difficult aspect of couples game night can be choosing the best game to play. If you are like me, you may not have an abundant collection of board or card games. Solution? Just encourage everyone to bring their favorites games and have the group decide which to play. Here’s some inspiration!
