Love on the Run

We live in a world where everything needs to be hassle- free and fast!  How would you like a date night in a bag, sort of like fast food?  This date idea can be ready in a jiffy!  We know life can get hectic and this idea is something you can prepare now and have ready whenever you need it.  I like to use our date in a bag whenever the kiddos are in bed and we actually have a little bit of free time.  A big thanks to Aileen from Lil’ Buckaroo Designs for the incredible printables!

Introducing……Date Night in a Bag!

You can make your very own date night in a bag! The first thing you need to do is grab a bag.  I found mine at the Dollar Tree for $.50.  Then, all you need to do is glue the printable bag cover on the outside of the bag.

P.S. Did you notice the “His” tag on the bag?   That tag simply means it is “His” turn to plan and fill the date bag.  After “His” turn, there is a tag that means it is a “Hers” turn.

The Date in a Bag Ingredients

After you get a bag, you need to think of a date idea to go inside of it.  My husband and I wanted to see the movie, Red.  So I Netflixed the Red movie and bought a ton of red treats to go with the movie.

I then put all of the items in a bag and voila, date night in a bag is ready to go!  Now whenever we have a chance for a date night…we are SET!

How would you like TEN different date ideas to put in your bag?

Great! So just download the printable pack below!

Dating your spouse doesn’t have to be a big event.  It can be something that is simple and easy!  This is a fast idea that will have lasting effects on your date night. 🙂

  1. Thank you for keeping it simple, fun and doable! Plus cute and free!!!! … No EXCUSES now! Lots of fabulous ideas, but which one to choose??? LOL

  2. Cori, Brandy J. here from Just Our Style. I purchased the silver earring backings from one of the local craft stores (Roberts, Michaels, JoAnns…not sure which one). Great blog. I’m your newest follower.

  3. I am surprising my husband with a weekend in the mountains. I would love to give him a bag like this as his hint as to what we’re doing.
    I’m thinking of an area map, new toque, hot chocolate mix….can anyone add?

  4. I so smiled when I saw this because literally the friday during v-day week(we just exchanged cards on the 14th) my husband and I had this happen:

    him: you think when you get home we can have a no cell/laptop night?
    me: Yep Yep Yep!, can we have a picnic in bed (mainly where we have a made bed and eat a take-out dinner there because we typically dinner at the table, ;).) and get a redbox movie?
    him: how about leftover chicken noodle stew and netflix?
    me: Okay….
    him: What were you thinking, Subway?
    me: Now that sounds yummy…

    then we preceded to throw out movie names and realized that redbox had two movies we wanted to see and netflix none

    Soooo…..On my way home I stopped got the subs, the movies, a couple of cheap sweets and whala, Date in a Bag (it was a walgreens bag, but it worked just the same, ha), I literally thought of the corny yet sweet name right as I was walking through the door.

    Im sure its because even though I hadn’t seen this post, I have been on this site many times to look for sweet at home date ideas, and hence the quick on my feet title for our spur of the moment awesome date night to end the week of love.

    p.s. last month I did my own version of the Castaway date after being inspired by the one on here, which was so fun. love mixing it up.

  5. Hey, I came across this idea on pinterest and love it! It’s such a fun, easy and quick thing to do and I’m excited to try it out. I posted a link to your blog from mine. Thanks so much for the fun idea! Love your blog by the way, I always check it out for date ideas!

  6. I love your cute printables but am a bit disappointed that so many of your date night ideas involve MOVIES or NETFLICKS. would love to see more active, cultural, educational date night ideas.

    1. Hi Ellen, thank you for your input! We definitely try to create dates based on what our readers request. We are always coming out with more and would love any suggestions you have for future dates. In the meantime you should check out our Around the World date series, library and bookstore dates, our getting fit challenge or 50 Healthy and Active Dates, to name a few. One of my favorites is the Farmers Market date and the tourist in your own city (or explore a new city) since we have lived in several states across the country these dates can be done over and over with only the location or farmer’s market changing. I hope that gives you some good ideas for what you are looking for but we would LOVE to hear any ideas you’d like to see created into a date! XO
