When it comes to a play, check the discount ticket sites to see if there are decent seats available at reduced prices. You don't get socked with the face price of tickets when all you want to do is enjoy the company of your sweetie. Movie theaters are more hit and miss when it comes to finding cheap tickets, but it's not impossible.
Freshening Up on Short Notice Looking good is key to the date night. After all, it's about being romantic and looking good for your partner. But chances are good that you don't have your full makeup kit with you, and you need to make a stop for some products. The best option is to head over to the nearest mall for a quick stop. You can find travel-sized makeup kits at Sephora, and Bath and Body Works carries lotions, oils, and body sprays to help you feel and smell good.
Also in the same vein of finding inexpensive tickets is to use coupons from Sephora to help you save money on your purchase. Bath and Body Works also has coupons you can use to reduce your total bill. You get in and out quickly without spending a fortune for a quick freshening up.
Getting a Babysitter This is not always an easy task, especially last-minute. But it's not an impossible one if you persevere. Start by going through your list of reliable babysitters to see if someone's available. Strike out there? Try family members next. There might be someone available who wouldn't mind taking the kids for a few hours. And if those fail, try babysitting apps that have a pool of people available and don't mind being hired on short notice. When it comes to using apps, go with companies that have some history behind them as they tend to attract more reliable individuals to sign up with them.
A last-minute date night is an opportunity to feel like all the cares in the world have been lifted for a few hours. Take the opportunity when it comes and enjoy the time you have alone with your loved one.
