10 Fun Halloween Date Night Ideas

Buy costumes at a thrift store and go out to eat.

One of the best places to go costume shopping is the thrift store. You can find an assortment of Halloween costumes that you can wear that are extremely affordable. Why not dress up as a character from one of your favorite 90’s movies and visit a restaurant you love… or even try a new restaurant.

Go to the movies dressed in costumes and watch something scary.

There’s always scary movies out during October. Buy 2 tickets to the movies and get scary in costumes.

Binge watch scary movies or watch a Halloween related show.

If you feel like staying in, binge watch American Horror Story. Some of the episodes from the series are absolutely creepy. Check it out if you haven’t seen it or watch another Halloween themed show.

Bake Halloween goodies.

Find a recipe on Pinterest and recreate it in your kitchen.

Dress up for Halloween and go dancing at a club.

Have a good time dancing with your significant other. Usually the weekend of Halloween clubs have costume contests. You can dress up and maybe even win a prize.
