Fun and Low-Cost Date Ideas for People with Disabilities

If you or someone you know has a physical or mental disability, you know it can be challenging and even frustrating to find activities to do with a significant other. This can be dependent on handicap accessibility, physical obstacles, climate, and more. However, dating with a disability can still be just as enjoyable. Here are some fun ideas to run by your partner. 

 

Make your own movie night 

Instead of traveling to the movie theater and paying for tickets and overpriced snacks, making your own movie night can not only be easier but is much more comfortable, especially if you have a physical restriction. Making your own snack plates or boards can save money and be nice to share while watching a movie. Theaters don’t always have the most relaxing seats and have no additional comfort. Grab an armful of blankets and your softest pillows and enjoy a new movie in the comfort of your own home. Hit the lights and pick out your favorite scented candle to create a better environment. 

 

Show your creativity and do a craft night 

Making art is not only fun but is a great way to reduce stress. Head to the nearest craft store and pick out a project to do with your partner. This could be anything from painting a small canvas, stringing some friendship bracelets, making seasonal decorations, or even making homemade gifts for each other. 

 

Get competitive with some board games 

Grab a stack of board games or cards and get into some friendly competition! Couples can even try a new board or card game each week and have weekly competitions. Board games are a fun way to escape the stress of everyday routines and share some laughs over the coffee table. 

 

Bake some treats together 

Nothing brings people together more than good food. Staying in on a weekend night and baking together is an easy and cheap idea that can work for many disabilities. Bake some seasonal muffins or try a new recipe together to enjoy after dinner. 

 

Do a DIY spa day at home 

Everyone can have a relaxing night after a busy or stressful week. Contrary to popular belief, spa days are beneficial to both women and men. Try warm, damp towels on your face, try a great-scented face mask, and get into your comfiest clothes. Light a candle, put on a meditation video, and practice breathing techniques. Self-care is important and can help ease the anxiety that may come with certain disabilities. 

 

Going for a walk and stopping by local shops

While this may be a little more challenging if you have certain medical conditions or disabilities, getting outside and walking is a great way to de-stress, get some exercise, and spend some quality time with your significant other. Stopping in local shops can be fun and help support their business.
