Who said that date nights cannot be made amazing at home? I think that some of the most precious moments of intimacy between a couple are when they are at home, relaxed, doing something together that they love, and just spending that quality time together without having to worry about their surrounding or meeting the expectations of choosing the right restaurant or the right concert, conscious about the clothes that they’re wearing or how they look. You know how it is.
To be able to creatively connect with your partner indoors while being yourself is just the best feeling. It does take effort to plan these at-home dates, but once you start them, you will absolutely love them!
Here are some at-home date night ideas that you can try with your partner –
- Play board games
Make game night your date night! Get that Scrabble board (and maybe some wine with it too) and get with it. Playing games is a really fun way of spending time together (unless you are super competitive and get into a fight. Don’t do that!)
- Cook a fancy meal together
Let the kitchen romance get some heat, y’all! Who needs to go to a restaurant for a date night when you can cook a beautiful exotic meal together in your very own kitchen, along with some romance? It’s gonna taste better than restaurant food for sure! Put some music on, and cook away. And then of course, set the table, along with some roses and candles, and have the best date night ever.
- Netflix & Chill
Now, this is a very common go-to idea for a date night but an effective one too! Get some popcorn, change into your pyjamas, choose a movie together, and watch away! You can definitely skip the movie theatre experience where the annoying child cries in front of you, the man with the long legs keeps kicking your seat, the phones ringing and the loud talking. Isn’t this at-home option much better?
- Try DIY stuff
If you and your partner are into creative things, this is something you should definitely try. You could make impressive decorations for your home, create stuff like lamps, bags out of clothes, stationary items, etc. When you create something together, it is really exciting and fun. Try it!
- Learn a new language together
Now this is a very creative way to spend time with your partner and have some fun, while you learn a new language – an added bonus! You could maybe learn the language of a country you both want to visit together for a vacation sometime in the future. Two birds one stone.
At-home date nights can be very refreshing, intimate, and exciting! Try them and you’ll only fall deeper in love with them, and with your partner too of course.
