When you think of a romantic date, the first thing that comes to mind is usually going out. However, there are plenty of romantic date ideas that you can do at home with just a bit of fuss, and they’re all fun!
Everyone has different tastes when it comes to romance. Some people enjoy wine and cheese dates, some folk prefer candlelit dinners, while others relish the idea of cuddling up on the couch with a Netflix marathon. Fortunately, there are so many ways to spice up your ordinary nights in that they become extraordinary! Here are 14 ideas to consider when you want to create a romantic evening at home.
1.Prepare a two-person tasting party.
Buy two of your favourite cheeses and two different wines. Serve the wines with cheese and crackers and try to guess which one you’re drinking.
2.Make dinner together.
This can be cooking something simple like macaroni and cheese or more complicated like paella. By doing this, you’ll get to spend time together while also working up an appetite for something delicious!
3.Consider a cocktail party.
Make a few different cocktails and enjoy the evening by drinking and talking with your partner. For added fun, try drinking out of fancy glasses like martini glasses or champagne flutes!
As long as there isn’t too much light pollution, you can see many stars from Earth on an average night. Pick a clear night and go outside with some blankets and snacks. Lay down on the grass and take in your surroundings, or use it as an opportunity to be romantic with one another under the stars!
You can either do this by borrowing some canvases and paints from a friend or relative, or you can buy a kit. Set a time limit to see who can paint the best picture, and then hang it in your house afterwards!
6.Put together a puzzle.
Go to a thrift shop or dollar store and pick out an aesthetically pleasing puzzle that you can put together as a pair. It’s fun because it’s challenging!
7.Do a game night.
Buy several board games that the two of you don’t already own and try them all out. It’s fun to see who can win at each game, and it helps if you pick classics like Monopoly or Guess Who!
8.Play dress up.
Get your partner to model different outfits while you act as the photographer. You can give them some direction or let them strike their own pose, but you’ll have a good time either way!
9.Go back to the beginning.
Watch your favourite movie from when you first started dating and snuggle with one another while also reminiscing about how far you’ve come as a couple. It’s a lovely way to reconnect with your partner.
10.How about dancing?
It doesn’t matter how good you are at dancing, because in this case, practice makes perfect! Put on some romantic tunes and show each other your best moves. You can get inspired by movies like Footloose or The Last Five Years.
11.Have a cooking contest.
Buy any ingredients that you don’t usually get to cook with and see who can make the tastiest meal. Whoever goes over better with your friends and family members gets a prize!
12.Go on an adventure in the city.
This might mean going on a secret picnic in a park or taking a walk at night when everything is lit up after dark. It’s fun because you get to explore your city in an exciting way.
13.Do a role-playing challenge.
Think of two characters from a TV show or book that you’ve really enjoyed and take turns being them while the other person acts out your surroundings. You can get as serious or silly with this idea as you want, so have fun!
14.Make a spa night for both of you.
There are plenty of ways you can pamper yourself and your partner. You can buy face masks, body scrubs, candles, bubble bath, etc. The sky’s the limit!
We believe there are plenty other ideas for a romantic date night at home, but these are enough to make your partner love you more.
