Quality time is important if you want to keep the romance alive between you and your partner. While nights out are definitely fun, it’s not always possible. There are times when a babysitter is not available or when money is tight―situations like these call for a little creativity.
Staying at home does not have to be boring. With a little imagination, you can enjoy a fun stay-at-home date night. Here are romantic bonding ideas you can do in the comfort of your own home.
Themed Movie Night
Choose a movie and make it your theme for the night. Center everything around it and pay attention to details. Are you into Chinese action films? You can have dim sum for dinner. Watching something Italian? Prepare pasta and gelato. You can go for an ‘80s night, a Mexican night, or a romantic comedy night. There are many themes to choose from. It will take your movie experience from something ordinary to something more exciting.
Board Game Date
Don’t be afraid to be a bit nerdy once in a while. Bring out your board games and challenge one another. Keep yourselves entertained with good ol’ Scrabble or snakes and ladders. This old-school idea will surely bring back memories of your childhood. Don’t forget to prepare finger foods you can eat while playing. Nachos and small sandwiches with beer sound are a good idea too.
Wine And Cheese Night
Buy yourself several bottles of wine (they do not have to be expensive) and several kinds of cheese. You can have your own wine tasting session at home. Take note of which ones you like and which combinations you think work. After you’re done with the tasting, you can binge-watch your favorite series. This is a perfect date idea for a slow Friday night without the kids.
Under The Stars
Something as simple as moving your table to the garden can make a huge difference in your dinner. Have a romantic evening under the stars and enjoy the novelty of having dinner in your backyard. The new environment will make the meal more memorable. Make sure to keep your gadgets out of sight to ensure that you pay attention to each other.
Couple Spa Date
Want to relax but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars in spa treatments? Why not arrange your own spa night at home? Prepare to give each other massages and just bond while doing some self-care rituals. Of course, don’t forget your bathroom essentials. Purchase massage oils, nice robes, and maybe even a bathroom caddy.
Something that can make your couple bath time even more special is Epsom salt. Epsom salt is made from magnesium and sulfate, and it can help you with relaxation. There are numerous health and beauty benefits associated with Epsom salt.
