Just because our country is currently under lockdown does not mean that your date night should be too. Take advantage of this time and surprise your partner with a romantic date in the comfort of your very own lounge. Here are some of our favourite at home date night ideas:
Romantic Candlelit Dinner
What’s not to love about a romantic dinner at home with the love of your life? Go all out and plan a delicious three course dinner paired with beautiful wines, candles, soft jazz and of course, an outfit to die for!
If a candlelit dinner sounds a bit too cliché, have an indoor picnic instead. A delicious antipasti platter and some good wine sound perfect to us.
If you’re up for having bucket loads of fun and laughter, bring out all your favourite games. Charades, 30 Seconds or a serious dance off is one way to get the night started. Make sure that you have sufficient snacks and drinks on standby to keep you sustained and hydrated for a fun-filled evening.
Go camping without having to deal with nasty bugs and public ablution facilities. Pop up your tent in your garden and spend the night sitting around your campfire, roasting marshmallows and sharing stories with your loved one. Star-gazing in your garden just got a whole lot better!
Channel your inner Picasso and bring out the art supplies. Whether you want to learn to paint, sew or bake a cake, you’re guaranteed to find a YouTube tutorial on it. Learning a new skill with your partner sounds like the perfect bonding time to us.
Going to a spa can end up costing a fortune, but nothing is stopping you from having your very own spa date…at home! Bring out the essential oils, candles, soft music and treatment lists! You can be as extravagant as you’d like; take your spa evening to another level with fresh fruits, champagne on ice and delectable sweet treats.
Often life gets so busy that we don’t have time for the simple things. In the midst of living, our conversations tend to be rushed and superficial, rather than meaningful and impactful. So, put away all cellphones, turn off all distractions and just talk. Talk about your future, goals, dreams and ambitions. Not only would this be the epitome of quality time, but also you’re more than likely to learn things about your partner that you never knew existed.
So, whether you’re short on time or just looking for ways to spoil that special someone, we hope that our at home date night ideas came in handy!
