A date does not have to cost a lot of money or have to be out of town for it to be special; all you really need is to be with your significant other to make a date memorable. When you are in a relationship, there will be times when you will feel too tired to dress up for date night, that you would rather stay at home and relax. But who said that you have to get out of the house to have a date? You can have one at home!
If you and your partner feel like having a date at the comfort of your own home, here are some ideas that you can use for your next home date night.
Have a Drink Tasting Night
Why not set up your very own drink tasting? Nothing would beat a night enjoyed with drinks together with that someone special. Pick a poison of choice first, you can have whiskey, tequila vodka or wine, whatever both of you will agree on. Get a variety of your chosen drinks, bring out some of your fancy glasses and enjoy.
Whoever says that only women can enjoy having a cooking session? You can get a little adventurous in the kitchen with your special someone, and you can even try to make a new dish together. You can look for something that you have never tried cooking before; perhaps you can think of a new cuisine to make or take a page out of a cookbook. Bake a cake, make muffins, cook pasta – cook anything at all and have fun together in the kitchen. Turn the music up and dance around the kitchen together while the two of you are cooking. When you are done, you can open a bottle of wine and enjoy what you have cooked.
A Themed Home Date Night
You can turn up your usual dinner and movie night at home by thinking of a theme to make things even more exciting. For example, your theme for one date night is Italian so you can have pizza or pasta with a bottle of Chianti for dinner and gelato for your dessert while a relaxing Italian music is playing in the background. You can even watch a movie that is also Italian themed so that you can really feel the Italian ambiance. You can have a little trip around the world in the comfort of your own home.
Movie or TV Show Marathon
You can have an X-men marathon, or watch all of your favorite movies of Sandra Bullock. Date night can also be a good time to catch up on both of your favorite TV Shows. This is a great way to spend a chill Friday or Saturday night. You can set up a cozy couch in front of the television, buy different flavors of popcorn and soda, dim the lights, pull a comforter out and set your eyes on the television screen while sharing warmth from each other.
