It is said that home is where the heart is. Instead of booking a dinner reservation or buying movie tickets for your significant other this Valentine’s Day, why not spend quality time together in the home you have built? With these five ideas for at-home dates, you can have a romantic and relaxing time celebrating your love.
Cooking by candlelight
To have a romantic meal, a restaurant does not have to be filled with waiters, hosts, and other couples. Take a recipe from your favourite restaurant or recreate one from your favourite restaurant at home. Take out your aprons, pans, and ingredients to create a meal together. As well as being fun and romantic, this experience also allows you to create something delicious together.
Netflix & Chill
Skip the sticky floors and overpriced snacks at your local theatre. Rather, log on to your streaming platform, find a romantic movie, or something you both want to watch, and press play. Ensure your room is cosy by pulling out all of your blankets and pillows. Make a comfortable and romantic night in by lighting a few candles, grabbing some snacks, and snuggling together.
Grab those old games
When you’re on a date night with your loved one, being playful is one of the best parts. Get ready to laugh and compete this Valentine’s Day when you bust out those dusty board games. You have the opportunity to strengthen your relationship whether you play strategy games, problem-solving games, or light-hearted games. Play games, have a snack and enjoy some time with your significant other as you sit back and relax.
Relax & Pamper
For a day of pure relaxation, nothing beats a spa day. Right? Turn your home into a pampering extravaganza instead of spending hundreds at the spa. Put a few aromatherapy candles on, take a bath filled with bubbles or bath bombs, grab some mud masks and relax. It won’t be long until you’re both relaxed and ready for a romantic night.
Plan a Scavenger Hunt
Do you have a nice gift for your partner? You can also write clues that will lead them to a nice reward at the end, rather than wrapping it up and hanging it for them. Make this scavenger hunt even more fun by including creative clues, such as photos, riddles, or silly notes.
