Valentine’s Day has been and gone, but that doesn’t mean you can skip date night!
Still, we understand that going out may not be an option for you due to other commitments, or maybe you just don’t fancy venturing out into the cold. Either way, date nights at home are always a great, cheap and easy alternative to visiting busy restaurants or freezing to death at the cinema. To prove our point, we’ve come up with four ways to enjoy date night at home.
DIY Dinner & A Movie
While it may seem cliché to some, there’s a reason why dinner and a movie remains a dating staple around the world. However, it can be expensive and occasionally less than enjoyable, especially during winter when people tend to be a bit moody and the weather is uncomfortable. Next date night, opt for a cheaper, cosier option by cooking a dinner you and your significant other love – maybe a homemade spaghetti dish followed by a tiramisu. Or, you know, get a good takeout. Then settling down to watch a movie or two, you could even watch an entire franchise, or a box set.
Get Your Game On
Nothing gets a couple more fired up than a little healthy competition, so what could possibly revive a relationship more than a game night? If you’re both into board games, it’s time to dust off your old copy of Monopoly or purchase a newer title like Taboo. Alternatively, if you’re a more tech savvy pair raise the stakes by looking into bitcoin special offers and playing online games such as poker, blackjack or even roulette if you’ve got lady luck on your side. Of course, you don’t have to play at crypto-currency iGaming operators, but it definitely adds another layer of intrigue to your date night.
Get Creative & Crafty
For couples that thrive together through creativity, there are plenty of crafty date night ideas to try. Firstly, you could create a scrapbook together logging every special night, trips and other memorable events together in a neat little package. To go extra cheesy, add some cute quotes and lean into how adorable you are together. If that’s not for you, you could always go big and do some decorating together. Instead of crafting a book, work on crafting a home and see how well the two of you work together. It doesn’t have to be a big project that takes a while, just a little DIY project dabble to see how it goes.
Listen To Music Together
These days, music is just as important when it comes to commonalities as movies, hobbies and personal beliefs for many people. If you’re a huge music fan, it’s time to devote a night to sharing your favourites with your partner, and then listening to their favourite songs as well. At worst you’ll have a laugh about your partners baffling music taste, and at best you’ll find some new music that you enjoy as well as grow closer to your significant other.
