Spending time with your husband at home couldn’t be more “intimate” when there is no waiter, no friends, and none of the general public hovering about.
People often put pressure on dates and think there needs to be some sort of production quality to them and that you couldn’t possibly have them at home. Whether you have one hour, several, or the whole day to spare, it’s straightforward to make this intimate space a more significant part of your romantic life. So cancel that night on the town and try these at-home date ideas instead, you’ll have more fun anyway.
A Fancy Dinner
Get dressed up for a fancy dinner, but have it at home. Buy something special to eat, something you would have in a restaurant like a juicy steak from the butchers and a full-bodied red wine. Get some chunky salsa and chips or fresh bread and oil and serve it up like you would get when you go out. Have three courses and make the table up as if you were in a restaurant, just your own little private one.
Buy some canvases and some paint, and then pop open your favorite bottle. Find something to have as your painting subject and get going. Just have a laugh together and see what you both come up with.
Set up a projector in the backyard and watch your favorite movie under the stars. What could be more romantic than that?
If it’s raining or cold outside, then get comfy and enjoy a movie marathon together. Alternate between each other’s favorites and get snuggled up on the sofa in your favorite throw blanket.
Learn A New Skill Together
Try and learn to play one song on a guitar, knit a square for a scarf, or even learn a fun magic trick.
Throw A Party
…Just for the two of you. Crank up the music from the speakers, get out some nibbles and party food, and make yourselves a pitcher of your favorite cocktail.
Just in your backyard. Whether you love the outdoors or not, an outdoor camping date it so much fun. You can make it as rough or as comfortable as you like! Additionally, the best part is that you don’t even have to leave your backyard!
Turn Your Bedroom Into A Hotel Room
Staying at a fancy hotel always feels like a real treat, but it may not always be in the budget so that you can turn your home into an elegant hotel room for an ultra-luxe and romantic stay at home date idea. Collecting sample sizes of fancy body lotion and other skincare products, light a few scented candles and turn on soft music, place a bottle of champagne in a bucket of ice near the bed, then watch movies in bed and pretend you’re watching hotel pay-per-view, order in your favorite food and eat it in bed and in the morning, make a simple breakfast and serve it in bed on a tray.
Have An At-Home Spa
Slip into comfy spa-style robes and slippers and then get out some face masks and body scrubs or buy them premade. Run a bath for you both and drop in a beautiful bath bomb. Fill a pitcher of water and infuse it with cucumbers and mint or other infusions and enjoy.
