Date nights at home are a great way to kick back, avoid the crowds, and spend some time together in the place you love the most. To help you get inspired for your next romantic evening in, check out these five fun ideas for lazy date nights at home:
1. You Spa My Fire, My One Desire
Leave the stresses of everyday life behind and create your own indulgent spa experience. Gather an electric essential oil diffuser, plush bath towels, fairy lights or candles, and some slow, wind-down music to set the scene. Then, have a rose petal bath together, do some couples massages, or even add an element of fun with face masks (and silly selfies).
2. The King & Queen Of The Pillow Castle
Blanket forts are a fun way to transport yourselves somewhere else for a few hours – all without even having to pack an overnight bag. Youtube is a great place to explore how-tos that will tell you exactly how to make a huge blanket and pillow fort for a date night, complete with fairy lights.
Once you have your plush fort set up, you can watch movies on a tablet or laptop. You could enjoy snacks and board games or simply have a good old-fashioned spoon for a few hours, blissfully unaware of anything going on outside your special date night space.
3. Get Somebody Else To Cook Up A Storm
In America, over 30% of people cook more than five times a week, which is a lot of kitchen time and a lot of hard work producing yummy food for the family. As a couple, when was the last time you had a meal cooked for you?
A personal chef service is a great way to bring a sense of luxury into your home, all whilst you’re able to relax in comfort. Get dressed up, set the scene, and enjoy a glass of bubbly or two whilst your own personal chef whips up a storm. To make it extra lush, you could even enjoy your lavish meal in the aforementioned blanket fort!
4. Go Art Raving Mad!
Art is known to help reduce stress and anxiety, and it can even help with the effects of chronic disease. This makes it a great idea for a healthy date night, not to mention the fact that it is a lot of fun!
The kind of art you enjoy together is up to you. Keep it traditional with a watercolor or pencil sketching tutorial, or be a little more adventurous and create abstract paintings of each other. You could even go really wild and try body painting!
5. Use Your Tongues In A Different Way…
Science tells us that new experiences are more likely to be remembered, whether they are good or bad. You can make date nights more exciting and memorable by trying lots of new things together. Get a huge range of vegan cheeses and meats and try them, writing down notes on each one. You could sample all different kinds of pre-made smoothies, scoring them from top to bottom.
It’s a great way to add some playfulness, curiosity, and sense stimulation to a date night at home without too much effort.
