Dates are a great way to bond and create memories with your loved one, but sometimes it may not be viable to go on a date. As it stands, some people wish to cut down on their expenses, so date nights may not be as frequent. On the other hand, some people wish to limit their exposure to other people due to the pandemic, while other people are simply just homebodies. Whatever category you fall in, you can still spend quality time and plan fun date nights for you and your partner indoors.
Have a look at the 5 home date night ideas below:
1. Cook a romantic candle-lit dinner
A great idea for an inexpensive date night is cooking dinner with your significant other. If you choose to cook it alone, you can surprise your lover with their favourite meal. All you have to do is buy the ingredients, prepare the food, set out the table and light a few candles to set the ambience.
2. Host a paint and sip date
This one is for the creatives. Unleash your inner Picasso with a paint and sip date. The supplies you’ll need include two canvases, paint, paintbrushes and a drink of your choice. You can play music in the background as you paint and sip to your heart’s content.
3. Belt out your love with a karaoke night
A karaoke night is a great way to spend quality time with your partner. You can create an instrumental collection of your favourite songs and buy a Bluetooth microphone online that you can connect to your sound system.
It’ll be fun to see who can perfect the songs. To add an extra element of fun and excitement, let the winner receive a gift of their choice.
4. Netflix and chill
Hosting a movie marathon with your significant other is a date night idea you should consider. Just make sure you have the popcorn, drinks and other snacks ready, and enjoy an evening of laughter or suspense — depending on the movie genres you’ll be watching.
5. Do a DIY project together
If you’re both into art and crafts, consider building something together. Perhaps you’ve always wanted a huge vanity mirror in your bedroom… why not build that? Or, you can build a coffee table, create coasters, a frame, a headboard, or any other item you’d like to have in your home.
For a fun, memorable, and inexpensive date night with your significant other, consider any one of the ideas above.
