Date Night: At Home Ideas


You know when you simply just want to snuggle in bed and stay at home? Yeah, that's pretty much been us since we've come back from holiday. Don't get me wrong, we still go out and to be honest, all our weekends for the rest of this year are all booked up. But once during the week, after work, we usually plan to go out for Date Night and we love it, but sometimes, you just want to stay at home, you know?

We had a stay at home Date Night planned for this week, but we felt just staying at home and simply watching The Apprentice is what we wanted to do. So instead of telling you what happened in The Apprentice, which I'm sure you'd already know anyway, we wanted to share with you, some of our 'At Home Date Night' ideas.

1. Homemade Candle Lit Dinner

I know it sounds super cliche, but honestly, it's not the eating and sitting down I'm talking about, we're more about the cooking together part. It's actually so much fun and complete bonding time. It's about making the mess and having a laugh, with the outcome of a romantic dinner.

2. Netflix/Movie Marathon


This one is easy, how could you go wrong with binge watching your favourite TV shows or series of movies. Or maybe this could be the chance to watch what your other half wants to see, watch The Notebook or The Hobit or simply re-watch How I Met Your Mother from the beginning - whatever floast your boat, with some candles, one blanket and unlimited popcorn, you are set!

3. Be Creative


Play some muics in the background or some YouTube videos on a playlist, get your creative juices flowing - paint each other a painting, on a canvas, a mug, anything! If not painting, try some baking - again, same like cooking, it's more of doing it together than eating it - decorate it as you like and have fun with it, it's not the Great British Bake Off.

4. Pampering

Create your own spa at home, throw on our fluffy robes and slippers. Light some scented candles around the room and bathroom, run each other a bath or have one together ;) and if it's not already a regular thing, give each other a back massage, that's always a treat! Oh and face masks, who said they were only for ladies and hey, it's only you two, so why not - go all out!

5. Go Old School

Get out those dusty old board/card games and do it like the good old days. Monopoly, UNO, Jenga, you name it! Pretty self explanatory this one and to top it all off, the 90's music, all the good stuff!

Hope all you lovelies enjoyed this little post. Let us know what are your musts dos for an evening in?

  9. I love "at home" date nights and there's some great ideas here! Some of our favourites are definitely pamper nights (bath/facial) or even just cooking together!
