You must have frequented all the fine dining restaurants in the town and must have had numerous movie dates to spend time with your partner. A romantic date need not always be plush and luxurious in a restaurant or a club. How about planning something at home? Your home can be a perfect place for the both of you to have a romantic time together. All that you need is creativity and some preparation. Let us assume that you are aware of your partner's likes and dislikes in nearly all the aspects (if not, at least try to know his favorite food and music). If you have children, do not forget to arrange for a babysitter, in advance.
Tips to Have a Romantic Evening at Home
You can have the traditional old style date with food, music, and wine. Try an al fresco or outdoor dinner in your backyard. Wear your cocktail dress, cook his favorite food, include a variety of desserts and also some good quality wine. The surprise candle light dinner can be followed with a dance, if you both appreciate it. Those living in apartments can plan this in their balcony.
Cooking can be a great fun activity for couples. Try baking desserts or a new recipe together. It will be a lot of fun, chopping, frying, and baking together along with talking and having fun. If the dish is successful, you will really enjoy it. If not, you can always have catered food at home as an option. Here, the process is more pleasurable than the actual product!
Another idea includes having a relaxing bubble bath or giving each other a massage. Make sure you have a lot of scented oils. You can even make it more exciting by having rose petals and scented candles. This will make your evening romantic as well as a passionate one. You can try going for a swim together in the moonlight.
Cook his/your favorite dishes, uncork a bottle of wine, and watch a romantic movie or your favorite television series! Choose a movie that you both love or the one that you both watched the first time together as a couple. This is one of the easiest ways to spend time together at home, with minimal preparations. This can also be a cool rainy day activity.
Trip down the memory lane
If in a long-distance relationship, you can just spend time together talking. Create the mood of nostalgia by recalling the firsts in your relationship like your first date or first kiss. Spend time going through old photographs, reliving those wonderful moments. You can catch up with a romantic movie or a classical romantic novel. Just spend some 'us' time together.
The whole idea is to get that much-needed together time. Married couples can plan romantic dates and revive their courtship days. Try not to exaggerate things. Having a calm and peaceful time together is the keyword. Exaggeration and complication can pressurize your partner. Just allow the romance to fill the air. Do not worry whether things will work out as planned or not. They definitely will! And, if they do not, your partner will appreciate your ideas and hard work. Good luck!
