Having a date night at home can be a fantastic idea no matter if you are in the early stages of your relationship or if you have been living together for years. It is a lot more intimate and more comfortable than going out, plus you can make huge savings by staying at home too! Much like any date, it is vital that you put some thought into it so that it will be a valuable, memorable and fun night for both of you. If you have a date night lined up but you have decided to stay in, read on for some helpful advice.


– What To Wear


It can be tricky to know what to wear as you will want to look nice for your date but there is no need to dress up as if you are visiting a fancy restaurant. Ultimately, you should choose something that you feel confident in so that you can enjoy yourself and feel comfortable and happy. The great thing about date nights at home is that you can quickly change into something else if you end up curling up in front of the TV.


– Food


Having a date night at home is a great way to show off your culinary skills, but you do not have to be a master chef to impress as there are many easy to follow recipes for tantalizing dishes. One particularly useful option is sweet and sticky tofu which is bursting with flavor and a dish which both looks and tastes good but is easy to cook. Don’t forget to pair your meal with a nice bottle of wine or drink of your choice.


– Entertainment


You can simply enjoy each other’s company over a good meal, candlelight and bottle of wine, but you may want to pick an appropriate album or playlist to play during the meal and think of a few topics of conversation in case you run out of things to say. Aside from this, there are many excellent entertainment and activities that you could do together. A few good options include:


  • Playing a board or card game
  • Listen to music
  • Watch a film/binge on a TV series
  • Go for a walk
  • Ask each other questions
  • Make cocktails


– Things To Remember


There are a few essential points to remember with this type of date as it is quite different from any kind of date night where you are out.


  • Remember that you are on a date so do not ignore your partner and act as you would on an average night in
  • If they do not live with you, then remember that they do not have to stay over if you do not want them to
  • Make sure that there will be no distractions or visitors that come over during your date


Having a date night in can be a great way to spend quality time with your partner, but this is also a unique type of date and one which will require a fair amount of planning with the above being the main areas to consider.
