Back in the day, you couldn’t get your hands and eyes off each other but as time goes on and work and the children take over, sometimes lovers turn into strangers. Then romance dies. This was a cause for worry but work kept distracting you. Then the lockdown happened! stay home romantic date ideas
The above may not be the case for you. But whatever the case, the lockdown did happen for most of us, if not all of us. Now you finally have quality time to spend with your partner.
We can all agree that being in a wonderful relationship requires conscious efforts and you don’t have to go to any fancy place to really spark up the fire with your lover. Cuddling can be just as effective as a 5-star dinner date. After all, it’s all in the heart.
Try these romantic stay-at-home ideas with your partner…
#1. Put a picnic on lockdown
This is not just super affordable but romantic if done right. Choose to be positive during this quarantine season and see it as a necessary family bonding time. You could just spread your mats, candle lights, set up dinner with a bottle of wine. This is sleeker than your average. Couples who are naturally homebodies swear by this.
#2. Play board games
Spice this stay-at-home time with exciting board games. This is beyond your regular hang-out idea. Board games stimulate your minds in the process and help you connect.
#3. Plan a cook date
If you and your partner have always wanted to cook together and try out new recipes but time didn’t allow, the time is now right!. This is one of the romantic stay-at-home things you should definitely try out. The internet carries millions of new recipes. Hopefully, that’s enough to choose from. It’s hard to get fun and intimate in one activity but this one sure comes with both.
#4. Workout together
Exercise releases feel-good hormones and a double workout is a way of motivating each other. You could both take a run around your house or try strictly indoor routines. The lockdown obviously disallows the gym so an at-home workout creates a special opportunity for you to bond while shedding a pound or two. Create a workout routine together and inspire each other to reach your targets.
#5. Karaoke night
It’s not important to be able to sing like a nightingale before playing this game. Sometimes, the croaky voice and missed lyrics are funny and refreshing to hear as you poke fun at each other’s attempt at stardom. This is one romantic stay-at-home thing you should defly try with your spouse. The laughter from this activity is usually therapeutic.
#6. Renew your vows
For the married folks, it goes without saying that getting married and staying married are two separate things. Taking time out to repeat vows that were said years ago, not only helps you two bond but gives the children (if any), an opportunity to witness you two exchange your vows.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a fresh relationship or one that’s decades old. Relationships require work and pampering to remain alive so these date ideas work for any stage. This stay home period is not only a time of reflection but also a great time to truly value what has been in front of you all this while!
