Back in the day, you both couldn’t take your hands and eyes off each other but as time went on, work and the children took over. Now, you can barely remember when last you did something special for one another. Sometimes, lovers turn into strangers, and then, romance dies. Luckily, this wouldn’t be you as you’re here reading this piece on stay home romantic date ideas.
While the pandemic served as an unwelcome distraction that kept us stuck at home, the “outside doors” have finally flung open and daily activities have once again reached a fever high. From endless meetings to school runs, business travels and everything else in general, life sure has a way of stealing our attention. The sad news is, the longer this goes unchecked, the higher the chances that you and your one-time-soul-mate would only drift apart. That’s why you need to get crafty with date ideas you and your partner can enjoy even while at home on a weekend.
Why weekend? Clearly because in most instances, the noise of a full-time job is hushed over the weekends and that’s a great time for you both to enjoy your company once again. While a fancy date is welcome, you don’t necessarily need that to once again spark the fire with your lover. Let’s face it, cuddling can be just as effective as a 5-star dinner date. After all, it’s all in the heart! Here are our tried and trusted stay home romantic date ideas you and your partner would certainly enjoy.
Try these romantic stay-at-home ideas with your partner…
#1. Put a picnic on lockdown
This is not only super affordable but also romantic if done right. Now’s a great opportunity to enjoy that intimate candlelit dinner you’ve been longing for. The best part? You have full control over everything — scented candles, food, music, etc. All you have to do is simply spread your mats, order (or cook) your favorite meal, light the candles and grab a bottle of wine. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about the music. It really has a way of setting the tone.
#2. Play board games
Spice up your weekend with exciting board games that will keep you both entertained, engaged, and also challenged. The game of choice is completely up to you both based on what you enjoy playing. It can be anything from cards to chess, monopoly to puzzles and if you want to get kinky, why not try some crafty sex games?
#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 indoor routines. Otherwise, taking a run or jog around your neighborhood will also suffice, and it’s perfect if you like longer, more intense activities. Plus, 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 definitely 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 weekend can be one of the most amazing things to happen to your relationship, so don’t wait until another Monday takes it away.
