Do ya’ll remember the days of endless spontaneity and freedom? When a date night was as simple as “Where are we going?” Now it requires a pre-planned evening, a babysitter and basically an act of congress to get out the door together. And yet, quality alone time is essential for any relationship and a catalyst in rekindling the flame (or in our case just a moment of uninterrupted conversation). Let us help you plan the perfect night in with some suggestions guaranteed to spark the romance. Cheers to everblooming love and these 7 Unique Ideas for Date Night at Home!
Make Home-made Pizza With Unique Toppings
Pizza is the great equalizer. And don’t be afraid to take some liberties with the toppings! Goat Cheese and pickles anyone?
Go Camping (at home)
Now there are a few ways to get this done. You can take it to the full extreme with a bonfire, roasted weenies and smores, all in the comfort of your backyard. It doesn’t get anymore romantic than a fireside dinner under the stars. OR, if that’s a bit too extra and perhaps out of the question, blow up the air mattress and have a sleepover in the living room by the fireplace. Switching things up is exciting and refreshing!
Plan a Wine Night
Go to Total Wine, splurge on some good wines and spend the evening pairing with various desserts and cheeses! Click below for Rockitmama’s quick printable guide to make your research fairly easy!
Read a Book Together and Discuss Each Chapter
The 5 Love Languages is a great place to start. Learning alongside your partner is a wonderful way to strengthen your bond. If reading isn’t quite your thing, consider a podcast or a download book on audible to listen to and examine together.
Find a Youtube Yoga Video and Wind Down Together
This is an awesome way to destress and get the blood flowing. Take the poses seriously or just practice for fun.
