The stress of planning the perfect date night for Valentine's Day is real. You want everything to be perfect to impress your significant other and make them feel special. But what if we told you that there are simpler ways to plan a date night in the comforts of your home? Plan an off-beat date night at home with your significant other while the rest of the world spends money on grand gestures. Game nights to cook-offs, spin things around for Valentine's Day 2023 date night at home.
1. Movie Night
Dim the lights and get cosy on the couch in your favourite PJ sets and watch your favourite movies together. Pick from classics to new releases that you both have been dying to catch up on don't forget popcorn and pizza to go with it.
2. An Indoor Picnic
While a picnic seems like an outdoor activity, we can't see why we can't take this indoors as well. Create a canopy decked with snug cushions, rugs, lights and candles to enjoy this special moment with each other. Pop a bottle of champagne or pair your favourite wine with picnic snacks in a basket that will bring you closer to your partner.
3. Breakfast In Bed
Who said you can't start your day with a date too? What better way to begin your day than with this lovely gesture? A date where you don't have to get up from bed.
4. Cooking Together
Couples who cook together, stay happy forever. While ordering in or getting a take-out is always an option, cooking a special meal for two with your partner can be more romantic and fun. Some light music and random kitchen dancing will just add up to your night unless you are the adventurous kind and plan a cook-off to make things exciting.
5. Enjoy A Chocolate Fondue For Two
Saying no to chocolate fondue is the ultimate sin that we wouldn't dare to commit. Chocolate-covered fruits, crackers and marshmallows are the sweetest way to begin your date other than with a kiss, of course.
6. Organise A Game Night
When was the last time you played a board game? We hope not too long ago. Get competitive (in a good way) and pick some of your favourite board games for a fun night in. An old-fashioned jigsaw puzzle, a Jenga match, or a card game, let these be the only games you have to play.
