Romantic things to do at home might be tricky to think up on the spot. But, once you get into a good routine, you might start to enjoy staying in. Throughout the pandemic, a lot of us were forced to have date nights at home.
1. Make dinner for each other
This is a classic idea that never gets old. There’re now plenty of companies offering hand-picked boxes that contain all the ingredients you need for a specific recipe.
Constructing one of these from scratch can be a great date and, as a bonus, you’ll get a good meal out of it too! And don’t worry, cooking dinner together can be even better — and a lot more fun — if neither of you knows how to cook!
2. Go traveling…virtually!
While traveling opportunities were limited for all of us throughout the pandemic, new technologies have helped to bring the experience to our doorstep. Post-pandemic, one of the most romantic things to do at home is to whisk your partner off on a virtual tour of an exciting foreign city.
Wherever you choose to go, this date idea is a great way to break the ice, spark conversation, laugh together, and get to know each other better!
3. Watch a newly released movie
This option is becoming more and more popular, and some streaming services are even offering brand new releases as a perk of your subscription. While there’s nothing like a movie theater (and the accompanying popcorn!) it’s still quite romantic to check out a movie on opening day from the comfort of your couch.
Even better, in your private home theater, you and your partner don’t have to worry about pausing the movie for breaks or discussing the film while it’s still playing. Who knew that one of the most romantic things to do at home would be to create your own home theater experience?
