It’s that time of year again – time to show your significant other just how much you adore them. While thousands of American couples will display their love for each other with a classy dinner and an expensive evening out topped off with roses and chocolates, there are still plenty of fun, exciting and romantic activities you can affordably enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Save the stressful reservations and long waits for another night. On Valentine’s Day, you and your partner can enjoy each other’s company at home with these swoon-worthy date night ideas.
Dinner and Dancing
Who needs a five-star meal to prove their love? Certainly not you two! You can whip up a gourmet dinner with your loved one at home for less than half the cost without the stress of making reservations. Cooking dinner together is not only fun, but it is also an excellent way to deepen your bond and get to know each other even more. Feel free to be creative and silly, and customize your meal to your skill level and tastes so you aren’t left biting off more than you can chew on the big night.
After a delicious dinner with a side of conversation (and perhaps a few glasses of wine), you may like to switch on some tunes and cut a rug together. If dancing isn’t your forte, don’t worry. This part of the night isn’t meant to impress your partner. Dancing provides ample opportunity for couples to enjoy close physical contact which can heat up the romance. Not a fan of the old-fashioned slow dance? Go crazy and get silly instead! Laughing at each other and yourselves boosts your mood and humility.
Flowers and romance are great and all, but sometimes the best date nights are the ones where you and your partner try to bankrupt, outsmart or otherwise defeat each other. A little friendly competition between lovers is a great way to pass the time and have fun. Whether you are partial to video games or prefer to kick back with a board game of your choice, there are numerous ways you and your partner can spend the evening. Need more players? Invite other couples over for a double-date game night with plenty of cocktails to go around.
Everyone has an inner child. Bring yours out this Valentine’s Day by having a living room movie marathon of all your favorite flicks. Be sure to stock up on enough blankets and pillows so you’re comfy and cozy, and make a quick run to the grocery store to so you can whip up concessions of your own. Consider chicken wings, puppy chow, mozzarella sticks and, of course, popcorn to fuel your late night screening.
