If you are one of those couples that don’t particularly love going outside for their date nights and need new ideas on what to do inside, then you have come to the right place! Date nights that you can pull off at home are intimate, charming, and all-around exciting and fun to put together. Just because you aren’t going out to a fancy dinner doesn’t mean that your date night isn’t as authentic and romantic. If you happen to be looking for cute dates ideas you can pull off at home, then here a few to get you going!
Picnic In Your Living Room
This date idea will truly make your loved one awe at your creativity and passion. And the best part about this idea is that barely any money needs to be spent to pull off this cute date. All you will need is a picnic blanket, some candles, and all the food you know your significant other will enjoy. Whether you cook and bake it, or just pick it up at the grocery store, just going out of your way to set it all up and do something different from your usual routine will make all the difference in this date idea.
Gaze At The Stars From Your Backyard
This is one of the few cute date ideas that you can accomplish with just a blanket and some binoculars, if even that. All you really need for a romantic night at home with your significant other is each other, so taking a couple steps into the backyard to gaze and wish upon the stars is simply adorable and a great way to spend some quality time together. Going out of your way to make some sort of dinner that you can feast on outside as well is also an adorable idea that will definitely make the night that much more special and romantic.
If you love board games, then this cute date idea is just for you. Go ahead and get out the monopoly, boggle, scrabble, and even twister. Cards games also fall in that category if you happen to know a thing or two about what card games exist. Teaching your partner a new game is a fun way to spend time together. But make sure not to let each other’s competitiveness get in the way of having a good time. While being a little competitive is fine, it isn’t healthy to hold grudges afterwards. Remember, it is just a game.
For this cute date idea, plan a night where you watch all of the movies you have put off watching. Turn off the lights, get some popcorn and red vines, and hunker down on the couch. And the best part about a movie night at home? It’s completely free! That, and no screaming kids or people playing around on their phones, ultimately ruining your movie watching experience. While it can be fun to go out and watch a new movie, it is equally as fun to strip down into your PJs and being comfortable as you immerse yourself in that movie you’ve just been dying to watch since you it came on Netflix.
If you have a fireplace, then take advantage of it to execute this cute date idea by roasting some marshmallows and making some s’mores to share with each other. Even if you don’t have a fireplace, pulling a seat in front of the oven is also a cute date idea that will never fail to go wrong. Roasting marshmallows is such a great way to spend some quality time together and enjoy a nice sweet snack at the same time. While this idea is simple, as long as it varies from your everyday life at home, it will sure to be romantic and sweet.
Another great cute date idea is giving each other a questionnaire! And no, don’t mistake that for an interrogation. Simply get comfortable and ask each other those questions that are always in the back of your mind but you never had the courage to ask. If you can’t think of any, there are plenty of question games for couples that will be sure to do the trick and bring you both closer together. The game “Truth or Drink” is probably my favorite game out there that gets down to it and asks some questions you would never have even thought of, but are glad came up and got answered.
For all of you out there that love puzzles, you’ll know they can take forever. That’s why for this cute date idea, try and do a puzzle together! Doing puzzles together is a fun way to spend time together, as well as feel as if you are being productive. Finishing a puzzle is super rewarding, so getting to share that feeling with your significant other is such a great way to bond.
If you have a bathtub big enough for two, use the night to get into it and spend all the time in the world together. This cute date idea is so romantic and intimate that it will make you never want to leave the bath again. This idea is simple, but super cute, especially if you dim the light and go and get some candles to set around the tub.
