What’s your idea of the ultimate ‘dream date’? Whether it’s treating a special someone to dinner at the trendiest restaurant in town, or getting front row tickets to the most sought-after music concert, sometimes an intimate night at home is exactly what’s needed to keep the romance alive.
Dr. Oetker, who recently launched a delectable chocolate pizza ideal for sharing with your partner or friends shares some fun ideas that are bound to impress your date the next time you’re planning date-night.
Create an at-home relaxation experience for two
Create a soothing, indulgent experience for two in the comfort of your own home by drawing a bubble bath with essential oils and light a few candles with tranquil music playing in the background to set the mood. Put on your favourite series and binge-watch until the sun comes up.
Celebrate a romantic night in
Swop a night out on the town for a chilled night in. Cooking together is also a fun activity for date night. If you and your significant other are not master chefs, head to the shops and grab an easy to make treat – and don’t forget dessert!
Dinner and a movie under the stars
A pile of blankets, lots of cushions and a clear, starry night are all you need for this date night idea. Pop a ready-made pizza or two in the oven, pack a picnic basket filled with your favourite beverage, and head to the garden or even the rooftop for a romantic night under the stars. If you don’t have a projector, play a movie on your laptop for your own personal outdoor cinematic experience.
Swop hobbies for a day
Spend a day getting to know one another by experiencing each other’s favourite pastimes. Try your hand at playing your partner’s favourite video game, go on a craft course like candle-making, do a puzzle or watch a sporting match together – the options are endless, and the best part is that you can spread these activities over a few dates.
Take a hike
Time alone together doesn’t just mean time at home. For couples who enjoy the outdoors and spending time in nature, going on a hiking or biking trail is a fun and inexpensive way to spend time together. You can find some great trails online that vary in difficulty, so you can keep it to a leisurely stroll or up the ante and work up a sweat. Remember to keep hydrated and pack lots of sunscreen.
So, the next time you’re planning date night, keep these memorable and fun ideas and unique experiences in mind.
