With three kids and two fur children plus a guinea pig, there’s often more time to create a romantic date at home rather than a romantic date out somewhere. Sure, as co-parents, we do get four days a month without any children in the home but the rest of the time at least one or two children are around. We both work from our home office together running our membership websites as well as doing our own side freelance work. With two adults being stuck in the home every day of the month except four days, there comes the need to create your own romantic date at home ideas.
3 Perfect Romantic Date at Home Ideas
Craft It Up
I recall one day my other half went and bought some supplies. I had no idea what he was up to but the supplies included candles, glitter, glass goblets, pinecones and hot glue to name a few items I recall. He would not tell me what this was all about. All he did was create a place at our dining room table with all of these crafty supplies and instructed me on how to take each step. The project was a homemade snow globe — snow globes are my favorite. This was a great way to do something we both love, being creative, together and in turn I say it’s the perfect romantic date at home idea for the crafty couples.
Enjoy a Special Movie
Perhaps there’s a move on Netflix or On Demand that you really wanted to watch. Pick a night and sit down together, after the children are asleep of course. Spend a little money on renting a movie and enjoying a little theater action in your own living room. Keep the lights low, make some popcorn and put those cell phones away. This is an easy to create romantic date night at home event, and it’s even more romantic when you can snuggle up together to watch the movie.
Candle Light Dinner for Two
This is surely one of the easiest ways to enjoy a romantic date at home. After the children have been taken care of and are off to bed, consider create a romantic meal for two. Gather up a couple of candles, put a cute tablecloth over the dining room table and feast upon a meal that your partner loves. Remember to make something that they really enjoy eating, perhaps a little more expensive meal at home on this special evening. Add some final touches to make it the most romantic date night in ever, and watch the sparks fly between you two.
There are many fun ways you can get creative with romantic date at home ideas. It won’t cost you any major cash and it can easily happen once the children are fast asleep. The key to a happy relationship that lasts long term is to ensure both of you are doing little things to spark that interest and keep the bond going strong.
