Setting Up Romantic Dates at Home


It is not every day that you can just leave for a romantic getaway. With personal and career demands eating up most of your time, you may have to settle for the occasional vacation that may take weeks or months to arrange. Luckily, you do not have to wait for vacations to enjoy romantic dates with your significant other. You can squeeze in some romance in your daily life regardless of how busy things may get. Here are some ideas to keep the fire burning between you and your partner.

Serve breakfast in bed. Surprise your partner with a scrumptious treat as soon as he wakes up. Prepare breakfast that you could both enjoy together. You can choose to pull out all the stops from time to time by being more creative on what will be on your breakfast-in-bed menu.

Get some workout done together. Invite your partner for an early morning walk in your neighborhood or at a nearby park. Or you can go for a run or practice some yoga at home. If you both go to the gym, arrange to go together and join some of the group classes you may have not tried before.

Go for a picnic…at night. Find a cozy place on your patio or whatever available space you have outside your home to enjoy a picnic at night. Light some candles and prepare some wine or champagne to go with the delicious meal you will share.

Cook something special. Cook a special meal with your partner. Choose something exotic or something you have not both tried before. Put some flowers on the table and some romantic music as you enjoy the dishes you prepared.

Enjoy movie nights. Pick a movie you like or would like to watch again. Cozy up with some delicious snacks. Prepare some wine or cups of hot teas or chocolates. Cuddle up as you simply enjoy the time together.

Step out and watch the stars. When was the last time you gazed at the stars? You might be surprised how pleasant it can be, especially after a stressful day. There is something inherently romantic about stargazing. Make it a habit to step out from time to time at night to simply bask in the quiet and marvel at the beauty of the stars above you.

Give each other a massage. Set up some relaxing home spa and give each other massage after. Get the items you need ahead of time to make the evening even more romantic. Choose some special oils and light some candles as soothing music play in the background. Gently massage each other and feel the stress melt away.
