It’s the month of love and it’s getting us thinking all about romantic at home date night ideas. While it’s fun to go out with your significant other, sometimes there’s nothing better than spending a cozy night at home. You don’t have to brave the cold temperatures and bad weather, and you can lounge in your comfy clothes and enjoy some quality one-on-one time together. If you’ve been craving a night in, take a look at these romantic at home date night ideas!
11 Cozy and Romantic At Home Date Night Ideas
1. Take An Online Cooking Class
Cooking together has to be one of the most romantic things you can do for an at home date night activity! There are tons of live online cooking classes to choose from. Sign up for a meal you want to make, shop for the ingredients, and spend the night creating your from-scratch dish! Whether you go Italian, Thai, African, or Middle Eastern, you’ll have so much fun cooking together and of course, can enjoy your delicious culinary masterpiece at the end!
2. Make a Fancy Cocktail
Are you and your partner cocktail connoisseurs? Even if you’re not, this is a fun little date night idea. Stock up on ingredients for fancy cocktails you’ve never tried before and take turns making a drink you know your partner will love. Make sure you have all the right tools (shaker, muddler, jigger, frother) and don’t be afraid to get experimental!
3. Do a Paint and Sip
Feel like getting your creative juices flowing? Pick up some paint supplies and set up a little paint party for two on your dining room table. Pour a glass of your favourite beverage and choose something to paint. It could be a still life from your own home, inspired by a photo from your travels, or abstract flower motifs. If you’re happy with the end results, you can even put them up somewhere in your home!
4. Make Your Own Pizzas
Feeling a little friendly competition? Make your own pizzas and see which one comes out on top! You can each shop for your own ingredients to keep your toppings a secret. Buy or make your own dough and have fun together letting your culinary creativity run wild. Pop them in the oven, and in the end, you’ll have two delicious pizzas to indulge in. Light some candles, pour some wine, and vote on your winning pizza!
5. Set Up a Living Room Picnic
Set up a cute picnic in your living room for the ultimate at home date night. Set the scene with a giant blanket, flowers, and some throw pillows to cushion your body. Put together a charcuterie board filled with meats, cheeses, olives, spreads, grapes, figs, and crackers, as well as other picnic-friendly foods. Pour some wine and don’t forget to end off with a little sweetness. Pick up dessert from your favourite bakery, or whip up a simple dessert if you love to bake!
6. Have a Spa Night
Craving a relaxing spa night? Why not do one right at home? Pop on a couple face masks, indulge in yummy snacks, and give each other a relaxing body, hand, or foot massage. Even just 15 minutes can be super soothing. If you have a bathtub, you can take your spa night to the tub with candles, romantic music, and a luxurious lavender vanilla bubble bath.
7. Plan a Game Name
An unplugged game night is a great way to connect and enjoy each other’s company away from screens. From Chess, to Scrabble, to Catan, shake up your routine with a night of board games. Consider throwing some card games in as well, or a two-player game like ‘We’re Not Really Strangers, Couples Edition”.
8. Make Homemade Sushi
Are you and your significant other sushi lovers? Instead of going out for sushi, learn to make it at home together. Look up a few recipes for your favourite rolls online and make sure you have all the ingredients and tools, including a sushi-making kit. Whether you love spicy salmon rolls, dynamite rolls, or California rolls, making homemade sushi is the way to go!
9. At-Home Wine and Chip Tasting
Splurge on a few nice bottles of wine and some potato chips, and hold a little wine and chip tasting for the two of you. Salty snacks go perfectly with wine, and chips take the cake. Chips and wine are an incredible combination, and it’s fun to see how certain flavours complement each other. Think: classic potato chips with champagne or Prosecco, barbecue chips with merlot, sour cream and onion chips with a French chardonnay, and salt and vinegar chips with a dry rosé.
10. Have a RomCom Marathon
If you’re craving the ultimate cozy night in, cuddle up on the sofa and binge your favourite romcoms. Order a pizza, stock up on your favourite snacks, and sip on your go-to cocktail or mocktail. Sometimes all we need is to watch our favourite on-screen love stories with our real life love by our side.
11. Do a Virtual Double Date
Do you have any long distance couple friends? Plan a virtual double date to catch up with them! You can each order takeout from your favourite place, dress nice and cozy, and do a virtual cheers with your beverage of choice. Spending time with other couples can be healthy for your own relationship, plus you’ll get a fun night with friends you don’t see often.
