How to Have a Romantic Date Night at Home
At one time people often had date nights on weekly basis. However, due to married life, and their budgets, date nights occur very rarely, if at all. Many couples choose to have a romantic date night at home, to avoid the high cost of babysitters, as well as being able to feel secure knowing that they are home with their children. Here are some date night ideas for a romantic dinner at home and on the road.
Date Night Ideas
1. Dinner and a Movie– For a romantic dinner at home, you can rent a movie and plan a great dinner. An idea would be to choose a movie with an ethnic theme and base your dinner on that. If you happen to be watching a movie with Chinese characters, make Chinese food, and if you are watching a movie with Italian characters, make pizza or a pasta dish.
2. Plan a Romantic Brunch– You can plan on a romantic brunch with flowers, chocolates, appetizers, and music. There are many different themes that you could come up with that will spur your creativeness.
3. Plan a Romantic Road Trip– Choose a place that you think will be exciting for the both of you. Pack up some lunch, snacks, and take the bikes. You will make many stops along the way, and that is part of the fun, the spontaneous adventures.
4. Watch a Sports Game on TV– Plan to watch a sports game on TV. Plan your menu around things normally associated with food items that are sold at sporting venues. Hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, and beer are perfect choices.
These are just a few ideas that you can implement for a romantic date at home. It is a cheaper form of entertainment that will bring the sparkle back into your life. So start planning your next romantic date at home, after the kids have gone to bed.
