Escape from the Ordinary: Creative Ideas for a Romantic Date Night at Home

Who says that romance should be ‘dead’ after several years in a relationship or marriage?! It’s up to you whether the spark will be still alive or not, and truth be told, maintaining it is not that hard. All you have to do is to pamper each other with presents from time to time, and never skip on dates.

Romantic Date Night at Home

Going on a date night at least once a month will only reinforce your relationship and the love you have for each other. So, even if you can’t go out for some reason or another, there are some super creative and easy achievable ideas that can help you have an even better romantic night at home. All you have to do is to get creative, take advantage of some home and lifestyle products and spend quality time with your loved one.

Go Stargazing

There’s no better time to watch the stars than during summer. There’s something magical about summer nights, so why don’t you take advantage of them?! All it takes is for you to grab a telescope, a bottle of wine with two glasses and your loved one of course. Quite affordable and easy to set up, these amazing home and lifestyle products can be used by the whole family as well. Can you imagine the fun you’ll have with your children exploring the stars and moon while bonding even more?! It’s memories like this we need to create for our little ones, memories that will be carried in their minds and hearts forever.


Going back to date night, without breaking the bank or leaving your home, you’ll be able to have the most romantic date night with your woman while gazing at the stars while having love and life conversations together. To make things more romantic, you can add a few glass candle holders around you and hang some on a tree (if any). This will make your date night even more romantic and special. Since you’ll be sitting on the ground, you can first lay down a yoga mat and then a blanket over it. This will add padding to it and make you more comfortable, especially if sitting and laying for hours.

Have Dinner Outdoors

Besides going outdoors to have dinner, you can have your very own special dinner night under the stars at home. You can have even more fun doing it at home since you’ll have the opportunity to create your very own romantic dinner scene. To spice up things you can fill the area with candles, paper lanterns, a personalised dinner menu and lots of love. To set the mood, you can place the good tablecloth, take out the good dishes and add a bouquet of fresh flowers.

Soft background music is a must and this can be easily achieved by playing music through a Bluetooth speaker. Regarding the menu, plan it ahead and find some fancy and easy dinner and dessert recipes. Your loved one will surely be fascinated by all the effort and for that, she will love you even more.

Note: Don’t worry about the aforementioned decorative home products. While a great amount of them you can find in your home, the other part you can order online from any well-stocked store without your wife knowing. Some things are meant to be secret, right?! (at least for some time).

A Relaxing Spa Night

Having a spa night at home is possible, especially when you’re planning to have one with your better half. The feeling of relaxation will be doubled even by the simple thought of soaking up in the bathtub with your loved one. To reap the benefits of this night and make it look like a real spa night, you can invest in an essential oil relaxing blend that can help you unwind and relax. Truth be told, there are lots of blends from which you could choose, but make sure the chosen one meets your wife’s personal taste in flavour.

No matter how exciting this sounds, the truth is that all of your efforts could go in vain if you’ve chosen the wrong smell. You can either choose one of the readymade essential oil relaxing blend sets or you can create your very own blend by investing in separate essential oils. If you’re new to this, you should know that some of the leading essential oils in evoking a feeling of relaxation are lavender, clary sage, ylang-ylang, bergamot and cedarwood. Of course, there are many other blends from which you could choose, but the idea is to choose the perfect smell combination.

Now, once you have the oils, you can either add a few drops of them in the bathtub, so both of you could soak up in them while feeling their amazing flavour calming your senses, or, you could add a few drops of them to an aromatherapy diffuser. Don’t forget to add strawberries, chocolate dip and wine next to the bathtub to spice up things even more. You can ‘finish’ the spa night with a relaxing massage for which you could use a few drops of the same essential oil mixed with any type of carrier oil like coconut, almond, jojoba, or any other oil you have at home.

Have a Movie Night

If both of you are too tired to do something fancy, you can simply enjoy each other’s company and watch a movie together. For this date night, all you need is snacks, drinks and a good movie that both of you love. This might be simple but surely is a good date night, especially for parents who have little children and are too exhausted for doing anything else.
