Today's Valentine's Day post is perfect for my procrastinators and introverts. I've compiled a list of date night ideas you can do from the comfort of your own home. Check it out below:
1. Skill Share
Why not share something you're passionate about with the one you love? Whether it be photography, playing an instrument, or culinary gifts, the level of intimacy between teacher and student is undeniable.
2. Win Me Over
This one is a ton of fun. Especially if you love to argue a point. Prior to date night, you will select a series of topics (keep it playful). Consider subjects like, most dynamic R&B group of the 90s, best Leonardo DiCaprio movie, or the ultimate after school snack. Then, craft your argument for each topic (visual aids are encouraged). Not only do you get insight into the way your partner thinks, but, you will also, learn random, useless, trivia facts👍🏾. So, cater the topics to suit your personalities (get as spicy as you'd like) and I promise you will be thoroughly entertained.
3. Blindfolded Tasting
Are you a foodie? Can you taste the subtle notes of despair, when you've reached the bottom of your French fries? Then, you'll love this one. Get a pair of blindfolds, or use a necktie or pantyhose (a la Christian Grey). Then, prepare an assortment of foods to feed your partner. Be sure to incorporate different flavors and textures. Also, think up interesting ways to serve each item, make sure the kids aren't home😉.
This one's pretty straight forward. It's just food, and, well, the floor. Incorporate mood lighting, music, or even a movie. Make it as romantic or as raunchy as you please. Seriously, you can't mess it up. There's a reason why it's a classic.
5. Renos & Romance
This one is perfect for couples that live together. If you're good with your hands, or fancy a design challenge, try taking on a small renovation together. Create a feature wall in the family room, or reupholster that side chair in the den. Just make sure it's a project you'll work well together on (please, no power tools if you will be drinking)!
6. Paint and Portraits
Nothing says love, like immortalization. Remember that one scene in Titanic? So, break out the canvas and paint or sketchpad and get a glimpse of yourself through your partner's eyes. For some added fun, try using body paint and let your partner be the canvas (FYI this can get a bit messy).
7. Recreate The Date
A date so nice, you'd make it twice. Choose a memorable date as inspiration ( it doesn't have to be the first) and recreate a few key moments. You can get really creative, since it'll take place at home. Make the night extra special by incorporating mementos from the original date.
I hope you've found a date idea to suit you and your significant other. Remember to be creative, thoughtful and have fun! Happy Valentine's Day.
Until next time,
