Stay at home! The new mantra of this decade!
Of course, staying home too often can lead to frustration, as couples fall into a routine and get tired of a mundane lifestyle. We all need some excitement don’t we?
Expert, author Maunu Seppinen, is here with some stay-at-home date ideas for couples to enjoy their time together.
1) Casino nights
No need to go to a casino, you can do that virtually now, from the comforts of your own home.
Finland in particular has seen a growing trend of online gaming, and it’s here to stay. Play baccarat, roulette, slots, or poker, and win real money!
Gambling is a state-controlled monopoly in Finland — foreign sites are forbidden from offering gambling services in Finland. Thankfully, there are many Finnish sites to play online games, such as Kassu casino. Plus, you can play in demo mode to learn all about the different games before deciding to play for real money.
2) Spa therapy
One date idea for couples is having a spa night in – no need for appointments or waiting in the queue, or even wondering how clean those towels are. Convert your own house into a spa for the night.
With multitudes of aromatic incenses and bath bombs to choose from, you’ll never run out of options. First, dim your room and bathroom lights and set the atmosphere with scented candles and coloured drapes. You can get so many exfoliators and spa products at supermarkets.
Pick your favourite flavours and indulge in them for a destressing romantic night!
3) Netflix and Chill
At the risk of sounding cliché, watching your favourite romance film together can be a quality time idea for couples at home. Before you start the film, set the mood by popping some corn or grabbing your favourite snacks. Turn down the lights and the thermostat, and cosy up in a blanket.
You can also rent a DVD from a nearby store or stream from online sites like YouTube. You’ll be sure to find something enjoyable.
4) At home date night ideas for parents
Staying at home with kids comes with a lot of responsibilities and lifestyle changes for the parents. A date night with your partner is just what you need to unwind and recharge.
Once your kids are asleep, set up your patio/lawn for a starry romantic night. You don’t even have to make new purchases as you can use your blankets or camping gear. Get a bottle of your favourite wine, and relax under the stars. Make sure you keep your electrical gadgets away so you can truly enjoy the moment.
If you wonder when is the right time for this, keep an eye out for meteor showers on a clear night. Choose the full moon, new moon, or a lovely crescent moon, as per your preference.
What a way to spend the night with your love amid nature all in your backyard!
If you share common hobbies and interests, then you will find a lot of things to do together for a date night. It could be cooking, playing card games, candlelight dinners and so on.
You can also combine several activities and get creative, as long as you enjoy doing them. For instance, you can cook a special dinner together or order from outside. After a candlelight dinner, relax and watch your favourite film or dance to music. Once you are ready for bed, indulge in an aromatic spa experience.
