How to Plan an Unforgettable and Romantic Night In
Date nights change as your relationship progresses. When you're newly in love, everything you do together is thrilling! Once you have been together for over five years (or throw a kid into the mix), you might need a little help to make your romantic life more exciting... That's where date night steps in!
You don't have to wait until Valentine's Day or a special anniversary to do something different and special. You can do it any day of the week! The beautiful thing is that you don't have to spend a ton of money either because, surprise, you can do it at home! If you're on a budget or you can't afford to book that babysitter, don't give up just yet. Here are five (5) ways to plan an unforgettable romantic night in.
1.) Ask Your Partner on a Date
It seems so simple... But part of making a date night special is actually taking the time to make a big deal out of it. Be sure to literally ask your partner to have a special night in! Tell them that you want to stay in, but it's going to be more special than Netflix on the couch. That way, both of you can actively take part in it. Whether you are picking up your favorite wine, cooking your favorite dinner together, or taking a romantic bath, you'll both feel like you're pampering each other. Don't forget to light up one of our candles or soak in one of our bath bombs when you do!
2.) Cook a New Meal
Having a night in is the perfect time to try a new meal that you may not necessarily eat normally. If you've been eying up a fancy treat on Pinterest or Instagram, why not swing by the grocery store and pick up all the special ingredients for date night! Cooking a meal together can also be a great time to bond over learning a new skill. If one of you is a better cook than the other, it can be a chance for the other person to improve their culinary skill... Even if cooking isn't your thing, tonight's the perfect night to order food from a new restaurant that you've been dying to try!
Once you have cooked or ordered that delicious meal, instead of sitting down at the table to eat it, have a picnic in a different part of your house. Maybe it's time to utilize your beautiful, front sitting room that never gets any love! Get a nice plush blanket and soft pillows, light our cinnamon bun or hibiscus candle to set the mood, and sit down with your partner to enjoy your delicious meal. You can have deep conversations to reconnect, or simply zone out to that latest blockbuster hit that you never had time to catch in theaters.

4.) Play Games
If you want to keep the playfulness alive, then you and your partner should pick out a fun game to dive into. For the intellectuals, pick out an old favorite like Scrabble. For something a little more fun (and potentially sexy), Twister makes for a lot of laughs and romantic touching. Even video games can work wonders for a playful couple that needs to unwind!
5.) Have a Spa Night
To end the night, you and your partner can kick the romance up a few notches by pampering yourselves with some spa activities. Think about a relaxing massage with lots of aromatic essential oils, like lavender, to relax you both after a long week at work or with the kids. Then, you can slip into a luxurious bath with one of our bath bombs (we recommend Love Potion for obvious reasons... Tranquil Serenity is another excellent choice). Top it all off with a nightcap of wine.
