Sometimes the most romantic date is one that you spend at home. This is particularly true in the colder months when braving the outdoors isn’t something that you feel like doing. The trick to making a night at home special is planning. That’s why we’ve put together these ideas for a romantic night:
1. Plan a special meal: A date night meal doesn’t have to be fancy, but it should be something that you both enjoy eating. Having a meal delivered is one option, although you might enjoy going through your favorite recipes and picking out something to cook for the two of you. Set a table with your favorite tablecloth, stemware, and dishes and you won’t miss being in a restaurant.
2. Choose a warm, beautiful outfit: since you’re going to be staying at home, you won’t have to bundle up. A soft sweater and a long skirt will set the mood and keep you comfortable. Finish your ensemble with a bit of jewelry and embellished flats.
3. Build a fire: If you have a fireplace, date night is the perfect time to start a fire. No fireplace? Try lighting some candles to create a romantic glow.
4. Scent the room: Both scented candles and aromatherapy diffusers can create a romantic mood when you choose warm, spicy scents.
One of the nice things about winter cold is that it brings people closer together.
