Romantic Ideas For Dates Indoors
Serve breakfast in bed. One of the most romantic ways to start the day is breakfast in bed. Prepare a tray with fresh squeezed juice, seasonal fruits and breakfast pastries. Decorate it with a small vase of fresh cut flowers.
Stage a movie night. Pick a movie you’ve both enjoyed in the past or pick something new you’ve been waiting to see together. Make a bowl of popcorn more elegant by adding some olive oil and rosemary or some candy drizzle. Curl up under a soft cashmere throw. These extra touches make it feel more special than just the usual movie together:)
Give each other a couple’s massage. Invest in a massage table or use your bed. Use some scented oils and wear plush robes. If you want to learn some new techniques, check out Youtube.

Romantic Ideas for Dates Outdoors
Throw a pool party. Lounge side by side in matching chaises with tropical drinks. If you don’t have an in-ground pool, you can still have a party. Drink your margaritas while you cool your feet in a small inflatable pool.
Go camping. Pitch a tent in your backyard and break out your sleeping bags. You can tell each other ghost stories or even try and recall your first date memories! Bring out some mugs of hot cocoa topped with gourmet marshmallows in fun flavors.
Share a picnic. Spread a blanket and lie out in the sun. Make your own roast chicken and potato salad or visit your local market for prepared dishes if you don’t wanna cook. If you don’t have a backyard, use your balcony.
Play games. Play a fun game of lawn tennis or giant jenga together!
Promise each other forever with a rose garden. Who doesn’t love roses?
Start a rose garden together that you can watch grow in the years ahead. It’s surprisingly easy even for inexperienced gardeners. If I can do it, you can do it;) Prepare the soil a few days in advance to get the messy steps out the way, unless you want to get a little dirty on your date! Then you can enjoy planting your flowers together and watering them daily during the important first weeks.
Stay home, stay safe and stay happy in love with these fun and exciting date night ideas at home!
