~ At Home Date Night Ideas!!

This post is a Valentine’s Special post especially dedicated to parents!!

Life with a baby is drastically different they said… It’s totally true, I say!!

After having a baby almost 6 months back, I would definitely agree that life with a baby is a complete 180 degree turn from life before kids.

Today’s post isn’t about comparing life before and after baby, even though that would make for a fun post (takes mental note, then writes it down also, coz who am I kidding, a new mother has a billion mental notes and she’s likely to forget them all. LOL!) anyways, I digress again… Gosh! Ok ok. Let’s continue. So today’s post is about date nights and how you can have a date night at home and keep the spark alive with your partner, even after having kids and being super busy!!

So without further ado, let’s jump in:

– Dinner and a Movie

This is a fool proof date night idea – a classic combo you really can’t go wrong with! For a couple who loves to cook, trying your hand at a new recipe is a great way to spend time together, else just order in. Pick a movie you both have been wanting to see but haven’t been able to, or choose a classic you both enjoy and grab some popcorn, cuddle and enjoy!

– Candle-Light Dinner

Turn that dinner into a candle light dinner and skip the movie for a more intimate one on one time together. For those couples who loves the outdoors and star gazing, take your candle light dinner outside to the backyard or the patio!

– Wine or Beer Tasting at Home

This one can be fun if you both are into alcohol. Pick up a variety of wines or beers from your local grocery store and have a tasting night. Pair it with your favorite food for an even better experience!

– Plan Your Next Trip

This one is a kind of a tease but useful too. Turning the night into trip planning session can get you both excited and organized for an upcoming trip, all while spending time together and my friends this is a win-win situation you ask me!!

– Go Down The Memory Lane

Dig out your old favorite photos and take a trip down memory lane, you could also relive your wedding day/festivities by watching the wedding DVDs. We do this not as often as I would like to, thanks to the fact that indian weddings have a billion functions and each are a million hours long! I know there is a pause or a fast forward button, but what’s the fun in that! When we do sit down to watch these though, it surely is be fun to look back at all of the wedding photos and videos from our big day!

– Games Night

This is one of my favorites!! We often play games over the week, once Little Miss K has been settled for the night, so in my household this isn’t a typical one time affair, rather it’s on repeat whenever we get time. Believe it or not, we always have Catan laid our on dining table because we were play a game almost everyday!! #theaddictionisreal

– Have a Fondue Dessert

For this, you can call me fancy, but I do own a fondue set and use it quite often. Not always do we have time to go to our favorite Melting Pot, so a little dessert fondue at home is just the thing to do! If you’re a chocolate loving couple, like we are (no surprise there), you can’t go wrong with fondue!

These are some of the ideas that came to my mind for this post, but trust me there are endless opportunities when it comes to spending time / making time for your partner.

After writing this post, I am soooooooo looking forward to planning our next at-home date night and I hope you are too!! So go ahead and chill, relax and enjoy each other’s company and I shall see you in my next post. Ciao!
