How deep is your love? Whatever stage your relationship is in, it's about to get a whole lot deeper. If the pandemic has taught us anything about relationships, we should make moments with our loved ones count.
You don't need to go to a secret location that will cost you hundreds of Rands – you can create special memories in the comfort of your home. If your relationship has lagged over the last few months, don't worry – we're about to freshen it up with these creative date night ideas:
1. Go Camping
If you’re the adventurous type or are looking for ways to add more adventure to your life, head on over to your backyard, set up a tent and add some fairy lights for that extra touch of magic. Yes, camping can be romantic! And if the weather gets a bit chilly, create a campfire, toast some marshmallows and share stories. It’s the perfect way to get to know each other even better and plan for the future.
2. Indulge in a Spa Day
De-stress with an at-home spa day. Take turns giving each other massages, run a bubble bath, put on your face masks (not the surgical ones) and feel the stresses of the day release themselves from your body. After all, there’s nothing better than a spa day with your best friend!
3. Have a Cook-off
A little bit of competition is never a bad thing. Prepare each other’s favourite meals within a specified time and create a prize for the most creative dish. The winner gets to decide which movie you will watch and a free back massage from yours truly. Create a romantic ambience during supper by turning down the lights, lighting a few candles and playing love songs in the background. After eating, be sure to freshen your breath by chewing on a breath mint or by brushing your teeth for that “thank you” kiss.
4. Host a Game Night
Who better to play games with than your significant other? Play a Twister game, board games or make it fun with “would you rather” or “truth or dare”. The laughs will be endless!
5. Exercise Together
What better way to bond than by sweating it out? Reach your fitness goals together by doing a fun cardio or dance workout at home. Exercise releases endorphins, so you'll get the warm fuzzies for your significant other as you do that jumping jack.
A couple that has date nights together stays together! Keep the spark alive in your relationship with these fun date night ideas.
