Stay Home and Enjoy These
Romantic Evening Ideas

  • Order-in with class:
    Instead of ordering in your usual pizza or Thai take-away - source a classy restaurant that delivers and splash out on a full meal and a bottle of good wine.

    Set a table with your best china and glass and add flowers and candles to create a romantic dinner setting.

    Dress in each others favorite outfits. Lower the lights, put on soft music and have a relaxed meal and a few glasses of wine - without having to worry about driving home!
  • Play a board game: If you type "Romantic Board Games", into your search engine, lots of options will come up from the restrained to the frankly, sexy. What you choose is up to you!

    They can be a lot of fun to experiment with and play as you lounge about on the floor or set them up on the bed. Have a look at this fun Romantic Rendevous game.

  • Create the mood with movies:
    Rent or download some favorite movies to watch. They don't have to have a romantic theme, just be movies you will both enjoy. Buy some favorite chocolates to share, as you cuddle up on the sofa to watch.

  • Picnic in the garden:
    Weather permitting, have a picnic in the back yard. Lay a lovely cloth, light some sheltered candles and enjoy a picnic meal. Here you'll find some more Romantic Picnic Ideas as well as picnic food ideas.

  • Have a champagne bath party:
    Fill up the bath using some wonderfully smelling bath bubbles. Put some little snacks on a plate, crack a bottle of champagne and play tootsies (or whatever) as you sip, nibble and share your thoughts.

  • Review those honeymoon or holiday photos:
    Sitting together with a glass of wine and reliving those wonderful times either in an album or on your computer can be a really great togetherness experience.
