at home date night ideasThe ubiquitous date night should be a part of every relationship. By picking and choosing a night at regular intervals and setting aside time for you and your partner to spend time and connect, you can ensure a deep healthy relationship. 

Date night leads to better communication, greater affection, and love for one another, as well as a desire to spend even more time with one another. You will be investing in a long-lasting relationship by eliminating distractions and pouring your focus into one another. 

Short on cash or not feeling like going out this winter? Coming up with unique ways to spend time together at home is a great way to plan your next date night. Here are a few at-home date night ideas that we know you and your partner will love!

Four Date Night Ideas at Home

1. Have a Cooking Competition

If you and your partner are fans of cooking competition shows such as Chopped, then maybe it is time to stop watching and test your skills against one another. Pick a handful of ingredients that you already have sitting around in your pantry or fridge, set a time limit, and get to work. Add in a bottle of wine, and you have got yourself a great time indoors!

2. Food and Wine Pairing Night

Common theme? We know! In our opinion, spending time with your significant other over a glass of wine and a well-prepared meal is always going to be a good time. If you are looking for a way to explore wonderful wines, look no further than putting together a wine-tasting and food pairing. 

If you need a bit of help on where to start, look no further than our guide, “Food and Wine Pairing Tips.” We also have a great resource on the common wine descriptors used when picking out wines with our “Wine Cheat Sheet.”

3. Themed Movie Night!

Pick a movie, new or old, that you both have seen, make some popcorn, and turn down the lights! Picking comedies and less serious horror films is great for this setting. Make sure to decide on a film before you get settled in so that you can spend more time enjoying each other's company, and snacking on classic movie theater goodies.

4. Game Night

If you are a couple that enjoys a bit of friendly competition, game night is always a win. Pick a few of your favorite games and get to playing! If you need inspiration, Uno, Scrabble, Boggle, or your favorite tabletop game all work.
