How To Bring Romance Home
If we take a look back about a year, we were going about our business, unsuspecting what 2020 had in store. Around this time we were just going about our everyday lives. For Valentine’s Day, we might have gone out to a nice dinner. We were going out to concerts, enjoying live sporting events, and even taking weekend getaways. Fast forward to today when many of us are home almost all of the time. So, how can we keep the spark alive without leaving the house?
Here are twelve ways to create romance at home.
Cook your partner’s favorite meal, buy their favorite drink and turn the dining room into a little date night getaway. You can set the mood with candles and soft music in the background.
Focus on each other and use that time to spend together, being fully present.
Give each other full body massages and maybe indulge in a nightly skin care routine together
Leaving little messages of love throughout the house will definitely make them smile all throughout the day.
Spend time making your favorite treats together.
Whether it’s a dance party in the living room or a slow dance in the kitchen, woo your partner with your rhythm.
Treat your partner to a surprise picnic in the backyard for some alone time outside of the house. Of course, this is weather permitting. This one might be better in the spring!
Head to your local craft store and surprise your partner with a painting night or a craft you can do together.
Have a night of fun playing card games and board games you both love.
Make your partner feel loved by giving them extra kisses, snuggles and hugs.
In the midst of the pandemic most of us have given up dressing in clothes we used to wear to go out in. Get dressed up and have a fancy date night in the comfort of your home. Feel confident!
Intimacy adds to romance. Put on your favorite sleepwear, set the mood and make your partner feel wanted. If you have kids, let them stay over a friend or a relative’s house for a night every now and then. Make sure intimacy is still actively part of your relationship.
