Fun date night ideas: 9 Cute things you can do with your boyfriend while staying home

When the wind is howling and the rain is lashing against the window pane, the last thing you want to do is get dressed up for a night out. So leave the weather to get on with its own thing outside, turn the fire up, draw the blinds and have a cosy night in with our nine stay-in cute date night ideas for you and your boyfriend:

1. Have a competition in the kitchen

Ready, steady, cook! Share out some ingredients that you can find in the kitchen and see who can come up with the best dish for dinner for each other. Have a taste test at the end and the loser gets clear away the dishes.

2. Get the board games out

Board games aren’t just for the kids, adults can enjoy them too. There are loads to choose from: if you want to tax your brain, try trivial pursuit or scrabble. If you just want to get silly, get Twister out of the back of the cupboard.

3. Learn how to make cocktails

Impress your friends, the next time you hold a party and learn how to make cocktails. You’ll need to get some of the equipment first: a shot measure, a shaker, some ice and some essential ingredients, then buy a cocktail recipe book and give it a whirl.

4. Travel the world in the comfort of your home

Create a theme for your night in by choosing a country form around the world. Get the right wine, the right food, put on a movie set in your chosen country and away you go. Think of the places that you could visit: China, Italy, France, Mexico and you won’t even need a passport!

5. Dine in and do it in style

You don’t have to out to dress for dinner. Buy in some posh nosh and dress up your finest. Black tie for him and best frock for her, candles on the table and some gentle background music on the stereo, and you can have a romantic dinner for two and the bedroom’s just next door!

6. Put a kids’ movie on

Remember all your favorite kids’ films and cartoons? Bring back those happy childhood memories and have an evening in with Walt Disney or your favorite Kids’ TV shows. Make the night complete with a bowl full of kids’ candy and you can reminisce how they all used to be bigger and taste better, when you were young.

7. Spend the day in bed

Stock up on snacks, get the movies in and just stay in bed for a day. Switching off and letting the world go by outside is a great way to chill out and get close. Have a day of just doing nothing.

8. Workout together

All the best health articles say you should have a workout buddy, so what’s wrong with that being your boyfriend? Get a workout video and try all the exercises together. Even if the workout doesn’t work, you’ll probably lose pounds from all the laughing.

9. Plan a vacation

Get all the brochures in and spend the night planning your perfect vacation. You’ll be surprised, when you spend more time looking into it, how many different things that there are to do and many places there are to go. If you plan and organize your trip yourselves, without using an agent, you can choose exactly where you want to go and where you want to stay, and it will probably be less expensive too.
