Remember your first dates, when going to the cinema together felt like a big deal? Re-create an evening at the movies at home: Dress up, pick a movie together (try a romantic flick), pop some popcorn and snack on boxes of candy.
Instead of cooking an elaborate three-course dinner, order your favourite takeout and bring the restaurant to you. When the food arrives, serve it on your regular dishware and eat at your dining room table to make the meal fancier. When you’re finished, skip dish duty and pop plates and silverware in the dishwasher with a Cascade Platinum ActionPac – you won’t even have to rinse.
Before your partner arrives, jump in the shower or take a long, hot bath and scrub away stress with Olay Fresh Outlast Soothing Orchid & Black Currant body wash. Then treat yourself to a hydrating moisturizer like Olay Age Defying Classic Night Cream. You might even consider booking an in-home couple’s massage for a true spa experience!
Take some time to look at pictures from your relationship: places you’ve traveled together, romantic dates you’ve gone on, family events you’ve attended. If you have a ton of pictures to organize, sort through them together and add them to photo albums or frames.
If you and your partner are nature lovers, consider taking your date night outdoors. If the sky is clear, bundle up in coats and blankets, and spend some time looking at the stars in your backyard. More adventurous souls can even light a small bonfire and enjoy a romantic evening exploring the night sky. Bring along a couple of mugs and a thermos of hot chocolate to stay toasty!
If you and your partner love to travel, spend some time planning your next romantic trip. Don’t dwell too much on practicality – dream big with a weekend in Paris, a holiday in Iceland or a shopping spree in New York City. Browse through books or get online to plan the places you want to visit.
