It’s been two months since our baby arrived and we’re yet to have a date night. I keep day dreaming about it but if and when the rare opportunity comes, I prefer to just cuddle in front of our new fireplace. The recent temperature drops are no joke, plus I don’t want to be toooo far away from baby just yet and I have early mornings with our sons school run. BUT I’m well aware that having time together as a couple is just as important as being a present, hands-on mother.
So drop the kids off with Gogo or put them to bed earlier and try one of these indoor date night ideas:
You will need to eat, but prepping dinner takes additional time and effort. So start off by ordering a Big Night In A Box from Pizza Hut. For R100 you get:
Any 2 personal pan pizzas
Portion of chips
2 cheesy garlic twists
A chocolate pizza – yes, a chocolate pizza
THANK ME LATER 🙂
Then you’ll need to add some fun and relaxation to the mix. Try one of these ideas:
Catch up on your favourite series/show: If you don’t have any favourites in common, then compromise and watch his favourite… we’re going for the romance-vibe here remember? Go as far as watching a soccer game with him.
Record your memories: document all your special moments over the time you’ve been together. Note them down in a journal or scrap book and add pictures later. When he makes you mad and you need a reminder of how and why you fell in love, this will be a good reference, hahaha. But seriously, this is really sentimental and romantic.
Indoor picnic: just add a blanket, your drink of choice and snacks to your Big Night In A Box.
Dance: I have the most fun goofing around and showing off my latest dance moves, if that’s what you can actually call them. Look up some dances you can try together on YouTube if you’re just as clueless.
Boardgames: great way to release some tension and let your competitive spirit out. Personally, I’m not a fan but hey, this post is about you and your man so I will butt out.
A spa experience: get some yummy massage oils, scented candles and treat each other to back, neck and foot massages after a bubble bath.
