You don’t have to eat at a fancy restaurant to experience a romantic and memorable date night. In fact, you don’t even need to leave home! Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, we’re sharing some fun and unique ideas for hosting a date night in your apartment.
Host a Spa Night in Your Apartment
What better way to unwind from the workweek than a relaxing spa session? You and your partner or friend can pamper yourselves right at home by having a spa night in your apartment. You’ll just need some inexpensive but indulgent toiletries like rich moisturizers, hydrating sheet masks, and sweet-smelling body spray.
Make Something Crafty
Craft projects can be great for bonding with your partner. You’ll get to explore your creatives sides while making something together, so no matter the end result, it’ll be an experience to remember. Browse Pinterest to pick a craft project and get started.
Cook a Meal Together
If you normally eat out, mix things up this weekend and try cooking a meal with your partner. If you’re up for a challenge, go for a three-course meal, complete with an appetizer, main course, and a dessert.
Solve a Puzzle
There’s a puzzle for everything these days, from famous works of art to pretty much any theme you could imagine. Pick a puzzle, pour some drinks, and watch your puzzle’s picture come to life as you piece it together with your partner.
Enjoy an Indoor Picnic in Your Apartment
Picnics are what date night dreams are made of, but during the wintertime in Chicago, a traditional outdoor picnic isn’t an option. But don’t worry, we have an alternative suggestion — arrange an indoor picnic right in your apartment. Lay a tablecloth on the floor, light some candles, and enjoy a cozy warm winter picnic at home.
