Date Night at Home

Bringing Sexy Back: Romancing the Home

Don't want to spend $100 on dinner and then fork over another $60 for the babysitter just to have a few hours to yourselves? Then plan a date night at home. When the kiddies are tucked in bed and mom and dad are all alone, turn up the heat with some of these easy ideas.

  • Set the table with the finest dinnerware. Pulling out some old china may remind couples of their wedding and all the hoopla that accompanied it.
  • Light some candles around the house instead of using regular lights.
  • Set up a picnic blanket and have dinner and wine on the floor.
  • Make popcorn and cuddle up to classic old movies.
  • Pour some champagne and fire up a big bath tub full of bubbles.

  • Buy some massage oil and get to rubbing.
  • Cook dinner together.
  • Face off in a board game challenge.
  • Make sundaes for dessert. Don't forget the whipped cream!

Every other Friday we do "Fancy take out night". We get something delicious from one of the nicer restaurants near us. Not only do we save the cost of a babysitter but a ton by having our own wine and not paying the crazy restaurant mark up.
