When you don't have the cash to go out for the night, there are stay-at-home date ideas that are just as fun as any concert or museum. If you're with the right person, then you don't need to be somewhere fancy in order to be happy. Here are some stay-at-home date ideas to use when you're stuck inside:
1. Netflix for Two
You want to binge watch Game of Thrones, but you also want to spend time with your boyfriend. The solution? Get your man as obsessed with the show as you are. After watching an episode or two, he'll be hooked. This is one of the best stay-at-home date ideas, because you'll get to spend time with your two loves: your man, and your laptop.
2. Couples Crafts
When you were little, craft time was always a blast. Now that you're older, you can work on more adult projects. Of course, you could always act like children and break out the finger paints if you wish. But if you want to get romantic, create a scrapbook of your relationship. If you don't have any pictures printed out, draw scenes out, or paste down ticket stubs from the last movie you saw.
3. Fake Photo Shoot
You don't have to take a series of impromptu selfies that you'll post on the internet. Instead, get a little playful and play dress up. Set up scenes, and dress up for the occasion. If you have an old bridesmaid dress you'll never wear again, put it on, give your man a suit, and take pics like you did at prom. If you have cute pajamas, put them on and snap photos while snuggling up with a bowl of popcorn.
4. Beat Him at a Board Game
Not every board game is meant for a child. There are plenty of games created for adults, some of which can get a bit sexual. Search online for the perfect one, and purchase it before your next date. If all else fails, there's always Scrabble.
5. Make a Meal
Virtually every romantic comedy has a scene where a couple is cooking together in the kitchen. Why? Because it's so darn adorable! Even if you don't have the ingredients for a special meal, you can at least hold hands while you pour milk onto cereal.
6. Travel through Time
Turn off your cell phones so that you can't be distracted. Put away your laptop and turn off the TV. You can leave out your iPod, but only to set the mood with music. Then light some candles, and converse like you would if you didn't have technology to distract you. If you're okay with being together without actually doing something together, then you can each read a book, and discuss it when the night is over.
7. Spa Treatment
Give each other massages without getting distracted by kissing. By the end of the night, the sexual tension will be as high as your relaxation. Then you can finally indulge in a few sweet kisses. The wait will make it feel more amazing than ever before.
Leaving the house is overrated. You can have a great date from inside of your own four walls. What's your favorite thing to do with your partner when you spend the night indoors?
