Love should be celebrated – and what better way to celebrate, than with a weekly (or monthly) date night…

Date night doesn’t have to break the bank – in fact, the most romantic date nights can be held in the comfort of your own home!

Budget or splurge, here are 10 ways to make date night extra special:

1. Reserve a table… at home!

Anything can be special, if you make it so. A cozy dinner at home can be wonderfully romantic with a little effort. Make the table look unique, use your fancy dishes, bring home a delicious bottle of wine, OD on flowers and candles, and bam!, you have a new tradition just for you two.

2. Head to a spa

Getting ‘spa-ed’ relaxes you and makes you feel like a million bucks. Who wouldn’t want to indulge in a little R&R? Date night is a great excuse to pamper yourself. Book a couple’s treatment and take advantage of the chance to unwind.

3. Plan an indoor picnic

An indoor picnic is a cool way to be low key and hang out at home. It’s cute, easy and different. Put a blanket on your bed, bring home some chocolate, wine and cheese, and make clothes an optional extra!

4. Go ice-skating

When was the last time you went ice-skating? Hold hands, have some hot chocolate and enjoy skating around. It’s the perfect dreamy winter activity.

5. Go dancing

Who doesn’t love a dance party with someone they care for? Dancing is a great way to have fun and let loose.

6. Recreate your first date

What could be more sentimental and special than recreating your first date as a couple? Women love being romanced and surprised. A great way to show her you care is to pay attention to all the details.

7. Sign up for a cooking class

Cooking is an easy way to have some messy fun. It lets you be touchy feely and try a new experience. Get all dressed up and get ready to learn a new recipe.

8. Have a staycation

Spending the night in a hotel is a good way to create passion, some excitement, and a little bit of spice in your relationship. It creates an intimate experience for just you two. How fun is it to take a shower in a beautiful bathroom, put on a plush robe, and spend quality time with each other!?

9. Create a book

If you’re into corny but sweet things, creating a love book is genius. You can compile all of your favourite photos and write comments next to them. Describe why you love your significant other and why you’re extra thankful for him or her. This is a great way to spend time together – and create something that will last forever!

10. Plan a secret getaway

Women love it when men put effort into absolutely anything – and vice versa! A surprise trip can be hard to pull off, but if it’s done right, it’s oh, so worth it. Get all the logistics coordinated for a weekend away and your partner will be wowed.
