In our busy lives, we all need more time to unwind and relax. Get some quiet time with your partner with a special spa session. You'll experience the tranquility of massages, essential oils, and scented candles- a delight for mind, body and soul! Book a spa at a rejuvenation centre or become each other's masseuses (we definitely recommend the later!)
7. Get to know them better
When we're so close to someone, we think we know everything about them but surely that's not true. Part of the appeal of first dates is that you learn so much about the person so why restrict that curiosity and revelation in your 10th or 100th date? A romantic evening is a great time to get to know your partner more deeply. You can play a rapid round of 20 fun questions or ask some open-ended philosophical questions and let the conversations steer the night! Here's a list of 40 date night questions to get you started.
8. Exchange love letters
Often words accomplish what nothing else can. At a time when our love messages are usually ILY or emojis, take the time to express your feelings to your loved one in an old-fashioned love letter. Opt for this old-school approach and make your date night even more memorable with heartfelt notes. A great way to spice up your next date with some wholesomeness and romance!
9. Set the mood with the right candles
The romance lies in the little details, especially the lights and the aroma that contribute to the setting. Whether you want to dance all night, or just slow down and relax, candles are the best way to set the ideal mood. Scented candles like Rose are the go-to option for a romantic setting. With the power of aromatherapy, romance would literally be in the air!
10. Engage in art
Indulge in the little pleasures that bring you closer to your partner. Having individual interests is important, but a fantastic way to bond with your significant other is to try something new together. Cooking, pottery, and poetry are all great options. Another creative way is to paint together wherein you can express your thoughts through colours. And the best part is- you don't need to be a professional! Simply bring some colours and let your companion and you paint your heart out.
11. Celebrate with the traditional wine and chocolates
Nothing says romance like the traditional wine and chocolates. So, if you're looking to add something special to your date night, don't look further. Pop open the wine bottle you have been saving for a special occasion, after all, what could be more special than quality time spent with the one you love? If you're at home, try the ultimate romantic combo of chocolate and wine - the perfect gift for couples.
