Couples often challenge each other for a cook-off and so this Valentine’s Day set up a dinner cook-off with your partner and see who manages to nail the taste better. Either choose a specific course, to begin with, or start small with an easy, no-cook appetizer if you aren’t big on cooking. In addition to this, you can also pick one ingredient and come up with a recipe that stars it. And after messing up the kitchen counter, loading the sink with dirty pots and pans, we are sure that you would’ve managed to create something impeccable.
Even if you haven’t, it’s the memories that would count towards making this stay-at-home date incomparable.
Light up your living room or your loft with some pretty fairy lights and beautifully scented candles, for a romantic dinner date that is both cozy and personable. Most importantly, don’t forget to enjoy the food you’ve cooked together. And even if you haven’t, then order in and layout a fancy spread. Lastly, don’t forget to add that extra oomph of classic romance with some preserved red roses that you can keep for long even after this stay-at-home date ends.
End the day with a beautiful sing-along hour as Karaoke is always anticipated as one of the most fun at-home dates!

And later that night, cozy up on the living room couch and watch a movie, you both love.
These romantic stay-at-home date ideas are sure to save you from the stress of finding a babysitter or finding a parking spot in the busy downtown.
