Baby, It’s Cold Outside—Romance at Home


The polar vortex has hit the country, and people are staying indoors to keep out of the cold.  But just because you can’t go outside for a romantic date doesn’t mean you can have a little romance in your life.  In fact, you can have plenty of romance at home.  Here are a few different ideas for staying warm indoors while still having a romantic evening.

Have a picnic on your bedroom floor.  Just spread out a blanket, make a nice dinner (or order in), and enjoy your favorite movie or music.  If it’s snowing and you still have your Christmas lights up, it will feel magical.  You might even want to get out the lights and decorate for the event.

If sitting on the floor isn’t your idea of a good time, just cook the nice romantic dinner.  Light the table with candles, put on some nice music, and have a fancy dinner at home.  You don’t need to get outdoors in the cold just to have a romantic dinner.

While going out to a theater to see a movie can be fun, watching a movie at home can be just as much fun.  You can have all the popcorn and soda you want without paying the crazy concession stand prices, for one thing.  For another thing, you don’t have to worry about missing a key point of the film if you have to make a bathroom run.  Get a warm blanket and cuddle together.

Of course, there’s nothing to say that you have to keep your romantic fun PG-13.  If you have a large bathtub, you can light some candles, pour some wine, and spend some quality time together covered in bubbles.  This type of evening can easily lead to the bedroom.  You might even want to do something like read a little romantic poetry or, if you sing or play an instrument, sing a love song.

There are many ways to have a romantic night at home.  While these are all great ideas, there are many more that are unique to you and your significant other.  Plan something the two of you love to do and see where the evening takes you.
