How about staying this Sunday at home with your spouse and plan for a date?
Well! That might sound bit weird thinking what possibly can you do the entire day on a date at home?
If you continue reading this article, I will tell you how can you plan a Sunday date ideas at home.
When we say ‘date,’ we plan a day out on for a movie with some good food or even go out on a day trip. Will a date at home be enjoyable? Won’t that be boring?
I feel that the date means spending a good time together and sharing good memories.
My husband and I sometimes prefer to stay indoors on Sunday when we are too tired to spend another day out driving through the city traffic. We manage to do plenty of exciting things which keeps us motivated and of course not dull.
There are so many creative and happy things you can think of on a Sunday date at home. Here are my Sunday date ideas at home for married couples.
A Sunday date idea at home with a large pizza could be fun. Just order your favorite pizza for home delivery and enjoy the dinner date with some soda.
Home Dance Studio
If you and your spouse love to do some dance, then you can think of creating an ambiance for dancing with some music playing in the background. Start dancing with your partner like you are on a dance floor.
Play a Board Game
I love playing board games. We pretty much enjoy playing every alternative day of the week. Don’t make a mistake to think that board games are only for kids. Even grown-ups can enjoy playing board games.
Play Video Games
Video game is an excellent idea for a Sunday date at home. Usually, Sunday is the lazy day I say, if it rains outside or not in a mood to go out and pretty much wants to stay indoor with your loving partner, playing video games is fun and quite relaxing.
Puzzle-solving is an exciting game to play on a Sunday date at home. It is time-consuming but fun to play with your partner.
Make pizza at home
Your Sunday date at home can turn into an interesting date if you do something ‘together.’ Why ordering pizza every time from a good pizza restaurant?
I know they taste good, but how about making a pizza from scratch together at home?
The hard work and love of a couple will make the pizza tastier than the pizza of a XYZ restaurant. Try it by following a pizza recipe, you will see the next time you won’t visit a pizza restaurant; instead, you both will enjoy making again.
Men love watching sports on a Sunday morning/afternoon/evening, actually any time of Sunday and this annoys all the girlfriends/wives. If I say, turn ‘watching sports’ into a Sunday date? How that would be?
Even though ladies don’t enjoy watching sports on a date, but if you can improvise, then it could turn into a lovely date from a boring one.
You can make it a ‘date game night’ which is more like a challenge. Both can cheer for their favorite team, and the one who wins will have to do the household chores for an entire day.
Something like this. You can bring the excitement and tension of winning.
Make dinner together
I am sure we all enjoy cooking. Cooking together as a couple makes your relationship stronger and healthier.
Also, it adds creativity which is interesting, and it keeps you engage in an activity.
‘Cooking’ is an amazing Sunday date idea at home which is fun also makes your relationship happier.
Enjoy watching a movie together with a big bowl of popcorn
Do I need to elaborate on it anymore? Who doesn’t love films but it feels great when you watch it together sitting on a couch with a bowl full of some caramel popcorn.
Have a Snacks Night at Home
Sunday is a lazy day of the week. We often don’t want to cook or do any chores at home. I have come up with a fascinating date idea at home on Sundays, i.e., only eating snacks that is available at home and spend the day in watching movies or playing video games or reading books to each other and so on.
My husband and I often enjoy doing this on a Sunday.
Camping in the balcony
I suppose camping can be done only outdoor, right?
How about to do something creative at home? Like, make a tent with bedsheets and decorate with light and pillows inside the tent.
Imagine that you are out and camping near a beach. You would love to spends hours inside your pseudo camp, reading books or poems to each other and busy in creating lovely moments.
Having a rooftop-date
Have you ever tried a rooftop date?
I have come up with this idea of a date, as a few days back my husband arranged a beautiful date on the rooftop of our society apartment. We both were busy for continuous two weeks in work and didn’t get much time to spend with each other.
So, he came up with this beautiful idea to surprise me, which made my day of course. Likewise, you could also surprise your partner with a rooftop Sunday night date.
Record a video of the whole day
You can record on your camera, a beautiful video of the entire day where you both spending a lively Sunday at home giggling, laughing, dancing or singing and later edit it and keep it safe somewhere.
It would be a very romantic and beautiful gift to your spouse on her/his birthday like a ‘nostalgic memory of a lovely day of your life.’
Why spending dollars when you can do that free at home? Start singing by just choosing a song on YouTube with lyrics/CC of it. There will be no one to judge you so who cares about what you sing, enjoy your time.
Arrange a Romantic Candle Light Dinner
When we go out to a candlelight dinner, it is always so romantic visually. But you can arrange that even at your home.
You cook something delicious and let your spouse arrange the table with some aromatic candles, flowers, and plates. A glass of wine will lift an essence to your date.
It gives us good vibes when we receive gifts from our spouse specifically when it is a surprise. You can gift each other and tell each other how much you care and love.
Do Painting Together
Sometimes when we choose to spend our Sunday doing recreational activities that we love, like painting is one of such things. Grab two canvases, colors, brushes and let your creative thoughts pour into the board.
It is indeed a good and creative date idea I believe.
