Your Guide to a Romantic Night In

Sometimes there’s no need to go out.


It’s date night and you two decided to stay in rather than go out. Who can blame you both? Just because it’s a night in, doesn’t mean it has to be boring.

We’ve got plenty of fun ideas for you and that special someone. Keep reading to find out the best ways to make your next romantic night one to remember. It won’t be complete with the following things listed below.

Music to Set The Atmosphere

Who says romantic music is dead? We certainly didn’t. If you want to set the atmosphere with some of the best love songs of today or ages past, find yourself a few romantic vinyl records. Yes, vinyl is back.

If you don’t have a vinyl record player, you can get it from your grandmother’s attic and pray that it still works. Or you can get one that plays well and has excellent quality sound. It would be better to go for the latter, now that we think about it.

Who is your favorite music artist? What musician do you both love? What kind of songs do they have out that set the tone for the romantic evening?

Relaxing Without The Fancy Furniture

If you are looking for the best way to relax, no need to get any fancy furniture. You don’t need to tidy the love seat together. Why not relax with a giant bean bag fit for two?

The two of you can sit together and get cozy while listening to music and talking about whatever you both have in common. Better yet, you two can play games that will be fun (and can get competitive in a good way). Speaking of games, we’ll bring that up here in a bit.

For the time being, take a moment to relax and soak it in. You both will feel like you don’t want the night to end. It’s probably getting started and you both want to make the night even better.

If you want a bit of extra comfort, we might have something you’ll want to throw into the mix. For now, let’s briefly talk about what else you need. Especially if you want the night to end on a high note (if you know what we mean by that).

Guys – Get That Edge

If you’re a guy that is in his late 30s or older, pay attention to this. You may be losing a bit of testosterone. For that reason, it could hinder the performance a bit.

Signs of lowering testosterone can include decreased sex drive and performance. Don’t feel bad. You’re not the only guy that’s going through it.

Help is on the way in the form of a men’s testosterone booster. With a nice boost in testosterone, you’ll feel a bit more manly than ever. You’ll also feel a bit of an increase in your sex drive and performance.

If you want to put an exclamation point to this romantic night in, you probably cannot do without a good testosterone booster that will help get the job done.

Set The Mood

Of course, no romantic night would be complete without candles. Place them in certain places throughout the house such as the dinner table or the living room. Want a good idea for a candle?

You probably would choose this evil eye candle as your best option for the living room. Light it up, turn down the lights, and you have the perfect romantic setting. Not too shabby, right?

Candles and romantic music may sound cliche to many. Yet, we beg to differ. It’s still much more in style today than it was in the past. 

Make Food A Little Fancy

Going to a fancy, 5-star restaurant? Out of the question. Turning your kitchen and dining room into one might just be better than that.

You might have a bit of a culinary edge. For that reason, you might have a good idea of what’s on the menu. If you really want to fancy it up, getting caviars from a store near you will be perfect.

The good news is that the ingredients (depending on what you cook) will be more forgiving on your wallet. Compare that to a night out at the hottest restaurant in town. That sure beats not only an expensive dinner bill, but also waiting to get seated and for the food itself.


You probably aren’t as crafty in the culinary department. If that’s the case, no pressure. You can take a moment to put together something that you and your romantic date can enjoy.

Comfort Is A Priority

You and that special someone want to get a little comfortable. You already have the bean bag. What else would you need?

What about comfortable pillow cases? At a nice comfy blanket and the two of you can get settled in for a movie, a tv show binge, or something completely different.

What? Watching a movie or tv show is a bit vanilla? OK, we hear you.

For that reason, we’ve got an even better idea. If you and your special someone like having fun while getting a bit competitive, here’s an idea that you’ll both enjoy.

Mario Kart, Anyone?

Oh yes, why not throw in a little fun competition to make this night even more memorable. You’re both lovers for much of the day. It shouldn’t hurt to be friendly rivals in a nice game of Mario Kart Deluxe 8 on the Nintendo Switch.

You can also play fun games on the platform that you and your special someone can enjoy. It probably doesn’t have to be video games at all. You can play games that you both can enjoy.

Other ideas can range from playing adult-themed games that you can find in novelty gift stores. Or it can be games that don’t require a pen and paper like ‘two truths and a lie’. Ah, that’s a game that will definitely help you get to know one another a little better.
