8 Stay-at-Home Date Night Ideas for a Sexy Night In

Staying in doesn’t have to be boring. There’s loads to be said for staying in and planning a date night at home: you don’t have to worry about other people, rushing for your restaurant reservation, the weather, or your expensive Uber home, plus, arranging something special makes time spent at home with your partner feel new and exciting.

Whether you don’t have the option of going out or just fancy a cosier version of a romantic evening, our date night ideas for couples at home range from the sweet to the sexy. Starting at the innocent and then gradually heating up, here’s some inspiration to make your next date night the best one yet…

1. Recreate a Fancy Restaurant Experience

Are you looking for how to make a date night at home feel truly special? Why not recreate the restaurant experience? We’re talking about pulling out all the stops, breaking out your best tableware, lighting some candles, and creating a vibe so great you’ll forget you’re even at home.

You and your partner can take it in turns on different nights and come up with your own themed restaurants. Go all out decorating, creating a theme, coming up with a menu (or a plan to order delivery from a restaurant – we won’t tell if you don’t!) and arranging your date night in. Get ready separately, getting dressed up as though you’re hitting up the fanciest restaurant, and arrange to meet downstairs at a certain time; you can even meet for a ‘pre-dinner’ drink in the lounge before making your way through to the ‘restaurant’. To really feel the love, why not plan a feast full of aphrodisiacs to get you in the mood?

2. Have an Indoor Picnic

If you can’t get outdoors for a picnic, bring the picnic to you! Turn up the heating, spread out a blanket on your living room floor, turn up the tunes, and enjoy recreating a beautiful summer's day – whatever the season or weather! Make up a traditional picnic, pop open the prosecco, and get romantic feeding each other strawberries and chocolate.

To take it from innocent picnic to a raunchy date, why not have a picnic in your favourite kinky lingerie – stockings or hold ups recommended! After all, when else can you picnic in just your underwear?! As a bonus, once things heat up, you won’t have very far to go to the bedroom!

3. Create a Sensual at-Home Spa Evening

An at-home spa day is perfect for relaxing, unwinding, and then turning up the heat. Light some candles or aromatherapy oils, treat yourselves to face masks, and – if you’re lucky enough to own a big bathtub! – take a romantic candle-lit bath together with music and wine.

To step things up a notch, oil up and give each other massages. There are plenty of tutorials online and, even if you don’t have the skills of a professional masseuse, everything feels great with some sensual massage oils. To turn your romantic date night at home into something a little steamier, bring a wand massager into the mix. A wand isn’t just great for easing tense muscles; when used on erogenous zones or for direct clitoral stimulation, it guarantees all-round pleasure!

Whether you’re thinking traditional or sexy, there are a load of date night games to play at home that’ll help you transform an ordinary evening into something special for the two of you. Keep it classic with board games or turn up the heat by planning in some sexy games to play at home.

Strip poker is always a great shout – and a great excuse to show off any new or sexy lingerie! If cards aren’t your thing, get creative. From strip chess to strip Jenga, there are plenty of fun ways to get out of your clothes and into the bedroom on your sexy games night.
