Best Date Night Ideas for the Perfect Night in
For the nights where you just want to stay in—your Alvarez Construction home is the perfect destination for date night. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, now is the time to think about some new and exciting date night ideas you can try out this year. Read on to see a few of our favorites.
Skip the dinner reservation
It’s no secret that dinner reservations fill up quickly on Valentine’s Day. The act of calling a handful of restaurants in order to find one that isn’t already booked is draining in itself—and a day that was supposed to be filled with love is now filled with stress. This year—skip the dinner reservation entirely and become your own master chef for the evening.
With so many virtual cooking classes available nowadays, you’ll easily be able to find one that sparks your interest. Whether it’s a classic Italian ravioli recipe, a traditional Spanish paella or a dessert special with homemade Parisian macarons—you’ll amaze yourself when you taste the finished product. Another great way to try out some new recipes for the night is by taking a look through a number of meal-kit companies. With fresh ingredients delivered right to your doorstep, companies like HelloFresh and Blue Apron will help turn your kitchen into this year’s top dining destination.
Bring back the basics
Planning a movie night will never go out of style—and it can pair perfectly with any dinner date plans. Break out all of your fuzzy blankets, turn down the lights and enjoy a movie marathon to end the day.
Sometimes, a good old-fashioned game night makes the perfect date idea. If you’re interested in some fun ways to challenge your mind—chess, scrabble or crossword puzzles are the way to go. Or, bring out your favorite childhood board games for a trip down memory lane. Nowadays, you can also find plenty of games online. If you’re looking for an exciting evening event—try your hand at a virtual escape room and join in on the gold rush or find a forbidden treasure.
Learn a new hobby
It’s never a bad idea to learn something new, so why not make it a date night event? With our Alvarez homes offering plenty of space with additional flex room options—you’ll be able to design the perfect room for your new hobby. Wine and paint events are growing in popularity, and they’re also incredibly easy to recreate on your own. Gather up your supplies around town, browse Pinterest and YouTube for some inspiration and get to work creating your own masterpiece. If you’re a book lover, swap your favorite book with your significant other and spend the evening discussing your favorite scenes. When in doubt—think about some activities you would normally do around town and see how you can recreate those ideas in your own home.Whatever you do this Valentine’s Day—your Alvarez home offers the perfect backdrop to any date.
