How to Have a Romantic Weekend at Home

Leading a busy, demanding lifestyle often means putting romantic relationships on the back burner. But, just like all other aspects of life, these relationships need care and attention to thrive. If it has been a while since you had some one-on-one time with your partner, now’s your chance to make up for it. Can’t afford a lavish getaway for two? You don’t need a special destination to enjoy quality time! With the right planning, whether you spend hours getting creative in the kitchen or playing online casino games, it’s possible to create a romantic retreat in the comfort and convenience of your home!

Read on to discover our best tips for a loved-up weekend in with your one-and-only.

Check your calendar

Ideally, you’ll want to treat this special weekend as though it was indeed a weekend away. There shouldn’t be any other plans or responsibilities that could cut into your time together – no work deadlines, no visitors and no worries!

Clear your schedule and work on minimizing your to-do list so nothing interrupts your alone time with your partner.

Unplug so you can reconnect

This romantic weekend is all about reconnecting with your partner, so it’s important to disconnect from everything else – including your smart devices. Unless, of course, you’re engaging in something online that brings you together, such as binging your favorite series or playing online slot machines!

Cuddle up

Resist the urge to use your time at home to clean or spruce up the house. The best quality time will be spent staying in one place. So, do yourselves a favor and make that place the bed or the sofa, where you can cuddle up, chat, laugh, reminisce and just enjoy each other’s company. There’s the added bonus of the relaxation that comes with this, so when Monday rolls around, you’ll feel more connected to your partner, as well as rejuvenated enough to tackle the week with bucket loads of energy.

Create a balance of activities

If you’d prefer to keep busy, do your best to create an itinerary that includes a balance of activities, taking into consideration both your and your partner’s likes, hobbies and preferences. If you love watching sports and your partner enjoys painting, you could spend one of the days snuggled up on the sofa watching a football game and eating popcorn, followed by painting together (or you posing!) outside in the sunshine. Get your partner involved in the planning to ensure you’ve covered all bases and that both of you are looking forward to the retreat.

Ban certain topics of conversation

Any topics that could lead to an argument or feelings of stress or worry should be banned from conversations for the duration of the weekend. That includes talks about finances, work and the kids!

Play together

Nothing can relax the mood and get you into the correct mindset for romance than playing and giggling together. Let your inner child run free with a board game, a video game, a game of tag or an afternoon of playing the best online casino games.
