  • Since it's August, the days are still long in Stockholm, allowing you to spend the late afternoon preparing a special dinner together. You'll start by cooking some traditional Swedish dishes, allowing you to bond over the shared activity. Later, you'll eat together in a room lit only by candlelight, creating an intimate, cosy setting. After dinner, you can curl up on the couch together and watch a classic romantic movie.

Preparation steps:

  • This date requires some strategic preparation. First, research some traditional Swedish recipes you'd both like to try and create a shopping list of ingredients. You may need to visit a specialty store or order some things online if they're not typically available at the supermarket. Once you have everything, prepare your living space for the date. Clean and tidy up to create a relaxing atmosphere. Set the dining table or living space with candles for the dinner. Lastly, have a couple of classic romantic films at hand, ensure your TV or projector is in working condition, and the environment is cosy for the perfect movie night.

Some tips:

  • Plan the menu together as it's a great opportunity to learn about each other's taste preferences and dietary restrictions. \n2. Be sure to choose a movie that you both will enjoy. It doesn't have to be overly romantic – the point is to enjoy each other's company. \n3. Pace yourself throughout the evening. It's about enjoying each other's company, not rushing through the activities.
