Cosy Indoor Movie Night

Duration: 3 hours
Budget: $50

In this low cost and comfy date idea, you can have a romantic night, complete with a good movie and homemade snacks. The focus is on intimacy and comfort, which is perfect for a cold January day. You can also play games, have a heart to heart or simply enjoy each other's quiet company.

Add to favorites
  • The date begins as you two decorate the living room with warm lights or scented candles. The movie will be one that incorporates both of your interests, but if you're stuck, a classic romcom works every time.
  • The lights are dim and the room smells of your favourite scents. You both gorge on homemade popcorn and cuddled under a soft blanket. Time to hit the play button!
  • Once the movie ends, it's time for a deep and meaningful conversation. You two ask questions, share stories and make the simple nothings count. Sharing out your dreams and fears could make your bond even stronger.

Preparation steps:

  • In the morning, decide on the movie you both want to watch. Make sure it suits both of your interests, but don't spend too long deciding on it. The happiness of being together is very important. Buy or make popcorn, bake some cookies and keep the home warm for a cosy atmosphere.
  • During the day, you can decorate the living room or the chosen venue with fairy lights, or scented candles. This would create a nice ambiance for the whole date. Also, prepare some conversation starters or questions. It can be something personal or something fun but should be good conversation starters.
  • About half hour before the date, start making the snacks. It's a good idea to start the movie with your snacks already served so there's no interruptions during the movie.

Some tips:

  • Make sure whatever movie you choose, it should be a mutual decision. You can also go for a trending movie for discussion purposes later.
  • Wearing comfortable clothes is a must. No need to dress up, just be comfortable so that you can enjoy the movie night to the fullest.
  • Remember, it's not just about the movie. The important part is you both enjoying the time together. The conversation part can be the most enjoyable and important part of the date, so don't rush through it.
