Add to favorites
  • The night begins with you setting the mood with dim lights and Halloween decorations. Use props from around your house or DIY a few. Set out a table with your partner’s favorite snacks, and a couple of drinks.
  • Once the stage is set, indulge yourselves in thrilling ghost stories, with each room designated to a different story. Alternating between storyteller and the one who gets spooked can make it a fun experience. Create a climatic finish by pointing out the 'spooky ghost' you spotted earlier in the corner.
  • The night ends with both of you escaping the haunted house - you can make your way to your room: the 'safe zone'. As a reward for braving through the night, you could give each other a relaxing massage with a touch of intimacy.

Preparation steps:

  • Collect some Halloween decorations, or make your own using DIY tutorials online. Choose some spooky candles, cobwebs or makeshift ghosts. A dimmed lighting setup will help set the right atmosphere.
  • Prepare snacks and drinks that your partner loves. Make sure you are well versed with a few ghost stories which you will be narrating throughout the night.
  • Find suitable, comfortable clothes that can allow easy transition to a relaxing nightcap towards the end. Create a playlist of eerie music to play softly in the background.

Some tips:

  • Ensure your partner is comfortable with the theme. Some people might genuinely not like spooky stories, and it’s crucial you consider their feelings and preferences first.
  • Make sure the room's temperature is comfortable given that it’s the month of October and could get cool indoors.
  • Make the ghost stories and spooky pathway fun rather than too eerie or scary. The aim is to have a fun-filled romantic evening. You can include some funny anecdotes in your stories to keep it lighthearted.
