One would have to agree that it took no time for the catchphrase ‘Netflix & chill’ to become a full-fledged lifestyle choice. But in this process, have we lost out on the good old days of romance?

Well, dating used to be all about efforts and now it seems to have become an easy task.

Here’s looking at some other ways you and your SO can have a good time at home:

Bake Up & Make Up: Make Use Of The Kitchen!

Don’t underestimate cooking, it is one of the sexiest activities you and your partner can indulge in. Why not make the most of your weekend by baking some cake? Imagine the fun you can have with the aroma of cookie dough hanging in the air with your buttery fingers greasing the oven trays. There’s a reason why the kitchen floor ranks as one of the topmost places in the house where couples want to have all the fun!

So next time you want to spend some fun time with your SO, make it a kitchen date.

Play Zone: Bring Out Your Competitive Streaks

Why not turn your home into a play zone and make the home date a lively event? Bring out your competitive streaks and challenge each other with some PS4s or even board games. This way the couple can have a relaxing as well as fun time.

You could place a few bets and whoever loses could ‘do the dishes’ maybe?

If the relationship is comparatively new, this is a great way to test it and you can learn a lot about your partner’s personality from the kind of gamer he/she is.

Word It: Why Not Finish Each Other’s Sentences?

Not everyone enjoys solving a crossword but trust us, it is an intimate activity if you work on it with your partner. Solving a puzzle together makes you and your SO a team and it is endearing when you can finish each other’s sentences or fill in the blanks. If you and your SO are on the same page, then such activities will only add to your joy.

The smallest of clues in the puzzle could bring the two of you closer.

Photobook Fun: Bring Out Those Embarrassing Pictures

Photographs are the best way to relive your old days. Maintaining a photo book or a timeline of your relationship is a great way to savor the nature of your relationship. Sit and sift through boxes of memories together and laugh about all those crazy drunk stories that you will be reminded of. Spend an evening sipping wine and going through old photographs. Bring out those embarrassing pictures from your childhood and share them with your SO for a playful time.

After a hectic week full of work, there’s nothing like unwinding over the weekend with a book. You and your SO could pick up a book that interests you both and take turns reading it to one another.

You both could cozy up on the sofa along with hot cocoa and transcend into the world set by the author.
