Even if you’ve been together forever, there could be things you still don’t know about each other!
Grab a glass of wine and some apps, and pull up some 20 questions or newlywed questions lists on your phone. You’ll love learning new things about your partner and your conversations will be positive and fulfilling!

2. Dance Lessons at Home

Have a romantic dance night at home!

Not only will dancing help you burn off some of your dinner, but dancing with your partner can create such an intimate connection. You can easily find some tutorials on YouTube, as we learned from Jenny Collier.

Worst case scenario, if you both have two left feet, you can laugh all night at your silly attempts!

3. Game Night with a Twist

A game night can be a cheap way to have some fun with your love, and it’s much more stimulating than just sitting on the couch and watching TV!

Try some of these games perfect for just you two, and make it spicy – place some fun bets before you play the games for what the loser has to do? Get as creative as you want!

4. Romantic Movie Night

A movie night can be romantic if you put a little thought and effort into it.

Rearrange the furniture to make a comfy blanket and pillow fort so you can snuggle up with your boo. Adding lights and some snacks will definitely gain you some extra points.

5. DIY Escape Room
