Making dinner together
This may not sound very romantic, but if you and your partner love to be in the kitchen then this is the ideal date for you. You could decide to cook a three-course meal together or you could surprise him/her. Come up with a showstopper menu, get creative and name your dishes on your menu. Remember to make dishes that you would both enjoy. To make the dinner more amazing, set the dinner table and make the atmosphere as romantic as possible. This is your chance to honour yourself and your partner and make it romantic in your own home.
