How To Have The Perfect Date With Bae At Home

Going out isn’t everyone’s strong suit. Also, we think it’s quite overrated. There’s no hint of subtlety left in the way love is expressed in bars and fine dines.  So, if you want to keep things on the simpler side with your better half, read on. 

Please note that that while we've recommended both online and offline shopping options we highly recommend you stay home right now for your safety and bookmark them for when the Covid situation eases up!

Set The Mood


Lights

If you have to stay indoors, mood is key. In order to put that together, you need two things- lighting and fragrance. No matter what you say, a nice-looking home makes all the difference. For lighting, put up a string of fairy lights. 

For Fairylights: Annabella in Bandra, or the Crawford market in SoBo for a cheaper deal. 

Shell Out: INR 300 onward at Crawford; and INR 700 onward at Annabella.

Eat Your Way To Love

Candle Light Dinner - Cook Something Together

There's no better way of bonding than cooking a wholesome meal together. Pick a cuisine, lookup for a recipe online, gather the ingredients and get set go. Make sure you've decorated the dining table to set the correct mood. Light up a candle and relish on the meal you guys have just cooked. 

If you're genuinely too bored to cook, we'd say pick a healthy delivery joint like these

Binge-Watching/Listening With BAE

It's Movie Time

Well, a date at home will not be complete without getting into your pyjamas, cuddling with your partner to watch an episode of your favourite show together.

We'd Pick: Love Actually, 10 Things I Hate About You, You've Got Mail, The Holiday, 500 Days Of Summer

P.S: If you're a couple that lives on slapstick comedy, you could do Bhagam Bhag, Hera Pheri and kinds like that (we love 'em all!)

Learn A New Skill Together

Pick A Hobby, Any Hobby

It's always fun to do some learning together.
