When was the last time you had a romantic date night with your loved one? If most of your dates include going out, drinking and dancing, you can mix things up with nice dining experiences every once in a while. It’s easy to dress up and go grab a bite, but the more romantic option is to stay at home and enjoy the food in private. If you want to surprise your significant other with a dinner for your next date night, here are some amazing ideas:

Pick a theme

Themed parties are a true treat for us gays, so why not opt for a cute theme for your date night? For instance, you can pay homage to your or your partner’s heritage or you can pick a color theme for your food and decoration. Make sure to dress up appropriately to follow the theme and make the night truly special. And to surprise and treat your partner even more, grab a Polaroid or borrow a professional camera from one of your friends (someone probably has a digital camera) and take some candid photos of your partner. 

Prepare a charcuterie board

To star the evening right, prepare a beautiful charcuterie board that’s pleasant to the eye as much as it is pleasant to the belly. Make sure to arrange the board with all sorts of goodies like cheese, fruit, nuts and crackers. Check out what fruits and goodies go well together. For instance, ham and figs make a perfect combo, as well as soft cheese and fruit spread. And the best thing is that you can make a rainbow on your charcuterie board with all the foods and make your dinner extra gay. Munching on these specialties will not only get you in the mood for some more serious food, but also for some cute kisses and touches. 

Elevate the food

Simple pasta with chicken and sauce is always a tasty idea, but if you want to make your date night truly special, try to elevate your meals. It’s not likely you can prepare a 48h roasted lamb shoulder at home or whip up a champagne Barramundi pie, but a pro chef can. If your kitchen is just not ready for any elaborate dishes, you can always rely on chef prepared meals that will arrive at your doorstep looking and tasting perfect. You can choose from a variety of mains, sides and desserts, all of them prepared by expert cooks. All you have to do is reheat the meal and provide cool drinks for your date. 

Prepare a fun game with dinner

If you’re not much of a cook, you can opt for simple foods like pizza or pasta and make your date night special in other ways. For instance, you can prepare a game you can play with your partner as you munch on tasty food. The timeless game of 21 Questions is always fun, especially for the beginning of your relationship. If you’ve already spent some time together, you can create a quiz about your relationship and see how you do. Both games will bring you closer together and make your nice date even more unforgettable. 

Organize a midnight picnic with sweet bites

All you need for a romantic picnic indoors or in your backyard is blankets, a cute basket for all your goodies, two glasses and some chill drinks. If you choose an indoor version, you can elevate the experience with a fort, but in any case, you need a bunch of pillows, blankets and sheets. An outdoor version of your dinner date requires an open roof so you can watch the stars of course. For food, you can opt for chocolate-dipped strawberries and champagne—a true and timeless classic that’s very elegant yet easy to set up. 

With these date night ideas, you can forget all about gay clubs and bars and enjoy your every date at home. You’ll get to enjoy all the good food, comfort of your home and hop to bed whenever you feel like it.
