Planning new ways to have a romantic weekend can get repetitive. You and your significant other can enjoy classic date night activities like going to the movies, or eating at your favorite restaurant, but have you thought about going for simple instead of elaborate?

Instead of following your old routine, why not take your beloved away from the regular while keeping things simple?

Love Nest

Consider going out of town and renting a house in the countryside. Try to find a place that’s cozy, comfortable, and secluded. Technology has allowed work matters and other concerns that can sap away romance to bleed into your personal life.¬† Try to find a location that can give both of you some time away from the hustle of modern life. Think about renting a cabin lodge or similar accommodation.

When you’ve booked your chosen love nest, make your weekend perfect by planning the menu and the activities that you and your loved one will share.

Delicious and Delightful Delicacies

Aside from the fact that it’s hard to feel sexy when you’re starving, food is one of the best ways you can show your partner that you care about them. You don’t even have to break the bank or master French cooking to provide the two of you with tasty meals. You can keep the menu simple but savory with the following meal ideas.

Few meals are as romantic as a nice pasta-based dish. This recipe for lemon garlic pasta can satisfy any craving for Italian cooking and its key ingredients are pasta, fresh lemon, olive oil, and garlic. The lemon juice makes the pasta zesty, and chili flakes add a hint of fire to the entire dish.

Glass of red wine on the terrace vineyard

If you’d like a little more meat, here is a recipe for steak frites that adds an invaluable shortcut that simplifies it without sacrificing quality: use frozen fries. You and your partner can enjoy your seasoned loin steaks with a side of crispy fries much quicker and far easier.

Finally, what can be simpler, or more heartwarming than serving breakfast food for dinner? Curl up in front of a fire while nibbling on eggs and toast, or warm yourselves with bowls of tomato soup. And the best part? You can whip them up again in the morning for your actual breakfast.

Enjoy Each Other’s Company in Simplicity

You don’t need a streaming service or a whole entertainment district to have fun. During your secluded romantic getaway, you and your significant other can take advantage of your remote locale to have a weekend you won’t forget in a hurry.

Pack a nice bottle of wine, a blanket, and some cheese before heading outside for a picnic. If your rented accommodation is far enough from the city, you can have an enchanting night under the stars. Take in the majesty of the universe in a spectacle that’s free of charge, with no commercials.

If you’re both feeling more comfortable indoors, purchase romantic adult board games. These classy games can give you and your partner a fun night, while also bringing you together. ¬†Alternatively, you could just enjoy games that you don’t have time to play anymore. Revisit childhood classics, like “Scrabble,” or a challenge each other with a few rounds of chess or checkers.

You can fan the flames of passion with simple activities and gestures. Without complicated arrangements and elaborate plans, you and your partner can spend time with the most important components of your relationship: each other.
