Romantic Rendezvous #1: Cooking Together
Is it often the same person in your couple who cooks? Why not change that and get your hands on the stove together for the occasion. It's a great time to try a new recipe and spend time together over a glass of wine.
Romantic Rendezvous #2: Yoga Duet
Yes, you read that right. Doing yoga together as a couple is a great way to strengthen your bond. It will allow you to let go, create more intimacy and most importantly create new memories together. And who knows, maybe the yoga duo will become a habit!
Romantic Rendezvous #3: Game Night
A game night may seem like an ordinary evening, but it's not! It's a time to enjoy each other's company, have fun and discover the games your partner loved to play as a child.
Romantic Rendezvous #4: Indoor Picnic
You've probably already seen a few photos of indoor picnics on Instagram: a giant blanket, lights everywhere, big cushions and a nice little meal. It looks great! It's easy to do, doesn't need a big budget and is very romantic.
Romantic Rendezvous #5: A sweet edition of the 'apéro dinatoire
Skip the starter and main course and make way for dessert! If you and your partner like sweet and indulgent things, why not make a board with an assortment of chocolates, sweets, your favourite biscuits, Sundae-style ice cream, etc. Findinspiration on Pinterest!
Romantic Rendezvous #6: Karaoke Night
Find karaoke versions of your favourite songs on Youtube, make yourself a cocktail and sing your heart out! It's fun and very entertaining.
Romantic Rendezvous #7: Spa Night at Home
The spa atmosphere at home for a relaxing and romantic evening. The essentials? Candles, music, a glass of champagne, a face mask, and don't forget the massage oil to be even more relaxed after your hot bath.

Simply spend an evening in the city of your dreams and recreate the atmosphere without spending too much money!
