Feeling like getting cozy and staying in? After a long work week, it’s a treat to give yourself some well-deserved you-time. So sit back, relax, and unwind in the comfort of your own Broadstone luxury apartment. Whether you’re planning a romantic night with your partner or spending quality time with yourself, you don’t need to go over the top to plan the perfect night at home. Get creative, have some fun, and learn something new. 


Here are five tips to help you plan the perfect night in. 


Plan your movie/TV show binge ahead of time 

How many times have you found yourself sitting on your couch ready to dive into a good movie only to spend several minutes or ½ hour looking for something good to watch? Yup, the endless scroll happens to us all. Avoid a wasted night of scrolling through options by planning what you want to watch ahead of time. Look out for what’s trending on your favorite streaming services or reach out to your friends and social media network to see what’s on their must-watch list. 


Learn a new game

Everybody loves a good game, and these days there are countless options to choose from. From board games to card games to charades, enjoy the perfect night in with your number one and take part in a friendly competition. If you don’t have any board games or cards at home, plan a scavenger hunt for your special someone and wow them with clues hidden throughout your home. 


Flex your creative muscles 

Instead of going out for dinner, order takeout and spend the evening doing something you love. Whether you’re staying in alone or enjoying a date night with your partner, pick up a new hobby like drawing, painting, or playing your favorite classic tunes. If you’ve been with your partner for a while, share songs that remind you of each other. If you’ve barely started dating, take time to get to know their taste in music and hobbies. Let your creativity run wild and enjoy this free time to try and learn something new.


Dedicate the night to “self-care.” 

Self-care is all about taking care of your mental, emotional, and physical health. While bubble baths and face masks are a good start, it goes beyond that. Take time to stretch your body, meditate, or do something that helps align you. Use a gratitude journal to jot down everything that made you smile this week. Unplug from technology if you need to or read a book that’s been on your list.  


Ask questions  

Getting to know someone takes time and asking intimate questions is an excellent way to get started. These conversations help bring you closer together. If you’re planning the perfect night in with someone new, use the opportunity to get to know each other with a round of 20 questions. Not sure what to ask? Try this


  • What three places would you like to visit? 
  • What are three things you can’t travel without? 
  • What is your superpower? 
  • What does a perfect day look like to you? 
  • What would be a fun hobby to take up together? 

Whether you’re staying in by yourself or with company, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the perfect night at home. Plan your night, do something you’ve always wanted to do, or try a new recipe. Find us on Instagram @broadstoneqc and share your favorite things to do for a perfect night in.
