Planning a special night in

During you and your partner’s busy schedules and on-the-go lifestyles, you might rarely get the chance to spend any real, quality time together; and even if you do, it’s still nice to add a little spice to a relationship.

So why not put a little excitement into your next planned night in together by putting together a little surprise night in?

Whether impressing a man or woman, candles are always a mood setter as they involve dim, flattering lights, and especially if they are scented make the room smell yummy and have a relaxing vibe.

If you want to put a little indoor picnic together, try pushing all the furniture to the edges of the room, and laying out oodles of quilts, blankets and throw cushions to make your own boudoir.

This idea is particularly great if you have a fireplace in your place for you to huddle in front of.



Food is always necessary to keep you both fuelled throughout the night – after all grumbling belly sounds are not sexy. But whilst it may be appealing to get your Delia on and throw together a slap up meal, it is likely to get you hot and bothered in the wrong way; it also limits your ability to be spontaneous and go with the flow, regimenting you to eat at a certain time or ruin the food.

Instead, why not opt to buy in all your favourite finger foods and easy makes, so you can graze throughout the night as and when you please, and there’s no huge effort to cook and clean up and as mentioned above, you can set up an intimate floor picnic, or a picnic in bed.


Allow your partner to indulge in their favourite activities – so long as it can be done together; pick their favourite video games, favourite films – comedy is good for keeping a light, playful mood; even their favourite board or card game, if you’re a bit of a nerdy couple.


Whilst setting up your romantic night in, don’t forget to think about what you’re going to wear. Even if you’d rather start the night fully clothed, you can still have a sexy outfit on underneath; or, if you want to get right down to business, open the door to your partner clad in just lingerie with a pair of killer heels to have him drooling from the word go.

If you want to surprise your partner with a special night in, buy sexy lingerie from Lux, lingerie who can provide you with anything from a butter-wouldn’t-melt baby doll, to a less subtle but extremely impacting body stocking. See what they can do for you today.
