cosy date night ideas for blankets
Whether you're hanging out with your bestie on Galentine's Day or planning a romantic night in on February 14th, make your blanket the centrepiece of a thoughtful and original evening together

1. Indoor Picnic by the Fire


Recreate the charm of an outdoor picnic in the comfort of your home. Lay out a picnic rug by the fireplace, surrounded by candles for a soft, romantic glow. A basket filled with your favourite finger foods, a bottle of wine, and some background music can set the scene for a relaxed, intimate evening.

2. Conservatory Star Gazing

If you have a conservatory (or even just a loft window) this is the perfect spot for a cosy star-gazing date. Spread out a snuggly wool blanket, bring in some comfortable cushions, and lie back to watch the stars. Grab some binoculars for a closer look at the night sky, and enjoy the beauty of the universe from the comfort of your warm, enclosed space.

3. Balcony or Patio Retreat

For those with a covered balcony or patio, why not create a snug retreat outside? With a fire pit for warmth, a soft merino scarf around your neck your British Blanket Company recycled wool blanket for extra cosiness, you can enjoy the fresh air without the chill. Sip on hot chocolate, toast some marshmallows, and cherish the flickering firelight together.

5. Cosy Movie Marathon


Nothing says cosy like a movie marathon under a soft, warm blanket. Choose a selection of your favourite films, dim the lights, and snuggle together under an extra large wool blanket. Keep a tray of snacks and warm drinks handy for a comfortable, uninterrupted viewing experience.
