Although there’s no denying that socializing has its perks, there comes a time when you need a day or two to relax. You know the feeling. You’re tired and all you can think about is comfy pajamas, a glass of wine, a hot bath and binge-watching your favorite show on Netflix. It’s clear. You’re due for a nice and quiet perfect night in.
Believe me, there’s no shame in it. Even the most extravagant of extroverts need a little time off now and then. So when your warm and cozy bed or couch is calling, here are four apps that will help you to create the perfect evening in – whether you’re planning the perfect night in alone or with a partner or friend.
Although you might have a big screen TV to rival your local cinemas, there’s something sinfully delicious about sneaking into bed at 7 pm and embracing an early night. If you know exactly what we’re talking about, it’s time to download Netflix onto your smartphone, so you can watch your favorite series curled up under the covers and closed off from the world. Put on your coziest pajamas, turn up your heated blanket and make your own little nest under the duvet – it’s exactly what you need.
Although you might feel like you never want to move from your bed again, your tummy is sure to start rumbling at some point. But there’s an app for that. Whether you want some hot and bubbly Italian al Forno delivered, or a healthy takeaway meal that you can order with ease, Deliveroo is the app for you. It has everything from food inspiration to top-notch local eateries to help you out.
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to do on a quiet night in is to reminisce about wilder nights out. I love going deep into my camera roll. It’s fun flicking through photos and remembering moments with friends and family. With that in mind, I recommend Snapfish. The web-based photo sharing and photo printing service also has an awesome app that allows you to print off 50 of your favorite snaps for free each month. Just scan through your photos and order some free prints.
If you’re spending the perfect night in, alone, then chances are you’re single. As much as you might rejoice at that fact, I bet you’d like having a perfect night in boyfriend, or girlfriend, with you to Netflix and Chill with. If that’s the case, download Tinder and get talking. Although I can’t promise you’ll meet the man or woman of your dreams, there’s always the chance you’ll find someone to connect with and start something amazing. Even if you don’t, you might still find you enjoy spreading your net and speaking to new people.
The Perfect Night In
A “perfect night in” is hard to define, but I think you’ll agree that both food and a good film are essentials. The rest is up to you. But with the wealth of amazing apps out there, you need never be bored again, no matter how much time you want to spend on your own.
