The Ultimate Night In

A night in with your best friends can be so much better than a night out! Here are some of our ideas on how to make sure you have the ultimate night in.

1. Secure The Best Room In The House

If you live by yourself then this isn’t a problem, but if you live with flatmates or at home with your family then you need to make sure you secure the perfect spot. For the ultimate night in you want the room with the biggest TV and the comfiest sofa to jump on!

2. Snacks And Drinks

Snacks and drinks are essential for all good nights in – whatever your favourite nibbles may be; make sure you have plenty of them. Or get a range of takeaway menus so everyone can order their favourite cuisine.

3. Good Company

It seems like an obvious one, but the ultimate night in needs the ultimate people. As you’re all going to be in one room together for the majority of the evening, make sure you invite a group of friends who all get on.

4. Turn Your Phones Off

Once you’ve got a good group of friends together turn your phones off. It’s easy to be distracted by the various apps on our phones these days, so turn them off and be in the moment with your friends for just one evening.

5. Netflix

Or Amazon Prime or just some old fashioned DVDs – however you get them, get some good films!

6. Board Games

When the movie marathon ends move on to the board games. We recommend all the classics; Scrabble, Monopoly, Articulate… you know.

7. Computer Games

And when you get bored of the board games, move on to computer games! It could be Guitar Hero, Football Manager or Sing Star – whatever floats your boat.

8. Theme It

If you want to get really fancy then give your night in a theme. Everyone gets to dress up and you can have some fun decorating the room accordingly.

9. Capture The Moment

Ok ok, so your phones are now off… but maybe just put them on silent so you can take some photos of your friends all together.

10. Create A Playlist

Get all of your friends to tell you three to five of their favourite songs before they come round. Add all the songs to a playlist and put it on shuffle throughout the evening, then each time a song comes on the group have to guess who picked it.
