Since we are all spending more time at home now and I’ve had several questions regarding date night ideas at home. I compiled some of our favorites along with some ideas we are planning on trying this year.
Back in April we decided to do a spa night. So we got a bubble bath ready, put on some relaxing music and put candles in our bathroom. We also gave each other a back massage. It was a great way to relax during a crazy season and a great way to spend time together since we weren’t able to go to a real spa.
Dinner and a movie in
Since we can’t really go to the movies right now, this one is a favorite of ours. We pick out a movie we want to watch and make a special dinner. Pop some popcorn and maybe bake some cookies and enjoy a movie night. To add some extra fun, try building a blanket fort around your TV. We did this during quarantine and it was great!
Car Picnic/Picnic in your backyard
This one is great for spring/summer nights. Several times in April and May we went to Chick Fil A and even our favorite pizza place in Frederick, MD and ordered to go food. We set up a blanket in the trunk of our car and ate our food together. You can also do this in your backyard during the nice warm days and make your own food for it.
Board Game Night
We love this one even when we aren’t in quarantine. We pick out a couple different board games, grab some snacks and play. It makes for some fun healthy competition. We even did this via zoom with my family too. Check out my other post on board games here.
Blind folded baker/ Bake off
We love baking in our house, but haven’t done this one yet. We plan on trying this one ASAP. You can blind fold your significant other and then bake something together, helping them with the baking.
Bowling in your hallway/mini golf at home
These two ideas are next on our lists to try. There are actual home bowling sets/mini golf sets you can find on amazon or you can make it fun and come up with stuff yourself. For bowling you can use plastic cups as the pins and a rubber ball for the bowling ball.
Star Gaze/ Bonfire with Smore’s
We love being outdoors in the evening during spring and fall. Grab yourself a blanket and some snacks and star gaze together. During the fall, we love using our bonfire outside and enjoying some Smore’s.
Coffee Tasting Night
If you love coffee this one will be fun! Grab some different samples of coffee and blind fold each other and try to guess the flavoring. Enjoy some biscotti or cookies during the process.
I hope that these date night ideas help you all during this time we are at home. Let me know in the comments if you all come up with some other fun ideas.
