At-home date ideas
With rules ever-changing and restrictions becoming tighter, there’s no better time to start at-home date nights! We’ve been stuck in our homes for a while, so here’s our best ideas for at-home date nights so you can keep the love going in your home.
Have a backyard picnic
Although the days are drawing colder, unpack the Winter blankets and wrap up in the garden with candles or lanterns and if you can, a fire pit. Throw in some hot food and a warm red and you’ve got yourself a perfect evening of food and chatting, hopefully under a clear night sky.
Have a game night
One of our favorite ways to have a date night at home. Open a bottle of wine, set out a cheese board, and challenge each other to a bet. Backgammon used to be our favorite game, but lately we’ve been really into playing cards.
A little bit of competition can also be a great aphrodisiac! If you want to host a double date, a game night is a fantastic at home date night idea for a group date or a double date, adhering to the latest guidelines of course.
Run a tasting night
Another one of our favorite staying in date night ideas is to have a tasting party. Pick any theme: whiskey, ice cream, cookies, chocolate, whatever and lay out a bunch of different options. To make it extra fun, create “tasting stations” with everything needed for the tasting party laid out and a sheet of paper to take “tasting notes”.
Challenge each other to a cook off
Getting competitive can be a great relationship booster! Adding some competition to your date ideas at home is such a great way to spice things up and boost your bond!
Instead of the standard cooking with each other, why not challenge each other to a cook off! You can choose a specific course to each create (like an appetizer or dessert) or pick a particular ingredient that each person has to incorporate into whatever they make. For example, the ingredient could be pickles and then each person comes with a creative dish that incorporates pickles in some way or a three course dinner incorporating pickles into every course.
Plan a dream trip
What better way to spend an evening than planning your dream trip for when everything gets back to ‘normal’. We love scouting locations on Pinterest, Instagram, or look through our many travel books.
For a spin on this, try giving yourselves a budget and see what kind of trip you can plan on that budget. You’ll be surprised what you can come up with when you’re creative! Let’s hope it’s not too long before we can make our dream trips happen.
