Ten at-home date night ideas
I’m here to share with you 10 at-home date night ideas that you can plan right now! Just in case this pandemic has you and your partner going crazy.
Netflix and Chill
Literally and figurately, right? But if you want to relax on the couch and binge-watch some t.v. while eating some popcorn here are some of my favorite shows:
- Sex Education
- Stranger Things
- Mad Men
- Parks and Rec
- The Crown
- Wild Wild Country
- Derby Girls
Go Camping in Your Livingroom
I know, I know. You might think that this is a silly idea, but building a fortress when you were little was super exciting, so how about you do this again! Better yet, you can build it, decorate it with some Christmas lights, and then watch your favorite show in there 😛
Cook a Delicious Meal Together
Cooking together can be a very romantic thing! You can make your favorite dish, or be adventurous and try something new.
You can find plenty of cool and easy recipes on Pinterest, and you can even search based on what you currently have in your pantry.
Take a look at some romantic photos of one of my couples cooking some delicious pasta!
Take a Bath Together
This one is one of my favorites. Not only is intimate and romantic, but it will allow you to relax and decompress, and we all need a bit of that during these uncertain times.
Light some candles and play some relaxing music. This could be what you two need to relax and reconnect.
Play a Game
A little bit of competition could be fun! So who’s better at playing games? Make it a bit more interesting and add some rules! For example, the loser can give the winner a full-body massage.
Take a look at Old Photos
This could be funny and yet nostalgic. Get those photos out and go down memory lane!
Also, this could be the time to get those vacation photos into a book.
I use Blurb to create all my personal vacation books. The quality is good and they are somehow easy to design.
Do your Own Photoshoot!
Currently, we are living through a pandemic and we need to keep social distance and self-quarantine. That means that you can’t get your favorite photographer (ahem, that would be me) to get some awesome photos of the two of you, but what you can do is have some fun with your iPhone!
Go ahead and let your partner take some cool, sexy photos of you! Play around! Delete, and do it again! This is just for fun, but you might even surprise yourself and get some pretty cool photos to remember this time.
Here are some of my favorite phone apps:
Take a Virtual Tour
You might not be able to leave your house, but thanks to the internet, now we can virtually visit museums, monuments and famous locations around the world!
Google Arts & Culture is the perfect place to join tons of virtual tours all around the globe. Get some popcorn and enjoy the show!
Do some Yoga or Meditation Together
Friend, this is not just something to do together during a pandemic. This is something that you should add to your daily routine no matter what.
The benefits of yoga and meditation have been researched and studied for decades and they all agree on it: Yoga and meditation improve your mood, relax your body and helps clear your mind.
There are many studios across the world that currently are offering online classes, but here are my favorites:
- Yoga Girl is currently offering some free classes.
- Headspace my favorite meditation app has some free resources to help you calm your mind.
