Some married or cohabitating couples who are stuck at home with nowhere to go spend their days without really taking time for one another. Many might say romance has been lacking in their relationships since quarantine began — with nowhere to go on dates, couples may not get as many chances to celebrate their love. That’s were quarantine date night comes in.
We’ve rounded up 15 of the greatest quarantine date night ideas for couples in need of a little spark to bring the romance back.
1. Craft New Home Decor
Tap into your DIY knowledge and create fun crafts with your significant other one night after dinner. You can create something that will serve a purpose in your home or that just looks nice and is fun to make. Regardless, it’ll get the two of you talking, laughing and cooperating.
2. Play a Board Game
Bring back family game night by trying out a board or card game you’ve never played before with your partner. It gives you something to learn and experience for the first time together. Whether you choose a new game or an old favorite, you’re sure to have a great time.
3. Complete a Puzzle
Puzzles can stimulate your brain and challenge you to think critically. They can also open up communication channels between you and your partner as you cooperate to solve them. Doing puzzles can boost your short-term memory and problem-solving skills, meaning you can have fun and reap health benefits at once.
4. Tackle a Home Improvement Project
Some couples are bound to be productive in everything they do. Around 65% of people want to make home improvements in the future. If there’s a DIY project you’ve been putting off that you and your partner can complete together, why not do it? Have fun painting a wall or setting up shelves. Brightening the appearance of your home can create lasting memories and improve your curb appeal all at once.
5. Recreate a Theater
Set up blankets on the floor. Pop some popcorn and turn out all the lights. With streaming services, your choices of movies are endless. Choose a film that neither of you has seen before and get your favorite candy ready.
6. Try a New Workout
Is there a type of exercise neither of you has tried before? Yoga and HIIT (high-intensity interval training) are great options for couples who want to get in a quick and exciting workout without spending too much time, and you can find tutorials for them online easily. Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can improve heart function and safeguard your health for the future.
7. Cook a Full Meal
While you’re likely cooking every night anyway, you can use this date night idea as an excuse to cook a full-course meal. Though it might take some work and plenty of preparation, you and your sweetheart can create an appetizer, a soup or salad, the main dish, and its subsequent sides and dessert.
8. Do Something Virtually
You and your partner can attend a free webinar together. You could also try an interactive activity like challenging an escape room or visiting a museum. Participating in these activities online can make you look forward to doing them in person again before too long.
9. Take a Walk
Consider visiting a public park and taking a stroll together. You can stay active while enjoying the beauty of nature and fresh air. Just remember to be as safe as possible and refer to your area’s mandates to know what’s permitted and what should be avoided.
10. Play a Co-Op Game
You and your partner can look into cooperating in video games together. You could try “Overcooked,” which requires cooperation between you and your sweetheart to keep your virtual restaurant running smoothly.
If you’re looking for something more competitive, consider “Mario Kart” — although playing it can make you frustrated with one another because of all the blue and red shells threatening to sabotage someone’s lead!
11. Declutter Your Home
While it might not be the most romantic suggestion on this list, decluttering your space is a great way to spend time together. As you go through your old things, you can reminisce while looking for something to give away or throw out. The freed-up space will allow you to create new memories together.
12. Double Date via Video Chat
It’s likely been a while since you’ve safely seen your friends. Why not have a picnic in your living room, set up the webcam and catch up? You can share a meal, drinks and conversation across the miles.
13. Plan Something
Whether it’s a long-awaited vacation or your upcoming wedding, planning something with your partner can be an enjoyable experience that leaves you excited and hopeful for the future. It may also eliminate any stress you’ve been feeling by not taking action before.
14. Make Art Together
Consider collaborating on one canvas or having a competition to see whose rendition of a landscape is good enough to hang on the wall. For a chaotic art experience, you can take turns painting a canvas as it’s passed back and forth.
15. Recreate Your First Date
Try to recall everything from your first date. What did you eat? What did you wear? Implement as many things you can remember into this recreation. The most crucial part is having fun and seeing how far your love has come.
