COVID-19 has put a damper on people’s date nights as they sit for weeks in their home isolated from the restaurants, movie theaters, and other fun trips many couples use for date night escapes.
We understand you have cabin fever, but there are many ways you can still enjoy date night without leaving your home or even virtually. Date night is just a fun evening designed to bring you and your significant other together and release the stress of life.
We’ve put together five fun date night ideas you can do within your home.
Enjoy Candlelit Dinner
Is there anything more romantic than a candlelit dinner and pleasant conversation. You don’t need a fancy restaurant. Prepare something special together and sit at your kitchen table with the lights off and only the soft glow of candles or decor lights.
Have a few glasses of wine and end the night with your favorite movie. If you’re separated, then do it virtually through Zoom or other video conference programs. Cook the same meal and talk via phone or laptop.
What’s important is that you’re together and enjoying each other.
Wine and Beer Tasting
If you want to have fun and get a little tipsy at the same time, then create a wine and beer tasting for date night. Each of you goes out and buy a variety of beers and wines and taste them together. You’ll laugh as one loves the drink and the other makes a disgusted face.
If you’re doing it virtually, then tell each other what drinks to get and see each other’s reactions. We guarantee after a few tastings, you’ll feel great and have a fun evening.
Create a Drive-In Theater in Your Backyard
The days of drive-in theaters may be over, but with theaters closed, you can relive the glory days in your backyard. All you need is a large sheet you can put up and projector. There are many available and some places even rent them out.
Pull your car up or set up a few chairs and watch classic drive-in movies or your favorite hits without ever leaving your house. Have some drinks and pop some popcorn for an amazing date night.
Plan a Future Vacation
COVID-19 may have put a dampener on summer vacations, but this will be temporary. Why not look ahead and talk about places you’d love to visit for your dream vacation.
Get on your laptops or your phone and discover amazing places in the world. Check out hotels and places to eat. Talk about all the different ideas and places you’d like to visit.
You don’t need to make any decisions. You explore each other’s fantasy vacations and get great ideas for your next trip.
Binge Watch A New Show
With streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney +, hundreds of television shows and movies are available to watch from beginning to end. You can binge-watch the Star Wars movies or a series you’ve both been interested in, but never had the time to watch.
Enjoy them with a few glasses of wine and cuddle on the couch.
