At home dating night ideas
We all have a fun night out in the city with our partners. Thankfully, having a good time at home is not impossible. Explore some useful and fun home dating night ideas here.
Netflix And Chill
This is one of the easiest date night ideas to run. First, let the children go to bed. Then pop popcorn, snuggle under a warm blanket on the couch and launch Netflix or other streaming service. This is a great time to focus on the show you are watching together.
Create a storm
Cooking at home with each other is a fun romantic dating night activity. And that’s more than dinner. You can make a gourmet breakfast with all the trimmings, a super lunch or skip it all and head straight towards some decadent desserts with cupcakes or even multi-layered cakes. You can choose the recipe to make for each other, or you can make your own pizza or burger night.
Break out the board game and drink wine. I just got into game mode tonight. If the board game is not your style, you can pull out the deck of cards to learn Gin Rummy or do a few rounds of strip poker. Go Fish is a classic game and video games are still games. There is a marathon round of Mario Kart. The loser cooks.
This prepares you a bit in the form of buying a couple’s quiz book or printing a fun quiz. If printing is not possible, search on a mobile phone or tablet and share the results. With the idea of this date, you can learn about each other’s individuality and preferences in a random area.
A little reading time
The library is a good friend of a broken book. Bring your sweets to the library and pick books for each other. Then have a cup of coffee and curl up for a quiet afternoon reading by the window. You can upset things by reading each other aloud or getting cookbooks to try out some new recipes. The sky is the limit associated with books.
Bake some cookies and pull out that 1000 jigsaw puzzles for a fun challenge. If there are no puzzles available, you can substitute a sudoku or crossword puzzle or word search puzzle book. Take a timed challenge for who can find the most words or who can get Rubik’s Cube and scramble it for hours of fun.
Pack sandwiches, leftover pizzas, fruits in plastic glasses and go out outdoors from the backyard with a blanket. When I finish eating, I lie down and watch the fluffy clouds pass by, or stare at the stars when it gets dark.
Tasting party of two people
Make a special trip to the store for some needed items, and host your own tasting party. Have a cheese or fruit plate to clean the pallet and open two or three bottles of wine or gourmet beer. If alcohol is not yours, or you want to mix things up, hold some new kinds of chocolate tasting parties or find out new favorites using plenty of weird ice cream flavors.
We can all spend a little trip to the spa, so bring your spa home. Soak in soothing oil baths with scented candles, and then massage each other to a facial mask and manipedy, before scrubbing some hydration lotions together.
Choose a theme (Italian, Spanish, Christmas, Chocolate, Tuesday) and check the night around it. For example, before having a classic English dinner with an English-themed, delicious beer with roasts and potatoes, watch some Jane Austen classic while sipping a small sandwich while drinking tea. It may involve children as it becomes creative.
Break the record
Put away a copy of the Guinness Book of Copy and pick one to break. Spend the whole night trying to break it or trying each other to see if someone can get the closest to breaking it. If you succeed, you will have something to enliven at the next family reunion.
Time to camp out
Tents and sleeping bags can be pulled out of storage and you can create a campsite in the backyard for adventure. If it’s too cold, make a coffin in the living room and curl it up with cozy blankets and all the pillows you own. Use whipped cream and wine instead of small.
Pretend to turn off the light all night (except of course the heater during the winter). I cook and eat dinner (or take home) with candlelight, then talk to each other, do puzzles, and hug by the fireplace. You can also explore the house with a flashlight or play hidden.
Wine and paint
Or engraving, drawing, glue etc. Basically we open some wine and spend the night in the arts. Buy some dollar store canvas and paint, check out the YouTube tutorials, become clever and draw portraits of each other. You can decorate the coffee mugs for each other or learn new skills like sewing and knitting. If you still can not appeal to the other party, please paint the body paint.
