Finding yourselves stuck at home instead of enjoying a wild Friday night out is a great opportunity to enjoy each other’s company without distractions. Have fun with some stay-at-home date night ideas and see what else you can come up with. You might find you never want to leave the house for date night again!
When is the last time the two of you sat down for a good old-fashioned card game? Such a simple idea could lead to an evening of remembering when date nights were just that…simple.
Playing a game of cards together is bound to evoke giggles and plenty of face-to-face interaction. Love their eyes? Enjoy them for hours over a game of gin or go fish.
Candle Lit Dinner
A candle-lit dinner at home can be just as romantic as dining out without the price tag or other people interfering with your time.
Treat the evening just as you would if you were going out. Dress to impress, light some candles, and pour the wine. Order in unless cooking together sounds like a lot of fun. Or better yet, tell your better half to sit back and relax while they watch you cook.
Tastings at Home
Wine tastings and other tastings such as bourbons and whiskeys have gained a lot of popularity as an option for an evening out.
Why not do the same at home? Choose your liquor or wine of choice and have some fun with it. Each of you could choose two bottles to sample. Keep some water and crackers on hand for cleansing the palate in between drinks.
Go all out and set it up with pretty glasses and snacks to pair with each drink. Keep track of what you enjoy and it may be the beginning of an impressive liquor collection.
You only need two people to start a book club! Plan ahead for this date night so you will have both read a chapter or two to discuss.
Cozy up by the fire and talk about your new book while sipping wine and eating popcorn. You’ll be exercising your brains while growing closer and having fun. It’s a win-win.
Gather some art supplies and paint canvases for each other. You don’t have to be a Van Gogh to create a masterpiece that your partner will cherish.
Find a business that sells unfinished pottery and paint decorative bowls together. Adding your initials and the date will make a romantic keepsake.
It’s the fun you’ll have experiencing art projects together and the memories you’ll create that really matter.
Do you both love desserts and baked goods? Have some fun going all out and try baking something you’ve never tried making before.
Maybe a French pastry or homemade croissants? Or how about rolling out a pie? Making messes together is a guarantee for fun and romance.
With these creative stay-at-home date night ideas, we’re sure you’ll soon find staying home is a beautiful thing. Have some fun with your significant other!
