Just because we are trapped inside doesn’t mean a good date night is out the door. I personally love stay at home date nights because you can truly cater to the experience that you and significant other love. You make it casual or fancy the choice is up to you! Here are 18 at home date ideas that you’ll love!
Backyard or indoor picnic
You can never go wrong with a classic picnic for your at home date night. If the weather is nice where you live, head to the backyard with your favorite home cooked meal or even food from your favorite restaurant. You can even set the scene with a nice cozy blanket and some pillows on your living room floor!
I mean, who doesn’t love game night? Grab your favorite board games and/or gaming apps for the perfect at home game night. Here are a few of my favorites:
Movie night marathon
I love watching a good movie series that I haven’t seen in long time. Grab some popcorn and turn on your favorite movie series for a cozy movie night marathon at home with your significant other.
Cook off challenge
If you and your boo both love cooking, a cook off is something that you have to try! There’s nothing like a good friendly competition to kick off the night.
