The Best At Home Date Night Ideas (Volume 1)

Forget the expensive dinner reservations and navigating through crowds, your home just became the hottest date spot in town! At-home dates aren't just budget-friendly, but they're also super romantic and fun because you can create a truly unique and personal experience - all from the comfort of your own home. Whether you're looking for a luxurious romantic date, a cozy night-in, or a fun adventure that will have you both laughing, you can make it happen at home. These are also the perfect quarantine activities for couples!

Here are some of our favorite at-home dates:

at home date ideas

1.  Build a fort

Who says forts aren't for grown ups? Let your inner child loose and create your own blanket kingdom! Bring in some treats and a laptop to play your favorite movie and you'll have the cutest date night.

2.  Blind food tasting

Now is the time to have a little fun with your food! Gather an assortment of different types of food (e.g. chocolate, fruit, beer), blindfold your partner, and have them taste and guess what they're eating. 

3.  At-home paint night

Thanks to painting tutorials on Youtube (including Bob Ross!), you can have an epic paint night at home. All you need is some paint and canvas and then follow along with the tutorial instructions.

4.  Have a virtual double date 

Skype, Zoom, and FaceTime all make it possible to have virtual double dates with your crew. Grab some wine and enjoy catching up with your friends.
