You can’t go out to a restaurant…but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your weekly date night! Try these unique ideas for a fun date night at home, then tag us on social media (@shanecompany) with your own successful date nights!
1. Private Movie Theater
Pop that popcorn, because it’s movie night! Set up all your favorite snacks and relax on the couch for a classic date that never goes out of style. We recommend indulging in your nostalgic side by building a pillow or blanket fort, or setting up twinkle lights for ambiance. Then, pick a movie or two you’ve been dying to see and let the fun begin.
2. The Only Restaurant in Town
Restaurants are closed, but you can still enjoy a night in by bringing your favorite restaurant to you. Light some candles, set the table, and order a few meals from a local spot for delivery or takeout. Serving each course like you would in a restaurant helps to make this truly feel like your favorite date. We also recommend putting on some classical music (or even restaurant chatter — do a quick YouTube search to find some lovely white noise) for full effect.
3. Game Night
Luckily for us, card and board games simply never go out of style. Bring out all your old favorites and set up some snacks for a long night of friendly competition between you and your sweetheart. Whether it’s Monopoly, spades, charades, or another game, you’re sure to have a good time with this easy date night.
4. Indoor Campout
Bring the outdoors to you by setting up a campsite — right inside your home! If you have a fireplace, now’s the perfect time to break out the s’mores. Turn off all the lights and only rely on flashlights and candles to create the illusion of spending an evening in the great outdoors.
5. Homemade Pizza Night
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that pizza is always a good choice for dinner. Switch it up by making your own dough or buying it premade, then play around with your favorite toppings and cheeses for a fun activity you can do together. Psst — if you’re a beer drinker, adding a “flight” of new ones to try can take this date night up a notch.
