I’m guessing you don’t have any idea how to make things fun for a date night at home. Here are some creative ones I think might make things fun for you and your partner.

1) Cook Something Special Date Night.

For this to be fun, the partner that does not normally cook should cook while the other one relaxes. This might end up with both of you eating something burnt for dinner, but it is a great story to tell. If you are both cooks even better, you can make it a cook off and if neither of you like cooking, just move to the next item on this list.

2) Throwback to Your First Date.

I got this idea from The Real Host, Jeannie Mai’s romantic proposal. Jeezy re-created the proposal he planned to give her on their vacation to Vietnam, which they did not get to go to due to the pandemic.

Now for us non-celebrities, a re-creation of a first date could be nice. This would take you down memory lane and give you a lot to talk about.

3) Zoom Double Date Night.

If you have a friend in need of a date idea. You could plan a double date with them and make it a fun competition.  You could swap stories, play games and have a nice meal together all on zoom.

4) Get Drunk Together Date Night.

This could be fun. Have a simple competition to see who can prepare the worst and best cocktails. This applies if you are not bartenders. Mix some drinks, have a laugh and talk, but prepare your minds for the morning hangover.

5) Game Night Date.

There is nothing new about this. It could be the easiest bonding exercise for couples. So, get your cards, scrabble boards, chess boards, or whatever works for you and enjoy a simple game night with your lover.
