Stay-at-home date ideas during coronavirus lockdown

Now that we’ve been requested to stay at home due to coronavirus, it can be difficult coming up with ways to spend time as a couple away from your regular routine. Date night is an essential part of any relationship. According to The Knot, couples who have regular date nights have more successful marriages.

Since we can’t go out at the moment, why not have stay-at-home date night? Below are some ideas to get you started.

1. Watch a movie or series 

This has to be the simplest and most achievable date idea when you’re stuck indoors. Pick a movie you’ve wanted to watch or an old series you’d love to rewatch to relive your dating days and enjoy under a warm blanket with a bowl of popcorn and glass of wine.

2. Travel the world

Even though you can’t pull out your passport to physically travel the world, you can still do so from the comfort of your home. There are various documentaries online about different cities around the world, their history, cities you must see, etc. You could also cook a meal from a country you’d like to travel to.

3. Have a game night

This is another fun way to have a date night at home. You can play board games like scrabble or play a video game and compete against each other. Make snacks to accompany your game night and let out your competitive side.

4. Go dancing

Select music that you both enjoy and dance the night away. If you used to go for dance class, this can be a great opportunity to practice. Dress up and move the furniture out of the way to transform your sitting room into a dance floor. 

5. Turn your bedroom into a hotel room

There’s something about spending the night in a hotel room that is so relaxing. You get to leave your concerns at home so that you can enjoy each other’s company. You can simulate a night in a bedroom by transforming your bedroom into a luxurious hotel room. Change the sheets. Put out candles. If you have flowers on hand, use them to decorate your bedroom. You can have either breakfast or dinner and desert in bed like you would in a real life hotel.
