You don’t need to travel or spend loads of money to enjoy a fun and creative date.

The concept of the at-home date is simple: if you can’t go out on the town, get creative and adaptable and come up with a fun, one-on-one activity you can do with your date without having to leave the house.

The standard dinner-and-a-movie date night gets dull after a few rounds — especially when the cineplex is shut down due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and you’ve practically memorized your favorite restaurant’s take-out menu. Whether you’re looking for quarantine-friendly date ideas, the weather outside makes you want to hunker down, your wallet is feeling light, or you just prefer to stay indoors, we have a few great romantic indoor date ideas to fit the bill.

Take a Bubble Bath

Plenty of people have an ample tub, or even a bathroom Jacuzzi, that they never ever use; in their madcap life, they rely exclusively on the efficiency of their shower. So take a break from the routine, slow things down, and get romantic by lighting up some candles and soaking in a relaxing bubble bath with your partner.

Dance Your Heart Out

When was the last time you and your partner danced together? Take your sweetie out for a few spins to tunes that bring back great memories. If you’ve got two left feet, search for “Dance Tutorial” on YouTube to learn some suave new steps. Dress the part, for extra pizzazz.

Project a Movie in The Backyard

This one takes a bit of an investment but you and your partner will reap the benefits all summer long. Set up a projector on a blank wall in your backyard and have an al fresco movie night complete with popcorn and comfy blankets.

Have a Tasting Party

Buy a few different wines, whiskies, or even root beers and do a tasting. Sip ‘em and savor the flavors; discuss your favorites. You can even do a tasting of foods, getting some different cheeses, or better yet, sausages and cured meats, and sampling the fare.

DIY a Personalized Pizza

Step away from the takeout menu and put down that phone: Making your own pizza at home is both a fun activity and a delicious at-home dinner date. If you’re feeling ambitious, make your own dough, or pick up a pre-made one from your local grocery store. Top it with all of your favorite fixings or make two personal-sized pies if your tastes are totally different.

Play Classic Card Games

Poker, War, Gin Rummy, Go Fish — all you need is a deck of cards and you have a full night of competition ahead of you. You can also play these games online if you want to make it a double date situation and bring some friends into the fun.

Do a Super Hard Puzzle

Working together on a task like this could take weeks, giving you both a sense of joint purpose. As you sit side-by-side you’ll organically talk and connect in ways you wouldn’t have just zoning out to the TV.


I don’t necessarily mean the sexy kind of role-playing, though that might be fun too. Here, the idea is more like playing a game where you slip into a character and improv an “event.” You can make it more”official” by sending your partner an invitation complete with the name of the event, the time, the place, and your partner’s character name, description, and role. Don’t forget to include a note to dress for the part. Then, get into character and have fun.

Do a Hot Sauce Challenge

Ever watch Youtuber Sean Evans interview famous people on Hot Ones? Here’s the premise: you try 10 increasingly hot sauces on chicken wings (the Kristen Bell episode reveals there are vegan versions) and you see how well you can hold your own as you tell stories to each other. Laugh at each other’s faces as you go through the heat, and see if you can outlast each other. Pro-tip: be sure to stock celery and maybe even some milk.

Stream a Concert

Whether you’re into pop, country, hip-hop, rock or something in between, chances are you can enjoy a live-streamed concert of one of your favorite artists from your living room. Many artists and even drag queens are playing virtual shows. Don’t forget to put on your favorite concert outfit and dance your heart out.
