Finding indoor couples’ activities and creating at-home date nights are great ways for partners to practice spending quality time together.
Indoor dates are important for a healthy relationship, as it helps couples to find time to reconnect and reignite the flames of desire, passion, and play.
Here are some fun indoor date ideas for couples:
1. Cook a Restaurant-Quality Meal
Look up recipes from your favorite chefs and make an evening out of it. Whatever you make, make it together. This will make you feel so much more accomplished when you sit down and share a meal you prepared together than if you simply wait for a waiter to bring it to you at a restaurant.
2. Go Indoor Camping
Grab a couple of flat sheets or blankets from the linen closet and turn your living room into your own private campsite. If you’re lucky enough to have an indoor fireplace, light it up and roast some marshmallows over the open flame. You can share ghost stories, share camping memories from your childhood, or get cozy in your makeshift tent.
3. Game Night
Card games, ludo, scrabble, chess, etc. are a fun way to get competitive with your significant other. You can also go with a classic, like Truth or Dare or Never Have I Ever, to get adventurous and learn something new about each other.
4. Read a book together
Start your own book club by reading a book aloud together. Pick a book you both want to read, or maybe take turns reading each other’s all-time favourite book. It might feel ridiculous at first to read out loud, but before long you’ll get into the story and you won’t be able to put the book down.
5. Set up a beer or wine tasting
Instead of going to the brewery or winery, drinking responsibly by hosting your own tasting at home can save you some money. Pick up a few local cans or bottles, pour up a few glasses, and cheers to a fun and safe tasting tour.
6. Do a puzzle
Completing a puzzle together can be a rewarding and satisfying way for couples to spend an evening. There are plenty of puzzles out there for the Disney-loving, animal-obsessed, or travel-addicted couple to enjoy.
7. Workout together
Couples that sweat together, stay together. Pick a workout and get sweaty from the comfort of your home. Working out together not only makes you stronger as an individual, but it can also strengthen your bond as a couple. Plus, you can cool off with a shower together afterward.
8. Stream a concert
There are so many live concerts available to stream online, both new and old. Stream your favorite and make a night out of it. Get popcorn, beers, and any other concert-themed snacks and cozy up on the couch as you watch an electrifying live performance from your favorite band. Turn the volume up loud to make it feel more real. And, of course, dance!
9. Recreate your favourite date at home
This works best if you switch off and both of you recreate your favorite date nights for one another. Order takeout from the place where you went on your first date, or listen to a band you saw together. If you want to go the extra mile, try to find and wear the outfit that you wore to your favorite date!
10. Create a spa at home
Inhale, exhale, and unwind together with a little self-care. Put on a robe, and apply your favourite face mask. You can even take turns giving each other massages.
11. Play a video game
If your partner spends hours on their gaming device, have them teach you their favorite video game so you can play together. It’ll help you understand why they spend all their time playing games online, and you might even find it enjoyable and start playing with them regularly.
