Ideas For A Date Night At Home
1/8 Go on a virtual museum tour
With travel cancelled and museums and galleries closed, exhibitions and tours have moved online––which is great news for those looking to get a culture fix at home. Ditch the long lines and spend the night "touring" around different museums, from New York, Paris to Hong Kong. You and your partner can discover and admire numerous art pieces from different eras and artists.
2/8 Cook a meal together
Dining out may be your go-to option for a date, but cooking a meal together might actually just be better. Besides spending the time together, it's also a great way to show off your cooking skills. Or if you're a novice, you can learn from one another and pick up a new skill instead. Challenge yourselves by trying out new dishes or even recreating your favourite delights for an added layer of fun.
3/8 Feast on takeaway food
If you're not up for cooking, no problem––there are loads of takeaway options to choose from. Restaurants are offering more hero dishes that are just as delicious as what you could get from dining in, and by ordering takeaway, you're essentially also helping struggling F&B businesses.
Complete your takeaway dinner date by ordering from one of these alcohol delivery services that will bring the bar to you. Fancy adding cheese to go with your wine? There's also a lot on offer. Finally, a date isn't complete without the sweetest desserts.
Who said takeaway service won't give you a full course meal?

4/8 Enjoy game night
No doubt, playing a game is a fun activity to do together, but it's also a great stress reliever. Cast away those quarantine blues and choose from classic two-player games like Scrabble, Monopoly, and chess.
But as they say, the more the merrier. You can also try having a double date using Skype or Zoom and play Pictionary or charades together with your friends. If tech-savvy is more up your ally, then consider video games, where you have an array of options to choose from.

5/8 Have a workout session
Don't let your home workout be a solo activity. Make your date more fun and healthy by doing cardio workouts together. Fulfil those fitness goals and stay in shape even while at home.
There are tons of different exercises to choose from such as dancing, rope skipping, and push-ups. Or transform simple household chores into workout sessions. You can also sign up for regular online workout classes to keep your heart pounding.

6/8 Host a spa night
Home is the best place to rest and relax. Recreate your own spa experience with your special someone in a more intimate set-up. Lighten up the ambience with scented candles or a diffuser, drop your favourite bath bomb, prepare those essential oils, and sip on a glass of sparkling champagne or wine.
Not only is this a great activity to spend together, but it also helps keep you energised and ready for the next day.

7/8 Create your own makeshift cinema
Forget watching a movie from your laptop and bring the cinematic experience to another level.
You'll need a white wall to serve as the screen but if you don't have any, simply get large pieces of white cardboard. A white screen and mini-projector are easily available online. For the best viewing experience, blackout your windows too. And of course, don't forget the snacks.
Now, snuggle up and enjoy the night.
