At-Home Date Night Ideas for Parents

Missing the nights out with your sweetie? Restore the romance with these sweet and simple at-home date night ideas for parents.

You’re not ready to go out, but you’re also tired of calling binge-watching another series on Netflix “date night.” From trivia nights to at-home mixology classes, schedule one of these options this holiday season and escape the monotony of quarantine.

Order a special dinner

Skip dinner with the kids and plan a meal just for you two. You can order takeout from one of your favorite local restaurants. While you’re at it, why not set up the table and light some candles, too?

Do a puzzle together

After a long day, break out a puzzle that you can work on together and still be able to have a good conversation. Consider buying a puzzle roll mat so you can save puzzling for a future date night — and not worry about the kids ruining it!

Host a virtual game night

You can still connect with your friends without leaving the house. If you’re missing game night together, try out some virtual gaming apps like Houseparty and Jackbox Games. We suggest video chatting at the same time to make the experience even more fun.

Have a movie marathon

Instead of binge-watching your current show obsession, pop some popcorn and watch a few flicks. Make it a themed movie night so you can watch two or three similar movies together. Some ideas include horror films, ’90s night or movie musicals.

Sip and paint

If you don’t feel like spending so much money, recreate the Sip and Paint experience at home. Buy your art materials and a bottle of wine as you follow along with this tutorial on YouTube. Search eventbrite.com, too, to find Sip and Paint classes.
