Creative Date Ideas To Do At Home

Game Night


Get yourself one of the classic board games like Monopoly or Trouble, or download Heads Up on your phone! Card games like Uno are always fun to flex your competitive side, and there are even newer card games like We’re Not Really Strangers that allow you to connect on a deeper level while still having fun.

Mini Movie Night


Get a mini projector, some movie theater candy, popcorn and a blanket. Host a cozy movie night in your own home. This is way better than going to an actual theatre for a million reasons. You can pause the film to go to the bathroom, use your phone, and of course, make out stare-free if things get steamy.

Scrapbook Your Personal History


Whether your partner has a ton of baby pictures they want organized or you end up printing out the best of your college years from a Facebook album, you’ll have tons of fun scrapbooking together as you relive old memories and exchanged funny stories. It’s an intimate task, but also a great way to get to know someone a little bit deeper.

Fantasy Vacation Planning


This is definitely one for the long-time couples, y’all. Take some time to research your dream vacation, and lock in where you’d go, where you’d stay and all the activities you’d do. Then, put on your best salesperson face and try to “sell” the other person on your idea. Maybe it’ll just be for fun, maybe you two will end up booking your next trip!

DIY Portrait Time


Hang up a sheet, get some props from a dollar store, and have a little fun in your homemade photo booth! Get a disposable camera (or, better yet, an instant camera for an aesthetically pleasing throwback vibe) and make an afternoon out of it. This is also a great way to ensure your partner ends up posting you on their IG feed, wink wink!

Chef It Up


Pick a family favorite dinner or dessert recipe and really try to nail it. Cooking together is an incredible bonding experience! Or, if you and your boo are more competitive, make the same dish separately and invite some friends over to decide who is the best chef, Chopped style. We’re rooting for you!

Spa Day


Pick up some fancy bath supplies or massage oils, light some candles and try to find a copy of that CD every massage place has that’s just bird noises over Mozart. Bonus points for plush robes, cozy slippers and face masks!

Become Bartenders


Head to the liquor store and pick up some funky liquors you wouldn’t normally go for. Then, go home and try to make each other a signature cocktail or shot. Who knows, you might just whip up the drink that will get served at your future wedding reception! If your boo already is a bartender IRL, they’ll have a big advantage—but at least you’ll get to enjoy their drinks!

Get Crafty


Head out to a craft store and pick out the first kit that seems interesting. Spend a few hours painting models, making sand art, braiding friendship bracelets or trying your hand at sculpting. When you’re done, you’ll have a (probably bad-looking, but still sentimental) craft to remember your time!

Indoor Scavenger Hunt


Grab a pack of plastic Easter eggs (or any other small object) and label each with a compliment, secret or coupon for a service (You know the kind!). Hide them around your home and dare your date to find them all.

DIY A Wine Tasting


Stock up on some wines (some of your faves plus a few you’ve never tried before) from the store or an online alcohol delivery service and pour them all into different glasses. Then, have your boo come over for an at-home wine tasting! Compare faves and see if you can’t find your new go-to date night bottle. Make sure to have charcuterie on-hand, too!

Blind Taste Test


Pick a category—water bottles, soda, fast food fries, chocolate bars, etc.—and buy multiple well-known versions. Then, have one partner try them all blindfolded and rate them or guess which is which. This might sound silly, but you’ll be surprised how into it you both get! Especially when you realize you actually hate the taste of your ~favorite water~ in comparison to the one you never buy.
