Over the last few months, we’ve developed a deeper attachment to our sweatpants than we’d like to admit. Thanks to COVID, and now the colder weather rolling in, we think it’s safe to say that most of you would prefer to stay in! So… to help all of you love birds out there spend some quality time with both each other… and your beloved couch – here are 10 indoor date night ideas!

DO AN AT-HOME BEER/WINE TASTING

Almost every liquor store sells individual tallboys, grab a few funky looking cans that you’ve never tried before, or snag a few bottles of rose, red or white and “test” away! Heck, you can even virtually tour Napa Valley together.

SHARE SCREENS AND CATCH A FLICK

Netflix and chill, even in quarantine. With TeleParty, you can share a screen without sacrificing your legroom on the couch. It’s the perfect way to enjoy shows together on popular streaming platforms like HBO, Hulu, and Disney+ without having to leave the house.

HAVE AN AT HOME PAINT NIGHT

Split a bottle of wine and get in touch with your creative, more colourful sides! Head over to Amazon, order a few watercolour paints, some brushes, and a canvas, and have yourself a paint party. Need some inspo and a few tips? Why not get them from the one and only Bob Ross himself?

GET COMPETITIVE

This one should go without saying, but turn off the TV, and pull out that Twister mat! Play a round of the Jenga, or share screens and play a round of something on Jack Box. Do you even know your significant other if you’ve never played a game of high stakes game of Monopoly or chess together?

COOK TOGETHER – OR TOGETHER, APART

Spin the wheel! Select a recipe at random using Recipe Roulette.TV, and recreate it as best as you can! Whether you two are in the same space or feel like staying home in your respective apartments and are using Skype, Facetime or Zoom, you can still share the same candlelight meal.

GO TO THE “MUSEUM”

Alright, kids, fancy dress for this one is optional, but heavily encouraged! Grab a bottle of wine, and visit world-class museums like the Louvre’, the Smithsonian, and the Guggenheim with these free, online museum tours.

DO AN ESCAPE ROOM, ONLINE

Work together! Panic Room Online is a sharable, remote activity with dozens of different games that you can explore from your couch. Check it out with your significant other while together or separately simply by logging in to Zoom or Houseparty and selecting a room!

PLAY A ROUND OF TRIVIA 

Using the QuizUp App, go head-to-head with your special someone in a game of Trivia! Turn over your phones, place a bet, and test each other’s ability to answer random rapid-fire questions, or choose a topic and see who’s more quick-witted.

GET A VIRTUAL ‘JUST FOR FUN’ TAROT CARD READING 

Airbnb has a ton of really interesting online experiences – one of which is an online Tarot Card Reading with a self-proclaimed medium. Pick a date and time, log on, and see into each other’s future. Whether you believe in this stuff or not, it’s super fun to see what the cards have to say about things like your compatibility, careers, and astrological numbers.

“TRAVEL” AROUND THE WORLD

Google Earth, live cams, photo galleries. There are about a hundred ways to travel without going through airport security or hopping on a plane. Maybe a trip you had planned was derailed, or you just need to see something that isn’t the living room wall. Don that Tommy Bahama, climb aboard a magic area carpet and show each other the world.

There you have it, lovelies! 10 indoor date night ideas. Enjoy yourselves out there. Stay safe, stay warm, stay together!
