Missing the nights out with your sweetie? Restore the romance with these sweet and simple at-home date night ideas.
- Play a game together. Whether something high-tech or low-tech, let the friendly competition take your mind of your daily demands.
- Cuddle up outside and stargaze.
- Get dressed up for a fancy candlelight dinner from your favorite takeout place. Maybe it’s after the kids go to bed or you could set them up with their own special feast and a new movie.
- Plan a morning date with a cup of coffee or tea and start your day by connecting.
- Put a puzzle together.
- Stream a new television series like the international obsession, Tiger King.
- Set up your own paint and sip experience. As you might expect, YouTube has plenty of painting tutorials.
- Have a tasting party. Maybe you and partner are into wine, craft beers, whiskey, chocolate or something else entirely, buy a sampling of new things to try.
- Reminisce with music. Take turns playing old tunes and share why you like it or the memories connected to moments in your life.
- Organize a virtual couples date to connect with friends. Maybe you just chat with other adults or try out virtual gaming apps like Houseparty or Jackbox Games.
- Destress and connect with a virtual yoga class.
- Learn something new together. Try out a new hobby or a new recipe!

- Get your favorite dessert delivered or bake something special together.
Bonus social distancing idea – If you have kids old enough to stay home without you or little ones that enjoy napping in the car, go for a drive in a new-to-you neighborhood. Explore home design and garden features you both like and pick out the house you might own if you lived in that neighborhood.
