Date Nights At Home
Valentine’s ideas from the comfort of your own home
Just because our social life is dead, doesn’t mean our love lives have to be. If you live with bae and you are bored of rewatching the same crappy TV shows again and again, we have got some fun date night ideas you can do at home.
Plus, it might actually stop you from hating each other by the time you can go out with the girls again.

- Try a new takeaway cuisine and order for each other
- Make your own pizzas

1. Boozy Board Games
Monopoly goes on forever, but introduce shots every time you pass go and suddenly it gets a little more interesting. Mix up your Mr & Mrs game with drinking forfeits, or drink three fingers whenever someone accuses Professor Plum in the billiard room. Whatever the game, there’s an easy way to introduce a little booze.
2. Stay at home spa
Make your own spa treatments and get to work on some well-needed couples massages. After all, who ISN’T stressed at the minute? Massages and foot rubs are seriously called for right now.
3. Come dine with me
Split the courses between the two of you and get your Gordon Ramsey on. Keep the meals a secret and then judge each other’s courses out of ten. Brutal, but fun and tasty (if you manage not to burn anything).
4. Painting party
Warning: this can cause serious offence. Take a canvas or big piece of paper and sit across from each other. You have half an hour to paint a portrait of bae. Put an alarm on your phone and turn your paintings around when the time is up.
5. Cheese and wine night
Nothing says ‘Date night at home’ like a cheese and wine night. Whether you are a blue cheese kind of girl or a cheddar queen, everyone loves a reason to indulge. Pop a camembert in the oven, tear open the crackers and pour yourself a massive glass of red.
6. Bake Off
Challenge your other half to a baking competition and judge each other’s cakes. You can even send photos of the finished pieces to your group chat and get them to vote on the best showstopper. (Plus you have loads of cake to eat after.)
7. Build a blanket fort
Okay this one might be a bit cheesy, but it’s still fun. Run a washing line or piece of string across your living room and drape a sheet or blanket over it. Fill it with cushions, stock up on snacks and watch your favourite film together.
8. Try a new takeaway
Whether you’ve never tried Thai or you fancy something French, a night in is the perfect excuse. Find a highly rated takeaway online and choose dishes for each other to try.
9. Make your own pizzas
Creating your own pizza from scratch is pretty easy and SO satisfying. Add your favourite toppings and enjoy. You can even add controversial stuff like pineapple without judgement from the delivery driver.
10. Karaoke night
Karaoke is the the ultimate way to spend your date nights at home. Crank up your favourite tunes, have a couple of drinks and just sing your heart out all night. The upside of singing karaoke at home is that you don’t have to choose the crowd pleasers, just pick the songs you love.
Just because you can’t leave the house, doesn’t mean that you and your partner can’t dress us for your date night. (Also, that stained bed t-shirt you got free on a bar crawl 5 years ago is looking a little grubby.)
We’ve rounded up some cute date night outfits for your big night in.
