Home Date Night Ideas

21st March 2020.

Didn’t you know staying in is the new going out? With everyone social distancing and isolating right now, we know it sucks to be missing out on your usual date nights with bae but who says you can’t still enjoy these things from the comfort of your own home? If we can dress up at Christmas to sit around the house with family eating turkey then we can definitely get dressed up to enjoy a night in now. Here are some of our favourite date night ideas that don’t involve you leaving the house.

Dinner & Drinks

You don’t have to miss out on nice meals out, SO many places are still delivering your fave foods straight to your door with no contact delivery. Set a time with bae to sit down and have a proper date. You can do your hair and makeup, dress up and even throw on some new heels. (Pssst, we’ve got 30% off everything.) If you don’t fancy splashing out on a takeaway, why not spend some time in the kitchen together and try to recreate your favourites. We’ve got some great fakeaway recipes here! Use it as an excuse to have some me time too, it’s probably been a while since you got ready properly if you’re working from home too, so just enjoy babe. Long distance? Try dinner over Skype or Facetime.

Our fave date night heels…

Add a little touch of bling to any outfit with Heartbreak and Statement. Or bring a little colour with Leila, Chelsee and Raye.

Games Night

Board games aren’t boring anymore. We know you’ve got Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Guess Who or something else lying around somewhere, well girl it’s time to crack it out. Spice it up by introducing challenges or turn it into a drinking game. You’ll either have a great or laugh or end up falling out cause one of you is super competitive. Only one way to find out…

Lockdown and chill?

It’s basically the 2020 version of Netflix and chill. As date night ideas go, it’s not groundbreaking but if you’ve ever wanted to sit down and watch Game of Thrones from the start again (before it went downhill) or another one of your favourite shows, now is the time. Raid the isolation snack cupboard and make yourself some homemade cocktails. Long distance? Netflix have set up Netflix Party so you can both watch together and chat at the same time. This works great for movie nights with the girls too.

Spa Day

I can guarantee that most of us have an enormous stash of beauty and bath products stashed away somewhere that we received from people who didn’t really know what else to get us for our birthdays or Christmas. Time to get them out. Grab bae and have a proper pamper session. Run a bubble bath and put on the most relaxing Spotify playlist you can find. You could even do massages and make your own facemasks if you want to get real creative. It’s more important than ever to have a bit of self care time.

Make Cocktails

Bring the bar to you by having your own cocktail night! The internet is full of recipes to make your fave pornstar or mojito at home. It also gives you another excuse to throw on your favourite heels and have a proper date night with bae.
