Amidst the pandemic and social-distancing protocols, there are still numerous ways to have the perfect date night with your partner at the comfort of your home. Having a quarantine date night is just as fun as going out especially when you plan it well. Incorporate fresh and exciting activities so you and your valentine can try something new.
Whether you're running out of ideas on what to do this coming Valentine's Day or you are challenged with a long-distance setup, we've got a bunch of ideas to help you come-up with a master plan. We've provided a guide below on how to prepare and pull off a quarantine date night as well as a list of fun activities you can enjoy with your special someone.
This is the perfect time to release your creativity and think of fun ideas to keep the spark and romance alive. Here are some things to remember when organizing a date night during this quarantine.
One of the things that you should consider when planning a date night is to decide whether it's going to be just the two of you or if it will be an activity for the whole family, especially if you have kids. It is essential to be clear because if the whole family is present, consider activities that everyone will appreciate.
If the entire family will be joining in the fun, you can do a movie marathon where everyone can wear their comfortable pajama. Just make sure to pick a family-friendly movie for the kids to enjoy. Board games and party games are also a great idea because it encourages teamwork as well.
On the other hand, if it's going to be a couple's date night, then you are free to set up the living and dining rooms with scented candles and scattered roses for a romantic dinner. You can also do an activity where the both of you can bond even more, for example, cooking your dinner together or making a scrapbook.
Planning a date night is an excellent time to know your date's interests. Try checking their social media accounts and research about your partner's hobbies and favorites. If you've been together for a long time, this should not be a challenging task for you. Don't forget to integrate the things that you enjoy as well. Mutual fun is important to make the date memorable for the both of you.
If you want to make it more exciting and extra special, you can plan a surprise date night - for example, decorate your kitchen with heart balloons and then bake some cookies and brownies together. Plan early and buy all the materials secretly. Your partner will be amazed and feel touched by what you've prepared.
Some people prefer traditional date night activities such as dinner dates and late-night walks under the moon and stars as they find it romantic. However, if you feel like you're stuck with the same date night routine, try something new - an activity that you haven't done before. Express your creativity and spice things up by putting a twist to it.
For example, watch a 3D movie at home, go camping in the garden, or opt for a travel-themed activity at home since it's hard to fly out of the country. Think of a country that you've been wanting to visit and decorate your home inspired by that country. You can also show your kitchen skills by preparing that country's signature dish.
Distance is not a hindrance to closeness. Whether you're in a long-distance relationship or you cannot come over to your partner's place because of the quarantine restrictions, you can sustain the love and sweetness by having a Zoom date night and enjoy doing things together.
You can play an online game, where you can be opponents - just a virtual kiss and hug will do after an intense and heated game. If you are into music, set up a virtual karaoke as singing sweethearts. To make it more kilig, wear couples' shirts and order the same main course and dessert for an online dinner date.
Whether you'll be enjoying the date as a couple, a family, or as group of friends, we have ideas for you! Included in the list are virtual date night recommendations that are suitable this quarantine. Here are 10 creative suggestions, along with the perfect products that you can purchase online to have a wonderful evening.
