At-Home Date Night Ideas

Gone are the days of seeing a movie in theatres, sharing a bottle of wine at your favourite restaurant or going to a concert. Whether you are connecting from afar or physically in the same space, keep the spark going by dressing up and preparing for the date night of your dreams without leaving the house.


Skip going out to the bar for a fun and intimate evening in the comfort of your own home. Challenge your partner to a cook-off or reminisce the menu from your first date. Regardless of your kitchen skills, the experience of trying to cook a new recipe together will make a good memory. For a hassle-free night in, pick up meals from your regular restaurant or get delivery.

Couples apart can choose to cook the same recipe simultaneously or have a meal over video chat. Alternatively, surprise your date with a meal sent to them instead.

Be your own mixologist or sommelier. Order your preferred liquor and have a tasting throughout the night, or shake up your choice of cocktails for pre-dinner drinks or virtual happy hour.


Dust off those board games, cards and puzzles and have a game night. There are even virtual games that you can play together.

Relive your first movie date from the comfort of your lounge. Streaming services are filled with the classics, and new films are dropping every day. Not in the same room? Decide on a show ahead of time, grab your popcorn and binge your way through your watch-list via video call or one partner can live-stream the movie.

Release your inner Picasso and create new artwork for your home with arts and crafts projects. There are plenty of inspirational DIY videos on YouTube, too.


Getting the mood right for your special night is essential. Set the tone with your choice of music such as romantic melodies you can relax to, or something more upbeat like jazz. Many music streaming services have ‘date night’ playlists, ready for you to hit ‘play’.

Change up the atmosphere with mood lighting. Dim the lights and place candles or some lamps around the room to create a romantic ambience. Add elegance to your table setting with flowers and a statement vase.


Staying at home, it is easy to want to remain in your pyjamas and loungewear. Make date night extra special by dressing to impress. Finally, a great excuse to wear your favourite dress, heels or suit at home. Pop on your best jewellery and spritz some fragrance for extra glam.
