Stuck Inside? | 6 Quarantine Date Night Ideas

The pandemic panic over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought many aspects of normal life to a screeching halt. As more and more businesses have begun shutting their doors, more and more people staying home. Simply put, traditional date night ideas like restaurants, bars, or movie theaters are more difficult to accomplish right now. With that said, you may think that a date night with bae right now is simply impossible. Well, it’s not! You can still connect with your partner even if you’re staying in for a date night at home. In fact, you probably already have some of the household items or supplies needed!

Pro Tip: Let’s face it, being quarantined with your kids could be a little bit hectic. So plan with your S/O to make sure you take time with just each other. Maybe after the kids go to bed?

Over the past year, grocery store shelves have been emptied as people preparing for being stuck at home. As the threat of Coronavirus makes its way through the country, shoppers are stocking up on essentials and more. So getting everything to make your go-to meal may be difficult, or impossible. What better time to be creative by trying a new dish? Use whatever you are able to purchase at the store or you could make something from the ingredients you already have at home.

You might even find a new fav meal! But even if not, building a meal using a creative approach can be fun and help you reconnect. Dim the lights, get candle or 2, and share a romantic dinner to start your date night at home off right.
