Whether it be the COVID-19 pandemic, cold weather or a tight budget, having a stay-at-home date can be the perfect opportunity to shake things up, right?

Here are six out-of-the-box date ideas to help you and your partner have a fun, romantic time.

  1. Relax with some backyard stargazing – Head outside with your favorite stargazing app to admire the night sky. Make sure to set the mood with soft music, cozy blankets and a warm snack.
  2. Create a trivia night – Use the internet to find questions that are challenging enough to create healthy competition, but still easy enough that you’re having fun.
  3. Set up a paint night – Break out the craft supplies and follow a painting tutorial or challenge your partner to a portrait competition.
  4. Have a themed dinner night – Pick a theme, like Italian, and enjoy some Italian music, a classic Italian meal and don’t forget a movie set in Italy.
  5. Enjoy a romantic picnic – Take dinner up a few notches by trading the dining room table for a picnic blanket, candles and fancy dishware.
  6. Build a grown-up pillow fort – Work with your partner to transform the living room into a cozy, romantic space for cuddles and quality time.

However you choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we hope you have fun!
