An outgoing pair or not, date night is important for you and bae! But when we’re under Corona Circuit Breaker, your planned date nights out are out of the list now and staying at home is a must! Sounds plain and boring, right? Fret not! Stay-at-home dates should not and cannot always be just Netflix and chill! There are still a lot of activities you can do at home to spend quality time with your S.O during pandemic lockdown! Here’s our top 5:
1. Game Night is the best night
Game night is the perfect date option when you’re both stuck at home. It’s the perfect date to play and challenge each other, it’s super fun and you can test your gaming skills. More importantly, playing with each other is healthy competition, right? Admit it, beating your partner on your favourite games is a big turn on *wink*!
Card games, board games or video games? Doesn’t matter! You can do alternates and try one game per date. You can try 2 Player card games like blackjack, rummy or gin. Chess, Monopoly and Uno for board games. And if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner, you can feel nostalgic and play the old arcade games again!
2. Workout Sesh with BAE
Staying at home because of the quarantine doesn’t mean you and your SO should forget how to keep your bodies fit! Working out together as a stay-at-home date activity is hitting two birds with one stone: you motivate each other to be lean, strong and fit and both of you can lose the extra pounds from binge-eating!
3. DIY Candlelight Dinner
This might be the most traditional stay-at-home date you can do but it’s still the most romantic nonetheless. It’s not only romantic, it’s cheap too! Cook your speciality or let your partner help you prep up your table. Don’t forget to dress up so it’ll feel like an actual date from a restaurant.
4. Test your Karaoke Prowess
If you’re looking for something fun and light quarantine date activity, then Karaoke is the key! Sing your hearts out and release your inhibitions through your favourite songs! This is the time to be divas! It’s so easy because you can just look up for karaoke versions of your favourite songs on YouTube. (Just make sure you don’t wake up your neighbours).
5. Spa Night
If you’re looking for a calm, peaceful evening with just your significant other, a spa date night is highly recommended. Being under quarantine might feel a little bit stressful and worrisome because of the virus spread so it’s important that you both de-stress, relax and pamper each other. Plan up an easy spa routine starting with massages with essential oils, put up DIY face masks (time to up your skincare game!) and end your night with cuddles. Don’t forget to set up a good spa vibe – you can play chill music, dim the lights and light up scented candles or oils which the both of you like.
There are tons of great ideas you can try for a stay-at-home date night this lockdown. But what’s important is that you and your partner is safe at home while not forgetting how to keep the fire burning.
