With Valentine’s Day being on a Monday, a lot of couples will find themselves choosing to have an at-home date night rather than going out. Whether you have kids and can’t get a sitter, are tired from a long day at work, or you’re homebodies, there are plenty of reasons to stay home for Valentine’s Day! But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a romantic and fun night together. Here is a list of some great at-home date night ideas for Valentine’s Day!
At-Home Date Night Ideas
Here are some at-home date night ideas for you and your partner to enjoy!
Cook dinner together
Cooking dinner together is SO much fun! It’s really a great bonding experience.
Watch a couple of movies
Why not have a movie marathon night? If you tend to like different movies, choose 2 — one for you and one for your spouse! Get some popcorn and candy and you’re good to go.
Have a board game night
Board game nights are the most fun date nights in our household! There are so many great ones to choose from. Some of our favorites include:
Solve a murder mystery game together
Did you know that there are companies out there where you can play a murder mystery style game together?! One of the most popular is Hunt A Killer. This is a subscription-based service where you will get a new box every month. It’s so much fun! There are also other companies that you could find for online versions, too.
Play a trivia game + order takeout
If one of your favorite date nights is to go out to eat for a trivia night, re-create it at home! Get takeout or delivery from your favorite local spot and play some trivia together. You can make your own, find an online Jeopardy game, or see if any trivia companies around you are hosting a virtual night!
Have an at-home spa night
If both you and your partner love to get pampered, create an at-home spa night! Give each other massages, take a bubble bath or get in the hot tub if you have one, and do some face masks.
DIY a sip and paint night
You don’t necessarily have to go out to have a sip and paint night! Grab your favorite wine or other drinks and look up a paint night tutorial video to follow together.
Make charcuterie boards
Are you both into charcuterie boards? Make your own together! Then, you can have them together for the evening paired with some wine.
Have a video game marathon
Finally, are you big into video games? Have a video game marathon night! Play all of your favorite games together — Mario Kart anyone?!
