Find a New Bingewatching Series and Make a Marathon Happen
We have a list of shows we’ve both enjoyed watching. But you could easily crowdsource this on social media and find a highly recommended show to dedicate an entire night to watching together.

Missing an Escape Room? Do one at Home
We’ve done several group dates to escape room locations. But we equally love doing escape rooms at home. Here’s how.
Go for a Long Walk
Sometimes just leaving the house is the magic you need for a quarantine date. Grab your favorite walking shoes and plan an extended stroll through your neighborhood, or a nearby park or walking trail.
Do an Adventure Challenge
We found the Adventure Challenge for Couples about a year ago, and the Adventure Book has been a quarantine date night lifesaver throughout 2020! It’s a scratch-off date night book that gives you a challenge to complete. The rule is no takebacks, you have to do what’s on the scratcher! Also, almost all are stay-at-home friendly and give you enough idea in advance if it’s going to work for you.BONUS: We love them so much we asked for a promo code!

Take Date Night to the Car
We have a whole list of car date ideas. If you really need a night out, but that’s just not possible with a babysitter or feeling safe, the garage or driveway is a great idea! I swear it helps you feel like you got a date night out while you’re only a few more feet away from your couch.
Take Date Night to the Backyard
When the weather is nice, seize the day and use one of our backyard date ideas! Even if your backyard is small, there’s a lot of excellent date nights to be had in your own backyard!
Three-Course Drive Through
Stay in your car, and plan a three-course meal with drive-through options only. Go to one place for an appetizer, another for the main course, and the third location for dessert.
Home Date Ideas
Do a Puzzle
I’m always amazed at how much fun doing a great puzzle together can be! We just spent a night doing Christmas Puzzles and I forgot how fun they really are! We love finding unique and modern puzzles here.
Charcuterie Board Night
These are the grown-up version of Lunchables. I promise you’ll be just as excited to eat a charcuterie board spread as you were to open your lunchbox and find Lunchables.
Stream A Broadway Show
If you’re itching to go to the theater, there are plenty of ways to watch a Broadway show at home! Disney+ streams Hamilton, and Netflix has several shows too. There are tons of options on BroadwayHD too!
Create Your Own Movies in the Park
We figured out the perfect setup for a backyard movie night and it has been the gift that keeps on giving! Whenever the weather is decent, we take movie night outside. It’s definitely taken a movie date night up a notch!
Watch All the Marvel Movies in Order
When Avengers End Game was about to be released, we realized we’d fallen far behind in Marvel movies. In order to enjoy the movie, we looked up every Avengers movies in order and made a list to share. It’s a fun way to make movies feel more exciting and understand how they are all connected. And hey, you probably have time to watch them all while you need several weeks worth of quarantine date ideas.
Couples Game Night
There are so many great couple games for two that make a fantastic date night! You can easily Zoom in with a friend and great a quarantine date night group date!

We’ve been working on our Loom Love Journal for Couples answering questions and talking through prompts. It’s like therapy in a really good, really positive way! Plus they are offering 15% off- use Promo Code FridayWereInLove as your discount code.
But we’ve also been trying another couple’s journal called the Promptly Journal for Married Couples– which helps you document your story, your history, and your memories. You can use promo code FRIDAYWEREINLOVE for 15% off! Both are equally great, and a fun thing to sit and work on together.
Connect With Conversation Cards
When you’re spending more time at home together, it may feel like you already have a good grip on how each other’s day went. But if you’re looking to connect deeper, conversation cards can be a great tool! We love this inexpensive set. It pairs perfectly with takeout for at least two dates!

It’s just you two and the stars! We shared a bunch of tips how to do this well in our stargazing date night post!
