If you need some inspiration to get started, never fear we have put together a list of five incredibly ideas for a date night in:
Cooking Class Night
Cook-along or bake-along are becoming very popular, with people jumping on cooking or baking trends on social media. Do not just make a banana bread to share on your Insta story, however, make a night of it.
To host a cooking class, have everyone pick a recipe and give them a few days to collect or order in the ingredients. When the day comes, pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy a catch-up while you all try to make the recipe you have chosen.
This can be done as a special night, or as a nightly occurrence, for example, with your parents, so that you can share in a meal even across miles.
If baking or cooking is not your thing, you can still eat together by ordering the same food. Host cheese, chocolate, or wine tasting nights by sending off a list of food your friends or family can order to their door and then try out different combinations together through a video chat.
At-Home Night Out
At-home nights out are very doable, but you do need to work to make them more interactive to make them as thrilling as possible. Instead of just putting club music on and having a drink in your hand, plan games with your friends. Have everyone plan a budget, even if it’s a small $10, and go online to find the best casino from https://www.maplecasino.ca/. Doing this online with others and a set budget is fun, thrilling, and a great way to kick off any night.
These sorts of interactive activities make a night in, feel like a night out. Playing games like Dance Dance Revolution online with friends is another great way to get active, have fun, and be connected to your friends or family.
Movie nights can be a nightmare, but there are a few ways to make it easier. Use these tips to watch a movie with someone online:
- Use two devices if possible (ex: laptop and phone or tv and phone), to stop an audio bleed.
- Use extensions like Netflix Party to watch a video at the same time or use an online clock to start the movie at the same time.
- Use headphones to listen to your friends so that you can better balance the different audios.
Once Summer Comes Around…
Of course, these are all options you can enjoy right now. Once summer comes around, you can host BBQs online, enjoy backyard firepits, set up a camping tent, and so much more to enjoy a staycation at home.
