Best zoom date ideas? There’s a sentence that wouldn’t have existed three months ago. But this pesky pandemic has got us all thinking outside the box and, quite frankly, your cute date ideas need to be doing the same. As restrictions begin to relax, it can be tempting to take full advantage of them and go frolicking amongst the crowds of people desperate to hit the pub. And by golly, are we with you on that.
With the likelihood of a second wave heading our way, however, it’s worth considering your options when it comes to at-home date night ideas, and Zoom is here to help. Whether you’re looking for things to do at home with that special someone, trying to think up fresh ways to keep a long-distance relationship firing on all cylinders or hoping to surprise that special, quarantined-someone with a romantic gesture, our LiveBox workshops are here for your social distancing date ideas, and to help you plant the seeds of “lurv.”
Virtual date ideas for couples
Living with your partner is awesome, but the overall awesomeness of it can sometimes pull focus from the necessary maintenance a relationship requires. Putting effort into thoughtful coronavirus date ideas is very crucial to keeping a relationship watered and fed, and you owe it to both yourself and your partner to every now and then, treat them a bit special.
As all of your good date ideas have probably taken a hit thanks to social distancing, coming up with coronavirus date ideas is no easy feat. But don’t sit there thinking that’s a get-out-of-jail-free card! Spending most of your time in lockdown can also take its toll on your relationship, and it’s never been more important to treat each other.
ClassBento’s LiveBox workshops can help get those quarantine date ideas pumping, so you can keep the energy alive.
Many of our workshops can help you two get closer together through the medium of craft! Not that crafting is a bastion of romantic endurance, it’s just that learning a new skill together and creating memories is the foundation of keeping a relationship strong. In decades when we look back and tell our children’s children of this time, it would be a shame to not at least say that we learnt something new!
Crafting makes for one of the best date ideas during quarantine because of its ease, creativity, and it’s safety. By enjoying one of our live stream workshops, you aren’t risking your own health or the health of your partner, just so you can learn how to decoupage. Our instructors and artisans all over Austalia have been adapting their workshops to ensure that your date ideas still get the best possible treatment, even if you can’t be there in person.
Zoom date ideas for far-away partners
Long-distance relationships require more work than most, particularly if it’s not a temporary state of being. If you’ve been separated during the pandemic, staying connected both literally and emotionally is crucial to ensuring your relationship survives. Zoom date ideas are a fantastic way to keep the love flowing whilst also taking your mind off the current world predicament.
If you’re both stuck in Australia, keeping each other engaged is what good date ideas are all about. Whether it’s learning to make focaccia together with a primo Italian chef for absolutely no money, or taking a candle making class so you can literally keep the fire alive, ClassBento’s LiveBox workshops can help your social distancing date ideas rekindle the romance in spite of the separation.
First date ideas in quarantine
If you’re trying to dig up first date ideas during quarantine, we don’t envy you. First dates are nervewracking enough as it is, even without social distancing measures getting in the way of your best-laid plans. With movies still closed and restaurant capacities limited, you need to think outside the usual parameters of fun date ideas. Here are a few fun first date ideas to get you navigating the social distancing laws like a true champion.
Hitting up a cocktail bar is one of the classic fun date ideas, and it may be possible to do really soon. But another fun option is to bring the cocktail bar, to you. With virtual workshops by cocktail masters Kurbaz and a craft kit delivered straight to your door, you’ll be able to shake the night away whipping up some of the nicest cocktails around.
Paint a self-portrait
Artistic, creative, and playfully self-effacing, painting a self portrait is a fantastic way to express yourself. And, with a talented guiding hand to help, you and your date can find out what you really think of yourself. Trying to force a connection is a terrible idea, but giving it a healthy medium to work with? Now that’s some killer first date ideas material.
Drink and draw
Before this whole pandemic, our Paint N Sip workshops were some of our best first date ideas out. This Drink and Draw class is a perfect antidote to social distancing. Whether you’re enjoying it together or separately, it’s still creatively inspiring whilst being fun, casual and more importantly, very affordable.
Compose a Collage
Ahh, decoupage. The most maligned of all art forms. Unfortunately, this unsung hero of the visual medium often gets overlooked when it comes to fun date ideas. But with this fun virtual workshop, you can build a collage art piece together or separately over Zoom! Collage and decoupage go well beyond your Auntie’s scrapbooking club, and together you can make unique and crazy visual art as you slowly-but-surely bond and fall hopelessly in love. We mentioned it above, but that’s because this workshops is one of our fun date ideas worth mentioning twice.
