Racking your brain for cute at home date ideas, this quarantine season? Rack no further! Whether you’re looking for fun things to do to keep things fresh with your current partner or your chasing iso date ideas to treat someone you’re sweet on, ClassBento is here to detangle your brain when it comes to things to do at home for that special someone in quarantine.
We’ve pre-prepared some cute at home date ideas for you to sink your teeth into, so you can wine and dine your love interest and take all the credit. We really are that nice, here. Ranging from cheap date night ideas to fun indoor activities for adults still figuring out if they’re keen on each other, we have a growing range of workshops, activities and gift experiences for couples bound to cover every type of iso-relationship out there!
When it comes to cheap date ideas, dinner and a movie is a classic for the ages. The Godfather of dates; if you will. But just because you can’t go out, doesn’t mean you can’t get creative. Perfect for impressing someone you’re in the process of “wooing,” invite them over to your house for a nice dinner and movie. We’ve covered this in a few other at home date night ideas in quarantine articles (check them out here for more tips) but that’s because this is a real killer idea and one of the best things to do at home to impress a prospective partner.
Put a little bit of effort into decorating the house like a restaurant. Finesse the dining table with a clean tablecloth and some candles for mood lighting, and arrange the furniture in such a way that the dining table is the focal point. Now, this might already be the case, but by centring where you eat you’ve placed an element of ‘occasion’ on dinner, given it a subtle level of importance that eating on the couch with the telly on just doesn’t hold. And let’s face it, cute date night ideas don’t include eating on the couch.
Before they arrive, it’s time to whip up one of the best meals for classic date ideas: Italian food. ClassBento can send you everything you need to learn how to make beautiful fluffy gnocchi or authentic Italian pizza and, if you’ve timed it right, your special someone should arrive just as your finishing up. You know, covered in a bit of flour, stirring a pot; almost finished but not quite. This gives it a real “imperfectly perfect” vibe and helps you avoid eating cold food. Afterwards, you can watch a movie, but if you’ve nailed everything else that evening, you probably won’t finish it. This is one of the best cheap date night ideas available, and you don’t need to pop over to Leichhardt for a good Italian feed.
Before reading any further information on one of our best at home date ideas on offer, be aware: this one requires a bit of a budget. It’s absolutely worth every penny, but stretching money can be hard right now, and we wouldn’t want you spending vital iso-dollars on at home date ideas you can’t afford. That being said, however, this is one of the best indoor activities for adults looking to get colourful.
Prior to quarantine, Made By Me Workshop ran a plethora of creative craft classes from St Peters to Castle Hill, and is offering you and your partner the chance to design and make your own DIY resin serving boards all from your living room! Resin art is a free-flowing method of mixing colour and form and a unique and stylish way to decorate homewares. Obviously this is a unique gift experience for couples, but how does it fit into our top iso date ideas? Have you ever made art with someone?
Creating art together is one of the best date night ideas because it can really enhance your connection with each other through creativity, and this is no different. The only difference is that if you paint watercolours together, it can be awfully hard to eat off them. This combines the chemistry-building process of shared artistic experience with the added benefit of building something you can eat off. Cheese is an aphrodisiac**, you know.
Now before you continue reading one of the best date night ideas, please also be aware: This is one of the best things to do at home for couples. As far as indoor activities for adults go, this one is the pinnacle, but we highly recommend you are in an established relationship for this one because it’s a couple’s massage class.
Couple’s massage classes are a surefire way to reconnect with each other both physically and emotionally, particularly during stressful periods, and make for one of the most sensual date ideas available. This is one of our most unique craft boxes, and the reason it functions so well as one of our stand-out iso date ideas is that unlike many of our other LiveBox classes, the workshops are pre-recorded and included in the box itself!
This means that you can indulge each other without having the pressure of being on a live stream. The craft kit also contains an array of oils for you to work with, as well as two massage vouchers to use when you’re allowed back outside. Light some candles, watch the videos, put on some music and treat each other. Oh, and turn your phones off. This is one of the most romantic at home date ideas available, but please don’t surprise a first date with this one, it’ll just be weird.
These are just a small sample of at home date night ideas that are available on ClassBento’s website. If you’re willing to get a bit creative, there’s an array of things to do at home that’ll impress your significant other and get the romance blossoming during quarantine.
