1. Write thoughtful letters for your friends and family

We can all agree that technology has made lockdown bearable, but emails and texts can feel a little soulless, leaving us desperate for more meaningful communication. An online calligraphy course provides a solution – you'll master techniques to write notes for your nearest and dearest in a beautiful script.

Besides delighting others and levelling up your love letter game, brush lettering is brilliantly meditative. Worries melt away as you become absorbed in a calming and cursive dance, matching breath to pen movement.

2. Bring the outside in by painting flowers and leaves

Isolation date ideas don't get better than this – a whimsical online watercolour painting workshop that encapsulates the natural world. Using traditional methods like colour washing, blending and layering, you'll recreate exquisite landscapes overflowing with wildflowers and greenery. 

While it's not quite the same as venturing outdoors, it's equally relaxing. Plus, online art classes allow couples to express themselves individually – crucial when you've spent weeks or months under each other's feet!

3. Satisfy your wanderlust with Japanese cherry blossoms

Hopping on a plane might be impossible right now, but you can still explore far-flung locations with an online sip and paint class. Enjoy a refreshing cocktail and travel to Japan, where cherry blossoms grace city temples, sweeping gardens and sumptuous palaces.

A talented teacher is available throughout to help you imitate the blossom's delicate pink blooms. By the end, you'll have a vibrant masterpiece to brighten your lockdown space.

4. Mix cocktails the COVID-safe way

Lacking laughter in lockdown? Then choose an online cocktail making class, complete with a round of group trivia. It's an excellent excuse to raid your liquor cabinet (you'll be surprised at what you can do with a bottle of half-drunk gin)!

As one of the most immersive lockdown activities for couples, this class will have you mixing, muddling, shaking and giggling as you learn to make three delicious cocktails. There's ample time to chat in the Zoom room with other aspiring mixologists, and you'll make brand-new pub friends for when life returns to normal.

5. Enhance the ambience with candle making

Spending too much time together can make things feel stale, so why not enhance the ambience with a online DIY candle making class?

After an introduction to types of waxes and their applications, you'll craft pillar, container and beeswax candles as well as tealights. What's more, because self-care is so essential, you'll also try your hand at a fragrant melt and pour soap.

6. Grow an air purifying indoor garden

Grow an indoor garden in this online online terrarium making class – not only do they look wonderful, but they double as air purifiers, reducing the risk of certain respiratory conditions.

After layering soil and stones, you'll choose from a range of tropical plants, rocks and playful figurines to complete your tiny utopia. Most importantly, a DIY terrarium is a low maintenance option for laid-back gardeners and promises to thrive for years to come.

7. Hand build one-of-a-kind bowls and plates

Hand build gorgeous kitchenware in this online pottery class – no throwing wheel required. An accomplished crafter will demonstrate how to make ceramic bowls, plates and platters with amazing shapes and textures before guiding you through a sensory journey.

Thanks to the intimate environment, every student gains personalised tuition and has the chance to ask questions about sculpting, glazing and firing ceramics, plus, how to paint your own pottery.

8. Play with clay and enjoy a cuppa

The art of tea making is therapeutic, and drinking from a handmade mug is even more joyful! Complement your daily hot drink rituals with an online pottery class centred around charming clay cups.

Crafty couples will love putting their worries to one side and playing with clay. Firstly, tactile manipulation has a rooting effect, reducing feelings of disassociation. Then, producing ceramics at home builds confidence – it's extremely rewarding to tackle DIY projects to a professional standard.

9. Make stunning resin jewellery

Diving into the world of online resin art and assembling elegant jewellery pieces is a thoughtful lockdown date idea. You could design something for each other, showcasing your dexterity while making your loved one's day.

Working with resin is fascinating – almost scientific! You'll mix rainbow pigments, pour liquid into silicone moulds and coat white tiles. Although it's measurement-based, the outcome is magical. The organic free flow of colours produces a kaleidoscopic mishmash of patterns, shapes and textures.

10. Feast on homemade tagliatelle and garganelli

Did you know couples who eat together report maximum happiness with their relationship? That's reason enough to indulge in this online pasta making masterclass, where you'll cook two kinds of egg pasta found in the Emilia-Romagna region - tagliatelle and garganelli. After perfecting the recipe for a soft and silky rolled dough, you'll simmer a tasty gypsy sauce or lamb ragu to finish the meal.

11. Prepare authentic Indian curries

If you're feeling uninspired with the same old dinners, this online Indian cooking class will blast your taste buds with aromatic ingredients.

Hungry partners will discover the secrets to dals, korma, raita, aloo gobi and more! Every recipe uses fresh seasonal vegetables for maximum flavour, and the chef will give you the courage to use spices and lentils in other dishes and cuisine.
