It’s easy to plan an outdoor date in the summer during coronavirus. For example, you can easily play a friendly sport (like tennis), go on a picnic, or do another outside activity.
But what should you do if you need to plan an indoor date? What if it’s cold or rainy outside? What if the bars and restaurants are shut down?
10 Simple Indoor Date Ideas at Home – Coronavirus Edition
Continue reading for 10 simple indoor date ideas at home.
1. Cook Dinner Together for a Romantic Indoor Date
If you know your date well enough (save cooking together for a 3rd date or later), go ahead and cook dinner together!
Not sure what to buy for a dinner? Have Whole Foods deliver your food ahead of time.
Food for an At-Home Dinner Date
Just add these items to your Amazon/Whole Foods cart.
Fresh Atlantic Salmon
Fresh Strawberries (for Dessert)
2. Play Cards as an Indoor Date Idea
People used to play cards all the time. Now it seems to be a pastime.
Indoor Date Ideas
Get out an old deck of cards and play a game of Rummy or Cribbage.

3. Play Board Games with Your Neighbors
There’s nothing wrong with a double date! Double dates are an underutilized date idea.
Invite your neighbors over and play party games with your date.

Cards Against Humanity
I personally love Say Anything as a party game. It’s a great way to get to know people!
3. Watch a Movie Together
Okay…so it’s not original, but you can always watch a movie together.

4. Make a Dessert Together if You Are Stuck Inside
Even if you aren’t a big dessert person, it can still be fun bake a cake or cookies!

5. Read Each Other’s Astrological Sign
I don’t believe in astrology or horoscopes, but it can be fun to read!
Read your date three “descriptions” of three different astrological signs. Then, ask your date which one they think is them. It’s a fun way to see how accurate (or inaccurate!) astrological signs are.
There are tons of free websites online. Or, you can buy a simple astrological book on Amazon for less than $10.

Buy these books for fun reading on rainy days.
6. Work On a Puzzle Together While Sipping Wine
Have Alexa play some jazzy music, open a bottle of wine, and work on a puzzle together. Because…why not?!
Fun Puzzle for an Indoor Date Night
I’m not a puzzle person, so I’d recommend NOT doing the 1,000-piece puzzles. Choose a 500 piece puzzle or less!

7. Do a Craft Together – Pretend to Be Kids on a Date!
Who says that crafts are only for kids?

10. Strip Poker as a Crazy Indoor Date Idea
