1. Make a Pizza Together.

This date night idea is both fun and delicious at the same time. Making a pizza together is perfect to get hands-on in the kitchen, and in your relationship while whipping up a homemade pizza in the comfort of your kitchen. Make the dough together, choose your toppings, and create more than just a pizza—create a memory that lasts.

Try it with this unique Skinny Homemade Pizza.

It's the most delicious way to say I love you, while topping this pizza with all the ingredients you love. The fact that it's also a lightened-up version is the cherry (tomato) on top. You get everything you want, with the one you love, on a crispy homemade crust.

2. Try a Virtual Museum Tour

Why kick open the front door to go to your favorite museum together, when you can sit back, open your laptop, and explore it in the arms of your partner? This activity is a fun, safe, and adventurous way to see the places you've always wanted to explore without breaking the bank. From world-famous art museums to the heart of the galaxy, to jungles and aquariums—every kind of virtual adventure is waiting for you and your fingertips.

3. Tackle a Puzzle

Puzzles are a great way to spend hours together without a moment of boredom. Put together your favorite puzzles, a new one, or that puzzle that's been waiting on a shelf to be finished. It's called a classic for a reason, and with so many pictures to piece together and worlds to explore one jigsaw at a time, there's no wonder why. It's a great activity that has everything going for it, some fun, endless banter, and an art piece that you can be proud of at the end of the night.

Try this activity with our Cheese and Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms.

4. Home Wine Tasting

Bring the vineyards and all they have to offer to your own lounge. You and your partner can explore different notes and tastes from different regions across the globe while staring into each other's eyes along the way. A home wine tasting is an activity that drips with elegance and class, romance, and fun. Grab your glasses, big and small, and uncork your romance by sipping away into the evening.

5. Movie Night

You can never go wrong by watching your favorite movies for your date night in, and the genres are endless. You and your partner can laugh away at a classic comedy or hold each other tight when watching a horror. You can even transform your lounge into a homemade cinema with popcorn, drinks, and a big-screen experience. A projector is great when it comes to this activity. The trickiest part to making this experience work will be picking a movie both of you can agree on.

Try this date idea with Oven Caramel Corn.

6. Take YouTube Dance Lessons

It's true what they say, "it takes two to tango." For this activity, it couldn't be more accurate. Turn your home into your very own dance studio for two with video tutorials that'll teach you how to rumba, waltz, tango, and twist in all the right ways. The best part is being in each other's arms the whole night through, having fun, and learning a new skill that you'll hold onto for the rest of your life.

7. Have a Spa Day

Sweet romance has never been more relaxing! Your home can be your very own retreat when you set up a DIY spa day just for the two of you. If you have a jacuzzi, all the better. But don't get hung up on the big lavish expenses, you can create your own steam bath in your shower and give massages by the turn. The best part is that this spa session has no time limit on it, you can enjoy it the whole night through. Light some candles, play some relaxing music and start to unwind in the comfort of your own home with the one you love.

Try this activity with our Fruity Mimosa Bar.
