At Home Date Night Ideas

At Home Date Night Ideas hero image

Dating can be difficult at the best times but nothing has tested the dating game more than the year 2020. Everything has been put on hold: travelling, careers and even going to the pub. But this doesn’t mean your dating life has to be put on hold (unless you want it to, of course!). Nothing brings out creativity like restrictions so it’s time to put your creative hats on! Or if you’re still stuck, you could just take a peek at the below for some date idea inspiration.

Date Night Ideas With a Difference

1. Coffee Date

Let’s start off with an easy date night idea – why not take your coffee date and make it virtual over a video call! This one should even be possible for all the technophobes out there, get your favourite mug out and have a good chat to get to know one another.

If you want to make your coffee date a bit more fancy, why not try our vegan pumpkin spice latte recipe? It’s a delicious, autumnal and (most importantly) vegan treat that is bound to give you a little confidence boost during your date!

2. Movie Night In

Cinema dates are always a good idea. You get to know what kind of films your date likes and have a whole movie worth of stuff to chat about after – perfect! And it’s super easy to turn it into a virtual date night idea…

There are so many ways to watch movies these days – streaming, on demand or a good old fashioned DVD. If it’s a first date, you can video chat at the same time, or you could just stick to a phone call if you’re self conscious about the amount of popcorn you’ll be eating. After all, it wouldn’t be the same cinematic experience without the snacks!

3. Quiz Night at Home

Pub quizzes are a British staple and these are just as easy to create at home! Just get some questions from the internet or hunt through the trivia games you have lying around and put your partner’s knowledge to the test.

If you don’t live together then video calls are a lifesaver. You can take it in turns to quiz each other and see who gets the most points. If it all goes well, you could even turn it into a quiz championship with other teams as a great way to meet the friends. This could be the beginning of something special, but don’t worry we’ll only take half the credit for the best virtual date night idea ever!

4. Games Night

This next at home date night idea is along a similar vein – you could either play at home together or turn it into a virtual games night. A word to the wise though: proceed with caution if you’re competitively inclined! There’s a plethora of games out there to choose from. You could go intense and do an escape room, you could put your art skills to the test and play Pictionary or you could go classic and play Scrabble together (either online or on your phone). The board game world is your oyster!

Date Night Recipes

A date night wouldn’t be complete without the food! Food is a vital part of our lives and can be a great thing to bond over – especially if you’ve found a fellow vegan diet fanatic! Why not put your partner’s cooking skills to the test? Have cook off with some delicious vegan ingredients like who can make the best vegan pizza, or vegan burger.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth then a vegan bake off is a fun date night idea. If you’re a bit stuck with where to start, don’t panic! We’ve got your vegan date night recipes covered:
