20 Stay Home Date Night Ideas

Not being able to go out for a nice date night with your significant other is one of the main things I miss about normal life. Eating a nice meal out with a few drinks, or a cinema date and just being out and having a laugh is one of the best things about being in a relationship.

Now we are stuck at home, trying to keep some normalcy (without killing your SO) is the challenge of the day. With Valentines day coming up and we will probably still be in lockdown, I thought we could all use some inspiration for what we can do. So here is my list of all the ways we can still have date night but at home;
