Date Night During Social Distancing Idea #1: Go Camping in Your Living Room

Build a fort out of sheets and clothespins or pitch a tent if you have one. Put a blow-up mattress inside or, if you don’t have one layer cozy rugs over yoga mats and blankets. Hang string lights inside and out grab a guitar or your current book and pour some wine and get cozy!

Date Night During Social Distancing Idea #2: Plan Your Next Adventure

It’s never too soon to start daydreaming and planning where you’re going to travel to next. Sit down and (secretly) writes out your top 3 dream locations to travel to in 2021. Put them in a jar or a basket and shake it all around and the paper you pull is where you’re going!

Date Night During Social Distancing Idea #3: Watch a Movie from your Childhood

Pick your favorite nostalgic movie from your youth and take it one step further by pairing it with a comforting snack or meal that you loved from that time period.
