Ever since the lockdowns got enforced in several countries worldwide, people have pretty much limited themselves to their houses. If you’re like most people, you probably find yourself only walking out when it’s absolutely necessary and practicing social distancing whenever possible—which is the sensible thing to do according to healthcare and government bodies’ guidelines.
But, you can’t deny that staying at home can be extremely boring, and boredom is the bane of most failed relationships. Luckily, to keep the spark alive, there are a handful of activities you can do with your significant other during this time to make things memorable and fun.
If you’ve been looking for fun and unique date ideas, look no further!
1. Arrange Your Photos
Your photos shouldn’t be left in some album or kept away in a box to mold away. You’ve got ample time to dig out photos of you and your loved ones and hang them up in key areas around the house where they are more visible and appreciated. Some creative ways to display your photos are dedicating an entire wall just for memories of you with the people you love most. For items like fridges and bookshelves, you could also use magnets to stick your favorite memories to places and areas you visit the most in your home.
2. Make a Couples’ Playlist
It’s true that a lot of people have that one song that perfectly describes their relationship—for example, songs like “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran are a very popular choice for this genre. In other cases, there can be a handful of songs that you can relate to, in which case, it’s probably best to start compiling all your favorite songs that remind you of your significant other or a moment back in time in a playlist.
3. Write A Letter to Them
There’s no denying that the world is a very scary place right now, and try as we might to shield ourselves from reality, it’s important to keep moving and persevere through tough times. To express your appreciation, write a letter to your loved one explaining to them how much their support means to you and how it has helped you during hard times like these.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to plan your next indoor date.
