6 Finds and Activities for a Date Night In

Don't just turn on the TV and call it a night. Try something new!

$78 and up,

After a day of keeping up with the kids, quality time with your spouse might simply look like a relaxing movie night. Cuddle up together in the Spell It Out Blanket, which can be customized with your last name or a meaningful word.


It’s easy to get so caught up in daily life that we forget to ask our loved ones deep questions, like what dreams they have or what has changed their worldview. Where Should We Begin? is a game that brings storytelling to date nights. Simply pull a card, ask the question listed, and learn more about your favorite companion.


Unplug from distractions and reconnect with the Date Night In “Power Outage” box. Couples will deepen their relationship by putting aside tech and participating in activities that highlight the importance of vulnerability. The box comes with everything you need, including a treat and power-free recipe.

$30 and up,

Fancy a cocktail? Make your own with one of Cocktail Courier’s drink kits. Each kit is delivered to your door with all the ingredients needed to craft a refreshing beverage like a Midwinter Thaw Margarita or Spices To Savor Irish Coffee. Some of the recipes give you the option to forego the spirits if your bar cart is already stocked.


Schedule a virtual wine tasting with Bonacquisti Wine Company, a winery that grows grapes in Palisades, Colorado. Winemaker and executive sommelier, Paul Bonacquisti, takes you through the process of crushing, fermenting, bottling, and of course, tasting, with three bottles of wine. Classes are available for up to six people if you want to make it a double or triple date.


Get artsy with a live, 90-minute Romantic Date Night Painting Class where you’ll learn how to paint a scene of winding streets in Paris or Positano. Participants will be mailed two canvases, six paint brushes, acrylic paints, reference images, and an instruction sheet. Find February class dates online.
