Many couples have probably struggled to keep their indoor date nights exciting because of the social limitations that have been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To do that, you'll have to step away from boring Zoom meetings that mimic a job interview and plan an innovative and safe event. There is a slew of fun date activities that you can enjoy both right in the comfort of your own home, or somewhere safe outside whether you're looking to strengthen your bond or relieve a bit of anxiety that has come with the pandemic.

Picnic With A Twist

Maybe you are avoiding restaurants and can't deal with yet another walk in the park as a date. While it can be tough to come up with creative socially distanced ideas, a picnic at the park, or your backyard, would be a fun idea.

Check your Weather App for the daily weather report, grab two blankets, a six-pack of beers or a bottle of wine, and a variety of fresh baked goods and snacks for a seasonal park visit.

For a fun twist, each person can make a picnic lunch for the other, and then you trade.

Have A Spa Day

There's no reason why you can't bring the right into your home. A relaxing bath, calming face masks, manicures — the list goes on. A couple that spas together stays together, right?

Try A New Dinner Recipe

Spice things up by making a new dish together. Enhance the experience by dressing up and setting the mood with candles and your favorite playlist.

Play A Board Game

Give the TV a break and reconnect over a board game. It's the perfect opportunity to talk and get in some much-needed laughter.

Plan A Movie Marathon

We've all got that Netflix list a mile long with saved films we'll get to "one day." Well, I know I do. Spending more time at home means both of you can get around to watching the movies you always said you would. Take it in turns one evening to each pick a flick off your "bucket list" and make the night extra special with a few finishing touches.

Be A Tourist In Your Own City

Though many are wary of traveling right now, there are still ways for couples to see the sights without boarding a plane or cruise ship. Take a game drive at Nairobi National Park or simply lounge and bond in one of the many parks we have around the city.

Test Your Karaoke Skills

Challenge your partner to a fun-filled game of karaoke. Singing some of your favorite tunes is guaranteed to boost your spirit.

Tackle A Puzzle

You'll both find satisfaction in completing a challenging puzzle. Just add a bottle of wine to the mix for the perfect date night.
