The Best At-Home Date Ideas in Pittsburgh

A Story By

Spending your nights at home makes for a great way to increase the romance in your relationship! In a time of social distancing, you and your partner can cure boredom and build your bond! Check out our list of the best at-home date ideas in Pittsburgh

Get Creative 🎨

Get creative with a paint session! Put on your favorite music and let the brush flow over the canvas! If you don’t have a canvas to paint on, try using other things in your home like a piece of paper, cardboard,  paper plates, wood, metal, glass, and other miscellaneous objects.

And don’t worry if you’re not “crafty’ or “artistic” painting is for everyone! For more inspiration or a step-by-step tutorial, click click here. Maybe even try painting the silhouette of our city’s iconic skyline! 

Play a Game 🎲

The satisfaction of completing a difficult puzzle is like no other! Throw in a bottle of wine (or two) and it makes for the perfect date night! Also, try connecting through playing a board game! It’s a great opportunity for laughter and to let each other’s competitive side come out! 

🎯“Would You Rather” | Gives the chance to learn a lot about a person

🎯“Newlywed Game” | Test your skills on how well you know your S.O.

🎯“Love Match” | Customizable for each couple!

Spa Day ✨

In times of high anxiety–like now–a relaxation day is a MUST. Run a warm bath (add some bubbles or a bath bomb if you have it!), make DIY face masks, give yourself and your significant other a manicure and more.

Try a New Recipe...or Two 👩‍🍳

Turn on the oven and make pizza together! The best thing about pizza that you each can customize it to your own taste! Plus this one could even become a weekly or monthly tradition! Try this homemade pizza crust and let us know how it goes! Plus light some candles, play romantic music and it’s the perfect candlelit dinner! 

If pizza’s not your thing OR you have a sweet tooth, try baking something! There’s nothing more indulging than a freshly baked-homemade delicacy! Try some of our favorite recipes below! Plus we even added a few no-bake options for simple assembly.

Campout 🏕

Or shall we say…camp-in! Pitch a tent (if you have one) OR make an indoor blanket fort. Grab sleeping bags, extra blankets and pillows and cozy up. Create a menu consisting of sandwiches, burgers, and chips–all foods you would normally eat while camping outdoors. яндекс Make indoor s’mores for an authentic experience. And when night falls, turn on this video, for a comfy campfire.

Additional Indoor Date Ideas

Mug DIY | Decorate cute mugs for each other 

Breakfast in Bed | This one can be done in the AM or PM! 

At-Home Bookstore | Select magazines/books for each other and share interesting tidbits! Make this one extra fun by making your own coffee.

Power Outage Date | Lights outs, romance on!
