While social distancing may be the rule for mingling with others we come in contact with, our lives behind closed doors is a different story. Couples are managing 24/7 togetherness – a recipe that even the most starry-eyed lovers might find challenging.
The remedy? Date night.
To break the monotony of makeup-less days and “Friends” reruns, try sprucing up and doing something special. Who knows? You might fall in love all over again.
Here are a few tips to consider:
Ditch the T-shirt and pajama pants and splurge on a new ensemble that’s casual, comfortable and altogether fabulous. Spring fashions are in and available at local shops such as Cayman’s Clothiers or Gretta Sloane. Check out your local boutique’s Instagram for the latest styles and keep in mind that many are offering curbside pick-up and special delivery.
If you and your significant other find cooking together enjoyable, pick up your favorite items from the grocery and get to cooking. Another option: take-and-bake bake pizza from Hall’s Pizza Kitchen. With warmer weather in the forecast, put together a beautiful picnic in your backyard or on your balcony. Look no further than Boulevard Steakhouse curbside, Café 501 delivery, Sparrow carryout or Ludivine curbside pick-up for your evening bite. Call your neighborhood liquor store for a special spritzer delivery to bring the night to life.
This is the best time to pull out games like Monopoly or Cards Against Humanity. Take yourself back to the things that you enjoyed doing together when you first met. No matter how long ago that time might be, there are things that bring back warm memories. Movies, music to dance to in your kitchen, adult coloring books or old picture albums – find your happy place.
Mix up your favorite drinks or grab some ice cream from Capitals and call it a night. Jump into your favorite jammies or take a dip in the bath. Date nights don’t come often, especially during unpredictable times like these. Appreciate every minute of it.
