Order A Date Factory Box!

We came across this company years ago and love what they have to offer couples who are looking for a unique at-home date night experience. Date Factory makes date night easy by planning, packing and shipping a complete date night in a discreet box, right to your doorstep. There's a wide selection of date night boxes to choose from, ranging from themed date nights and digital dates, to specialty boxes and something a little more sexy, if you get what we mean! To find out more about these date-in-a-box experiences, click here.

Movie Night

What's better than cuddling up on the couch to watch your favourite movies together? You don't need much to pull off this sweet date night idea besides a few warm blankets, comfy pillows and a hoard of snacks. If you've watched your must-see list of movies together a thousand times, turn the volume down and see if you can remember the dialogue from memory. Or, make it more of a challenge by rewriting the script together. Come up with the most ridiculous lines you can think of. The aim of the game is to make each other laugh, so get as silly as you can with it.

Stargazing

When last did you take the time to look up at the stars with your special someone? Lay out a cozy blanket in the garden and get snuggled up together for this ultimate free date night experience. If you happen to have a bottle or two of bubbly, bring it along to amp up the romance factor. Alternatively, try your hand at making a few refreshing mocktails. If you really want to impress your sweetheart, whip up a tasty picnic feast to enjoy together under the moonlight. Ooh la la!

Online Cooking Classes

There are a mass of online cooking classes happening at the moment. Sign up for one with your partner and get cooking! This is not only a great way to learn a new skill together, but there are bound to be a couple of laughable moments as you learn together. Don't be afraid to make a mess either. There is nothing quite as satisfying as smearing a dollop of brownie batter on your partner's nose when they aren't looking.

Romantic Dinner

Put your new cooking or baking skills to the test by organising a romantic candlelit dinner for two in your living or dining room. While you may not be able to surprise your significant other (because they're always around!), you can nevertheless make this date night one to remember. Throw on your best outfit and serenade them with their favourite songs or a playlist dedicated to your relationship. Get them up and dancing with you after dinner or just spend time talking.

Game Night

When you've been together for a long time, a certain rivalry may start to emerge between you. It's harmless fun, but it's the perfect way to keep entertained while keeping safe indoors. Pull out the board games and let the competition begin! Whether it's good old card games, Monopoly or online multiplayer games, this date night is likely to show you a whole other side of your partner. Artsy couples, get out your felt markers to play the doodle challenge. Basically, your partner draws something against your back and you have to guess what it is. Hint: if you've never said 'I love you' before, this is a super sweet way to do it.

Have fun, lovebirds!

Braai

Most South Africans love to have a good braai (and yes, vegetarians and vegans can also enjoy a braai). Whether planned or unplanned, a good braai with the basics is an absolutely awesome excuse to make an impact on our environment.
