8 Best Stay at Home Date Night Ide

stay at home date ideas for couples

A Valentine's Day in instead of out can be the best. You do not need to battle the crowds, and you don't have to stay out late. But you still want to make the night special. Check out these ideas to have a lovely night home together. 

  1.  Board Game Date Night: Dust off the board games and spend the evening with games and snacks. 
  2. Dinner for Two: Find a new recipe to cook together. Cooking together will be an excellent opportunity to talk and learn a new recipe together. 
  3. Create a Bucketlist: Spend Valentine's Day by sitting down together with a batch of brownies and thinking about the things you both want to do together and as individuals when the world opens back up. 
  4. Livingroom Picnic: Instead of waiting until the evening of Valentine's, celebrate with a living room lunch picnic with all your favorite picnic foods. 
  5. Go for a Hike: Find a new trail to discover with your sweetie. You can chat and find unique views together. 
  6. Stress-Free Plans: If you can't choose what movie to watch for date night, use the Netflix Roulette tool to pick what you and your sweetheart will snuggle and watch together. 
  7. Take a bath together: Set up candles and fill the tub with a lovely smelling bubble bath. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy laid-back time with your partner. 
  8. Take a trip in the past: Cuddle on the couch and look at pictures from the beginning of your relationship. This is a great time to tell your partner what you love most about your relationship then and now.

Must Have Amazon Organizers For 2022

Amazon must haves

I am obsessed with organizing my home and making life easier for myself and for keeping my home clean. Amazon is one of my go-to places for buying organizers. Below I've shared my top eight Amazon must-haves for organizers that I use in my home. Let me know in the comments if you pick up any of the items for your home. 

1. Madesmart 2-Tier Organizer: I have these organizers under my sink for my cleaning supplies. They come in two sizes and are absolutely perfect for organizing. The one pictured is the larger size but you can find the smaller size by clicking here

Best under the sink organizer

2. MDesign Expandable Kitchen Drawer Organizer: These expandable drawer organizers are useful all around the house. I have them in my kitchen drawers to sort kitchen tools. I use them in my dresser drawers to sort leggings, socks, bras, and shirts. Lastly, I use them in my bathroom drawers to sort body care, make-up, and other bathroom needs.

3. Ziplock Bag Storage Organizer: This is so extra, but I actually love it! It keeps all of my bags organized, and I do not have to deal with the flimsy cardboard boxes.

4. Greeting Card Storage: I actually have three of these because I keep greeting cards on hand for any and all reasons you would need them. It makes life simple when I'm sending out cards or headed to a party.

5. Mesh Reusable Bags: These bags are amazing for organizing drawers, packing, and organizing a work bag or backpack. You could also store and organize toys, makeup, office supplies, and so much more! 
Must have amazon finds

6. Dog Food Container: This has come in so handy because I can buy a huge bag of dog food and keep it fresh and away from the puppies.

7. Google Nest Mini Wall Mount: I love this wall-mount because it keeps my Google Nest mini up off of surfaces and you can't see the cords! Please note, the Google product doesn't come with this, it's the wall mount only. If you have the Google Home Mini then you need the wall mount found here

8. Spice Jar Set: This took my Spice drawer from a mix of spices and jar sizes to the perfect spice drawer. I can find what I'm looking for quicker and it looks so nice!

Create Your Own Word Search Activity for Kids (Free printable)

 The "Make Your Own Word Search" printable can be used in several different ways: 

  • Ask your kids to create a word search about a family member and give it to them as a gift. Remind the kids to use words that describe the person or why they like them. Like for my Grandma, I would include loving, tough, etc. 
  • Give your kids a topic like dogs and ask them to create a word search. This will keep their brains working and challenge them. You could give a prize at the end. 
  • Ask your kids to create a word search for their sibling; once they are finished, switch! 
  • Surprise your significant other with a word search that describes how you feel about them. (It can even be spicy!) 

There are two versions of the printable. One has a place for a name, date, and has a graphic. The second printable has a blank space for a topic or person's name and no graphics. 

If you can think of another way to use the "Make Your Own Word Search" printable, let me know in the comments. I can't wait to see what you think of!
