How about staying this Sunday at home with your spouse and plan for a date? Well! That might sound bit weird thinking what possibly can you do the entire day on a date at home?
When we say ‘date,’ we plan a day out on for a movie with some good food or even go out on a day trip. Will a date at home be enjoyable? Won’t that be boring?
I feel that a date means spending a good time together and sharing good memories.
My husband and I sometimes prefer to stay indoors on Sunday when we are too tired to spend another day out driving through the city traffic. We manage to do plenty of exciting things which keeps us motivated and of course not dull. There are so many creative and happy things you can think of on a Sunday date at home. Here are my 25 cool Sunday date ideas at home for married couples.
A date idea for a pizza night could be fun. Just order your favorite pizza for home delivery and enjoy the dinner date with some soda.
- Home Dance Studio
If you and your spouse love to do some dance, then you can think of creating an ambiance for dancing with some music playing in the background. Start dancing with your partner like you are on a dance floor.
- Play a Board Game
I love playing board games. We pretty much enjoy playing every alternative day of the week. Don’t make a mistake to think that board games are only for kids. Even grown-ups can enjoy playing board games.
- Make dinner together
I am sure we all enjoy cooking. Cooking together as a couple makes your relationship stronger and healthier. Also, it adds creativity which is interesting, and it keeps you engage in an activity.
- Enjoy watching a movie together with a big bowl of popcorn
Do I need to elaborate on it anymore? Who doesn’t love films but it feels great when you watch it together sitting on a couch with a bowl full of some caramel popcorn.
- Sing karaoke
Why spending dollars when you can do that free at home? Start singing by just choosing a song on the YouTube with lyrics/CC of it. There will be no one to judge you so who cares about what you sing, enjoy your time.
- Arrange a Romantic Candle Light Dinner
When we go out to a candlelight dinner, it is always so romantic visually. But you can arrange that even at your home. You cook something delicious and let your spouse arrange the table with some aromatic candles, flowers, and plates. A glass of wine will lift an essence to your date.
- Surprise, Surprise
It gives us good vibes when we receive gifts from our spouse specifically when it is a surprise. You can gift each other and tell each other how much you care and love.
- Do Painting Together
Sometimes when we choose to spend our Sunday on doing recreational activities that we love, like painting is one of such things. Grab two canvases, colors, brushes and let your creative thoughts pour into the board. It is indeed a good and creative date idea I believe.
- Plan together your next vacation
Planning your next vacation together is a cool date idea that can be done at home.
- Look at your marriage album and cherish beautiful memories
Like us, you all want to remember those special moments of your life again and again. Looking at the marriage album makes us nostalgic and makes us feel good about each other.
- Bake cake or cookies
The kitchen isn’t only for the woman of the house. Get involved in other cooking activities like baking with your spouse. Plan your day for baking a cake and buy all the ingredients the previous day.
- Watch a Netflix/Hulu/HBO/Amazon Prime series
Digital Media Entertainment is booming day by day by featuring more than hundreds of entertaining movies and series. If you love watching the Original series or old classics without advertisement, then simply opt for Digital Content. Although all the above Digital Contents have monthly/annual subscription fees.
- Clean your room together
Cleaning? Is it an ideal Sunday date idea? If it fulfills the motive of your date which is to spend good time together then yes cleaning could also be considerate as a date.
- Play truth or dare
Besides board games, you can also play truth or dare. What you need is only a bottle and enjoy the game. Trust me; it is a lot more fun game than it sounds.
- Play an instrument
If either of you knows to play any instrument like keyboards, guitar or anything. It could be a great date idea that a couple can enjoy at home.
- Wash your car/motorbikes together
Yes, washing vehicle together is quite an amusing way to spend quality time together. We tried once, and it turned out to be wonderful. Cleaning car or motorbike together and getting dirty gives a couple to take a shower together which is incredibly romantic.
- Write down on a paper each other’s wish list
Everyone has a wish list. Try writing it down and check how many of them haven’t yet fulfilled. Or check out whose is a long wish list.

Now debates are something that you can add on your Sunday date. Choose an interesting topic and start one on one debate. Discussions are good as it reveals one’s thinking process.

- Watch funny and hilarious videos
Both can enjoy watching funny and entertaining videos on Social Media and laugh out loud. What can be better than laughing together and sharing a happy moment?
- Take a cozy nap
Taking a cozy and comfortable afternoon nap on a lazy Sunday is always fun. Sharing the same blanket and with tight hugs, a quick nap is romantic and worth staying at home.

Sharing childhood memories or memories that are close to your heart to each other. Go back to the past and rewind the memories. Listen and know about each other’s past life.
