  1. These are pretty cool suggestions, since If I have to do one more jigsaw puzzle on a Friday night, I might pull my hair out!
    Need some new fun ideas since I’m sick of the internet and the poor movie selections on Netflix!

  2. Uh, I don’t know what reality you live in, but everything in my city is…closed. Theaters, shops, parks, everything. Because of the pandemic.

    • Hey Celeste! I’m in your same reality—most things are closed where I live, too! This list features subscription boxes that offer an at-home date night experience as an alternative to going out. Though, I live near a large park, which has remained open during the whole pandemic—there are signs up reminding people to wear masks and keep a distance, and from my experience everyone seems to respect that. Sometimes I see couples having evening picnics away from everyone else, which I think is a nice idea. 🙂

  3. For the price of these you can afford to just go out and do something.. For the price you can hit up the movies then swing by the comic book shop for a cool bored game to take home after. Lol

    • Hey Tiffany! Like Celeste mentioned above, a lot of cities have asked restaurants and theaters and stores to temporarily close as a safety precaution during the pandemic. So these are options for while folks are staying home!
