    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I have been together for two months and literally have felt like we have known each other since the day we met. I wanted to find some more ways to get to know him better as I’ve asked every question I could possible think of LOL. I didn’t look at a single card before we played and it really helped further strengthen our relationship. The different categories make sure you leave no part of your significant others life unturned! I highly recommend!" —Braxton

It was romantic with adorable lovely candles, great instructions on how to paint, and even adorable questions that let us bond more :) I loved that the instructions encourage you to paint each others canvases, allowing the painting to blend together.

    Promising review: "I love love this board! It is beautiful and sturdy. The utensils work perfectly to cut cheese and pick up meats. Because of COVID-19 my hubby and I celebrated our 15-year anniversary at home this year. I wanted something extra special and figured a charcuterie board would be perfect and this board was beautiful when I put all our goodies on it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    7. A TikTok-famous microwavable popcorn popper, in case you need something to snack on during your Netflix-and-chill session.

    Promising review: "I love this thing so much! I have avoided bagged popcorn for years because of the weird film it has, plus it just doesn't taste as good as stovetop. But cooking popcorn on the stove is messy and it takes forever and it's hard to judge the oil to kernel ratio. This is the best of both worlds. The little top gives you an idea of how much to use, and you can cook your popcorn in the microwave in a few minutes. It's really the best, and it tastes just like stovetop popcorn. You can add whatever toppings you like and make it as light or as buttery as you wish. This would also make a great gift for friends and family who are missing movie theater popcorn." —Rhianna

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors and two sizes).

    8. Or a box stuffed with tons of snacks, so you'll basically have your own at-home concession stand.,

    Get it from Amazon for $25.45.

    9. A picnic set so you can have a romantic candle-lit indoor picnic whether you're in the living room, backyard or on the balcony.

    10. A comfy sherpa blanket — because the best part of an at-home date night is getting your snuggle on with no risk of being the annoying PDA couple.

    Promising review: "We've been sleeping without a nice blanket for far too long. It's usually just a thick comforter and a sheet. Cold nights often made the bed far too uninviting and it never really felt like it warmed up. So, I spend a little bit of money and got this nice fluffy blanket. It's ridiculously soft and very pleasant to touch. It definitely keeps the bed warmer and gives a nice snuggly feel that we didn't have before. We sleep on a full size bed and this fits with plenty of 'extra' to spare (which basically just means my wife can steal a bunch of blanket for herself and I still have more than a corner to myself.) I'm glad I bought it; it looks nice and keeps us warm, which was exactly why I bought it." —Christopher Lang

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in four sizes and 34 colors).

    11. A customizable photo puzzle so you can piece together one of your favorite memories and reminisce on the times when not-at-home date nights were still a thing.

    Promising review: "Bought this for a stay-in date night. We had done a couple of escape rooms before in larger groups, and the puzzles were just as fun as a duo. Took us about an hour and fifteen minutes ... He kept raving about it today, so we are definitely looking for more in the series." —Iron Angels

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    13. Or an unsolved mystery game so you can finally put all those hours you've spent watching true crime documentaries to good use. It'll basically turn your home into a real life Clue board.
