1. Escape Room At Home Interactive Date Ideas
Finder's Seekers is the ultimate escape room at home date! And I'm not exaggerating when I say this has been the most fun at-home date night we've ever done. So I have to mention this one first. I gifted a box to my husband for Valentine's Day and we had so much fun working on solving this puzzle together!
Finder's Seekers has monthly subscription options (where you get a new mystery to solve each month) or you can just buy a one-time mystery box. Not only is this great for date night, but family fun!
I was amazed at the detail and thought that goes into each mystery. We worked on our mystery for almost 3 hours, although you could easily split it up into more than one date. We didn't want to stop!
Each box content varies, but each month there are abundant cryptic clues and puzzles to get your heart racing and brain ticking. You'll transport to a unique locale for each 'Find' where you'll uncover underground cultures and explore local traditions. You'll need to rely on good 'ole fashioned research and online tools to make your way to the 'Find.'

34. Plan your dream vacation together
Spare no expense. Research and plan your dream vacation. Where will you go? And once you have found the destination of your choice, plan the itinerary. Book the flight tickets, contact the hotel you want to stay at, and start packing your clothes. However, in the hustle and bustle of planning a vacation, do not forget that you will be leaving your dwelling vacant for a good amount of time.
This means you would have to install security fixtures to keep your abode safe. Get a few CCTV cameras installed on the porch and update the locks of your front door. Additionally, make sure that any pending repairs are addressed before leaving. For instance, if you have cracks on the roof, then get it repaired with the help of a skilled roofer. Otherwise, upon returning back from the trip, you might find that your house has been flooded and all your belonging damaged due to the rain water that seeped through the unattended cracks.
