We are all still staying at home a little longer than we anticipated or would have liked and are pretty much all suffering from zoom quiz fatigue! If someone brings up a zoom quiz night I think I am at a stage where I will scream.
Luckily, I have done some research and found so many incredible ‘at home’ experiences that you can choose from, ranging from delicious dinners to having a puzzle night in, perfect for making date night or family nights more fun and interactive!
Here is a round up of my favourite stay at home experiences that you can buy and have delivered to your doorstep right now.
Puzzle Night In – Your Big Night In
We experienced one of ‘Your Big Night In’s experiences – their Puzzle Night In and it was one of the best evenings we have had at home in a long time as we put our phones aside, just had the laptop handy in case we needed some clues and spent our time and attention on solving a super fun puzzle that made us use our brains in an engaging way – much better than a zoom quiz!
They also have a Karaoke Night In and the Ultimate Movie Night In available as options. All you have to do is pick what type of night in you want, select the experience and have everything you need delivered to your door. The best part is they now deliver nationwide too!
How it works is the box comes with a mysterious message from Puzzle Post and some clues and you need to work through them in order to crack the code to complete the game and unveil a message.
Honestly, I would do it all over again as it was so nice to do an activity that had us thinking, sorting through physical clues and discussing it!
This would make such a fantastic family night in or date night or a perfect gift to surprise someone with!

Have a Sri Lankan Night In with Kolamba via RestoKits
Loving all the ‘at home’ dining options lately, especially as you can try food from restaurants that have been on your list for a while! It is also a fantastic way to have an evening travelling to a different destination via some incredible cuisine!
We absolutely loved Kolamba via RestoKits and and a beautifully packaged box full of enticing Sri Lankan flavours arrives just in time for the Weekend. We had picked the Pork Curry box for two, priced at £45 and with it you got:
- Roasted Pork curry
- Aromatic basmati rice
- Dhal (Lentils) 300g
- Beetroot curry 300g
- Green bean curry 300g
- Toasted Pol Sambol (coconut chilli)
- Mango chutney
The portions were really generous and lasted us almost 3 meals between 2 of us! Favourites were the green bean curry and the beetroot curry and we were both addicted to the Pol Sambol!
They also have a vegetarian, chicken and mutton option available to choose from too.

Fondue Night In
If you’re keen to shake things up a bit when it comes to lockdown dinners, I can’t recommend Provision’s Cheese Fondue Kit enough! You can receive it nationwide via Restokits and you receive about 475g of vacuum packed Provisions fondue mix (a blend of 3 different mountain cheeses), 10cl of white wine, a bag of bread cubes and a garlic clove.
It is SO delicious! Fret not if you don’t have a fancy fondue pot – it works just as well in a saucepan.
The kit costs £29 and you can buy it here: https://www.restokit.co.uk/collections/provisions
