Social distancing has us all looking for entertainment in the strangest places. Couples are also having to get creative when it comes to date nights – which are essential in the lead up to a wedding during an average wedding planning year, much less when couples are having to plan around a pandemic.

New Orleans stationery boutique Lionheart Prints recently featured puzzles on its social media and we think this could make for a fun date night activity — now, hear us out. Puzzles may not seem like an exciting endeavor for someone younger than our grandparents, but with all of us staying at home throughout the pandemic, this is an activity that can provide a moment of Zen, while working together with your partner to create something beautiful – or humorous.

A few of our favorites are the succulent-themed sets and the “Llama Rama” 500-piece set that is just hilarious.

We suggest ordering a puzzle — which you can pick up curbside daily from 1-3 p.m. at the Magazine Street Lionheart Prints location — order takeout to support a New Orleans restaurant and pair with a delivery from your favorite wine and spirits store. Complete the night’s lineup with a playlist – like the New Orleans Magazine Spotify dance party playlist – and you’ve got the perfect date night in.

Note: If you order from Lionheart Prints by 11 a.m. you can pick up the same day.
