If you’re a couple, you might find that date night can get a bit stale, or even fall to the wayside. Whether you’re married, or just dating, you’ll find something on this list for you.
Have a read and take notes of anything that sparks an interest- it just might end up being your next date night!
- Go to a Cooking Class Together
Cooking classes are great if you need something new and engaging. You learn a new skill (or improve on one) and get to work together.
- Surprise your Partner with a Candlelight Dinner
Maybe you can’t leave the house, but you want to make things special. When your partner comes home (or when the children are in bed), surprise them with a special dinner, candles and some bubbly.
- Try a New Class Together
If you want to try a new class together, but cooking isn’t really your thing, then consider taking a different class together, like painting, or even an exercise class to get the blood pumping.
- Watch a Live Sports Game
Live sports games are a great way to enjoy a date, and rooting for your team can be a great bonding experience.
- Do Some Wine Tasting
Wine tasting is fun, regardless of who you are with, but it is extra special with your partner. Try a new place or book a private tasting to really ramp things up.
- Visit the Opera
The opera is amazing if you are a cultural enthusiast. Book tickets and go immerse yourself in something special.
- Visit an Art Gallery
Speaking of culture- an art gallery is a really good way to enjoy this without too much fuss. See if there are any interesting galleries in your area.
- Stroll Through a Botanical Garden
Classic, romantic and beautiful. A walk through a garden with your significant other is sure to boost the romance.
- Have a Movie Marathon
Pick a series that you are both interested in, or you can each pick a few movies. Grab some snacks and snuggle down to watch.
- Volunteer Somewhere
Volunteering can absolutely make you feel good. If you do it with your partner, you are likely going to feel even better. Spend quality time together helping others- a rewarding experience.
- Visit a Museum
This can be especially fun if you or your partner is a history buff. Learn about local history and grab a coffee afterwards.
- Have a Beach Picnic
Beaches are amazing, but we don’t always feel like swimming! Take some snacks instead and soak up the beauty around you.
- Go Camping
Camp in your back yard if you have to but get out into nature and take a break from the rest of the world.
- Try a Scavenger Hunt
Plan a scavenger hunt for your partner or go to a registered park and do it there. The thrill of the chase never really gets old.
- Watch Some Amateur Comedy
Comedy shows are great, but they can be a little pricey. Try an amateur comedy club and laugh at some up and coming talent.
- Train Together
Train for a run, a tournament or anything in between. This is a good way to build your relationship and learn how to do something amazing.
- Have a Backyard Picnic
If you can’t get out, try having a late-night picnic in your backyard. Go all out and have bubbly, fancy snacks and lots of pretty lights.
- Order Fancy Takeout
Okay, so ordering take-out isn’t new, but when was the last time you ordered the really good stuff? Do that tonight.
- Re-watch Your Wedding Video
If you’re married, this is an absolute classic. Nothing brings back the romance quite like watching that special day.
- Watch the Sunset
No matter where you are, you can find a spot to watch the sunset together. It’s classic, romantic and peaceful.
- Try Out an In-Home Couples Massage
A couple’s massage is incredible, but what if you can’t get out to do it? That’s where this in-home couples massage comes into play. Feel like a million bucks without even leaving the house.
- Sculp or Paint or Craft Something
You don’t have to be artistic to enjoy this one! Pick a project and do it with your partner. Laugh at your mistakes and have a great time.
- Make a Reservation at a Fancy Restaurant
If you usually go to whatever restaurants open, this will be extra special. Make sure you pick a really good one, make a reservation and go all out.
- Visit a Drive-In
If you still have a drive-in in your area, this is a good way to enjoy yourself. Its nostalgic and you have the privacy of your car to enjoy yourself.
- Have a Photo Shoot
Hire a professional, or just take some of your own! Capture some great memories, model, laugh and enjoy the time together.
