Love should be celebrated every day. Right? For those wanting to rekindle that fire or to impress a new love, why not try these wonderful date ideas? You don’t need a special day to tell someone you love them and to show how much you enjoy their company. Often, your time and attention are the best gifts you can give. Here are 10 date ideas you can enjoy any day.
#1 Run away for the day
Day Trips are an easy bet. For a luxuriating experience, try a spa weekend or treat yourself to a couples massage. If you’ve got a taste for the outdoors why not rent a cabin out of town? What’s more romantic than cuddling up in the wilderness with your loved?
#2 Recreate your first date
Nothing could be more romantic than recreating your first date with your partner. Whether you return to the cafe where you shared your first drink, eat the same food you both shared, this date is sure to impress. After all, it’s the thought that counts right? For those with kids, send the troopers to bed early! Rent the movie you first watched and snuggle up together. Ahem!
#3 The $0 date
This year try a ‘no gift no cash’ policy. This date is the real deal when it comes to finding out whether you and your partner are a match made in heaven. Think old DVDs, people watching, window shopping, etc.
#4 Jump for your love
Two facts for you: Exercise induced endorphins improve your happiness AND doing new things together as a couple ignites the same feeling as falling in love.
Head to your local Flip Out trampolining arena and spend the afternoon jumping around like a kid with your partner. Mixing up dates with a fun activity is sure to keep those butterflies alive!
#5 Catch the sunrise together
Unless you’re not a morning person, in which case there’s always the sunset!
#6 Play some putt putt
It’s a fun game to play and you don’t need to be great at golf. It’s a wonderful opportunity if you want to get to know someone or simply kick-start a conversation if your dating magic has gone a little rusty.
#7 Karaoke Challenge
Whilst it may not be a first date activity, you’ve surely been together long enough to relish in a little embarrassment. Let each other pick out a song and give those vocal chords a workout. If you head to a local bar prior, you’ll forget how offensive each other’s voices really are.
#8 Hire a Moped
And drive. Literally, any direction, to any destination. In the countryside or an island. Everyone knows how much fun adventures can be. How long has it been since you two have done something crazy?
#9 Take a cooking class together
Pick a fun one. Like chocolate-making that includes tasting all of the goodies. Or if you’re adventurous, sign up to cook something exotic that you’ve never tried before. A way to anyone’s heart is the tummy!
#10 Double Date
For those couples who could do without another night in with their other half, why not enlist one of your favourite couples and hit up your favourite restaurant? Making fun of the hopeless romantics staring into each other’s eyes should provide endless entertainment.
