Whether you’re celebrating a special milestone or simply just spicing up a weekly date, we’ve some fun date night ideas that will get you fun quality time together!
(1) Turn dinner and movie into a mini vacay
Turn the classic dinner and movie into miniature vacation by eating dinner from the movie destination. Watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi and then finish the night with a meal at a Japanese restaurant. Big Italian family drama movie? Hit up a fun Italian restaurant afterwards.
(2) Have an at-home Chopped competition
Spice it up in the kitchen and get competitive. Pick a random ingredient (or if you want a challenge – a mix of ingredients) and prepare a dinner using the ingredient. You can set the rules – is it one special ingredient?
(3) Get Sweaty Together
You don’t have to be fitness buffs to enjoy a class together. Swap out your typical dinner out and head to a yoga class or go rock climbing! Finish off the date with a delicious and nutritious dinner so that you can keep the good vibes going!
(4) Be a tourist in your own city
You might scoff at this but there are some really cool views and things to do in your own city. Visit the local aquarium, art gallery or museum. Just be shameless for a day and enjoy the city through another lens.
(5) Have a gourmet picnic at home
Put together baskets, blankets, and candles if you want to be fancy and bring them out to your living room, porch, yard, or balcony. Dress up to make it feel like more of an outing. Have a lavish meal of wine, cheese, baguette and delicious cured meats!
