Now that you have the rules down, let’s go on to some fun suggestions of activities for date night.
Have a picnic. You can simply put a blanket on the living room floor and either order some of your favorite foods or swing by and get some takeout on your way home. If the weather is nice, have your picnic outdoors with fairy lights and make smores over a fire pit or grill.
If you are outdoors, consider picking up a book on the constellations and see which one of you can recognize them first.
Pick up some adult beverages and have a wine, beer, or drink-tasting party. You can get adventurous with several different brands and types of beer or several small bottles of liquor like you see on an airplane. You can even make it a frozen drink-tasting night by making different frozen drinks to try. You may discover a new favorite beverage for both of you in the process.
Be sure to include some snacks that go with the beverages and serve them on plastic dinnerware to save yourself from cleaning afterward.
Choose several pints of different flavored ice creams from different brands. Just because you usually have one favorite, doesn’t mean you can’t have more than one favorite. On the other hand, you can choose both of your favorite flavors, but in different brands, and compare them. Differences between brands with the same flavor are many including some being sweeter, creamier, or richer in taste.
We all know that a good ice cream sundae is the love language of a romantic date night idea.
Get your singing voices out. Search for karaoke on YouTube and you will find a huge selection of different types of music and songs to belt out your favorite tunes. You can sing like nobody’s listening since you are the only two in the room.
That’s right have a game night! You can play video games and choose a game that is new to both of you to make it fair. See which of you has the bigger knack for learning the ins and outs of new games. You can even designate a prize in advance for the big winner.
Grab a comfy blanket or air mattress and put it on the living room floor. You can lie there together and have a movie marathon, then fall asleep together.
You and your partner can exchange foot rubs or massages after setting a timer so each of you gets the same amount of time with a relaxing rub or massage.
Fondue night is always fun to do together. You can choose cheese for the sauce and dip different types of meats in it, or go all out and do a chocolate fondue with fruit and marshmallow for a dipper. This makes for a casual dinner instead of the normal sit-down-to-the-table meal at night.
Find a recipe from another culture that neither of you has had before and prepare the meal together. This is a great way to explore your taste buds as a couple together and have fun in the process. If you decide to have a Greek food night, you can put a Greek movie on to watch while you eat dinner.
Think of the items you like as snacks and appetizers at a party. Grab some chips and dips or vegetable trays, fruit trays, or any other appetizers you like, and have a super casual meal of cheese, crackers, and sausage.
Get out an easel or just the canvas and paints and put them on a table. Paint together on the same canvas and help add pizzazz to your partner’s painting. You can explore your tastes in art together this way–and if you only are good at drawing stick people, it doesn’t matter. It’s about the time spent together with your partner.
Make a homemade pizza together. You can buy the dough for the crust if you don’t want to take the time to make it from scratch. Throw all of the toppings you like on it and pile it high. You don’t have to limit it to a few ingredients because of the price as you do with delivery or takeout.
You and your partner get some different types of food together and don’t let the other see what you choose. Cover the foods in two different areas with a towel so there’s no peeking. Blindfold your partner and give them tastes of sweet and savory foods and make them guess what it is. You can use peanut butter, whipped topping, candy, honey, strawberries, other fruits, and cream cheese.
When you get pretty good at this one, do a blind taste test with variances of one item, such as shredded cheeses to make it harder to guess.
Take YouTube dance lessons together. You don’t need to go to an instructor or even pay anything to do this together. Learn to do different ballroom dances at home–since no one can see you, it doesn’t matter who steps on the other feet the most.
Play a board game or card game together. You can choose from a huge variety of these and never feel like it’s getting old. Some couples like to play board or card games that they played as a child.
Get a super fancy dessert from a nearby bakery or restaurant and share it together. This can go with your meal from another culture night or it can be a standalone activity.
These ideas can get you started on date nights to grow closer together as a couple. You can also mix and match activities and have candlelight dinners or dress up in your fanciest outfits for dinner together.
