When you find the one you love, it’s common to get comfortable and discover yourself getting lost in the day-to-day tasks your new life as a couple brings. Lucky for you, we’ve gathered five creative ways to spice up your next date night and bring you two closer than ever. Take a break from your mundane routine and surprise your partner with one of these the next time you need some excitement.
1. Go Camping
Among your list of camping must-haves, a portable power station is one of the most crucial. These gadgets help charge and power multiple devices at once while you unplug from the rest of the world and cozy up under the stars.
This date idea is great for outdoorsy couples who have been together for a while. It takes some commitment, but with the proper planning, it will be one of the best dates you’ll experience.
2. Get Crafty
Have you ever wanted to make pasta or create a pottery piece? Book a class for you and your partner and create a memorable experience while learning a new skill.
Whether learning how to paint, cook, throw clay, or even pick out the perfect bottle of wine, this is a great way to start a new hobby together or introduce your interests to one another.
3. Have a Friendly Competition
Show off your driving skills by visiting your nearest go-kart racing track, or take it slow with a round of bowling, miniature golf, or pool. Up the ante by declaring that last place pays for dessert or your next date!
Add some fun and excitement to your date by channeling your competitive side. This activity is fun for couples who want to compete against each other or other couples.
4. Watch Live Music
Find a venue or outdoor concert with live music and enjoy the evening jamming out or discovering a new genre. Not only can it be fun, but according to this study, watching live music can even help you live longer!
Don’t see any upcoming concerts on your city’s calendar? Take a trip to your local karaoke bar and take the stage solo or perform a duet. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to have some laughs and create some lasting memories along the way.
5. Visit an Amusement Park
For thrill-seekers, a day at the theme park can help bring you and your partner closer together. Scaryexperiences release more dopamine into the body, producing pleasure in the body and brain even after the ride.
Gather your courage while finding the tallest rides, and then wind down by heading to the Ferris wheel and snuggling up over the park. Don’t forget to stop by the food vendors and pick up a giant turkey leg to share!
Strengthen Your Relationship With These Date Ideas
With some preparation, you and your loved one don’t have to compromise fun for romance. Skip the ordinary dinner and movie date this weekend. Instead, shake things up and make it a day you both won’t forget.
