8 Date Night Ideas You’ll ACTUALLY Want To Do!


We’ve all been there. A stressful week filled with a combination of work, school, kids, sickness, family, you name it, but there’s one thing that keeps you going: 

Date night. 

Friday evening rolls around and you can’t wait to go out with your special someone; until you can’t decide what you’re going to do. 

Panic sets in, and you frantically start googling for “Dates to do near me”, which only brings up the movie theatre and the ice cream shop (which aren’t bad options, but we’ve done that a million times before).

We’ve been in this situation so many times we compiled a list of date nights we (and you) will actually want to do when nothing comes to mind!

Let’s get going, date night is waiting!

A perfect combo- give it a try! 

  1. Card Game Competitions

It’s time to bring out the playing cards! One of my favorite dates with Bryant was sitting outside under a pavilion while it was raining, and beating him 5x in a row at slapjack. We couldn’t stop laughing (and I was pretty happy to finally win at something). 

Here are some classic card games you can play anytime, anywhere: 

  1. The Meal Game

Just as hard as choosing a date, is choosing where you’re going to eat. This new date night recently went viral on TikTok. The couple goes to their local grocery store and rocks paper scissors over the following meal categories:

  1. Appetizer
  2. Main course
  3. Desert
  4. Drinks

The winner of the first rock paper scissors round picks out what the couple will eat the appetizer, then the main course, and so on. They then check out, take it home, and make the meal together. A simple and fun way to spice up a dinner date!

  1. Geocaching:

Geocaching is the perfect adventure for couples who love a little mystery and exploration. It’s like a modern-day treasure hunt where you use GPS coordinates to find hidden caches or containers filled with surprises. Working together to solve clues and navigate to these hidden gems can be incredibly fun and satisfying. It’s a unique way to bond, enjoy the great outdoors, and uncover hidden treasures while creating lasting memories.

Here is a Geocaching app and website you can use to get started!

  1. Couple’s Pottery Class

A couple’s pottery class offers a blend of creativity and closeness. It’s a chance to get your hands dirty, mold clay into beautiful shapes, and share a hands-on experience with your partner. There’s a certain charm in crafting your own dinnerware or decorative pieces that you’ll cherish for years to come.

  1. Make Sushi at Home

Sushi-making is not just about preparing delicious food; it’s also about having a blast while doing it. Learning to roll your own sushi can be a delightful journey into Japanese cuisine and teamwork. Couples will find joy in experimenting with various ingredients, perfecting their rolling techniques, and indulging in mouthwatering results. Plus, there’s a sense of accomplishment in creating something so delectable together.
