If you are going on a first date, dinner is normally a good enough plan – but if you’ve been dating for a while, you may start to realise that you are running out of date ideas. After all, it can be difficult to think of new, fun places to go… but thankfully we have your back. We have scoured the internet for fun date ideas, and chosen the best for you.
Here are 12 unique date ideas.
1. Take a day road trip
Pick a city or town that isn’t too far from you and over to explore. Try to find a scenic route so that you can enjoy the drive, and then spend the day exploring a new area.
2. Try birdwatching
Some of the most fun, romantic activities are outdoors, and this includes birdwatching. You don’t need to be mad about birds; just head to a park that offers birdwatching walks, or sit in your back garden and see if you can name the birds.
3. Make homemade pizzas
Buy some pizzas bases and get creative with the pizza toppings. You could even try making a dessert pizza!
4. Dress up and go somewhere fancy
Put on your fanciest clothes and head to a luxurious bar. Try a few cocktails together – but remember not to overspend, especially if you are on a budget!
5. Do a DIY project together
Go on Pinterest and find a fun DIY project, and then try to complete it together.
6. Spend the night camping
Get your tent (or borrow one from a friend if you don’t have one) and set it up in the back garden. Light a fire and toast marshmallows, and consider taking a break from technology. This will give you the chance to truly connect with each other!
7. Shop for each other
Head to the local store, set a budget of $10 (or £10!) and buy things for each other.
8. Do something risky
Take a risk and try skinny dipping, or something else that you shouldn’t really be doing. This will bring you together, and it will make for a great story in the future!
9. Go fruit picking
Go berry picking or apple picking. This will give you the chance to really talk to each other.
10. Go to a local museum
Show your date your local museum so that they learn more about your hometown.
11. Go stargazing
Stargazing may seem like a cliché date idea, but this is because it is so romantic! And don’t worry if you don’t know any of the constellations; you can download the Night Sky app to work out what you are looking at.
12. Rent a car
If you don’t have a car consider renting one and going for an adventure. You could explore your area, or you could plan a fun weekend break.
