We have you covered from plain and simple date nights to action and adventure date nights, cute and romantic date nights to date nights at home, date nights outdoors, unique date night ideas, and everything else in between and sideways. We’ve got THE LOT so dive right on into all our excellent date night ideas 😊
Date Night Ideas
We’ve outlined some of our tippity top absolute fav date night ideas below. And if you’re on a budget we’ve got cheap AF date ideas too! A date night doesn’t have to be expensive and flashy (unless you’re one of THOSE people *side eye*). There are HEAPS of romantic and cute dates that won’t cost you a thing!
1. READY STEADY COOK
Using up to 10 random pantry and fridge ingredients, embark on a cook-off against each other. Choose your items wisely and assign 30 minutes in which to make it. Just like the show Ready Steady Cook, only one dish can win.
2. WHISKEY OR GIN TASTING
Book yourselves on a local spirit tasting. If there are none nearby, recreate one at home. Use this basic tasting sheet to guide you.
3. TV SHOW MARATHON
Snuggle up under a blanket on the sofa and binge a new show or your favourite series. Let UberEats be your chef tonight so you don’t have to lift a finger.
4. CAMPING IN THE BACKYARD
Bring the camping experience to you. Make sure you come prepared, so you don’t need to go into the house (well maybe just for the loo).
5. DIY COUPLE’S PROJECT
Go to a craft store, choose a project & create it together e.g. a comic strip of how you met, paint a scene from your life, build a frame to put a photo of you lovebirds in.
6. MARGARITA NIGHT
Get the chips, salsa and salt! Make a mega bowl of nachos and a fishbowl filled with margarita mix.
7. A NIGHT IN PARIS
Find a French recipe, decorate your dining room in a Paris theme, drink French wine, and talk in French accents.
8. GO TO A PLAYGROUND
Remember the joy of swings and merry-go-rounds? Kids shouldn’t get to have all the fun, right? Relive childhood memories with your partner and play until your head spins. End the night with a Happy Meal.
9. SCULPTING AT HOME
If you think clay modelling is just for kids, think again! Buy some clay or a sculpting set and make things like tea light holders, gifts, pots, and love signs. Don’t forget to buy paint to make them look pretty.
10. GO TO HOME OPENS FOR FUN
This one’s fun if you like looking at how other people live. Who knows, maybe you’ll find your dream home!
11. BEACH DATE
Grab your favorite nibbles and wine, and head to your favorite beach spot with your lover. Make a little cheese platter, pour a glass your wine, sit back, and enjoy. (Tip: bring plastic glasses, plates and utencils). For more beach ideas, check out these 12 Awesome Beach Date Ideas!
12. MURDER MYSTERY DATE NIGHT
Take your pick from the awesome selection of Unsolved Case Files from Amazon and have a night to remember as you crack a case like a real detective! Unsolved Case Files puts you in the shoes of a detective investigating a murder. You get a whole heap of information in the form of newspaper clippings, police documents, photos, evidence, and other items. Your job is to try and solve the mystery. Learn more about it in our Murder Mystery Date Night post here.
