Family & Relationships
If you or another couple you know are thinking about having a baby soon or you see children in your future, then coming up with names is essential. Some couples spend countless days going through books and websites trying to come up with the perfect name. Many times, couples are unsure what their baby's name should be, and it takes time to come up with something they both can agree on. Get yourself some snacks, turn on some music, and have fun coming up with names. You can go through names off of the top of your head or look them up. The fun part is seeing which names your spouse likes and the ones that they refuse to give your child. The back story behind the names they won't accept can sometimes be more interesting than choosing a baby name.
Babysitting is a surprisingly fun date activity for those who need a little diversity in their lives. If you have grown kids, then babysitting will make you remember when your children were young. Those couples who don't have kids, but are thinking about having them, will benefit from babysitting since it'll give you the chance to see what having a family is like. Plan out fun activities for the child or children to do that everyone can participate in. An evening babysitting is a whole lot more fun than it sounds if you're the type of couple who loves children. You can also trade babysitting with another couple so you each have free sitters for your date nights.
Stuff a backpack with everything you need and go hit the trail. Where are the best places to go backpacking on a date? You could go to a park, a hiking trail, or someplace out in the wilderness. You could also turn backpacking into camping and have a date in the great outdoors. Just remember if you're planning on staying outside for an extended period to make sure that you have food and other supplies. Your date night will end up being a disaster if you are out in the wilderness with no food or water. Done right, backpacking makes a great date.
Camping in your back yard is a lot of fun. The nice thing is, all your amenities are inside your home if you need something. You're not really roughing it while camping in your yard, but you still get to enjoy the outdoors. It's always interesting to hear the sounds of the night you live in, and being in a tent gives you ample opportunity to do it. Put away all of the electronic devices that distract you and spend some quality time alone outside under the stars in your tent. Cuddling outside in the dark can be extra enjoyable and a welcome change of scenery. Pack plenty of finger foods and stuff you can eat without cooking it for the ultimate backyard experience.
Arts & Culture
The ballet is an extra special treat for any couple who loves dance and live music. Discuss with your spouse after the ballet what you think they were trying to get across. Usually, art has a message, and it's sometimes more subtle than others. Also, talk about which scenes you enjoyed the most. It will be fun to see if the two of you enjoyed the same scenes or different ones. Dance is a complicated art form, and it can be interpreted in many different ways. The more complex the ballet is, the more room there is for each of you to interpret it differently.
Playing baseball is a fun date that doesn't cost much if anything. There are so many different ways that you can turn baseball into a fantastic date. You can either find an established co-ed baseball or softball league or just find some friends or family to play with for fun. If you can't put a whole team together you can also play catch or hit the ball around together. Batting cages are also another option if you're looking to improve your game or just have some fun. If one of you is better at catching or hitting than the other they can help teach the other person. There are a lot of options out there, go ahead and play some baseball on your next date.
Grab a basketball, put on your sneakers, and head out to the nearest basketball court. You can play a little one-on-one or shoot hoops to see who can make the most baskets. Playing basketball is a great way to get exercise and some fresh air. Almost every park or playground has a basketball hoop. Show off and try to do some fancy shots while you're playing. You can even make videos of each other, showing off while trying to sink the impossible basket from far away.
Baseball fans know what batting cages are, but the rest of the world may not. A batting cage is a place where a machine pitches baseballs so you can hit them with a bat. The fun thing to do is to see how many of the balls you can hit. Eventually, you will get the hang of it and be a good hitter by the time you're done. A really fun thing to do is to encourage your spouse when they're at bat since you can't be in the cage with them. It's also kind of fun to try to razzle them a little if they whiff and miss the ball completely. Make it interesting with a friendly wager of who can hit the most balls.
Food & Drink
Nothing says fun like throwing some food on the barbecue. The smell of the food cooking is enough to make your mouth water in excitement. Grilling outside is the perfect excuse to have an outdoor picnic. Some parks have free grills that you can use if you bring your own charcoal. The thrill of a cookout is only outdone by how enjoyable it is to eat a freshly cooked fire kissed meal. Add with it some side dishes like chips, potato salad, or even grilled veggies for the ultimate BBQ date experience. Makes a great date for just you and your honey or as a group date.
A day at the beach is the perfect date, and there are a million things you can do. You can work on your tan, go for a quick dip, or even collect seashells. Bring a sack lunch with you and turn your beach date into a picnic. Find a secluded area and enjoy cuddling on the beach while you talk about whatever comes to mind. A beach is a romantic place that is filled with so many possibilities. All you need is a blanket and a sunny day to have fun. Small things like walking barefoot while the waves come crashing onto the beach are a lot of fun and offer plenty of enjoyable moments.
For those of you who don't know what beachcombing is, it's where you scour the beach for valuables or interesting items. The most common form of beachcombing is where you search the beach for seashells. If you've never been beachcombing before, you'll be shocked by all the things that you can find. Keeping an eye out for loot and other valuables while walking the beach is a great way to get some exercise and spend time with your spouse. Keep a stash box at home with all your beachcombing findings to look back and remember all the fun dates you had at the beach. For best results, find a time when there are few people on the beach so you have little competition for the objects that wash up.
You probably spend more time in your bedroom than in any other room in the house. A bedroom makeover is something you should do every once in a while to keep things fresh. A bedroom makeover can consist of cleaning and rearranging things or going all out and replacing everything that you can. Changing things up can really improve the feel. Take the opportunity to make your bedroom a little more sexy. If you're in for a wild experiment, allow your spouse to design the entire makeover. Allow your spouse to choose the bedsheets, the furniture, and whatever else you're willing to give them the power to change. You might be in for a jaw-dropping experience when you see how your spouse wants your bedroom decorated.
Berry picking gives you the opportunity to spend time together while also getting a good deal on tasty fruit. Usually, farms that allow you to pick your own berries sell the fruit at a discounted rate. You'll get to enjoy the great outdoors, breathe fresh country air, and spend some time together. If you get enough berries to preserve and enjoy over winter, you'll have a reminder of the fun you had on your fruit picking country date. For added fun, rush home right away and bake a pie using the fresh fruit you picked. This activity isn't just limited to berries, pick whatever fruits are available to you for your location and season, including berries, apples, peaches and more.
Binge-watching a new series is a great way to catch up with a show that you've never seen before. Get some snacks, a few refreshments, and plan on doing nothing all day but enjoy sitting in front of the TV. Binge-watching television shows is great if the weather outside is too messy or cold to do something else. If you really want to turn your binge-watching date into something spectacular, order a pizza and have a feast while watching your favorite shows. A few hours in front of the TV together is good because it allows you to have some precious downtime that couples usually don't get enough of.
Fun & Games
Bingo is an exciting game that is perfect for any date night. It's probably not the most exciting game for two, so find a few extra couples or a place where lots of people will be playing. Also, if you end up playing bingo in a church, you're giving back to the community. Pay close attention to your spouse as they think they're getting closer and closer to winning. Your spouse won't be able to contain their excitement, and it'll be super fun to watch. Who knows, you might win some money while playing bingo. The fun isn't just in the winning; it's in the excitement when the numbers are called, and you hope that your spots will be picked.
Bird watching is a date idea that can be done in the country or the city. Parks are great places to look for birds since they usually have plenty of wooded areas. Hiking trails are the perfect spots, and they are easy to walk through. If you live in the city, not near any wooded areas, it's still possible to go out and try to spot birds. Try to guess what species the bird is. If you have any problems figuring out what the bird is, snap a picture of it and upload it to Google Images. Google might be able to tell you what the bird is.
Fun & Games
A blanket fort is a lot of fun during those cold wintery days when you don't feel like going outside. Get underneath the blanket and create a fort. It's even more fun if you tell winter-related stories while underneath the blankets. Try to come up with the best coldest story that you can. Holiday-themed stories are fun too if it's near the holidays. It's so nice to be warm and cozy next to the person you love. The stories, the fort, and everything else will magically go away when the two of you are lost in the moment.
Going to a block party or even throwing a block party yourself is fun for the entire neighborhood. Why would you turn your date night into a party for everyone? Why not? There might be a reason you want to celebrate or just want to get the whole neighborhood together. If you're going to have a block party as a date, you'll probably want to notify the police beforehand. The police should be aware that there will be quite a bit of people going from house to house and having a good time. You wouldn't want your date to turn into an out of control party that makes the headlines in the newspaper the following day.
Blogging is a date activity that can quickly turn into a passion, or better yet, a career. You can start a free blog or use a paid host, so you have total control over it. The first thing you need to do is decide what you want to blog about. Maybe you want a family blog where you talk about everything that's going on. The blog's purpose may only be to connect your family members, so they know what's happening in your life. Set aside one evening a week or a month and create a blog post together. Blogging can be quite an enjoyable experience, and it can also be profitable, depending on the topic you're writing about.
Fun & Games
Board games aren't only fun when it's cold or rainy outside; they're also the indoor perfect date night activity. Board games such as Monopoly take a long time, but games such as Connect Four are much quicker. A small investment in a few games can yield several great date nights. Pop some popcorn, crack open a two-liter of soda pop, and have yourself a good time playing games. You will have fun, but more importantly, you'll get to have time alone with your spouse. Any excuse to be alone is a good one in the busy world that we live in.
