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.
Romance & Relationship
If you're expecting a baby anytime soon, a babymoon is a great way to get away, especially if it's your first child. Newly expecting parents have no idea what they're in for. Take this opportunity now, and take a load off of your feet while you can. A vacation now is the right idea since it will become much harder to take vacations for quite some time. Your babymoon can be as simple as a staycation where you stay at home or as elaborate as flying to another country. Since your babymoon will be the last big vacation you take for a while, make it memorable! Your babymoon will be a date like no other. You'll remember your babymoon for years to come, and that's what will make it so special.
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.
Badminton is instant fun, no matter if you're a novice or a pro. The fun of badminton is that you get to run around while trying your best not to let the birdie hit the ground. Badminton can be played in your backyard, in a parking lot, or at the park. A game of badminton can last a few minutes, or you can make it an hours-long event. If you're short on time, head out into the backyard and hit the birdie around a little. If you have more time, make it a longer date and bring along a picnic and take a break and eat between your badminton sessions.
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.
Fun & Games
The first thing that probably comes to mind when you think of balloon twisting is clowns. As you probably know, clowns or others who are good at balloon twisting can make all kinds of things out of balloons. You can learn how to make all kinds of things out of balloons by watching a couple of YouTube videos. You can buy the balloons required for twisting at almost any party shop or even online. The balloons used for twisting are inexpensive, and that's why this is a fun date idea nearly all couples can do. You can create all kinds of balloon figures and give them to neighborhood children or kids in your family. All kids love balloons, and they like them even more if they're in fun shapes. If you're planning on twisting your own balloon creations, make sure you have the pump too, blowing up these balloons can be very difficult without it.
Base jumping is a fantastic date for the couple who loves adrenaline rushes or to check things off of their bucket lists. Base jumping is where you jump off of high things and then parachute down, and it's exhilarating! You do need some training and understanding of how to jump safely before making any such attempts. Find a place that offers the sport and can help you learn how to be safe and ultimately make that jump. Be sure to get whatever pictures you can so you have some cool mementos of your extreme date. Everyone has a natural amount of fear in them, and overcoming your fears is incredible.
Going to a baseball game is one of America's favorite pastimes. There are seats in the stadium for all budgets, and that means any couple who wants to go to a ballgame can. To make your baseball date even more enjoyable, deck yourself out in your favorite team's apparel. If you don't have any clothing with your favorite team's logo on it, make sure to wear the team's colors. It's fun to look as much of a fan as possible to show everyone that you are their number one supporter. If you have the extra money, the food at stadiums is always delicious, and they have what seems like a never-ending supply of snacks to munch on while watching your favorite team play.
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.
Catching a baseball game on TV is a fantastic date idea for those who don't feel like leaving the house. Watching a game on television allows you to see the players up close as you would never be able to in a stadium. Another great aspect of watching the game at home is that you can eat all kinds of snacks and prepare your own food, which costs a fraction of what you would pay at the stadium. Decorate your living room in the spirit of your favorite team, and don't be shy about cheering them on when they are at-bat. Watching your favorite baseball team at home is exciting because you can let loose without caring what other people think.
Going to a basketball game is a dream come true for anyone who loves the sport. There are so many date opportunities when it comes to basketball that couples can enjoy. You can go to a high school basketball game, a college game, or see the professionals in action. No matter who you see play, it will be exciting to watch the players do what they do best. Sometimes it is more enjoyable to watch local players since they are not showing off for the camera. Bring a little extra money with you if you would like to enhance your date by enjoying snacks such as popcorn and drinking things such as soda pop.
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.
Watching a basketball game on television is a fantastic date because of the excitement of the live event. If you want to make sure that your basketball date is exciting, watch two teams that you know will be fierce competitors. The best time to watch basketball on TV is during the playoffs when the stakes are high, and both teams are fighting to get to the championship. You can order food and have it delivered, whip up your own game day food and have a feast, or settle for an old reliable snack like popcorn. It's best to eat something while watching the game because food enhances the excitement. If the two of you are fans of a local team, consider wearing your jerseys to show your team spirit while watching the big game. Watch the game just the two of you or invite over another couple or two to share the fun.
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.
A Battle of the Bands is where 2 or more bands compete for the honor of being called the best band. Going to a Battle of the Bands can be a fun date activity for the two of you. Live concerts are always entertaining, but multiple bands trying to outdo each other can be even more fun. Or maybe you'd be interested in competing against each other in your own Battle of the Bands. If so, you can play the video game of the same name. You and your spouse would compete against each other to see which band performs the best. Some couples like to play games, but they're not into violent video games. Battle of the Bands is a fun game without violence. If it's a rainy day outside and your date plans have been ruined, or you want to enjoy a little downtime at home playing games, Battle of the Bands is something you should look into. Battle of the Bands is a game that takes a little time to become a master at, and it's an excellent excuse to turn it into a few more date nights.
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.
