Every car owner knows that they need to change their oil. Many car owners don't change the oil often enough in their cars. If the two of you have never changed a car's oil, you're in for a really exciting adventure. Changing the oil isn't difficult, but it can be messy for first-timers. If one of you has changed the oil before, none of it will be much of a surprise to you. The oil in your car is the lifeblood of your engine. It's surprising to see what the oil looks like, and the two of you are in for a real shock with this date. Wear old clothes and make sure to have plenty of rags nearby because changing your oil is messy even for those who are highly experienced.

Singing in a choir is an uplifting experience, and it is a wonderful thing to share with your spouse as a date. Churches are the most common places where you can sing in a choir. There are many date opportunities for you to sing in the choir. For example, choir practice, choir at church services, or you could even get together the choir to sing at a place like a nursing home. Practicing at home is also fun if you are in the choir and need to brush up a little bit before singing with everyone else. You will be amazed by how invigorating both of you feel after your choir date because singing enables you to let go of your emotions and temporarily forget about everything in the world around you.

Making your own Christmas cards is a great way to spend some time together as a couple. By making your own Christmas cards, you'll spread holiday cheer in a way that is as unique as you are as a couple. Your friends and family will love receiving your one-of-a-kind Christmas cards. You can turn creating Christmas cards into multiple dates. You can create your Christmas cards and then prepare them to be sent off. Taking your Christmas cards to the post office can be another date. Walk to the post office if weather permits or go out to eat to celebrate sending off your Christmas cards.
Christmas lights and decorations can really bring the Christmas season alive. As a fun date idea, take a stroll through your own neighborhood or a drive anywhere else that you'd like. Take in the lights, decorations and even the feel of the cold air on your cheeks as you go. Setting up your own decorations can also be a fun activity. Setting up Christmas lights, no matter if it's inside your home or outside, is a two-person job. Why not turn this event into a date night activity? It's even more fun if you treat yourselves with a cup of hot chocolate after you're done. You'll think about the hot chocolate the entire time that you're stringing up the lights. Talk about some of your favorite Christmas memories from years gone by while you're putting up the lights. If you have children, then there are plenty of memories to talk about while you put up the lights.
If you've never been to church before, it's a great place to go. If you are a member of a church, then there are all kinds of activities you can attend. If it's near the holidays, there's always something going on. An active church will have events all the time, and usually, they're free to join. You can enjoy the festivities or volunteer and donate your time to a good cause. Church activities always make for a great date idea because it allows you to spend time with your spouse, and it also strengthens your relationship with your God or your spirituality.
The circus is fun for all ages. Seeing the clowns, the animals, and all the hijinks is a total blast. The circus is best enjoyed with plenty of snacks and refreshing beverages. If you're lucky, one of the clowns will ask you to join them in their fun. A fun-filled evening is what you'll have when the circus comes to town. Sometimes during intermission, the clowns will pose with the audience, and they might have some animals with them too. Pay to have your picture taken so that you can always remember the great time the two of you had at the circus.
Something magical happens when it gets dark outside, and the city you live in begins to light up. A drive through your city at night opens up a new world that you rarely see if you're never out late. Pay attention to all the signs and how your favorite stores and restaurants look when they're illuminated. The world comes alive at night, and there's no better proof of that than when the neon lights start to flicker. Point out which signs are your favorite and try to guess which ones your spouse might like the most. Try to find a little extra elevation for an even more beautiful scene.
A stroll through a city park is as good for the mind as it is the body. Put on some comfortable shoes, wear loose-fitting clothing, and put one foot in front of the other and enjoy the great outdoors. Not only are you getting a healthy dose of exercise, but going for a walk on a date night is an excellent way of opening the lines of communication. Don't forget to hold hands while the two of you are walking; it will increase the likelihood that you talk to each other. Sometimes dates like this aren't about the activity, but the opportunity to spend some quality alone time together.
City tours can be fun dates. You can either do a tour of your own city or another further away. No matter how long you've lived in your city, there are still plenty of things that you don't know. A city tour will open up your eyes to many things that you never knew about the place that you call home. City tours are also fun during the holidays if they go all around town looking at the decorated houses and businesses. Take your city tour date to another level by going out to eat afterward. You may want to make videos on your phone to remember what the tour guide teaches you. The videos would also be fun to show people when you talk to others about your date.
It seems no matter how much you clean, everything is always dirty. Are you and your spouse neat freaks? If so, a date filled with cleaning is right up your alley. If not, your house could probably use a little extra attention. It will only take you a minute or two to think of all the things in your home that need cleaning. A great idea to turn your date into something spectacular is to offer to clean the home of someone who is disabled, elderly or otherwise could use the help. A cleaning date helping out someone is a great way to spend some time together and to make life better for someone else.

Cliff jumping takes quite a bit of courage, and it's something that an adventurous couple can pull off. The most exciting cliffs to jump off are those that are near deep bodies of water. Make sure you do your research before doing any cliff jumping so that you can find a safe place to do it. Nothing is more exciting than falling towards the water and knowing that at any minute you're going to smack right into it. For added excitement, both of you should jump off of the cliff at the same time. The look on each other's face will be priceless as you fall towards the water. The expression on both of your faces will be pure ecstatic when you rise to the water and first look at the other.
Cloud watching is a free activity that gives you an insight into the inner working of your spouse's mind. All you do is find a comfortable place to sit or lay and look up towards the heavens. Each of you says the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the clouds. Use this moment to get close to each other and to enjoy being in their arms. It's less about the clouds than it is about being together. Turn your cloud watching into a picnic and enjoy an even longer time outside together.

Being a mentor is something that so many couples don't see themselves as, but they are. One idea is to become a mentor to young couples who are thinking about getting married. You can also mentor couples who are recently married that might be experiencing a few rough patches in their relationship. If you have experience or expertise in other areas, see how you can share it with others. Your life experiences are valuable, and you can help guide people in many different directions. There are so many people who can benefit from your knowledge, and turning it into a date is a fantastic way to spend some time together while giving back to others. And remember, mentoring is a two-way street. You can mentor others or find a mentor that can help you as well.
Food & Drink
Hitting up your local coffee shop or juice bar is a great date idea for married couples. If you want to kick up your date a few notches, get something sweet to go along with your drinks. Most coffee shops have cookies, donuts, or other pastries that you can enjoy while sipping on your coffee. The old school donut shops are so much fun because they usually have delicious fresh donuts and bottomless cups of coffee. The quality of coffee at restaurants has increased over the years, and even fast-food restaurants now have good enough coffee to enjoy during a date.
Quite a few couples share a love of collecting items. Do both of you like to collect the same things? If so, then turn hunting the items into a date. If not, help build each other's collections together. You can go to flea markets, estate auctions, or garage sales to find the items you collect. Also, surfing eBay or Craigslist is a great way to find collectibles without leaving the house. Half of the fun of collecting isn't buying the items; it's trying to find them. You get to meet a lot of interesting people, and their stories are always so fun to hear. The adventure of collecting draws all kinds of people into the hobby, and the thrill of the hunt is what keeps couples seeking out collectibles on dates.
If you're ready to laugh up a storm, then a comedy show is an excellent idea for any couple seeking some date night fun. A comedy show is the purest form of entertainment since there is nothing in between you and the comic. After the comedy show, talk to your spouse about what jokes they found the funniest. You and your spouse probably have a different sense of humor, and you'll get a feel for that when you hear what jokes your spouse liked the most. Comedy clubs are laid back places where you can let your hair down and enjoy an evening without being too fussy.
Events & Attractions
Comic book lovers are a breed all of their own. Do you and your spouse love putting your nose in a comic book or watching superhero or sci-fi movies? If so, you will love going to a comic convention for a date. You will see people dressed up as your favorite characters, and you'll also get to mingle with those in the industry. Fantasy book and movie creators are seen as celebrities in this world, but they're often still fairly easy to connect with at conventions. Try to take a few selfies during your comic convention date so you can remember it forever.
