Face painting is a lot of fun if you're at a park or an event where someone is offering to do it. However, the real fun is when you paint each other's faces. You can order face paint online, or it can be bought from any costume shop. Imagine the laughs when you see how your spouse painted your face. Will you be able to go outside without bursting out laughing? An artistic touch isn't needed since sometimes the funniest designs are made by those who have no creativity whatsoever.
Your family history is far more interesting than what you believe. Your local library might have a genealogy department where you and your spouse can research your family. If not, then turn to the internet. Who knows, you might find out that there's someone famous in your family. The further you go back, the more opportunity you have to find someone interesting. Take turns researching the other's family and see what pops up. If you locate some relatives that you don't know that live near you, maybe visit them. It would be interesting to meet people in your family that you never knew existed. Or try interviewing the oldest members in your family and learn about their lives and see how they relate (or don't relate) to your own.
Are you and your spouse a fan of a particular sport? If so, fantasy sports are a way to have a little fun and enjoy the sport you can't get enough of. What you do is you each create a fantasy team and pit them against each other. You see which players perform the best every week and then tally up your scores at the end of the season. Fantasy sports are available for most major sports like football, baseball, basketball and even auto racing. The two of you may be die-hard sports fans, but you'll choose different players to make up your team. The players each of you chooses show how your interest in the game is different. You'll be surprised by what the other picks up on the game and the players they've been keeping an eye on.
Food & Drink
Going to the farmers market is one of the best ways to eat healthy while maintaining a budget. Also, shopping at a farmers market helps support local farmers who are always in need of more customers. A fun thing to do is to walk through the farmer's market and try to spot things that the other doesn't. You can also try to find one thing that neither of you has ever tried before. Buy the items and try it either on the spot or take it home if it needs to be cooked, peeled or prepared. You can spend several hours at the farmers market, and it's a great place to connect with the people who produce the food you eat. Being as close to farm to table as possible is a great thing, and your farmers market date will enable you to do just that.
A fashion show is a collision of modern expression and art in a way that's easily presentable to the public. Ask your spouse which outfits they liked the best and why. Also, ask them what they think are the worst outfits. It'll be fun to see if the two of you like the same outfits or something entirely different. Fashion shows often have food and other attractions that you can enjoy as well. Who knows, the two of you may end up meeting a famous model, and if so, you'll always have that to remember your fashion show date with. For a sexy variation on this theme, put on your own fashion show for each other. Dress up however you'd like and strut your own stuff down the runway at home.
If you have old bread lying around a trip to the park to feed the ducks is an awesome date idea. The ducks will be so happy to see you and your bread. Each of you can feed the ducks, and it will be fun to watch how the other reacts. Taking pictures or making videos of your duck feeding date is also a lot of fun since you can share them with friends and family. If there are no ducks nearby you can probably find some pigeons or wild birds who would be just as happy to help you have a fun date. Sometimes a relaxing date like feeding the ducks at the park is the perfect way for two people to get out of the house and enjoy some quality time together.
If there's one thing that's for sure about fencing, it's that you need someone else to do it with. You can't do fencing by yourself, fencing is made for two, and that's what makes it the perfect date idea. If you're new to fencing, don't worry, it's a total blast. It looks hard, but once you get the hang of it, it's actually quite easy. Remember, you've got on all kinds of protective gear that will make sure you don't get hurt. Fencing is a great exercise, and it also improves your agility and hand-eye coordination. Try to record your fencing date to make sure you can watch it later on and show your grandkids. No one will ever believe that the two of you were into fencing if they don't see it with their own eyes.
Feng shui is all about decorating your home so that the energy flows. If you're into feng shui, you already know what it is. A feng shui date idea will help you transform the energy in your home and, in turn, your life. Feng shui has a way of being the focal point of a person's life, even if they don't intend on it. If you've never been involved with feng shui, give it a try and see how it will change things. You may end up spending several hours working on the feng shui in your home over the next few months to ensure that the energy there is exactly what you want it to be.
Fun & Games
A peck on the cheek is so much more fun when you're at the top of a Ferris wheel. Some big cities have enclosed Ferris wheels that operate all year long. Each person sits in the Ferris wheel in a glass-enclosed case, and it goes around slowly. The best moment is when you're at the top and looking into the eyes of your spouse. Dates like these are so precious because they're simple, but create the kind of memories that last a lifetime. Take a selfie while the two of you are kissing at the top so you can savor the memory for years to come.
You can turn a field hockey date into a one-on-one match or you can invite other couples to have fun along with you. If you're not familiar with field hockey, it's like ice hockey but not played on ice. You can play field hockey anywhere as long as you have a ball and sticks. Your back yard, a parking lot, or the park are all places where you can play field hockey. Make sure to have plenty of refreshments on hand during your field hockey date because all of that exercise will make you thirsty. Field hockey is great exercise, and it's a total blast when you're playing it against your spouse on a date.
If you and your spouse are movie buffs, then a film festival is right up your alley. By attending a film festival, you'll get to watch many different movies. Quite a few of those movies may never see the light of day outside of the festival. Film festivals are also places where movie producers and fans get to meet each other. Don't be surprised if you end up rubbing shoulders with legendary producers and actors who you've admired your whole life. Sometimes the smaller festivals are the best because they get less attention and that means you'll have more access to celebrities.
Financial planning is something people rarely like to do because it's not exciting. However, every couple needs to sit down and think about where their money is going. What is your financial future, and where do you want to be in the next five years? The only way you know the answer to these questions is by sitting down and planning for your financial future. Therefore a financial planning date is a must, and there are so many ways you can spruce it up so it's not entirely dull. Turn your date into an enjoyable experience by making sure you have plenty of snacks or maybe even taking a break in between discussing your financial future to enjoy a great meal. You have to get through this, and the more serious you take it now, the fewer worries you'll have down the line.
A fire pit is difficult to make, but it's possible to build one during a date. Or you can opt to buy a firepit to place in your backyard to use over and over. The real fun of a fire pit is sitting around it together. Watching the fire dance as you two are nestled close to each other is as relaxing as it is romantic. Roasting marshmallows or weenies is also a lot of fun when the two of you are sitting around the fire pit. The warmth of the fire and the smell of the smoke creates a mood that connects to the very spirit of humankind. Sitting at the fire pit is even more enjoyable during nighttime when the fire lifts the cover of darkness.
Fun & Games
The fourth of July or any other event with fireworks makes for a great date night. If you're lucky, you might be able to watch the fireworks from your home. If not, then bring a blanket, something soft to sit on, and maybe a snack. Sometimes there are food vendors near fireworks shows that sell tasty treats. Turn your fireworks date night into something spectacular by getting some food to munch on while watching the colors burst into the sky. Try to find out the exact time of the show, so you don't miss out on any of the action. If fireworks are legal in your area even better - shooting fireworks off yourself can be tons of fun on date night.
Health & Wellness
Being educated about first aid is something that comes in handy when you need it the most. You can learn a lot at events held by the Red Cross and other organizations. You can also turn to YouTube to learn how to administer a variety of first aid techniques. If you don't have a first aid kit in your home, go buy one or put one together. Everyone should know what to do in case of an emergency. A date learning the basics of first aid will give you the upper hand during an emergency or natural disaster. The first few minutes of a tragedy are when you prevent permanent injury or loss of a loved one. Knowing first aid cuts down on the likelihood of something terrible happening.
Fishing is a fun way to enjoy the great outdoors and to get some tasty food for free. Fishing itself is fun, and it gives you a chance to sit down next to each other and be a couple. Also, if you're the type who likes to catch what they cook, you can have a feast near the water. Remember, it's called fishing and not catching, so you might not have anything to eat on your date. The point of fishing isn't always to catch fish, but to spend time with the person you love. These precious moments are what your bond is built upon, and they are needed for a strong, lasting relationship. There aren't many things that can get you to forget about the hustle and bustle of your life like fishing. It's a great way to relax with the one you love.
A fitness challenge is a great date idea that can eventually lead to so much more. You start with one date focused on fitness, and then it snowballs into a life of its own. The health of a couple is vital since, as time goes on, how in shape and healthy you are will determine the quality of your life. If you have a family, then you must be in tip-top shape to take care of everyone. A fitness challenge reminds both the husband and wife that their health is essential for their family's longevity. Fitness challenges are a great way to motivate a healthy lifestyle and what better cheerleader and coach than your own spouse.
Classes & Workshops
You can't be a happy couple if both of you aren't healthy. The first step to becoming healthy is by being active and exercising. Going to fitness classes on your date nights is a great idea since they will help you get fit. You'll also remember the exercises they teach you, and you'll be able to do them at home. If you have fitness classes once or twice a week, you can have exercise dates at home for the rest of the week. Just a handful of fitness class sessions paired with other healthy life choices can spur into something so much bigger in a short period.
Flea markets are where you can get deals and also find items that are impossible to buy elsewhere. An entire day can be turned into a flea market date without much effort at all. The most fun you'll ever have is to go into the flea market with a small budget and try to buy as many interesting items as possible. Another part of the fun is negotiating prices with the sellers at the flea market. The sellers are used to haggling, and many of them think it is a sport. You and your spouse can try your best to haggle different sellers and see who can get the biggest discounts.
Food & Drink
Fondue is the perfect treat for cold weather or any time when you want to have a date night inside with the person you love. You can do chocolate or cheese fondue and dip all kinds of stuff in it. You can dip fruit, bread, or anything you can imagine. The magic of a fondue pot is that you get to enjoy creamy deliciousness at home. Turn your date night into a memorable experience by putting the fondue pot on the floor and feed each other delicious treats from it.
