In many cities, the weekends are hot days for garage sales. You can easily spend an entire Saturday going from garage sale to garage sale, finding all kinds of goodies. Here is a little fun thing you can do to turn going to garage sales into a date. Try to find at least one item that you think the other would like. It doesn't have to cost much; you can set a limit of a couple of dollars on the item. You'll be surprised by the items that your spouse thinks that you will like. Seeing the items your spouse chooses gives insight into what type of person they think you are.
Gardening is an activity both of you can do during a date and enjoy the benefits for months to come. Who doesn't love eating fresh produce straight from the garden? Another great date idea is to preserve your bountiful harvest together by canning and freezing everything after you've picked it. A jar of preserves is a wonderful gift, and the two of you can whip up a batch in your kitchen with the fruits of your labor in the garden. You can turn your backyard into a garden or even a windowsill if you're in an apartment, and outdoor space is at a premium.
There are two ways that you can turn geocaching into a fantastic date. The first would be to do geocaching with another couple, and each couple places items around for the other to find. If you don't know anyone who is into geocaching, then each spouse can place objects and have the other look for it. Geocaching is kind of like a high-tech version of hide and seek or a scavenger hunt. It's exciting trying to find the items, and you will enjoy being outside. The real fun part is when both of you have difficulty finding something, and you know it's right underneath your nose. You may be surprised to learn that geocaching is very popular with a large community backing. Check out sites like geocaching.com

You don't need a reason for a gift exchange other than to express your love for one another. A gift exchange can be a date in itself, or you can add it to another date idea to have the ultimate experience. Set a limit on how much money you want to spend on the gift. If you really want to go all out, then have a themed gift exchange. For example, if you're both Harry Potter fans, buy each other something that only a true-blue fan would know about. The purpose of a gift exchange isn't to have high expectations about what your husband or wife will buy you, but to enjoy giving each other something even if there's no particular occasion.
Glamping is a more glamourous version of camping. You don't have to rough it or anything like that when going glamping. With camping you are stuck with cooking, sleeping and going to the bathroom outdoors. With glamping you get to enjoy both the benefits of indoor facilities and the beauty of nature at the same time. With glamping you don't live in a little tent and have to forage for your food like you would under normal camping conditions. Glamping usually requires more than a few hours, and it's best suited for a weekend date getaway where you spend time with each other and forget all about the distractions that usually drive couples apart.
Fun & Games
Unleash your competitive side by going go-kart racing. Many of the places that have go-kart racing also have restaurants and video games. Why not turn your go-kart racing adventure into a day-long date? Eat pizza, race cars, and play a few games afterward. It's so much fun to drive side by side in the go-karts. You'll have a blast when one passes the other in their kart. Don't be surprised if you want to keep the fun going and race several times in a row. It's next to impossible to stop racing once you get it into your system.
You've got to set goals for you to grow as a couple. The goals you set should be in tandem with each other. It would be foolish for each person to set their own goals without consulting the other first. Your spouse can be your best motivation in achieving your goals. Discussing the goals that you have are a crucial first step in getting them done. Go for a walk, sit at a restaurant, have a picnic, and discuss and write down what you hope the future looks like. After you both agree on where you want to go, then make a game plan to put all of your goals into action.
Every household needs to go shopping. A shopping date can be to buy groceries, things for your home, or just to blow some money on yourselves. Shopping together is one of those things that couples do to learn about themselves. If you live busy lives, sometimes it's nice to do things such as shopping to connect. If you have a hard time finding the time for date nights, doing the things you have to do already can be an easy fix. Don't be in a hurry while shopping and take a look at all the things in the store that interest you. Sometimes setting a budget on how much you can spend can make the date so much more fun since it makes you look at the products and prices. If you really want to have a wild shopping date, allow each person to buy the other something. You really get to know how your spouse perceives you when you ask them to buy you something while shopping.
Panning for gold probably won't bring in tons of money, but you'll get to enjoy a new activity. You can go to a local stream and pan for gold, and it doesn't cost anything. There are places where you pay, and they allow you to pan their streams for gold. You might see a speck of gold here and there, and that's what makes it so much fun. It's like hunting for a needle in a haystack, and seeing your spouse's face light up when they find gold is priceless. You'll feel like someone who headed out west in hopes of finding prosperity when you're sloshing the water and sediment around the pan, searching for any specks that sparkle in the light.
Hitting the links on a bright, beautiful sunny day is an excellent getaway for those who want some alone time. You can either go on the range and hit some balls or play as many holes as possible. There are so many opportunities for couples to talk while they're playing golf. The game itself often is the backdrop for the conversation that takes place. As you go from hole to hole, the conversation has a way of flowing. As a well-established couple, good communication can sometimes be difficult, and hitting the golf course is an excellent excuse to spawn some great conversations.
There's something so undeniably romantic about going on a gondola ride. It's like a blast from the past as the person guides you through the canal. It will take but a mere matter of moments before you're able to comprehend what's going on fully. After you get adjusted, that's when the sparks begin to fly. Romance will be in the air, and you'll hold hands for the entire evening after you get off the gondola. The perfect way to end a gondola date is by going to an Italian restaurant or anywhere where the two can eat a quiet meal while being left alone.
Causes & Service
Doing something good for someone else is always a great way to spend your time. Why not turn doing good deeds for others into your next date? What kind of good deeds can you do? You can take an elderly person's dog for a walk. Why not go to the store and buy groceries for someone who is disabled? Sometimes the best thing you can do for others is to spend some time with them. You and your spouse could sit on the porch and talk to someone who never gets any visitors. Look for opportunities where you can pay it forward and do good deeds for others and turn them into dates that will be enjoyable for both of you and the person on the receiving end.
