There are several ways you can go house shopping and which you choose depends on how much time and money you have. Cruising around looking for sale signs in front yards is an excellent way of seeing what houses are on the market. You can even go for a walk in your neighborhood and check to see if there are any houses for sale. Setting up a meeting with a realtor is more appropriate if you're more intent on buying a home. Discuss what you like and dislike about the houses to learn what your spouse's dream home is. Remember, this isn't just for serious buyers, this is a fun activity to just dream about your future together.
A trip to the zoo on a gorgeous day outside is a fantastic adventure. If the weather is less than stellar outside, usually the zoo has indoor attractions that you can enjoy. Go from animal to animal and see if you can identify each of them by name. You'll be surprised by several of the animals that you've never seen before. Insects, fish, and reptiles often give people the most difficulty when trying to come up with their names. Take a few pictures of each other with some of your favorite animals to make sure that this zoo's trip is never forgotten. The zoo is a perfect date for the two of your or with your children if you have any.
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.

Going for a quick run is a great exercise, and it's also a fantastic way to spend some time with each other. Before your running date, scout out an area that is safe to run. If you're a regular runner, you won't have a problem finding a place to run. If you're living in a big city, a park is probably your best bet to find a safe running space. Bring along some fruit or water bottles and take a break during your running date to spend a little time with each other. If you're feeling up to it, you can have a little competition to see who can run the furthest without getting winded. Running not only is a fantastic one-time date idea but a healthy lifestyle that will reward you for years if you can turn it into a habit.
A date first thing in the morning starts the day off right. If the two of you are early birds, then you're already awake when the sun comes up. If not, watching the sunrise might be even more special. Go out on the back porch or in the parking lot and watch the sun come up. Climbing a mountain or heading to the beach can make it even more beautiful. The best sunrise date is to eat breakfast in bed before or after the sun rises. One of you can treat the other and cook breakfast and enjoy the meal while lying in bed. Or if you're away from home why not turn it into a picnic? Don't forget to take some beautiful photos while you're at it.
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.
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.
Food & Drink
Do you or your spouse have a sweet tooth? If so, going out for dessert can be a fun addition to any date or might even qualify for a stand-alone date idea. Your date could include going to the dairy aisle, a local bakery or ice cream parlor, or even a fancy restaurant. Sometimes it's fun to buy one dessert and share it. Going out for only dessert can be such a romantic experience. Chocolate desserts set a type of mood between a couple like nothing else can. Sitting there with the person you love while you're enjoying the creamy sweetness of chocolate can only bring you together as a couple.
Fun & Games
Jazz is more than a type of music; it's a way of life. Going to a jazz club is a great way to introduce yourself to a new culture and possibly new music. If the two of you are jazz fans, then this is the perfect date for you. Live music is exciting in itself, and jazz is so unpredictable that you never know what's going to happen from one minute to the next. Listening to jazz is like a blast from the past since many performers stay true to their roots. Enjoy the music while you dine and talk. Dress up to make it even more fun.
At first glance, a date featuring reading doesn't sound all that exciting for some people. If you need to mix it up a little, take turns reading the book out loud and make voices for every character. It doesn't matter if the voices sound silly; that's all a part of the fun. The sillier you sound, the more fun you'll have with each other. The book you choose to read should be something that both of you enjoy. You can set aside an hour every week for your reading date until the book is completed. You'll have so much fun taking turns while reading that you won't be able to wait until your weekly storytime date comes around.
Fun & Games
Crashing a party is as much fun as it sounds. How do you crash a party? There are two ways to crash a party - either attend a party uninvited and try to fly under the radar or attend on that you've been invited to and do something so wild that people will never forget. Let's say that you know someone who is having a birthday party. Maybe you and your spouse dress up as your favorite cartoon characters and surprise everyone at the party. Don't do anything dangerous or illegal of course. The whole point is to surprise the guests so that they never forget the party. Be over the top, loud, or whatever it takes to make sure that you leave a lasting impression on the party's guests.
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.
Arts & Culture
Couples who enjoy going out and listening to instrumental music will love going to the piano bar on date night. Have a drink or two, and enjoy live music being played on a piano. Piano bars are great alternatives for people who like live music but don't like the wild bar scene. Set aside money for a taxi or have a friend pick you up if you plan on drinking. You can play dress up and wear all kinds of fancy clothes. Make it a theme night, and the two of you wear something similar, like beach vacation night or whatever strikes your fancy.
Fun & Games
Yarn bombing is where you take yarn and cover outdoor objects with it in artistic ways. Be creative and search for things that would look so out of place if they were covered in yarn. The more unique the item is, the more fun it is to cover with yarn. If you're really feeling adventurous, you can crochet around the item you're yarn bombing. The fun thing to do here is for both of you to search for things that you can yarn bomb. If you want to go out of your way, yarn bomb a friend who will think it's hilarious to see an item of theirs covered in yarn. The look on their face will be priceless when they see what you've done. Just search online for some inspiration on what you might do.
Food & Drink
Making s'mores is so much fun. Eating the s'mores is a whole different experience. The roasting of the marshmallows is fun in itself. There's something about sticking a marshmallow on a stick and roasting it that is such an enjoyable experience. Conversations have a way of spiraling into something truly magical when you're around the campfire. Don't worry; you can roast marshmallows outside your home over a charcoal grill if needed. You can take your s'mores inside or enjoy them while out in the open fresh air. Anytime is a good time to whip up a batch of s'mores and turn it into a delicious 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.
Health & Wellness
A relaxing soak in the hot tub is what every couple needs sometimes. Stress has a way of building up over time, and often, when it does, couples don't talk. A dip in the hot tub might just be what your body and relationship need. Find some relaxing music on your smartphone and sit close to each other while enjoying the warm water. Allow the mood to carry itself wherever you want it to go. The two of you need some alone time, and there's no better way to enjoy being around each other than to do so in bubbling hot water.
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
Nothing brings out the smiles and giggles during a date quite like bumper cars. Bumping into each other becomes addictive, and it's something that you can't stop doing. Bumper cars are fun because each of you gets to drive your own vehicle. You can chase each other, bump into each other, or even try to race. You can't help but have a great time when you're driving around trying to avoid (or cause!) a collision. Don't be surprised when the two of you want to do it again after the bumper cars come to a stop, and you know your time is up.
Every individual and couple has hopes and dreams. A vision board or dream board enables you to envision your dreams in a way that puts them in pictures. For those who don't know what a dream board is, it's a collage where you put pictures of what you want your life to be like. You can have photos of what you hope your dream job is someday, the home you've always wanted to live in, or anything else you can think of. The focus of a dream board is always on the future. You're trying to represent what you want your future to be like visually. It will be both surprising and helpful to know what your spouse wants the future to be like to help them pursue it.
Everyone reading this has at least one bad habit they should quit. If you and your spouse smoke, then why not set the same quit date? You can smoke your last cigarettes together and turn it into a date. There are other things you can quit, such as sugar, that can have a devastating effect on your health. Even if you don't plan on quitting something like sugar forever, the two of you can still turn it into a date if you plan on stopping consuming it for a month or whatever. Some people like to quit doing something, such as eating junk food for a short period in hopes of improving their health. Turn your health around and have a great date in the process when the two of you start to take things seriously.
Arts & Culture
Allowing your creative side to flourish by doing arts & crafts is a fantastic date idea. Take it one step further by turning your love of arts & crafts into a business. A fun way to kick off your date is by walking through a craft store and seeing what piques your interest. By the time you're ready to leave the store, you'll have a clear idea as to what you want to make when you're at home. Be as zany and creative as you want to be when creating your crafts. It's great to watch your spouse's imagination come alive and explore their inner self. You don't know who you're married to until you see their creativity open like a flower blossoming in the morning.
Events & Attractions
The fair is so much fun, and it's a special thing since it only comes once a year. You can enjoy the animals, rides, and food. You can't go to the fair without stuffing yourself silly full of sweet, salty, and greasy foods. A fun thing to do on your date is to choose what foods or rides you think your spouse will enjoy the most. Don't forget to take a few pictures of yourselves and everything else at the fair, so you have something to remember this awesome date with. Going to the fair has to be a yearly date activity that no couple should miss.
Fun & Games
Eyebombing is where you put googly eyes on objects in public. The goal is to make things look silly, so people get a chuckle. There are a million and one things you can eyebomb, and the hilarity sometimes gets out of hand. Grab yourself a pack of eyes and try to find the silliest places where you think they should go. You'll laugh so hard when you see how people react to the googly eyes. You will have a ton of fun eyebombing, but your date will bring plenty of lighthearted laughs to anyone who catches a glimpse of the eyes. Please remember to eyebomb responsibly.
If you want to play pool, then you've got to be careful where you go. A roughneck bar might not be the ideal place for an evening game of billiards. Pool halls, bowling alleys, and even some restaurants have pool tables. Don't worry if you're any good at playing pool; sometimes it's more fun to play if you're terrible. Do learn the rules of the game though - 8-ball, 9-ball, whatever game interests you. Fire up the jukebox if they have one and just have fun. The two of you will laugh up a storm when one of you misses the cue ball. It's not about who wins the game; it's all about how much fun you have when you play pool.
Style & Fashion
Ladies, get ready for a crazy date if you allow your husband to do your nail art. Why not allow him to pick out the artwork on your fingernails? You don't have to live with it forever, just until you get tired of it. Guys, you probably never thought you'd pick out the art on your wife's nails. Give it a try, and you'll immediately see that it's a blast. Women already know what nail art is all about; it's an undiscovered world to most men. By the time your date is over, the two of you will be laughing up a storm, and you won't believe what just happened.
Fun & Games
Role-playing games enable you to get out of your shell and be someone else. You can discover sides of your spouse you never knew existed during a role-playing date. There are a wide variety of games that you can play, and some of them can even be found on the internet. A date of playing a role-playing game is usually less about the game and more about spending quality time together. Sometimes couples need a little nudge to relax and enjoy a little alone time. If it takes playing a game, then pull out the box or load up the app and have at it. Enjoy some snacks, order a pizza, or slurp down some fizzy sodas while playing a game that should bring you closer together.
Fun & Games
A murder mystery is a real who-done-it. You can watch a murder mystery on TV, read a book, or go on a chilling haunted tour of a crime scene. There are also games you can play and dinner theaters that focus on murder mysteries. How can you have fun while pursuing a murder mystery? The real fun happens when you try to solve the murder together. Put your heads together and ask each other who you think did it. Go back and forth and try your best to come up with different scenarios. It will be interesting to see which one of you is right when you learn who was the person behind the murder.
Those who enjoy the great outdoors will love going out on a date to do a little wildlife spotting. National parks are great places where you can walk around and see all kinds of wild animals. You shouldn't try to spot things such as bears unless you are prepared to defend yourself if one comes a little too close. Bird watching, insect watching, and looking for small animals is always fun. Even a stroll through a national park that doesn't turn up any significant wildlife is still a fantastic date. You get to spend time with each other and hopefully chat it up while walking around.
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.
Romance & Relationship
Playing 21 questions isn't only a fantastic date idea; it's also a great way of getting to know your spouse a little better. It doesn't matter how long you've been married; there's still plenty of stuff for the two of you to learn about each other. You can find the 21 questions to ask by searching for them on the internet. Alternatively, you can also make up your own 21 questions. Why not order a pizza and munch on it while answering the questions? If it's a beautiful day outside, pack a lunch, head to the park, and answer all the questions while taking in some fresh air and sun.
Every person has at least one invention in them that they want to see so desperately. Two brains are better than one, and this is a date idea that any couple can do. Sit down and combine your thinking power and come up with an invention that solves a problem. You can either sketch it out on a piece of paper or head to the computer and use a graphics program to bring your idea to life. Who knows, maybe you can patent your invention and make big bucks off of it.
Arts & Culture
Jewelry making is as much of a skill as it is an art form. It's hard to imagine that it's possible to turn a date into a work of art. You can do just that when you make jewelry. If the two of you are into fashion, then jewelry making is an acceleration of what you already love. Turn your date into profit or show off your hard work when you're out and about. Either way, you'll not only have something you can show from your date, but you'll gain insightful knowledge on how to do something in a highly profitable trade. Making jewelry for each other can be a great way to give each other mementos and fun conversation starters among friends, family and even strangers at the grocery store.
Romance & Relationship
There are two stages to planning a dream date, and the first is to determine what your dream date is, and then the second is to put it into action. Planning your dream date can be a date in itself. Don't hold anything back and plan for the type of date that you'll remember for the rest of your life. After all the planning is over, then enjoy your dream date! A dream date often consists of things that most people do only once in their lifetime. You're splurging on yourselves, and you mustn't cut any corners. Have you always dreamed of going sky diving, eating at a fancy restaurant, or taking a long cruise? If so, a dream date is a perfect opportunity to do any of those things.
Sites & Landmarks
Every city, regardless of how large, has plenty of urban areas to explore. Urban exploration is the term used to describe touring or checking out old man-made structures that are no longer in use. You can seek out old mansions, historical places, underground tunnles or similar places of interest. A fun thing to do is learn what the buildings in your city were used for in the past. For example, an office building today might have been a department store 50 years ago. Research what your city was like way back when and explore what it looks like in the present day. Urban exploration is something that can easily go from one date to many if you're the type of couple who is extra curious and loves history, culture or architecture.
The fun thing about origami is you can create a million different things out of small pieces of paper. Allow your creativity to run wild and see what you come up with. You and your spouse have different interests, and they will come out when you're creating things using paper pieces. If you want to have a total blast, then try to guess what each other is making. Sometimes the most fun is trying to come up with what your spouse is making out of the folded paper. Your creativity often runs wild when you're trying to outdo each other when trying to create the best origami.
Fun & Games
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.
An exciting date idea is to sit down with each other and determine what 30-day challenges you want to try. Some of you might balk at the thought of doing anything difficult for 30 days. You should realize that most people fail to do the challenges completely, but that shouldn't deter you from giving it a shot. They're called challenges because that's exactly what they are. Visit different websites and come up with something that the two of you can do as a challenge. The most exciting thing about doing 30-day challenges with your spouse is to see that you can accomplish difficult things when you work together.
Traditions are such an essential part of who we are. If you have a family, it's always nice to teach your children about your traditions. Why not turn a date night into an evening of learning about your traditions and finding ways to preserve them? The memories that come about from reliving the traditions make the effort all that worthwhile. People from your past will spurt out of nowhere and, along with them, memories that you thought you forgot. Traditions have a way of dying in the modern technical era, but they don't have to. Preserve your past while also protecting your future by setting and doing traditions that have been passed on from generations past.
Fun & Games
Foosball is a fun game to play when you pit your skills against your spouse. Foosball doesn't require a great strategy, though you do need pretty good hand-eye coordination. It's impossible to do anything other than laugh when the two of you are having a ton of fun playing foosball. Before you know it, both of you will be lost in the game, and the time will have flown by. Take your foosball to a whole new level by making a recording of your gameplay. Share your video with others, and don't forget to do a little boasting if you're the lucky person who gets to call themself the winner.
