10 Creative Date Night Ideas to Spruce Up Your Dating Life

While the pandemic is still ongoing, the outside world is slowly opening its doors again to some form of normality. However, it is ok to not want to go immediately start having date nights in public spaces. After over a year and a half of having at-home date nights, perhaps this is where you are most comfortable. Or are you single and looking to get back into dating? With Luxy you can meet your ideal match online, before venturing out into the real world.

Deciding on what to do on a date night isn’t always an easy task. Juggling responsibilities in your working life may often result in date nights being put on the back burner. Couples will also often spend any spare hour they have trying to plan something creative but will turn to the classic dinner and a movie instead.

Whatever your situation, we have compiled together a list of 10 creative date night ideas, if you are looking to take your dating game to the next level:

1. Set up a romantic picnic.

This could be as simple as setting up a blanket and some food on your living room floor or in your garden or somewhere more adventurous.

2. Cook a Dinner together at Home.

Turn on some mood music and grab a recipe book and cook together. You could also spice it up by getting dressed up in fancy outfits to create that real-world feeling in the comfort of your own home.

3. Takeaway and movie date nights.

Maybe you could even make this a twist on the classic date night idea. Why not pick a movie outside of what you’d usually watch? The options are endless. 

4. Go for a walk.

The next three may sound overly simple, but that’s what a date night should feel like. Going on a long walk (make sure to leave your phone at home!) with your favorite person can be more exciting than it seems.

5. Watch the sunset.

No matter where you live, it is easy to catch a sunset. Check when the sun is due to set and find the best destination to go to.

6. Go Stargazing with your partner.

As adults, we rarely take an extended moment away from the hustle and bustle of the working world to just enjoy the simplicity of life. If you can get to the suburbs or rural areas, take a trip. Grab a blanket and maybe some snacks, and just live in the moment.

7. Go Camping.

If you are going to struggle to find the time, this could be as simple as camping out in your living room or garden.

8. Have a spa day.

This could be at an actual spa. However, you could even recreate that setting at home. It is a great way to be closer together and to indulge in some self-care.

9. Make a bucket list together.

If you are ready to take that next step, it shows your partner that you are expecting a long and happy future with them. It may also even give you more date night ideas.

10. Fill up a jar with different date night ideas.

Write down 50 different date ideas on small pieces of paper (Pinterest is a great source of inspiration for this). Pull out a different one each time and create that date. Not only is this creative, but it’ll also keep your date nights fresh. Why not start with some of the ideas off this list?
