7 DATE NIGHT/DAY IDEAS
Hello Hi everyone!!!
So, we in the Southern Hemisphere of the world are now getting into SPRING!!! Yay,! Warmer weather, the re-introduction of short skirts and short shorts, LOL! It also means LOTS and LOTS of going out, date night and date days with your significant other, and enjoying life a little bit more outdoors!!! No more being couped up in the house with blankets, cuddling up for a movie, its FAR too hot for that now, you feel me?!
This blog post I thought would be a great idea for couples who often run out of things to do, or don’t know what to do when they want to spend some time together. this is for all those long term “been with my man/woman for YEARS now” kinda couples!!!! I know sometimes things get redundant and we run out of things to do! So this post is for those moments! (Something to look back to!!). I picked seven because it is my lucky number! So, lets go!!!
DATE NIGHT/DAY IDEAS
1. BYO DATES…
This one is one that everyone will love!! What don’t we love more than spending time with the one you love, with minimal effort and preparation?? I know I love these kinds of dates, and went on one recently. These are called “Bring Your Own” dates… these include, picnics, strolls in the park etc. This is a date where you and your partner decide on who brings what, and you spend the day munching on good treats and indulging in fine wine (lol, or whatever else works for you!). These dates are great because they require minimal effort, you can get what fits your budget so you are not spending an arm and a leg, and you can spend a few hours of quiet time with your person, while you talk, people watch and eat and drink and simply- BE MERRY!! In JHB this includes the johannesburg Botanical gardens and the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens. There’s many others! Just GOOGLE! ❤ 🙂
2. BE A TOURIST IN YOUR OWN CITY
This is something that many of us neglect to do, and it is SUCH a great idea! Have a day where you decide to visit museums, historical monuments, or even, see that highlights of what your city has to offer! In JHB there is Apartheid Museum, Neighbourgoods Market, Fourwarys Farmers Market, Maropeng Historical Site, and MANY MANY others!! Or even better, get into town!!! Find out what spots are POPPIN in your town, and take a car one morning drive into town, park the car and just WALK around! Be a tourist! You will be amazed at what you will find!
3. Wine Tasting
Wine tasting is another GREAT alternative for wine lovers!! Nothing beats having a great date with lunch over some nice, cultured and rooted wine!
Now this is a fun idea!! For when you want to just de-stress and have a rather light, and playful date night! Bowling is a great way to get in some laughs, bonding time over something fun and hilarious to do! ANDDDDD… It’s soft on the pocket too! Cost effective!! STRIKEEEEEE!
5. Trivia Night/ Game Night
What more can bring out the child in you like playing games!!! Yes, this is another GREAT idea for a date night! Invest in board games! Like Monopoly, Pictionary, 30 seconds (my personal fave), get some wine and take out, and get ready for lots and lots of laughs!!! If you want to be a bit more Brazen, try your hand at Playstation with him!! Lots of fun!!!
6. COFFEE/TEA WALK!!
Now, this is a little bit of a break from the conventional coffee date. This is more like a stroll. So instead of sitting down for coffee/tea, why not by it, and then take a walk and talk while you walk. Gives you time to take in all thats around you, while taking a walk with your loved one… AND getting in some exercise too!
7. COOKING CLASS
Now, this is one that gets done A LOT nowadays! Are you hopeless in the kitchen? and your man is too? This is a good idea to teach yourself a few tricks of the trade when it comes to making him a good and delicious meal at home!! A great bonding exercise too!!! ❤
That’s all for all the ideas I have for date night! Have you done something with your partner you’d love to share? Let us know so we can all try!
Until the next one!
Live in Light and Love ❤
