So the eternal challenge in any relationship is trying to come up with date ideas that are new and innovative. Here are a bunch of ideas after we threw a bunch at the wall and this is what stuck.
Create a treasure hunt
Everyone loves a treasure hunt. You can hide gifts, candy, leggo, anything you can think of really. Keep it fun and light hearted, and this can last all evening.
Build a blanket fort
Blanket forts are perfect places to hide from the big world, and defend your territory from attack.
Head to the beach
Sand, sea, surf, and sun… also you’re both almost naked!
Go grocery shopping together
Pushing past aggressive shoppers for the last crown of broccoli alone is miserable, but with a special someone? It’s a sexy team sport.
Plan a fake vacation together
This will give you an insight into each others styles and dreams. Remember that game you played as a kid where you’d spin a globe, see where your finger landed, and pretend you were flying out immediately? Do that but with the benefit of the internet.
Play hide n’ seek
Possibly the world’s flirtiest game.
Play “Never Have I Ever”
In terms of getting to know someone, nothing else comes close.
Find a photo booth
Seriously, you need instructions? Go!
Go through old photos of each other. Try to pick the other out of their grade three class photos. Really helps you get back into a child like mindset.
Fly a kite
You get to feel like a kid again… oh wait, isn’t that the entire idea?
Go to an aquarium
Look daddy… FISHIES!!!!
Go to a zoo
Ditto aquarium… but less fishy.
Go to a library together
Story time with daddy, but don’t be too loud…
Go to a psychic together
Let a professional consult the mystic powers and check your relationship for cosmic alignment.
Go shopping together
Set a budget and style each other. This could get interesting.
Wear protective gear kids.
Go berry picking
Grab a basket, and in your cutest voice ask if your significant other wants to pick berries with you.
Go to an improv show
Even if it’s horrible you’re bound to have a great time.
Go to a trivia night
Well – it would seem, Daddy doesn’t know EVERYTHING!!!
Go on a scavenger hunt
Just like a treasure hunt, but in the big wide world! Set ground rules and give each other clues… on your marks – go!
Go for a hike
Out in nature, things with a special somebody can get intimate quickly.
Go on a picnic
Romantic and fun. You can pack your favourite snacks and a blankie.
Cuddling under he stars is so romantic. Even if you get rained out, you need to get those wet clothes off!
Do a home movie marathon
Set a theme – kids movie, romantic comedy… so many options.
Go hard at coloring, or make a competition out of it. Does daddy have any skills?
This can be done with just two of you, or you could host a party and break out the board games.
Go to an art gallery
Many galleries have free entry and you can see how your skills stack up to the professionals.
Check out adoptable pets online
You know, for someday… Daddy Pweeease!!!!
De-clutter your lives together
Going through old stuff, and finding out what weird things your significant other can’t do without.
Go on a museum date
Lots of stuff to stare at and new things to learn. Endless fun.
Take a long walk together
No destination needed cos you have each other… Awwww
Go to the park
Sit on a bench, lie in the grass, play on the swings… what’s not to like?
Go to a water park
Near naked fun with waterslides!
Take a dance class
Get close and personal with your partner and boogie on down.
Watch the sunrise/sunset
Romance at its finest
Go to a bookshop
I can’t believe you haven’t read that?
Go to a music store
I can’t believe you haven’t heard that?
Messy fun – and there’s cookies.
Blissful peace and quiet in nature, but paddle carefully or you may tip out.
A favourite pass time of so many, even if you don’t like it there’s always beer nearby.
If this ends up well everyone falls down.
Drive in cinema
Just like a regular movie, except you can make out easier.
Play laser tag
Such a kid thing to do, and you get to shoot things.
Build a bear
Not only do you end up with a stuffie at the end, but you have the enjoyment of making it together so it’s extra special.
