Long nights, warm days and plenty of outdoor activities call for some of the best date ideas. Whether you have a new or old love, a spark or an undying connection, these summer date ideas can add a new and exciting flare to your relationship.
If you need recommendations for places to go on a date, or just some fun date ideas, then check out all the ways you can swoop your honey off their feet. And, never forget that love can be wildly shown in even the smallest of gestures!
- Sunset Picnic
This simple idea can create the perfect date. Pack a simple, yet delicious snack and a bottle of wine. Then choose one of the best view points in your town and enjoy each other’s company while you share the last moments of the sun’s daily performance. Want to kick this one up a notch? Bring blankets, chairs if you prefer not to sit on the ground, candles and flowers for decoration!
- At Home Spa Day
This among the best of at home date ideas. Shower your partner in self care with an at home spa day that will leave both of you feeling rejuvenated. To make the date extra special, create some cucumber and lemon infused spa water, light some candles, play soft music and light incense.
You can draw a bath, make your own bath bombs and hang lavender for added ambience. You can also administer an essential oil infused massage, enjoy a cleansing clay face mask and whatever other self-care activities you both enjoy! Don’t be scared to think outside the box!
- Outdoor Movie Theater
This one is for the creatives and the doers! This fun date idea requires a little bit of work, but with a huge reward!
String a white sheet against a wall in your backyard and purchase a movie theater projector that can connect to your laptop. It’s cheaper than it sounds (hello, Amazon)! With the right equipment, you can stream your favorite movie on the “big screen.” To create a beautiful ambience, gather some blankets and cushions for comfort, bring some snacks and drinks, light some candles and incense, and cuddle up next to your partner for a sweet summer date!
- Go on a Hike
For those who love the outdoors, there’s nothing better than enjoying the beauty of nature with a special someone. Plus, this is the best among second date ideas! Maybe you’ve already had your first date and want to heat things up a little bit. Well, there’s no better way to get to know someone than by trekking through nature for a few hours together! Just make sure your date likes hiking, and then pick the most beautiful trail in your area. Don’t forget to bring plenty of water and snacks!
- Take an Art Class
With wine and paint nights being all the rage, you can easily take your date out on a fun night of creativity and creation. Check out the events in your area and attend a wine and paint art class. These classes are so popular these days, there’s bound to be one in your area. If this phenomenon hasn’t hit your town yet, then do it at home! Buy some canvases, a variety of paints, brushes and a bottle of wine. Simply follow a tutorial at home (Bob Ross is highly recommended) and enjoy a carefree night of laughs together!
