Creative Date Ideas
Tired of the typical dinner and a movie date. Surprise the significant other in your life by showing him/her that you are able to be romantic and inventive! Being creative will impress him/her and show him/her that you care. You can use one date idea or combine a bunch of them together to make the date your own.
Go fly a kite! Take the typical day outside a step further by grabbing a kite at one of the local gift shops.
Make a wish: Find a fountain and throw in 10 pennies, taking turns making wishes.
Sweet Surprise: Stop at a fancy bakery and pick out a treat each – for each other.
Pretend You’re Tourists: Visit the local hot spots that the tourists in your area come to visit. Take a camera, have fun, and be silly.
Multiple Dining: Keep your meal on the move! Go to one place for an appetizer, another for dinner, and finish at a quaint ice cream parlor for dessert. It can be as inexpensive as you choose.
The Classic Picnic: Pack a lunch and head outdoors. Enjoy nature by bringing some extra bread to feed the birds!
Change up the Movie Date: Not only are drive-ins cheaper they offer a nostalgic alternative to the typical dinner and a movie date.
Go Out for Pizza: But spice it up! Ask the pizza place in advance to cut the pizza in the shape of a heart. Tell them when you plan on being in so everything can be ready when you arrive.
Be Artistic: Go to a “Paint Your Own Pottery” shop and paint something for each other.
Be a Kid: Go to the Zoo but check out the kids section. They usually have a petting zoo with all kinds of cute fuzzy animals.
Too Cold for the Outdoors? Bring the picnic to your room. Make him/her think you’re going to take him/her on an outdoor picnic but instead stop off at blockbuster, have him/her pick out the movie, and drive back to the hall. Have basket set up and surprise him/her when you get back.
