The Top 10 Effortless And Creative Date Night Ideas

Are you looking for a list of date night ideas? In long-term partnerships, we often settle into routine and forget the excitement of a new relationship. Here are 10 ways that can help reignite the romance and fall in love all over again.

#10 – Date again

Remember all the way back when you met your partner? Do you remember the excitement and nerves of meeting for drinks in the city, picnicking under park trees, or enjoying a night of dining? Why not bring that feeling back by picking a time once a week or fortnight to dedicate to date night.

Each of you taking turns to think of something fun to do. Get creative. It doesn’t need to be break the bank, but it should be something new every date. Best not to just make a standing reservation at your favourite restaurant. The idea is to break the cycle of predictability. Sites and apps like Groupon offer vouchers for dinner, classes, night cruises, and massages. Research the local dating hot spots in your local area.

#9 – Switch off

The best way to connect is to disconnect. Order takeout, open a bottle of wine, and turn off or silence all smart devices and the TV. Invest in a few new board or card games, or dust off the old ones that have been shoved in the back of the cupboard since the beginning of time. Eat, drink and laugh the night away.

#8 – Think it and ink it

Spend a week writing appreciation and love notes to each other. Every time you think about your significant other or remember something that they do for you that you are grateful for, write it down. Put it on post its and pop them where your partner will find them, write it in a little notebook and hand it to them at the end of the week, send it in a text message, what ever works for you.

#7 – Dress to impress

It’s time to dig out the sexy underwear, or even better, time to invest in some new gear. Never underestimate how much the way you feel about yourself and the way you look, can effect your relationship. So take the time to step out of those granny panties and those threadbare jocks and give yourself a lift by slipping in to something sexy and new.

#6 – Where did that come from?

Get thinking about what your partner’s favourite things are. They may not be raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens, but having their favourite meal ready when they get home, or turn on that movie that they want to watch but you don’t, or bring home something that you bought for them because it reminded you of how awesome they are, all these ideas work just fine. It doesn’t have to be grand, just thoughtful.

#5 – Get deliciously messy

There is much to be said about how in tune you need to be with another person to be able to work in a confined space full of sharp objects and hot surfaces. Trust me, I’m a chef. The more you take the time to cook together, the easier you may find working together on other parts of your relationship.

#4 – New play toys!

Take a trip to your local Oh! Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres and explore the world of couple’s sex toys, personal massagers, love swings, handcuffs and all of the other new and exciting things that we stock. Chat with our consultants who will help guide you to some new pieces that will help spice up playtime.

#3 – I’ve got a secret

Everyone loves a secret! Challenge yourself and your partner to write down 3 secret desires that they have. Then spend a date night opening and discussing them. Be brave, be bold and be honest. You never know what may transpire.

#2 – Where did the weekend go?

Get away from the usual weekend drudgery of washing, ironing, mowing the lawn and scrolling through Facebook until your eyes bleed and your brain leaks from your ears. Drive to a vineyard and stay overnight, book in for a wine tasting, have an amazing dinner, just relax. Join an overnight tour somewhere, do something that you love doing.

#1 – Take a holiday. Travel, eat, drink and be merry

Who doesn’t want a holiday? If you can, take some time out and go on that tour of the US, or jump on that South Pacific cruise, or hire a fancy car and drive down the Great Ocean Road, or rent an AirBnB in the Huon Valley in winter and watch the snow fall outside.Invest in new board or card games, or dust off old ones from the back of the cupboard. Unplug from work and the rest of the busy world and spend time exploring and getting reacquainted with each other.
