Getting a bit stuck when it comes to date ideas? New love on the scene? Or wanting to switch things up from your usual go-to with your partner? Perhaps it is a first date that you are planning?
We have created a list of 10 memorable date ideas that should help you with your date decision.
10. MORNING SUNRISE WALK
Plan a morning walk - If you are by the coastline, a morning coastal walk is always a definite go-to, if you are not by the coastline your local park or bush trail is equally as special. Waking up this early will mean minimal people will be around so you can really embrace the experience together.
Plan & go on a romantic picnic together. Pick a spot you can both unwind & be completely in the moment with each other & your surroundings.
Local park, national park, coastline, beach, rooftop. You don't have to be a crazy perfectionist with your food prep, you can just pick a few of your favourite foods or antipasto favourites, add in some wine in a cooler bag & a chill playlist, you are all sorted!.
If you really dislike the idea of putting the picnic together why don't you see if your city has a pop-up picnic business like: Pop Up Picnics in Sydney. - Umm yes please..
8. WINE TASTING
One thing better than a bottle of gorgeous wine... sharing that bottle of wine with someone special. Wine tasting is romantic & can be incredibly fun. Why not organise a day trip or tour to your local wine region & bring a few of your faves to finish off back at home. What's even better is you don't have to be an expert to go to a wine tasting, treat it as an educational experience too..
7. TRY A DRINKING PAINTING CLASS
Channel your inner Picasso with a painting class, most cities have byo boozy painting classes. What is even better is majority of them also include a step by step "Paint your Mate" option. We love the "Paint Your Mate Picasso Style" by Sydney's Cork & Canvas. What could be more fun than a paint brush in one hand, a drink in the other & a few laughs no doubt. If you feel somewhat pressure in painting that someone special you can always opt for other designs. Have a google at what your local city provides.
6. COCKTAIL MASTERCLASS
Why not step your dinner & drinks date up a notch and book yourselves in to a cocktail mixology tasting for a pre or post dinner delight. Some of the best memories are followed after a drink or two.. Most cities worldwide would have some gorgeous cocktail bars offering this service. We are loving Eau de Vie for a Sydney option.
5. PUTT PUTT
Who doesn't love mini golf right? If you are quite competitive now is the time to show your partner what you are made of.. Also a great ice-breaker if you are newly dating. Drinking on the job may or may not help with your aim. There is only one way to find out right? Our Sydney choice is Holey Moley which has 18 themed holes and a bar for drinks. If mini golf isn't your thing you can always opt for bowling or some fun at the game arcades.
4. POTTERY DATE
Why not give it a spin... Most pottery workshops are beginner friendly, fun for those who may want to awaken their creative sides. A cute date idea, maybe you can gift each other your masterpiece? We are vibing Sydney's - Bondi Clay "Date Night" class. Where they turn down the lights & turn up the music every Friday night for a 2 hour class.
3. VISIT A BATHHOUSE
Take some time out to really unwind together, with ultimate relaxation. Why not visit your local a bath house? We absolutely love the Japanese Bath House in Sydney's Blue Mountains. If you don't have a bath house nearby why don't you treat yourselves to at at home experience with candles, massage oil & a sensual music playlist?
2. BOOK A QUIRKY ROMANTIC HOTEL ROOM FOR THE NIGHT
Why not book a quirky hotel room for the night.. A sexy playlist, some chocolate strawberries, champagne, candles & sexy lingerie of course ;) We will let you improv the rest..
Our Sydney pick would be the ever so sexy QT hotel, it screams the perfect date night. Add bubble bath to that list as their bathrooms are ever so romantic.
1. CREATE YOUR OWN SCAVENGER HUNT
Why not come up with the ultimate date day/night scavenger hunt filled with clues and riddles with a romantic & personalised twist to it. To plan a smooth scavenger hunt work from the end to the beginning. Think big! Make a day of it...
