Sometimes, date nights can feel a little bit too same-same. You’re doing the same activities, probably around the same times, just on different nights. But worry not, because there is more to do for date night with your partner than just going out to a restaurant.
Read through these seven fun date night ideas before booking that dinner reservation for two.
After a long day’s or week’s work, why not treat you and your partner to a massage? A couples massage is a great way to bond letting all your stresses melt away. Many spas offer discounts to couples who are seeking massages together. That’s just another reason why choosing a massage over a movie is a good idea.
Couples massages are typically between 60 to 90 minutes and start at the same time. You and your partner can request to be in the same room during your massage. When booking a couple’s massage, it’s also a good idea to make a note of what kind of massage you and your partner want. Spa packages for couples usually come with options for each, so you can customize your experience.
Having become popular in recent years, escape rooms can experiences designed to showcase your ability to work together and solve problems quickly. They rely on the ability of all those in the place to think on their feet fast and use each other’s strengths to gather clues as to how to escape the room. Doing one as a couple can help each of you learn each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and how to better complement one another.
Most escape rooms last no longer than an hour, whether or not you can successfully get out on your own accord. More complex scenarios might have longer solving times, but it’s always best to start off small, then work your way up. Try an hour-long challenge, then if you like that, feel free to try a 90-minute escape room.
Doing an artistic activity with your loved one can make for an exciting evening. Some studios have painting, pottery, and the like-minded events that make a night out of art making with other couples in tow. Many of these events also serve wines and beers to help get those creative juices flowing. Before booking your evening of creativity, double check to make sure you don’t need to bring your supplies. And if you do, be sure to buy your supplies beforehand.
Many of the studios that offer such experiences sell packages geared toward each event activity. In fact, some often offer discounts to couples.

While it may seem like something of a cliche when was the last time you went mini golfing for a date night? For some, it could be years.
Putting around your local mini golf course is a great way to do date night differently. Also, you’ll burn fat more calories be sitting around a mini golf course than you would sitting down to watch a movie. In fact, the average person burns about 135 calories an hour while mini golfing. You’d only expend about 70 calories during that same time watching a movie.
Mini golf also offers up its fair share of childhood nostalgia. Playing a round of putt-putt is the perfect time to learn more about each other’s childhoods. And who doesn’t like a bit of competition from time to time?Put down the remote, and pick up a putter for your next week or weekend night date.
How can you make your date night beneficial to your community? Easy: spend a night, or even morning or afternoon, volunteering together for a local cause. Not only will you be spending time together under a common cause, but you’ll be bettering your community to boot.
Finding a place to volunteer is easier than you think. From your local animal shelters to food pantries, odds are some community organization a few miles from your residence could use a helping hand. For evening volunteering, your local soup kitchens will likely need help stocking the shelves of serving food to those less fortunate.
In the age of Instagram and food competition-reality TV, cooking is again becoming a favorite pastime. However, it can be hard to piece together those delicious meals. Why not spend a date night learning how to create those more complex dishes?
Kill two birds, and attend a cooking class for your next date night. Through the night, you’ll learn how to make the elegant dishes you see on cable shows, and get fed throughout the night. Also, these cooking classes take place in groups. You could potentially meet other couples for future double dates. Some courses may offer wine and drinks alongside the food making.
Want to bring your vino or brew? Ask beforehand if the class has a BYOB policy.
Most classes will run anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. If you’re drinking during the course, it’s best to take rideshare to the event or designate a driver before heading out.
Next time you’re about to embark on a date night, always remember to try to do something that fuels both your fires. Try encouraging those flames by doing some of the ideas we’ve previously mentioned.
