To help you out, we’ve put together some top date ideas that are sure to impress – and they don’t need to cost the earth either.
A champagne picnic in the park
This may seem like a simple one, but it can provide a really beautiful date night that shows you’ve put real thought and effort into it. Make up a basket of your date’s favorite food (or get a selection if you’re not sure what they like), bring a blanket and some electric lanterns, and set up in a nearby beauty spot. From here you can crack open the bubbles and enjoy stunning views and spend time with each other without any interruptions, it’s a truly romantic way to spend an evening – and isn’t too expensive.
Cocktail making is an immersive and fun thing to do together that’s guaranteed to get some laughs as well as help you discover your favorite drink recipes. There are many places that offer cocktail making, from hip bars to more boujee spots, so do your research and think about the sort of vibe you want to go for before you make any choices. Some also include snacks or food and are a great place to do something totally different. If they don’t include food, why not find somewhere nice to head for dinner after? (You might need it to soak up the alcohol too!)
A cookery masterclass
Whether your date is a Masterchef in training or you just want to try something unique together, a cookery masterclass can be a great fun thing to try. There are a host of classes you can book into, from pasta making to chocolate decorating and so much more in between. You could decide together what you want to do, or book it as a surprise – it’s up to you! This is a great choice for learning to whip up a storm in the kitchen while also having a laugh together and doing something different.
These are just a few date ideas that you can try which are sure to impress your date, no matter what they are into. With plenty to do for the two of you and something a little different from your usual dinner date, it’s sure to be memorable.
