100 Date Night Ideas


I’m counting down the days until I’m no longer in a long distance relationship. When I can spend longer than 2 days a month together and can actually have frequent date nights, that would be a fine thing, eh?





It can be all too easy for couples to do the same Netflix, films and binge every Friday night. So whether you’re looking for some new date ideas or for first date ideas or things to do with your friends, these 100 should certainly keep you going for a while…

Don’t worry if you can’t choose, I’m going to be writing my favourites onto pieces of paper and put them all together in a jar. Then every Friday, or whenever I fancy a date night, I’ll pick something out for us to both do. You can then put the idea back in the jar or replace with something new once you’ve done it. The best thing is most of these ideas are free or relatively cost free, so there’s really no excuse to do something a little bit different every once in a while.





Do you have any other date night ideas? Do you have frequent date nights? What’s your ultimate date night?
