After you’ve been together for a while, it’s easy to run out of date night ideas.
Our hectic schedules usually get in the way and it’s much easier to just chill at home or have dinner and drinks somewhere. You don’t have to make a lot of effort and it still counts as a date, right?
Well, fun date nights shouldn’t stop after you’ve tied the knot. You need to work on the relationship, seduce your husband daily, and try to spend quality time together even after years in a marriage.
Don’t worry, we got you covered with 19 fun and creative date night ideas that will help you bond with your man and keep the fire alive.
Casual Date Night Ideas
1. Try new foods
Unless you’re an absolute foodie, there must be a food you haven’t tried yet. Whether it’s Mexican, Japanese, Indian, Lebanese or something completely different, organize an exciting dinner that will give you and your man a chance to experiment with food.
2. Go on a picnic
Picnics are sweet, romantic and cheap, which always makes them a good idea. All you need is nice weather, some snacks, and a blanket, and you’re good to go. This one is also lovely if you want to include kids in your date night plans.
3. Play in the snow
Remember how much joy snow used to bring you when you were a kid? Wake up your inner child and invite your hubby to play in the snow. Build a snowman, have a snowball fight or have him pull you in a sled.
4. Go to a sports game
Want to make your husband happy? Take him to a sports game. Depending on how much you want to spend, you can go to a small local event or splurge on a big game.
5. Act like tourists
You don’t have time or money to take a trip somewhere? Never mind, you can still be tourists in your own city and have almost as much fun. Visit a museum, go to a touristy part of your city, take photos and try to see everything from a different point of view.
6. Go to a flea market
Although it doesn’t sound very exciting, a date at a flea market can be a blast if you open your mind. You never know what treasure you may stumble upon and you’re bound to have some laughs as you rummage about.
Sporty Date Night Ideas
7. Play a sport together
Playing sports together can actually be very beneficial for your relationship. So, pick a sport and enjoy a friendly game. You can learn some new moves or just have fun on the court. And remember that competition can be very sexy.
8. Go ice skating
Ice skating is a classic winter date idea, but many couples never dare to try it. Even if you’re scared, you should give it a try. It’s super fun and romantic, and even falling can be cute when you have your hubby to help you back up.
9. Go hiking
Hiking is an amazing date idea for nature lovers. No matter where you live, you must have some great hiking trails in your area where you and your man can get away from the world and just enjoy fresh air and each other’s company.
10. Go biking
Another awesome idea for active couples is biking. If you don’t have your own bikes, you can always rent them. Find a good biking route and enjoy a peaceful conversation while you exercise.
Sexy Date Night Ideas
11. Have a sex marathon
You don’t have to go out to have a perfect date night with your man, you can have just as much fun in your bedroom. Challenge each other to an all-night sex marathon and add some spice by trying something you’ve never done before.
12. Go skinny dipping
Feeling naughty? Pretend you and your husband are still teenagers and do something a little bold, like skinny dipping. The adrenaline will get your heart racing and you probably won’t be able to keep your hands off each other.
13. Plan a board game night with a twist
A board game night is a perfect idea when you’re tired and don’t feel like going out but you still want to enjoy a date. But instead of regular board games, add a twist to it. Play strip poker, truth or dare, or turn any other game into its sexy version with a little bit of imagination.
Exciting Date Night Ideas
14. Go to an amusement park
Amusement parks are not just for kids. Take a romantic ride on the Ferris wheel, get your adrenaline rush on a wild rollercoaster or just eat some cotton candy and let your hubby win you a teddy bear.
15. Go dancing
If you liked to go dancing when you were younger and single, why should you give it up? Ask your man to take you out and dance the night away just like in the old times. Dancing is also an excellent aphrodisiac when you want to get him in the mood.
16. Hit a karaoke night
For most of us, going to a karaoke night means stepping outside our comfort zone big time. But that’s exactly why you should do it. Spend your date night at a karaoke club and challenge your man to a sing-off.
17. Take a wine or brewery tour
Is there a vineyard or a brewery somewhere close to where you live? Use the opportunity to relax in the countryside and do a wine or brewery tour. It’s a fabulous combination of nature and exquisite taste for couples who love the finer things in life.
18. Have an adventure
If you and your hubby are adrenaline junkies, an adventure will be an ideal date for you. Go skydiving, bungee jumping or rafting, anything that gives you that blood rush you crave, and make sure to find time for adventuring at least once a year.
19. Take a hot-air balloon ride
There’s hardly anything more romantic than a hot-air balloon ride. It’s beautiful and exciting at the same time, and it will be a date you’ll never forget. Perfect for an anniversary.
There you have it, 19 memorable date night ideas that will help you reconnect with your husband and keep that spark alive even after years together.
