30 Date Ideas


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. For real, you’re looking at the next two weekends if you’re trying to get out of the house. If you read my goals for 2018, February is my month to plan a date. Since I was brainstorming anyway, I thought I would share some ideas with everyone else.

Due to kids, schedules, money, or just life, sometimes you can’t get out of the house. Dates at home can be just as refreshing, so don’t feel like you have to go out all of the time. As long as you’re making the time, that’s really what counts!

Stay Home

  • Rent a movie and get takeout
  • Share a bottle of wine and appetizers
  • Play cards
  • Buy a new lotion and give foot massages
  • Have a fondue night
  • Build your own pizzas together
  • Look through your wedding album or old pictures
  • Create a couple and/or family bucket list
  • Play a board game


Get Out of the House

  • Go out for dinner, but also search “questions to ask your spouse on a date”
  • Get a couples massage
  • Hit the driving range
  • Take a cooking class
  • Find a drive-in movie and bring your favorite snacks
  • Get coffee and relax without phones
  • Go bowling
  • Play putt-putt (for those of us who aren’t driving range quality)
  • Visit a comedy club
  • Take turns participating in the other person’s hobby
  • See a movie
  • Visit a winery, brewery, or distillery
  • Go on a hike
  • Go rock climbing
  • Find a class to make your own beer
  • Revisit a restaurant from your dating life
  • Go to a concert or play
  • Play tourist in your town and go to a museum or sightseeing
  • Go on a walk
  • Go to happy hour if time or money is tight
  • Book a night or weekend away
