2. Jump On A Trampoline

Capturing your inner kid can be great for date ideas. Find an indoor trampoline centre and jump to your heart’s content. Usually, they have obstacle courses you can complete which adds to the adventure and excitement of the day. Hold hands and jump around each other or show off your killer kart wheels and somersaults to really impress your date.

3. Sleep Under The Stars

Pitch a tent in your backyard or drag out a mattress onto the grass to observe the stars. Pile on the blankets for comfort and warmth, the cosyness will bring that extra bit of romance to the date! Maybe start a fire and roast some marshmallows too. Swap your camping stories with each other and tell your best campfire horror story. If you get scared, cuddle up to your partner!

4. Go For A Long Bike Ride

Active date ideas are great for those with active lifestyles and people with a sense of adventure. Pick a bike track that will take you through some nice scenery and pack a picnic lunch. Get the blood pumping and race to your destination or take your time and relax. Either way, you’ll have a great day pedaling your way through the track.


5. Get Your Bake On

Sometimes when your date ideas are drying up it can be fun to revisit when you first started dating! Commit to it fully and go to the same place for dinner or do the same activity. If you still have them,  wear the same clothes to add to the nostalgia trip!

This is a great way to send the sparks flying between you two again, you’ll remember how much you love each other and can reflect on how far you’ve come from your very first date!

Enjoy each other’s company with some beautiful nature surrounding you.
