It’s time to spring-clean your date-night routine! Here are some creative ideas to get your out of your cold-weather rut. No more takeout and Netflix for us, thanks.
Creative spring date ideas:
1. Recover from the dry winter.
Slough off that winter dryness and get pampered together with a couple’s mani and pedi. Or head to the spa to ditch all that “I’m so cold” tension you’ve been experiencing in your shoulders and back all winter.
2. Create a bucket list for the season.
Don’t let the spring (and summer) fly by without warning. It’s easy to look back on a season with regret: “Why didn’t we go on picnics?” “Why didn’t we attend that festival?” “Why didn’t we host a backyard movie night?” Spend a date night dreaming about what you’d like to do or make this spring and summer, then start scheduling them into the calendar.
3. Take up gardening.
Now that the ground has thawed, make it work for you. Spend a weekend working in (or creating) a garden, whether it’s in your backyard, on your balcony, or it’s just a few potted herbs on your windowsill. Not sure where to start? Sign up for a class through a local greenhouse, garden centre or community college.
Note: April 22nd is Earth Day. Maybe plant a tree together?
4. Host the first BBQ of the year.
Now that your backyard is in better shape, send out the invites and host a BBQ dinner party under the stars. String up some twinkly lights — rent outdoor heaters and provide blankets if it’s still a little chilly — and celebrate the end of your collective hibernation.
5. Buy something new — or old.
Hunt for treasure together. Freshen up your home(s) this spring with new art or accessories from an outdoor art show or antique market.
6. Go to the (amateur) theatre.
Every spring, high schools, colleges and universities everywhere put on impressive theatrical productions. Support emerging talent — and save a few bucks — by visiting your alma mater on date night.
