Creative Date Ideas If you want to inject a little romance or spontaneity into a date, without breaking the bank, try following some of these ideas.
You might just surprise yourself – and your partner!
"Shop" for your dream furnishings in elegant craft galleries, jewellery stores, and similar shops.
Visit a specialty food factory such as a chocolate factory.
Drive along the outer borders of your city or county, exploring new neighbourhoods and villages where you've never been. Ride a city's entire public rail transit system, going out on remote branch lines, just for the heck of it. Spend the whole evening dressed and acting as characters from a play, movie, or book that you both enjoyed. Speak only gibberish and let your thoughts be understood from your emotions, gestures, and tone. Explore a wild and scenic place you've always wanted to check out. Walk around celebrity neighbourhoods, looking for glimpses of the rich and famous. Do something completely out of character--something you ordinarily wouldn't be caught dead even thinking about.
You will be at all the attractions that are hidden nearby. Star gazing - Get a book on constellations and watch the stars.
As the sun goes down, watch them appear black and strikingly beautiful against the sky. Go to a cappuccino bar, drink decaf and get to know one another.
Bundle up and go someplace to watch the sun set over a silhouette of bare trees. Go for a walk in the snow and catch snow flakes on your tongue. End a winter walk with hot chocolate and mini marshmallows. Take a night-time walk to look at your neighbours holiday decorations and lights. If you know how to rollerblade and he doesn't, teach him. This date is great for breaking the ice because both of you will embarrass yourselves so much that you won't help but be able to laugh. Besides, there's nothing like the ambiance of a great, romantic cafe to get you in the mood. It seems simple enough, but you'd be surprised about what you'd find out about someone if you'd just give them a chance to tell you.
