10 Fun Date Night Ideas

Paris, FR

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and maybe you’re like me and over the same ol’ dinner plans. Or maybe you’re just looking for a few fun date night ideas. Either way, I wanted to share a few of our favorite date nights and ways to switch things up a bit. (Send this to your hubby! ;0)

Fun Date Night Ideas

Game Night

We LOVE playing Scrabble and got a special edition board from T’s sister for Christmas. I’m insanely competitive and we keep an ongoing score! We drink martinis and have cheese while we play!

Cozy Night In

Make homemade popcorn (it’s so easy and makes ALL the difference – all you need are kernels, coconut oil, pink sea salt and a pot!), and put on a classic movie like Casablanca, Thomas Crown Affair, or any of the James Bond movies.

Whip up an Italian Dish

Even if you can’t cook – it’s fun to try with wine flowing and classic Italian music playing in the background. Make a big cheese plate to nosh on so you don’t get hangry before the food is ready! Try lasagna, chicken parm, and turkey meatballs.


Get out of your day to day environment and book a cool hotel for a night! Meet at the lobby bar, and enjoy all of the hotel amenities – from the pool to the spa, restaurants and more. It will totally spice things up.

Do Something Sporty

Bond with your man over his favorite sport – and let him teach you a technique or two. Think tennis, golf, go-kart racing!

Get Fancy

Get all dolled up and pick a hotel lobby bar to meet at. Then book a table at a fancy restaurant you wouldn’t normally try, and end the night at a jazz or comedy club.

Sushi Night

When all else fails, head to your best local sushi spot. Everyone can find something they like at a sushi joint plus it’s a very shareable food. Sit back, relax, maybe order a sake, and enjoy!

Channel Your Inner Picasso

Head to the closest art store and pick up paint, brushes and canvases. Pick a theme – or throw any boundaries out the window and just paint whatever your heart desires! See where the wind blows ya!

Take A Class

A cooking class, a wine tasting, an olive oil sampling, or a cheese pairing class are all perfect (and yummy) ways to switch up your typical date night.

Couples Massage

T and I love to go to this hole in the wall place in West Village for cheap 1 hour massages. I think it’s legit $40 for an hour!!! It’s such a nice treat and way to unwind together.

    […] For shoes, I wore my favorite Aquazzura lace up sandals. Their heels are 100% worth the splurge because they last forever, never go out of style, and don’t kill your feet when you walk in them! I put on these fun V. Chapman gold cross earrings for a Dolce & Gabbana, Italian inspired look and kept the rest of my jewelry simple. These earrings have quickly become my go-to for date night! […]
