Surprise Date Ideas

Dates are great, but do you know what’s even better? Surpize dates!

When did you last go out of your way to do something extra special for your partner? I am sure they can use a little bit of pampering. Read on to find some unique surprise date ideas for him & her. 

How to plan a surprise date?

  • Plan everything beforehand.
  • Make sure your date idea is well aligned with your partner’s interests.
  • Make sure it does not clash with any other important events.
  • Schedule it perfectly.
  • Make sure to suggest your partner the appropriate attire for the date. 

#1 Restaurant Hopping

Are you guys foodies? Who isn’t? Take your significant other on a spontaneous restaurant-hopping experience. If you are in a long-term relationship, you certainly have a favorite restaurant, and I am confident you have their menu memorized. Ditch the regular scenes and try something different. Experience new cuisines even if you aren’t sure if you’ll like them. That’s the whole point. Relationships can become too routine after a few years. Bringing in the element of surprise, trying new things together, feeling giddy, and even feeling anxious is the best way to keep it fresh even after an eternity of togetherness. 

#2 Watch The Sunset

We get not everyone is a morning person. Here’s a fitting idea for all you late risers; watch the sunset with your significant other. There’s nothing more romantic than watching the sky turn different shades of red and orange.

How do you execute it?

  • Find the perfect spot to watch the sunset.
  • Ask your partner on a date 
  • Tell them the time but don’t reveal the location
  • Pick them up from home.
  • Don’t forget to pack some coffee or tea in a flask, two cups, and some snacks.
  • Take them to the spot and surprise; you have the perfect date. 

It’s budget-friendly too.

Or you can pack up some home-cooked meal, drive her to your favorite spot, lay a blanket, and have a perfect midnight picnic. 

#4 Projector Movie Date

Yes, yes, movie nights are very ‘been there, done that’ now. Let’s take this up a notch, shall we? Get a projector; ideally, rent one or borrow it from a friend. If you don’t have a white wall, you can hang a white sheet. Get your favorite movie, popcorn of different flavors, a supply of fast food, and don’t forget some drinks, soft or hard, whichever your BAE prefers. Call your girlfriend home for a movie night and see the surprise on her face when she sees the grand setup. This might as well be the best surprise date you can plan for your partner.
