4 Out-of-the-Box Date Ideas

August 24, 2022

You’ve most probably gone to the movies, out to eat, and maybe even bowling or mini-golfing before. Those dates were fun, but now you’re looking for something a little different. Well, date night doesn’t have to be the same old monotonous routine every time.

Trying anything out-of-the-box can help you and your date get to know each other more uniquely. So, if you’re both up for an adventure, here are four out-of-the-box date ideas:

Complete a Puzzle

Completing a puzzle together is somewhat nostalgic and romantic. It might seem like a childish date idea, but it can be a lot of fun. It requires teamwork, problem-solving skills, and a lot of patience! You can make it more challenging by choosing a big puzzle with a lot of pieces.

Go Rock-Climbing

If you and your date are up for a bit of a physical challenge, then go rock-climbing! It’s a great way to get your adrenaline pumping and a fun way to see who’s more competitive.

Catch the Sunrise Together

There’s something special about watching the sunrise with someone, especially when you don’t get to catch the sunrise every day. You can head out before dawn, drive to a spot with a good view, and watch the sun slowly peek over the horizon. Bring some coffee or tea to keep you warm!

Progressive Dinner Date

Get ready to restaurant hop as you eat delicious food! Start with an appetizer at one restaurant, your main course at a second restaurant, and finally a dessert at a third restaurant. Make it extra interesting by putting restaurant names in a hat and taking turns drawing one for each part of the date.


These are just four out-of-the-box date ideas that can help you and your date bond in newer ways. You can see them in a new light, and you might have a lot of fun in the process. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something new!
