There’s no better feeling than the refreshing warm weather of spring after months of weary winter snow. With spring only days away, now is the time to start brainstorming fun date ideas to get you and your partner out in the sunshine.
After all, the two of you deserve to stretch your legs after months of hibernating (or binge-watching Netflix on the couch under a blanket, we aren’t here to judge). Whether it’s your first date with a new partner or you’ve been in a relationship for years, try these fun spring date ideas to let romance bloom.
Go on a hike somewhere new
Hiking along a beautiful nature trail will give you a full view of the buds starting to blossom in spring. The two of you will love hearing the chirp of birds and the smell of new grass after a dreary winter. Even if you’re not an avid hiker, there are plenty of nature walks and trails in your local park full of scenic views.
This fun activity also gives you ample time to talk to each other. It’s great for partners looking to reconnect or for new lovers who want to get to know each other better. This will make stronger memories than just chatting over a cup of coffee. Don’t be afraid to work up a sweat and exceed the average 6,000 steps people walk each day in order to get those endorphins pumping.
Make a spring meal together
Now that spring is finally here, bees are traveling hundreds of yards to pollinate your favorite spring fruits and vegetables. Whether you’re a kitchen connoisseur or not, plucking your favorite foods from the farmer’s market will inspire culinary creativity.
Performing activities together is a great way to bond and connect over shared interests: in this case, food. The best part? You get to eat the culmination of your hard work. Try to cook with spring foods you’ve never tried before to make it more of a challenge. Even if the dishes taste terrible at the end of your date, these memories will last for years to come.
With warmer weather on its way, it’s finally time to tackle your spring wardrobe. When you want new shorts and light jackets, grab your partner and go thrifting!
Second-hand clothing stores are full of hidden gems that could enhance your spring look — or not. Half the fun of a thrift store is trying on items you’d never think of buying yourself. You’ll have a blast with your partner as you try on crazy pieces of clothing. Try to pick out whacky items for the other to try on and make it a spring fashion show. Who knows, you might even find that oversized fur jacket looks perfect on you.
If you’re stuck for spring dates this year, try out these fun ideas to make the most of it.
