Valentine's Day has come and gone, but that does not mean you cannot still treat your partner to an awesome date night! Date nights are so important for relationships as they help you to reconnect with each other, especially if you are a couple who lives a very busy life. Date nights do not have to be fancy, extravagant or expensive either; you
can keep it simple by having it at home too! Here are some of WanderfullySo’s best ideas for couples date night.
HAVE A PICNIC
If it is nice outside, there is nothing more romantic than packing up some delicious treats and yummy drinks, spreading it on a blanket and enjoying the beauty that nature has to offer. If the weather outside is not accommodating, not a problem! Move the party to anywhere in your house that you think you can make romantic.
TRY A NEW RESTAURANT
If you have become somewhat bored of your favourite spot and want something different, check out someplace new. You two could pretend to be restaurant critics reviewing the place and food! Anything to make it more fun and entertaining for you.
BE A TOURIST IN YOUR OWN CITY
When was the last time you took advantage of the sights or places everyone always wants to see when they visit? If you are anything like me, then probably the last time you had out-of-town visitors. Take an afternoon or an evening and hit up your local landmarks or must-see attractions like you are seeing them with brand new eyes, or better yet, visit the places you have not seen before but always wanted to go to.
HAVE A CAMPFIRE
Ignite the flames of passion in a smoky-approved way by gathering around a campfire in your backyard. If it is a bit too windy outside, grab your drinks and snacks and huddle by the fireplace inside instead. You could make s’mores for each other!
HAVE A SPA DAY
Why not pay a visit to your local shop for facial masks, mani-pedi supplies and massage oils for a DIY pampering session that will not only improve you and your partner’s bond but also leave you with perfect skin!
LEARN A NEW SKILL
You do not need to invest in a lot of fancy equipment to try something new. Give origami, drawing or even card tricks a shot. You will have a blast laughing over how bad you both are, at first. If you are looking for more brain stimulation, try out Google Garage, where you can find some free courses to do together and upskill yourselves.
ARRANGE A SCAVENGER HUNT
Remember how much fun it was to go on treasure hunts? Why not arrange the most fun scavenger hunt for your partner, including clues all based on your relationship and making the final prize something meaningful and unforgettable.
GO STRAWBERRY PICKING
Polkadraai Strawberry Farm in Stellenbosch is the perfect way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. You get to take your strawberries home and might as well enjoy them with some whipped cream or chocolate, whichever you prefer!
TAKE A COOKING CLASS
Brush up on your cooking skills and enjoy a cooking class together! There are many different classes available to choose from in Cape Town and it is the perfect way to judge who is the better cook between you two!
GO ON A WINE TOUR
With so many wine vineyards to choose from in Cape Town, why not take a day out to explore them all! Get a designated driver and get your grape on! If not, buy a few bottles of varieties you have never tried, print out the information about them from the Internet and DIY it at home. Do not forget the cheese!
These are just a few examples of some great ideas that you and your partner can try. Another great date idea would be to take a virtual tour with WanderfullySo! You can have a customized virtual tour made that you can enjoy from anywhere in the world. However, if you are planning a trip to Cape Town, why not book a free Concierge Session with us to make your trip easier and more enjoyable!
