Are you lusting for the perfect date night? Are you ready to take things to the next level? With a little effort and planning, you can map out the perfect date night. Here are some tips on how to plan a perfect date night.
1: Get a Room
You can always go back to your place, but if you really want to spice things up try switching up where you sleep. Check-in to a cool guesthouseor score a hotel room with a view and get out of your regular routine. It’s exciting to stay somewhere different for the night, and we all know date night is about excitement.
2: Eat Somewhere That’s Tasty, Healthy, and Fun
Go get some good food. Humans have been bonding over food for thousands of years, and you have to admit it, there’s something special about sharing a tasty meal with that special someone. Although everyone has their own tastes and preferences, and this is by no means a health pitch, choosing food that’s both tasty and healthy will go a long way in making your date night that much more pleasurable. Find a place you enjoy that will leave you feeling good after you eat. Be sure the place you choose is somewhere you can relax, talk, and be yourself.
Picking accommodation that’s walking distance from where you want to eat means you can enjoy that extra cocktail, beer, or wine without worrying about the ride home, and there is always something romantic about a romantic evening stroll.
3: Plan a Fun Activity Before You Eat
Do something other than eat at a restaurant. This could be checking out the fishing village next to your guesthouse or bed and breakfast, taking a walk on the East Coast Trail, visiting the local craft shop, signing out some snowshoes, visiting the ice skating loop, or enjoying a hot chocolate beside the ocean.
4: Get a Suite with A Hot Tub
Relaxing in a hot tub is always fun, so if you can score a suite with hot tub and when it’s cold outside, it’s even better. It can be the dead of winter, conditions where nobody would want to relax on an oceanside deck, but with a hot tub, you can relax outside in bubbling bliss with snowflakes falling into your wine glass. That beats the pants off of Netflix any day.
Have you ever tried to talk to someone that’s looking down at their phone instead of into your eyes? You don’t want to be that person. Do yourself a favor and take your date night to the next level by turning off and putting away your phone.
6: Dont Skip Dessert
Date night isn’t the night to skip dessert. You don’t have to have crazy insane portions, but something like a dark chocolate truffle or crème brûlée will not go amiss
Bonus Tip #2:
Did You Know Real Dark Chocolate Is a Proven Aphrodisiac?
Nobody has fun when they’re hungry or thirsty. Even when everything else is perfect, if you or your date are suffering from thirst or hunger, you’re simply not going to enjoy yourselves. Prevent this by making sure you have snacks and drinks with you. Bring things that require little to no preparation, like cheese, crackers, baked goods, fruit, and something crunchy.
