Love is in the air people 💖. We know that the dating scene has changed significantly over the years and that going to movies and dinner is just not cutting it anymore. Couples are looking for a little more excitement and adventure these days. So, in the spirit of love, We have come up with 5 unique date ideas with outfit inspo so you can be lookin’ like fine wine 😉🍷.

Market Date Treasure Hunt:

Okay, this is simply the BEST (and our personal favourite) date idea. We all agree that markets are great, right? But after about an hour, you feel like you’ve pretty much seen it all. Spice up your market date with a treasure hunt!

So, the idea is that you split up and each person buys a bunch of items for the other based on certain parameters. Now of course, a market only has a limited range of items and may not have exactly what you need, but the fun is in the challenge.

Here are a few parameters to help you out:

1) Your partner’s favourite drink 🍹

2) Your partner’s favourite snack 🍓

3) Your partner’s favourite colour 🌈

4) Something that reminds you of them 💡

5) An everyday thing your partner could use 🔧

Outdoor Picnic Date but Make It Classy:
