Hi, yours truly here, Ann-Marie!

I remember when my fiancé asked me out on our first date. I asked him if I could make one date request (he said of course): can we do something other than just dinner? I didn't want anything expensive, but I wanted something more unique and interactive for us. And boy did he come through: he took us to a park and put on a cooking show for me as he set up a (HUGE) charcuterie board!

So, how do you come up with new ideas for date night? While there are many great products out there that give numerous ideas, here are 8 trending date night ideas that we highly recommend!

Idea 1:

Go to your local thrift store and pick out an outfit for each other to wear! Then go to your favorite spot wearing said outfits. 

Idea 2:

Go to a record store and pick out a record together. Then go home, pour some wine and grab a sweet treat; just relax and enjoy the company and music. 

Idea 3:

Hop in the car and go on a mini road-trip to somewhere new in your hometown. If you're feeling really adventurous, don't turn on the GPS and just see where the road leads. 

Idea 4: 

Go to a bookstore and pick out a book to read together. You can spend every date night for the next couple weeks enjoying a leisurely pastime!

Idea 5:

Schedule a photoshoot just because! Having a special date to look forward to makes the date that much more special. 

Idea 6:

Go visit a local museum, aquarium, zoo or memorial. 

Idea 7:

Create something together! Write a short story or a song, paint by numbers or sketch an original drawing. Try a DIY project. Get (literally) creative!

Idea 8:

Go to a dollar store nearby and pick out each other's favorite treat and drink. Then go watch the stars come out! (Ok, this one's not trending, but we think it's a great date idea!)

Memorable dates don't have to be complicated or expensive. They're about learning each other's interests and cultivating interests together. These trending date night ideas are sure to leave you laughing and enjoying! After all, these are the good old days!
