For a local, low-cost date idea with bags of old-school glamour, head out for a night walk with your partner.
Date night difficulty: 😅 ◯ ◯ ◯ ◯
Things you’ll need: Appropriate footwear, torch, blankets and a flask of your favorite drink. For extra brownie points, pack a tasty picnic.
Time needed to prepare: 2 minutes (without the picnic).
Taking a stroll by moonlight will illuminate your local area in a completely different way and the far quieter atmosphere is conducive to some terrific conversation.
Walking side-by-side can offer up interesting conversations; in fact, even just walking and holding hands or simply ‘being’ together will create bonding moments.
To make the most of the beautiful night's sky, try to get away from the bright city lights if possible, maybe even into the countryside. Depending on where you live safety might be a concern, so try to find a place that does have at least a few other people roaming around as well. Make sure you are both comfortable with the route before you set off.
No moonlit stroll is complete without a moonlit picnic. Be sure to bring a bottle of your favorite wine or a flask of hot chocolate, a delicious picnic and some comfy blankets for if you want to stop, look up and stare.
