1. Create Your Very Own Signature Drink

Date night ideas like creating your own drink are perfect, regardless of whether you prefer alcoholic drinks or would rather stick with teas, juices, punches, and smoothies. Gather your favorite ingredients and experiment with mixing flavor profiles to come up with your own signature drink that is uniquely yours.

2. DIY Firepit Desert Night

Who doesn’t love S’mores? But making S’mores anywhere but on an open fire just isn’t the same. Watch a video on how to build a firepit. Then head on over to your local home improvement store for the supplies. Build your firepit. Now you have something you are proud of and can use for the rest of your life. So have fun making S’mores together over and over and over again!

3. Take a Trail Ride

Getting outside to enjoy all that fresh air is not only good for your soul, but it’s also good for your relationship. So, take a trail ride and enjoy all that beauty and solitude together. Sometimes a conversation is not needed to enjoy one another’s company with creative date night ideas.

4. Rent a Cozy Mountain Cabin

When was the last time you treated yourself? Why not rent a romantic, cozy cabin in the woods? One with a jacuzzi, wine bar, games, and more. You can also take your own festivities with you. Don’t forget the chocolates, popcorn, drinks, board games, movies, favorite foods, and anything else you enjoy.

5. Take a Dance Class

Fun date night ideas after the holidays can include a couple’s dance class. That might include a line dancing class, swing dancing class, salsa dance class, or even a square dancing class if that’s what you’re into. You can even watch some YouTube videos if you don’t want to learn in public. Dancing is fun and brings out all kinds of feel-good emotions. Dancing is something you can do together as a couple for the rest of your lives.

6. Geocaching

Geocaching is a game that combines GPS technology with an outdoor hide-and-seek activity. It’s basically a global treasure hunt where people look for caches of hidden objects using clues left by the hiders for the seekers. GPS devices are used to find hidden caches based on the clues provided. Geocaching is a great outdoor activity for couples.

7. Take a Home Improvement Class

Sign up for a project at your local home improvement store that you and your partner can build together. It could be a home DIY project, a craft, or something else. The point of date night ideas after the holidays is having something you can both do together and will enjoy. 

8. Go Nature Picking

Nature picking involves going to your favorite nature spot or even your backyard if you have lots of natural elements there. Together you will gather things like pinecones, acorns, leaves, Spanish moss, twigs, and anything else you can find. Then take those items and make something decorative. That could be a wreath, centerpiece, wall art, holiday or birthday gifts, etc.

9. Vintage Item Collecting

If you and your partner have similar interests, you could start a new hobby such as vintage item collecting. This involves visiting garage sales, flea markets, vintage shops, junkyards, etc. to look for the vintage item you’ve chosen to collect. These could be old coins, toys, fine art, decorative items, old signs, or something else. And if you don’t already have a space to store your collected items, you and your partner could make a project out of designing and building a spot for your treasures. If you need some inspiration, just watch an episode of American Pickers.
