8 Most Instagrammable Date Ideas
Need help planning your next date night? It can get pretty boring doing the same stuff over and over again, so why not switch things up?
We've come up with not only fun and unique date suggestions, but dates that are downright picture-perfect. Read on for eight Instagrammable date night ideas!
1. Have a Picnic
Head to your local farmer's market and get fresh fruit, veggies, cold cuts and bread. Set up a cute charcuterie board atop blankets and carpet pieces—the more different the better! You can do this anywhere: the beach, the park or even your backyard.
2. Make Ice Cream Sundaes
Hit up the store and pick up chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream (you'll need options). You'll also need colorful sprinkles, maraschino cherries, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and chopped nuts. Ask your S.O. if they have any special requests (nothing is off-limits), and set up an ice cream sundae station in your kitchen.
3. Go Rock Climbing
Chances are, your town has a local rock climbing spot (indoor is the best for beginners). Once you and your S.O. are signed up, ask one of the workers to snap some photos of you on your way up the wall. Once you make it to the top, sneak in a smooch to celebrate your victory!
4. Go on a Hike
Throw on your cutest two-piece workout set, grab your partner and go on a hike! Look up popular hiking destinations in your area and read the reviews to see what has the best views. Before you get too tired and sweaty, set up a cute photo moment. Hold your S.O.'s hand, walk in front of them and have them a pic (you know what we're talking about).
5. Bake Cookies
How cute will your S.O. look with flour all over their face? Set up a cookie-baking station and have a competition to see whose tastes and looks the best. Chances are one or both of you will have no idea what you're doing, making it all the more fun. Grab one of your siblings or parents to be the judge and impromptu photographer—hilarity will ensue.
6. Go on a Boat
This isn't as expensive as it may sound. If you live near a body of water, duffy or canoe rentals are a good choice. Or, you can sign up for dinner on a boat and join other couples for a night out on the water. Ditch the phones (except for the photo opp, of course) and focus on good conversation—you're guaranteed to have an amazing night.
7. Make Homemade Pizza
A homemade pizza can be done on the grill or in an oven. Buy some premade pizza dough and all the toppings: marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni and veggies of your choice. The best part is the process (including the messy photo opps), but definitely have a pizza delivery service on speed-dial if they don't end up tasting the best.
8. Backyard Movie Night
Dig through the attic for your dad's old projector and bring it outside. Either use a white sheet for the screen or an empty wall. Pick out a cheesy romantic movie, set up some blankets and pillows and hang a bunch of fairy lights. Have your bestie take some pics of you enjoying the movie—she'll already be there because she obviously helped you set it all up.
