30 Days of Lists » Date Night Ideas

I'm a firm believer that anything with the one you love can be a date.

• Grocery Store Date - buy something totally silly and random for each other.
• McDonalds Date - grab a battery-operated candlestick, table cloth and make it night.
• Home Movie Date - pick one special movie to watch together once a year, hooray traditions!
• Photo Date - take your cameras and spend time photographing your area and each other.
• Road Trip Date - pick someplace over 2 hours away and make the day of it. bonus for mix tapes.
• Drawing Date - head to a local park or botanical garden for nature sketching.
• Lego Date - build something together!
• Video Game Date - play through a whole co-op game together.

All of these are silly fun things I've done before...like I said...you can turn anything into a date if you love the person you're with.
