Romantic date ideas—summer edition

It’s the best of both worlds. 

A few days ago, I came across a post on Instagram that described me perfectly: “An old school romantic with a dirty mind and a pure heart.” And I’ll be the first to admit it—I’m an old-school romantic. There’s nothing I like more than going out on a well-planned wine and dine date night, a night out on the town, and a romantic weekend getaway among other things. At the same time, I’m also the girl who is unafraid to ask for it, would love to have a movie-night with a side of a steamy make-out session. I’m also certain I’m not the only one. So, for those who would love to have a steamy summer romance, we have the perfect blend of adorable date ideas that you can turn up a notch for some fun. 

Baking night 


If you and your boo adore a good date night that includes getting in your comfiest clothes and spending the evening baking dessert, a baking night is adorable and might just be the date night you’ve been wanting. Skip the cookies and cupcakes and choose a recipe that requires you to get your hands dirty (pun intended). We’d recommend a chocolate ganache cake or an ice-cream sundae with one too many layers of whipped cream. You can use ingredients like chocolate icing or cream to have some fun of your own. Remember Serena, Nate, and a bowl of whipped cream with strawberries? 

Go on a picnic


A summer romance without a picnic? Doesn’t seem right. Glam up in your summer wardrobe and drive away for a sweet weekend getaway or even just a day trip to a nearby hill station. If you really want to get cheesy, show up at your beau’s doorstep to surprise and whisk them away for the weekend. Pack your favourite munchies, lay out a mat and put on some of your favourite tunes. If you want to turn it up a notch, hop into the backseat of the car, play a few steamy songs and get things going. For those who haven’t had the chance to have a steamy make-out sesh in the backseat of a car—you don’t know what you’re missing. 

Go for a beach date 


For those who love sandy hair, salty air, and tan lines, a beach date is fun, cute, and incredibly sexy at the same time. After a dip in the ocean and a romantic walk along the shore, lounge about on the deck chairs, soak in the sun, and give each other a much-needed back massage. If the massage becomes too steamy, you can even get frisky in a quiet corner of a café, the loo, or the backseat of your car. Take your pick! 

Get crazy at a sundowner


Here’s a summer twist to the run-of-the-mill wine and dine date night. Explore rooftop bars dazzling with fairy lights and live music or a bar with a view of the sunset by the sea. A sundowner is a less formal but more exciting, fun, and crazy date idea. You can spice up the date by getting your hands on one of the many dating card games which include frisky and steamy dares, wild cards, never-have-I-evers, steamy questions and more. We promise, it’ll be the most fun date you’ll ever have. 

A movie date—starry night edition 

Movie night

We’ve all heard of ‘Netflix and chill’ and are completely familiar with what it means. While you can definitely opt for that, hear us out. The sunshine season most definitely calls for an outdoor date night. You can set up a projector against a wall on the rooftop of your house and watch your favourite movie under a sky full of stars. Pro tip? Pick a movie that makes you want to hold onto your beau as close as you can, shower them with kisses, and turn the heat up, when you’re ready.
