creative spring date ideas

With cold weather on its way out (finally!), the season for romantic dates beyond the movie theater and coffee shop is here. Here’s a list of creative spring date ideas that make the most of the season.

Visit a farmers market and host spring brunch

Sick of seeing the same root vegetables at the market? Yep, us too. Visit your local farmer’s market and pick up some new season produce, like fresh basil, tomatoes and berries. Don’t forget a bunch of daffodils to brighten your space. Then come home and cook a spring brunch – don’t forget the mimosas with fresh berries!

Host a chocolate festival

Grab a chocolate cookbook and prepare a chocaholic feast together! Master the art of soufflés, whip up a fluffy chocolate mousse, and get messy rolling chocolate truffles.

Volunteer at your local animal shelter

Cuddle and play with kittens and puppies, and don’t forget to ask the staff which of the older pets could most use some extra love. Take them for a walk – they’ll love feeling the sun on their fur too!

Enjoy nature together

You’ve been stuck indoors for months. Go on a hike or a visityour local botanical garden and celebrate the start of the warmer months. You could also turn the trip into a “treasure hunt” to see who spots different flowers or birds first.

Get planting!

Even if you live in an apartment everyone can enjoy their own herb garden. Pick up some herbsand a box planter at your local garden center, and get planting. Soon you’ll be enjoying fresh, fragrant herbs (and the pride of growing it yourself!).
