18 Romantic Date Night Ideas For Fall


By Livi Wilkes

Fall is officially here! As the weather gets cooler, date nights become cozier – and we all enjoy cuddling up to our partners! In honor of the launch of “cuffing” season, we’ve come up with a list of romantic fall dates to keep that spark alive.

1. Have a picnic inside.

Instead of setting up the picnic blanket outside, put it inside instead. The same fun, without the chill.

2. Themed movie nights.

Choose a theme for a movie night and make a cosy den to snuggle up in. Don’t forget the popcorn!

3. Go to a farmer’s market.

Browse around a local food market and buy some homemade treats to eat together.

4. Traditional dinner-and-a-movie.

Unlike the summer months, you aren’t missing out on getting a tan while watching a film in the dark. Make the most of it and see what’s on!

5. Work out together.

Go on a scenic bike ride through the crunchy leaves.

6. Make fall snacks.

Toffee apples, hot chocolate and apple pie…delicious.

7. One word: Oktoberfest!

Find a celebration near you and enjoy the fun and beer.

8. Go on a Coffee Shop Tour.

Discover hidden, cosy coffee shops and hang out there for a morning or afternoon.

9. Halloween, duh!

Have a scary movie marathon, paint each other’s faces or visit a haunted house.

10. Go to the zoo.

Zoos are usually more crowded in the warm months which makes for a perfectly quiet date. Take a thermos of hot chocolate with you to stay warm.

11. Watch a TV series from the beginning.

The good thing about cold weather? You don’t have to feel guilty about staying inside in your pajamas watching Netflix!

12. Toast marshmallows.

Make a bonfire and snuggle up with marshmallows.

13. Go to a spa.

Couples massage, saunas and hot tubs. All the cozy things.

14. Go on an adventure in a new town.

Drive to a new town, visit their main town attraction and eat at their most popular restaurant.

15. Visit a new restaurant neither of you have been to.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try a cuisine neither of you have tried, too!

16. Get baking together.

Spend an afternoon baking brownies, cookies and gingerbread men. Then, spend the evening eating them!

17. Go bowling.

A bit of fun competition can be sexy!

18. Rent a cottage.

If money isn’t an issue, rent a private cottage overnight for the perfect romantic getaway.

    I love your ideas! Autumn is such a pretty time of year. It can be a lot of fun to carve pumpkins together 🙂 I also love spending time indoors playing cards and games!
