World’s Best Date Night Ideas

In the back of my book, Date Your Wife, I list 100 ideas for how to date your wife. That list isn’t specific to date nights, it’s a broad and creative list of ideas for how to take great care of your wife.

Here I want to do something different. I want you to help me create the world’s best date night ideas. This morning I was sitting on my couch thinking, “What if men and women from around the world could put all of their favorite date night ideas in one place? That would be so helpful and interesting to read.”

So, let’s create this together.


  • Write a date night idea in the comments section.
  • Include your name, city, and gender so we know the context you’re writing from.
  • Spread the word about “World’s Best Date Night Ideas” and encourage your friends to submit their ideas.

This is for men, women, married couples, dating couples, singles, everybody. The more ideas the better.

Why am I doing this? Because date nights can often grow stale and routine. I want to help change that. I think the best date nights have some element of freshness, newness, and creativity to them.

I’ll get us started and put the first idea in the comments section.

Now share your ideas and spread the word!

  1. Discover something your spouse always wanted to do as a kid, but was never able to do (for example: go horseback riding, go to a professional sports game, learn how to surf, watch a favorite band in concert, dance in the rain, etc.). Then, surprise your spouse and create a date night where you do this together.

  2. I bought Judy (wife of 30 years) a new dress, pair of shoes and a ring and asked her out on a date. She asked where we were going and I said “we would figure it out.” A typical married-for-a-while answer. When I got home from work, I handed her the dress, shoes and said get ready to go, I had made reservations at a romantic restaurant. She was very excited. We had dinner and I gave her a small pearl ring just before dessert.

  3. Your book inspired me to take my wife out for a “typical” mid-week date night, where after finishing our pumpkin concrete, I presented her with a new wedding ring setting and band I had custom designed by a local artist “just because I love you.” It went well and I think was even more powerful because it wasn’t around any typical milestone (birthday, anniversary etc) and really surprised her. Thanks for the encouragement Justin!

  4. Buy a puzzle that you and your wife find fun to do. Create a playlist of some of your favorite or memorable love songs. Pour a couple glasses of wine and enjoy the night!

  5. take a class together cooking, painting ect. This next idea is more of a tradition but we go out on a date and buy each other a Christmas ornament in Dec.

  6. Pack a card table, fold-up chairs, cloths, silverware etc, prepare or buy a !nice! takeaway dinner for two, drive to a lookout, the beach, a park the riverside, anywhere scenic. Set up your ‘restaurant’ and have a great night. Weather and time of year is important. Can work best with two couples (say two guys take their wives out- one to prepare, one to chauffeur). Or if a group of friends do all the prep and waiting for you.
