Sweet Spring Date Ideas For 2021
These date ideas are broke down into first outdoor spring date ideas and then indoor spring date ideas! But if you are making a spring date bucket list just combine them all into one list for your bucket list. Now onto the spring date inspiration ideas!
Outdoor spring date ideas:
1: Spring time picnic
This is first because it is probably my favorite sweet spring date ideas for 2021 because after the last 1+ we all need to get outside and eat some yummy food on a blanket.
I got this picnic blanket a few years ago and absolutely love it. It can be used in all kinds of situations and you can even put it on sand and it keeps the sand away and use it on damp grass and you can sit on it and still be dry. Definitely recommend getting a resilient picnic blanket like that for this cute date idea!
2: Visit a farmers market
Farmers markets are so cute and of course have the added benefit of you being able to pick up some fresh produce and other goodies during the date.
If you don’t already know of one near you then just do a little googling because most towns have at least one farmers market and usually they are on Saturday or Sundays! And a lot of times there are additional vendors that you can get coffee or breakfast from as well.
3: Go to a vineyard tour
Vineyard tours are a perfect spring time date. The weather is nice enough but not too hot so you can spend the day touring and then tasting lots of wine outside. Wine and pretty weather? I would say that is a total win!
If you don’t live near a vineyard then you could make this into a whole weekend getaway or a little road trip which is extra cute.
4: Watch the sunrise together
Spring time sunrises are so pretty and getting up early to appreciate nature is a great way to kick off the warmer weather.
You can make this into a whole date by going to grab coffee or breakfast after the sunrise is done too. And remember to grab some blankets if you are going to leave your car to watch the sunrise- it can still be a bit chilly!
5: Go to the zoo
Zoo dates are another personal favorite! We are lucky enough to live less than 30 minutes from a zoo so this is a frequent date that we love in the spring time and I definitely recommend doing a zoo date in the spring time if you live close enough to one.
6: Take an afternoon hike
Any dates where you are able to get outside are great in the spring time.
And hiking is a win-win because it is a cute date and it can also double as your exercise for the day as well! Try finding a nearby national or state park that you haven’t been to before to make this an extra special hiking date.
7: Pick wildflowers together
*cue that picking wildflowers song*
But really this is a cute date that is the best during the spring because this is the season for flowers! If you don’t want to actually find wildflowers you can also probably find a farm or orchard of some sort near you with pick your own flowers options.
8: Go get ice cream
Any date option that involves eating sweets is a great date.
But for this date to make it more special I recommend trying to find a fun or unique ice cream place around you that you don’t go to often!
9: Find an outdoor concert or play
Try using the Events page on Facebook to look for outdoor concerts or plays that are happening near you this spring.
If you are looking for affordable outdoor spring date ideas for 2021 this is great because often times you can find free outdoor concerts and plays to attend.
10: Attend a local festival
Local festivals are my personal favorite date idea! I really hope that it is safe soon to start attending and having these again.
And they are always such a fun date with lots of entertainment, tasty food, and a great way for you and your significant other to stay involved in the community together.
11: Go biking together
Bike riding is another fun outdoor couple activity that also doubles as your exercise for the day.
You can combine this with another date too like biking to go get ice cream!
12: Pick strawberries (or any other seasonal fruit)
Strawberries aren’t usually ripe until summer time where I live but that will depend on your location. So just do a little digging to see what fruits that you can pick yourself are in season in spring where you live.
Then after you pick a season fruit you can head home and make a yummy pie out of it to continue the date.
13: Try a new coffee shop
Trying new things together is always fun!
And coffee shops is one of the best ones to try out in my book because when you find a new coffee shop that you both love that is so fun and special!
14: Visit a flea market
Flea markets are a great time even if you aren’t on the hunt for anything in particular.
Usually you can bet that you will find some crazy things and maybe a gem or two while you are shopping.
15: Have an earth day date
Plant a tree together, volunteer together, do some gardening.
Pick an earth day related date this spring time to give back to the planet and spend some quality time with your significant other while doing it.
16: Find a local botanical garden
Botanical gardens are another one of my favorites!
Most botanical gardens will have different decorations and different plants showcased based on the season. And personally spring is one of my favorites! I definitely recommend adding a botanical garden visit to your spring dates bucket list.
Indoor spring date ideas:
1: Bake a seasonal pie together
The first of the indoor spring date ideas is a great one because in the end you get to eat a delicious pie!
I mentioned above that you could go and pick your own fruit for the pie but if that isn’t an option for you then just go buy some. Regardless you will have a fun time on this cute indoor date.
2: Plant a windowsill herb garden
This is another fun one that is not only so spring time but also has the benefits of you getting something out of it in the long run.
Cooking with fresh herbs is amazing and actually make the herb garden is a wonderful spring time date that you can do indoors.
3: Make your own ice cream
Going and getting ice cream isn’t nearly as fun as making your own on a rainy day.
Get a maker like this and spend the afternoon making yummy ice cream with your partner.
4: Paint your own planters
This indoor spring date idea is so crafty and fun!
You can thrift some planters at your local thrift store and get some planters and then stop by a home repair store and pick up outdoor paint if you want to put them outside. If you are going to keep them inside then use any paint!
5: Make each other spring cocktails
I love little cocktail challenge dates like these.
You could each pick a couple cocktails and then take turns making them for each other and ranking them! Be prepared to get a little tipsy though!
6: Breakfast in bed date morning
This is the perfect date idea in the spring time. Windows open? Birds chirping? Breakfast in bed?
A total dream.
7: Do a spring themed paint ‘n sip night
Do a little digging on Amazon and find the perfect spring themed paint by the numbers for your spring paint n sip night.
Here are a couple I found:
Lastly one filled with butterflies
8: Do a living room camping night
The final indoor spring date night idea is such a fun night- living room camping night!
Make a little fort or just snuggle up with stove top smores and put a bonfire YouTube video up on the TV to really set the mood.
