Our favorite thing to give each other is date night gifts! We love experience gifts for couples, and the gift of date night is always a great idea! Here are 10 great date night gifts to give your significant other!
Our first year married I gave my husband Jacob a year of dates gift with 12 pre-planned, pre-paid dates to do each month of the year. It was such a great gift that we enjoyed all year! We loved it so much, I’ve given him a version of that gift every year ever since!
I’d love to do 12 months every year for Christmas. However, some years I don’t have it in me to do an entire year. Some years we’ve lived through a pandemic and it’s been too uncertain to book tickets and make plans. But every year, without fail, I make sure there are a few date night gifts for fun date nights we can enjoy! The best part, he’s joined the fun and we both look forward to these gifts most of all!

A Local Date You’ve Never Done Before
I love to find a Groupon Outing. It’s a great way to get a deal and support a local venue! Look at their “Things to Do” tab and find something exciting and interesting! There’s always something new and fun to try in your area, and Groupon has awesome deals to try said things. You can also do a gift card and let them choose the outing themself!
Ticket to a Concert or Event
I love getting a great deal, and sometimes a freebie concert or event date with this how-to get a free date night hack!
These are always the dates I turn into the baring teeth emoji because the cost can be steep! Giving date nights as a gift helps me justify the expense. They are truly special, and fitting in a pricey date seems os much more justifiable when it’s part of a gift budget to begin with!
- Get a Couple’s Journal to Connect OverOne of my favorite gifts we’ve used for a date night is the Loom Connecting Couples Journal. These are so amazing that we have a huge post about couples’ journals! They are a truly great way to open up communication and start a conversation. Each journal gives hundreds of prompts with two sides, one for each person to fill out. They are a great starting point for couples to really share thoughts, concerns, and document feelings.
Even if you’ve read the 5 Love Languages, it never hurts to brush up on them! In fact, your love languages can evolve with your relationship, so we highly recommend taking the quiz and discussing it every year or so. Also, we created a FREE Printable worksheet to download and make this a fun date night experience!
If you’re a big true crime tv or podcast fan, you’re going to love this date! Hunt a Killer sends you a case file and turns you into the detective to solve the clues and the crime. Their writers are fantastic, and you can do a one-off date or sign up for a series to solve. They make an unforgettable date night you can do from anywhere, including your home!
Dinner and a movie is always a great idea, and always makes great date night gifts! I love to get a Fandango gift card so we can choose any theater. You could also grab a gift card to a nearby restaurant near a theater in your area. That sets you up for a fantastic movie date night. And also, a gift everyone loves receiving!
Fun Date Night Gifts Add Ons
You can also further a date night gift with some fun items that help with date night. Here are a few ideas:
- A new date night shirt. My husband and I each like dressing up a bit before we go out. A collared shirt for him and a fun dressy top for me are always fun date night gifts!
- Mints. Are these ever a bad idea to have on hand during a date night?
- Cash. It helps to have a slush fund. We also live in a major metropolitan area and often need parking cash. I love getting a few $10 bills to keep on hand.
- Cologne or perfume. It just helps set the mood!
- Date night conversation cards. A restaurant night is always fun, but conversation cards make it a more meaningful date, and you can use them all year!
We hope this helps inspire a few more dates this year! And most of all, we hope some date night gifts help you both feel a little more love this year!
