By Posted on 7 Comments 4 min read

Looking for some fun summer date nights?!? Today we are sharing 40 summer date night ideas that are perfect for an outdoor date night at home, or for a fun night out on the town!

Creating A Date Night Environment

Summer is here! Time to have some fun with your loved ones! Earlier this year, Jake and I decided it was time in invest some time and money into our backyard. We wanted to make a patio space for cozy date nights at home and to be able to entertain there as well.

The main feature we wanted on the new patio space was a fire pit. We knew it was something that would get a lot of use this summer for at home date nights!

I was looking for the perfect fire feature for this space and found THIS one at Wayfair! I instantly loved it! We wanted a propane gas fire pit that we could move around if we needed to, something that would make a statement, be easy to use, and be able to store the propane tank inside itself. This one checked all the boxes and more! We have been enjoying it so much and roasting lots of marshmallows. Finding the perfect outdoor fire can be an adventure but whatever you are looking for, Wayfair will have it!

We have been so grateful for this outdoor space and the easy atmosphere it has provided for quality time together at home. This new space has got my juices flowing on all the fun actives to want to do this summer with my hubby. It got me thinking about all the date nights we would like to host and do. Today we are sharing 40 fun summer date night ideas.


Summer Date Night Ideas At Home

Outdoor Movie Projector

Host a movie night and watch a movie outdoors. Lay out a bunch a blankets and lawn chairs for the occasion. Even setting up a little concessions stand could be super fun too!


Backyard picnic anyone?! Take dinner and a blanket outside and enjoy the ambience!

Water Balloon Fight

You are never too old for a water balloon fight. Have you seen these cool balloons?! They fill up with water and tie off all by themselves in under a minute! Such an amazing invention! Have a water balloon fight and let your inner child out!

Outdoor Game Night

Bust out the board games and play them outdoors. If you have a projector, plug in the Nintendo and host game night outside! Enjoy the beautiful weather and have some fun!

S’mores Night

It doesn’t get any better than a s’mores night! Create a fun s’mores board, enjoy the great outdoors and great company.

At Home Car Wash

Need a car wash?! Have fun creating your own car wash at home! Grab some buckets, soap and a hose and go to town! If you are feeling super adventurous, grab that vacuum and detail the interior!

Host A BBQ Cook Off

Invite a some friends over and hose a bbq cook off! Have everyone bring a fun side, or different meats for everyone to taste test!

Water Gun Fight

Need to get some aggression out?! Just kidding…but really though… a water gun fight could be therapeutic! haha Grab some water guns, invite some friends over and have a water gun fight! BRING IT ON!

Try A New Recipe & Make Dinner Together

Has there been a new meal or dessert you have been wanting to try? Buy all the ingredients and have a fun time cooking together, then enjoy a romantic meal afterwards.

Make Candles

We recently made candles and had so much fun we ended up buying additional supplies to make more. There are candle kits out there for around $30-$50 that come with everything you need. This is a fun and simple way to be creative together and have fun!

    We always love all of your date thoughts and it was extraordinary to see them again and a portion of the ones we have missed beforehand. We have attempted a few them and cant hold on to in any case evaluate more. They are such a lot of fun and we suggest that all couples should give them a shot , as they are so special and not quite the same as the ordinary.
