date ideas from movies

Let's step out of the predictability and bring out our inner romantic with these date ideas!

Valentine's dates can be stressful; some work while some don’t. You’re constantly confused between just grabbing dinner and drinks or doing something larger than life. Here’s where movies and TV shows come in. You can look to some of your favorite content to draw inspiration for date ideas that are not the usual ones we always think of. Your date will, for sure, be one for the books that neither you nor your partner can forget. Love on-screen always looks more magical than it does IRL. So maybe with these date ideas you could also feel that movie-kinda love or just immaculate vibes of your favorite TV show.

Go back to where everything started - Modern Love

What could be better than going back to the place where everything started and reminiscing about the good old days? It’s a wholesome full circle moment, you fell in love there and on your anniversary or Valentine’s Day, you go back and look at how far you’ve come together. Think about the moment y’all first saw each other and how a relationship bloomed out of there!

Do cup chai and self made bread-jam cake date - Wake Up Sid

We face the pressure of making an extravagant gesture every time but it’s the little things that melt our hearts. Just the two of you at home, with two cups of tea, a cake that y’all made together, and some heart to heart conversations. In my opinion, nothing beats that!

A couple that works out together, stays together! Cycling while also getting to know each other is like the best combination you could ask for! Follow this up with a cute lunch date, and you have yourself a perfect date idea!
