Jean and I make a point of having a date night once a month (at least). Whether that means we go for dinner, see a movie, or snuggle in bed while binge-watching a new series on Netflix – a date is a date, and it’s always amazing spending quality time together after a long week.
If you are looking for something special to do with the one you love, but are stumped for an idea you think they will like, here is my list of three things I would like to do and have done with my girlfriend:
DateFactory provides couples with a large selection of boxes containing mystery items that aim to help those couples who are stuck in a rut, don’t have enough time to spoil each other, or simply lack creativity, have the perfect date night without the stress if having to plan it from scratch.
Taking the hassle out of planning your own date, DateFactory releases a number of new boxes with different theme every month, continuously expanding their options while keeping the dates both creative and original.
Although the contents of each box is not disclosed (who doesn’t like a surprise after all?), couples are guaranteed to get ‘something good, something food and something for the mood’ in every box! (The only thing that will not be included are any perishables).
Jean found this idea, and said that we should order one of the DateFactory boxes and enjoy a picnic on our lawn in summer, and I couldn’t think of anything more perfect! Although I am sure there are many other venues you can enjoy this treat box.
We have not tried this out yet but if you have, please let us know about your experience in the comment section below!
Taking luxury viewing to a whole new level, Ster Kinekor Cine Prestige at Cavendish Square is quite possibly the most amazing theatre I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
Think large-than-life, lazyboy leather chairs that recline, an in-seat service where you can order food before your movie starts (you can choose from a number of delicious platters and beverages), and access to an exclusive VIP lounge where Prestige ticket holders can relax before their movie starts, it really is a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience!
Enjoy the lap of luxury with the one you love, snack on delicious eats and kick-back – literally – while indulging in one of the latest blockbusters.
I am a big foodie, big, so Jean knows that taking me out for a good meal is a winner every time. My favourite date night food is either pizza or a really good burger, and when I tell Jean it’s time for burger date night, she knows exactly where I want to go!
The best burger joint in Cape Town – in my opinion – is Woodies. Situated at Market on the Wharf at the V&A Waterfront, Woodies offers up a short but delicious menu of burgers, with an option for every taste.
My personal favourite is their TCC, loaded with mozzarella, cheddar, lettuce, onions, tomato and gherkins. Jean’s favourite on the other hand is The Tropicana, and is loaded with chargrilled pineapple, mozzarella, cheddar, lettuce, onions, tomato and gherkins – yum!
Date nights are increasingly important in this day and age, as they give you the opportunity to spend quality time with the love of your life – away from technological devices and the stresses from our daily lives.
Don’t keep putting off this precious time together, once you start spending these dedicated nights in each other’s company you will not only feel closer to each other, but your relationship and the love you have for each will strengthen and grow!
Do you have a regular date night? If so, what do you and your partner do together? I would love to know!
