The crisp air, warm apple cider, and beautifully colored leaves make fall the perfect season to spend quality time with your partner. With so many fun activities you and your significant other can enjoy together, it can be difficult to know where to start. Check out these cute and cozy autumn date ideas you’ll love; you may even start some new seasonal traditions.
Is there anything cozier on a chilly fall night than sitting around a blazing bonfire? This autumn date idea doesn’t require a lot of planning, but it’s a perfect opportunity to spend uninterrupted time with your favorite person. Once you set up the bonfire, it’s time to snuggle under some plush blankets and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the crackling fire.
To make your bonfire even more special, be sure to have s’mores supplies on hand. After all, nothing says true love quite like melted chocolate and marshmallows sandwiched between two graham crackers.
A bonfire is also a great opportunity to have a period of distraction-free conversation with your date. Make a pact to turn your cell phones off to ensure you and your partner can fully enjoy each other’s company.
Adorable Apple Orchard
Apples are in season during the earliest months of fall; you and your date can plan a trip to a local apple orchard. Research orchards in your area that will allow you to pick your own bushel and plan to visit on a weekday to avoid crowds. Be sure to check the weather before you head out because you don’t want rain to put a damper on your day.
Once you’ve picked your bounty, it’s time to head home and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Work together to bake an apple pie, apple cider donuts, apple cinnamon muffins, or any other apple-themed treat you love.
If you and your partner aren’t crazy about apples, pears and pumpkins are also in season during the fall months, and both make for seriously delicious pies. You can easily visit a pumpkin patch or a local farmer’s market to collect your desired ingredients.
Another cute and cozy autumn date idea you’ll love is a romantic homemade dinner. If you and your partner love to cook, you can work together to prepare the meal. Bonus points if you prepare a fall-themed menu with in-season ingredients! If only one partner enjoys being in the kitchen, the other can work on setting a beautiful table and creating an inviting ambiance.
One of the best parts about this date idea is that you can make your night special without leaving the house. After you’ve devoured your delicious meal, head to the sofa, snuggle under some warm blankets, and watch your favorite spooky movie together.
