101 Mystery Date Ideas

101 Mystery Date Ideas

Dates for me and my husband have always been pre-planned. We’ve always planned a dinner at a certain restaurant or planned to see a certain movie at a certain time or planned to meet up with a group of friends at a certain bar.


Planned as you can be.

I’ve actually really never thought anything about the whole planned-date-night-routine until my friend Tammilee told me that her and her husband do Mystery Dates with each other. I thought this was amazing, we don’t do this and it’s something I’d love to add into our marriage fun! With 5 kids it’s not easy to always be on top of the romantic department, but mystery dates would be fun and easy to do! Since we’re starting from the beginning, we needed some ideas! 101 Mystery Date Ideas – is something we just kicked off and thought would be fun to add into our life.

And I literally thought it was the coolest idea ever.

101 Mystery Date Ideas

Mystery Dates – where each partner plans a date day or night without the other one knowing what they’re going to be doing. I love it. All that needs to be done is letting the partner know how he/she should be dressing for the occasion.

I started jotting down some ideas for me and Matt and had so much fun doing it because it really makes you think and want to put in some extra-special effort. I thought it would be fun to share 101 of my ideas and ask for YOU ALL to share some of your ideas, too!

Not that we’ll get to 101 dates this year, but – hey… it’s good to have options!
