I had multiple bridal showers before getting married and at each one there was a date night jar for people to write ideas on a popsicle stick and put in the jar! We want to share with you all the suggestions we were given!

The Popsicle Sticks

  • Go climbing
  • Go mini golfing
  • People watch at the mall
  • Go to a fancy restaurant
  • Take a picnic to a park
  • Call Britney & Trevor 🙂
  • Glow in the dark golf at the Great Salt Lake! Get cheap golf balls and glow sticks and a golf club. Go to the Salt Palace and walk to the water front. Break open glow sticks and cover the balls. Watch your glow in the dark ball soar through the night sky.
  • Marshmallow gun war in the park
  • Haunted House
  • Walk around the temple grounds at Christmas
  • Bowling
  • Go to a festival: arts, greek, jazz etc.
  • Chalk portrait contest
  • Star gazing
  • Taco Bell… duh
  • Go to a bookstore and each pick a book you are interested in (separately). Then meet back together and look through your book picks together.
  • Scenic chairlift
  • Create a music video
  • Couples massage
  • Go to a movie
  • Progressive Dinner Date: put a ton of food joints in a hat and pick one out for every course of the meal (appetizer, main, drink, dessert)
  • Use a gift card to buy each other a present (go to the store and shop without seeing each other)
  • Find a free event in town and go check it out (Facebook events near me, meet up, etc.)
  • A night at the temple is always sweet and cheap!
  • Indoor camping: set up a tent/make a fort, watch a fire YouTube video while you roast mini marshmallows over a candle
  • Offer to walk someone’s dogs, even if you don’t know them!
  • Naked cereal party! Eat cereal naked in bed and watch a funny movie.
  • Go to DI and pick out an outfit for each other, then go out to dinner
  • Night Boarding
  • U of U football game
  • Hires Big H for dinner
  • Ice skating
  • Hike to Timpanogas Cave
  • Attend “Savior of the World” in SLC then walk around and look at the lights @ temple square
  • Do yoga together, then try partner yoga
  • Day trip to a National Park
  • Stand up paddle boarding in the Tetons
  • Dinner @ Taggarts up Weber Canyon
  • Salsa dance lessons
  • Glow in the dark mini golf
  • Moonlight ski lift ride
  • Karaoke night
  • Netflix & Chill
  • Go hiking and make a fire for s’mores
  • Brewvies
  • Sunset/sunrise hike
  • Nickelcade
  • Go for a picnic up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Pack fancy foods like breads, cheeses, and grapes. Lay out a blanket and cuddle after.
  • Group date: Set a budget, each couple buys ingredients for appetizer, main dish & dessert. Switch ingredients with another couple. Set time limit and have a cook off! Come back together and eat.
  • Group Date: Game night — everyone bring a game to teach
  • Group Date: Play Body Body… then just hide and mac in the dark and never get killed!

Hopefully you can find something off this list that interests you! We’d love to hear more suggestions to add to our jar!
