Firstly if you haven’t already then I suggest you go check out my Spooky themed/October Bucket-List, because it has all the things I want to do this year (within reason and guidelines). I feel like I need something that will cheer me up from the crazy unexpected year we have all had.
I think this year is even harder to have date night’s as it is, and I am not sure whether a lot of places will have spooky events on. Therefore, it’s going to all be down to creativity and thinking outside the box. However, I do want to include some ideas for when we can have date nights elsewhere.
Spooky themed date night ideas!
Now I did actually write a post on date nights during this season last year, “Spooky date nights”. However, considering the circumstances this year I feel like I have some further ideas I can contribute.
Horror movie night
I think one of the most obvious is to grab the snacks, grab your duvet and some pillows, turn the lights off and just have a horror movie marathon. Plus if you are stuck for ideas then I have the perfect list for you in my previous post, full of Halloween movies for the horror fanatics (like myself) and some family friendly ones.
It doesn’t have to be horror related you can also just have a Halloween family friendly movie night too for all those that are not fans of all the gore and scariness that comes with a horror movie.
Halloween themed Cocktail night
Something a little bit different but fun could be to create your own Halloween themed cocktail night. Not only would this be a fun date, but you can play those Halloween tunes have a boogie (does anyone even use that word anymore?) and experiment by making your own cocktails.
There are more than enough recipes online or on Pinterest that you can experiment with. Or if you know your stuff then you can come up with your own recipes and give them names of all the horror movie characters. I mean may as well get those creative juices flowing.
I definitely will be suggesting this to Ryan and hopefully he will have a horror themed cocktail date night with me, otherwise it’s 2:1 cocktails for one quite literally.
Halloween game night
Now if you are into games then maybe this is the one for you. Basically if you have a PS4 or XBOX then download some horror or scary games and have a games date night.
I think games nights can be so much fun and especially with a partner as well. But those horror games out there can be so jumpy. I actually tried this horror game on VR and nearly cried (and I like all things horror).
I am not sure if there are any Halloween themed board games, but if there is then you could use host a games date night with your partner and I think that would be just as fun.
I have actually booked onto one of these in London this year, however of course with everything going on it is just a waiting game to see if it will still go ahead.
Basically these could be a good date night idea for Halloween. I mean what is better than learning a bit about history, maybe getting a little bit scared and just having fun. I mean you are with your other half so any excuse to hold their hand or snuggle up if you want to.
Halloween Quiz night
I am aware that the majority of people are probably fed up of “quizzes” since they kind of took over during lockdown on Zoom for many. However, I am still all for them because I love a good quiz me. I might not be the best at them, but they are just fun.
If you are both horror fans then maybe you could create (or ask someone to create for you) a quiz dedicated to horror movies. In addition, you could create a quiz on any crime documentaries you watch/listen too or series on Netflix. You name it you can have fun and get creating.
Plus you could also make it a bit more exciting and add your own quiz rules, make it more spooky or even add drinks in for any questions you get wrong.
Do you have any date night ideas for the spooky season?
Spooky themed date night ideas!
These are just some date night ideas and I am sure there are many more out there for you to gain some inspiration from!
I am more into Halloween and Spooky season than Ryan, however I think because he has been around me for so long now he is slowly getting more into it. Therefore, I believe he will be happy with any of the suggestions for Spooky date nights that I have mentioned within this post for us to do. Of course I will be doing all of them, even if the cocktail making doesn’t entirely go to plan.
Thanks for reading,
