Indulge in a Couple’s Massage

Need to relax and unwind? What better way than to do this together with your loved one! Book an hour or two at your local spa and indulge in a couple’s massage treatment after breakfast. There are numerous health and relationship benefits of doing this together, & it’s the perfect way to start your day.

Explore a Wine Estate

If you’d like to go on a day trip, pack up your car and drive to a nearby vineyard to savour some romantic wine tasting. Whether you’re deciding between South Africa’s Franschhoek wine estates or wineries in Australia’s Hunter Valley, you’re spoilt for choice. Paired with cheese, chocolate or a delicious lunch, this makes for a delectable daytime treat.

Take a Couple’s Art Class

Instead of taking a cooking class, how about something a little more creative? Apart from tapping into your inner creative, art classes are fun. You can both challenge each other to step out of your comfort zones as you create something together.

Studies have revealed how, like playing board games, art classes help bring couples closer. The love hormone, oxytocin, is released. Your relationship’s bond can only be strengthened through encouragement and interaction as you sit side by side & admire each other’s masterpieces. Perhaps you’ll even be each other’s source of inspiration!

Volunteer Together

Why not sign up for a local volunteering project for the day? Whether it’s a beach or park clean up, dog walking, playing with children at a local orphanage or serving soup in a nearby kitchen, you’ll both be amazed at how good it feels to help those in need.

While this is still an excellent way to spend time together doing something completely different, it also shows how you can selflessly serve in your community. This might even spur you both on to become involved more often within a local charity or organisation.

Make it to a Matinee Performance

See what’s showing at your local box office and surprise your loved one with a ticket to a matinee performance of the latest comedy, drama or musical. The best part? Matinee shows are cheaper! Plus, once the show’s over, the day’s not! You can still make the most of the daylight hours before heading off for a bite to eat.


There are dozens of other fun daytime date activities for you and your sweetheart to experience. Why not each write down a few ideas and store these pieces of paper in a glass jar? Then, each take a turn once a month to pick out something and you’ll have some wonderful weekend dates to look forward to!
