Take a look at our suggestions for some fun summer date ideas.
Have an outdoor (or indoor!) picnic
Spread a blanket out in your backyard and bring out the best of snacks in the great outdoors. Some fresh air will do you good during the summer season and keep you from staying stuffy inside. No backyard? No problem! You can just as well picnic indoors by spreading a blanket out in your living room and preparing fruits and sandwiches with your significant other. Crack open a window to let in the summer breeze!
Have a wine tasting/tequila tasting/any alcohol tasting night
Going out to bars and restaurants are so 2019. Have your own little party with some alcohol right at home. You and your hubby could buy a couple bottles of wine and taste test each of them, complete with a charcuterie board. Enjoy the buzz and try out other types of alcohol as well. The best part is that you don’t have to take a step outside — these alcohol delivery businesses will do the work for you.
Puzzles and scrapbooking and tiny home building

An indoor/outdoor movie
Make use of that backyard or empty lot and have a little movie night. All it takes is a couple lawn chairs, a projector, and an empty wall and you’ve got yourself your own personal cinema.
