Date night is a wonderful way to nurture your relationship with your significant other. Dedicating quality time to spend together can be something to look forward to during the busy work week, a chance to slow down, enjoy each other's company and help you feel that much closer. Coming up with fresh, creative things to do together keeps things exciting; here are some classic romantic activities as well as some outside-the-box ideas for your next date night and the perfect hampers to accompany a special time.
With the weather warming up and the sun peeking through the spring clouds, it's time to shake off those woolly socks and get back outside. A beautiful bush walk followed by an intimate picnic is a great way to appreciate each other and the natural world at the same time. Cosy up together in the fresh air and soak up your surroundings. Settling in at your local beach under the stars is super romantic if you are on the coast. All you need is a comfortable rug to sit on, some cushions and an array of delicious food and drink. Our Wine and Dine Gift Hamper is the perfect lightweight collection of savoury and sweet treats to surprise your partner with. Nibble on some gourmet Falwasser cracker, then share some chocolate Byron Bay cookies whilst cheering with an aromatic glass of Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon.
You can’t beat a night in, especially if you are out at the office daily; a little bit of home time can be a nice comfort for date night. Why not cook up your partner's favourite food, or try a seasonal recipe you can prepare together? We love this light and zingy dish - asparagus, pecorino and lemon risotto. It is easy to make but looks impressive to plate up; it uses only a handful of ingredients that can be adapted to your tastes (or what's in the cupboard!) Accompany your dinner with a glass of Wolf Blass Chardonnay from our Bubbles & Bites Hamper, with clean, citrus notes this will pair perfectly with your meal. You can then enjoy the sweet selection of treats for dessert, including chocolate-covered macadamias and buttery shortbread biscuits - bon appetit.
Another fun at-home activity is a well-deserved pamper session! Create a spa-like experience with our I Love You This Much Hamper - the name says it all! Spoil your loved one with this luxury selection of beauty products and relaxation essentials. Light the Byron Bay candle to set the mood, warm up a foot soak, and indulge in the silky massage oil whilst nurturing your skin with the green tea clay mask. A bit of zen is best when shared; date night is the ideal time to press re-set together.
If you and your partner are early birds, organise a once-in-a-lifetime sunrise hot air balloon excursion! This is something everyone should do at least once and is the opportunity to get an incredible panoramic view - a magical way to start the morning. Bring your own caffeine with our Tea & Coffee Gift Basket, including a delightful range for all your hot or cold beverage needs, a lovely surprise to enjoy when you land. Hot air ballooning is also perfect for those significant dates on the calendar, an anniversary, birthday or even a proposal! Book a private tour for an unforgettable experience and celebrate your relationship with our Champagne Gift Hamper - cheers to love.
