Time for a last-minute date night! Not sure if you want to stay in or go out? With this date night, you get the best of both worlds! Almost the entire date night takes place in the car, so you can get out of the house without going anywhere with lines or crowds. Check it out!


  • A packed picnic (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks, Dessert… It’s totally up to you!)
  • A blindfold
  • A full tank of gas (unless you want a good story for later!)
  • A sense of direction (optional)


This date night is super simple in concept, but you can make it as fun as you want! Here’s how it works.

  1. Pack a picnic together! This can be as simple or intricate as you would like it to be. Charcuterie board? Go for it. Pick up some snacks and fun drinks on your way? That’s totally fine. Just be sure to grab some pillows and blankets, too!
  2. Choose who will be the driver first. The other person puts the blindfold on!
  3. The driver gets to choose the destination, but don’t tell your partner!
  4. Drive to the chosen destination (you might want to take a different route than normal).
  5. The blindfolded person then has to guess where you ended up! 
    • If they get it right, take your picnic and have your date night at that spot.
    • If they get it wrong, switch places! The person that was blindfolded gets to choose the next destination, and the previous driver has to be blindfolded and guess where you end up.
  6. Keep going until one of you guesses the right location! Then pull out that picnic and enjoy the evening together.
  7. Use the conversation starters below to turn this date night into a memory to last forever!
