7 Sweet & Spicy Autumn Date Night Ideas

*I’m away on a retreat this weekend so I haven’t completed the next part of My Spouse IS NOT An Idol series to my satisfaction. I’m reposting some of these date night ideas from last November. See the original post here

1. Fall Foliage Viewing

Going for a drive to enjoy autumn foliage is a classic date. Go somewhere you’ll see lots of fall hues – red, gold, orange, and yellow. Pack a scarf, a picnic lunch, and the camera. Enjoy taking in God’s creation.

2. Rake Fall Leaves

Make a morning or afternoon of raking up autumn leaves together. Jump in a pile or two, chase each other around the yard and stuff leaves down each other’s shirts, and play wrestle in the leaves.

3. Take an Autumn Walk

The sounds of crunching leaves set the stage for romance as you walk hand in hand and arm in arm, enjoying sweet conversation.

4. Hayride

Find a local ranch or farm that offers late autumn hay rides that follow a scenic route (and if it’s in the moonlight, even better!). If you can find one that offers something extra like hot cocoa or apple cider, go for it! Snuggle up close to your honey with a blanket.

5. Get lost in a corn maze.

Hold each other’s hand and work your way through a corn maze… or blaze your own trail ;o)

6. Shop for holiday gifts together. 

Yes Christmas is over a month away, but get a jump start on gift shopping. If you’re together, you can help each other out, and you’ll be able to resist the temptation of over-spending more if you’re together. When you’re done, wrap gifts together. Here’s a steamy idea… cover yourself with bows and nothing else and invite him to join you in the bedroom to “unwrap his gift.”

7. Stargaze. 

Dress warm, drive out to a secluded spot (or find a private spot on your own property), and watch the moon rise together in each other’s arms. Bring a bottle of bubbly or a thermos of hot cocoa. Lay out a blanket and some pillows Pick out autumn constellations. Make love under the stars.
