Autumn is one of the most romantic times to fall in love. The leaves are a beautiful hue, the air is crisp, and the temps are perfect for cuddling with your partner. It’s the perfect time of year to go on one-of-a-kind dates. There’s just something about the changing leaves, the crisp weather, and the cozy feel of the season that makes everyone want to find love and get cuffed up for the fast-approaching holidays. If you’re one of the lucky ones who was able to find a special someone and want to take your relationship to the next level, look beyond the typical dinner and movie dates.
Fall gives you so many opportunities to go out and do something different and fun during the next couple months. So take advantage of everything autumn in New Jersey has to offer and start making fun and exciting plans now.
Today, New Jersey Singles reveals our three favorite autumn date ideas for couples—seasoned or new.
1. Pumpkin Picking
Pumping picking is a classic autumn date idea. You and your significant other can take a romantic drive out to a farm or pumpkin patch and have a little competition to see who can pick the perfect pumpkin. Best of all, this gives you the perfect opportunity to set up another date in the near future. Your pumpkin picking date can transform into a pumpkin carving and pumpkin pie making date.
Want to know our favorite part of this fabulous fall date idea? That it doesn’t have to end at the pumpkin patch. Make plans to take your pumpkins back to your place, spread some newspaper on the porch or backyard and get carving. Even if you’re not the artsy type, the two of you are sure to come up with some cute jack-o-lanterns to take pictures of and put on your social media. Get creative and have fun. Sure, it will be a little messy, but it will be a fun date.
2. Spice Things Up in the Kitchen
There’s something about fall that makes everyone want to bake and pull out delicious spices and ingredients. Maybe it’s because fall is all about indulging, whether it’s with candies or Thanksgiving turkey. Or maybe the smell of pumpkin spice and apple cider in every grocery store makes us want to try a little baking at home. Either way, baking together is a great date idea. Invite them over for a fun afternoon of baking—and eating, of course!
You can both look at recipes online or choose one you’ve done before. Then you can raid the grocery store and cabinets to get ready for this date.
Next comes the fun part. Stirring everything together, making the dough, and throwing flour on each other just like in the movies. The best way to get to anyone’s heart is through the stomach, especially around Thanksgiving. So when you’re chowing down on those delicious pumpkin cookies and pies, you’ll both be smitten.
3. Plan Your Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving dinner with your family is always a fun celebration, but having your own “Friendsgiving” party with your closest friends can also be a lot of fun. But what if you want to make this holiday a little more romantic with your new partner? Since this is a new relationship, you might want to pick a night before Thanksgiving. The two of you can pick up exactly what you want to eat. No relatives can force their cranberry sauce on you again!
Go shopping for the ingredients together, then you can work in the kitchen again to prepare the feast. Cooking up a thanksgiving meal together is definitely more work than baking cookies and pies, but the end result will be worth it. You guys can even dress up for the evening. You can also set the table to make it a little more romantic. Break out your nicest plates and silverware and add some soft lighting with seasonal candles to set the mood. Trust us, this will be a night to remember.
Autumn is the most romantic time of the year. From sweet to adventurous, there’s something for everyone to try together. Grab your partner and start enjoying the beautiful fall in New Jersey because before you know it winter will be here.
