19 super special and romantic anniversary date ideas

When it’s (a) your own birthday or (b) someone special’s birthday, celebrations are absolutely in order. That’s why it’s absolutely essential to plan the perfect anniversary date so that you and your partner don’t end up falling asleep on the couch and completely forgetting about the day. But if you’re short on birthday inspiration or need something new to explore, we’ve got you covered.

First, you need to ask yourself a few questions if you’re planning your partner’s birthday: How much money do you want to spend on the celebrations? Would they prefer an intimate evening at home or a dressed-up occasion? Would they like to do something new or stick with something more traditional?

And most importantly, how old are they? Because planning a birthday date for an 18 year old is completely different than planning an evening with someone who is 30 years old.

Now, depending on your answers to these questions, you can take a look at our birthday date ideas below and choose one or more. Just know that you can’t really go wrong if you put some effort and love into the planning.

To end the evening well, be sure to buy the best birthday gifts for them and wear the best birthday outfits. Enjoy!

1. Go to your special restaurant

Every couple has one: the restaurant where they first met, the restaurant that has some sort of special meaning, etc. If you’re looking to keep it low-key, this is an easy and obvious choice. Nothing beats enjoying another year eating a meal you know will be good while being somewhere familiar – perfect for birthday girls who just want a quiet night’s sleep.

2. Take a tour of the different museums

What could be more relaxing than spending the rest of your afternoon surrounded by stunning works of art that you have never seen before? Take advantage of the calm of a museum by walking hand in hand between each room. Then repeat for the next one. This is specifically for the history buff in your life.

3. Go camping

On the opposite end of the spectrum, take your partner camping if that’s something they like to do. You don’t have to stay there for multiple nights, a one night stay will suffice. But make sure you pick a safe place and pack the marshmallows for the s’mores because duh.

4. Go glamping

If they hate sleeping on the floor and fending for themselves, glamping is the best thing to do. There are several Airbnbs that offer this amazing and luxurious experience. All you need to do is pack your clothes, toiletries, food, and some entertainment, and you’ll be good to go.

5. Have a picnic and wine tasting in the park

Whether you pack the basket yourself or buy it from a restaurant, be sure to get things they love, like their favorite cheese, wine, and desserts.

6. Go on a day trip in a luxury car

Nothing says happy birthday more than renting a super fancy car that you know you can’t actually afford. Visit the nearest town on your to-do list, stroll around town, eat at the best family-run shops, and don’t forget to bring home a souvenir.

7. Check out your city’s food truck scene

Instead of going to a stuffy restaurant, spice it up by heading to a food truck yard and trying a bit of everything. It’ll probably be cheaper and you’ll try things you wouldn’t otherwise.

8. Spend the day at a winery

It’s the perfect excuse to go drinking for a day, take the day off, and enjoy the open skies with a little buzz.

9. Do something wild like a helicopter ride, bungee jumping or skydiving

If your partner is Mr. or Mrs. Spontaneous, offer him something that will get his adrenaline pumping. And if you’re in a city that doesn’t offer these experiences, you can opt for a helicopter ride or a short plane ride to a nearby island.

10. Buy tickets to their favorite team’s game

Beer, baseball and hot dogs, what better way to spend a relaxing birthday? But if your partner prefers something much livelier, treat them to a game of basketball or hockey instead.

11. Go to your local amusement park

Nothing will bring out their inner child like eating cotton candy and riding roller coasters all afternoon.

12. Go hiking

For another outdoor idea, plan a fun hike. You can either choose one of their favorite trails or head out of state to try a new one. Be sure to pack accordingly and pack a picnic once you reach your destination.

13. Feast on your favorite movies and order takeout

Let’s be honest, sometimes birthdays aren’t a person’s favorite thing. If you still want to make it special without the fuss, treat them to their favorite movie at home while ordering from your favorite restaurant. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy Chinese food and Harry Potter by turning 28?

14. Create a Time Capsule

If you’re the sentimental, do-it-yourself type, spend their birthday building a time capsule, especially if you’re a more seasoned couple on the road to the altar. Write letters to yourself, print photos of your most memorable moments and hide them in the back of your closet or bury them in your garden.

15. Take a race together, then go out for a sweet treat

If you’re one of the group of people who like to spend Thanksgiving running around, this one’s for you. Spend a Saturday or Sunday running a 5K or 10K together, then treat yourself to some well-deserved treats and treats.

16. Go to an escape room

I’ve only been to an escape room once, but let me tell you, it brought out a whole level of competitiveness that I didn’t know I possessed. If you and your partner enjoy working together to solve puzzles, this could be the perfect anniversary date.

17. Go to their favorite band’s concert

Or if they’re into all music, head to a local jazz bar or check to see if your town has live music.

18. Make a to-do list and plan your next outing.

Start planning your next adventure together by thinking about your couple’s wish list. Want to take an international trip together? Or how about adopting a senior dog from your local shelter? Spend time together planning your next steps.

19. Take a pizza tour around town

Get a slice of each of the famous pizzerias in your town and rank them on a scale of 1-10. You’re basically playing sexy food critics, and something tells me this could be a lot of fun for later in the bedroom. .
