Best Easter Date Ideas for Easter 2024
So let’s get these Easter date ideas flowing. In no particular order, we have…
1) Eggs In Bed
It’s Easter! Could you really have any other breakfast in bed than EGGS?!
To turn this into an actual date-worthy event, take it in turns over the weekend… one of you cooks on the Saturday, the other cooks on the Sunday.
Think of it as like a bake-off egg-off, to see who can make the best egg.
The focus? Really spoiling your partner rotten and making it feel like a special treat! Get as creative as you can… go that extra mile!
Keeping with the Easter-themed foodie date ideas…
2) Easter Brunch
If early starts aren’t really your thing – why not go for a late-morning date idea of Easter brunch?
Head out to your favourite restaurant or – my recommendation – have fun cooking up a storm in the kitchen together! The best dates are all about quality time.
You can also make it more easter-themed by adding some cute decorations. Or by going for a traditional easter brunch recipe – like hot crossed buns. There’s plenty of different ones you can make too…
We’re talking custard-stuffed hot cross donuts, hot crossed bun caramel slice, surprise-inside chocolate hazelnut buns or even hot cross bun French toast.
Is your mouth watering right now too?!
3) Easter Egg Making
Okay so as you can imagine – we’re going to have lots of EGGY date ideas in this post. But before we get stuck in with the classics, I want to throw out the idea of making your own Easter eggs.
Uh huh. You can always count on us to throw in some date ideas that are original!
Making your own Easter eggs is actually pretty easy with a few moulds.
Here, have a go with this recipe! By the end of it, you won’t actually mind HOW it turns out, because the process will be just as enjoyable… plus memorable too!
4) Easter Egg Painting
Could we really talk about the best Easter date ideas without including Easter egg painting? I think NOT!
Get back to your youth by creating some wacky characters together – you could even try to turn each other into eggs.
That not your thing? Then go for more sophisticated decorative eggs using water paints. Here, check out these chic egg designs by Elle Decor.
Who’d have thought Easter egg painting could be so impressive?!
5) Easter Pinata
Bash away any Easter blues with this totally different, but insanely fun Easter Date Idea! All you need to do is get an Easter egg Pinata and a blindfold… and you’re good to go!
You can actually go one step further with this one however. So for example:
- Take it in turns to take your hits, but make it last longer, by each asking fun “Couples This Or That Questions” as you go.
- Ask the question, your partner then writes down their answer, you guess your partners answer and if you guess it right – you get to take a swing.
- Guess it wrong and it’s back to your partner.
- The person who manages to knock down the pinata first – wins, and gets all the treats inside!
You could also add your own treats and challenges into the pinata. Then lengthen it out even further that way. Get creative with it. That’s what it’s all about!
6) Traditional Easter Egg Hunt
Have you and your partner got each other some Easter eggs this year? Perfect, then take it in turns to hide the egg and do an Easter egg hunt. Indoors, outdoors, it does not matter!
If you’re trying to steer clear of chocolate and want to make your Easter egg hunt a little harder, try hiding normal eggs instead.
- Set a timer.
- Do “hot and cold” with your partner if you’re feeling generous.
- And do it as a competition to see who can find the most in a set length of time.
- You can also add “rewards” or “prizes for the winner 😉
7) “Adults” Easter Egg Hunt
If hunting around for chocolate (or raw) eggs doesn’t excite you enough, then have a go at some of these themed adults Easter egg hunts.
They work in exactly the same way, but instead, you look for different things inside. So for example, you might have:
- Plastic eggs filled with money to find!
- Plastic eggs with wine inside!
- Easter eggs with fun couples dares inside!
There’s really no end to the different ideas you can run with this one. So think outside the box. Don’t be afraid to come out of your “shell!” 😉
All you need to make it happen are these plastic eggs. Clever aren’t they? Then you can really let the creativity flow!
8) Easter Treasure Hunt
Going one step further than an Easter egg hunt, you may also like to create an Easter Treasure Hunt for a cute Easter date idea.
How this works? Well it’s still pretty simple. All you have to do is number your plastic eggs, hide clues in each one and these lead to one big master “prize” or Easter date finale!
You can also do this both ways – with one of you given one section of the house / garden to work with, the other has another.
It’s fun, different and yes, takes time and effort, but makes for a memorable Easter in the end!
9) Get Planting!
We’re storming through our Easter date ideas now, so it’s time to steer away from the eggs for a moment for a different date suggestion… planting some flowers together!
See, Easter symbolises rebirth, so what better day to plant some tulips or daffodils with your loved one?
I mean, fall is technically the season to plant bulbs in most regions, but you can plant them indoors anytime of year, or buy flowers already in bloom and transplant them outdoors on Easter. Clever huh?
10) Make Easter Cocktails
Cocktails are always a fun date idea – at any time of the year. So why not have a go at making some Easter themed ones?
From a floral Spring Fling to the carrot-peel, “Whats Up Doc”, an Easter egg Martini to the sweetest Tea-Party Punch, this post features my favourite Easter Cocktail Recipes.
Simply grab your own Cocktail Making Kit, and go wild with these at home! Talking of a tea party…
11) Have an Easter Picnic
Another cute Easter date idea that you can’t go wrong with is a themed Easter picnic! This is perfect if it falls on a day with nice weather. It’s pretty romantic too.
Simply stock up your picnic basket with themed Easter goodies – either shop bough our home made.
From Eggs in a Basket to Mini ‘Carrot’ Peppers Stuffed with Herb Cream Cheese, Healthy Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches to Whiskey Speckled Easter Donuts – there’s plenty to choose from!
Go all out to make it fun and unique. It’s guaranteed to then be a date day to remember, and is – unsurprisingly one of the most popular lunch date ideas at Easter time, for this reason!
12) Get Baking
What else have we got? Well, why not use this holiday as a chance to do some baking together? (Easter-themed of course!)
Pick a recipe, get yourselves all aproned up and have some fun in the kitchen. Work on a MASTERPIECE, go all out – then indulge together afterwards!
Here’s some classic Easter Baking Ideas to get the inspiration flowing. It’s a great way to get into the Easter spirit whilst doing something fun together.
13) Have an Egg & Spoon Race
Talking of fun Easter date ideas – get some sweaty headbands on, wipe lines across your face and go all out with some mighty egg and spoon races!
It’s a battle between the two of you, with again, “reward” incentives for the winner! Different round ideas include:
- Left handed (if you’re right handed)
- Two handed – eggs in both hands.
- In a circuit (make the trail trickier)
- And maybe even BLINDFOLDED.
A “judge” may be needed for the last one, or you can take it in turns to run the race with the other person timing you. If you do go for a timer option, you could mix up the races by adding “obstacles” like…
- Dodging pillows that get thrown at you.
- Your partner having a water pistol (spraying in the face is allowed!)
- Your partner trying to distract you… ANYTHING goes with this one.
Uh huh, it’s the perfect fun-filled Easter date idea. There’s nothing like a bit of creativity when it comes to date-days hey…
14) Make Mini Easter Chocolates
Now we spoke earlier about making your own Easter eggs, but another Easter date idea is to instead go down the homemade chocolate route – then filling them into little easter moulds. Aren’t they just adorable?!
Click here for how to make chocolate from cocoa beans. It’s a bit of a task, but what better time to take it on than during Easter – when chocolate is so heavily indulged in and appreciated?!
15) Melt Chocolate in a Fondue
Last but not least then, if you’re looking for cute Easter date ideas, then this one is really going to fit the bill!
In fact, it’s the perfect Easter date night idea that (if you’re not careful) will soon become an unbreakable tradition!
Simply put all your eggs and chocolate treats together and turn it into a romantic evening for two with a chocolate fondue! YUM.
Light candles, get the atmosphere just right, then break up the eggs, get them all melted and dip your favourite sweet treats into them. Strawberries, marshmallows, the lot!
Easter will never have felt more romantic… Watch out Valentines Day!
So there we have it! Our top fifteen favourite Easter date ideas for 2022 – filling you with things to do with your partner this Easter.
Have fun and remember – it’s all about the memories, and some of the strongest ones are actually made by the simplest things.
