In our opinion, having spontaneous dates is so important for couples. It is so easy to get wrapped up in everyday life so effort needs to be shown not just when it’s date night. We all love a spontaneous moment no matter where or what it is. It could be anything from your partner waking up early to make you breakfast in bed or getting told that you’re going on holiday somewhere.

The best thing about this is the fact it makes your other half feel so special and wanted. This is very important in a relationship especially with how busy you can be just trying to live life. Having to work and deal with day-to-day stress can make it hard for people to remember that it really is the small things in life that can make a difference. After all you only get one life so you may as well enjoy it and make sure that your loved ones know and feel the way they deserve.

Hot chocolates on our fake Christmas day!

Don’t ever be scared to do something out of your comfort zones with each other. It is always a good experience to do something new and exciting, if you decide it wasn’t for you, you’ll at least have a good story. You’ll be able to say you try different things instead of doing the same thing everyday and go to the same place on every date.

As an example, we knew that for Christmas we would be travelling between our families so we decided to have our own at home fake Christmas Day (in November). We got some eggnog on the go, made cheesecake, hot chocolates, a roast dinner & watched tons of Christmas movies. Don’t get us wrong, having the same interests can mean you do one thing more than others. For example we love going out to see new movies but it is always good to change it up and see what else is out there for the both of you.

You can make your partner feel important in so many different ways. By having that spontaneous side, it can show how much you care for them. Putting in some effort goes a long way! If you’re having a hard time thinking of things to do then don’t worry about it we’ve got you! You could always give our very own Plain2Plane Date Jar! We swear by it as it has so many date ideas and things to do at home. For couples, this is one sure fire way to make sure that all your dates are spontaneous and randomised. We know it will keep you on your toes and keep that spark going.


Breakfast in bed is something small and easily done. It can be spontaneous and also remind your partner how important they are to you. It will definitely win you some brownie points!

Go for a walk without a chosen destination and see where you end up. We often end up taking it in turns to pick right or left and see where we find ourselves.

Find something new to try such as ice skating, kayaking or hiking.
