10 Unique, creative and exciting date ideas to splurge on
We all deserve a little luxury once in a while and what better way could there be to show how much you love your partner by splashing out some cash on a surprise date. We’re not talking going large at McDonalds here! Here are some, once in a lifetime, really special dates that are made to remember.
1. A helicopter ride
Take in a bird’s eye view of the city or town where you live and take the sky in a private helicopter ride. Hiring a chopper, all to yourself, is far from cheap, but it’s certainly a date that you will both remember.
2. Hire a private box at a concert
If you a romantic evening with a bit of culture, you could try a night at the opera, in your very own private box. Dress ion your finest gown and get your man in his tuxedo and take in the beauty and sophistication of the event together.
3. Go skiing for the weekend
Book into an exclusive ski resort and hit the slopes together. There’s always snow somewhere in the world, all year round. So, pack your bags, book your flight and enjoy a romantic weekend in the mountains.
4. Share a spa experience
The luxury spa experience is not the sole preserve of women, men can enjoy it too. Many top spas offer couples weekends, so book ourselves in and enjoy being pampered with massages, Jacuzzi and private pools or just relaxing, at the end of the day, together at the bar.
5. A weekend in Paris
Paris is the romance capital of the world and has something for every type of couple to enjoy. Take lunch at the top of the Eifel Tower, take a look at the Mona Lisa at the Louvre and then stroll down the Champs Elysees, as the sun sets over Paris. It’s the perfect romantic break for two.
6. Hire a private yacht
Wherever there is water you can find a yacht to hire. Take an evening cruise around the harbour or hire a yacht for the weekend. You can hire them fully crewed and with all the food and drink included you will need for a romantic dinner on the waves.
7. Scuba diving
Explore the deep blue sea together and discover a whole new world beneath the waves. It’s an experience in itself, but when it’s shared with someone you love, it is an extra special adventure to treasure.
8. Fine dining
Book a table at an exclusive restaurant and enjoy a taste of the finer life. If you really want to push the boat out, look for Michelin star restaurants in your area and make it really special by hiring a limousine to pick you up and drop you off at the door. You could be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, so it will certainly be a night to remember.
9. Rent a private island
For real luxury and tranquillity, why not rent your own island for a weekend away? You will need pretty deep pockets though, a night for two on Necker Island, which is located in the Virgin Islands, it will set you back a cool $58,000! But, it will certainly be memorable.
10. Go shopping
Not every guy’s idea of a romantic break, but a shopping trip to the more swanky shopping destinations will light up the eyes of most Shopaholics. Make it really special and book a weekend in London, Paris or even Dubai then you can shop till you drop and spend the evening in in a top class restaurant, and the night in a five star hotel.
