Friend Date Ideas other than dinner

Throughout the week I love spending time catching up with friends but it seems that every time we plan to get together the only activity that we can think of to do is meet up for dinner and drinks. I have been on the hunt to find different activities to do together. Don’t get me wrong grabbing dinner and trying a new restaurant is always a good time too but here are a few others ideas that I am excited to try for my next girl date:

  1. Browse a boutique or store. Browse the aisles, pick up trinkets and books, read each other lines, and recommend your favorites. Shopping is always enjoyable!
  2. Take a walk around the neighborhood. We like to call these “mom walks”,  power walking around the neighborhood while chatting goes by super quick.
  3. Bake together. My friend Kalyn and I once tried making an apple pie together and that didn’t turn out so well. Maybe next time we will bake brownies out of a box so we can’t mess them up.
  4. Head to Ulta or Sephora and give each other a makeover!
  5. Run errands together. This kind of thing always feels surprisingly intimate and entertaining, who doesn’t love doing a Target run with your bestie?
  6. See a comedy show.
  7. Start a two-person book club.
  8. Get moving. Take an exercise class together, ride bikes, makeup your own workout or have a dance party.
  9. Host a sleepover. Read magazines, order pizza and stay up late talking.
  10. Take a day trip, like going apple picking or to the beach
  11. Pick a TV and watch together every week. If you’re not in the same place, watch separately and text throughout!
