6 SUMMER DATE IDEAS

9:52 PM

January and February are literally my favourite months… It totally has everything to do with the fact that February is my birthday month & January is when summer in South Africa usually gets her act together & starts chilling out. To celebrate the summer season, I’m sharing some of my favourite summer date ideas, especially for university students.



PACK A PICNIC.

Picnics are probably the go-to ultimate summer date idea, because let’s be honest - there’s nothing like dining al fresco in a park. Paired with summer fruits like watermelon & strawberries, throw in some cute sandwiches and finger foods and you’re A for Away!

TAKE A HIKE.

But like, a real hike. I was so surprised to find so many short hiking trails in my city, that I’m more than excited to try out with some friends. You can combine this with a picnic, or even a beach day if you find a beach hike!

VISIT A MARKET/FARMSTALL.

I love farmer’s markets and believe in supporting local! Spend a Saturday morning wandering around the market, picking locally grown fruit + vegetables, and sampling homemade baked goods! Bonus idea: have a cooking challenge with the fruit + veg you picked up!

LEARN TO SURF.

This summer, for 15bex02, has been all about trying new things and revisiting things I’d tried and loved. Surfing is something I tried and loved - and doing it with bae would be even more fun! Take a surf class together, or rent some boards and laugh at each other. Both sound like fun!

WATCH THE SUNSET.

Summer days are much longer, making it easier to catch the sun going down. This is the perfect after-work date alternative to staying in and watching Netflix again… Make an evening of it - take a bottle of wine, some snacks and a blanket to sit on. I love watching the sunset from the beach or a bluff.

GRAB AN ICED TREAT.

My favourite thing about summer is that anything and everything outside is guaranteed to be fun. Grab some ice cream or iced coffee and go for a romantic stroll.


I’d love to know, what’s your dream summer date? ☀️
