Date night. It is so necessary whether you’re married or single, but it can be so blah.
Listen, I know being single and dating must suck sometimes, but being a parent dating your spouse? Date night is all well and good, but it’s not enough to just go out. You’ll eventually start talking about appointments, potty training, schedules, and the never-ending stream of decisions that seem both small and life-changing all at once. Now you just spent hours and tons of cash on a family meeting. Nope.
But we can do better. We can make it epic.
Instead, you need to find something to connect you, distract you from that everyday conversation, and help you reconnect. Whether it’s a thought-provoking movie, an art class where you both are learning something new, or an adventure you can find ways to make date night epic.
We partnered with Schick to share a great promo they’re offering (make sure you read all the way down) and provide a little help to get you started on your epic date night adventures.
5 ‘Make it Epic’ Date Night Ideas
Whether you’re a guy planning an epic adventure for your partner, or a woman inviting her date on an adventure we’ve got some great ideas to make your date night epic.
1. Epic Class:
This one is sure to be fun. Take your honey to a class to learn a new skill. Painting, ballroom dancing, improv, salsa, photography, cooking, and the list goes on and on! The options are as endless as your imagination.
2. Epic Adventure
this one is not for the faint of heart. Why not take your date on an adventure that they’d never expect. Skydiving, fly a plane, rock climbing, wake boarding, parasailing, rafting, and more await. Get outside and have some fun!
3. Epic Meal
There are a lot of ways to have an epic meal. Whether it’s finding the craziest burger on the menu (donut burger anyone?) to finding a local place that has you cook your meal before you eat there are so many options. Other ideas: gather a group of friends as a surprise for an epic meal, stop at different restaurants for each portion (appetizers at one, entree at another, followed by dessert at the best local place around), or even cook an epic meal at home with crazy ingredients you’ve always wanted to try (bacon wrapped burgers, anyone) with a side of Epic Meal Time on TV.
4. Epic Road Trip
Surprise your sweetheart with an epic adventure-a road trip! Find an off the beaten path place or somewhere you’ve never been before and head off for an adventure. You could rent a convertible for the ride, head out on a motorcycle, or even take your own wheels. Where you go is limitless! Head to a festival, hit crazy local landmarks (like a giant ball of yarn), or visit a nearby city for a fun and fast-paced trip.
5. Epic Movie Time
If you love movies, you could do an epic movie marathon! Maybe you make it epic by watching the latest action flick and then heading to a local martial arts studio for a fun training session, or maybe you could see ALL the latest releases in one night. However you make your movie going experience epic you can save big with Schick’s make it Epic promotion.

I love a good shave on my guy, so I picked up both the Schick hydro 5 for sensitive skin and its’ ‘brother from another mother’ the Schick xtreme 3 sensitive. My guy has sensitive skin and these are great for making sure he gets a clean shave without drying out his skin. The xtreme is disposable, so great for using on vacations or short trips.
