Falling in love is easy in the fall. With crisp temperatures to encourage the best cuddles to outdoor adventures that light a spark, autumn is full of opportunities for a great date. Keep reading for our favorite date ideas for you and your pumpkin!

Hayrides, pumpkin picking, fresh apple cider, and your boo?! There’s nothing more “fall” than heading to a local festival with all the tried-and-true sweater weather activities. Depending on where you are in your relationship, a fall festival is the perfect no-pressure situation. It’s filled with plenty on the agenda to keep the conversation flowing and even more opportunities for a cute cuddle. Don’t forget the obligatory flannels and Instagram caption declaring your date “the pick of the patch.”

This one might take some more additional planning than your standard date. For a more elevated time, rent a romantic cabin in the great outdoors! Spend the day hiking. When the sun goes down, heat things up with a sensual massage a la Heart Massager. While we would usually suggest throwing in a scary movie, don’t pick one set in a cabin in the woods!

One of the reasons this season is so great is the endless options of seasonal ingredients. In fact, did you know that many of your favorite fall foods are aphrodisiacs? According to one study, pumpkin pie was found to increase penile blood flow by an average of 40% in participants! Cinnamon, apples, and hot chocolate are also aphrodisiacs. Before you make your grocery list, avoid these anti-aphrodisiacs!

This season isn’t complete without all the scary, sinister, and downright spooky activities that somehow turn fright into flirtation. Whether it’s a horror flick, a haunted house, or getting decked out for a Halloween party, participating in spooky season is a relationship rite of passage. Just imagine all the opportunities there are to hold each other tight when things go bump in the night!

A more budget friendly alternative to renting a cabin, camping under the stars in the backyard is full of playful possibilities. Build a campfire, snuggle your loved one, roast marshmallows, discover constellations (try this stargazing app!), and learn new things about each other! Our Hot Date Night Card Game is the perfect way to ask questions and make suggestions to turn up the heat for a night under the stars.

No matter what you do this fall, make sure you’re spending time with your partner and letting them know how much they mean to you. Before you know it, snow will be falling and you’ll be preparing for the holidays!
