It’s understandable if “romance” isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think about Halloween. Instead, the holiday conjures up ideas of terrifying movies or creepy Halloween décor for the vast majority of individuals, a date excluded. Nonetheless, it’s still a popular holiday among many, and a good excuse to schedule a date night or two with a special someone.
We’ve put together a list of the top Halloween date ideas in the hopes of inspiring you to cross things off your October bucket list as a couple. You’ll find lots of suitable ideas here, whether you prefer the spooky side of things or are seeking more festive ways to spend the evening of October 31 (couples costumes, anyone?). The possibilities are endless.
Let’s set the ball rolling already…
Halloween Date Ideas for 2022
Below are some spooky and pretty conventional Halloween Date ideas for any couple.
Make your own candy
Even if you’re too old to trick-or-treat, it doesn’t mean you can’t satisfy your sweet tooth! Make these handmade Butterfingers with your significant other for a date night activity and a Halloween movie night snack.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
A trip to the pumpkin patch is one of the few things that scream “autumn.” Enjoy cider doughnuts while strolling around the fields, then take a pumpkin home to carve while watching a horror movie.
Participate at a Fall Festival
During the autumn months, there is always at least one fair or festival to attend. Whether you visit an old-fashioned county fair, a pumpkin festival, or an amusement park, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to food and entertainment; one of the most excessively dope Halloween date ideas if I might add.
Prepare a Halloween-themed Dinner Together
Make a menu of Halloween supper recipes, and then settle down for a memorable feast. Pro tip: To warm up both of you, try a bourbon cider!
See a Scary Flick at a Drive-In
On a fall Saturday, there’s nothing quite like a drive-in movie. Look for one near you, and keep an eye out for frightening movie screenings around Halloween—you’ll have tons of alternatives.
Put on your best outfit!
It’s enjoyable to dress up on your own, but if you bring a friend along, you’ll have a more memorable costume. Dress up as your favorite movie characters (you have many of ’80s costumes to choose from!) or go for a food-themed coupling, such as milk and cookies.
Make Apples with Caramel Sauce
If you’ve never tried making caramel apples before, now is the time to do it. For a delightful way to end Halloween night, try our Cookie-Coated Caramel Apple dish.
Pay a Visit to a Spooky House
You can’t possibly visit a haunted house alone, which is why it’s one of the most iconic Halloween date ideas. Plus, there’s no better reason to cling to one another.
Take a Trip to a Corn Maze
Aside from the great fall setting, the nicest part of a corn maze date is that you may schedule it at your leisure. Many corn mazes across the country provide both midnight and daylight activities.
Visit a Halloween Breweries
When it comes to fall activities, breweries are always a must-see, but around Halloween, there are even more reasons to go. Many establishments across the country provide Halloween-themed beverages, live music, and other events to keep you and your date entertained for the entire afternoon.
Go to a Halloween Theme Bar
Put on your best Halloween costume and go out for a couple of drinks. Most pubs dress for Halloween and serve a few eerie drinks appropriate for the season.
Take a Road Trip to Get Out of Town
Take a fall road trip to see the fall foliage up close. Along the way, you can schedule a few Halloween-themed activities, such as a visit to a haunted house or corn maze.
Go to a Halloween Get-Together
Step out for the night to a Halloween party to celebrate the occasion. It’s the perfect opportunity to put that couples costume you’ve been working on to the test.
Carve a Pumpkin With Your Friends
Did you think you’d make it to the end of this list without seeing at least one reference to a Jack-o’-lantern? Grab your pumpkin carving equipment out, and get to work creating one of these grin-inducing masterpieces with your family.
Make Use of Any Candy That You Have Left Over
You’ll have to wait till the holiday is over to try this out, but it’s a great alternative for the day after Halloween. Candy-covered caramel bars, biscuits loaded with peanut butter cups, or Ree’s Concession Stand Crackers are all great ways to repurpose your candy collection.
Organize a Scary Movie Marathon for Two
Make a list of your favorite horror movies with your friends (or opt for something lighter, like Hocus Pocus). Grab your popcorn, settle in, and prepare to be terrified.
You two can work together to provide a memorable Halloween experience for the kids in your community. Pick up some candy from the shop, then wait for trick-or-treaters to arrive at your front door. The sheer cuteness of it all will knock you both out.
Watch a Scary Movie at Home
These frightening films terrify me, but hey snuggle time (which I adore)! When I was a teenager, I discovered a classic tactic that was code for “I’m looking for snuggle action” when I had a date. And it’s something I try to put up with at least once a year to keep my spouse happy, despite the fact that I won’t be able to sleep in a dark room alone for three months afterward.
Plan Halloween Costumes or Make them
We’re fortunate in that we always have a couple’s party to look forward to, where everyone goes all out, but even if we don’t have anywhere to go on the big night, it’s still enjoyable to snap some photos.
Date With Bonefire and S’mores
Find a place to make a bonfire and tell ghost stories based on your summer camp experiences. S’mores and frightening stories are still just as much fun for kids as they are for adults!
Listen to a Horror Podcast
In the thriller, mystery, and even horror story genres, there are a plethora of entertaining podcasts. Consider another interesting place to visit.
Watch an Old Halloween Movie
If you’ve ever been invited to a friend’s Hitchcock movie night, you definitely would become a little obsessed with the director. It could be low-key with plenty of frightening-themed cuisines. Trust me, it’s a terrific free/cheap date that’s ideal to do alone or with a group.
Look into seats for a Halloween/horror performance at your local theater! I guarantee you’ll come upon something weird.
Visit a Haunted place in Your Area
Locate the local urban legend and visit it. I can’t tell you how many sites in the mountains where I grew up were rumored to be murder hotspots. We have a few ghost towns with ghost tours just two hours from Phoenix in Arizona, and everything has something. Look up the story, retell it, and then go to the site!
Attend an Amusement Park Haunted Night
These can be anything from cute to terrifying. A night of pursuing zombies while enjoying your thrills on rides, on the other hand, is an all-around adrenaline rush!
Have a Picnic in the Cemetery
Knowing your boundaries is important, but watching the sunset in an appropriate location is just frightening enough to make for an ideal romantic and scary Halloween date.
Attend an Event on Dia De Los Muertos
I adore how popular Dia De Los Muertos festivals are growing, and how makeup is becoming a greater trend for Halloween costumes. They’re a lot of fun, and you may dress up or down for them.
They also make Halloween feel calmer and are a lovely way to respect ancestors.
Pull an Halloween Prank
If you’re as spooky as I am, go scare the people you care about. I enjoy jumping out of piles of leaves, dressing up as ghouls to visit our parents, and putting up scary decorations, among other things. It’s sometimes just a lot of fun to be afraid and laugh a lot.
Build a Halloween House
Why not construct a haunted house variation of a graham cracker gingerbread house for Halloween? There are tons of adorable haunted house decorating kits that make it so simple!
