Fun Halloween Date Ideas
#1 Pumpkin Carving Date Night
Plan a pumpkin carving date night. This can be the perfect follow-up date to going to a pumpkin patch with your sweetie.
If you didn’t make it to a pumpkin patch, you can always pick up a few pumpkins at your local store.
For this date night you will need:
- Pumpkins – You will need at least one pumpkin for this date idea. If you and your date each want to carve your own pumpkins, then be sure to get two.
My hubby and I always get 2 to 3 pumpkins for this pumpkin carving date. We each like to carve our own and then we have one additional pumpkin that we can get creative together on.
It really does come down to time and personal preference.
- Pumpkin Carving Kit – Be sure to order 2 pumpkin carving kits. There is nothing more annoying than carving pumpkins and having to take turns with the scooper or the tools that you want to be using.
- Pumpkin Carving Templates – There are lots of free pumpkin carving templates that are available online if you hunt around. Another great option is to order pumpkin carving templates. This makes the carving process so much easier.
- Tea Lights OR Flameless Tea Lights – You will want to be able to light up your pumpkins and admire your hard work after you are done. Order some tea lights or flameless tea lights and make your jack-o-lantern glow!
#2 Have A Scary Movie Marathon
If you and your sweetie enjoy movies and the thrill of a good scare you will love having a scary movie marathon during the Halloween season.
For this date night you will need:
- Your favorite movie snacks and drinks.
- A cozy blanket to snuggle under.
- Some of your favorite scary movies.
This scary movie marathon is a date night that you can extend throughout the Halloween season.
Consider selecting several Halloween-themed movies that you can watch throughout the month of October.
If you can get through all your favorites in one night though, go for it!

#6 Guess The Candy Date Night
This date night is one of our favorite Halloween date night ideas.
If you and your partner enjoy sweets and surprises this one is for you!
What you need for this date night:
- Several different types of Halloween candy
You will put each type of candy in a different Halloween candy bowl. You and your sweetie will take turns doing blind candy taste tests.
Whoever is guessing the candy will be wearing the blindfold, and the other will be feeding the person wearing the blindfold the candy.
If the person wearing the blindfold guesses the correct candy they get a point.
You can play this candy-tasting game as long as you want. We typically play to 20 points, that’s what we’ve found works best.
You can spend the rest of your evening enjoying the leftover sweets!

Costume shopping makes for a fun Halloween themed date night for sure!
It’s best to do this date night early in October because your options for costumes become more limited as the month goes on.
I’ve learned this the hard way and if you’re looking to have what you want and have it be the right size, shop early!
