About Six Thrift Store Date Night Ideas

SIX Thrift Store Date Night Ideas

Need some unique date nights to share with your significant other? Look no further then Goodwill! We’ve rounded up 6 unique date night ideas featuring your favorite thrift store: Goodwill!

#1 Outfit Challenge

Give yourselves a budget (it can be whatever you’d like, $25, $50 etc.) to create a “look” for the other person. You can have a lot of fun with this and go hunting for something the other person would actually wear, or you could go for the most “unique” look. At the end of the night, determine a winner between the two of you! Post the results on social media and tag us!

#2 Puzzles/ Boardgames  

Did you know that all of our thrift store locations have a games, puzzles and crafting section? We have often seen brand new in the box (with shrink wrap and all). Go with your partner and pick out a new to you board game, or puzzle to do together at home. Pick out some snacks, or order takeout and have fun!

#3 Find the Most Unique Item Challenge

Give each other the challenge to find the most unique item. If you want to put a time limit on it set a timer for 15 min or 30 min, and get to work! This will require you to really scour the store, and keep your eye open for something unique. Together decide who "won" with most unique item!

#4 Find/Purchase ONE Gift for the Other

Set a budget and go look for an item/gift that would be perfect for your partner. Check-out without them seeing it, go home, wrap it, and exchange the gifts with each other explaining why you got what you did.

#5 Paint Night/Create an Art Piece

Stretch those upcycling muscles and create some art with each other! Some ideas to get you started:

  • Buy a canvas/art piece from Goodwill and paint over it with your own creation.
  • Paint/decorate a piece of furniture with each other
  • Grab a décor item and add some colour/creativity to it together (ideas could be: vase, lamp, wall décor item, garden piece, wine or beer glasses etc.).

#6 Thrift Store Scavenger Hunt

  • Load the list on your phone, and head out to your local Goodwill for your date!
  • Set a timer for 30 min, and take off looking for each item on the list.
