There is nothing that makes me happier than spending a day with one of my best girl friends doing girly things and making happy memories 👭
As much as coffee, shopping and dinner dates are always enjoyable, it can get a little bit samey, so today I have put together a list of eleven activity ideas which you can do with your best friend that won’t break the bank!
11 Best Friend Date Ideas
Don’t knock it! Bingo isn’t just for old people! A trip down the bingo hall can really get your mind going and your competitive side out in full swing!
If you’ve never tried sushi before, then this is a great way to try a brand new cuisine with a selection of small dishes ranging from meat, fish and vegetarian options. Who doesn’t love trying out new foods and finding a new favourite?
AFTERNOON TEA ☕
I love going for afternoon tea with my friends. Especially if you’re not much of an alcohol drinker, afternoon tea is a great way to sit down and have a catch up with your friend whilst enjoying a selection of teas, cakes and sandwiches. It’s also an excuse to dress up a bit fancier than usual.
OUTDOOR CINEMA 🎞
A new take on seeing a movie together – take a trip to the outdoor cinema and watch a classic movie outside! It’s a great way to socialise in your community, get some fresh air, enjoy and picnic and watch a classic movie that you’ve not seen in years! Outdoor cinema’s often play the classics such as Grease, Dirty Dancing and Mama Mia as they’re always crowd pleasers!
COCKTAIL CLASS 🍸
Attend a cocktail class with your bestie (assuming you’re old enough) and not only will you have the chance to try out a few new cocktails that you would never usually order, but you can learn to make them so next time you have guests, you can impress them with your mixing skills!
If you’re looking for a social way to keep fit, then yoga might be the right choice for you! Yoga offers a whole bunch of different health benefits and is a great way to relax and socialise at the same time. If you’re a beginner, then going with your bestie can make the experience much less nerve wracking as you won’t walk into a class of experienced people all by yourself.
Look on Pinterest and Google for baking recipes and make delicious cookies, brownies and cakes together. Even have a competition of who can come up with the most unique design, or who can include an unusual ingredient in a tasty way.
Karaoke might be considered ‘trashy’ but even so, it’s SO much fun to do with your best friend! Whether you’re brave enough to take to the stage without a drink, or you have a couple of glasses of wine together to get yourself fired up, you’re sure to have such a laugh singing nostalgic classics from the Spice Girls to Britany Spears!
COMPUTER GAMES 🎮
If you love playing video games, then why not fire up The Sims or any of your favourite computer games and play together? My bestie and I used to love designing our dream houses on The Sims and would create characters that resemble all the people in our life and it’s great to escape into the land of fantasy for a few hours!
BOARD GAMES 🧩
Games nights are my absolute fave! Whether you’re playing with a group of your closest pals, or just the two of you, you’re sure to have a giggle and enjoy some healthy competition. My personal favourites are Rummikub, Monopoly and Cards Against Humanity.
PAINTING CLASS 🎨
Last but not least, if you love to get creative then why not attend a painting class together? Whether you’re an experienced painter or have never picked up a brush before, there are classes in most cities which will teach you step by step how to paint, and by the end of the class, you will come away with a stunning piece of artwork that you can be proud of.
