You found someone equally as cool as you and want to go on a unique date with them. Or maybe it’s a special anniversary for you and your S.O., and you want to plan something different.

We think you’re gonna love these Hammock Dates!
1. Beach Jam Hammock Sesh
Live close enough to a shoreline? Head out to the beach and find a pair of trees to hang your hammock(s) between. Then, bring a ukulele or guitar if you have one and delight your date to some fun melodies. Everything is a little more romantic when you’re singing along to some tunes on the beach.
Bonus points if you catch the sunrise or sunset!
2. Hammock Picnic Date
Sure, picnic dates are great and all, but want to know what’s even better? A picnic date suspended in the air. How to master the perfect hammock picnic date: get a hammock big enough for the both of you, pack up some tasty fruits and sandwich fixin’s into a cool basket, find a secluded spot, and bring some lanterns if you’re planning on sunset date. You’ll definitely win date night with this super thoughtful idea.
3. Netflix ‘N Hammock
Venture outside the confines of your couch and take to your cozy hammock for some quality time spent binge-watching. Make sure your laptop has plenty of juice, then hang your hammock in a fun new spot where you can pick up WiFi or bring some DVDs if you want to go off the grid. Movie night just got a whole lot cooler.
4. Hammock Hive Group Date
Have some awesome hammocking friends? Get the whole gang together for a big group date. Scope out a sweet spot in the woods to hang up a hammock hive and try to get everyone as close together as possible. You’ll have a great time hanging with everyone, and group get-togethers take a lot of pressure off a first or second date.
5. Cozy Winter Hammock Cuddles
If you want an excuse to get all snuggled up with your S.O. (not that you need one!), then plan an uber-cozy hammock date during the wintertime when the temperatures are dropping and body heat is a must. Bring plenty of blankets and warm lights to amp up the romance and spend a toasty night hung in one of your favorite spots.
6. Spontaneous Hang
Keep things fun and light with a surprise hammock date. Get your special someone into the car and keep driving until you find a new, random spot that looks like an awesome hammock hang. The surprise element to this date idea will make it extra exciting and a moment the two of you will never forget!
7. Hike to Hammock
Bring some activity to your date with a hike to a secluded spot near a creek or secret waterfall. Then, set up the hammock for a rewarding nap next to the soothing sounds of the water. This is a perfect daytime date that has lots of room for customization! You can even combine this date with the picnic date for a full-out experience.
