Catch the sunrise Together
Start your day off early by watching the sunrise together. Our free printables include “his” and “hers” tasks for you to do together while the sun rises. Just like a sunrise needs a sunset, you will need each other to work together in harmony to create the ultimate romantic date!

You’ll end the day with a magical sunset date. Your lists will detail everything you need to make this a truly memorable experience.
Each date comes equipped with its own set of unique activities that you’ll be doing together, including some gorgeous sunset painting ideas!
ACTIVITIES to enjoy on your sunset date
Two dates in one day might sound complicated, but don’t worry—we’ve got you covered with everything you will need, so you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the date!
Step One: Grab your free printables by clicking on the link below. These include amazing ideas and suggestions to make this sunset date super romantic and fun!
Step Two: The printables include a “his” and “hers” task list (so two lists!) that covers both the sunrise and sunset portions of the date. These detail what activities you’ll both be doing or what you’ll need to pack or buy beforehand. Print out both “his” and “hers” task lists and use them to prepare for your date.
Step Three: Work together to make each date a success. If you both follow your lists, everything should go pretty smoothly!
Hint: Did you know that you can look up your local sunrise and sunset times? Check it out here to make sure you don’t miss out on the beauty and simplicity of this date.
Tip: If there is a pretty place nearby to watch either the sunrise or sunset, try to go there. However, keep in mind that if you have little kids at home, we totally get that getting an early morning babysitter might be tough! You can watch both the sunrise and sunset from your own yard or even a window if that works better for you. The most important part is just spending intentional time together.
If you’d rather keep the actual date ideas a surprise, skip ahead to the next section now. If you want to be clued in on the individual sunrise and sunset date ideas, here is what you’ll be doing for each date!
- Sunrise Date: Wake up early, so you don’t miss the sunrise! Pack a breakfast and a cozy blanket, then find a pretty place to watch the sunrise together while you read a romantic book of poetry together.
- Sunset Date: Pack a picnic dinner and some art supplies. Find somewhere with a great view so you can paint the sunset as you witness it!
This date can be enjoyed totally free with things you already have at home. Check your lists ahead of time and adjust as necessary. If you want to follow it exactly, here are some links that might be helpful to make sure you have everything you need for a truly magical date!
- Picnic Basket
- Paint Set (Grab two!) You can also research some fun sunset painting ideas beforehand.
- Poetry Book
- Meats, Cheese, Crackers, Sparkling Cider

Oh I love this! I MIGHT even wake up for it. 😉 But we’re definitely doing this on Saturday!
What a sweet idea!
I LOVE THIS!!! When my husband & I were dating, we spent every Sunday in the park together. My sweetheart proposed to me there! Shhhh..I’m gonna do this THIS weekend! 😉 Thanks for this great idea! 😉
I love this idea! This Saturday for sure! Thanks so much 🙂
On our first day of married life my husband and I watched both the sunrise and sunset in each others arms! Now with the chaos of two monkeys under two we never willingly get up before the sun but maybe some day soon 🙂
Watching the sun rise at the END of a long night is always a lot more fun 🙂
Such a simple but memorable date idea, Paige! I love it!!!!!
One of these days I’m going to get my hubby up to watch the sunrise on purpose. I love your blanket and your amazing pictures!!! xox
