“Remember, remember, the 5th of November” and honestly, if you do it right, it can be a memorable, romantic date. What better time to live out your rom com fantasies than today, when the fireworks will be your backdrop for some enviable, Hollywood style smooching. You gotta put in the work though. It’s not enough to just find a free (or ticketed, if you feel like splashing out) fireworks display, you also need a CLiKD approved Bonfire date night kit. So, here are 5 things that’ll take your Bonfire date night to the next level…
A good spot to see the fireworks
This, should be a no brainer (I hope.) There are a ton of options available to you. From Alexandra Palace to Harrow, you’ll be hard pressed to find a London borough that isn’t getting in on that dollar.
All that’s left for you to do is pick a place that’s suitable for you guys. Whether that’s based on proximity or firework display range is up to you. Just remember to pick a good place to meet or you may not even see each other on the night.
All the layers
Another no brainer, but if you haven’t noticed, it’s getting a bit nippy out. Handy to have extra layers, but if you really want to turn up the romance, now’s the time to whip out that blanket for the two of you to cuddle under.
Preparation like that can take you real far, plus you’ll have all the onlookers around on their Bonfire date nights burning with jealous. Practical and a slick move, go get ’em!
You might not have time to do a flask of hot chocolate or coffee, but at least come correct with some hot drinks! You don’t want to waste prime Bonfire date night time looking for a café! That’s optimal time that could be spent on finding a perfect spot and getting comfy!
If you can bring a flask or thermos, that’ll be ideal, especially if you plan to be out for a while. We all know chain coffee shops don’t really serve their drinks all that hot to begin with, so be ahead of the curve. Don’t forget cups!
Possibly something to sit on
Depending on where you’ve chosen for your Bonfire Night date, you may end up standing (it’s pretty likely.) However, if cupid is on your side, you might be able to sit!
If that’s the case, the grass could be damp or all manner of things (let’s not get into it…) Anyway, be Bonfire date night ready with something to sit. Whether that’s a picnic style blanket, it’s up to you. Sure, you could sit on your coats but hello! Grass stains! You can definitely avoid this and look like a hero!
Snacks (aside from you and your date, of course 😉 )
Like any good event, snacks can make it or break it. Now is the perfect time to showcase your knowledge of them? Are they a sucker for Haribo Tangfastics? Do they prefer a bag of dried fruits, perhaps? Maybe they’re a crisp fiend? Bring ’em all!
Your Bonfire date night could be just the time to show them all the little details you’ve picked up about them. Also, aside from the in depth, intellectual conversations we know you’ll have, you may as well get your snack on before the show starts!
So, there you have it! 5 things that’ll take your Bonfire date night to the next level. We hope you’ll have all you need. If all goes well, you’ll be creating fireworks of your own… too cheesy?? Ok, I’m done! Enjoy!
