Top 10 Tilburg date ideas:

  1. If you love to be in bookshops or libraries then this date idea is for you. Gianotten Mutsaers offers a variety of books (also in English) and can give you as much as two levels worth of literacy to look at. However, it is not just any bookshop, it is also a café! Thus, after you have savored the books you can retreat to their café and enjoy a warm coffee with some delicious cake.Gianotten Mutsaers - indebuurt Tilburg

A bonus 11th date idea:

  • Cuddle up into your bed with your pookie in the matching Oodies you bought them as a Valentine’s day gift (you can get them for cheap in primark), order some pizza and cuddle up with your favourite rom-com or John Wick (it’s our comfort movie- don’t judge). Get some scented candles to set the mood and enjoy a comfy night in with the person (or people) you love the most!

    Location: We don’t know where you live, that’s creepy!

Have an incredible day of love with your partner, friends, or even yourself!

All the love,

The Common Room.
