Romantic April Fool’s Day Pranks
Pranking your partner on April Fool’s can go one of two ways – a totally hilarious win or a downright disaster. Forget fake proposals and epic breakup scenes (those are super cheesy and played out anyway), instead opt for our list of April 1st tricks that are fun and really romantic!
“Cancel” Your Plans
Looking for a super easy way to prank your sweetie on April the 1st? Make some plans the night before the big day with your love and then cancel by text on April Fool’s. While they’re reeling from you ditching out on set plans, you can go about the day creating a super romantic vibe at your place. Pick them up at their home and explain that date night is officially back on — then make your way back to yours and surprise them with your efforts from earlier.
If you’re the creative type then it makes sense to use those artistic skills in pranks on your lover. You can write a bad song, paint an ugly portrait, or piece together a terrible sculpture — whatever works for you! Present it to your partner as if it’s the best thing that you’ve ever created, but later reveal the real piece that you made just for them.
The Doomed Date Night
Invite your guy over for a cozy date night on April Fool’s Day (but make no mention of the holiday as you don’t want to tip him off before the prank even gets started). Once he’s over, look for little ways to “screw up” the evening as much as you can – burn the dinner, forget the wine, claim your Wi-Fi and Netflix aren’t working — whatever creates a feeling of date night doom. When the night looks like a total disaster, suggest a run for boring pizza, then bring him out to a waiting reservation at the restaurant of his dreams.
A Silly e-Card
If you’re feeling kind of lazy when it comes to April Fool’s Day pranks this year, no worries! A quick search on holiday e-cards will reveal a ton of hilarious (but romantic) ideas worth sending. From totally over the top poems to cute jokes tailored to your SO, you’re sure to find something that fits the bill.
You’ll need to plan this prank way in advance, but if you pull it off without issue the rewards reaped will be huge! A few days before April Fool’s Day hits, tell your SO that you found a great travel deal online and you bought it for a trip with the boys. She’ll be bummed that you’re going on a killer vacay without her (meanwhile you’ll have gotten her bestie to pack a bag full of her things). Get a ride to the airport on the day of the flight and make sure her pre-packed bag is ready to go in the trunk – spring the flight tickets for two once you hit the departure gates and wait as she freaks out in epic fashion. Most romantic April Fool’s Day prank ever!
You can have a fun April Fool’s Day without emotionally scarring your partner and these unique pranks prove just that!
