17 Fabulous Holiday Date Ideas

Heat up your relationship this winter with some fun, easy date ideas that are sure to melt away those winter blues.

Holidays:

1. Cook together – this opens the door to more opportunities. Whether you feed his family, donate food to those in need, or have a romantic dinner for two, cooking almost always brings people closer together.

2. Holiday movie marathon.

3. Look for local events – there are always tree lightings, holiday festivals, and sometimes even ugly sweater parties taking place. Check out your local activities calendar.

4. Sponsor a family/toys for tots – there are plenty of ways to give back this time of year to those in need. It will bring out the best in you both.

Outdoors:

1. Snowshoe at night.

2. Be a kid again – start snowball fights, build forts, create snowmen; snow provides plenty of fun opportunities to share.

3. Go for a walk on the beach if you live by the water.

4. Ice skate – many towns have outdoor rinks in the winter time, but as long as it is safe, ponds and bogs can be a great place to spend time in a secluded place.

5. Go to a local park – they can be beautiful with fresh snow.

Stay in:

1. Watch upcoming awards shows – make a game out of it, predict who is going to win and make small, fun bets with your partner.

2. Watch movies that are up for awards – it will provide context for the awards shows and you can even make it more like a “movie theatre” experience.

3. Fondue night! Doesn’t it sound like fun?

4. Cook/bake something you have always wanted to, or already love.

5. Look through old picture albums – but beware of the embarrassing ones!

6. Old home videos can provide lots of laughs, too.

Go out:

1. Find a coffee shop that is open late so you can sit and chat.

2. Hit the town – many towns have small comedy/theatre clubs that are reasonably priced; plus, this might allow you to do dinner AND a show.
