Winter does not mean you have to hibernate inside all season. Here are some of the best winter date ideas to embrace the cold weather and get into holiday spirit with the person you want underneath the mistletoe.
1) Build gingerbread houses.
Making gingerbread houses with your significant other can be a great way to figure out who the better candy house builder is amongst the two of you. Make it a competition, whoever wins has to make the other person an eggnog.
2) Go skating.
Skating with your significant other during the holidays is a great way to get some exercise and join in the classic holiday activities. If you don’t have skates no worries, if you have a local rink, chances are you can rent some skates from there. Look into where you can go skating in your area and where you can get some skates beforehand.
3) Go snowshoeing.
Snowshoeing the perfect date if you want to do something unique. If you live in a snowy climate, snowshoeing is a great to get out in the snow and do a winter activity with your love. Chances are your date has never been snowshoeing, so this is a great unique date idea that your lover will appreciate.
4) Go skiing/snowboarding.
Take your date skiing or snowboarding. Another fun activity and ideal if you live near a ski hill. Shred those slopes together!
5) Watch your favorite Christmas movie.
A classic winter date idea is to have a Christmas movie night with your love. Stay inside and keep warm with some classic Christmas movies. Some great ones are Elf, Home Alone, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Eggnog would be the perfect holiday drink to sip while watching these holiday flicks.
6) Drive around to look at Christmas lights.
Admire the best Christmas lights in your city with your date. It’s fun to look at other people’s Christmas light decorations and displays; especially if they go all out. Throw on your Christmas Playlist in your car, sip a peppermint hot chocolate, and enjoy the Christmas lights!
7) Go sledding.
Grab a toboggan and head out on your towns snowiest hill. A great date to enjoy the cold and have some fun no matter how old you are.
8) Set up your Christmas tree together.
Setting up your Christmas tree together while playing some holiday hits can be quite romantic. You can sing, dance, and decorate. What a productive date! This date pairs best with a glass of wine.
9) Bake gingerbread men together.
What better date than baking and decorating some gingerbread cookies together? The best part of this date is you end up with delicious cookies you can indulge in.
10) Have a snowball fight.
You're never too old to have a snowball fight. This date is not for everybody but if you and your date like snow and cold then go for it!
11) Go Christmas shopping together.
Going Christmas shopping with your significant other can be fun and productive. Find the perfect gifts for the people on your Christmas list while making a date out of it. However, you might have to make another trip to pick out a present for your significant other if you want to keep it a surprise.
12) Volunteer to help out at a charity together.
Nothing says Christmas spirit like giving back. This date will make you feel great on the inside and make a difference in your community. There are plenty of great charities who would love the extra help especially around Christmas time. Research which one’s interest you and plan a date with your significant other to go and volunteer!
