It is winter and we all want to warm up in this cold harsh weather. It seems like the perfect time to be on the lookout for fun date ideas. If you’re struggling to come up with great date ideas, you will love my blog post. I know how difficult it can be to plan that perfect date. Planning dates perfectly usually require good weather, great scenery and some amazing activities. I have compiled a list of awesome winter date ideas for you to explore.
1. Ice Skating
Ice skating can be a fun date, even if you’re not very good at it. It’s a pretty forgiving activity — you can hold hands and help each other stay upright, grabbing the wall for support when necessary. If you don’t have an ice rink close by, check out indoor roller skating rinks.
Sledding is the perfect winter date. It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s free! Plus, you can create a memorable experience by making your own hot chocolate or cider to sip as you race down hills. If you want to make this idea even more special, pack a picnic lunch to enjoy while you take a break from sledding. Sledding is a great option for when you want to do something outdoorsy with your honey but don’t feel like planning a big adventure.
3. Build a snowman
If you live somewhere with snow, take advantage of it with this classic winter activity. If you want to get competitive, try seeing who can build the biggest snowman in the shortest amount of time. You can even make it into a contest and give out prizes for categories like “tallest,” “most creative,” and “best snowman name.”
4. Snowball Fight
If you want to stay outside and have some fun on your winter date, but don’t want to go sledding, try having a snowball fight instead. Snowball fights are just plain fun, and they have the added benefit of getting your heart rate up and burning more calories than you might think. Of course, we recommend that you throw snowballs at your date rather than at each other.
5. Attend a holiday party together
This is the perfect time of year to attend parties together. Whether it’s an office party or one hosted by friends or family members, use this as an opportunity to mingle and spend quality time together.
6. Get cozy over coffee or hot chocolate.
There’s nothing like warming up with your favorite cup of joe or hot chocolate, especially if you can do it with someone special by your side. Savor the taste of the season by making homemade hot cocoa and peppermint marshmallows.
7. Go see a concert that your significant other would enjoy.
Find a local band or singer performing at a small venue (bars are always good options) and spend an evening dancing to good music and getting to know each other better. Not only will it be more memorable than dinner at the same old pizza place, it’ll be cheaper too!
8. Head out for a romantic dinner.
Going out for dinner with your significant other can be very romantic in the winter. You can have a nice meal with some delicious food and wine while enjoying each other’s company. If you want to do something extra special, try adding candles or flowers to make it more romantic!
9. Go bowling together!
If your significant other likes bowling, this is the perfect date idea for the winter months because it gets really cold outside. Bowling alleys often tend not to be crowded during the weekdays so it’s an ideal place for couples who want some privacy without having too many people around them all night long!
10. Cook a new recipe together for dinner.
Do a little research on Pinterest or Instagram and pick out something to make together. The creativity of coming up with a dish and the teamwork of preparing it will bring you closer than ever.
11. Visit a museum.
Museums aren’t just for school field trips and out-of-town guests anymore. A lot of museums offer free or discounted admission during certain hours of the day, so check their websites before heading over.
12. Indoor picnic.
Sure, you can’t sit outside on a blanket and enjoy a beautiful day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pretend it’s spring or summer! Make yourself some finger sandwiches and pour some wine (or your favorite drink) into plastic cups and enjoy a candlelit picnic in front of your fireplace.
13. Build a fort.
Stay at home and build the coziest blanket fort you can muster! It’s like camping, but better.
14.Take an online class together.
In today’s world, there are so many amazing online classes that you can take with your partner. Whether it’s learning a new language or trying out a new workout, these classes are sure to keep the spark alive.
15. See a movie.
f you’re lucky enough to live in an area with a drive-in theater, take advantage of it! You can bring your own hot chocolate and popcorn, along with a couple of blankets to sit on and cuddle up with your sweetie. Or, just go see a movie in an indoor theater. Either way, it’s a good time for some entertainment and cuddling time.
16. Check out an independent cafe or bookstore.
You can never do too much reading, so find an independent bookstore or cafe and spend an afternoon browsing through magazines and books that catch your interest. You can even buy a book for each other — if you’re feeling generous — and get ready to discuss it over dinner in the weeks to come!
We’ve put together a list of date ideas for the winter months. Hopefully these will help to bring some new excitement to your relationship with your significant other.
