The holidays are a really busy time, but they can also be a really romantic time if you’re in a relationship. Think about it: all of those twinkling lights, the magical snow you’ll (hopefully) get and the infectious music that fills the air can add up to a cute scene straight out of a movie.
Take advantage of the short holiday time to do something special with your boo. If you’re super busy around the holidays, it’s easy to get stressed out and forget to spend so much time together. Don’t let that happen! Whether you want to save money or do something a little more elaborate, these 10 ideas for cute holiday winter dates have got you covered. Enjoy!
Make A Gingerbread HouseMaking a gingerbread house together is the holiday equivalent of carving pumpkins together during the fall. It's a little complicated, but super fun. There are lots of gingerbread house kits out there, so need to do this from scratch... unless you want a challenge! Source: ShutterStock
Bake Christmas CookiesOne of the best things about Christmas is the cookies that come along with it. If your boyfriend is into baking, make this a fun activity you two can do together rather than a chore you have to do on your own. Pick a bunch of easy recipes, go food shopping together and then have a marathon baking sesh. Oh yeah, and then eat them all. Source: ShutterStock
Check Out The DecorationsIf you don't feel like spending any money and one of you can drive, do this easy and fun date idea: make thermoses of hot chocolate and drive around at night to check out all of the holiday decorations. Looking at Christmas lights is so festive and being alone in the car together gives you two a chance to bond. Source; ShutterStock
Go Sledding/Skiing/SnowboardingIf you get snow where you live, take advantage of it! Go out sledding or take a day to go skiing or snowboarding. It's a fun, stress-free activity for both of you that will take your mind off all the other holiday craziness. Source: ShutterStock
Have A Christmas Movie MarathonAnother cheap and easy date idea is to have a holiday movie marathon together. Cuddle up on the couch with some hot chocolate and watch a bunch of great movies. My picks for a date would be It's A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Elf, but watch whatever is your favorite! Source; ShutterStock
Decorate A Mini Tree For One Of Your RoomsYou guys don't live together so you can't exactly decorate together just yet, but that doesn't mean you can't buy a tiny Christmas tree to make your own! If you feel like spending the money on this cute decoration, go for it. Source: ShutterStock
Go Ice SkatingYes, it's a cliched winter date, but it's still fun! Ice skating is way more magical around the holidays than any time of the year, so get out there and strut your stuff! Source; ShutterStock
See A Holiday PerformanceFind a holiday performance around you and go to it with your boo. You can see something like The Nutcracker or the Rockettes, or I'm sure there will be a showing of some sort of Christmas play around you. Source; ShutterStock
