Winter Date Ideas

With weather getting colder and money going towards Christmas gifts, winter can be a difficult time to plan fun, inexpensive dates. However, winter has some of my favorite possibilities for dates! Here are a few my boyfriend and I enjoy.

1.) Going to the arcade. I am a Skee Ball freak. While walking through the mall last week, we popped into the arcade. It was a blast. I forgot the simple joy a few dollars worth of coins can bring. My competitive side was out when shooting hoops against him!

2.) Look at the Christmas lights. This is another favorite of mine. Heat up some hot cocoa, put on a coat, and go for a walk around the neighborhood to look at lights. Most cities have a neighborhood where people go crazy with the lights. Make a night out of it and go check them out.

3.) Have a cozy night in. I am a homebody and prefer staying in to going out. This winter I am looking forward to a night wearing Christmas pajamas, watching Christmas movies (especially Elf!) and making a gingerbread house.

4.) Game night! Invite a few friends over and make sugar cookies to decorate. Pull out your favorite games. My favorite recommendation is Cards Against Humanity. You are guaranteed a night of laughs.

5.) Visit Santa. You are never too old to tell Santa what you want for Christmas. Kill two birds with one stone when you visit the local arcade. Put on your ugly Christmas sweaters and go take a picture with Santa.

6.) Buy each other gifts at the Dollar Store. One of my favorite dates I have had with my boyfriend is when we explored the dollar store in our area. We separated at the store with the task to find the perfect gift for the other person. It was hilarious. I ended up buying my boyfriend a bright orange snap back...he loves LOUD colors. He bought me a HUGE wine glass. Obviously a smart choice on his part!

7.) Volunteer. So many people need help year round. Volunteering together is a great way to enjoy each others company while spreading cheer. The opportunity to make a difference to someone else will strengthen your bond with your significant other.

What are your favorite winter dates?
