1. Try ice skating.

Depending on where you live, try heading out to your local pond if it’s cold enough. If it’s not, check local areas that may have put up an ice skating rink or a local ice arena near you.

This is a perfect date for holding hands and enjoying some quality time together. 

2. Go look at Christmas lights.

Try heading to your local coffee shop and grabbing some hot cocoa. You can also drive around subdivisions while singing along to your favorite holiday music and checking out all the beautiful Christmas lights. 

3. Decorate a gingerbread house.

Head to the local grocery store and pick out your favorite gingerbread house or gingerbread train. Then, head home and let the decorating begin!

You can also get two different houses and make it a fun and friendly contest for the best gingerbread house. 

4. Watch Christmas movies.

Start a fire, pop the popcorn, and heat up that hot chocolate while cuddling up and having a romantic movie night. This is a perfect date for these cold nights.

If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, go check out your local zoo. Many zoos around the holiday season decorate the zoo with a beautiful light display and you can check out all the animals as well. 

6. Bake cookies.

Pull out both your families’ favorite cookie recipes and bake them together. You can play holiday music while baking and dancing around. 

7.  Pick and cut a tree together.

Look for your local tree farm and head out there for an afternoon date. This bonding activity will allow you to go pick the perfect tree to cut down together and bring home. 

8. Decorate the house and the Christmas tree.

Whether you live together or not, this is always a fun date idea. If you live together, you can pull out all the decorations or head to the store and decorate the house and the Christmas tree.

If you live separately, you can go to each other’s houses and decorate together.
