Just because it’s November and not even Thanksgiving yet doesn’t mean it’s too early to get into the holiday spirit. The holiday spirit can brighten anyone’s mood and the reason why this time of the year is so happy. Getting into the holiday spirit means spending your nights watching cheesy Christmas movies and baking cookies. Still, if you have a significant other this holiday season, you’ve got another whole list of things to do. So if you’re one of the lucky ones to have someone to snuggle up to on the couch this winter, here are some fun date ideas to get into the holiday spirit:
Watch holiday movies
A classic date idea that really nothing can beat. I mean, Christmas is the perfect time for Hallmark movies, and what’s better than binge-watching with your bae?
Bake holiday goods
The holiday season means cookies, cakes, and all our favorite baked goods. And I don’t know about you, but baking with someone else is always way more fun.
Go ice skating
There are few dates ideas cuter than going ice skating together. And whether it’s your second date or your 200th, ice skating is a classic.
Decorate your house
Spend a day decorating each other’s houses with festive holiday decor while blasting your favorite holiday music.
Save the gifts you would get for each other for another time, but holiday shopping with your significant other is a great way to spend time together in a festive way.
Have an ugly Christmas sweater party
Ugly Christmas sweater parties are undeniably a ton of fun, so consider hosting one with your partner for a fun way to get into the holiday spirit.
Explore a cute town
Find a charming town nearby you that is decorated for the holiday season and spend the day exploring coffee shops, stores, and restaurants.
Play in the snow
Just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you have to give up playing in the snow. Sledding doesn’t get any less fun the older you get!
Cuddle by the fireplace
Just an FYI- try to not be with anyone single when you do this. Nothing says, “I’m in a relationship!” more than cuddling by a fire.
Make gingerbread houses
Make it even more fun by having a contest of who can build a better house.
Go to a light show
Holiday light shows have gotten bigger and better in the past few years and are a unique and fun winter date.
Make holiday cards
Making holiday cards with your significant other is not only lovely for each other, but also for the person who gets the card.
