12 Holiday Date Ideas you Need to Try
A Shopping Date
I am a shopaholic, I couldn’t help it. Plus again, you both have to do it, so you might as well do it together. Turning Christmas shopping into a date is a great way to turn an errand into a fun opportunity for spending time together. Shopping doesn’t have to be stressful, if you’re doing it with someone you like. Have fun with it. Help each other pick out gifts for the people on your respective lists. Make sure to give yourselves adequate time, then hit the mall and immerse yourselves in the craziness.
And of course you can drop hints about what you’d like to get from you significant other by pointing out things that catch your eye. End the date by going home, ordering take out, and wrapping the presents together.
During the holidays, the need for volunteers goes up substantially at food banks, soup kitchens, orphanages and clothing donation centers. Volunteering is a slightly unconventional entry on my list of Holiday Date Ideas. But, ‘tis the season, and taking some time to give back to others will make both you and your date feel good. Plus it helps you see if she/he is the one. You might try spending an afternoon working at a soup kitchen or stocking shelves at the local food bank.
Getting together to do some baking may not be your idea of a good time, but it’s actually a terrific holiday date idea. First, it’s oriented around an activity — as the best dates always are. Second, baking gets the two of you working together, cooperating and strengthening your bond. That’s essential if your date is a new love interest. Good dates include an activity that will make her feel comfortable and connected to you. And the best part about baking on a date is that it doesn’t even matter if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Just grab the ingredients at the grocery store and give it your best shot. If your recipe turns out well, you’ll also have some delicious holiday grub. If your attempt at baking Christmas cookies is a spectacular failure, you’ll both have a hilarious story to share.
- ICE SKATING
Provided you’re looking at a white Christmas, you might entice a girl or guy outside for some fun in the snow. Take your date outside and build a snowman, make snow angels or start a snowball fight. Taking her ice skating is another great holiday date idea. Show her your playful, adventurous side. Ice-skating is another option for an entertaining outdoor date.
Emotionally charged moments between you and your date create memories and increase bonding. The adrenaline rush from speeding down a snowy hill can jump-start your relationship. When the first snow covers the ground, grab your date and your sled, find a quality hill, and take him/her for the ride of their life (for those of you in warmer climes, there’s always ice blocking!). Finish the date by warming up next to a fire. Oh yeah.
Decorating the tree is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. That’s why it’s another one of my 12 Holiday Date Ideas you Need to Try. So, pour yourself some eggnog, put on your favorite Christmas music and start hanging ornaments. Whether you’re decorating your tree, her tree or a shared tree, you’re certain to have a good time. You can even make picking out the tree part of the date.
A Christmas party is another one of my 12 Holiday Date Ideas you Need to Try. Obviously, you can invite a date to come with you to a friend’s place or to an office party. However, you should also think about hosting a party yourself. You have a couple of options here: You can invite your friends over to kick off the holiday season or, alternatively, you might fill the gap between Christmas and New Year’s with a post-Christmas party or a Boxing Day bash. After spending three or four consecutive days with their families, your friends and your date will probably be thankful for a night away from home.
Christmas Movie Night
Everyone has a favorite Christmas movie. Whether yours features Chevy Chase or a Claymation reindeer, you should invite your special someone over to partake in a traditional Christmas movie night. Spend the night in with a cup of hot chocolate and a couple of your favorites. Holiday movies not only put you in the Christmas spirit, but they provide excellent opportunities for cuddling up to one another on the couch. Have a christmas movie marathon. Stuck on what movie to watch? Well I got you, Here is What to Watch this Christmas (Previews Included) Courtesy of Blogmas Day 3.
New year’s Date
Everybody wants to have plans on New Year’s. Besides Valentine’s Day, it’s the biggest date night of the year. That makes women especially inclined to accept date offers, if they don’t already have plans. If you don’t have a party to invite her to, take her out to your favorite bar or to the communal celebration in your city. Check your local listings for fireworks or a ball drop. Then, just make sure you’re standing next to her when the clock strikes midnight.
Ginger house building Competition
Make the date more interesting by injecting some competition in the mix. Ginger houses are great to make and if you and your significant others want to have some holiday fun, definitely give this a go. Hint Hint, don’t take it all serious, its supposed to be a fun date activity.
Classic Candle Light dinner.
Don’t be afraid to let a restaurant do the heavy lifting when it comes to a perfect dinner. You can still make it special with your own thoughtful touches. Do your research ahead of time to find a restaurant that decorates with glimmering candles. It’s a surefire way to create ambiance. Try gifting your date a gorgeous bouquet on the way to dinner, then using it as a centerpiece when you arrive. Order the most romantic-sounding foods and a great bottle of red!
