With all the hype of the holiday’s, it can sometimes be stressful to try and fit in date nights with your significant other. I have compiled a list of ideas that can still bring the holiday spirit while having fun and hanging out with each other.
FOR CHRISTMAS SEASON DATE NIGHTS:
- Go bowling and wear your most tackiest sweater and if you’re feeling a bit daring, whomever loses, must sing Rudolph the red- nosed reindeer for the crowd.
- Have a Christmas movie marathon, and if you are feeling even more to get in the spirit, challenge yourself to watching a Christmas movie every night together before jetting off to bed. (This is perfect to do with the kids as well!)
- Drive around and look at Christmas lights, with Christmas music on the radio and Hot Chocolate in the cup holders to keep you warm.
- Bake Christmas cookies together, my favorites are mint chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, and peanut butter. (Kid friendly)
- Get your significant other your favorite holiday drink at your local coffee shop or even Starbucks and then walk around and window shop.
- Have a picnic outside in the cold and cuddle up next to each other and talk about your favorite holiday memories as a child.
- Take a cooking class together, and bonus points if you take some sort of holiday cooking class to impress your friends and family on Christmas Day.
- Have someone put together a basket full of secret ingredients (preferebly christmas related) and give them to you and then have a Chopped competition in the kitchen and see who’s dish will stay and who’s will be chopped! (This even works for fall date night ideas).
FOR FALL DATE NIGHT IDEAS:
- Learn how to make candy corn together.
- Check out this awesome recipe: http://www.thekitchenismyplayground.com/2015/10/homemade-candy-corn.html
- Carve pumpkins together from a pumpkin patch you visited earlier that day. To keep it interesting, make it a theme and see who can come up with the best pumpkin. My favorite are super heroes. I like to see who can make the best Darth Vader 😉 (Kid friendly)
- Go to a Corn Maze
- Learn how to make apple cider. (kid friendly)
- Volunteer to help feed the homeless for thanksgiving. This will bring yall closer together and make the relationship stronger!
- Go hiking and see home many different colored leaves you can collect.
- Make homemade pies together and to make it even more interesting, have a contest on who can make the best apple pie!
These are just a few of my ideas that I have thought of throughout the day. Feel free to leave comments or your ideas and keep the list going. I know I will be trying a lot of these with my husband, as I am already trying to get him into the holiday spirit.
Thanks again for following my blog! I can’t wait to update you all on the fun and exciting things that are thrown my way in my life as a RN married to a military man!
