Fall /Christmas Date Night Ideas

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.


  1. 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.
  2. 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!)
  3. Drive around and look at Christmas lights, with Christmas music on the radio and Hot Chocolate in the cup holders to keep you warm.
  4. Bake Christmas cookies together, my favorites are mint chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, and peanut butter. (Kid friendly)
  5. Get your significant other your favorite holiday drink at your local coffee shop or even Starbucks and then walk around and window shop.
  6. Have a picnic outside in the cold and cuddle up next to each other and talk about your favorite holiday memories as a child.
  7. 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.
  8. 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).


  1. Learn how to make candy corn together.
    1. Check out this awesome recipe: http://www.thekitchenismyplayground.com/2015/10/homemade-candy-corn.html
  2. 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)
  3. Go to a Corn Maze
  4. Learn how to make apple cider. (kid friendly)
  5. Volunteer to help feed the homeless for thanksgiving.  This will bring yall closer together and make the relationship stronger!
  6. Go hiking and see home many different colored leaves you can collect.
  7. 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!
