Winter Date Ideas
The warm days of summer provide the perfect conditions for exciting romance and fun outdoor date ideas, but as the seasons change and the winter winds pick up, many couples may find it more difficult to come up with exciting date ideas when its cold, rainy, and, sometimes, snowy outside. Here are five winter date ideas to help keep those warm feelings between you and your sweetie burning even when it isnít warm outside.
Winter Date Idea #1: Ice Skating
Wrap up in scarves and gloves and take your partner to the local ice rink for some fun winter-time exercise. Due to the cold weather, you and your loved one may have given up some of the outdoor date activities that would bring you together during warmer months. Donít give up on outdoor activities just because its winter. Ice skating can be romantic (holding hands, picking her up when she falls) as well as great outdoor exercise.
Winter Date Idea #4: Holiday Gift Shopping
Holiday gift shopping can be a stressful activity, but it doesnít have to be. You can turn your holiday gift shopping into a fun couples activity. The key is to keep it light hearted. Plan a day of shopping in your favorite mall or shopping center, with a lunch break in between in order to sit and unwind a bit. Go with the intention of browsing around for gifts, picking up things here or there - donít go with an agenda to find everything you are looking forÖthis could lead to stress or anxiety. Make sure you plan your shopping date far in advance of when you will be giving the gifts, so that you can take your time while you and your partner look around.
Winter Date Idea #5: Have a Snow Fight
Wrap yourself up in a heavy jacket, lace up your snow boots, and venture outside into the snow for the day. You and your loved one can spend the day building snowmen, making snow angels, and having playful snowball fights. Enjoy the snow while you can, it doesnít stick around all year, after all. Itís a great way to get exercise and afterwards you can head indoors for some hot cocoa.
Remember, just because the weather turns cold, it doesnít mean your dates have to loose their warmth. You can have a fun and romantic time with your partner even when itís snowy, stormy, or icy. Take advantage of the winter weather with fun in the snow and ice skating, keep warm in front of the fire, and participate in holiday activities like shopping and Christmas light gazing and your winter is sure to be full of warm and happy memories with your sweetheart.
