Winter is here!! We can’t wait for the cooler weather to arrive, but when it does, we’re ready for summer. Still, there is so much to love about this time of year and so many things to do and explore with your partner.
If you’re looking for different cozy dates this winter, consider this your go-to guide.
Stay in for a movie night
Is there anything better than watching a wonderful movie while cuddling up with your special someone? Don’t simply put on the same old boring movie and call it a night! Date night should be something special. Choose a theme with your partner, then organise a meal around it to give it meaning. With a little extra effort, Netflix and chill will actually feel special again.
Cook a meal together
Working together while cooking fosters a sense of “we’re in this togetherness.” This demonstrates your concern for one another and reinforces the idea that the two of you are a team. Therefore, put on your matching aprons and get messy as you work together to complete a cooking task. The collaborative effort as well as the delectable supper will pay off.
Wine taste at a local winery
When it’s freezing outside, wine keeps us warm, and when it seems like we haven’t seen the sun in weeks, wine revives our cheeks’ colour. Having said that, if enjoying wine at home seems more like a regular habit than a special occasion, we advise you to visit a nearby winery and pick up some tips while you sip for a brand-new shared experience.
Light a bonfire
Light a bonfire together in your backyard and hang some string lights, roast some s’mores, and cuddle up under a soft blanket are all essential ingredients for a beautiful date night.
Go on a Hike
Even if you don’t consider yourself to be super outdoorsy, going on a winter hike with your significant other could change your mind. After all, a gorgeous view shared with the person you love is worth it, right? You can even pack a picnic to enjoy halfway through.
Go for a picnic
Even though a traditional picnic is best enjoyed outside, winter may not be the best season to eat sandwiches and fruit on the front lawn. Though hanging in the living room lacks the invigorating sunshine that we typically associate with a picnic, you won’t miss the outdoors on this cozy date.
Spread out on a throw blanket and nosh on all your favorites. Don’t forget to pack a bottle of wine or Champagne!
Visit the Holiday Lights
Every town has that one street decked out in holiday lights, so why not take a scenic drive with your partner and admire all the hard work that went into your neighbors’ displays?
Play Video Games
If you are better at button-smashing, break out the old console and remote controls. Video games tend to be less time-consuming, but they require more technical understanding than board games, and we encourage you to play to your strengths.
Take turns playing songs
There is something undeniably intimate and romantic about playing someone your favorite songs. Alternating playlists on a date, especially if you’re generally shy to share things about yourself will help you express your feelings. Do you have a specific memory attached to one? Does a certain song remind you of your date? Crank it up.
Walk around a local holiday market
A simple stroll through a local holiday market is perfect for any couple — new or otherwise. It’s an excellent option for people who don’t drink alcohol, anyone looking for an inexpensive date or someone looking for an easy out if their date goes poorly. This will work out best for you.
