8 Winter Date Ideas

We love winter in this house. Though we like it even more when it snows. And with winter being here, what better way to enjoy the season than with some date night ideas! Here are 8 of my favorite ideas!

1. Hot Chocolate Date : my personal favorite! Spend the evening bouncing from coffee house to coffee house trying out different hot chocolates. *Make it cheaper/at home : Set up a hot chocolate bar in the kitchen. Have different items to mix in with your hot chocolate (syrup, honey, flavored liquor, or regular liquor) and don't forget the toppings (chocolate chips, peppermint, caramel, powdered sugar, whipped cream, etc)

2. Ice Skating : Chattanooga added an outdoor ice rink this season, so this is much easier for us. If your city, or a few towns over has an ice rink, take the night and go ice skating.

3. People Watch : This is something C and I do all year round. Go to your favorite restaurant, or even a local mall. While you are sitting there, just people watch. We love to make up stories for people.

4. Take Cooking Classes : Not only will you be warm because you are inside, but you will be learning something together. *Make it cheaper/at home : Instead of taking cooking classes, find a recipe and commit to making it together at home. The big bonus to this is a nice romantic candle lit dinner after all your cooking efforts. 

5. Netflix Date : This is my favorite way to get in a date night when we have a super busy week. Pick a theme for movies like a series, movies that happen in a certain city, summer time movies, action movies, etc, so that way it is always a little different. Don't do this very often or you can get stuck in a routine. Make it extra special. Sit on the same couch, pop popcorn, share a blanket, or light the fire place if you have one.

6. Take A Snow Day :  If you are one of the lucky ones who gets some snow, take advantage of it. Get outside and have a snowball fight, build a snowman, make snow angels. You are being active during this date, so that is a big bonus!

7. Build A Fort : Remember when you were a kid and built forts inside? Why not built a fort now? We did this one Valentine's day, and it was my favorite. You can combine this and the Netflix date, or spend some time just talking. Talk about your future, your hopes and dreams, anything.

8. Go To A Bookstore : Something about bookstores and winter just screams romantic to me. Big chains are fine, but if you live in a town where there is a small bookstore, go there. It is a little more cozy in my opinion. Spend the evening finding books for yourself, or make it interesting and pick out a book for each other, one they normally wouldn't read.

What are some of your favorite winter date ideas?
