I hope your winter is off to a great start! It’s a great time to get cozy with your honey and these date ideas will help you connect and heat things up when the temps get cold.

In this post, you’ll find ideas for creative and romantic winter date ideas, perfect for couples looking to spice up date night.

There’s something for everyone, whether you want an outdoor adventure or a relaxing indoor activity.

So grab a hot cocoa, snuggle up with your honey and get ready to plan your perfect winter date!

1. Read Aloud to Each Other

Take turns reading a book out loud, making voices for all the characters. You could also cuddle up and listen to an audiobook, but reading to each other is more interactive and can be so romantic.

This one gives me classic Beauty and the Beast vibes. Love it!

2. Cuddle Up by the Fireplace

If you don’t have a fireplace you can pull up a fireplace video and snuggle up under a cozy blanket for warmth. This idea can easily be combined with another to maximize your romantic time together.

3. Make a Blanket Fort

When was the last time you made a blanket fort? This fun idea will let you get cozy as you snuggle up inside.

This blanket is super big, soft, and stretchy, perfect for your fort!

4. Decorate for the Holidays

Turn on a playlist with your favorite festive tunes and sing along as you transform your home into a winter wonderland.

5. Make Hot Cocoa from Scratch

Most cocoa packages include directions, but I love these options from Kayla Chandler. So yummy!

6. Bake Christmas Cookies

Each of you can pick your favorite cookie to make together. Just make sure you have all your ingredients ready to go.

7. Decorate Sugar Cookies

8. Make a Gingerbread House

You can do this from scratch, or grab a kit.

9. Take a Drive to Look at Christmas Lights

We have a few drive-thru light displays at local parks nearby or you can find some amazing displays in your neighborhood.

10. Try Out a New Coffee Shop

This is a great way to try out and support local small businesses with delicious results.

11. Watch Your Favorite Christmas Movies

Or just your favorite movies in general, it’s your choice!

If you’re stuck, this post has over 50 Christmas movies, and this one has movies, tv shows, and specials available on Netflix.

12. Paint Along with a Bob Ross Video

I haven’t done this yet, but I think it would be so much fun.

Now to convince the hubs…

13. Go Ice Skating

Not that you need an excuse to hold hands, but skating together can be so fun.

Do make sure if you’re renting skates and have a really tall hubby that they have his size.

14. Try Curling

You might need to do a little research to find a place that offers curling, but it would make for a unique and memorable experience.

Wear warm clothes since you’ll be on the ice, and follow up with your favorite warm beverages.

15. Go to a Zoo Lights Festival

See if your local zoo has a light festival that you can attend. It’s fun walking around together enjoying all the decorations.
