Wintertime is just around the corner and it’s time to think about winter date ideas. I’m not a fan of being cold, so I am including some indoor winter date ideas.
A wintertime date can be so much fun. While I prefer to stay inside avoiding the cold, I do try to go out and take part in a wintertime date or two with my husband.
Remember after you freeze a bit you get to snuggle and drink hot chocolate! It kinda makes up for the being cold part.
5 Fun Winter Wonderland Date Ideas
1. Basketball Games
Starting off with an indoor date
Locate your local basketball team, grab a pair of tickets and go enjoy a little bball together!
You’re sure to get into the game even if it isn’t your favorite thing. Plus you’ll score big points with your hubby if he’s a sports fan!
2. Ice Skating
Pick up a couple pairs of skates and hit the rink. Holding hands is optional, but I’m sure you’ll find you do quite a bit of it.
If you’re up north be sure to find an outdoor rink or frozen pond, freezing a bit will be worth it. If possible try and visit it at night after everyone else is gone. The roads are usually quiet and there is absolutely nothing like the lone sound of your blades on the ice.
3. Hockey Games
Be ready for some rough guys on the ice for this date.
I’ve been told that the fights are actually rigged? This is an indoor date (yay!), will be quite an adrenaline rusher and probably another hubby favorite.
4. Christmas Tree Cutting
The date fun is finding a tree that is perfect for y’all’s home together. Be sure to grab some hot chocolate on the way there, so it is waiting in the car for when you’ve finally found the one.
This is something that I have wanted to do, but never have had the opportunity. I’m hoping to make this a date that we do this year. We don’t have a fake tree anymore, so it would be perfect!
Grab a pair of sleds or a double to ride together and enjoy cruising the winter wonderland. You might even happen upon some wildlife along the way, so be sure to bring your camera.
I was able to plan a weekend getaway for my husband’s birthday last year, and I rented a double sled for us to use for a day. It was a great time and probably our best weekend away in our relationship.
I’m always looking for new winter date ideas. Please share your favorites with me.
