Hello, lovely readers!
Don’t you just love the holiday season? Decorating, gift shopping, and spending time with loved ones truly make this the most magical time of the year. And why not channel that sense of wonder into your dating life? I created this list of holiday ideas to do just that! Read on to learn how to have the most romantic December.
15 Holiday Ideas:
1. Curl up in a cozy blanket by the fire and drink hot cocoa.
Warm and cozy? Test. Chocolate? Test. Cuddle up with your honey? Right.
2. Go shopping at the Christmas Market.
There’s nothing more magical than seeing the glitz and glamor of the season!
3. Burn your competitive side by hosting a snowball game at your local park.
Forget the gym – this is the best workout for your arms!
4. Drive through a neighborhood with a great light show.
This is one of my favorite childhood memories and I love sharing it with my SO.
5. Bake some lovely Christmas cookies.
Get creative by adorning them with custom designs using cream and sprinkles.
6. Grab a Christmas-themed cup of joe.
Who says coffee can’t be sweet? Warm up your honey with a hot cup of Christmas coffee. My recommendation is anything that contains chocolate and mint.
7. Volunteer at a soup kitchen.
Volunteering to help the less fortunate is wonderful, and why not share it with someone you love? When the shift is over, the two of you will feel closer than ever.
8. Sing your favorite Christmas carols.
Who doesn’t love a little karaoke? Fa la la la la into their hearts by singing your favorite songs. Bonus points if you add some fun jumps to go along with the fun.
9. Watch a Christmas movie from Hallmark.
If you’ve heard of Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas, you know how many great yet thrilling movies this amazing company produces every year. Silly text, overused gazebo, the only kiss at the end of every movie. What’s not to love? Embrace your sweetheart and prepare for a night full of laughter and heartwarming stories.
10. Decorate each other’s homes for the holidays.
You know what they say. Two birds, one love.
11. Take off your ski boots and go skiing.
You’ll smile from ear to ear, even if you feel sore the next day.
12. Go ice skating.
If you feel comfortable, feel free to show off some cool moves. Don’t forget to wear a cute outfit! Anyone covered their ears with faux fur and pastel skates?
13. Decorate the pine tree.
Whether it’s a Christmas tree or a Hanukka bush, you’re in a world of fun!
14. Take a free cooking class by following a YouTube tutorial.
Try your hand at grilling some pleasantly delicious food, or elevate things with a fun holiday-themed cocktail. The options are endless.
15. Make a hot chocolate bomb.
Who doesn’t love making hot chocolate bombs during the 2020 lockdown? They brought a spark of joy in a time of so little. It’s one of my favorite memories and I can’t wait to share that joy with my SO this year.
Ideas for adding days:
16. Cruise under the twinkling lights at the River Walk in San Antonio, TX.
This activity may be specific to my hometown, but I have to recommend it as it is one of the most iconic Texas vacation activities. It’ll give you all the holiday feel – all for about $20!
I hope you enjoy my holiday ideas! This is an interesting article to write. I can’t wait to do all this with my SO this year (no snow because of Texas).
