The Best Winter Date Ideas for A Cold Night

The Best Winter Date Ideas for A Cold Night

  |     |   Lifestyle and Culture

As the winter months settle in, your romantic fall dates centered around apple picking and hiking must come to end. When it’s cold, an indoor date night sounds inevitable, but there are definitely ways to make romantic winter dates (both indoor and outdoor!) something you actually look forward to every year.

Winter date nights can be a night in, like movie nights (try these romantic date night movies), indoor picnics, and game nights. You can also learn something new together just about anywhere online while staying indoors. Sign up for a knitting session, learn a new language, or even tap into your culinary expertise with a cooking class or study the history of wine together. You might even stay indoors for a fun winter date night of bowling, rock climbing, or taking a fitness class together.

But if outdoor activities are definitely still on the table, we love active dates like heading outside for some skiing, playing in the snow, or taking a stroll. And if you’re more into going out on the town for date night, a fun cider tasting or night out at the newest restaurant is sure to do the trick. If winter date night calls for a special event, snag tickets to your local sporting event, theater, jazz club, comedy show, and more. Your special someone will appreciate how thoughtful you are to plan a romantic evening just for the two of you, and you’ll grow closer knowing you got to experience something together.

1Visit a museum

There’s a museum for every kind of interest, so whether you love impressionist art or natural history, grab your babe and explore together. And if you think you’ve seen every museum in town, check your local paper for upcoming special exhibits that may pique your interest and encourage you to return to a frequented place.

2 Have an indoor picnic

Order in takeout, pop a bottle of wine, light some candles, and lay out a blanket for a romantic indoor picnic. For a little extra fun, play your favorite album, put on your favorite movie, or ask some thought-provoking questions to get the night going.

3 Head to the theater

From live plays to your local movie theater, get tickets to see the hottest show in town. Make things interesting and put one person in charge of the show and the other in charge of snacks.

4 Check out the holiday lights

Check your zoo, botanical garden, or other large community areas for light displays, then get tickets (if required) for a fun holiday lights show. Depending on where you live, you can also hop in the car and go for a romantic drive to see the town’s prettiest lights, all from the comfort of your (warm) vehicle.

5 Take a cooking class

In-person and online cooking classes are available for a night of chopping, sautéing, baking, and laughing with your love. From an evening in Tuscany with pasta-making classes, to a romantic steak dinner for two, there’s a class (and menu) to meet your tastebuds. Plus, you’ll have a blast learning something new together.

6 Enjoy the snow

Whether you’re getting your snow gear on to build a snowman together, or you’re grabbing some hot chocolate while you take a stroll in the park, you’ll have the opportunity to get a little silly with your loved one and hold each other close to stay warm if you go on a snowy adventure.

7 Go ice skating

For those a little more athletically inclined, ice skating is a fun way to enjoy the season while also doing something sporty with your boo. Grab your high socks, toasty winter gloves, and some skates for an afternoon to remember. Just don’t forget some hot chocolate in the lodge when you’re done.

8 Get tickets to a game

Buy some tickets to your favorite local football, hockey, or basketball team this season. You’ll have a blast cheering your favorite team on together from somewhere other than your couch.

9 Have a cider tasting

Or wine, beer, or other drink that you find delicious! Head to your local liquor store, brewery, winery, or bar with a wide variety of drinks to try the latest selections. You can even create a bracket for your favorite sips and crown one winner at the end of the night.

10 Take an online class

Is there something you and your special someone have always wanted to learn? From knitting or origami, to learning a new language or more about wine, there’s an online class out there ready for you to learn together, like Jame Suckling’s MasterClass on wine appreciation.
