During the holidays, people are usually too busy to go on a date. People are usually spending that time shopping, wrapping presents, throwing parties, etc. How does one make time for a Christmas date? Are there any ways to turn the average Christmas chore into a fun Christmas date? This Christmas make a promise to your sweetie to have more Christmas dates and to spend more time having fun during the holidays rather than rushing to get everything done. I hope these Christmas date ideas help you to enjoy the holidays a bit more and help you to remember to take time to spend with your significant other.
Decorate the tree together. Decorating the tree may seem like a chore, but when you do it with someone you love, it can be turned into a wonderful Christmas date. This Christmas, ask your sweetie to help you decorate the tree. Have fun playing with the tinsel and garland, maybe wrapping each other in it and pulling your sweetie in for a kiss.
Watch a romantic Christmas movie. This is a nice, relaxing Christmas date. There are so many romantic Christmas movies to choose from. If you want a classic movie, choose It’s a Wonderful Life. If you’re looking for a comedy pick either Bridget Jones’s Diary or Love Actually, both are wonderful and quite funny.
Prepare a Christmas dinner for just the two of you. I don’t mean making a huge Christmas dinner for your Christmas date. What I do mean, is to prepare a small dinner with items such as a ham slice, mashed potatoes, Stove Top, corn, and some rolls. Pick up a prepared dessert from your local bakery to make this Christmas date even easier.
Prepare a sweets buffet. This could be combined with the romantic movie Christmas date. A sweets buffet is a great Christmas date because everyone is happier when they’re around wonderful sweets. This will help take the edge off of the holidays and will allow you to relax and enjoy each other’s company. I suggest picking up some eggnog, butter cookies, chocolate-covered cherries, and any other sweets you and your significant other enjoy.
Make cookies together. This is a wonderful Christmas date. I and my boyfriend actually did this on our first Christmas together. The cookies didn’t turn out so great, but it was so much fun. The cookies aren’t the important thing here; it’s spending time together that’s important. You could select a simple recipe for sugar cookies or you could even buy pre-made cookie dough and roll it out and cut it with cookie cutters. After the cookies are done and have cooled, make your Christmas date more interesting by decorating the cookies. It’s always fun to see how different people decorate their cookies.
Go Christmas shopping together. Turn this chore into a Christmas date. Shopping during the holidays can be a real headache, but if you go shopping with your sweetie, the experience becomes less dreadful. You can go through the store picking out gifts for your friends and family and you will probably get ideas of what to buy each other along the way.
Wrap Christmas gifts together. This is another fun Christmas date and best of all, it’s free. Grab all the presents you need to wrap and get your supplies. Put everything on the floor and wrap gifts as you talk and maybe watch holiday movies as well.
Listen to Christmas music together. This is a Christmas date that can be done almost anywhere. Also, this is a Christmas date that can be combined with several other of the ideas listed above. Listen to all the classics, listen to fun Christmas songs, and most importantly, listen to slow Christmas songs so you can dance by the light of the Christmas tree.
