Winter is the perfect time for falling in love. Imagine cozying up in front of the fireplace drinking hot chocolate and watching movies, or going for a walk in the snow. There are tons of date ideas for you and your significant other.

If you are wondering how to know if a girl likes you, all you have to do is follow one of these date ideas and she will be putty in your hands. Every woman loves romantic dates.

Go holiday shopping together

Get your lists together and hit the malls. Also, go to antique stores. You can bounce your ideas off each other and if you are giving gifts as a couple, it only makes sense to pick them together.


Go for a Drive and Look at Christmas lights

No matter what holiday you celebrate this season, everyone likes to look at the festive lights. Drive around your neighboring towns and listen to holiday music.

Have a Movie Night

One of the most popular winter date ideas is a movie night. Snuggle up in front of the fireplace under a blanket watching your favorite holiday movies. Pop some popcorn, light some candles and pour some bubbly.


Go Ice Skating

Whether you go to an outdoor or indoor rink, ice skating is always romantic and fun. Bundle up and hold hands as you glide across the ice together. Warm up with some hot chocolate after at your favorite coffee shop.

Go for a Carriage Ride

Every woman is keen on a horse-drawn carriage ride. Grab a thermos of hot chocolate and a blanket and whisk her away for a carriage ride.


Build a Snowman

It is one of the best winter date ideas. Building a snowman isn’t just for kids. You can make a themed snowman (or snowwoman) based on your favorite fictional characters. Have a contest to see who builds the best one.

Have a Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunts never go out of style! Make up a silly list of scavenger items for each other and have fun together while trying to solve each other’s lists. You can make it humorous and then throw in something romantic at end of the night that says “I’m falling in love with you.”

Go Bowling

Bowling is always entertaining, but it seems to be even better on a cold winter’s night. Order a pizza or wings and a bottle of wine and have a friendly bowling competition. If you aren’t a fan of bowling, you can opt for indoor mini golf or maybe even an arcade.


Play Video Games

Speaking of video games, why not stay at home and break out the gaming system? Find a game you both enjoy and have a video game night, complete with junk food and beverages….champagne or hot chocolate... or why not both?

Have a Snowball Fight

Like building a snowman, you might think a snowball fight is a little juvenile, right? However, a friendly snowball fight can be quite romantic. Afterwards, you can come inside and get cozy on the couch with a hot beverage.

FAQ: Winter Date Ideas

Whats a good first date in the winter?

Consider staying in and cuddle in front of the TV with some handmade popcorn and a glass of wine. Choose movies that you both appreciate, even if it’s something you’ve already seen a million times, and you will both have a good time.

What is cuffing season?

This term refers to the people who enter partnerships during the coldest months of the year, while not being interested in committing in the first place. The relationships developed during the so-called cuffing season are typically short-lived and terminate as spring arrives.

What should I wear on a date in the winter?

For a stylish monochrome appearance, layer your favorite slip dress over a long-sleeve top in a matching color. Dazzling glitter earrings will allow you to complete this classic look of a blazer dress with over-the-knee boots. The combination of a turtleneck blazer with leather pants and boots is timelessly classic, but it seems extra unique when worn with leather pants and boots.
