The holidays are a great time to spend time with the person you love. There’s always something to do and is always more romantic because of the holiday season.

Maybe this is the first time you’ve been in a relationship for the holidays or you’ve been with your man for more time than you’d like to admit. With either one, sometimes it can be difficult to find ways to make the best of the season.

Here are some holiday date ideas for you and your man:

1. Movie night

Movie night is always a good idea, especially when it’s too cold to go outside or you just want an excuse to cuddle up with your man.

There are so many movies you can watch. It gives you a chance to just hang out without having to spend a bunch of money and saves you the effort of having to go out and do something.

Here are some of the best Christmas movies to watch with your man this holiday season.

2. Cook

Christmas – as well as being a time for joy, presents and carols, it’s also a time to enjoy wonderful food. Mince pies, turkey and stuffing, chocolate truffles and mulled wine…so do it. Cook together!

There are few things more satisfying than serving up a meal you’ve cooked together.

Whether you’re a novice cook who’s just getting to grips with the kitchen or are a seasoned chef looking for some new inspiration, these four cookbooks are sure to bring you joy and fun.

There’s nothing better than snuggling up with a hot drink next to the fireplace in winter. Here are some hot drink recipes to enjoy with your man.

3. Bake

If you don’t know how to bake, then this will be extra fun. Trying to figure out what you’re doing is half of the fun of the date.

Maybe you just bought a bunch of store-bought dough and are trying to make it, or you can try to go completely homemade and see what happens. If you’re good at baking, then try to see what different kinds of desserts you can make together.

Something else you could do is decorate a gingerbread house together. It can be silly and messy. A little competition to see how can make the most beautiful, or crazy, gingerbread house is never boring. Or you could even just make one together.

You’ll love these get-ahead dishes that can be made now and stored in the freezer ready for the festive season.

5. Ice skating

This is as perfect time as any to go out and make fools of yourself on the ice. If you’re great at ice skating, then it gives you the opportunity to show off your skills.

If you’re not as coordinated, then it gives you a chance to hold on tightly to your man and have fun with it. There are plenty of places to go, and you can have more excuses to warm each other up after. It’s the perfect date night if you don’t want to stay in again.

6. Driving to see Christmas lights

This is perfect because you can do this no matter if it’s cold or not. It’ll be fun to drive around aimlessly with your boyfriend, jamming out to Christmas music, and seeing the gorgeous lights.

It may not sound as entertaining, but I promise you, you will not be disappointed. There are so many people who go all out with their lights, it’ll really make you wonder how it’s even possible they got the lights up there. If you’re lucky, you can even find a light show held by your town.

7. Christmas parades

Christmas parades are always a ton of fun. You can just spend the entire time walking around with some hot chocolate and competing to see who can get the most candy canes.

Okay, that may just be me, but it is very fun. Christmas parades are always a ton of fun. You can just spend the entire time walking around with some hot chocolate and competing to see who can get the most candy canes.

You’ll be able to get up real close to your man because of the cold and focus on the excitement going on around you.

8. Christmas tree farm

Christmas tree farms are always so much fun to go to. Even if you aren’t looking to buy a tree, you can still run around looking to see who can find the best tree.

There are usually more activities for you to do around the farm, so you’ll never be bored. There are always different wreaths and opportunities to get that perfect couple picture for the holidays.

9. Go shopping together

We all need to go holiday shopping, so why not just go together? You will be able to help each other out and look for the perfect gifts for your friends and family, especially if you’re stuck and can’t find anything for that one person.

Just make sure you don’t accidentally tell each other what you got for each other. Or do, if that’s what you want. The mall is going to be crowded and stressful, but you can always find a way to make it fun with your man.

10. Walk around the town/city

There are always things to look at and do around the holidays around town. You can find a small place go to dinner that you’ve never seen before and you can even finish up some last-minute shopping.

It doesn’t matter what you do together, it’s all about the time you get to spend with each other. No matter how many times you’ve walked around or how well you know the city, there will be something new you stumble upon and can make it such a great night. Go out and get coffee together or get food. Whatever you choose will be fun.

11. Volunteer

There are so many people who don’t have nearly as much as we do. Times get hard, especially around the holidays, so it’s always such a good idea to devote your time to other people.

There are so many different places to volunteer, a soup kitchen, a homeless shelter, anywhere, really. No matter what you decide to do to help, it’s going to change someone’s holiday.

Even if you just go out and buy a couple of things for children who won’t be getting presents, it helps. Every little bit helps when you have nothing.

Charity work starts at home. Have you really called your aunt enough? Sure, she might be a pain, but don’t you think some love will brighten her day? How about visiting some elderly relatives you know would love to see you—those who might be a little bit lonely?

Maybe it’s about time you did something nice for no reason for a friend, lover or family member.   Read on and  find more ideas.

The holidays are a time to be together and enjoy your time with each other. Make the most of it with these date ideas.
