All I Want For Christmas is You – How to Explore Love This Christmas
Christmas is, without a doubt, the most lovely time of the year—especially if you share it with someone important. (I mean, with all the mistletoe and all, you have plenty of reasons to kiss your significant other.)
Even if you’re single as the holidays approach, this might be a great time to meet up with your dating app matches. Mostly because of everything! The! Date! Suggestions!
So, if you’re looking for something other than Zoom Christmas parties to do during the next several months, we’ve got you covered. These 31 date ideas, which range from charity opportunities to trips to extremely wicked nights in, will ensure you have a very merry Christmas.
1. Try Ice Skating
Ice skating may not be the most inventive winter activity, but it’s a classic for a reason. You can do it in almost any city in the country, and you get to hold hands while trying to stay balanced on the rink, then massage each other’s aching ankles while laughing over who had the most dramatic fall.
2. Go Caroling
The holidays are the perfect time to embrace your inner Mariah Carey, whether you’re a songbird or a listener. Spend some time choosing your favorite holiday songs and practicing them, then go out and spread some Christmas cheer in your neighborhood. Wear a mask to avoid spreading sickness around your cul-de-sac, and go to the houses with the more ornate decorations (so you know they’d be down for a spontaneous concert).
3. Christmas Carol Karaoke Sing-Off is Cool
If singing in front of strangers (or your neighbors, who are most likely strangers) isn’t your thing, try this: Have a Christmas carol karaoke night at home with your friends and family. On YouTube, you can find instrumental renditions of your favorite Christmas carols, so grab your phone or laptop and start singing. (Perhaps after a few too many cocktails.)
4. Binge Some Netflix Christmas Flicks
Whether you adore Netflix Christmas specials or despise them, you have to agree that binge-watching them is rather addictive. This holiday season, binge-watch all of your favorite classics with your Christmas bae. (This includes the film in which Vanessa Hudgens plays various roles.)
5. Go On A Hot Cocoa Crawl
Find a couple neighborhood patios with heated seats and settle in for a night of hot cocoa sampling. Try a variety of hot chocolates and give each one a rating. You may even add up your points and choose a winner at the end of the night.
6. Volunteer At A Soup Kitchen
Whatever is going on in the world, there will always be those who may benefit from a helping hand. Make your Christmas date night a night of giving back to the community. Volunteer at a soup kitchen or purchase food for those in need.
7. Host A Gingerbread House Decorating Party
I all, is it truly Christmas if you don’t put your best gingerbread home decorating abilities to the test? Prepare all of the components ahead of time and turn it into a decorating contest: The winner gets first crack at the delectable designs.
8. Have A Christmas Card Photo Shoot
You don’t have to employ a professional photographer to shoot images for your Christmas cards (but, like, hi, you totally can). All you’ll need is a tripod and a lot of creativity. Spend your Christmas with your partner capturing cute, goofy, or sensual Christmas photos. And if you create a masterpiece (which you will), you’ll have something wonderful to present to family and friends… simply bury yourself at the bottom of your drawer for the rest of your life.
