Anonymous Advocate: Winter Wonderland
With fall almost behind us and winter fast approaching the weather presents us with ample date ideas with options ranging from snowball fights is that even romantic to hot cocoa and chill, either way romance is in the air with these fun date ideas.
I’m joking but I’m not. Staying at home or a mountain lodge? with that special someone, wrapped up in piles of fuzzy blankets while sipping hot cocoa doesn’t sound half bad. But pairing it with a good Christmassy movie is the cherry on top of the snow covered ice-cream. Netflix is all good and well but if you’re poor like me, the Hallmark channel has got you covered.
While sitting at home watching movies might not always fly with your parents, there stands the option of going out to eat at a restaurant. But thus instigates the age-old question of who pays? The good thing about winter is that you’re already cold and miserable, and if you play your cards right, you’re both too cold to care and your date will happily pay as long as warmth is guaranteed.
- Snowball Fights
This might not be the most romantic of date ideas, but it is fun. And it makes for a great double date idea if you need to do something last minute. Throwing snowballs at each other and cheating to ensure your victory, what more could you ask for? And ending it with chocolate chip cookies and hot cocoa (you can never have too much) makes it perfect.
Are you the significant other that suggests baking as a lame date idea? Of course not, because baking is a great date idea! Let’s skip all the cutesy throwing flour at each other and eating the batter before it’s finished, think more…how much of this can we shove into our mouths before we either get in trouble or die. Plus, you get to clean up afterwards, teaching children the valuable life lesson of taking responsibility for your flour-throwing actions.
Whether it’s raining or snowing, reading by the windowsill with or to each other can be a really relaxing and fun date. Expand your horizons!
Studies have shown that this improves relationships.
And while there are many other date ideas, sometimes keeping it simple just might be the trick to having the best date.
