Winter has quickly approached. It’s that time of year that, to me, can be dreadful. Most days, I don’t want to leave the house once I am home! It can be easy to come home, sit on the couch, and do nothing else for the rest of the evening.
I often struggle with spending time with my husband during winter because I never know what to do! I have been thinking of some fun date night ideas or just fun things you can do with your spouse or significant other during these cold winter months.
29 Winter Date Ideas
Play in the Snow
We don’t get a lot of snow where I live, but I think the snow can be so much fun! Bundle up and have a blast with your significant other.
Have a snowball fight
I think it would be so much fun to dress warm and have a snowball fight! It would be a fun, outdoor date idea with your significant other. Then, you can warm up with a cup of hot chocolate inside.
Going sledding is something I have ALWAYS wanted to do! We have one major hill in my hometown where everyone goes sledding on the rare occasion that it snows. I have never been!
Try a new restaurant
My husband and I are foodies, so this is the perfect date night for us! We love to try new places to eat and new types of cuisine.
Have a fondue party
Who doesn’t love fondue!? A fondue set like this one will be perfect for a fondue party!
Have a cooking date night
What’s your favorite meal for you and your significant other? Spend an evening cooking your favorite meal, and enjoy a nice quiet evening together while having fun in the kitchen.
Try a new recipe together
Trying new things is always fun! Pick out a new recipe to try and make together.
Roasting marshmallows to make s’mores is always fun! Enjoy some time indoors or outdoors roasting marshmallows with your favorite person!
Decorate for the holidays
This is ALWAYS one of my favorite things to do! I love when my husband helps me decorate our house for Christmas, spring, fall, or any other holiday or time of year.
Cuddle up and watch a movie
Who doesn’t love to cuddle up on a cold night and watch a movie? I know I do!
Write each other love letters
Have you ever wanted to write a love letter to someone? Take an evening with your significant other to write love letters to each other, then read them!
Play board games
One of my favorites! I am a very competitive person, and I LOVE to win! Playing board games is very fun. Want even more competition? Call some friends over for a double date and get the board games going!
Play card games
Grab a deck of cards and pick your favorite card games to play for a nice evening in with your significant other.
Make your favorite hot beverage
Hot chocolate, apple cider, and hot tea are some of my favorite drinks during the winter months! I love to make homemade hot chocolate. Give your favorite hot beverages a try!
Make a dessert
Do you like to bake? Have a fun date night making your favorite desserts together.
Read your favorite books together
Do you love to read and have a favorite book? Pull out your and your significant other’s favorite books and read part of them to each other.
Make a fire inside or outside
Making a fire is always nice. If you don’t have an option for making a fire in the house, make a small fire outside. Grab your favorite drinks and snacks and spend a nice evening relaxing next to the fire.
Tell your favorite stories
Do you have a favorite story from your childhood or a favorite ghost story? Sit around and tell each other your favorite stories!
Bake cookies and have a decorating contest
This idea is VERY fun! Bake cookies and have a decorating contest. Post the end results on social media and let people vote on which cookies they like the best.
Get dressed up and go to a nice restaurant
It’s always nice to get dressed up with each other and go eat some good food. You could try a new restaurant, enjoy some good food, and have good company with your significant other.
Volunteer at a soup kitchen together
Volunteering can bring you so much joy! Grab your significant other and spend an evening taking care of others.
Go shopping for winter gear
Is it cold where you live? We have had some cold weather finally start moving through. Shopping for winter gear can be fun and necessary! Head to the mall one evening when you need something fun to do.
This is something I have never done. If I lived somewhere that got snow regularly, I would love to try it! Get active and have some fun on a skiing date!
Build a snowman
If you live somewhere that gets a lot of snow, this is a must-do! How much fun would it be to build a snowman and to have a snowman-building contest with your significant other? Enjoy the outdoors for a while and see who can build a better snowman.
Go ice skating
Ice-skating is so much fun to me! I love visiting an outdoor rink and enjoying the cool weather and fun atmosphere of the ice-skating rink.
Get dressed up and take pictures
I think it’s fun to get dressed up and document the moment with my husband. If you can talk your significant other into doing this, you’ll have some nice pictures to last a lifetime!
Have a paint party date night
These are so much fun! I have done paint parties several times. You get to indulge in your crafty side while having a good time with your significant other. This is also a great idea for a double date!
Do you like doing crafts? Make an evening of it with your significant other and come up with some fun craft ideas for you to do together.
Take a walk or hike
Spending time in nature is always a good idea! Find somewhere nice to enjoy the day taking a hike, or simply go walking together! Fresh air is good for the soul, and I’m sure you’ll have some good conversation, too!
Listen to Your Favorite Music
Introduce your significant other to some of your favorite music (or some of your favorite throwbacks). I love doing this with my husband. We have so much fun blasting to the past with some of our favorite music from when we were younger.
