1. Watch a romantic Christmas movie
Isn’t this the loveliest option when discussing Christmas date ideas? We think it is! One of the most fun things to do when it's cold and miserable outside is to cuddle up with the person you are dating, a bowl of popcorn or perhaps a bottle of wine and settle down to watch a classic Christmas movie together. You can either go traditional with something like 'It's a Wonderful Life', 'A Christmas Carol' or 'Miracle on 34th Street', or perhaps opt for something modern but with just as much of a Christmassy feel, say, 'Bridget Jones's Diary', 'Love Actually' or the very funny 'Elf'. But choose carefully - if things go well it could end up being 'our movie'. Spend cosy time together with this one of the most romantic Christmas ideas.
2. Bake Christmas cookies
Cooking might not immediately strike you as the most romantic activity in the world, but just picture the scene - the warmth of the stove, the sweet aromas of cinnamon with ginger will magnify your and your partner’s emotions. And, if nothing happens between the two of you, at least you end up with something to show for it - a delicious plate of cookies or Christmas cakes! Or, if it goes the other way, just do not get too carried away and forget those cookies are still in the oven.
3. Wrap gifts together
Wrapping Christmas gifts is a fun way to get to know a little bit more about your dating partner and the practical activity takes away some of the pressure of a regular question/answer discussion, which can seem more like an interview. You will find out loads of fascinating things about your date's nearest and dearest - what people buy others as gifts can be very revealing - and you will find each gift can be a real conversation starter. And, once again, if the date doesn't go to plan, at least you will end up with the job of wrapping all your Christmas presents done and dusted.
4. Decorate the tree together
Looking for the most wonderful Christmas date ideas for couples? This has to be on our list! Decorating the tree is another fun way to prepare for Christmas together, and a natural conversation starter where you are likely to find out a lot about your dating partner's past Christmases as the memories come flooding back with all the old baubles and tinsel. Of course, for a job such as this, classic Christmas tunes tinkling in the background are called for, along with a delicious Christmassy drink like port or sherry and some yummy Christmas nibbles to keep you going. Then just sit back with your drinks and enjoy the beautiful thing you've created as a couple.
Skating is a traditional winter pastime, and is perfect for budding romance. There are plenty of opportunities to dazzle your date with your moves, or fall "accidentally" into your date's arms. Skating rinks are open in various locations around the world so spotting one is not going to be difficult.
Skiing, like skating, is a traditional winter pastime. Now there might not be many options when it comes to skiing in temperate countries but if you can find a place, the date is going to be all the more special.
7. Build a Gingerbread house
It is commonly said, couples who make a Gingerbread house together stay together! But what if you are not good at it? Worry not, pre-made and ready-to-go gingerbread mixes are available in supermarkets which can be ordered, or purchased depending on how much quantity you require.
8. Charity event
There's nothing like doing good deeds for others to get your Christmas buzz going. Sharing quality activities is a great way to really get to know each other in a good light, and nothing says "heart of gold" like volunteer charity work.
9. Hit the flea market
Christmas flea markets are ever so popular and not to exaggerate, very romantic. These winter markets have food stalls, gorgeous shows and other entertainment pieces scheduled and shopping can be done in abundance. Also there is a benefit of hitting these flea markets, and that happens to be a very pocket-friendly place to shop at! Going on a date to shop for presents is a delightful alternative to the gift wrapping date idea. Together, you can buy Christmas gifts for one another, as well as for each other's families and dear ones!
10. Go flower picking
This last activity does not necessarily have to be about picking Christmas flowers. The idea is to be closer to Mother Nature. If you are going on a trail with the idea of collecting certain flowers, certain plants or leaves even.
A relationship is really made up of memories. Communicate with each other what kind of memories you want to look back on and only then plan the date night for your better half. And ultimately, the magic of Christmas lies in the love you share and the memories you create.
As we've explored these ten romantic Christmas ideas, ranging from cosy movie nights to adventurous outdoor activities, it's evident that the holiday season offers countless opportunities to create unforgettable moments with your lovely one.
