25 Winter Date Ideas That Aren’t Dinner and a Movie

Sharing is caring!

The winter months can be challenging to want to go out and do things. It is so much easier to stay inside where it is cozy and warm and you don’t have to deal with snow and freezing temperatures. But just because it is cold outside doesn’t mean you should neglect your social life especially your dating life.

Winter dates can be fun and exciting and those cold temps can lead to extra snuggles and closeness. Wink wink!! 🙂 So instead of taking her out for dinner and a movie for the millionth time, here are some fresh winter date ideas that are sure to win her over and be a ton of fun!

Take Advantage Of The Winter Weather With These Outdoor Dates

  1. Ice Skating
People ice skating. A good winter date idea.

Lace-up those skates and take a few laps around the rink hand in hand. Ice skating is not something you would normally gravitate towards any other time of the year so this winter date idea will be a treat because you don’t do it that often.

  1. Sledding

Sledding brings you back to your youth and who doesn’t have a fun sledding story or two? Buy a cheap sled and take a ride down the hill together. Remember to hold on tight to each other!

  1. Winter hike

 Imagine the scenic views all covered in white powdery snow. The beauty of nature is sure to please and be an enjoyable date idea.

Rather Stay Warm? Here Are Indoor Dating Ideas

  1. Brewery Tour

Brewery tours can be very entertaining. You can learn a little about how the beer is made and then enjoy a pint together. If you have trouble coming up with what to talk about, this date idea allows for some easy conversation starters.

  1. Wine tasting

A wine tasting is along the same lines as a brewery tour but in my opinion a little more elegant and formal. If your lady prefers wine, plan ahead and bring a little picnic basket with some snacks like cheese and crackers, dark chocolate, and split a bottle of wine.  

  1. Grab a hot chocolate and dessert

Who doesn’t love a cup of hot chocolate and a dessert on a cold winter night? In my opinion, this is one example of classic cute winter date ideas that never go out of style.

  1. Sporting Event

Live sporting events are always a good choice. They are entertaining and can bring you closer together if you like the same teams or can create a flirty banter between the two of you if you are opposing fans.

  1. Couple massage/spa

Now, this type of date is one I recommend for couples. You want to be comfortable with someone if you are going to be wrapped in just a towel and getting pampered together. 

  1. Arcade
Skeeball machines at an arcade. Arcades are a fun date idea in the colder months.

Arcades can be just plain fun. An arcade is a very light-hearted and playful type of date. So if you are looking for something that keeps it light, this is a good choice.

  1. Winter festivals

Check out what your town or surrounding towns have to offer for winter festivals. A lot of towns will have fairs or festivals. It can be fun to walk around looking at the crafts and sample some treats together.
