12 WINTER DATE IDEAS FOR ANY CITY

My (early) Christmas gift to you: 12 winter date ideas to suffice all your dreamy Christmas wishes for the next 3 days leading up until Christmas, and all the winter days that follow.

#1 OUTDOOR SKATING

This is definitely one of my favourite winter dates to go on. I like to go at least once in the city under all the Christmas lights, and once in the mountains, because nothing beats this backdrop.

#2 BUILD A COZY FORT AND WATCH ALL THE CUTE CHRISTMAS MOVIES

Everyone loves a good Christmas movie. You can’t go wrong with a Christmas classic, a Hallmark special, or a cheesy Netflix original.

#3 VISIT A CHRISTMAS MARKET

Christmas markets are so great for getting into the Christmas spirit and maybe even getting a little Christmas shopping done while you’re there!

#4 BAKE CHRISTMAS COOKIES IN YOUR PJs

Why not get a little messy while you’re getting festive! Baking is such a fun way to bond.

#5 GO SEE THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

The most magical date of all. These lights are at the Noel Festival in Calgary, which actually doubles as an indoor light park, and Christmas market – two dates in one!

#6 ATTEND A HOLIDAY WREATH-MAKING WORKSHOP

I’ve had this date on my list for at least a couple of seasons now! My mom is always going to Christmas wreath or tree workshops around the holidays and I think it would make such a cute date!

#7 HAVE A GINGERBREAD BUILDING COMPETITION

Spice things up with a little friendly holiday-themed competition. Paul and I had a blast decorating gingerbread houses the other night.

#8 VISIT A CHRISTMAS TREE NURSERY

I know it’s a little late to buy a tree, but it’s still fun to browse the rows of delicious smelling pine trees.

#9 SNOWBALL FIGHT

You’re never too old to play in the snow. Bundle up, go for a winter walk, and engage in a spontaneous snowball fight.

#10 GO ON A SLEIGH RIDE

What better way to get in the Christmas spirit?! If Paul wasn’t allergic to horses I’d definitely be taking him on this date.

#11 TOBOGGANING

Channel your inner childhood energy, grab some toboggans and find the biggest hill in your neighborhood to go tobogganing.

#12 TAKE A MINI GETAWAY

This one makes for the perfect Christmas gift or the perfect escape from the holiday madness. Paul and I were just in Canmore, AB this week for a little getaway at Basecamp Resorts and it was absolutely a dream.

Wishing you all the merriest holiday season, and I hope these dates brighten your day!
