Winter Dates

Winter is a magical time of year filled with holidays, loved ones and festive lights with snowfall. Whether you want to cozy up inside with a fuzzy blanket or venture out into the chilly air, winter is the perfect time to plan romantic and fun dates to spend quality time with your partner or a new dating app match!


Ice Skating 

Design by Concha Campa

If you are looking to fulfill peak winter romanticization, then ice skating, especially outdoors, is a couple’s wonderland. Even if you are not coordinated, the experience will encourage you both to support each other and try something new together. This serendipity-esque date will be filled with laughs and, hopefully, a hot chocolate to end the night.


Movie Night at Home

If the weather is too cold for your taste, invite your significant other over for a movie night in. Turn on the twinkle lights, light a few candles and find your warmest blankets to enjoy a movie marathon. Whether cheesy Hallmark movies are your jam or the entire Lord of the Rings series, a cup of hot chocolate will make the mood even more festive. You can find an easy recipe online and splash in some peppermint schnapps, or just grab a pre-made box to enjoy together. 


Local Christmas Festivities

Local events give a unique experience while supporting your city. Manhattan puts on a yearly family Christmas carnival downtown that would be the perfect event to get to know someone new or make memories with your partner. The festival is Dec. 4 and will be full of lights, food and features horse-drawn carriage rides!


Bake Gingerbread Houses

Get creative with some baking together by building a gingerbread house or village. Throw on some Christmas tunes, whip up a recipe yourselves -or just pick up a boxed set from the store- and get to decorating. This might challenge both of you to communicate when putting it together, but, worst-case scenario, you can just eat the house if it falls apart! 


Channel your inner Lorelei Gilmore this winter and enjoy the snowfall and brisk weather with your significant other!
