4 Romantic cold weather date ideas

Forget the dinner and a movie routine because romance can be found in unexpected places when the weather turns chilly. With these date ideas, you can use this winter as an opportunity to snuggle up and really get to know your love interest.

Snow tubing

Pack on the layers, rent some tubes and find the area’s largest hill for a fun outdoor date. If you want to be guaranteed another date, start a flirty competition. Challenge your partner to a race down, and whoever wins gets to choose what you do on your next date.

Trivia night

This is the perfect idea for a first date. Plan the ultimate night at home and pretend you’re snowed in. Look through your cupboards (stock them before if you’re the type that never has food at your place) and get creative by making dinner using the items you have on hand. Then, print off tons of trivia questions at and have fun getting to know each other’s likes and dislikes.

Late-night drive

Pour some hot chocolate into a thermos and drive around looking at homes with impressive Christmas lighting. Bring some wool blankets to cozy up with and make a Christmas tunes playlist for the ride. You can use an online Christmas light directory, or just get lost and enjoy each other’s company.

Bed and breakfast

This may not be the best idea for a first date, but if you feel comfortable spending the night together, why not try out a bed and breakfast? Bring two robes so you can stay in your room watching movies all night in a comforting atmosphere. Then wake up, take a long, steamy shower and enjoy some hearty home-cooked breakfast.
