Has this chilly Jersey weather got you down? Don’t fret, New Jersey Singles reviews the ultimate winter date ideas that are guaranteed to warm you up!
The holiday season is among us, and with that means bitter cold weather—at least if you live in the state of New Jersey. New Jersey winters mean snowstorms, ice, and below zero weather. You already know the days are done earlier, the wind picks up, and the thermometer drops. Holiday music is playing everywhere you go, the smell of cinnamon is saturating the air, and everything feels a little bit cozier right now.
So what can you do to get all warm and toasty with your parnter this winter? What can you and your partner do during those bitter cold days? Today, New Jersey Singles reviews the ultimate winter date ideas to heat things up in your romantic life.
1. Go Ice-Skating
Okay, you can call us old school here, but we know that ice-skating is a great winter date idea. Strap on some skates, hold hands, and give your partner a twirl on the ice. Getting chilly just thinking about it? Want to make it a little better? Follow it up with a little hot cocoa or mulled wine.
Bonus: If you’re lucky enough to live in the countryside, you can go ice-skating at a nearby lake and have a romantic picnic in the snow.
2. Go for a Walk in the Country
It might sound like an odd idea to venture out into the cold this time of year, but believe us, it’s romantic. There is nothing like having your cheeks turn pink in the cold winter air and following it up with a hot meal right in front of the fireplace. Don’t have a fireplace? Don’t worry, follow it up at a nearby cozy restaurant and have a belly-warming meal there.
Too much of a city person? Don’t live near the countryside? Don’t worry, you can go for ra walk at a local park and follow it up with a warm and nutty beverage and hot pastry or pie.
Try to find a place that offers good winter meals, such as chicken potpie, soups, egg toddy, or mulled wine. These are all perfect to warm you up after a long walk.
3. Have a Date with Candlelight
There is just something heartwarming about cozying up with your partner in the dark, sipping some mulled wine or hot cocoa, and chatting the night away. Light a few candles to really set the mood. And if you have a fireplace, even better.
Once you dim the lights down low, snuggle up with your partner or even play board games together. But we do have one rule to follow for this date—no electronics.
You can have all the snacks you want. You can even have some indoor fun roasting them over the fire. Marshmallows, apples, and chestnuts, you can have it all. As far as drinks, a winter tea, hot cocoa, apple cider, or mulled wine are all perfect for this cozy night in.
4. Bake Festive Things Together
Christmas and the holidays are right around the corner, so why not make a date and bake something festive together? Make a gingerbread house, gingerbread cookies, or a gingerbread cake. You can make holiday cookies, candies, fudge, or whatever you desire.
Many people do Christmas jams, which is something you and your partner can make too. These little jam jars will come in handy to give away as holiday gifts. You can even do it for an act of kindness and donate them to a local charity. Homemade cookies and holiday treats are great for friends, coworkers, neighbors, or your local shelter.
And for an added bonus, why not have a flour fight with your partner and end things with a big kiss? You can finish the date with a candlelight dinner and reminisce about all the fun you’ve had together. Now that is what we call a great time here at New Jersey Singles.
5. The Volunteer Date
Why not volunteer together and help those who are in need? Both you and your partner can volunteer for a local charity. Many of them hold Christmas events where you and your partner can volunteer your time. There is nothing better than helping those who are less fortunate, especially this time of year.
6. Create Something Together
If both of you love arts and crafts, then this date will be the perfect date for the two of you. You can make holiday cards or a fun and creative DIY project. There are plenty of ideas on Pinterest you can try out this holiday season.
7. Decorate the House
Why not get together with your partner and decorate the house? You can make it even better by combining it with baking or cooking. Visit your local orchard, pick up some apples, and go home and make a delicious apple pie. While the pie is in the oven, you can make some homemade garlands and decorate the house. There is nothing better than decorating the house with the person you love. And if you didn’t get your tree yet, here’s another great date idea!
8. Go to the Mountains
Are the two of you an outdoor type of couple? Then this date idea is perfect for the two of you. There is just something so romantic about hiking the trails during the cold winter months. It is like walking in a winter wonderland. The trees will be covered with snow, the sounds will be like music to your ears, and everything is so beautiful to see.
