WINTER DATE IDEAS | A Classy Fashionista


Tuesday, January 30, 2018

During the winter, it's so hard to get out of the house for a date night, because it's so cold! I'd much rather stay at home snuggled on the couch than braving the arctic weather. As I was thinking of fun date ideas and things I wanted to do with Christopher, I thought of a few things to do out of the house, and then some things to do in when ya just don't feel like leaving the house, but still want to make the night special!

As I was writing today's post, I got a little sentimental & mushy and went back and found some old pictures of Christopher & I from when we first started dating, so of course I have to share them with you! They're a little grainy, because they're forever old and taken on a phone, but they make me smile and I thought it'd be fun to take y'all down memory lane. 💑

Coffee date //

This is from one of our first coffee dates and I still remember taking this picture! For us, coffee dates on the weekends are a must. Whether we grab coffee to go from a local coffee shop and walk around town or we stay at the coffee shop and chat for a bit, it's always a good time. I love coffee dates, because they're inexpensive and it still counts as a date! 

Redecorate a room //

If you're anything like me, taking a trip to Home Goods to get a few new decor pieces and then redecorating a room is the best date ever! I live for redecorating a space, so it gives us a chance to get out of the house and work together to make our home even homier. It also helps that we both have very similar decor styles and love all things decor & design.

Play a board game //

There's at least one board game that you love to play that's perfect for two players! We love playing battleship and it brings for entertainment and endless laughs! It's not all that special, but you get a chance to spend time with each other and spend some quality time together.

Hot chocolate & movie //

What's better than getting cozy with hot chocolate and a good movie?! This is something that Chris and I will do a lot during the winter--especially on the weekends when we don't feel like getting out of our comfy jammies. So, grab your favorite movie and make some hot chocolate (spike it if ya'd like) and get to snuggling!

Go ice skating //

I mean, this is just classic for the winter. I feel like you haven't truly lived during the winter unless you go ice skating. Whether you take a trip to central park or just your local town skating rink, get out there and live a little! We were such babies the last time we went ice skating. I think we were dating for maybe 3 months when we went!

Spa night at home //

Having a spa day with your girl friends is always fun, but have you ever had a spa night at home with your dude?! From personal experience, I can tell you that it's the funniest time ever, yet surprisingly relaxing, too! It's funny because have you ever had your dude put on a face mask?! SO funny! Grab a face mask and relax a bit with your dude and then it's time for massages! Take turns and give each other massages! It gives you time to chat, laugh, and relax together.

Cook a new meal together //

So we were totally making brownies here, but this was maybe a month after I moved into my first apartment (the one we're still in now), so of course brownies were necessary!

Instead of spending a ton of money on a fancy meal out, find a recipe on Pinterest that you've never tried before, grab the ingredients, and make it together. I love trying new recipes, and I feel like they just taste so much better when you make it together!

Pin Me For Later!

Even though the winter weather might get ya down and make you want to hibernate indoors, don't let it drag down your love life! There are plenty of things you can do together indoors. Then, when you're feeling adventurous, head out and have a new adventure together.
