How Can I Fit Date Night in During the Holidays?

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year. We have family activities, concerts, shopping, gift wrapping, and the list goes on and on.

It can also be a very stressful season for couples due to added expenses and constant activities. This added stress is one very good reason to MAKE time for your relationship.

Finding time to date each other is one of the 10 habits of a healthy marriage. I firmly believe that couples must find time to be together alone without the children.

It is possible to find time for a date night during the rushed Christmas season if you make it a priority. Get some times on the calendar NOW before the dates get filled in with other stuff.

Remember that we all make time for what is important to us and our marriage and relationships should be very high on that list.

Christmas Date Night Ideas

There are unlimited ideas for things to do together as a couple. The fun thing about Christmas time is that there are special events going on everywhere and all the twinkling lights don’t hurt either!

Here are some romantic Christmas date ideas:

  1. Drink hot cocoa
  2. Listen to Christmas carols
  3. Watch a holiday movie or attend a Nutcracker performance
  4. Snuggle by the fireplace
  5. Play a board game
  6. Go ice skating at an indoor or outdoor rink
  7. Kiss under the mistletoe
  8. Go Christmas shopping together
  9. Wear matching PJs to bed
  10. Bake Christmas cookies or other holiday treats
  11. Decorate the Christmas tree
  12. Make popcorn garland
  13. Drive around and look at holiday lights
  14. Dance to Christmas songs
  15. Make a gingerbread house
  16. Go ugly sweater shopping together
  17. Drink eggnog or another Christmas cocktail
  18. Read ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
  19. Cut down your own tree at a Christmas tree farm
  20. Shop for and donate a Toy to Toys for Tots or a local shelter
  21. Hang a wreath on the door and/or put up other Christmas decorations
  22. Go to a local Christmas parade or Christmas concert
  23. Make your own ornament
  24. Have a picnic inside on a blanket in front of the fireplace
  25. Build a snowman together
  26. Go for a sleigh ride
  27. Make advent calendars for one another
  28. Stroll through a Christmas market together
  29. Do Elf on the Shelf for one another throughout the month
  30. Make up a Christmas scavenger hunt and go looking for Santa, reindeer, elves, etc.

I love that many of these date night ideas are simple and very low-cost. Christmas is an expensive time of year for families and you don’t want to add to that expense with costly dates.

It is so easy to have a GREAT time with your spouse or significant other without spending a fortune.

How to Use the Holiday Date Night Printable

This free printable has several cute Christmas couple activities so you can make it a December to remember.

You can use it like a bucket list and try to complete all the fun dates. Or, use it to play date night bingo during the holiday season.

Have each person pick a few things off the printable date ideas card. Some of these ideas can be clustered together and done during one evening or time frame. It would be very easy to complete every item on this list in 2-3 dates total!

Here is an example: My husband and I are going to take a Sunday afternoon and go ice skating and then Christmas shopping. While we are shopping we will pick up a toy and donate it to Toys for Tots. We will buy a gingerbread house kit and when we get home we will make a gingerbread house together while drinking eggnog and listening to Christmas music!

Later in the month, we will have an evening date night while the kids are gone for the night. We will wear ugly Christmas sweaters while we drive around and look at Christmas lights in our area. When we get home we will change into our Christmas PJ’s and play a board game. Then I will put on one of my favorite Christmas movies and we will light a fire in the fireplace. I definitely see us drinking some hot chocolate during the movie!

I think you can see how easy it is to fit in lots of Christmas date ideas during a few December date nights!
