The holidays can be very romantic and these Christmas date ideas will help you find fun ways to spend time with the one you love. Don’t let the busyness of the season keep you from putting time and attention to your relationship.
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.

EASY DATE IDEAS
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.
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!
