We might be in the middle of summer right now, but as soon as winter comes, we’re all trying to figure out the best way to stay cuddled up in bed. Let’s face it, nobody really wants to go out on dates when the temperatures take a dip. So instead of giving up on your love life during the cold season, how about trying out these cheap and unique date ideas? You’ll never look back.
Do You Want Build A Snowman?
No, you don’t have to watch Frozen, but if that’s your thing then we totally support you. As far as we know snow is completely free, so get dressed up warm and head out for a date of snowman building. You might even get a little carried away and start a snowball fight. Just think, you’ll eventually have to head inside to warm up.
Winter Wonderland Picnic
Have you ever had a winter wonderland picnic date? Nope? You have no idea what you’re missing out on. Grab a blanket, then grab a couple more. You don’t actually have to make anything fancy, just something hot to drink like hot cocoa or tea in a flask. Throw in some cookies and you’re set for a date of cold noses and warm cuddles.
Blanket Fort Movie Night
Still thinking about blankets? We are too. Only this time you can keep them inside your dorm room. Just like when you were a kid, make a blanket fort with lots of pillows and blankets, and then bring your laptop inside. To top it off, make some caramel popcorn!
Irish Coffee Walking City Tour
Do you know what they say about alcohol? It’s a social lubricant – exactly what you need on a date. Grab a flask and fill it with hot cocoa and a couple of shots of rum or whiskey. Go for a slow sightseeing stroll through your local park or indulge in some window shopping. The hot beverage will protect you from the cold, and the liquor will save you from awkwardness.
Board Game Battle
With so many people glued to their screens, board games seem like a thing of the past. However, this cannot be more untrue! Board games are an excellent way to learn about the person you’re dating. Are they competitive? Sore losers? Here’s a fantastic way to find out!
