40 Date Ideas That’ll Get You Through the Winter

January 7, 2020 3 min read No Comments

I’m sure there’s someone you know who has said this before but, I don’t do the cold. Every winter, I warn D that once the temperature gets below 30, I’m only going outside to go to work and Target, lol. I’ll see the outside again in April. I’ll be honest though, I am trying to be better about braving the cold but on those nights when I’m just not feeling it, I want to make sure I have something fun for us to do inside besides movie night on the couch. So, I made a list of 40 date ideas to get us through the cold winter months.

I’m a firm believer that there are two people in this world: people who hate the cold and people who love it–I have never met anyone who is indifferent to it. If you’re reading this and aren’t phased by the cold, I’d love to meet you, lol. I tailored the list to those two types of people and split it up between “at home” ideas for anyone who’s like me and hates the cold. And, “outside of the house” ideas for anyone like D who loves it and has no problem layering up. Check it out and if there are any other ideas you think of that I didn’t mention, leave them in the comments below.
