The holiday’s are the most wonderful time of the year, and what makes the holiday’s so special is having the ones you love close by. Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect date idea, so I figured I’d help you all out and provide you with some of the best date ideas for the Holiday season.
1. The Grove-
This is a wonderful place to go on a date during the holidays. With their 100 ft. tree all decorated with lights, Santa’s house and snow that falls between 7pm and 8pm. This is truly a winter wonderland. Plus you two can grab some food at the many restaurants, see a movie or just window shop. Whatever your hearts desire, you’re bound to enjoy the holidays together.
2. Christmas Lights (Candy Cane Lane)
Going to look at Christmas lights is a fun tradition I like to do every year. It’s also something fun for you and your date to do as well. Candy Cane lane allows you to also park and walk through looking at all the decorated homes.
3. Cinema in the park– Christmas movies
Who doesn’t love a good Christmas movie? Going to a cinema in the park to watch a Christmas movie is a perfect date night. Grab a blanket and picnic basket, some hot coco and snuggle up.
Disneyland is wonderful all year round, but especially during the holidays–everything is decorated and the beautiful Christmas tree in Downtown.
5. La Zoo (Light show)
Every year during the holiday’s the LA Zoo puts on a light show.
6. Enchanted Descanso gardens
You can even have dinner with Santa and check out all the lights.
7. Ice Skating
It may be cliche’ but spending the evening holding hands and doing loops around the rink to the best christmas songs, is an evening you’ll always remember.
8. Hot chocolate tasting
Skip wine tasting– have a “hot coco tasting” date. This is perfect for the holiday season. You can try all the different flavored hot coco’s and even bake some cookies.
9. Have a snow day
It really isn’t winter without a little snow. Take a day trip to the closest spot of snow and have a snow day. Build snowmen, going bobsledding, even snowboarding or skiing.
10. Take a sleigh ride
What’s more romantic in the winter time than a sleigh ride?
11. Go to a Christmas tree lot or Tree farm and cut down your own tree
Go to your nearest christmas tree lot and pick out a tree to decorate together or go to a tree farm and cut down your own tree. Either way you’ll be spending time together.
12. Gingerbread houses
Build gingerbread houses! Even take a little poll to see who’s is better? This is just a fun way to bond over the holiday season.
13. Snuggle by the fireplace with hot coco and watch a Christmas movie
Nothing better than cozying up next to a fire with hot coco and a cute Christmas movie.
14. California Christmas at the beach w/ santa hats and build sandman’s
Have a California Christmas by heading down to the beach and wearing Santa hats and building (snow) Sandmen.
15. Go thrift shopping for Ugly Christmas sweaters
Have an ugly sweater party to attend or just feeling festive? Either way, it’ll be fun to head to a thrift store and find yourselves some ugly sweaters.
