All that snow and ice in the wintertime can make you want to stay inside, and there are some great ways to have fun indoors. There are also good reasons to get outside, too, even when it's cold. If you're looking for great dating ideas, both indoor and outdoor options are available. Here are some great indoor and outdoor ways to have a great date when it's cold outside.
1. Coffee at Sunset
There's nothing like drinking something warm and comforting on a cold day, when there's a beautiful blanket of snow on the ground. You and your date can enjoy your coffee curled up under blankets in front of the fireplace, or outdoors on a pristine white layer of snow. Just bundle up, and it can be truly magical to be outdoors with a warm drink and a fiery sunset. It works well for sunrises, too.
2. Cooking up Some Love
If you and your date like to prepare meals for each other, why not spend the evening indoors with a glass of wine, a roaring fire, a good movie, and a great meal? It's dinner and a movie, but you don't have to go out in the cold to enjoy it. Snuggle up and take in the peacefulness of a snowy night. Let the dishes wait until morning.
3. The Backyard Bonfire
For the more adventurous daters who want to brave the cold, a backyard bonfire can be just the thing. A big crackling fire in the firepit and some warm, cozy blankets are a great way to feel peaceful and connected. You can cuddle, tell ghost stories, or just enjoy each other's company. You can even grill outdoors and experience the joy of a warm meal with the snow falling softly around you.
4. Snowshoes in the Park
Getting outdoors when it's cold can be a challenge, especially when there's so much snow on the ground. Walks in the park can take on a whole new dimension when they're done on snowshoes. Don't worry about falling. The snow is soft, and helping each other stay upright makes for a lot of close, romantic contact. Work your way over to your favorite cafe after your walk, where you can have cocoa to warm up. It's a great way to make memories you can both reminisce over when the snow melts and the days get warmer again.
