There is something especially romantic about the idea of spending the holidays with a significant other; dressing for parties, exchanging of gifts, kissing under the mistletoe, and cuddling under the Christmas tree watching classic holiday movies.
Unfortunately Christmas can get quite expensive for most so I thought i would give you some budget friendly holiday date ideas.
1.)Make a Gingerbread House - There is something magical about building Gingerbread Houses. Getting icing all over and eating candy, having a fun little competition about who built it better and laughing over collapsing gingerbread pieces.
2.)Take a Tour of Christmas Lights- Enjoy your neighbourhood decor and feel festive looking at all the magical lights.
3.)Attend or Throw an Ugly Sweater Party- Nothing better then a soiree with your best ugliest christmas attire.
4.)Bake Cookies- Spend an afternoon baking cookies together and eating cookie dough. Try out new recipes and have a good laugh over your man not knowing how to bake.
5.)Kiss Under a Mistletoe- With all the hustle & bustle of the holidays don't forget the romance in your relationship. Kiss under a mistletoe, hold hands, and remember to tell them that you care.
6.)Have a Christmas Movie Marathon- There is nothing better then snuggling up by the fireplace, under the tree watching holiday classics with the one you love. Get in the holiday spirit together & drink some hot cocoa.
7.)Go to a Christmas Market- Find a Christmas market or a Christmas farmers market and browse the Christmas handmade gifts.
8.)Have a Game Night- Get
