Winter can be a real motivation killer when it comes to something other than canoodling the annoying other half of your heart -- aka your one and only.
So, here's 7 super duper cute, but not so basic, winter date ideas to keep you sane:
1. Christmas Lights Emporium
Okay, this one's pretty basic and it isn't really an emporium. I mean really, what's Christmas without Christmas lights?
Stop being a Grinch and start being a basic snow bunny.
Test out your Betty Crocker skills, or there lack of, and put your sweetie to the ultimate sweets test *wink-wink*
3. Snow Dance
Forget the basic ice skating date and grab your handsome mister out into the cold to dance in the snow... hello season 17 of ABDC.
4. Get Crafty With It
Instead of decorating the Christmas tree together, but really, you should do that too, head to the craft store and pick up supplies to make a super duper cute ornament to go on your super duper cute tree.
5. Pillow fort and chill
This one might sound pretty basic, but it's not.
Grab as many pillows as you can, run to Walmart and get a little kiddy blow up pool, toss all the pillows in the pool, grab some blankets and hit up Netflix for a unique, or not so unique, twist on Netflix and chill holiday edition.
Hello, Christmas movies!
6. Carriage ride
If your city offers it, take a carriage ride around the city. It may not be cheap and you might end up with hypothermia, but I can guarantee you that it'll be one romantic evening.
It's basically a win-win.
7. Snowball fight, hot cocoa, and bubble bath
Okay yeah, I get that snowball fights are pretty basic and hot cocoa... well that's just a necessity here, but if you're up for it, after whooping some booty in snowball fights, light some candles, fill the tub with warm water and relax in a tub full of bubbles while sipping on some hot cocoa.
What better way to end the day?
Don't let the cold crush your spirits -- you may be frozen, but let it go *winkity-wink-wink*
