Winter Bucket List for couples
1. Ice skating
This is a must-add to a winter bucket list for couples.
You can't go wrong with this fun winter date ideas that you and your significant other will love. Even if you don't know how to skate its a great way to bond over how clumsy you both are.
Plus with this, there are awesome photo opportunities.
2. indoor picnic
Even though picnics are usually outside you may want to consider the winter weather it may not be the best idea to be outside.
But you can bring the picnic inside. All you need is a big throw blanket and some cozy throw pillows to cuddle afterward.
Don't forget to pack a good dessert and your favorite alcohol beverage.
3. Make a meal together
If you and your boyfriend/girlfriend love to cook I think this would be fun date idea. Mix it up and cook a meal together that you both never tried before.
If you want a unique learning experience try finding a local cooking class.
4. Rent a cabin
Websites like Airbnb, make it easy to find a cozy cabin that you and your significant other can stay for a weekend.
You can go up to the mountains or even the woods to rent a cute cabin for the night.
5. view holiday lights
I know looking at Christmas lights gets me in the holiday spirit. You could try to find that one neighborhood that goes all out with Christmas decorations.
Get your adrenaline pumping by going sledding. Race down the hills with a sled (with this sled) with your partner. You could even share a sled as an excuse to cuddle.
I don't know if it's only me but this just reminds me of a scene from a rom- com movie and afterward grab some hot chocolate.
What I love about the winter is it brings out the good in people. You could collect food donations or you could help out a local shelter for the holidays.
It's really easy to get involved with your local shelter. Especially during the winter season, homeless shelters need volunteers more than ever.
Another idea is you could even make holiday care packages and send them to children's hospitals. In my l volunteer group, we would always make care packages to our local children's hospital and send them out which made their day.
8. make ugly christmas sweaters
Have a friendly competition between you and your partner.
With this winter bucket list idea, all you need to do is find a sweater at Goodwill that you can use. And then head to your local craft store and purchase supplies to make the ugliest sweater.
9. cuddle near the fire place
There just something about cuddling near the extremely romantic fireplace.
Even if you don't have a fireplace you could find a video on YouTube. If you do have a fireplace you could even make s' mores. You can also make s'mores in the oven.
10. have a couple photoshoot
I think this is such a cute winter date idea. You could add this to your winter bucket list with your boyfriend and have these pictures to look back on once you get older.
