There is just something incredibly romantic about the cold, gray winter. There are honestly no other months when you want to cozy up with someone so much.

This post contains the most fun and romantic winter date ideas that are guaranteed to give you the warm and fuzzies!
20 Romantic Winter Date Ideas That’ll Give You the Warm and Fuzzies
1. Ice Skating
If you live in a place that has actual snowfall (first of all lucky!) then an outdoor ice skating date on a frozen lake or clearing is such a fun date to go on, especially if you’re both beginners it can be a super hilarious date! But you know, if you live in a place that doesn’t experience snowfall, a lot of towns have those indoor skating rinks so a quick google search can lead you to a new gem…
2. Wine Tasting
Wine tasting could be such a great date idea for the winter. I don’t know why but wine and romance just go together so well! (Especially if it’s red wine!) So find you nearest wine shop and book a cozy little wine tasting date.

3. Indoor Picnic
An indoor picnic is one of those genius date ideas that is actually perfect. All you need to do is make space in the living room, throw down a blanket and lots of pillows (and candles if you’re feeling frisky!) and of course most important, the yummy romantic picnic food like chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate all by itself. This date is perfect because of the lots of snuggling opportunities… and the food!
4. Hotel Staycation
I know renting a hotel room sounds a little risqué, which is why this is the type of date to go on with someone you’re totally comfortable with. But what sounds better than a night of being pampered? Going on couples massages and lounging in a hotel room?!
5. Paint and Sip
The beauty about a date like this is that it can be at home or at a place that does paint and sips… Just think about how much fun it would be to crack open a bottle of wine and a Bob Ross YouTube video? This is the type of fun date you have on a random Saturday but somehow remember forever!

Where are my Potterheads at? I can’t imagine anyone out there that is not a fan of the Harry Potter movies, so a good date night in could be a movie marathon of all the movies.

If your town has some amazing scenic spots, take a drive out, fill your car up with blankets and pillows and snacks and just have a blast being cozy in the car.
