Today, our New Jersey Singles matchmakers are going to share our favorite holiday date ideas that you won’t want to miss!

1. Have a Movie Night ☕??

Movie nights are great any day of the year, but they’re particularly wonderful during winter when the NJ temps are below freezing and you’re looking for any excuse to cuddle up together.

There are so many holiday movies nowadays that you could have an entire movie marathon at home.  It gives you a chance to hang out together and spend quality time without spending a lot of money like you would at the movie theaters.

It is fabulous to have a relaxing night in with your partner as you cozy up and enjoy your favorite holiday classics.  Better yet, you can make an entire day out of it by cooking dinner, preparing your favorite snacks, and lounging around the house.  Have some hot cocoa or wine and enjoy each other’s company.

2. Go Ice-Skating ❄⛸❄

The holiday season is the perfect time to go ice-skating together.  If you’re good at it, this will give you the perfect opportunity to show your partner your balance and skills.

If you’re not that coordinated on the ice, don’t worry.  Learning together will give you an excuse to hold onto each other tightly.  There are plenty of places to head out together, and being on the cold rink will give you the perfect excuse to be close to each other to warm up.  This is the perfect date idea if you’re ready to have some romantic fun.

3. Go Check Out the Christmas Lights ❄?

This is the perfect date to get into the Christmas spirit.  It is fun to drive aimlessly with your partner while playing your favorite Christmas music and admiring the beautifully decorated homes around the neighborhood.

Being trapped in the car might not sound so entertaining, but believe us, you will not be disappointed.  There are so many places to check out around the city that will make you wonder how they even got the lights up that high.

4. Visit a Christmas Parade ??

Fun and festive parades are taking over now that the holidays are here.  You can spend an entire day checking out the parade as you sip on some hot cocoa to stay warm.  Oh, and did we forget about the candy canes?

Christmas parades are very fun and festive and will get you both into the holiday spirit in no time.

5. Visit a Christmas Tree Farm ?

Christmas tree farms are a great place to go this time of year.  Who doesn’t like picking out their own tree, or even cutting it down?  If you haven’t done it yet, we recommend you do this one together.

Christmas tree farms don’t just involve the trees themselves.  There are many activities you and your partner can do together at the local tree farm.

6. Go Christmas Shopping Together ?

We all have to do the mandatory Christmas shopping, right?  So why not go together?  You’ll be able to help each other out when it comes to picking the best gifts for friends, family, and coworkers.

Just make sure you don’t buy something for your partner right then and there.  The mall might be crowded and stressful, but it will be a lot better to tackle it as a team.  Wouldn’t you agree?

7. Walk Around Your Town or City ❄☃

There are always beautiful things to see and do around the holidays, so get out and check out your town or hop in the car and head to a nearby city.  You can go eat at a small diner that you’ve never been to before and even do some last-minute shopping near the downtown area.

It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do, as long as you are together, that’s all that matters.  And it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve been to the city, it is just magical around the holiday season.  So get your partner, grab some hot cocoa or something to eat, and do a little sightseeing and last-minute shopping.

8. Bake Something Delicious ??

If you don’t know how to bake, this date will be super fun.  Working together as a team and being silly will make things that much better.

Go to the store and get some ready-to-go dough, sprinkles, and all the adorable decorations you can find, then head home and start making all different holiday desserts together.

From Christmas cookies to candy-filled gingerbread houses, you can make anything you want.  And don’t worry about getting messy because that’s what it’s all about.  A little competition is always encouraged, so see who can make the most beautiful or over-the-top gingerbread house.

9. Decorate a Tree Together ??

Here at New Jersey Singles, one of our favorite holiday date ideas is simply decorating a tree together.  It doesn’t matter if you went to a Christmas tree farm or bought an artificial one at the store, decorating it together will put you in the holiday spirit.

You can have fun with your partner as you string up the lights and add the ornaments together.  And don’t be afraid to break out in a Christmas jingle as you jam out to your favorite holiday classics and drink an eggnog together.  See, this is the perfect date for the holidays.
