Valentine's Day at a distance? Yes!
Make sure to share street addresses for this date!
Each of you either buy card kits or gather some craft supplies for making cards, just like kids would!
Start a call on speaker or use a webcam to communicate. Being able to video chat is typically ideal, but this date can be fun with voices alone since it adds a surprise aspect!
Both of you gather your card making supplies and begin writing out Valentines for the other person. Talk about the process as you do it!
At the end of it, when your cards are filled out, mail them to the other person! Happy Valentine's Day!
A date 1 year in the making!
For this date, you'll need a large box or chest to store things in!
On New Year's Day, you and your special someone start filling a box with things to make up a date with. Things like wrapped gifts and cards for each other as well as games you can play together, movies you can watch, or candles you can light are all good ideas! Continue adding to the box all throughout the year, but don't go digging through it to see how full it is or what's inside! Just add your items and leave it alone. Wrapping things helps prevent the other person from getting too curious and spoiling things.
On New Year's Eve, take the box of goodies and set it out, then at midnight (or in the morning on New Year's Day,) open up the box and explore its contents together!
If you both enjoyed the process, start a new box for next year!
When the good packing snow blankets the streets, it's the perfect time for a snow date!
Start off by setting out two mugs with cocoa mix inside on the counter. (Alternatively you could set things up for making tea if you're just not a hot cocoa fan!)
Place a kettle on the stove, leaving it off for now and switching it on when you get back! (even if you're only going as far as your own backyard!)
What does one do on a snow date? There are the usual options;
And then there are some more unique ideas. I recommend gathering buckets you'd use for building sandcastles and building a snow castle! You can also mix it up and build fort walls, then have a snowball fight from behind them as you try to take down your darling's defenses!
Snow leaves a lot of options, so bundle up and go have some fun with it! When you're ready to call it a day, return home to some hot cocoa and cuddle up next to each other as you reflect.
It's almost Christmas time, which means many neighborhoods will have lovely displays outside!
With your dearest, take a walk around town at night, looking at Christmas lights. This date is best when there's snow!
Too cold and icy? Or are you not able to do the walk? A slow drive with Christmas music on can also be romantic!
End the evening inside with some hot cocoa, tea, or coffee, while Christmas music plays softly in the background. Talk all about the Christmas holiday and enjoy it to the fullest together! Also share some of your best memories from a Christmas in the past, then memories since times together, and what you imagine for future holidays.
If you’re not a big fan of the cold and love baking, then this date’s for you!
The idea is to make something together, set the table and enjoy it over some candlelight.
Turn on some music and preheat the oven, it's time to bake something delicious with your darling! For this date you'll want to gather the needed tools and ingredients first, then get together and start baking! It can be anything from pizza to steak, just depends on what you both like.
Don't forget dessert!
Make the date extra sweet by being romantic about the process! For example, when rolling out cookie dough, extending your arms around the other person is a very intimate way to go about it.
What you’ll need:
Cream together shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in large bowl. Blend in the rest of the ingredients. Chill dough for an hour. Set oven for 400 degrees fahrenheit. Roll out dough and cut into desired shapes, and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes.
For frosting mix powdered sugar and milk in bowl until you get a consistency you like. Separate into smaller bowls and add food dye to get desired colors.
All done! Enjoy!
Have you ever camped out, loved it, and missed it in the colder months? That's not a problem with this date for married couples, as it can be done anytime of the year, no matter the weather!
Gather together sleeping bags, snacks, a good book and anything else that you might take out camping, then pick a room in your house to make camp with your sweetheart!
If you don't have sleeping bags, you can use lots of pillows and a comforter instead like we did!
