Cute Festive Date Ideas


Date night on the cards? Tis’ the season for festive plans!

It could be a first date and you fancy heading out to the Christmas markets. You’re ready to hit up the renowned Winter Wonderland. Or, maybe you just want to stay home with endless Christmas films and seasonal hot chocolates. Whatever your vibe we are sharing date inspo to give you all the feels this Winter.


If heading outdoors…

Christmas Film Viewing

From orchestras playing alongside your fave Christmas film to seriously sleighin’ settings. A Christmas film date night is a must on your hitlist so why not go all out! It’s best to check out your local area to see what’s on but we spotted Backyard Cinema (London) and Christmas City Drive-In Cinema (Manchester) which both offer festive food alongside unreal festive displays. Such a mood!

Christmas Markets

It would not be Christmas without a market trip! Delicious food, endless mulled wine and of course it is festive AF. So, layer up with a oversized coat, snug accessories and hit the huts. Most city centers host Christmas markets but be sure to check out our previous post to see the best in the UK (it could be worth the extra travel time).

Winter Wonderland

You guessed it, Winter Wonderland is of course a major go-to for Christmas. Seriously, you’re going to feel like you’ve arrived in the North Pole never mind Hyde Park. Be sure to book early as it’s a sell-out situation year on year but once confirmed then prep yourself for a day of OTT Christmas activities including ice skating and a next level ice bar.


Winter Walk

Your perfect opportunity to check out the Christmas lights, also even better if you have a pet pooch. Layer up, throw on your chunky boots and get a breathe of fresh air. If you’re wanting to guarantee festive feels, be sure to check out local National Trust locations near you as the majority have Christmas events happening in the run up to the big day.

Snacks, a cosy blanket and maybe even twinning pj’s if you’re long term partners – a perfect festive photo op for the ‘gram.

Decorate The Christmas Tree

This one could be risky if you’re all about the aesthetic but if you’re more than happy to possibly reorganise the decorations then go for it! Pop on your fave Christmas playlist and get placing. Something to be proud of together.

Winter Cocktail Night

Classic snowball? Sloe gin fizz? Festive negroni?

Or, if you’re not feeling the alcohol simply switch it up with festive hot chocolates. Perfect to go alongside the tree decorating! #goals
