10 Date Ideas For The Holiday Season

10 Date Ideas For The Holiday Season

For those weekends with your significant other where you want to do a little something extra rather than just watch Netflix at home.


Basic or extravagant, make these dates count this holiday season.

1. Go to Disney!

Whether you go for Halloween Horror Nights or during the Christmas time, Disney is a great weekend getaway for you and your significant other. Halloween Horror Nights gives you an excuse to cuddle up to your boy/girl, and Christmas time sets the scene for some amazing pictures with all the seasonal lights and decorations around the park.

2. Go to a pumpkin patch.

This is such a traditional fall date for couples. You go dressed all cute, take some cute pumpkin pictures, you each pick out your own pumpkin, and then you go home and carve them together! Messy, but fun.

3. Try a seasonal coffee/tea/drink from a local coffee shop.

For my fellow coffee lovers out there, this is an exciting date. It isn't super fancy, but it would be fun for you both, and you'd get to try a new drink and feel festive at the same time! It's a win win. Oh yea, and it's cheap, which is always welcome.

4. Go to the movies.

This date is really year-round, but hey, you have to include movie night in a listicle of date ideas, no matter what. The traditional date amongst young couples, where most teenage love stories begin, embrace your inner teenager and go to the movies with your boo this holiday season.

5. Have a movie night in. 

Picture this: you and your man/woman, all cuddled up on the couch, your favorite snacks, your dog, fuzzy blankets, warm drinks, and an amazing movie. What sounds better than that?

6. Bake together.

If there is any time of the year to indulge in your sweet tooth, it's the holiday season. That being said, take advantage of this gluttonous, guilt-free season and plan a night to bake all your favorite sweet treats with your significant other!

7. Go ice-skating.

A classic winter activity that promotes hand holding and mild embarrassment? Count me in. Nothing sounds better than having my boyfriend watch me bust my butt hundreds of times because then he'll feel bad for me and buy me a nice, hot latte. :) Scheme where you can ladies.

8. Take a trip. 

Of course, this applies to those who have the funds to do so, but holiday trips are always super romantic and fun. Some of the best trips to take during this time are either skiing in Colorado/The Swiss Alps/Utah/etc or going to New York for the lights and Christmas festivities.

9. Decorate your home.

If you're like me, decorating during the holidays is your favorite part about the season. Whether it's Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, plan a day and/or night to spend decorating your home with your partner. It'll be fun for the both of you, and then you get to enjoy the decorations for the entire season!

10. Have a picnic in a nearby park. 

Now that summer is over and the blazing, unbearable heat is starting to calm down a little, take advantage of the cooler weather and have a picnic date! Whether it is lunch, dinner, or just a snack, this date gets you both outside enjoying the beautiful weather that comes with the season.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
