Fun Holiday Date Ideas (By City)

We’ve broken some of these amazing date ideas down for you city by city -- Do you see a city close to you below?


  • Christkindlmarket

    Walk through this amazing German style traditional market this holiday season. Here, you and your date can enjoy local and international foods, live entertainment, merchandise, and so many more memorable activities! This is a perfect spot to end a perfect outdoor date night.

  • Zoolights

Stroll through Lincoln Park to see these beautiful lights with your loved ones. We promise you it's a sight you don’t want to miss!

  • Ice Skating at Millenium Park

    What’s more romantic than ice skating in close proximity with your better half? We’re picturing a romantic scene straight out of a hallmark movie - do you see it? Sure you might look a bit like fools at first but at least you can romantically look like fools together. What better place to look like fools together than at the McCormick Tribune. Skating is free and skate rentals are available for $13 and up!

  • Frosty’s Bar

    This crowd favorite pop-up bar is back and better than ever! This is the perfect date spot to let loose. From sensational seasonal cocktails, to interactive photo experiences, all the way to some amazing live music and entertainment, your date is sure to be a blast!

New York :

  • Ice Skating  

    As cliche as it may sound to romantically ice skate the night away at the Rockefeller Center, we know how crowded and unpleasant this can get around this time of year. This shouldn’t stop you from living out your romantic movie scene! Consider venturing out and finding other rinks like the Wollman and Lasker Rinks which reside in Central Park. These areas tend to be less busy and allow space for more romantic gestures. 

  • Union Square Holiday Market

    With over 160 vendors coming in, it's making this year's Holiday Market one of the best! Shop everything local and hand crafted at this year's market located at the heart of NYC, Union Square Park. Maybe you can pick out a memorable gift for your significant other while you’re at it!

  • Edge Holiday Lights

    There’s something surreal about seeing a city from a birds eye view. Not sure if it’s the altitude, but being nearly 1,200 feet above ground brings out a form of romance you didn’t even know existed. Believe us, this romantic gesture will be the most memorable one yet. While you’re up there, they are also offering “Cocoa in the Clouds & Edge Nog” - how cute does that sound! What are you waiting for, it’s time to book those tickets!

Los Angeles: 

  • Grinchmas

    Who said Grinchmas was just for kids? In fact, we think the grinch relates best to us adults - don’t you think? What better way to break the ice on a date than over some humorous Grinch roasts and a laugh to remember. Catch the tree lighting ceremony and a performance by the Who-ville Who’s while you’re there!

  • Yuletide Cinemaland

    Ah the classic, an outdoor movie date. The perfect time to debate your favorite holiday movie, snuggle up, and enjoy an evening of Christmas magic. Check out their schedule to see what movies are playing!

  • Holiday Lights

    Lightscapes is one of the most popular holiday attractions in the LA area, and they definitely live up to the hype. The internationally acclaimed dance of light, art and music transforms The Arboretum into an illuminated night experience that everyone is bound to love! This self-guided walking event is the perfect way to have a wonderful chat with your date while taking in some breathtaking sights. 

Indoor Holiday Date Ideas

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about our homebodies out there. Trust us, we know how exhausting all these outdoor holiday date activities can get. Why not bring some of that holiday spirit to the comfort of your own home… and while in some cozy pajamas! Here are some indoor holiday date ideas for you and your loved one:

  • Gingerbread House Competition 

    Is it really Christmas if you don’t bust out those gingerbread engineering skills? Plus, friendly competition brings people that much closer to each other. Remember to stock up on those ingredients, and if you’re feeling funky, give the competition a theme!

  • Make DIY Ornaments  Making your own ornaments with special meaning has another level of importance. Sure, fancy ornaments passed down from generation to generation look great, but why not add a touch of your own history! You and you S/O are bound to have a relaxing and pleasant evening while making these.
  • Decorate - Holidays are the time to glam up your home. Whether that be for Christmas, the New Year, or both. Even if you’re not inviting anyone over this year, you and your S/O will have a ball decorating a common space. Not to mention, the decor might even help the seasonal depression.


What do couples do on a holiday date?

Very commonly, couples go ice skating for a holiday date. They also can find themselves at a light show or sipping some hot chocolate and watching a movie together. 

What are some Christmas movie date night ideas?

Movie dates are all about setting the mood. Get the ambiance right and it will be the most seamless date night of your life! Get some blankets, snacks, lights, and pick out a classic Christmas movie like “White Christmas” or “It’s a Wonderful Life” and you’ll be all set to go.

What do you do on a Christmas date?

Adventure through some beautiful Christmas lights, donate to a good cause, host an in-house picnic, go ice skating - the possibilities are endless!

What activities do people do on New Years?

Many couples either attend or host a new years party. Due to the pandemic, this has become less common but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! Spend time with those you’re thankful for and cook a meal together, play board games, and share memories from the past year. 


Couple holiday date activities are truly endless. From outdoor activities like ice-skating and market exploring, to indoor activities like a movie night, and everything in between, these activities should last you a while. This season, spend some time with everyone you love and cherish all the memories you make together. From our entire team here at Couplr, we hope you have a safe and prosperous Christmas and New Years.
