11 Creative Holiday Activities for Couples

11 creative holiday activities for couples

1. Hot chocolate experimentation

If you’re a chocolate lover, you’ve likely been unsatisfied by store-bought hot chocolate mixes. Finding them watery and lacking the deep chocolatiness that we crave, you’ve probably been guilty of mixing two or even three times the laughable suggested “serving size.” For a fun and truly indulgent date night at home, lay waste to your kitchen with pots of melting chocolate, open bottles of spirits, and obscene amounts of whipped cream. Kick the sad packets of cocoa mix to the curb and gather up your chocolates, truffles, peppermint candies, and liquor. Melt down those truffles from Trader Joe’s that everybody loves and mix it with a splash of vanilla extract and a generous pour of Bailey’s. Stir up a pot of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, some outrageously large scoops of Nutella, and some squares of Ghirardelli dark chocolate. There’s no bonding like the kind of bonding that comes with a night of asking for diabetes and death by chocolate.

2. Super snow fortress fight

That’s right. If you’re lucky enough to be in area that has flakes of crystalline ice coming down from the sky, it’s time to have yourself a good old-fashioned snowball fight. I’m not talking about the light-hearted, frou-frou handfuls of powder that lovers jokingly toss on each other’s peacoats during a romantic stroll outside. We’re talking about the snowball fights of yore that meant serious business, like determining who would get the last sugar cookie back at home. Construct proper fortresses as part of your snow warfare. See who can destroy the other person’s wall of defense first. Upgrade your game by borrowing the kids’ NERF guns and shooting each other through cracks in your snow walls. Get pumped and play hard. Return home with rosy cheeks and feel good about burning some of those holiday calories.

7 Relationship Enhancing Things You Can Do in 10 Minutes or Less

Relationship Enhancing in 10 Minutes or Less

No matter which stage of a relationship you’re in, there are always little things you can do to strengthen the bond between you and your partner. As we grow more comfortable together, there are small things that fade or slip our minds. Luckily, it’s easy to incorporate these little but quick things that make both of you feel happier and closer.

  1. Kiss spontaneously

Whether it’s the second week or second decade together, there’s something about a deep kiss with your partner that sends thrills buzzing down to your toes. The magic is even more intense when it’s unexpected. Sure, a deep kiss after date night is great, but it’s par for the course. A passionate lip lock while browsing the grocery aisles is a surprise that heightens the sensation of both wanting and being wanted. “Hey, honey, should we get the whole wheat or the 8-grain – mmph!” Connect with your partner and let them know that they’re what you want, wherever you are, and spice up even the most mundane tasks.

  1. Say good morning and good night

Maybe when you first started dating, nothing could knock you off your “good morning, good night” game. But as you two grew more comfortable and the fanatical texting of the honeymoon stage calmed down, the morning and night greetings found themselves phased out. Whether you live together or not, saying good morning and good night with a kiss or with a text creates an intimate bond of affection between you and your partner. You’re letting them know that they are what’s on your mind when you wake up and that you’re thinking of them before you sleep.

How To Have An Extraordinary Movie Night Date at Home

categories: Classic Dates, Date Idea, How To:

There’s no better way to chillax (yes, I just went there) with your lady at home than to cuddle up and pop in a DVD, or these days “stream” a movie. I’m guessing that many of you reading this don’t really consider Making It A Blockbuster (Netflix?) Night a “date” in the traditional sense. After all, it’s probably a rather common activity that you do whenever you just feel like staying in and taking it easy. Well, as you know, we at Datevitation are all about sharing our ideas about how you can make a common evening uncommon. A typical evening atypical. A ordinary evening extraordinary.
