12 Best Things to Do With Your Boyfriend at Christmas
1. Shop for friends and family.
This Christmas activity for couples is a great ice-breaker for the "first holiday together" pair, assuming you have more than just a couple months under your belt. It's always nice to brave the madness of the mall with someone else, particularly if that someone is a special one. Of course, if you both prefer to avoid venturing out, then cozying up on the couch to order the best online gift certificates together is a great alternative. And while you're at it, don't forget about scoping out top Christmas gifts for couples — that you two can enjoy together!
2. Spread Christmas cheer to a charity.
One of the cutest things to do with your boyfriend for Christmas is helping those in need. Not to mention, giving of your resources together –whether its time or finances– is a great relationship- and character-building Christmas activity for couples. So sign up to lend a helping hand somewhere, organize a food drive, "Christmas shop" to fill pantry shelves or closets instead of stockings, or cut a check together to make spirits bright for someone.
3. Deck the halls together.
As far as Christmas date ideas, this one takes the cake. Or maybe it's the cookies, in this case? Regardless, decorating for the holidays, baking treats, and doing a lil' tree trimming together is an adorable way to share conversation about traditions with each other, as well as have some fun and perhaps sip a bit of eggnog in the process.
4. Build gingerbread houses with young'ns.
The best Christmas traditions for couples are those that also involve family. If one or both of you have munchkins of your own, or nieces and nephews living nearby, rope 'em into some festive activities. Nothing does it better or more magically for kiddos than building gingerbread houses as the sounds of Christmas carols induce vibrant group sing-alongs!
5. Check out local Christmas events.
On any list of cute things to do with your boyfriend for Christmas, this one makes it to the tip-top! There is certainly no shortage of romantic holiday date ideas and Christmas activities for couples in every town, city and village around the country. So enlighten the carolers, delight in the lights, stock up on stocking stuffers, cheers over eggnog, and so much more!
6. Check out not-so-local Christmas happenings!
If you've never experienced Christmas activities for couples in New York, LA, Boston, Chicago and other grand cities in the US of A that go all-out... now's your chance! Hop on a plane or fire up the roadtrip directions, and be on your merry way to make lots of festive memories together.
7. Take in a symphonic Christmas show.
Nothing will get couples in the mood (the holiday mood, that is) quite like a full-blown set of talented musicians putting their all into performing favorite Christmas carols! So buy some tickets, perhaps grab a beverage beforehand, and tap a foot (or two!) to the sounds of the season for one of the best Christmas date nights to ever exist!
8. Sip holiday spirits.
Treat yourselves to seasonal-release ales and other adult beverage fare. Whether it's on a formal booze, beer or wine tour in the area, or your own repertoire of venues (with or without holiday flare or festive costumes involved… just sayin') — this is sure to be one of the most fun things to do with your boyfriend for Christmas to make merry and make memories together.
9. Throw a cool yule party.
Looking for holiday date ideas that go beyond yourselves? Tag-team a spirited shindig that extends the invitation to friends and family! Christmas is the perfect time to bring people together. So mix up some eggnog, put some fun apps together, and enjoy being the hosts with the most for a festive evening.
10. Crafty Christmas ideas for couples!
Holiday season have you feeling artsy? Go with it! One of the best Christmas gifts for couples is the chance to embark on creative endeavors together. So why not make DIY presents for each other, to put under the tree? Or do it as a joint-effort, especially if this is your first Christmas together. Scope out cool options that may be available in your city like painting pottery, private glassblowing classes, woodworking and more.
11. Holiday movie marathon.
Perhaps ranking #1 as cute things to do with your boyfriend for Christmas is an old-school movie marathon. Not only is it entertaining, but it also serves as a wonderful window to childhood. And a fun excuse to enjoy some vino and popcorn together as adults.
12. Partake in outdoor winter fun!
