Cuddling under a blanket, sipping on hot cocoa, walking hand-in-hand as a brisk wind blows by – nothing is more romantic than cold weather! When the temperatures drop, romance heats up. It is cuffing season after all, meaning more couples are pairing up than ever before! Take advantage of the cool weather by going on a date night this month. Below, you’ll find a few ideas to get you started.
It’s like a Christmas movie come to life. Your skates are laced up, and you’re gliding across the ice, twirling, flirting and holding hands! Ice skating is one of the best winter date night ideas. Go ice skating at Galleria Dallas, where you can skate on a beautiful indoor rink around the country’s tallest indoor Christmas tree – talk about a magical experience! Admission is $12 and skate rental is $3.
Later, warm up over a delicious cup of coffee and tasty treat at Dunn Brothers Coffee. It’ll fill your stomach – and your heart – with warmth! At Dunn Bros, stop in for the Candy Cane Mocha, which is a white chocolate and peppermint holiday coffee; or the Gingerbread Toffee Nirvana, which combines gingerbread and sea-salted toffee caramel with their Infinite Black Nirvana. Other options include the Holiday Spiced Mocha, the Jingle Bell Muffin and the Red Velvet Chocolate Chunk Muffin. They are almost as sweet as the person you’re with!
Catch a Movie!
Slip on a fluffy sweater and warm boots, and venture out to AMC Village on the Parkway 9 or LOOK Cinemas this month to catch a movie. It’s the perfect place to snuggle in close to your date and get some high-quality entertainment at the same time! This weekend, see the premiere of Doctor Sleep, a Stephen King thriller about Danny Torrance, which takes place 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining; Last Christmas, a holiday rom-com about a girl who works as an elf and a handsome man who walks into her life; and Playing with Fire, a comedy about elite firefighters who must take on their hardest job yet: babysitting.
Finally, the best kind of cold weather date is something totally relaxing. Bring your sweetie to Grand Spa to get totally pampered from head to toe. This month, you can get specials, like the Vanilla Latte Spa Manicure ($38) and Pedicure ($58). Or, go for the blissful Sugar Coffee Massage ($165), which includes an 80-minute Swedish massage and scrub on the back or feet. For an extra special time, sign up for the Couples Retreat ($660), which includes an 80-minute Swedish massage, a customized facial, spa cuisine and a seasonal pedicure. This is so great, you’ll wish it was winter all year long!
