Get Into the Holiday Spirit With These Festive (and Free) Winter Date Ideas

Just because you're singing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" on repeat to go along with the frigid temperatures, doesn't mean you actually have to, you know, stay inside (although we also love that option). There are so many fun activities that you and your significant other can do together during the Winter months that won't cost a thing. Whether it's snuggling up by the fire with some homemade hot chocolate or having a friendly snowball fight, you can bet that Winter date nights aren't going to be boring this year. Get ready to warm up your relationship all Winter long thanks to these free and totally festive date ideas. It is the most wonderful time of the year!
