In winter, everything is much harder to organize, no matter if you live in Finland with horrible winters or Australia with mild winters. But don’t let bad weather ruin your dates. Here are a few amazing winter date ideas for all gay couples (or potential couples) to try out and enjoy:
When’s the last time you’ve been to a theater to see a play or a musical? If you used to be a gay theater kid growing up, remember the good old days on your date. There are always various plays being brought to the theater near you so all you have to do is get your tickets in time, get all dressed up and take your partner on a classy date. And most musicals have a strong connection to the gay community and plenty of LGBTQ+ attendees so you’ll feel right at home.
If all you want to do in winter is warm up, then some wine or whiskey might help. Tastings are very classy events that will make you feel all elegant and important, and you might even learn a thing or two. Some events of this type even let you create and bottle your own drinks to take home as a nice little souvenir from your date. The night will definitely end with both of you a bit tipsy and warm, and all you have to do after is hit the bed or be a bit naughty.
Show the world that yes, all gays can sing beautifully by belting out your favorite pride songs. Order some drinks, queue up a few songs and leave your hearts on the stage. If you’re embarrassed to sing in front of other people, you can book a private room where you can practice your duets and go wild while dancing and singing.
When the weather outside is frightful and you don’t want to leave the house, you can have a nice cozy little date at home. Preparing a romantic dinner can be a complete surprise for the other person or you can make it a couple’s activity and cook together, sharing laughs and stories. And even if either of you is blessed with cooking skills, you can still have a tasty meal at home by relying on ready made meals delivered to your house. These meals are prepared by chefs with all the top ingredients, so it will be like eating at a restaurant but with all the privacy and comfort of your house where you can be 100% authentic.
If you actually love the cold and snow, you can still have a nice outing with your partner. Take them to the ice skating rink and try to do some twirls and jumps on the ice (or at least waddle around trying to make your partner laugh). You will get bonus points if you provide matching winter beanies and gloves so you can take super adorable photos with mulled wine and fresh donuts.
Cold winter air and wetness of rain and snow can wreak havoc on your skin and hair so why not organize a nice spa day/evening for the two of you? You can either drive to your nearby spa and order a couple’s treatment together with massages, facials, Jacuzzi and champagne, or you can do the same at home. If you choose the latter, surprise your partner with a nice hot bath, aromatherapy with scented candles, plenty of masks, moisturizers and serums to revive your skin and a nice massage as icing on the cake. And who knows where the night can take you when massages are involved!
These date ideas will not only bring you two closer together, but also allow you to stay warm and active. Enjoy your gay dates and make sure to relax and have plenty of safe fun!
