Winter brings with it an inherent desire to stay inside where it’s warm and toasty, to relax, eat, and sleep. But for many fun couples, this sedentary mentality would never last a month, let alone an entire winter season.

And better yet, many of the winter date ideas below cost very little or nothing at all.

Consider these top ten fun and exciting winter date ideas for couples:

1. Go ice-skating, sledding, or snow tubing. This winter date idea works wonderfully as a double date or group date activity.

2. Plan a ski trip. From hot chocolate in the lodge in front of the fireplace to showing up your significant other on the slopes, this winter vacation getaway is great if you can spare the expense.

3. Attend an ice hockey game.Where you live may determine whether you are able to catch a professional ice hockey game or a college or high school ice hockey game. Either way, you’re sure to be in for a great time.

4. Stay at a Bed & Breakfast for a night or two. Nothing else spells romance quite like getting away from it all for a little while.

5. Visit a local winery or plan an entire wine tour. This event would work well either by yourselves or with your favorite couples. Don’t forget to secure a designated driver if you plan to indulge in more than a couple of glasses of wine. An even better idea – just enjoy a small sampling of a few varietals and bring home a few bottles of your favorite blends to enjoy in the privacy of your home.
