Pittsburgh Matchmakers Release the Top 10 Winter Date Ideas

Although here at Pittsburgh Singles Dating Service we’re not huge fans of freezing temperatures, we know you can’t hibernate at home all winter.  There is always something you can do to beat the Western PA winter blues.  Winter in Pittsburgh is beautiful, especially when snow starts to drop around Christmas and New Year’s.  There is just so much you can do with your boyfriend to really enjoy the winter wonderland here in Pittsburgh.

If you are looking to spice up your relationship this winter, and make the best out of the freezing temperatures, check out the ultimate winter date ideas from our Pittsburgh matchmakers.  After all, you can’t let your relationship get stale.

1. Build a Snowman/Have a Snowball Fight

Who said you had to be a teenager to play in the snow?  Come on now, it’s time to make the best out of winter and go out and play with your man.  Grab your boyfriend and head out in the backyard to build a snowman you’re proud to post on your Facebook and Instagram.

Sometimes, the snow can be a little fickle, but don’t worry because you can still make the best of it and have a snowball fight with your boyfriend.  Bring out your inner child and spend the afternoon laughing and playing as you toss snowballs at one another.

Building a snowman or having a snowball fight can be fun, especially when the roads are too dangerous to drive and you’re tired of being cooped up at home.  So grab your winter gear and go out and have a ball!

2. Decorate Your Christmas Tree

Let’s face it, Christmas is the most wonderful time of year.  With December around the corner, what better way to get your winter started and get into the Christmas spirit than decorating your tree together?

As the leading Pittsburgh matchmakers, we know that decorating your Christmas tree should be one of your number one date ideas this winter.  Not only will it get you into the Christmas spirit, but it will connect you and your boyfriend on a deeper level.

A great way to enhance this date activity is to make a whole day out of it. Bake some delicious cookies, sip hot cocoa, play some Christmas music, and decorate the whole house for Christmas.  Once you’re finished, make sure you take a picture to show all your friends and help everyone on your Facebook get into the holiday spirit, too.

3. Go Ice-Skating

If there is one sports team Pittsburgh is known for, it’s the Pittsburgh Penguins.  But don’t limit yourself to just watching your favorite players in action, get out there and enjoy some action yourself.  The ice-skating rinks are popping, so grab your man and practice your ice-skating skills.

Heading out to the ice-skating rink can be intimidating, especially if it’s your first time.  But don’t worry, you have your boyfriend’s hand to hold, and you have each other to grab onto if you take a spill.

4. Bake Cookies Together

Okay, the dentist might not want to hear this one, but we all have a sweet tooth, right?  One of our favorite winter date ideas is to have a ball in the kitchen as you bake together.  But since it’s the holiday season, the season for giving, why not make a few dozen to give to your friends and coworkers?

Just like decorating your home and Christmas tree, our Pittsburgh matchmakers encourage you to make a whole day out of baking together.  Bake cookies for yourself, for your family, and children in need.

If you’re baking cookies for those 21+, don’t forget to add a little eggnog or Irish crème.

5. Have a Holiday Movie Marathon

What would 25 Days of Christmas be without a movie marathon at home?  Come on now, it’s time to cozy up with your boyfriend and enjoy your favorite Christmas movies the entire month of December.

Not only is a great way to beat the freezing temperatures in Pittsburgh, but it gives you a chance to cozy up with each other and maybe even steal a kiss under the mistletoe.  Dust off those classics, like Home Alone, How the Grinch Stole Christmas or A Christmas Story, and settle in for a cozy night for two.

6. Steal a Kiss Under the Mistletoe

Do we really have to explain this one?  Some people call it “cuffing season,” but we just call it extra loving.  Why not take advantage of the mistletoe in your home and create a stronger connection with your boyfriend?

7. Go Snowboarding/Skiing

If sledding doesn’t give you the rush you’re looking for, then you know what comes next.  For the adrenaline junkies out there, our Pittsburgh matchmakers are thinking of you too!

One of our favorite winter date ideas is to go snowboarding or skiing.  There are great slopes in Pittsburgh where you and your boyfriend can enjoy a whole day together.  Don’t worry about the freezing temps, you’ll quickly warm up with all the action on the slopes.

8. Wrap Christmas Presents

If you have already decorated your tree, home, and baked cookies, then you know what comes next.  It’s time to grab your boyfriend and wrap Christmas gifts together.

You might not be a professional gift wrapper, but it doesn’t matter.  The idea is to wrap them together without letting your boyfriend pawn the entire job off on you.

9. Volunteer for a Cause

The holiday season is here, so why not make the best of it and volunteer to help others?  There are many people who are in need of help, especially during the brutal winters here in Pittsburgh.

If you can’t volunteer because of your busy schedule, don’t worry.  You can still donate and get a pass from Santa.  No one is telling you to donate your entire savings, but even with a few canned goods and food donations or monetary gifts to your favorite charity, Santa will still put you on his good list this year.

10. Get into the Spirit with Holiday Shopping

It’s time to shop ‘til you drop—just kidding.  But with Thanksgiving gone, it’s time to get down to business and start shopping for friends and family.  You clearly have a lot of people you’re grateful for, so it’s time to show them with a thoughtful gift.  Right now you have all the hottest deals at the malls, so get out and take advantage of them.  Believe us, your boyfriend will appreciate the help picking out great gifts for his mom and sister.

Don’t let the brutal winters in Pittsburgh bring you down and keep you cooped up.  Use the top 10 date ideas from our Pittsburgh matchmakers and get into the spirit of winter with your man.
