When I asked on my Instagram stories what kind of holiday content you wanted to see, I was beyond shocked when this was requested the most… First, because I’m single as a Pringle and second, because I’ve never done anything like this before! But, I’m so excited to bring you my top Houston holiday date ideas today. Also, if any single guys are out there reading this, I’m available for any of these dates😜
1. Ice Skating at Discovery Green
Okay, let me start by saying all of these are cliché but whatever that is what Christmas is for! But, seriously ice skating would be so fun to go on a date with someone. Also, right across from Discovery Green is the Marriott Marquis and you could go over there and grab a bite to eat after! What a fun evening.
2. Zoo Lights
This one is huge if you’re not from Houston, and even when you are from Houston this is such a magical time at the zoo! Make sure to buy some hot chocolate and then walk around all evening.
3. See The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol
This is one of my more “mature date” ideas on the list hahah. This would be such a great idea if your girl or guy loves the theater or music or anything of this nature! There are also a ton of great restaurants in Downtown Houston you can go to before for dinner.
4. Festival of Lights at Moody Garden
If you don’t mind a little bit of a drive this place is so cool! There is so many different things to do while you are here! If you have a couple hours to spare come here for some holiday fun!
5. Jingle on the Boardwalk
Again, if you have a little extra time on your hand and you don’t mind driving a tiny bit then head to the Keamah Boardwalk! There are different activities on different days to make sure to check the schedule here before you head out!
6. Christmas Tree Farm
Any basic girl will love you even more if you take her to a Christmas Tree Farm and get a cute picture of her hahaha. This is so fun and unexpected if you’re inviting your date out to dinner and just run her to a Christmas Tree Fram on the way!
7. Christmas Movie + Christmas Cookies
Again, any basic girl will cry if you make her the cheesy Santa or snowman sugar cookies and put on a Hallmark or Lifetime Christmas movie for her. I promise this one will win you major bonus points.
8. Christmas Lights + Hot Chocolate
Last but not least such a classic, driving around and looking at Christmas lights. I would recommend going to more expensive part of Houston so you get to see the big houses and their way over the top Christmas decorations. And major points if you surprise your date with hot chocolate in the car to keep warm!
I hope you guys found this helpful and got a new idea or two for a holiday date! Also some of these are great to combine together for an ultimate Christmas date night!
