Outdoor skating rinks are now opened just about anywhere. You get a little bit of a workout in while out on the rink and it gives you the perfect excuse to hold hands with your partner.

Sip on some hot cocoa and walk around the mall to check out decorated Christmas trees, entertainment, and special events.
5. Christmas Tree Picking
This may seem basic but it’s a really easy way to get into the holiday spirit as a couple. After you pick out the perfect tree, get more quality time in by decorating it at the house.
