It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and even though lockdown is over, a lot of the country are still living under high tier restrictions – especially in the North East.
As the outlook for December looks a little bleak in terms of activities, we’ve looked to some of our favourite Christmas movies for some at home date night inspiration.
1. The Holiday – Build A Fort
Let’s be honest, one of the sweetest moments in The Holiday is the scene when Amanda joins Miles and his children in their fort.
Taking inspiration from this scene, building a fort and making it all cosy and be a perfect place to hang out, eat snacks and watch Christmas movies with your partner.
2. The Holiday Calendar – A Couples Christmas-Themed Photoshoot
The main character Abby, who is a photographer inspires the perfect at home Christmas date. Get dressed up in your ugliest Christmas jumpers and have a fun night taking pictures.
3. Elf – Make Your Own Christmas Decorations
Buddy the elf is one of the happiest characters on our TV characters this time of year, and he has a way of spreading holiday cheer wherever he goes. So like Buddy, spread the cheer with your own DIY decorations.
4. Home Alone – “Eat junk and watch rubbish” on Netflix
Enjoy Christmas like Kevin Mccallister: “I’m eating junk and watching rubbish! You better come out and stop me!”
5. The Knight Before Christmas – Bake Together
Cooking or baking with your partner can be a very romantic activity, so take inspiration from The Knight Before Christmas and get bead for the kitchen – and if a food fight starts, enjoy it.
6. Let It Snow – Have A Christmas Singalong
Singing is so much fun, whether you have the voice of an angel or not, having a good time with the person you love is all that matters. So, put on some tunes and sing your heart out.
