Frugal Christmas Date Ideas

There are only a few days left until Christmas! Who's excited?! {Me! Me! Me!}

Maybe you're looking for some ideas for some last minute frugal Christmas dates?
Here are a few things you and your sig. other could do together to celebrate the holiday season:

-Bundle up and take a walk around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights! If it's too cold for that, hop in the car and visit your favorite decorated areas. Make sure to take some warm cider or hot chocolate. If you're in the car, crank the Christmas radio station up loud {or find the Pandora Christmas station on your smart phone}!
-Make ornaments together. Yeah, not all guys are crafty or want to sprinkle glitter on ornament balls, but if you're feeling a little adventurous, grab some plain ornaments and decorate away!
-Decorate a gingerbread house together. You can buy the kits at the grocery store. Just don't eat all the shingles off the roof before you're finished decorating!
-Bake gingerbread or sugar cookies and decorate them together! Or, if you're in the traditional mood...learn to bake a fruitcake or a rum cake.
-Watch classic Christmas movies together. Pop some popcorn and drink a cup of eggnog while watching movies like "It's a Wonderful Life," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "Miracle on 34th Street," "Rudolph," and of course "Elf."
-Wrap your presents together. Not everyone enjoys the wrapping process of being Santa, so "suffer" together in sharing with the task. {This is not for everyone. Some of Santa's elves would prefer to work alone.}
-Start a Christmas tradition--something that fits you and your sweetie's couple personality. Be creative and have fun!

Do you have any additional Christmas date ideas? I'd love to hear them!
