It's no secret that this time of year can be extra stressful and can make relationships feel especially strained.

So if you're looking for a date that'll take the pressure off of all the shopping, cooking and spending here are a few ideas ...

 

A Romantic Holiday Walk -- Grab a coffee and your man's hand and take a crisp stroll through town.

Outdoor Ice Skating -- There's something particularly magical about ice skating.Take a break from the usual by strapping those skates on and feeling like a kid again.

Christmas Light Shows -- A fun (and often free) activity that is sure to put both of you in a great mood is walking or driving down your town's "candy cane lane". Have fun looking at all the houses that are decked-out in decorations (and a blast making fun of the ones that just don't make the cut).
