The holidays are here which typically means the diet is out the window until the New Year (hooray!) But before you grab the Quality Street tub, be sure to read our super indulgent date ideas below to really spoil your date this winter.

Cupcake making classes

If two hours of cupcake decorating and eating sounds like absolute bliss then call your date and head to the Cocoa Box in London. You will get the chance to discover how to create delicious cupcakes like a professional whilst sipping on cocktails. It’s a fun and tasty date idea to help get to know your date (and cupcakes) better. Not a fan of cupcakes? They also hold chocolate truffle making classes – mmm…

The Breakfast Club

Who said fry ups are only for the mornings? It’s Christmas, so if you want your plate piled high with mouth-watering sausages and eggs, you go for it. The Breakfast Club is the perfect spot for a breakfast date as you can order fry ups all the way until 5pm. So, if you haven’t got the hang of poached eggs to impress your date, fear not.

Ritz afternoon tea

If you’re passed first date stage, you may want to indulge your date even more to get your relationship onto the next level. Nothing says ‘let me spoil you’ like a tea date at the Ritz. You can both fill up on exquisite sandwiches, scones and of course the best tea. Find your fanciest shoes and enjoy the romantic, high class setting.

Wine tasting

Enjoy a walk around the vineyard with your date and then relax with a selection of handpicked wines. Learn the art of the ‘swirl and sniff’ and become wine connoisseurs. The best bit is there are so many different locations for wine tasting around the UK to choose from that there is sure to be one close to you.

A hearty roast

Strapped for cash this festive season? For a free dating idea, why not stay in and prepare your own soul warming roast. Get hold of the finest meat and go all out with the extra trimmings. If you don’t want to ruin Christmas dinner then try an alternative winter classic like a Shepard’s pie or casserole. Both tuck in whilst watching Christmas movies for the ultimate winter night in.
