Winter is the best season for fun, creative date nights.  There are so many different things you can do to get in the holiday spirit with your boyfriend or girlfriend… while saving money at the same time!  I came up with a few different date ideas that are inexpensive yet a good time for you and your crush!

  • Have a hot cocoa date. Go to your nearest grocery store and pick out different flavors of hot chocolate.  Make a variety of hot cocoa, make some cookies, and curl up on the couch!  Maybe even put on your favorite Christmas movie. 🙂
  • Do a surprise gift exchange at the mall. Set a budget and a time limit and have some fun!  Go back home and exchange your gifts with each other.  It’s not too expensive, but you still get to give and receive a gift!
  • Decorate your Christmas tree together. What’s a better way to get in the Christmas spirit than decking the halls!  Invite your boyfriend over, turn on some Christmas tunes, and set up some decorations!
  • Build a fort. Okay, this might sound super cheesy but it’s actually so fun… and not to mention, free!  Make some popcorn, pick out a movie, and chill out.  Why not channel your inner kid again?
  • Go on a horse drawn carriage ride. These are so fun and the perfect winter date!  If you live near a big city, bundle up and go for a ride.  It’s not too expensive and you get to enjoy the view of the city, too!

Which date idea are you going to try out?  Tell me in the comments below! 🙂

Love, Chels

I travel a lot, and I foresee a lot of travel in my future! We are coming up on spring and summer, and those are the times when most people travel. If you travel a lot or plan to in the future, there are a few useful packing tips that you NEED to know to make packing much simpler. These have really come in handy for me these past few months because I have been on the road a lot!

  1. Easy charger storage: Grab an old sunglasses case and store your chargers and headphones in it! This is an easy way to keep all of your essential electronic accessories in one place, and it protects them from getting tangled or broken in your suitcase.
  2. Bobby pin tip: I never know where to pack my bobby pins, because wherever I pack them they always end up disappearing by the end of my trip. Store them in an empty Tic Tac container to keep from losing them!
  3. Jewelry storage: Use an empty pill container to store your jewelry! This keeps it from getting tangled or broken and also helps you not to lose it. Nothing is worse than losing one of your favorite earrings during your travels!
  4. Protect your razor: Clip a binder clip to the end of your razor while traveling to both protect the blade and protect the things you pack from getting ruined by the blade.
  5. Lotion storage: If you want to bring travel-sized amounts of lotion or things of that sort, squirt a little in a contact case! These are perfect for storing liquids during travel because the lids close up nice and tight and prevent any leakage.

Happy travels!

XOXO, Chels

When’s a better time of year to go on a fun, festive date with your crush than Christmas time? With the holiday season finally here, there are tons of different themed date ideas to try out! Instead of the typical dinner-and-a-movie night, I came up with a few creative ideas to get you and your crush in the holiday spirit!

  • Have a Christmas movie/snack nice at home. Staying in for the night and watching a handful of classic Christmas movies sounds like the perfect (and not to mention inexpensive!) date night. Make some hot chocolate and enjoy!
  • Bake Christmas cookies together. This is one of my favorite things to do around the holidays. Make a bunch to give to friends and family and save some to snack on for yourselves later!
  • Drive around and look at Christmas lights. Where I live, everyone knows the good neighborhoods to look at Christmas lights in. Some houses go all out for the holiday season, and it’s fun to go for a night drive and search for them with your crush!Chelsea Crockett - Christmas Date
  • Do a Christmas DIY project. Who says guys don’t like to get crafty too? There are so many Pinterest-inspired DIYs to choose from. Maybe you want to decorate ornaments or try out a new recipe? You and your crush can pick you fave!
  • Wrap presents and decorate together. These jobs may seem like a chore, but with your boyfriend or girlfriend it can make it a little more enjoyable!

Hope you have a fun-filled Christmas!

Love, Chelsea
