Take a light-seeing tour
Enjoy the seasonal scenery by taking a drive around town to check out the Christmas lights and decorations. To make it really cozy, prep some homemade hot cocoa to take with you.
Nothing's more romantic than a quiet drive together. Plus, your neighbors will be pleased that their decorating efforts are being appreciated.
Go for a hike
What better way to escape the holiday hoopla than to actually escape? While the rest of the city is busy frequenting the shopping malls, grab your honey and head for the hills.
Surrounding yourself with nature is a great way to slow down and get a much-needed breath of fresh air. If it snows in your area, have a playful snowball fight and truly take in the winter wonderland.
Have a movie marathon
Whether it's A Christmas Story, A Charlie Brown Christmas, or heck, even Bad Santa, all of us have a favorite holiday movie we love to watch each year. Share your top picks with your significant other and have an at-home date night.
Bing: The best holiday movies
Top the evening off with some holiday baking. Or, if you've had your fill of time in the kitchen, swap the cookies for some grown-up eggnog.
Helping the less fortunate will truly put your holiday stress into perspective. Packing boxes of canned goods may not seem terribly romantic, but volunteering is a great experience to share with someone you love.

Hold an ugly sweater contest
If the holidays are making you too uptight, remedy your stress by getting seriously silly. Take your date to the mall -- or better yet, the thrift store -- and pick out the ugliest Christmas sweaters you can find for each other. Get really goofy and make it mandatory to don the duds for the rest of the day -- you're both sure to have a few laughs.
If anything will get you out of the winter doldrums it's a sense of humor.
