Don’t forget to bring chocolate covered strawberries or hot chocolate along with you for the memorable ride.
Go Ice Skating
Ice skating is a winter cliché, but it’s a seasonal date staple for a good reason.

There is nothing like spending a day with someone you care about while cheering on a team that you’re passionate about! Scream your lungs out rooting for your favorite players or have some friendly rivalry if you two have opposing teams. Bonus points if you make it on the kiss cam!
Go Indoor Climbing
If you just can’t handle the cold but still call yourself a rock climber, head to an indoor climbing gym! Support each other by strategizing which rocks to climb when you’re bouldering or see if they have couples night where you try to help each other climb the same paths!

This will give you a good workout as you continuously burn calories making your way uphill, but the heart racing speed on the way down will make it all worthwhile.
This winter, don’t just stay indoors and let the season pass you by. There’s so much you and your loved one can do without hibernating by a fireplace. Enjoy every day of the cold weather with Pugs Gear to keep you warm!
