To really do it up, make like Amanda in The Holiday and rent a charming cottage for a night. Or, look for a cozy bed and breakfast nearby. Find one with a fireplace, make hot chocolate, and hope for a little snow.
Inspired by Kevin "decorating" his house in Home Alone, spend an evening completely transforming your place by stringing lights, making cut-out paper snowflakes, and lighting candles. The goal should be to make yourselves as cozy as possible.
The holidays can be super stressful, so if you're feeling pressured to make all the best meals and buy all the best gifts, take a break and have a pizza date instead, like they do in Almost Christmas.
Let Office Christmas Party be your guide as you set out on a mission to find the ugliest holiday sweaters imaginable. Look for attached tinsel, baubles, glitter. Then take cheesy, couple-y photos together.
Another way to fully embrace the season, perhaps in a way that's almost a bit too sporty? Go snowboarding, like Georgia does in Last Holiday. If it's your first time, just make sure you stick to the bunny slope.
Hot chocolate is a big deal in Polar Express, so make it a big deal on date night. Buy every variety available and spend the evening figuring out which one is the best. (Don't forget the marshmallows.)
