Christmas is just around the corner! And if you’re thinking of going out with your man instead of staying at home before the holiday season closes in, here are exciting things to do for an unconventional date night:
1. Visit an art gallery.
You can still connect with your partner even in silence. Go to an art gallery and appreciate beauty in a different form.
Try: Prelude art exhibit located at the lobby of Edsa Shangri-La hotel. It’ll be open until November 30, 2016.
2. Go to a bed-and-breakfast.
Your best bet is in Tagaytay and Laguna but with the Christmas season nearing its peak, you would want to go somewhere that’s not too crowded, like Bohol, Tarlac, Baguio, and Palawan.
3. Learn something new!
Pick something new that both of you have never tried before so you really go through the experience together.

4. Do something extreme.
Whether that’s skydiving, jumping off a cliff, or bungee jumping, overcoming your fears together could certainly strengthen your bond.
Do not be afraid to jump. In this short life that we are living, there should be no room for fear. So do the things that scare you the most. Let your heart beat fast. Let your adrenaline pump through your veins. Travel more and free yourself from inhibitions. Photo credit: Ronald Tan Location: Nagcarlan Falls, Laguna Have a similar photo or video to share?

6. Go on a food trip.
What better way to bond with your boyfriend than with lots of food?
7. Watch a movie under the stars.
Cliché as it seems, enjoying your favorite film in the comfort of your own car can be relaxing. There’s a drive-in movie theater in Clark, Pampanga and Nuvali, Laguna.
Try: Night Sky Cinema, Nuvali, Sta Rosa
8. Play board games.
Have a little friendly competition with your beau! Just remember to be a good sport and avoid being pikon.

9. Go star-gazing.
With a warm blanket, hot chocolate, and the cool weather kicking in it’s definitely the perfect time to cuddle and talk about anything under the sun – or rather, stars.

Enjoy a quiet night together with fine wine and good food.
Try: Villa Milagros in Rizal, which is set at the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountains. For more information contact them at 0917-679-0109.
11. Snuggle up in front of the fireplace with some hot chocolate.
It's warm, relaxing, and one of the most comforting things to do with your beau. Cold places like Tagaytay and Baguio are your go-to spots!
