With Christmas edging ever closer, the team here at DateinaDash are bursting at the seams for the festive wonders which fill London over this special time of year. As London’s number 1 speed dating hosts, we simply cannot wait to emerge from what seems like an everlasting lockdown. Plus, in the true spirit of Christmas, we’re on hand to help get your virtual date ideas sorted so you can enjoy a fun filled Christmastime with your new love interest!
Turn up the magic!
However much you chat, don’t make your date night another Zoom call! Instead add a Virtual Entertainer such as a close hand Magician to add a touch of magic to your virtual Christmas date! Let’s be honest, office parties can sometimes be a bit awkward especially with a plus one and even more so at the start as nobody has had the time to have a few (responsible) drinks and get into the party spirit. So why not just keep the magic between the pair of you and enjoy each other’s company, albeit virtually! A great idea is to hire a close hand magician or caricaturist to give your gorgeous new date a spellbinding virtual treat!
Dress to impress!
Just because you’re not actually going ‘Out Out’ doesn’t mean you can’t dress up like it! Give your virtual date night a theme, make it fancy dress, 80’s, Star Wars or just classic Black Tie. Getting ready for a night out is half the fun, choosing an outfit, sending a pic to your friends, changing your outfit (for the 12th time) and fixing the perfect cocktail so having a dress code is a must! And the beauty of a virtual party is you don’t have to brave the winter weather and to wait for a taxi! Plus, your date will be checking you out, whether you’re on screen or in the flesh so what do you have to lose?
Build a Spotify playlist and share it
Want to go one better than just getting dressed up and partying the evening away? As the old saying goes, never underestimate the power of music! Hearing your favourite song (especially after a couple of glasses of fizz) makes you feel great doesn’t it? So, why not get you and your date to build a Spotify playlist to have on in the background while you chat, flirt, drink and dance the night away! Plus, by asking your date to add in their favourite tunes too, it’s definitely more collaborative and fun than sorting it all yourself!
Hire a Virtual Musician or DJ
Want to really give your date a night to remember? Why not go all out and consider booking a Virtual Musician or DJ for the evening! This will allow you to fully kick back, relax and enjoy the evening without having to worry about the tunes and what’s up next!
Binge watch Christmas films on Netflix
Whether you love Netflix Christmas specials or think they’re the definition of cringe, there’s no denying the fact that watching them back to back is pretty damn addicting. This year, celebrate the holidays by binging all of your favourite classics with your Christmas bae from the comfort of your own homes. Why not set up some intervals and discuss the films as you both watch them? Discuss your favourite bits or the plot in general. What you love and why you just can’t get enough of this Christmas film over the next! You get the idea…
Decorate a Gingerbread House
OK, so depending on your baking skills you can either bake your own, or buy a ready baked gingerbread house. The date idea? Set up your cameras and see who can produce the best house in a set time! Or the most original design. The choice is yours. C’mon, is it even really Christmas if you don’t bust out some baking skills. Move over The Great British Bake-Off, this is your time to shine. The winner gets first dibs on munching their way through their delicious design, or a prize of your choice ;-)
Virtual Cooking Class
If you and your new love interest aren’t the best in the kitchen, why not bite the bullet and take advantage of the surge in virtual learning options? Take a look at the endless choices available, and book yourselves up to an online cooking class. Maybe you can learn how to make a delicious Christmas dinner without leaving it too much to chance. Or how to create the perfect mince pie, or decadent cheesecake for those with a super sweet tooth? Whatever you decide on, we’re certain it’ll get you in the Christmas spirit in absolutely no time at all!
Other Quirky date ideas in London
See London lit up in all its finest sparkles from the London water line There is something very magical about seeing London all lit up for Christmas.

Feeling like you want to wow your new love interest or make a lasting impression or someone you’ve got your eye on, this could be just the ticket!
Festive Christmas Markets!
It wouldn’t be a Christmas market if you don’t munch down a delicious Bavarian sausage, would it?! It's not always the most delicate food to eat on a date but sharing a hot dog is pretty romantic....right?! Of course, if sausage isn’t your game, why not enjoy a tasty German gluhwein for a little Christmas tipple with a twist? Whatever you choose, we’re certain you’ll enjoy the build up to Christmas; just be sure to wander the markets in a COVID safe way while soaking up the Christmas spirit in the city.
