Everyone loves seeing couples having a great time together! It’s important to find a great Christmas date idea and make it happen no matter how busy the season gets! Share yourselves enjoying that romantic moment together.
Sharing a Family Tradition
It’s fun to hear about other’s family traditions, and darling to do them for a Christmas date! Snap a picture of even the simplest tradition being enjoyed together. And if you want to start one together, check out our list of Christmas traditions for couples!
Enjoying a Cup of Hot Chocolate
This can be an out on the town cup, or mugs at home. Either give that cute Christmas couple pictures vibe!
Dancing In Front of the Tree
With so many romantic Christmas songs and Christmas love songs, one can’t help but feel the romance when the lights are low and the Christmas tree is on. Put your camera on a tripod and have a slow dance or a dance party in front of the Christmas tree!
Get those sugar cookie or gingerbread cookie cutters out, and document a moment of holiday baking for a very cute Christmas couple picture!
We love a great ice skating date night! Add some festive outerwear and you scream perfect Christmas date night!
Decorate Your Christmas tree.
Have one of you hanging an ornament and the other assisting in the moment.
Put the star on the tree.
I’ve seen one partner put the other on their shoulders to place the star. You could have one partner lift at the knees for the effect. Or, you can grab a step ladder and elevate one or both partners.
Cozy by the Christmas Tree
Cozy up on the couch with a lit Christmas tree behind you.
Snuggle up on the stairs.
Particularly if you’ve decked the halls and the staircase has garland, the stairs are always a cute choice! And they give those “waiting for to open present” vibes that make for some darling couple Christmas photos.
Pass the present!
Have one party pass a present to the other. You can get creative with poses and locations and they all turn out cute!
Create a gift-giving kiss.
Kneel in front of the Christmas tree facing each other. Have both parties hold the present and lean in for a kiss.
The Upsidedown present kiss.
Have one partner sit on the ground holding a wrapped present. Place the other party behind them, and lean in for a kiss. The person sitting should tilt their head back while the other leans in for an upside-down kiss. Channel your inner Spider-man moment for this one! It looks extra cute from the side.
Draw a heart in the snow.
Jump in the middle and snap a cute picture!
Build a snowman.
Take a mug shot-style photo of the three of you from the waist up.
Fun Props for Cute Couple Christmas Pictures
Grab some mistletoe and hold it overhead for a kiss
Candy Cane love
Purchase two large candy canes. Make a heart shape with each of you holding one of the candy canes.
Grab those Santa hats!
There’s something instantly more fun about holiday pictures with a Santa hat. Hold hands, snuggle up, or sit side-by-side for a cute couple’s Christmas picture!
Wrap Yourself in Lights
Snuggle up and wrap yourselves in a string of lights. This picture is cute during the day, but even more romantic and fun at night!
Lights in Front and Back
Sit in front of the lit-up Christmas tree with a string of lights in front of you. This helps with the backlit situation and balances the lighting situation while illuminating your faces.
Hold up a Merry Christmas sign.
You can cut these out, purchase a sign, or borrow from a decoration bin.
Make giant snowflakes.
These are darling for decor but are even more fun for pictures. Try to create a snowflake garland to hang behind you, and one to hold in tandem in front of you.
Surrounded by Presents
Wrap a bunch of presents and sit in the middle of all of them.
Hold a wreath.
Make sure both parties have a hand on the wreath and lean into each other! It’s one of our favorite Christmas couple picture poses we do every year!
Hang a wreath.
Head to the front door or find a cute rustic-looking building and snap a picture hanging the wreath together!
Work that Christmas book!
Grab a favorite Christmas picture book and get an overhead shot reading it to each other.
Wrap yourselves in garland.
Grab some greenery or some sparkly tinsel and wrap yourselves up and look at the camera. This looks even cuter with Santa hats!
Wrap yourselves in a blanket.
Cute and cozy pictures indoors or outdoors work great! Bonus points if you have a plaid, red, or festive-looking blanket to complete the mood!
