10 Mother-Daughter Date Ideas for the Holiday Season

10 Mother-Daughter Date Ideas for the Holiday Season

I love spending one-on-one time with my daughter. Because she is my second born, I do not get as much alone time with her as I did with my son who was an only child for 4 years. Add that fact with the busyness of the holiday season and it can be very challenging to have one-on-one time at all. I put together this list of fun and relatively affordable mother-daughter activities and I hope you will leave comments with your ideas as well. Let’s make quality time with our children something we never take a holiday from.

Mother-Daughter Date Ideas

  • Visit your local zoo.
  • Pack a picnic lunch and go to the museum.
  • Pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child (thru Nov. 19).
  • Make cupcakes together.
  • Work together at a food bank or other community service project.
  • Go window shopping at the mall (or shopping at the mall with a $20 budget).
  • Buy a toy for a Salvation Army Christmas Angel.
  • Have a picnic at the park.
  • Get your nails and/or toes done.
  • Go to a movie.



Have you done any of these activities with your daughter? What other mother-daughter date ideas do you have?  Feel free to leave a comment. Share and let’s talk about it.

  5. My daughter and I like to take lunch dates now and then to a “girly” restaurant or tea room that the guys won’t go to. We like to go to the library, too. We share our finds and usually find a movie that we can watch together!

  6. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else
    experiencing issues with your site. It appears as though some of the written text
    within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening
    to them as well? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thank you

  7. No matter if some one searches for his essential thing, so
    he/she desires to be available that in detail, therefore that thing
    is maintained over here.

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an
    established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?

    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not
    sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Appreciate it

    The center gauge is the character’s shield, which dictates how
    many hits the player can take. They can’t be satisfied by smothering them with cupcakes or changing
    the TV channel, so it’s important that you have a handle on activites in your bakery before you pick up that
    phone and start making that cake. He killed the pawnbroker to
    prove an idea but took her money and valuables. Of course, even critics with good Despicable Me review scores may brush it aside quickly, since Inception is finally on the way next week.
    Adorable Red Wagon to sit and and be pulled around. My only complaint with Twister Mania is its steep price point of $49.
    From all accounts, they led what appeared to be a glamorous lifestyle until World
    War II hit. Instead of aligning your hands and feet on colored
    circles like the original game, in Twister
    Mania players must avoid, break, or fit into silly shapes that will have you and your friends bursting out into laughter.

  12. Hello fantastic blog! Does running a blog like this require a
    great deal of work? I’ve very little expertise in computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog
    owners please share. I know this is off topic however I simply needed to ask.
    Appreciate it!

  13. Before leaving Phuket hotels for sightseeing, ask for directions on how to get to Old Town and see
    its attractions. * Verify the services included and if prices are comprehensive of taxes.
    In most cases the earlier you book your room the less expensive it will be, and the better your chances of getting the
    room and location that you want.
