Christmas dinner should be special no matter how many people you’re hosting, even if it’s just you and your partner, best friend or roommate. In fact, with just a little planning and a few simple recipes, your Christmas dinner for two can be just as wonderful as a big holiday feast.
You can stage twinkle lights, Christmas placemats and other seasonal table decorations. Then prepare a festive, warm and perfect meal for a special occasion. Of course, we’re not saying it has to be difficult. After all, the best part about having a little Christmas dinner is that you don’t have to do a ton of work (or cleanup!). So keep it easy, simple and stylish with these Christmas dinner ideas for two.
Here, you’ll find everything you need for an intimate holiday menu, including Christmas sides, desserts, and festive cocktails. And just like a big family dinner, this list includes plenty of options for entrees, like seared ribeye, chicken marsala, shrimp, and lemon garlic grits. Plus, there are classic winter recipes, like Braised Ribs, that will keep you warm and cozy on a cold December night. While all of these dishes are meant to feed a smaller crowd, don’t worry too much if you end up with leftovers, that’s still the best part!
