During the holidays, you get to take a break from the life’s hustle and bustle. You have more time and energy for romance. Holidays present a special time for lovers to reaffirm their love and commitment to each other. Here is how:

Make memories with your sweetheart. Share beautiful and meaningful holiday experiences to make the season special. Visit a place that holds significance to the two of you. Taking a trip to an interesting new place can be exciting, if you like to travel.

Fulfilling experience

The trip can be as affordable or as extravagant your pocket allows. You can also have a charitable experience, where you both help someone in need. Knowing that you jointly made someone else’s life better can be a fulfilling experience.

Spend quality and quantity time together. Now that you have a little extra time, hang out with each other. Carry out chores together. Have coffee or drinks in each others company. Have quality conversations. If you have children, spend time parenting them together.

Fantasies to reality

Engage in activities and hobbies that you both enjoy and watch as your affection and appreciation for each other grows. Set aside time for intimate moments and turn some of your fantasies into reality. Going down memory lane and revisiting significant events and experiences in your shared past can serve to bring you closer, especially if you focus on the positive aspects. Spend some time showing your appreciation to your partner, by verbalising the wonderful things you like about them.

As cliché as it may seem, giving each other gifts is a nice way to remind your partner that you treasure them. Gift giving should not just be about the monetary value of the gift. It is about the thoughtfulness and the love behind it.
