Two Romantic Christmas Ideas for you to try or tweak to your own liking…
Celebrate the 12 Days Of Christmas either leading up to the 25th or starting on the 25th. Think of your spouse’s favorite things and surprise them each day. Here are some ideas:
First Day – One baked hen (a romantic dinner to start the 12 days off right)
Second Day – Two turtle candies
Third Day – Three French kisses
Fourth Day – Four Calling Friends – arrange for four of your spouse’s faraway friends to call them at different times of the day. Or go to dinner with two other couples.
Fifth Day – Five Golden Rings – give them 5 of their favorite donuts.
Sixth Day – Six Geese A Laying – Share breakfast in bed with a three egg omelet for each of you.
Seventh Day – Seven Days of resting – spend time planning a week long vacation. If you can’t afford it right now, dream for your bucket list.
Eighth Day – Eight Milky Way bars – or their favorite candy.
Ninth Day – Take your lady dancing. Or watch an episode of So You Think You Can Dance.
Tenth Day – Give them “10 words a-speaking” of your love. Can you make a synopsis of your marriage in 10 words?
Eleventh Day – Eleven cupcakes with piped icing on top. Or think of something a little more sexy 😉
Twelfth Day – Twelve drummers drumming in almost 12 minutes…Watch this documentary about Drum Corps, titled 11 1/2 Minutes.
Give A Love Letter To Your Spouse using the titles or familiar lyrics of Christmas Carols. It is sure to make your spouse smile!
Copy and paste this into a document and give it to your spouse via e-mail or snail mail.
See if they can find all of the Christmas Carols–there are a total of 24.
Make it really fun by giving them something special if they get them all right. 🙂
It came upon a midnight clear of what I wanted to give you, in fact it’s all I want for Christmas as well.
It started when I was rocking around the Christmas tree one silent night thinking of how to keep you from feeling a blue Christmas. Not that I mind the color blue, but a white Christmas would be better, don’t you think? I know you’re expecting nuttin’ for Christmas, which makes surprising you all the more fun.
When I was setting up our decorations, I found tucked away in a manger, something that gave me an idea. It was my Christmas wish from last year. What if I were to make a list and check it twice of all the highlights we’ve enjoyed together this year? We could read it together the night before Christmas while listening to the carol of the bells. As the jingle bells sound, I’ll look back on 2015 with wonder as I wander, and I pray you will as well.
I can’t wait for you to exclaim “Joy to the world! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!”
As we deck the halls with holly and ivy, it helps take away my fear of the grinch who stole Christmas a few years ago, ever coming back to our home for the holidays.
Honey, do you hear what I hear? It’s the sound of sleigh bells ringing and a reminder of all I want for Christmas. It’s to walk with you in a winter wonderland and remember gifts we’ve been given all year long.
I love you and thank God we get to celebrate another O Holy Night as husband and wife.
It has been a pleasure this year to share a monthly post about romance in marriage with you. I pray it has benefited you and given you ideas on what romance looks like practically from day to day.
I want you to know I count it a privilege.
Merry Christmas and A Blessed New Year to you and your spouse!
