As Christmas looms closer, make sure you keep up your romance game with these awesome ideas for romantic tips for the holidays so that you can make your partner feel loved during one of the most special seasons of the year.
Homemade and Sentimental
Your sweetheart will love anything made from your own two hands—it’s a proven fact, ladies. Put in the thought, time, and effort to make him a present he’ll adore, simply because you made it for him. Whether it’s a scrapbook of great memories you’ve had together, or a jar filled with pieces of paper that detail the little things you love about him, you’re almost guaranteed to see happy tears on this one. If there’s any time of year to make our loved ones feel special, it’s right now, so do your best to make him smile all winter long.
The Classic Bouquet
There are few men who enjoy receiving a beautiful bouquet of flowers, at least in my experience. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get your man an offer of some lush plants from FTD. If he texts you that he’s having a hard day, select a same-day delivery and get the arrangement to him as quickly as possible to brighten his day and let him know you’re thinking of him. His coworkers will ooh and ah, he’ll be overwhelmed with the attention, and with appreciate this thoughtful gift on a tough day.
A Special Lunch for a Special Guy
Another office surprise idea right here, ladies. Ask him to be in his office at around noon and use Door Dash to deliver his favorite meal right to his desk. Whether it’s a dish from that restaurant around the corner or the pho you know he loves from the Vietnamese spot across town, the savory surprise will definitely make his day. If you’re able to get over there during the day, deliver the meal yourself and really blow his mind.
A Vacation for Two
The holidays can be stressful, what with all the planning and scurrying around to get everything done. Give him a well-deserved break with a quick overnight vacation a few cities over in a posh hotel. Don’t leave the room and simply bask in each other’s company, ordering room service and watching all the movies you’ve missed. Cuddling in the covers and spending quality time together will be just the thing you both need to recharge your batteries to make it through the holidays.
Take Advantage of the Season
It’s never been easier to plan a date than it is during the holiday season—ideas are all around us. Maybe you’ll decide to go on a Christmas tree search, or perhaps you’ll knock his socks off with a trip to a showing of his favorite classic Christmas movie. Make some hot chocolate, fill up your thermoses, and take him out for an evening to enjoy the seasonal scenery. Some cities have neighborhoods dedicated to the season and done up in lights and decorations for the month of December, but if yours doesn’t, don’t worry. A trip around your town perusing the intermittent Christmas bulbs is sure to delight him as well, especially if you’re playing a Christmas cd in the background. Need another idea? Consider volunteering together. Giving back to your community is a great bonding experience and will help both of you feel a whole lot better while giving you great perspective during this holiday season. Whether it’s a soup kitchen or organizing a toy drive together, he’ll love your thoughtfulness and you’ll make memories to last a lifetime.
Maybe the special person in your life is stressing about how he’s going to get all of his responsibilities done before Christmas, so take some time to evaluate what needs to be done and see what you can help with. Whether it’s making sure the house is clean before guests come over, running out to grab the last-minute Christmas gifts on his lists, or picking up that dry cleaning for him, he’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness and effort. It will make the holidays more enjoyable for both of you and help you remember the reason for the season.
