Dating Over the Holidays: Using Christmas Magic to Increase Romance in Your Relationship

It’s still a smart idea to inject more romance into your partnership, no matter how long you’ve been together. And there is no finer opportunity than Christmas to do so.

Why is this so? It’s a magical time of year, full of great date suggestions and chances to develop closer together. If your relationship is beginning to sound a little dull, here are 15 ways Christmas magic will bring more heat and romance to your relationship.

 

1:A Christmas Concert or a Ballet Performance

Nothing beats dressing up and heading to a concert hall to hear a live ensemble perform popular Christmas carols or songs such as Handel’s Messiah.

You might even go to a local theatre to see a top ballet company stage the Nutcracker or a comedy. It’s the ideal date idea for rainy, winter evenings.

 

2:Take in All of The Christmas Lights

And if you don’t go all out on the Christmas decorations, plenty others do, and they’re all about for you to appreciate.

If your town or region has a Festival of Lights, you can probably go. Aside from that, some neighbourhoods are renowned for their lavish light shows.

So, get in your vehicle, switch on your favourite Christmas song, and drive around admiring the decorations.

 

3:Ice Skating

This is a great way to spend an hour or two with friends – particularly if the ice rink is outside and decorated with Christmas trees, decorations, and festive music.

Hold together, flirt, and have fun. Remember to end the evening with a hot cup of hot cocoa or mulled wine.

 

4:Make Cookies For Your Friends

Baking Christmas-themed treats is enjoyable. The easiest way to start baking together is to browse through all of your favourite holiday treats and choose one to try. The majority of recipes are extremely simple to prepare!

Shop for the supplies, put on your favourite playlist, and get baking. The results are unbeatable: warm cookies straight from the oven, with sugary, buttery aromas wafting through the kitchen. Pour a bottle of milk for yourself and your sweetheart.

 

5:Put Up Your Christmas Tree

And if you don’t reside with your partner, you can always locate the right Christmas tree and spend an afternoon or evening decorating it. You may also choose an annual decoration to commemorate each year you spend together. You’ll amass a special set for the two of you over time.

Decorating the tree will become your own Christmas ritual, and will be followed by a special dinner. If it’s takeout from your favourite restaurant. Perhaps it’s a home-cooked, slow-roasted dinner. Whatever it is, you will be able to appreciate it in the soft, sparkling light of your new Christmas tree.

 

6:Go Looking for Unflattering Christmas Sweaters

If you want to have a lot of fun, go shopping for just one item on your list: a huge, hideous Christmas sweater. Thrift retailers usually have a large collection of absolutely hideous Christmas sweaters – just what you need, right?

It can be just the two of you cracking jokes, or you can invite your buddies to join you for even more laughs.

 

7:Go To A Christmas Fair

Take a stroll around a Christmas fair. It’s a feast for the senses, with stalls offering Christmas-themed items, holiday snacks, and, of course, lots of chances for hand-holding and stealing a kiss here and there.

 

8:Put on Your Favourite Holiday Movie

A regular movie ticket is quite costly, and Christmas is still quite expensive. Instead, stay at home and enjoy your favourite Christmas video.

Enjoy a warm cup of eggnog, hot chocolate, some of your baked Christmas cookies, and, of course, a soft throw to cuddle up with.

Don’t know what to watch? Here are a few timeless favourites, both old and new:

  • It’s a Wonderful Life’s a Wonderful Life’s a Wonderful Life’s
  • 34th Street Miracle
  • The elf
  • The Festivities
  • It’s about love.
  • I’m Alone at Home
  • The Wife of the Bishop
  • I’ll See You In St. Louis

If you want to see something particularly cheesy, Christmas Prince (and its sequel) are both available on Netflix.

 

9:Light a Candle of Your Choice

With herbal Christmas candles, dim the lights and crank on the fire. If you don’t have any, you will easily locate festive variations this time of year. Apple, spruce, fig, sugar plums, spicy cinnamon, and other warm spices are among the most common scents.

Lighting candles immediately turns a room into a romantic environment, and what happens next is completely up to you!

 

10:Make a Pair of Sexy Stockings

Stockings are a long-standing Christmas custom. Typically, they are filled with little presents and delectable snacks. So why not fill them with something exclusive for both you and your partner?

Sexy lingerie, romantic pieces, and something else unique to the two of you are ideal for tucking into your Christmas stockings.

 

11:Give Your Buddy a Christmas Letter

Our daily lives are filled with phone calls, emails, pings, updates, and “likes.” This is all well and fine, and you can continue to do so, but take things a step further and give your partner a romantic Christmas card in the mail.

It’s a lovely treat, and it’ll be something they remember for years to come.

 

12:Fondue Night

It’s a different way to eat and certainly something sexy, whether you go to a fondue bar or make fondue at home. You should make chocolate fondue and dip fruits and cookies in it. You may also make fondue the Swiss way, with gooey cheese ideal for dipping potatoes, rolls, beef, and vegetables. What a delectable meal!

 

13: “Elf On The Shelf”

This is a clever take on the classic Christmas theme of “Elf on the Shelf,” in which an elf is left in odd locations throughout the home.

Instead of the elf, take a snapshot of your lover and hide it in unexpected ways. It’s a fun opportunity for them to taunt each other and shake things up a little.

 

14:Go on a Stroll in a Winter Wonderland

Christmas is always a snowy season, depending on where you reside. Put on your outdoor gear and head for a stroll outdoors in the fresh air. Moving with your spouse does not sound cute, but it is a perfect way to improve your attitude, infuse more energy into your interactions, and make your return home that much more memorable.

Make sure you have a special treat ready for you before you go, such as hot cocoa, mulled wine, sweets, or all the recipes for a delicious homemade dinner.

 

15:Go Christmas Shopping as a Community

The closer it gets to Christmas, the crazier and more crowded the shopping malls get. So, if you wish to make Christmas shopping a romantic experience, make sure your hopes are realistic. Don’t, for example, set out to find the right present for anyone on your list.

Instead, make it a point to have fun and share quality time. What are the gifts? They’re an added benefit!
