Make Your Relationship the Gift for the Holidays

In honor of the holidays, put your relationship first. Make your relationship the gift for the holidays by making your partner a priority. We can’t allow work, friends, or even our kids to keep us from giving our loved one significant time and attention. We must be intentional each day. Sometimes we lose sight of how to do this in the busyness of work, raising kids, paying bills, etc. However, you can do it! Below are some ways you can make your partner feel special and important.   

Greet Them When They/You Come Home

This is such a simple thing, but it can be a big deal. No one likes to be ignored, especially by the one person that you care about the most. No matter what you’re doing when they come home, try to at least look up and greet them when they arrive. If possible, also give them a hug and kiss! When you come home, try to greet your partner first before you start to do anything, it shows how happy you are to see them.

Have Date Nights

You already know how important date nights are! We’ve mentioned it almost in every blog post. However, we know this one can be the hardest. It can be difficult to find the time, money and come up with the ideas. But it’s important to spend some adults-only time without the kids. SpicyBox provides everything you need for an intimate and passionate date night. Order your first box today! 

Talk to Your Partner (Really Talk to Them)

This is another simple but effective way to show your partner you care. Carve out time during the day to talk to them. Discuss your days, your feelings and your hopes and plans for the future. Talking regularly is a key way to maintain and strengthen your connection. Without it, you will quickly begin to drift apart and find yourselves leading separate lives.

Take Interest in Them

Make sure to ask your loved one about their day, about their friends, or about what’s been on their mind lately. Take an active interest in them by learning about their hobbies and occupation. Try to also spend days with them doing what they like to do. Couples that show interest in each other’s interests tend to have a stronger connection. It also shows that you’re still interested in learning more about them.

Have Kid-Free Conversations

Make sure that not all your conversations revolve around what the kids did or said that day. And have conversations that aren’t interrupted by, “Finish your dinner!” or “Don’t skate inside the house!” Spend time talking after the kids go to bed or whenever you can give your partner your undivided attention.

Be Physically Affectionate

A simple touch, hug, or cuddle can mean so much to your partner, and it obviously doesn’t require much of a sacrifice on your part. It’s an easy way for you to show that you love them. Touching is a key factor to a lasting relationship.

Make Sex a Priority

This one can also be tough. We know that after you’ve fulfilled all your other responsibilities for the day, you probably feel spent and drained. However, a healthy sexual relationship is incredibly vital to a vibrant and committed relationship. So do whatever you have to do to make it a priority. If you are too exhausted at night, try getting up earlier in the morning, or making good use of nap time on the weekends! Or, if it works for you financially, have regular adults-only getaways for a night or two. You could also take advantage of SpicyBox’s passion tip to help spark up the flame!

Continue to Root Them On

When people have kids, they attend every concert, videotape every recital and cheer at every game. It’s natural to want to encourage your kids in their endeavors. Do you put the same enthusiasm into being your partner’s cheerleader? At the start of our relationship, we all made sure to support our partner’s ideas and pursue their life goals. After some time, are you still their biggest advocate? After the kids arrive, it’s important to make sure that we continue to cheer on and support our significant other.

The holidays are a beautiful time of year and just remember, make sure you let your partner know how much you love them and appreciate the relationship.

Keeping Your Relationship Stress-Free During The Holidays

Whether you’ve been together for months or years, the holiday season can bring a lot of stress to a relationship. But if you do any of these small things to keep your relationship stress-free during the holidays, then your relationship can come out of the season a lot stronger.

Make Time For Quality Time Together

While you’re out gift and food shopping and trying to make sure you have everyone and everything on your list, don’t neglect your relationship. We understand it’s a busy time of the year and it can be difficult connecting with your partner in the midst of it all. However, try to plan at least one just-the-two-of-you date. SpicyBox’s unique date ideas are perfect for the couple that wants to spend quality time together but doesn’t have the time to plan something special.

Lean on Each Other For Help

As couples are affected by external relationships including friends and family, it’s important to tackle the holiday season as a team. This means communicating when it comes to holiday spending, decorations and Christmas parties. It also means being supportive, kind, and respectful to each other even when you’re both stressed out and overwhelmed. You might be surprised at how much you can get done together. You can reduce stress, knock out your list and maybe even steal a few kisses in between.

Give Thoughtful Gestures

The holidays are a time for giving. No need to wait until Christmas morning to show your partner you care. You can spread out thoughtful gestures the entire holiday season. Thoughtful gestures can be bringing them a cup of tea in bed, cooking a meal for them, getting their car washed or putting a sweet note in their wallet. If you want to surprise your partner with a gift, don’t just buy a requested gift, give an unexpected gift—one that took a bit of thoughtfulness and creativity. Most people prefer gifts that are very thoughtful and unexpected. Hint! Hint! Surprising your partner with a SpicyBox date will be the perfect gesture!   

Create Small Rituals Of Connection

The holidays are all about traditions. What better way to be closer with your partner than starting your own traditions. Think about one ritual you could repeat year after year that would add more joy to your relationship. It might be having hot chocolate together on a holiday after the kids go to bed, watching a favorite movie together every holiday or running a 5K together on New Year’s Day.  Try even creating small rituals of connection, such as checking in with each other every evening after work or kissing hello and goodbye. Trying to maintain some level of connection in your daily routine is important in general. But these small rituals can help to keep your relationship intact during the stressful holiday time. 

Make Time For Sex

When you have a lot going on, it’s easy to let sex life get pushed to the side. However, it’s important to keep prioritizing intimacy if you want to make your relationship more resilient during the holiday season. Just like getting enough sleep, exercising, laughing together and making time for yourself can all be really helpful in reducing the overall stress in your relationship, making time for sex is just as important.
