Getting back to Life.

December 26th the day after Christmas and it is time to start getting your life back to normal. The last few weeks you have probably spend shopping and cooking for the holidays and now that the big day is over you should have more time to relax or get things done you have been meaning to do. Don't you wish that Christmas could last all year long at least the feeling of it. To capture this feeling of Christmas a little longer as you start to take down all you decorations make an event of it like you do setting them up. Plan a date to take down the decorations, maybe new years day, and make a little celebration of it play Christmas music, make a special meal to enjoy packing away your Christmas things. Spend the day being with the person you love and if you think about it hold back a Christmas present to give them after all the decorations are put away and stored. By doing this and making a celebration of it we are trying to keep that feeling of Christmas inside our relationship for the entire year. If everyone was as compassionate and caring as they are during the holidays we would see a huge difference in the world around us. As a couple however the main focus you want to put into this is that special feeling you get from being with your partner during the holidays. How did you react when you got your favorite gift? Shouldn't we be that happy with our partner all the year long, when they do the little things like take out the trash or do the dishes. Sometimes we forget how truly special the person we are with is, Christmas helps remind us of that, but why should we wait until Christmas to reward them?

Watch those reactions.

Merry Christmas everyone, hope you are enjoying your most magical of days. I also hope that you receive some nice presents this year. As you go through your day however I want you to do something that is very simple. Watch your partner open their presents and watch their reactions. See how quickly they search for your eyes when they open something that has importance to them. Count how many kisses you get on this blessed day, add in all the hugs and hand holding. Throw in all the snuggling and relaxing moments you spend with each other. Pay attention to how your partner reacts to you. At the end of the evening sit down and count your blessings I think you will be surprised how truly lucky you are. Merry Christmas to all and to all I wish a great relationship.

Ready yourself for the Big Day.

Tis the day that Santa comes and you need to make sure you have everything in place. Do you have your special presents for your partner ready and wrapped? Is the mistletoe hung on the headboard of your bed? No other holiday is as focused on family as Christmas. Take the time and enjoy being with the person you love this Christmas and if you have children bask in their glory as you snuggle with each other and watch how excited they are. With the coming of Santa tonight marks the quickest time of the year, soon it will be tomorrow and all the presents will be unwrapped, so slow it down a little tonight and spend some time kissing and snuggling around your Christmas tree, just make sure you are in bed in time for Santa to come.

Appreciate the People that make your life easier.

I know this blog is about couples but, there are I am sure people in your life that help make your relationship a little better. Maybe it's the baby sitter, or the person that cleans your house but these types of people help you attend more to your relationship, by taking things off your hands and allowing you to go on dates or just relax together. It could be the kid that mows your lawn or shovels your driveway, how about the person that does you hair for special occasions. What about the neighbor that get your mail while your away on a romantic getaway. Think about the people that make your life a little easier and then go out and pick up a little something for them. Get them a gift certificate to the local fast food joint, or a movie pass it doesn't have to be a huge present just a little token of your appreciation for them. No matter how small they will appreciate it.

Special Paper for Special Presents!

IF your like me every year you get your partner something special. Be it jewelry or sports tickets it is something that will make them do back flips after opening it. Well special presents deserve special wrapping paper. You can choose from a variety of types of paper but make sure it fits the person you are wrapping it for. So if your partner loves the smurfs find some smurf christmas paper and wrap only their special present inside it. By using only this paper to wrap their special present you will have no problem finding it on Christmas so that you can make them open it last. You can use this same trick on presents you want them to unwrap at certain times. Say for instance you got them some really nice sleep pants and want them to wear them Christmas Eve you could do the same thing. Plus by using paper that matches their personality it shows that you care that much more.

Gift Card Yourselves!

We sometimes lose sight of our relationship during last minutes before Christmas. We are thinking of everyone else we care about and sometimes our relationships get pushed to the back behind the family gatherings and parties. To make sure you make up for these missed times during your holiday season, make it a point to purchase a gift card to someplace every time you have to attend one of these functions. This way you know that when the holidays are over you will have more of a reason to go to the places you have gift cards for. Places like restaurants, movie theaters, or even miniature golf. Keep the cards in sight and you will defiantly use them in the up coming months. This way not only do you give yourself a little Christmas Cheer but you also get to catch up on the time you are missing with your special person.
