Presents, presents, and more presents! That's what everyone's thinking about this time of year. We're all searching for that perfect present for that special someone.
What if that perfect present were absolutely free because you already have it to give?
Well, look no further. That perfect present is- drum roll please... YOU.
It's your presence.
(I couldn't resist a little holiday pun;)
Your presence is the greatest gift you can give your spouse this holiday season. The hustle and bustle of life pulls us in all kinds of directions all year long.
It seems that couples have so little time to spend together and enjoy each other's company.
Why don't you decide that this year will be different?
In my work with couples II talk a lot about the stages in a committed relationship and those of you who have worked with me know that my goal is to help couples evolve into the Conscious Love Stage. I call this the "Make it Happen" stage. So, instead of waiting and wishing that you had more time together - MAKE IT HAPPEN! When you make a decision to spend some quality time together it will happen. Need some ideas?
• Hot Chocolate Rendezvous
Cuddle up by the fire with your favorite blanket and two steamy cups of hot chocolate. You can even roast some marshmallows or make some yummy S'mores together. Don't have a fireplace? No problem. Grab that favorite blanket, a thermos, and a picnic basket and take it to the park.
• Dinner for Two
Short on cash or time for a dinner date at that fancy restaurant? Then bring the restaurant to you. Light some candles, put on that romantic music, and dust off those fancy dinner plates you save for special occasions. If you love to cook you can whip up your favorite meal or just bring home some take-out and enjoy it with a romantic, elegant flare.
• Winter Wonderland Fun
If you want to have some fun burning those extra holiday calories try some fun winter sports together. Head for the slopes or the ice rink or maybe catch a hockey game together.
It just takes a little imagination and a splash of determination to spice up your relationship. So what are you waiting for?
Wishing you all a very blessed, safe and happy holiday season!
