Now that the Holiday Season has kicked into full gear, we are busy busy busy! Between shopping, baking, decorating, wrapping, and social gatherings, making time to spend with your significant other can be challenging. Instead of putting off 'us' time during the holiday rush this year, I am doing a grown-up version twelve days countdown with K-Y® Yours+Mine®. It's a chance to celebrate one another and keep the passion alive through the busy season, thus igniting 12 Days of Passion!
Call me old-fashioned, because I am, but nothing is sweeter than a handwritten love note. Leave it as an unexpected surprise around the house or place it in his pocket for him to find at work. Make it sweet or make it romantic.
Day 2 Treat yourself to Pretty New ThingsAs a treat for both you and him, pick up something you feel both comfortable and sensual in. It could be a lacy red chemise or an over-sized night shirt. Purchasing a new perfume or lipstick always makes me feel flirty.
Day 3 Wear Red LipstickRed lipstick is sure to ignite the passion. Wearing your favorite shade of red can give an instant boost of confidence. If red is not a color your normally wear, he'll totally be taken by surprise. You might want to make sure it is a kiss-proof formula though!
Traveling during the holidays? Isn't that just more stressful? Not when you pick a serene destination. Anywhere with a big beautiful ocean where we can stroll the beach holding hands and watch a romantic sunset is golden.
Day 5 Staycation
If you are not able to get away to a far away destination plan, a mini-weekend getaway to a special spot in your town. We have some amazing hotels in Downtown Seattle, get a room with a jacuzzi, and schedule a couples massage at the hotel spa.
Shuffle through your DVD collection and find something that you both enjoy. We are all about the scary movies even during the festive months. Complete the movie experience with candy and popcorn.
Day 7 Bake for him
With all the holiday baking for others make time to whip him up a special treat. Pie is a sure winner every time. Instead of the usual yoga pants and a t-shirt covered in flour, put on a pretty apron and heels for the occasion.
Day 8 Even better, let him bake for you.
One of the best ways to reconnect is to free yourself even for a few hours from technology. Unplug from social media, calls, texts, computer work, and turn off the TV. Knock out the noise and focus on what is really important. Not staring at your phone every 5 minutes, but staring into those beautiful eyes you fell in love with.
They say a sure way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Schedule in a true romantic Date Night and go out to dinner at your favorite restaurant or stay in and cook a special meal together.
Day 11 Spice up your intimacy with K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants®After that Date Night move on to the next course, or dessert if you will. As creative individuals we love finding new ways as a couple to share intimate moments. Even if we are still in that glory phase without any kids taking up our date night time there can still be an element of complacency that comes with any long-term relationship.
K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants® inspire a better intimate experiences and could lead to a deeper emotional connection. An invigorating warming sensation for him. A thrilling tingling sensation for her. Put the two together for a totally new, unexpected experience. It can be more exciting. More satisfying. More everything. It may have you feeling more passionate and closer than ever.
I used this $2 off one K-Y® product coupon while shopping at Walmart. K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants® can be found in the Family Planning aisle.
Day 12 RELAX
With all that is going on around the holidays take time to do absolutely nothing but enjoy each other’s company. Maybe have a go at repeating some of those 12 days! Putting effort into your relationship and making time for intimacy makes you a better connected and happier couple. I hope these ideas inspire you to ignite the spark and replace holiday stress with 12 days of romance!
