Romantic Gestures for the Holidays #RC1211

Romance Challenge 1211: Think of a rated G romantic gesture for the holidays that does not involve giving a gift.

To help guide your thinking, remember the other five love languages besides Gifts. Here are a few examples:

  • Quality Time – Prepare a CD of your holiday favorites, research the locations of the best Christmas light displays & see if your can find them together.
  • Words of Affirmation – Send your heartmate a heartfelt, handwritten Christmas card in the mail…even if you live in the same home.
  • Acts of Service – Spend an evening together doing Christmas cards. Reconnect with your collective past.
  • Physical Touch – Give your heartmate a comforting foot bath and massage after a long day of holiday shopping.

Let’s have some fun with this! Leave a suggestion in a comment for a chance to win a copy of “Love & Respect”.

  1. I’m so obsessed with the five love languages haha. Got a chance to read the book a couple months ago :)

    Quality Time & Acts of Service – Do some holiday baking together. Bake and decorate cookies.. make a gingerbread house, Make chocolates. Maybe even bring some goods to neighbors & family.

    Words of Affirmation – Leave a bunch of cute folded notes in the Christmas tree. Things you like and appreciate about your partner.

  2. Watch White Christmas together (yet again). We did last night. Brings back even childhood memories of the season. Best when accompanied with a fine glass of wine or a warm glass of apple cider. (Don’t forget to hang mistletoe!)

  3. I love these suggestions! I think this is a wonderful list of non-gift related ways of displaying love to your spouse or significant other. Thank you!

    An idea I have for quality time – go to your local ice skating rink for some fun memory making. Even if you can’t skate, all the more reason to hold on tightly to one another :)
