Wondering what do you get your spouse for Christmas?
I am one of those last minute shoppers … who ventures out on Christmas Eve … wandering the mall … in search of that perfect gift for Karen … sometimes I know what I am looking for … but many times I am praying it will jump out and say “Here I am!”
Honestly … that’s how I got into this insane habit … I had a great streak going of seeing something nice on a mannequin and saying: “I like that … Karen will like that … let’s get it and get out of here!”
I’d have it wrapped … then head home … place it under the tree … and wait impatiently for Christmas morning …
And on Christmas day she opened it and loved it!
But there’s got to be a better way to choose a gift … so we’ve played with that all time greatest Christmas gifts for a true love list … the 12 days of Christmas for some inspiration … hum the tune in your head as you read them … but don’t sing the parentheses! …
The promise of no one else but me (unconditional commitment is foundational to marriage)
2 listening ears (one for facts and one for feelings)
3 little words (I love you!)
4 financial planners (to help secure your financial future)
5 dates together (give some quality time and attention to each other)
6 sexless backrubs (relieving stress … )
7 TV shows a turned off (so you can tune into each other)
8 encouraging words (speak life into each other)
9 nights of nookie (the exclusive love language of married couples … enjoy!)
10 10 minute devotions (spiritual connecting builds intimacy)
11 tingling touches (don’t lose those loving “feelings” hold hands, etc … )
12 acts of kindness …(take some chores off your partner’s list!)
Why not figure out a way to “wrap up” one or more of these for your true love this Christmas?
