Christmas is the time to spread cheer and happiness all around. Shower your love and care to those who matter and those who need it. We’re pretty sure your boyfriend too is waiting for you to give him some special surprise this Christmas. Go ahead and read the following romantic things to do for your boyfriend this Christmas.
1. Go for a candlelight dinner
Candlelight dinners are always romantic and serene. Make reservations to his favorite restaurant or a restaurant he confided in you that he would love to visit. Another great idea is to prepare a meal for him and decorate the house only with candles and ribbons.
2. Give him 12 love boxes
This gift is based on the ’12 days of Christmas’ song. What you have to do is get 12 boxes of the same pattern. Keep real presents only in two of them, while the others will have reminders like concert tickets, movie tickets, photographs of you two and so on. You can gift him all the boxes on Christmas itself or start giving them 12 days before Christmas.
3. Give him love coupons
Love coupons are a special way to show your love for him and create special moments for both of you. You can write ‘back massage’, ’25 kisses every day’, ‘sing your favorite song’ and such romantic activities.
4. Plan a getaway
If you live in the city, you can go to a small town to spend your Christmas away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. You can also visit the countryside and spend a romantic weekend there.
5. Gift a ‘lovebook’
Here’s what you need to do to create a lovebook. Get a fancy scrapbook and make it look more Christmas-like by sticking holiday cards on each page for your loved one, little felt Christmas trees, snowmen, wreaths and such other things. Make the holiday cards small, almost like a note and write something special about him on each. Wrap the book in gift paper and tie a ribbon. Your lovebook is ready!
6. Kiss him under a mistletoe
‘Romantic’ is the right word for this gesture! Kissing your boyfriend under a mistletoe is something special and it is also said to bring good luck to the couple. You can also blindfold him, hold his hand and lead him to the mistletoe and then kiss him softly. He is sure to remember this moment forever.
7. Write a poem for each day until Christmas
You can start writing poems 10 days before Christmas and present him all of them on Christmas. Or else you can gift him a poem everyday until Christmas and maybe read out all the poems to him on Christmas day.
8. Give him a love jar
A love jar is bound to be a sweet and romantic gesture for him this Christmas. You have to get a jar and keep candy at the bottom of it. Fold 10 pieces of paper and keep them on top of the candy. Before doing that, write on each paper a reason why you love him. Give him this super cute gift on Christmas and see his face break into a smile!
9. Dance to Christmas songs
What would be a more romantic thing to do than dancing to the tunes of slow, Christmas songs? Keep some fast-paced tracks first and dance away happily with your loved one. As night sets in, change the mood by swapping the fast Christmas songs with some slow ones.
10. Bake cookies and chocolates
To celebrate the holiday season and bring in festive cheer in a romantic way, bake cookies and chocolates only for him! Make chocolates in the shape of a Christmas tree, wreath, gingerbread and more such holiday items.
These are few ways in which you can spend a beautiful Christmas with your special someone.
