Jingling Through December: Quick and Cozy Couple Time for Busy Parents


Date Night Ideas to try at home for busy parents

Hey there, super-parents! With the holiday chaos in full swing, finding quality time with your partner can be as challenging as untangling Christmas lights. But fear not! We've got your back with some quick and delightful ideas to sprinkle a little extra joy into your relationship during this festive season.

Christmas Movie Extravaganza:

Kick off a new tradition by selecting a Christmas movie each night. Take turns choosing your favourite classics or discovering new ones together. One of our favs at the moment is Netflix new movie "Family Switch".

Flashback Date Night:

Remember the early days of your relationship? Recreate a memorable date or relive your first date at home. Whether it's cooking the same meal, playing the same board game, or simply reminiscing over old photos, this is a sweet way to connect and cherish your journey together.

DIY Decorations:

Turn holiday preparations into a fun and collaborative activity. Create personalised ornaments or decorations together. Not only will you have unique decor, but you'll also have shared memories tied to each piece. It's a win-win! Every year we get the kids involved and create a bauble to hang on our tree.

Quick Getaway:

No need to plan an elaborate vacation. Steal a few moments for a mini-getaway. It could be a walk around the block to see the holiday lights, a coffee date at a festive cafe, or even a quiet evening stroll in the park. It's amazing what a short escape can do for your connection.

Surprise Notes:

In the hustle and bustle, leave surprise love notes for each other. Slip a sweet message into their lunchbox, on the bathroom mirror, or even in their work bag. These small gestures go a long way in keeping the romance alive.

Tech-Free Zone:

Declare certain times of the day as tech-free zones. Put away the smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Use this time to focus solely on each other.

Candlelit Dessert Night:

After the little ones are tucked into bed, surprise your partner with a candlelit dessert night. Indulge in some sweet treats, share stories, and revel in the warmth of each other's company. It's a simple yet intimate way to end the day.

Remember, it's not about the grand gestures but the moments you create together. These quick and easy ideas will not only add a touch of romance to your holiday season but also remind you both of the magic that brought you together in the first place. Happy holidays! 🎄💑
