I can’t even believe I’m writing this, but Christmas is getting close. Close enough to start thinking about what you are going to give your man. If you are anything like me, I never know what to give my husband for any holiday. He never knows what to tell me to give him either.
Give Your Partner the Gift of Romance
What man doesn’t love a night where you spend your time and attention meeting his needs? For Christmas this year, you can give him an experience instead of a tangible gift. Give him something that is romantic and will get him and you ready for a night of falling in love.
For the men out there looking for romantic gifts for their wives, these ideas can be used. Woman are not as different as you might think when it comes to romance.
Build Anticipation For Sexual Intimacy
Start ahead of time telling your spouse of the night you have planned for them. It is up to you how much time you give. If it is a little last minute, then a few hours notice would work as well. If you have more time than that, give them a day or two notice.
Building anticipation of an exciting night can help you both enjoy it more. Think of the excitement you feel when you plan for a trip or outing. You spend a lot of time thinking about everything you will do. It makes the experience that much greater. It is no different when you are planning for a night of sexual intimacy.
Invite Them to Have an Intimate Night
It is time to figure out how you plan to tell your spouse what you have in store for them. Leaving lingerie somewhere they will find it can send a powerful message.
Send a text the day of and tell them you have a surprise for later on that night. You don’t have to go into detail. Leaving it up to their imagination can be a great way to build anticipation.
You could go a more formal route and send them an invitation or create a private facebook event.
Make a Plan For the Evening
Take the time to come up with a plan for the evening. If you feel you need a sitter, then go ahead and arrange that. Overnight sitters can be hard to come by, so if that is the case make the plans for when they are tucked in bed.
Decide how much time you have to spend with each other. Depending on your time limits will determine what you can do with each other. Just be sure to leave plenty of time for a long session of love making.
Whatever you decide to do for the evening, try to make it out of the usual. It will make the night even more fun.
Come Up With a Sexy Game
Playing a sexy game can add a lot to your night. Coming up with your own game can be simple. Make a paper die and write actions on each of the squares. That will take the guessing out of what you and your spouse can do. Write whatever foreplay moves you like the most.
Another simple idea is to do a truth or dare game. You can write up some questions and dares ahead of time. Just make sure they are focused on being intimate with one another.
Pick The Right Room For Romance
Decide which room of your house you plan to spend your time. Create an atmosphere that you both will like. If you plan to do this during Christmas, camping out in front of your tree or the fireplace might be nice.
Of course, you need to use discretion here. Children are a real mood killer. If either of you think your kids are going to come out of their rooms and see you, then it might be best to stay in the bedroom.
Set Up The Room
You can set out candles or play soft mood music. If you want to spend your time on the floor, put out a blanket and pillows. Setting out hot chocolate can be fun to sip on. I personally like drinking sparkling cider on romantic nights. Whether you come up with decorations, at least try to clean up a bit before the night.
Decide What to Wear
Pick out something to wear that you will feel sexy in. It doesn’t have to be lingerie, but something you feel you look good in. I’m a pretty modest person, but I have a few shirts in my closet that I would pull out for such a night as this. It is fun for my husband to see me in clothes that I wear just for him.
Stay Relaxed and Flexible
The most important thing to remember is to have fun. Be relaxed and stay flexible with your night. If you have a plan, be ready to deviate when necessary. I’ve had times where I planned out a night for my husband and I, but we ended up doing things that weren’t planned.
Sometimes, all you have to do is show up in a hot outfit and be available. Whatever you decide to do with your loved for Christmas, remember it is supposed to be fun. If you hit a place where you are stressed out about everything going according to plan, take a step back. Just show up and be available.
These are just a few ideas that can get you started on coming up with a romantic night. You don’t have to wait until Christmas to put together a special night. Anytime would be well received.
