12 days of Christmas gift ideas
On the first day of Christmas-A patridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas-two turtle doves
Get creative and write love letters to each other, sealed with a kiss and delivered romantically. Text messages have become so common in relationships, so take it back to the romantic roots of love letters. Small gifts like these show how much thought and effort you put into the present.

On the third day of Christmas-three french hens
Talk about a romantic date night planned at home. A great idea to convince your partner to get into the holiday spirit is by getting them matching holiday-themed pajamas or onesies. Then, you can spend a cozy night at home cuddled up, watching your favorite movies, and wearing your matching attire while drinking some warm hot chocolate and marshmallows.
On the fourth day of Christmas-four calling birds
Surprise your partner with concert tickets to see their favorite artist or attend a speakeasy, especially if they have talked about going for a long time. Incorporating an element of surprise shows that you value their interests and want to make them happy during the Christmas season.
On the fifth day of Christmas-five golden rings
Jewelry can always be a romantic gift, but why not go for something unique, like buying inexpensive Christmas-themed ring pops and romantically presenting them? The thought counts, and this gift will show your playful side and love for your partner.
End the night by viewing Christmas lights in a drive-through experience with light Christmas music in the background.
On the sixth day of Christmas-six geese a laying
On a major love note, take a romantic vacation together, whether it’s a weekend getaway or an extended trip somewhere new. It’s a great way to spend quality time with each other and create new memories. While away, make it a point to try new things together and indulge in romantic ways you usually wouldn’t at home.
On the seventh day of Christmas-seven swans a swimming
Water play, much? Plan a romantic evening at a nearby indoor or outdoor pool and spend the night swimming and relaxing together. Don’t forget to pack some romantic snacks and drinks once out of the water for you two to enjoy together. If where you live is too cold, consider booking a hotel room with a hot tub to soak in.
On the eigth day of Christmas-eight maids a milking
As the big day slowly approaches, you’re both craving ways to decompress through the holiday chaos. So treat your partner to a romantic spa day where you can both relax and unwind. Your version of softening could include massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, or any other pampering treatments you enjoy.
On the ninth day of Christmas-nine ladies dancing
A simple Christmas date idea is to plan a romantic and fancy date night where you dress up for a nice dinner followed by dancing at a romantic venue. It’s a classic romantic gesture that never fails to impress during the most wonderful time of the year.
On the tenth day of Christmas-ten lords a leaping
A fun way to hint to your partner that this season is more than just getting into the Christmas spirit is by placing special meaning to “holiday festivities.” For example, if your partner has always wanted to try skydiving or bungee jumping, consider surprising them with an adrenaline-filled adventure they will never forget.
It shows that you are willing to step outside your comfort zone for them and make their dreams come true. With a little extra planning, your partner will be pleasantly surprised and think of this romantic gift for years to come.
On the eleventh day of Christmas-eleven pipers piping
Surprise your partner with tickets to see their favorite play or musical, especially if it’s something they have talked about wanting to see for a long time. It’s romantic and shows that you pay attention to their interests and desires.
The morning of the surprise outing, spend the earlier part of the day putting up the finishing touches to your Christmas decorations so that your partner doesn’t see it coming.
On the twelfth day of Christmas-twelve drummers drumming
End your romantic 12 Days of Christmas with a bang by planning a romantic scavenger hunt leading to the grand finale gift like a Christmas tree farm. If one of their favorite things is picking out a Christmas tree, plan a romantic trip to do this together.
Putting in the considerable effort will show just how much thought you put into making your partner feel loved and appreciated during the holiday season.
Creating your favorite Christmas traditions together
Make this holiday season memorable by showing love through romantic gestures and shared moments. This will make the holiday season special and romantic for both of you.
Create a special meaning for a particular decoration or food tradition. For example, decorate the tree with ornaments that hold special memories for both of you, or make it a point to bake and eat a specific dessert every Christmas eve or on Christmas day as a reminder of your love and shared experiences.
These moments will create lasting memories for years to come. Happy holidays and Merry Christmas!
