By Rebecca White

Ho, ho, ho! When you sit by the Christmas tree today admiring all of the presents around it, you don’t want to be embarrassed about what you got your loved ones. In order to end this year on a high note, try to make your partner something special. For this weekend date idea, you’ll get bonus points if you two craft some presents together! This date night will give you a chance to focus on your relationship while ringing in the holidays.

Craft your own Christmas presents with this week’s weekend date idea.

To get started with this date idea, you’ll need to get in touch with your crafty side. You can make each other a scrapbook of memories, noting your first kiss, your first date, and other important moments. If you want to keep it simple, you can just write a secret love note for your significant other to find on Christmas morning. No matter what, your gift will mean more if it comes from the heart. This dating advice will surely make the holiday even more romantic!

You can even take a cue from celebrity couples like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and make each other a selfie book. While these selfie books may not hit the bestsellers list, reminiscing and taking some photos together may be just what you need to feel connected.

If you want to feel like a kid again, put on a Santa hat and dance to Christmas music on this weekend date idea. You can even make each other a “couple’s first Christmas” ornament and put it on the tree that morning. Or if you aren’t crafty or don’t want to make something yourself, go shopping together and give each other a list of items under 20 dollars that you want. Either way, you don’t need to spend tons of money this holiday.

After opening your presents, keep the gift giving spirit going and plan a surprise breakfast picnic for your honey. Pack some holiday favorites, like eggnog French toast, gingerbread, peppermint tea, and candy canes. It’s important to get some alone time together before heading off to see your families. Enjoy a calm moment by sharing some delicious food and chatting about what you are most excited for when the New Year hits.
