By Samantha Mucha and Bonnie Griffin

The holiday season can be a stressful time with your partner, even though it should be full of joy and holiday cheer. To lessen your to-do list this December, and still have time for a date night, try this date idea for something different with your sweetheart. Break out the wrapping paper, ribbons, and tape. It’s time to channel your inner Christmas Elf.

Date Idea: Turn wrapping gifts into a magical date night!

There’s no doubt that wrapping gifts is a difficult task. It’s an endeavor that should be left for the most skilled and nimble-fingered family members. Yet, nothing says “I support you, babe!” quite like helping out. Have your lover join you.

It may sound like you are just recruiting your man to do your chores while you sit back and relax, but that is not the case at all. It becomes less of a task and more of a constructive activity when you two do it together. Have your significant other bring over their unwrapped gifts (but not yours, you don’t want to ruin a good surprise) and the two of you can work together.

To make your Friday night even more entertaining turn gift-wrapping into a game.  Maybe your relationship could use a little competitive edge.  Try timing yourselves to see who can make the best-looking package in the quickest amount of time.  The winner has to bake cookies for the not-so-perfect wrapper.

Putting on some holiday music while sitting by a warm fire is a romantic conclusion to this date.  After your gifts are piled neatly under the tree, sit back and relax with your beau.  As the night of gift-wrapping fun comes to a close, catch a Christmas movie on TV and drift off to sleep cuddled up in each other’s arms.
