1. Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt

I love this idea from Retro Housewife Goes Green! It’s fun to drive around and look at Christmas lights and this makes it into a fun scavenger hunt! There is also a free printable to go along with it!

2. Collect (or make!) Christmas Ornaments

Saving Talents has a great idea to get a Christmas ornament whenever you go somewhere new. Each Christmas when you decorate, you’ll get to remember and relive those memories!

3. Watch a Christmas Movie

My last Blogmas post was on cozy couple movies. Pick a movie that you both enjoy and watch it every year. For my fiance and I, it’s National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!

4. Create an Advent Calendar

I’ve seen lots of cool ideas on Pinterest (follow me to see some!) for homemade advent calendars. You and your partner could try a new beer or wine everyday. You could find a Christmas joke every day. There’s so many possibilities!

5. Write a Christmas Love Letter

Find some beautiful paper, and write each other a love note to be opened on Christmas or Christmas eve!

6. Volunteer

The holidays are a great time to help others while also spending time with your loved one! You could donate time or money.
