"On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me....." I love that song! It's a classic!

With the busiest time of year nearly upon us, it's got me thinking. This year, I would really like to take time to enjoy the season, rather than rushing around from place to place ticking off the boxes on my long list of to-do's.

Keeping in theme with this classic song, I've come up with a fun way to celebrate the holiday season with my husband, with 12 days of love. I put together 12 fun gift bags. One for each of the 12 days leading up to the holiday. Basically they are starter ideas for at-home date nights. With 3 kids, we rarely have the time to leave the house alone, so this is a fun way to spend time together during the otherwise busy and hectic holiday season.

Check out my simple tutorial below on how you can put together 12 gifts of love for your spouse this season too!

These are some of the gifts that I packed into the pictured gift bags for my husband this holiday season.

12 days of love gifts / at-home date night starter ideas:

  • Have a movie night in: pop a new DVD + a bag of microwave popcorn into one of your gift bags and enjoy some time cuddling on the sofa while you watch the movie together.
  • Bring the coffee house to your kitchen: No time to head out alone? Bring the coffee house to your kitchen! Add a bag of his favorite coffee and 2 new coffee cups to a bag. Enjoy a cup of coffee and chat after the kids go to sleep.
  • Bake together! ‘Tis the season! The holidays are synonymous with baking. Put the dry ingredients for your favorite cookies into a gift bag along with a few new cookie cutters. Spend some time in the kitchen baking together. When you're cookies are done baking, enjoy them with a cup of hot cocoa and some good conversation.
  • Enjoy a glass of wine, and a sweet treat together - put a bottle of wine and his favorite chocolates in one of your gift bags.
  • Give your spouse a relaxing massage - the holidays can be stressful! Light a candle and give your spouse a relaxing massage with K-Y® TOUCH®. It warms as you massage - and is the perfect way to relax and reconnect with each other during the busy holiday season {and chilly winter months}.
  • Take a hike together. Put a blanket and a thermos along with a few packets of hot chocolate in one of your gift bags. Then take a hike together. Stop somewhere along the way and snuggle under the blanket with a nice cup of hot cocoa.
