When the holiday season rolls around, it’s easy to lose track of your personal life. Between the parties, the end-of-year deadlines, and the expectations from your office and family alike, you may feel like you have little time to connect with your partner. (And hey, that’s normal.) When you are shopping for your one-and-only, you may be tempted to go the traditional route of jewelry, fragrance, or another accessory. However, what’s even better is an experience gift as a way to recover from the madness that is November and December.
“It can be helpful to carve out special time for the couple to spend by themselves outside the holiday hoopla,” says relationship coach Susan Trotter, Ph.D. “Be kind and compassionate with yourselves and with each other. Planning and having good communication is key to reducing the time pressure around the holidays.”
