The start of the holidays is the busiest time of the year for me. Our house is the gathering place for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, and since my husband and I live 6 hours away from his family we have a lot of company throughout this time of year. In addition, I have our girls to entertain and take care of, a house to manage, a business to run and so much more! With that said, often times I get so wrapped up in the holiday craziness that I forget about taking time to spend with my husband. My husband and I have been married for around 18 years and the success of a strong marriage is not only communication but keeping the romance alive. This year I decided to do something special for my husband and celebrate 12 Days of Romance with him. I know he will love it and it will also remind me to appreciate our love during the busiest time of year.

Celebrate 12 Days of Romance

The holidays can be overwhelming and can sadly add unnecessary stress to most households. In my home, I am the primary baker, planner, and shopper so I am often times running around and not giving the man in my life the attention that he deserves. When I decided to switch things up a little and celebrate 12 Days of Romance with my husband I immediately snuck off to Walmart to grab some supplies. I wanted to grab some of his favorite treats, chocolates, and a few surprises. There is a funny story behind one of the surprises he was going to get. Every time we are at Walmart my husband always sneaks K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants® into the cart, I giggle and put it back. You would think that after 18 years of marriage nothing would embarrass me when I am around my husband but for whatever reason it does. On this day I had a $2 off one K-Y® product, so I decided that I’d use it for my 12 Days of Romance. I wanted to really surprise my husband so I went to the Health & Wellness aisle and grabbed a box of K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants®. When it comes to keeping the romance alive there is nothing to be embarrassed about and you can only build a relationship by trying new things, right?

Celebrating 12 Days of Romance for your loved one is fun and easy. Each day for 12 days I surprise my husband with a special gift, romantic note or fun adventure. I like to give him his daily gift or note at different times of the day, and sometimes I put them in different areas of the house, in his car, or even in his lunch bag. Here are some romantic gift ideas that you can use while you celebrate 12 Days of Romance with the one you love:

  • Bubble Bath or Body Wash- Light some candles, turn on some music, and pour some bubbles in some warm bath water.
  • Chocolate- Surprise him with his favorite chocolate.
  • Love Note- Write him a sweet love note.
  • Mixed Drink Night- Choose a mixed drink that neither of you have tried and have fun!
  • Massage- You can either give him a personal massage or make him an appointment for one. Either way, most men love to get a massage.
  • Date Night- Pretend it’s your first date, knock on the door as if you don’t live together, and get reacquainted.
  • Movie Night & Chill- Pick out a romantic comedy, get comfortable and just relax.
  • Flowers- Guys like flowers too! Have flowers sent to him at work with a romantic message.
  • Favorite Meal- Surprise him with a romantic meal.
  • Unplug & Snuggle- Turn off all the electronics and snuggle.
  • Try Something New- Create a romantic night with K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants®. My husband had always wanted for us to try this product so I thought I would add it to the 12 Days of Romance. K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants® inspires couples to grow intimately together for a better emotional connection. It is the perfect gift for celebrating 12 Days of Romance.

How do you remember to take time to include romance in your life during the crazy busy holiday season?


  1. These are some wonderful ideas to keep the date night with loads of fun. My husband is such a romance filled guy & he would love one such 12 days of romance concept so much. A perfect way to spend the holidays with your partner.

  2. 12 days of romance sounds like a great way to get through the holiday stress!

  3. Great romantic ideas. I am as single as they come, but I will keep these in mind

  4. My husband and I are trying to reestablish our romantic side. Things have been going well I like your list to re-up (and KY is already a part of it).

  5. Writing love notes to your spouse is a great way to express yourself. Best of all, they are great memories.

  6. It’s so important to make sure you stay connected to your partner during the holiday season. We love KY products

  7. I’ve tried this before, it’s a great product. KY has always been a really great brand. Wonderful ideas you’ve got!

  8. It’s so easy to get caught up in all of the holiday craziness and forget about what really matters to us — family. It’s great that you’ve planned some ideas in advance to keep the romance going! #client

  9. I love this list! You don’t have to spend much to have a date night with your hubby. These are all great ideas.

  10. 12 days of romance is such a great idea for whether you are newly in love or have been married for years. It is great that their are products out there to make it a little easier to celebrate romance.

  11. This is a great idea! Oh la la!

  12. What a lovely idea – I might have to try and talk my other half into this, would be a lovely thing to do. x

  13. I love the idea of 12 days of romance! After being married for 34 years, it’s good to spice it up a little!

  14. I love your ways of keeping the relationship romantic. The classics like chocolate, drinks and music are always fun.

  15. These are great ideas. Romance should always be a part of the marriage. It helps keep that bond alive and well.

  16. I like the movie night and chill idea. Surprising him with his favorite meal wouldn’t be too romantic since his favorite meal is meatloaf, lol.
