Brad and Kate say…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With the kids jingle belling, and everything reminding you that you still haven’t found the right gift for your loved one. For some reason Christmas shopping for your husband, or finding that perfect gift for your wife is always one of the biggest challenges of the year.
We at One Flesh Marriage want to make your Christmas a little bit more the “hap-happiest season of all” and a little less pulling your hair out!
We bring you the annual One Flesh Marriage Christmas Gift Guide. In years past we’ve published the Christmas Gift Guide to Knock Your Hubby’s Socks Off and The Christmas Gift Guide To Wow your Wife.
This year we have decided to focus more on marriage Christmas gifts. Gifts that might be for both of you together. Gifts that could grow you as a couple, and make sure that there is plenty of time for “mistltoeing and hearts a glowing”
Time Together Gift Ideas
Finding time together is always a challenge, but it is essential for any couple to carve out that special one on one time. One of the ways that Kate and I do that is by having Date Nights In. We feed the kids something they love, then we either send them to bed, or banish them to another room with a movie and spend time cooking and eating together. This has been a great inexpensive way for us to find time together.
In order to encourage you to try your own Date Nights In. We thought we would share some ideas that could kick things off for you.
Need ideas to get you cooking? In Date Night In: More than 120 Recipes to Nourish Your Relationship you’ll find recipes to make together. Spend time cooking then enjoy your results together!
Don’t have time to cook? One of our favorite Date Nights In has been visiting our local cheese shop. It quickly can be a simple meal that you can enjoy trying together. This Picnic Cheese Board Set has everything you need to put out a great spread!
Dreaming of those days when you’ll be able to do more together? Wish you could pick up and see the world hand in hand? Don’t just dream, start planning with this great wall map. As you visit different states or countries you can scratch them off on this great Scratch Map World Travel Map. Not traveling? Use this as a marriage bucket list of where you want to go once you can!
Last but not least in our time together category of gift ideas is the very popular Cell Phone Lock-Up. We’ve recommended this in years past, but with the ever growing distraction of cell phones, more and more couples are recognizing the need to fight back and lock up those phones to have any couple or family time. This might be just the perfect gift for your cell loving family!
Give the Gift of I Love You
Many gifts say, “I love you” the day you give them. Those are great, but what about finding a gift that will help you share words of love all year round?
The Our Q&A a Day: 3-Year Journal for 2 People provides a question for every day of the year, with enough space for two people to jot down a one or two sentence response. It could be a quick and easy way for each of you to share your appreciation, love and encouragement every day of the year!
You can do the same thing with these great Washable Window Markers. Yes they were made for kids to write on the window, but with just a little creativity you can write a love note on your bathroom mirror or a special picture frame in your bedroom.
Did your hubby write you love poems when you were dating? Maybe you can help him find his missing muse with the Love Magnetic Poetry Kit – Essential Words For Any Lover . Want to spice it up a little? Add the Sexual Innuendo Magnetic Poetry Kit and see what happens.
Christmas Gift ideas for the Bedroom
We would be amiss to leave out gift ideas that might spice things up a little. There are many things you can do, that won’t even require an embarrassing shopping trip.
Several years ago we revealed the secret that Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil makes a fantastic addition to any bedroom. It is the perfect all natural lubricant, much better than any of that synthetic stuff. Wrap up a jar for your loved one this Christmas! Oh, and don’t forget to get a great Mini Colorful Wood Scoop too. Since coconut oil is solid at room temp the scoop will help you get it out of the jar, don’t worry it will become nice warm oil with your body heat.
The Lets Cuddle Pillow Cases His and Hers Pillowcases are a great way to decorate up your room and give a, not so subtle, love message too. If Christmas isn’t the right time for this one, the day before the next 10 Day Challenge might be perfect! (Don’t worry it’s coming soon)
Ready to jump outside of the box? I’m not going to draw you a picture but the Moonrest Luxury Bed Wedge Pillow might be advertised on Amazon for “medical” reasons, but many people find creative fun uses for the same product. I’ll let your imagination wonder…
Gifts to Celebrate our Savior
This Armor of God Pendant and Knight Figurine is a great way to remind your spouse that God is with you. These verses in Ephesians 6:10-18 are some of my favorites, and I don’t think it is any accident that they come directly after the marriage verses in Ephesians 5. We need to remember the power of God’s armor!
I wrote in my post, I Can’t Love You Right, how many people misunderstand 1 Corinthians 13. Even so it is still a beautiful reminder of how much we need God in our marriage. This Love Never Fails Wall Cross would make a beautiful addition to any special space in your home.
Union 28 has amazing gift ideas including this great “Love Is” tee-shirt here. Check them out today!
I hope that this gives you some great Christmas ideas! If you have other amazing ideas, we would love to hear them! Let us know in the comments!
We both hope that you have a great time celebrating Christmas with your love!
