Gift of Travel for Couples this Christmas

Make gift giving simple this year. Give the gift of travel to each other this Christmas.

Each year my husband and I give each other the gift of a couple’s vacation for Christmas.

It is always exciting and fun to decide where to go that year. The anticipation and planning together then experiencing it together give our relationship a boost and sizzle that we all occasionally need.

A couple’s trip can be as simple as an overnight in the area you live in or as expansive as a luxury vacation to another country.

How to give the gift of travel:

  1. Decide together that you will give the gift of travel to each other.
  2. Decide if that will be the only gift or if you will also give another or other gifts.
  3. Decide on a budget for the trip.
  4. Decide where you want to travel or time when you can travel.
  5. Purchase the trip or look for a bargain or deal on the place you have chosen or somewhere that has a bargain or deal during the time you have chosen.
  6. Wrap and put the tickets under the tree or wrap a gift certificate to yourselves.
  7. Plan together the details of the trip.
  8. Have a blast together.

Reconnect with your spouse through couple travel. It will help to spark romance and interest in each other in a way you have not considered before.

As you travel together you will see and experience new things together and learn more about each other than you ever thought you could.

Food and Snacks For Airplane

Apple Clip Art

Panic – the ridiculous fear that you might starve to death on a 3 hour plane ride, just because the airline won’t feed you on a flight. You have the feeling that you will be starving and you want to take food and snacks for airplane with you. You can buy food in the airport after you pass through security and then take it on the plane. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time or money buying food in the airport you can take food and treats that should make it through the TSA airport screening. No liquids allowed; soda, canned shakes, canned tuna, etc over 3.4 ounces.

Here is a list of food and snacks for airplane. One caution to note is that dairy products and meat products can’t be taken into or out of most countries. As regulations change check the TSA for any questions you have, http:www.tsa.gov.

Couple Beach Travel Activity: Sand Castle Sculpturing

A great sometimes overlooked Couple Beach Travel activity is making sand castles together. It can make you feel like a kid again, that is the point. Working together and laughing increases the connection between couples. An activity that makes you laugh, get dirty and get out of your normal element makes for a perfect couple date. Don’t let marriage become boring. Doing something out on the beach as a couple can be a good place to return to those warm fuzzy feelings that make you want to hold hand, smile at each other and maybe even make-out like teenagers.

Here are some great videos from youtube that shows how to make a sand castle and how to do sand sculpturing. Did you know there was a science behind making sand castles? Watch these videos together and then take a trip to the beach for a summer fun in the sun couple date.
