Add Christmas Traditions from Your Travel

Add variety to your traditions by picking up some from the places that you travel and incorporate them into your family traditions.

One of  the traditions we  added to our Christmas traditions we got from Holland.

Father Christmas visits the Children in Holland and leaves them treats and gifts. On Christmas Eve as part of our  Christmas program we put one of our shoes out on the front step. Children in Holland would put out wooden shoes.  At the end of our Christmas program we go outside and like magic Father Christmas has filled our shoes with treats and a small gift. Our children even though they are married have never figured out how that happened as we never left the room. So surely St. Nicolas from Holland is real.

Adding tradition to your family is fun. Remember only to add the traditions that you want to carry on with forever.

Traveling as a couple can be simple or extravagant but either way you can enjoy time alone to focus on each other. Leave work and worry behind and pretend that the only people that matter for your vacation time is you and the one you love.

There are a number of different types of travel here are some couple vacation ideas:

“Stay Vacation” – A stay vacation is when you stay in the area that you live or in a town that is within economical driving distance. Stay in a hotel one to two nights. Activities could include a going to a  play, concert, the movies, skiing, rock climbing, going for a balloon ride, fishing, going to an amusement park, participating in beach activities, snorkeling, dining or shopping.

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.
