6 Cute Ways To Celebrate Christmas When You’re In An LDR
The beginning of December is basically the start of all things festive and every year, this gets us all excited. Christmas present shopping, spending time with loved ones, putting up lights on the Christmas tree with bae while sipping on some hot chocolate, it truly is the season to be jolly. When you’re in a long distance relationship, doing these, together at least, can be a bit of a struggle. But, here are a few ways you can make up for that lost midnight kiss and Christmas cuddles. We’ll tell you how.
Fix a Skype date
This may be the most clichéd yet the most effective way to overcome the cuddle-drought during the holidays. Set a date, time and the mood with some wine and candles, and dine together over Skype, trying to recreate what it would be like had you been together.
Send surprise gifts through the mail
Make use of the element of surprise and send in Christmas gifts for your SO well in advance through mail. There is nothing like the happiness that comes with unwrapping a gift from your loved one, and finding out how they remembered getting you that wallet they told you about.
While you can’t share the same room, trying sharing a Christmas uniform! Get yourself matching PJs to to make the moment really special.
Try settling in for a movie night. Pick a romantic or a comedy movie, play it at the same time and enjoy watching it together. Throw in some popcorn and occasional texts discussing moments from the movie for a complete experience.
December holidays are officially dessert season. Indulge in some sweet tooth seduction by trying to bake a cake together. Get on Skype, pick up the same recipe and try to add some sweetness to your day. Later, you can discuss who baked it better.
Make joint New-year’s resolutions
FaceTime each other at 12 am to welcome the new year and perhaps confide in each other some resolutions for the year. You can work on making it happen together as a couple.
