Christmas doesn’t have to be all about the kids! Strengthen your relationship by following these holiday traditions just for couples!
Holiday season is in full swing now and if you haven’t set any traditions with your significant other — then this is your year to start! I’ve narrowed down 10 holiday traditions for couples that are fun, help give back to the community and help strengthen your relationship too.
Make Some Hot Chocolate & Look At Christmas Lights
This is a tradition that can definitely carry on over once you have kiddos. Pack up some hot chocolate in a thermos, crank on the Christmas music and drive around the best neighborhoods looking at lights.
Bake Some Cookies Together
And decorate them too!
Have A Special Christmas Morning Breakfast
Pick out a special dish or maybe a casserole that you reserve for special occasions and make on Christmas morning.
Adopt a family, a child or a grandparent and buy them things together. Or make sandwiches and deliver them to a local shelter. Anything to help your local community.

Hi there! I’m Lily, the girl behind Beauty With Lily. I am a real estate agent, nurse, wife, crazy dog mom — to our cute little pup, Charlie — blogger, beauty enthusiast, makeup connoisseur, and your everyday twenty-something southern gal. You'll usually catch me with an iced coffee in tow, an arm full of makeup swatches or behind my computer working (or shopping!) I hope this little space helps you feel beautiful, find your next clothing piece to buy or a place you come to after a long day. I hope you stay awhile. xo - Lily
