3 Tips to Boost Your Relationship this Christmas

AD- This is a sponsored post. All opinions and thoughts are my own.

I’ve been separated from my boyfriend since the start of the pandemic- and since then I’ve really come to think about relationships, love, and everything that comes along with this unusual festive season.

I know my relationship is not the only one to be affected by the pandemic- and whether you’re married, single, or you’re currently dating- Christmas always feels like there’s a lot of pressure to find the “perfect” relationship. But I think that Christmas is a great time to appreciate your relationship status, whatever it may be!

Check out 3 tips to make the most of your relationship this festive season.

Find Ways to Date

During the pandemic, this is certainly easier said than done! But with more places opening in the next few weeks, even if you’re in tier 2 and 3 there are some fun, festive ways to date.

You could go and see the Christmas lights in your local area, or go for a crisp, festive walk. For me, there’s something so cosy about pulling all your layers on and enjoying a walk with your loved one.

If you want a slightly warmer idea, you can also enjoy a takeaway mulled wine or pumpkin-spiced latte from your favourite cafรฉ.

If you’re struggling to meet someone new, there lots of brilliant ways to meet people online, such as access to free dating sites Derbyshire and dating agency Derbyshire who help support people in their relationship journeys and meet like-minded singles.

Send a Care Package

Care packages are such lovely ways to show your partner how much you love them, and I love receiving surprise presents!

And with the festive season coming up, it’s even nicer to know your partner is looking out for you, even from afar. So if you’re in a long-distance relationship, send your partner a cute care package full of their favourite foods, or pop a card in the post to brighten up their day during these tough times.

Focus on Yourself

If you’re wanting to start a new relationship, or even if you’re looking to boost your current one, a great way to look out for your relationship is to focus on yourself.

This advice is always given to those who are single- but I think it applies whatever your relationship status! Working and focusing on yourself can never be a bad thing.

This could mean going to the gym, or even focusing on a hobby. Concentrating on yourself is a great way to understand what you need, not just in life but also from your partner.

I’ve tried to incorporate a multitude of relationship status’ here as I know that everyone’s experiences of relationships, love, and the pandemic will be slightly different! Some people are dating, and some people are perfectly happy being single.

  1. Really lovely ideas – so many people would find that a lockdown would either make or break their relationships. This is our first full year of marriage but I think with me working its been easy enough to separate ourselves day to day but couldn’t imagine not seeing her in person for weeks at a time! Lovely that you’ve been able to keep yours going but also offer some good advice too ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Great tips! My husband and I started out as a long distance relationship, care packages would have been lovely. Now that we live together in the same country we need to remind ourselves to go out on more dates! Weโ€™ve turned into homebodies ๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. These are some fab ideas. Luckily I’ve been able to see my boyfriend throughout most of the year and we moved in together for this lockdown but I know how difficult it’s been for quite a lot of people I know. Thank you for sharing.

  4. I love the idea of care packages. When we’re really busy at work my boyfriend and I send each other ‘hanger kits’ because we know it’s not always possible to go out and buy food.

  5. I leave little notes for my husband to find that are funny/romantic just to show him how much I love him. He’s had a really hard 2020 and he needs a boost (especially as we don’t go out because of Covid-19). I love the idea of a care package which I can do for him too — fab post!

  6. Not in a relationship but I found these tips really useful because of a lot of long distance friendships I’m in because I finished uni this year and we’ve gone our separate ways. Thanks for this post, it was lovely x

  7. Great post! I think my relationship status is now โ€œmarried and looking to dateโ€ ๐Ÿ˜… Dating during lockdown definitely died down after the first few months of always being together!
