There’s a blogger whose husband’s birthday is something like December 14th. So she decided to bless her hubby with twelve days of Christmas beginning on his birthday and going to Christmas. This works really well for her situation and I totally understand why she does this.
However, my hubby’s birthday is in October. Also the Twelve Days of Christmas refers to the twelve days from Christmas to January 6th, which is Epiphany when the Magi finding baby Jesus is celebrated. Because of this and the fact that the days leading to Christmas are so busy, I choose bless my man for those twelve days.
Now I don’t do this every year, so don’t go thinking I’m some kind of wonder woman or something. And this year, I’m thinking of suggesting that the hubs and I take turns, so it would be every other day. Of course, I could just do a combination of all the one’s I’ve found and really mix up what I do for him.
So during these twelve days, which would only be six days if we rotate, I do something nice, special, or “spicy”, if you get my drift, with or for him. From previous years, I have found that he prefers a foot massage over any other massage, so I’ll be sure to include one of those. Some new intimate apparel is another great idea for a day. His favorite dessert and me taking out the trash for him one day are two more I can think of right now.
There are several twelve days of Christmas lists that can give you some ideas. I went to find a couple and was literally looking for a half hour and finally just had to call it quits. There are so many ideas floating around that you can surely find something that appeals to you.
- Here’s one that is for a man who’s love language is acts of service.
- This one has a free printable to include with a small gift.
- Here’s a spicy one; be sure to read how it came about, it’s so sweet.
- On this one, she shows you the tags she made to accompany frugal gifts.
- Pinterest has LOTS of ideas!
I hope you’ll take some time and plan a little something special for your love for this wonderful holiday season.
Until next time, God bless,
