Private Celebration

December 4, 2012

in the generous life

A fun gift idea for your husband is a “bedroom Christmas stocking.”  

Buy a number of gift items, to be opened in private, that will bless him, but that are still within your comfort level (it’s OK to stretch a little bit).

Ideas: Love notes, lingerie, massage oil, flavored items, a small scented candle, a game for two, a book about sexuality, sexual gift coupons.

I LOVE this idea! You could transfer it to anniversaries or birthdays, too, just omit the stocking.

I tried. They’ve just sat in the bottom of a junk drawer covered in dust and junk for nearly 5 years now.

@living I do understand. For many years I was the one that tucked items in a drawer to collect dust. Keep loving on your man and praying for him and reach out in whatever way he will receive (and let that be the heart of gratefulness for you, love what you have and don’t let bitterness get you over what you don’t have).

We’re all on a journey and some of us are just slower than others, some of us carry wounds, some of us speak a different love language, etc. It is difficult and hurtful sometimes, but love, forgiveness and grace can make it easier on you both.

I like this idea a lot. I think my husband will enjoy it too.

What a fantastic idea! I love this… and I’m definitely going to have to try it out.
