The Best Gift for Your Holiday Honey

Holi-DateBob Hollander, JD, LCSW-C and Lori Hollander, LCSW-C, BCD, Guest Authors

Are you wondering, what is the best gift for your honey this holiday season?

Relationships and marriages become stressed around the holidays. Too much to do and not enough time. What tends to fall to the bottom of our lists is making time to connect with our partners.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With just a little thoughtfulness, your relationship can flourish during the holidays. Several years ago Bob and I wrote about what we call “Holi-Dates.”

Holi-Date – A short, sweet date with your partner in December designed to revitalize you, your mate and your connection.

We believe Holi-Dates are the best gift for your “holiday honey.” Finding pockets of time or longer to share with each other can reduce stress, deepen your feelings of connection and turn the to-do list into something fun.

Our “Holi-Date” video will explain further. We hope it inspires you to do more connecting with your honey this season!

Some of our past favorite Holi-Dates:

• Day trip to NYC – the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, skating at Rockefeller Center and FAO Schwartz toy store
• Ice skating and hot chocolate
• Symphony of Lights in Columbia
• The Chanukah House in Baltimore
• Hampden’s Miracle on 34th Street and cherry pie at Café Hon
• Barnes & Nobles – gift buying, and dessert and coffee at Starbucks
• Watching old Christmas movies at home
