Holiday Love : It’s The Little Things

By Celli Arenas

It’s not the gift, it’s the thought that counts. There is no greater present than your presence. Show your appreciation in the smallest gestures, they count! The effort that you show makes things between you two, even better. These little things make a huge difference, and a happy partner.


1. Aromas
Aromatics are a nice touch for those who love luscious scents. Florals, citrus, patchouli, eucalyptus, lavender, you name it. Warm the holiday by creating the mood with the scents of the season. I am a candle addict! Oooh, they smell so good!

Great Holiday Gift Idea

Blue-Sage Boutique has some incredible Eco-friendly clean burning soy wax candles that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. I love ALL of the scents. So hard to only choose one! Check their site here.


2. Tea for Two
“This ancient beverage is treasured by people around the world for its delicious flavor and vital health benefits.” Keep your honey happy and healthy. Morning, noon, or night Chai helps relax the muscles and mind. The spices tickle the tongue and warms the spirit. Learn more about the benefits of Chai here.


3. Beach Therapy
Living in South Florida has many lovely benefits. Beach weather is year round! Where else will you find 80 degree weather in the middle of December? Take your beauty to the beach for an evening stroll after a delicious beach side dinner. The salt water of the ocean emits great wafts oxygen; fresh air filling your lungs is so refreshing. Walking on the sand not only provides great exfoliation for your tootsies, it also feels amazing. You have thousands of nerve endings in your feet. Think of it as earth’s way of giving you and your baby some “sweet feet“. Nice.


4. Visual Aides
Full moon, glorious sunrise, fresh flowers in a beautiful vase, satin and lace lingerie…need I say more? What we see engages our mind. The mind is where love first occurs. A lovely sight to see. Give your partner a beautifully wrapped present.


5. Food, Glorious Food
The way to a man’s heart is through his belly. This is true for women too! Get in the kitchen and stir up some holiday treats. Savory dishes, sweet holiday chocolate and caramel concoctions will get you in the mood for love. Preheat your oven and make some memories this holiday season.


6. Let The Music Play
The sounds of Christmas bring memories of joy. You know that warmth you feel when you hear, “This Christmas”, or “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus“. Decorate your home and fill it with the sounds of music too. Trim the tree with your love and create new traditions. Shared experiences are a great way to bond. Make it fun and let your hearts be full.

7. The Kiss
Usher wrote a song about it, and so did Prince. Besos are an intimate gift that creates a warmth that is unmeasured. Wether it is under the mistletoe or between the sheets, spend a little time smooching with someone who tastes so sweet.
