1st Christmas Together As A Married Couple

Congratulations 2013 newlyweds!

Christmas is a special time of the year, but this holiday season will be a significant one because it will be your first Christmas as a married couple.                                          
Here are five top ideas from Savoy the Socialite to make your first Christmas as a married couple special and memorable.

Service Opportunities
Make your first Christmas together as a married couple memorable by spending the holiday helping others. You can volunteer at a local food drive or soup kitchen, organize a toy or clothing drive for a local charity or sign up to make your first appearance as Mr. and Mrs. Claus during the Christmas season at a local children’s hospital.

Personalize the Holiday
Make memories together on which you can build for years to come. You can handcraft ornaments to hang on your tree or have photo ornaments made instead -- and then add to your collection of personalized ornaments every year. You can also try baking some holiday treats together -- perhaps some that you both enjoyed as children, or, if you aren’t fans of old-fashioned traditions, make this Christmas one-of-a-kind with a brand new Christmas dinner.

Start Your Own Traditions
A marriage is the conceiving of a new family with the continuation of old traditions and the making of new ones. Since you are a new family (that will likely grow in size in the years to come), create traditions that are your own.

Gift for life

To make sure your first Christmas as a married couple is extra special buy each other gifts that will last a you might buy one another a trip in the place you got engaged. Other great gifts that last a lifetime include beautiful storage chests filled with sentimental items, a piece of artwork you both love or a tree you can plant together.

Reflect and Plan
Spend some time looking back on your life together since the wedding. What has the transition to married life been like? With Christmas being so close to the start of the New Year, make some resolutions for your relationship. Commit to read a marriage book together, attend a marriage conference. Do something in the upcoming year to invest in the health and quality of your relationship.

 Have a Very Merry Married Christmas!
