25 Days of Loving My Spouse in December

Last year I was inspired by a 25 Day Advent Challenge that I thought we should give it a try in our home. We’re counting down the days until Christmas in a more meaningful way each year. Try my 25 days of loving my spouse in December with an Advent Wreath!

If you need ideas of how to get started, think about the following phrases:

  • I love you because….
  • I’m thankful for you because….
  • I’m so glad you….
  • You are so….

Here are also other advent wreath calendar ideas!


You can do this with the whole family, not just your spouse. Each person can take a different color notepad!

Think back to the year you’ve shared with your loved ones and come up with unique messages.

UPDATE: This year we created a gratitude jar and left it out on the counter all year long. It made it easy to throw in a note from time to time so that when December rolls around, 25 love notes were already written!

Do you and your spouse have a special holiday tradition for each other? I would love to hear in the comments below!

  1. Marriage is work. Midlife marriage can be hard work. Darling Husband and I love each other but after decades need things to remind us of the magic that’s still there. What a wonderful idea.

  2. Love this. After 24 years of marriage, my husband and I need reminders like this. It’s not that we don’t remember…not really. But we get so caught up in the day-to-day that we choose to just put it aside. Love this challenge. Thanks!
