For Valentine’s Day this year, why not stray away from the typical “dinner and a movie” and come up with something more creative to do?  If you think outside the box, you and your date can have a memorable Valentine’s Day that’s just as fun and romantic. 🙂 If you’re not the most creative person in the world, here are some ideas for your day/night!

  • If you really want to get creative, create a scavenger hunt for your boyfriend with little gifts and treats at each spot.  You can make this as fun as you want! 
  • Instead of going out to eat, stay in and cook a dinner you both love!  Not only is it cheaper than going to an expensive restaurant, but it’s super fun to cook up a meal with your boyfriend/girlfriend. Chelsea Crockett - Hot Chocolate
  • Sometimes morning dates are even better than night dates!  Meet for coffee or brunch at your fave spot.
  • Picnics aren’t just for summer!  Bundle up and find the perfect spot to lay down a blanket and make a date out of it.  Bring lots of hot chocolate and blankets and maybe even your gifts to exchange if you decide to buy for each other, too.
  • Become a tourist of your own city for a day!  Whether you live near a big city or not, grab some money and a camera and go places you’ve never been before.

What are your plans this Valentine’s Day?  Let me know below if you use one of these unique date ideas!

XOXO – Chelsea

Around the holidays is the absolute best time for fun winter dates.  There are so many different things to do whether it be with your new crush, boyfriend, or even your BFF.  Most are pretty inexpensive too which is always a plus! Here are a few dates that are perfect for breaking you and your date into the Christmas spirit!

  • Since spending a lot of money to go out on an actually date isn’t always an option, spending a night at home can be just as fun!  Baking Christmas cookies and watching your fav Christmas movies isn’t too bad of an idea!Chelsea Crockett - Christmas Lights
  • Around my area, we have a ton of neighborhoods/houses that go all out for Christmas decorating.  Wait till it gets dark out, make some hot chocolate to-go, and go for a drive to look at all the lights and decorations!
  • I’ve heard this a bunch of times but haven’t actually tried it out myself!  People say volunteering with your boyfriend or girlfriend is a good way to not only help your community but to get to know them better as well.  Maybe go shopping for a toy drive or volunteer somewhere to spread some holiday cheer!
  • Search online for any Christmas festivals or celebrations going on around your area.  I know where I’m from we have different Christmas events going on all throughout December!
  • Buy tickets for a Christmas play or concert.  Instead of the typical movie theater date, switch it up and go to a holiday play!  You can even go on a nice dinner before, dress up, and enjoy your night together!

I hope you and your date have an awesome holiday season! 🙂

The Do’s & Don’ts of Gift Buying for Your Boyfriend

Especially around the holiday season, everyone wants that special person to spend Christmas time with!  If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend this year, then you’ll most likely be buying each other Christmas presents.  There are certain things to consider when picking out that perfect gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend to make sure this year is the best Christmas yet!

  • DO get him something meaningful.  Chelsea Crockett - Christmas PresentsPut some thought into it!  Boys like meaningful gifts too whether they admit it or not.
  • DON’T just give him money or a gift card.  Like I said, put some thought into it!  Although money and gift cards are nice, he’ll probably be getting some from relatives anyways. 
  • DO ask his friends and family for advice.  Nothing’s wrong with asking for a little help!  They might know about what he likes or what size he wears more than you do, so shoot them a text and ask!
  • DO ask each other for a budget.  I don’t mean you have to have an exact spending amount set, but at least try to get an idea of how much to spend.
  • DON’T overthink it.  Boys will usually be happy with whatever you get them as long as you know what they like and don’t like.  Don’t stress about it! 

I hope you’re all getting into the Christmas spirit!

Love, Chels

If we compare dating nowadays to how it used to be, there are too many differences to count.  In our society, “talking” is the new dating.  Even marriage rates have dramatically decreased since decades ago!  There are so many dating pointers we could learn from couples that have been together for years.  Here are some old fashioned dating tips that should be put into action today!

  • Put down the phone!  That might sound lChelsea Crockett - Date Listike something your mom tells you but trust me, it’s so refreshing!  Putting your phone down during dinner with your boyfriend or girlfriend is so much nicer than watching each other stare at your screens. 
  • Talk face to face.  Talking out your problems in person instead of over the phone or through text solves things much easier.  Technology is great, but being able to talk about touchy subjects face to face will make you much more comfortable in your relationship.
  • Go on real dates.  This doesn’t have to be every weekend!  Picking a night once a month or even a couple nights is a good way to keep your relationship fun and a priority!  You can even make a list like the one on the right.
  • Meet each other’s parents.  Meeting the fam is a good way to show you’re serious about each other!  It also shows your polite and committed to your relationship.
  • Commit, commit, commit.  I can’t stress this enough!  If you’re in a relationship with someone, devote yourself to them and only them.

If you follow these steps, they might help you better your relationship and make it last much longer!

5 Habits for a Christian Relationship

A Christ-based relationship is the only option for me in the present and future, as I grow and mature. Having faith not only as a person but as a couple as well is very important. There are certain things in a Christian relationship that should become and remain a habit to keep your relationship healthy in Christ!

  1. Pray together. I cannot stress this enough. Learning to open up your hearts and talk to God together is a huge step in your relationship. You’ll also discover some things your boyfriend may be struggling with, and you can pray for those things as well on your own time!Chelsea Crockett - Christian Relationship
  2. Read the Bible and devotionals together. Every night, pick a few scriptures to talk about and discuss. It’s nice to hear what someone else has to say about a certain passage or verse.
  3. Go to church. Going to church is crucial in your walk of faith. Knowing you have someone to encourage you and join you each Sunday is an awesome feeling.
  4. Volunteer or take mission trips. This will not only change the lives of others, but will give you and your boyfriend tons of great memories together.
  5. Surround yourselves with other Christian couples. Surrounding yourself with good people is key to staying true to yourself, whether you’re in a relationship or not!

Follow these steps and your relationship will not only grow together but in Christ too!

Love, Chelsea

If you are in a relationship of have ever been in one, you know that they are a lot of work. Happy couples have a few easy methods that help them, well, stay happy! These little tidbits of advice are things that I have learned and what my friends have learned through the wonderful world of dating.

  1. Smile when you see them: It feels amazing to walk into the room and immediately see your crush’s face light up. It makes you feel so special! Even if you aren’t particularly thrilled to see your man friend, at least act happy to see them! This will set a happy mood for the two of you.happy-couple-valentines-day
  2. Randomly text them: A lot of us are busy throughout the day, so texting someone constantly just isn’t an option. But, a cute random text every once in a while can really brighten their day and them appreciate you so much.
  3. Share your day with them: Every day, take a few minutes to share your days with each other. Tell them your concerns, your goals, your hopes and your frustrations! It will really strengthen your relationship.
  4. Tell them thanks: For everything! Did they hold the door for you? Thank them. Cook you dinner? Thank them. Help you out with homework? Thank them.
  5. Complement the socks off of them: A little complement can go a long way! You know when your guy tells you he likes the way you are wearing your hair, and it makes you smile from ear to ear because you feel valued and treasured? He needs the same feeling from you! By building each other up, you are creating a happy environment!

There are so many more ways to make your relationship a happy one, you just have to be willing to work at it!

XOXO, Chels
