The best (but also most daunting) part of the holiday season is giving gifts. Everyone wants to have the most thoughtful gifts, but sometimes it feels like every gift is played out and unoriginal, especially when you're shopping for that special someone. One unique way to approach gifts this holiday season is to consider your partner's love language. The five love languages — Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Acts of Service, Gifts, and Touch — inform and describe how you best receive love in relationships. People with Quality Time as their main love language like to spend meaningful, uninterrupted time in their relationships. If Words of Affirmation is your main love language, you love to hear positive and encourageing words often from your partner. Physical Touch people love a good cuddle and other displays of physical affection, and Acts of Service people appreciate when their partners take initiative to make their lives easier by doing something for them like cooking or filling their gas tank. The last love language is receiving gifts, and people with this love language enjoy when their partner shows love through sentimental items.
Think about your partner and what they value most to determine their love language (or just ask them!), and keep reading to shop gifts that cater to each one perfectly. These gifts will hold special meaning and be specifically catered to your partner this holiday season.
