Get Close This Christmas

Get Close This Christmas

With temperatures dropping, cars getting iced up and transport coming to its yearly standstill, there’s never been a better time to get cosy and cuddle up with someone special...

Everyone knows that Christmas is all about being close with your loved ones, and this year Durex is inviting you to get closer than ever with the person you look for under the mistletoe. With temperatures dropping, cars getting iced up and transport coming to its yearly standstill, there’s never been a better time to get cosy and cuddle up with someone special.

 

Nevertheless, for many the yuletide period is so closely linked to consumerism, confectionary and crowds, that it has converted us into a nation of grumbling Scrooges. How can we get back to the warm joy that the sound of Santa’s sleigh bells used to bring? We’ve got a few suggestions...

 

The best part of getting all wrapped up to go outside, is unwrapping each other when you go back in…

 

 1. Mistletoe

Popping this pretty plant up around your home will make that “Honey, I’m home” feeling ever sweeter. Long associated with lovers puckering up in frosty doorways, it’s the perfect way to introduce some yuletide romance to your humble abode. Stick some above the entrance to your bedroom. (And bathroom… and kitchen…)

 

2. Mulled Wine

This drink is about as synonymous with Christmas as Santa himself. Create an excuse to cuddle up and get hands-on in the kitchen as you brew up some traditional mulled wine. Of course, this is just one of many ways to get that warm fuzzy feeling inside – we can think of another which won’t leave you with a hangover...

 

3. Decorating the Christmas Tree

Keep the romance alight all year round, and kick it off with an evening decorating everyone’s favourite indoor fauna: the Christmas tree. Reconnect with each other as you connect the Christmas lights, and adorn the tree with baubles and tinsel. We bet you’ll be powerless to resist the mirthful merriment that’ll be fostered as you admire the finished tree in all its splendour, and before long those twinkly lights won’t be the only things that are turned on...

 

4. Building a Snowman

Layering up in your thermals to go outside and build a snowman in sub-zero temperatures is part and parcel of any Christmas-lover’s festive repertoire. And as you put the final touches to Frosty’s winter get-up (carrot nose and raisin eyes being the essential wardrobe items), enjoy shooting each other furtive glances and watch that rosy glow build up on your loved one’s cheeks. After all, everyone knows that the best part of getting all wrapped up to go outside, is unwrapping each other when you go back in…

 

So, there you have it. With Santa Baby on the radio, stockings up hung up on the fireplace, and our Sexlection Box tucked away until the 24th, Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year, so give our festive frolics a chance and there’ll be another reason you have a sleepless night this Christmas Eve…
