The festive period is full of wonderful food, games and company, but sometimes, days can go by before you realise that even though you’ve been around your partner 24/7, you haven’t had much quality time alone together. Not with all those family members you’ve been hosting.
10 Simple Ways To Reconnect With Your Partner In 2020
Now it’s January, though, and your living room finally resembles an actual living room once more, you have the mental space to reconnect. It might be easier said than done, of course, even with the best will in the world, but there are things you can buy to inject fun, romance and intimacy back into your relationship.
From cards to spark honest conversations that don’t feel intimidating, to the perfect recipe for a cosy night in, these are simple ways to focus on one another. Plus, they’re a whole lot cheaper than therapy as a first port of call.
So, finish those Christmas leftovers and make space for a renewed sense of connection. Amazon Prime Subscription, Amazon, £7.99 per monthWatching boxsets with your partner can bring you closer, a study concluded a few years back – and I wholeheartedly believe this.

An Amazon Prime membership means your next series is just a few clicks away. (Psst: Modern Love is a good one to start with).
