08Merry Christmas to my one true love. You are the Christmas gift I will forever question my luck on receiving, so I’ll spend the rest of my life making sure I stay on the nice list!


09For me, the best part about Christmas is being all snuggled up on the couch in our PJs, drinking hot chocolate and watching Home Alone. What I’m trying to say is, just being with you makes my Christmas merry. Merry Christmas handsome, the couch at 6?

10Being with you makes me as happy as I was when I was a child opening my gifts on a Christmas morning. Now that I’m an adult, I wake up to my gift every morning beside me in our bed. Thank you for making me the happiest man in the world and for making every single day bright. Merry Christmas darling.


11I don’t need a gift this Christmas, all I want for Christmas is you.



12I’m not excited for Christmas this year just for the gifts. I’m excited because I will be spending it with you. Merry Christmas


13To the most special man in my life: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


14I may not say this as often as I should, but you are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I’m so glad you will be a part of my Christmas plans this year. Merry Christmas.


15The best Christmas gift of all is your heart. It doesn’t require fancy gift paper for me to cherish it, or see it for the true gift it is. For tonight though, could you wrap it in some lingerie? Merry Christmas babe.
