Make Your Holiday More Romantic: 50 Cozy Holiday Ideas for Couples

6. Strip down: "My husband and I are moving just a few days before Christmas, which definitely puts a damper on any plans for big parties with lots of friends. But we both decided that will be fine. It's our first New Year's Eve as a married couple, and I can't think of any better way to ring in the new year than with a plate of shrimp, a glass of champagne and my sweetheart in his boxers." --iVillager Kristy

7. Change the celebration date: "In order to enable our adult children to spend time with their spouses' families, we let them go to their in-laws' on Thanksgiving, and then we celebrate as a family a week later. Meanwhile, my husband and I take a mini vacation to Mexico -- time alone we really enjoy. Works great!" --an iVillager

8.Get a baby-sitter: "My mother is watching my baby boy for three days so that my boyfriend and I can spend a little time alone. We're going to Las Vegas for New Year's. There is nothing more romantic than standing in the middle of the Vegas strip with a million little lights sparkling around you and everyone singing in the new year." --iVillager Tricia

9. Steal away: "If you and your partner will be attending lots of parties, create a subtle signal and use it mid-party when you want to steal a few minutes of time for just the two of you. Duck into the kitchen or a quiet corner and ... connect." --Sherry Amatenstein, iVillage's Dating Doyenne
