Designing a custom holiday card for friends and family is a creative way to spend time with that special someone and spread the love.

The sweet aromas of baking cookies and pervasive holiday cheer may just be the catalysts for setting aside time to be romantic and sensual. Simply kissing and touching can be an erotic activity that will reconnect you and your husband or longtime love.

Spontaneous, unpredictable and flirtatious kisses will help you and your sweetheart enhance the romance in your marriage, especially during the most magical and happiest time of year.
