Getting through the holidays when you are in a relationship is never easy – that's why there are relationship tips for the holidays that will ensure you still have a relationship after the holidays.2

I know that the holidays and all of that family time can cause some strain on a relationship.

These relationship tips for the holidays will not only help you survive the holidays with your partner, but they will make sure that you relationship stays strong – even through all of the stress!

1. Don't Overbook Yourselves

One of the most important relationship tips for the holidays that we're going to start out with is not to overbook yourselves.

Honestly girls, you can't split the holidays and go to two different family homes or do two different Christmas Eves in the same night.

That is where the stress can actually start and that is how you can get yourself into a fight.

Just schedule down and talk about a plan!

2. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

So your boyfriend hasn't wrapped the presents or hasn't sent out the Christmas cards yet – it's okay!

Don't sweat the small stuff.

It's not worth it and it'll cause way more problems than do good.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the holidays, talk to your boyfriend about your feelings and see what he has to say.

3. Set Boundaries

Always, no matter what, set boundaries for yourself during the holidays.

Make sure that your partner can tell when you are getting in a bad mood or even just walk away when you are starting to feel annoyed.

This can actually save a lot of pain and a lot of fighting.

Remember, it's the holidays and they shouldn't completely stress you out.2

4. Create Intimacy

Wherever you are, always make sure that you are trying to create some kind of intimacy.

This could mean anything from a small date night before the holidays or even just some cuddle time on the couch together.

That intimacy can really create a good bond and will help you get over the stress.
