Holidays can be a magical time of the year– but the pressure to be everywhere, see everyone, and do everything can put immense stress on your relationship. Here are a few ways that you can use our relationship app features to make it through the most festive time of the year. 1) Make a few lists– and be sure to check them twice! To manage holiday responsibilities, coordinate party planning, or track purchases that you and your sweetie make during a holiday shopping trip, look no further than Couple lists. Adding items to a list is simple, and lists can be reordered however you’d like by tapping the “Edit Function.” Once you’ve completed a task, you can even see who completed it once it is crossed off the list. Protip: add a little cheer to your Couple lists with emoji, which can be added as a keyboard in the language settings of your device. 2) Share gift ideas and opinions in just a few taps. Avoid typing novel-length descriptions via smartphone when you’re in a holiday rush (read: so many Christmas cookies to eat, so little time!) by snapping a picture and sending it to your partner. Need an opinion on a gift idea? You can also send a quick video (practice those voice-over skills!) with a rundown of what you need to say for your partner.
3) Keep gifts a surprise. If you’re hiding holiday gifts around the house from your kids, or a young couple hiding a surprise from family, take a picture of your gift in a hiding place to share where you’ve stashed the goods from prying eyes. Extra bonus points if you use our Secrets for an extra layer of security in your gift-hiding adventures. 4) Make Couple for Web your online shopping companion. If you’re doing your holiday shopping online, don’t worry about switching from your phone to your computer to chat to your sweetie– login to our beta web app here! You can share
links with one another, upload images, and engage in all of the tactical communications necessary to find the perfect presents for everyone in your lives. Is there a Couple feature that has helped you survive the end of the year? Share your favorites in the comments!
