It's my turn to come up with a surprise advent activity, and I'm running out of steam! Help me find a short, seasonally-appropriate thing to do with my fiance.

My fiance and I do an advent calendar every year. It's mostly filled with daily activities (ranging from 2-60+ minutes); things like "Let's have homemade hot chocolate while watching that TV fireplace thing!" or "Let's take a winter hike!". A few of the days we'll give little gifts (<$10), but mostly it's nice ways to spend time together, even very briefly. We trade off days throughout the month.
I've done a great job of planning out the activities -- except for today. Yesterday I had a day-long, very draining interview. I've got another today. I simply haven't had time to come up with an idea, so I'm turning to the hive mind! I'm looking for:
-Something relatively short (we have dinner plans tonight, so advent activity has to take place between about 6:15-6:45pm or after we return from dinner)
-Hopefully something kind of festive/seasonal?
-Easy. Please, my brain is going to be mush after today.
Just a note: I'm not interested in any suggestive/x-rated advent ideas. Thanks!
