IT’S romcom season, when we lap up the shiny romances of hit flicks – and find our own relationships somewhat lacking in comparison.

But instead of using the likes of Love Actually and The Holiday to berate our own love lives, what if we use them as inspiration to reignite that festive flame?

Yes you can dress up as Mrs Christmas while your other half dons a Santa Suit.

And you can get up close and personal in front of an open fire.

Here, sex expert Alix Fox gives some movie-inspired pointers.

Stockings aren't just for the fireplace

IT’S not just those ladies on Love Actually that can look sensational in a Santa-inspired outfit.

While whipping up yuletide yumminess, don stockings and suspenders or go naked from the waist down under your cooking apron.

Your partner may not spot anything different from the front, but will get a sensational surprise when you turn around.

If you have overindulged on the mince pies, this is a great trick to help you feel confident, because the apron covers the tum and you will still look hotter than a roasting oven.

Have a holiday hot-tub – and take snaps

TAKING a luxurious bubble bath like Cameron Diaz’s character in The Holiday?

Add seasonal-scented smellies for perfect relaxation — and then snap saucy selfies for your lover.

Candles will create a flattering glow against your wet, glistening skin.

Tactically placed bubbles or shaving foam “snow” can cover bits and bobs you don’t want to show.

The steam gives a ­softening Photoshop effect without fakery.

And wet hair plus messed-up make-up can look incredibly ­suggestive.

Forget pottery, make marzipan models

OK so Ghost isn’t technically a Christmas film but it’s usually on over the festive period, and who can forget THAT pottery wheel scene?

Marzipan — that Christmas cake essential — is excellent model-making material, and it is made from almonds which are an aphrodisiac.

So save a little for you both to play with like Plasticine, and mould a mini sculpture for each other.

Put your creativity to the test by making a tiny figure of your partner in the nude or simply write a saucy message in edible letters.

It will sweeten your kisses and maybe even enhance your libido.

Roll around like Bridget and Daniel

BIG cozy blankets often get draped around our homes at Christmas, ready to snuggle under while we watch The Snowman for the 54th time.

Why not lay a blanket on the floor and get frisky next to the twinkling tree lights?

Remember that scene from ­Bridget Jones’s Dairy when Bridget and ­Daniel Cleaver, played by Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant, go back to his for the first time?

There is something sexy about making love on the floor.

This is also the perfect time to crack out those massage oils you have been dying to play with.

Leave a nookie cookie for your own Bad Santa

YOUR Christmas crush might be Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa or Jake Gyllenhaal putting on a Santa hat in Jarhead, but could your other half be just as appealing?

If your lover is getting home later than you, leave a plate of biscuits and a glass of milk, or port, out for them like you would for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Why not throw in a Santa hat for good measure?

Add a note inviting them to come to the bedroom where a VERY special present is waiting for them under the covers.

Be a Die-Hard texter

SOMETIMES, navigating Christmas can feel like a Bruce Willis Die Hard film.

Just like John McClane you want to get home to your loved one but things just keep getting in the way.

Deep in the chaos, it can be difficult to grab a moment together.

So while you’re commuting home for Christmas, dashing through the snow — or more likely the town centre — remember to send each other flirty texts.

It could be photos of places you spot that would be great to get daringly sexy in, or sharing your kinky festive wish lists with each other. Ho-ho-hot!!
