Today let’s look at some romantic ideas for her or for him that can mean so much…
8 Simple romantic ideas to surprise your spouse:
Just a tiny amount of effort goes a long, long way, when it comes to telling your partner that you love them. Remembering birthdays, anniversaries and Valentine’s Day is all well and good, but doing something unexpected and, even better, in an unexpected setting, is even more special. Of course don’t forget the regular events, but also try to surprise your partner now and then, with no reason. It’s great fun planning and delivering the surprise and the effort it takes will truly show them that you really care. Everyone’s different and you know what would really touch your lover’s heart, but here are a few ideas to get you thinking:
1. Do something that you hate!
Watching the latest Marvel superhero move might not be your cup of tea, but your partner may be dying to see it, but knows you’ll get bored, so is happy to give it a miss. Surprise your partner with tickets for two to the premiere of a much awaited film or book, a night at a special sports event, even though you hate sports. Either way, it just shows you care enough to share their pastime with them.
2. Dedicate a song
Romantic ideas don’t need to be super expensive and complicated to bring to life. Imagine your partner’s surprise when they hear their name on the radio! Getting a song played on the radio for your lover only takes a phone call and it will really brighten up their day! Make it special and select a song that means something to both of you, perhaps the first song you danced to together…
3. Send an email
For many of us, the first chore of the working day is to plough through the email Inbox; timely reminders of what needs to be done today, boring office circulars and the inevitable spam. Break into your partners routine with a surprise email to their work email address. It will put a smile on their face and make them really look forward to coming home again that night.
4. Make a treat
What’s your partner’s favorite treat? Rice Krispy cakes, chocolate chip cookies or a favourite dessert? Show them that you love them by remembering their favourite and preparing it for them as a surprise treat for when they get home. Your partner will love it!
5. A jar of sweets
Fill a huge jar with your partner’s favourite candy or even better, if they have a special favourite, like red M&M’s, then pick out all the red ones for them! This is one of the simplest romantic ideas, but it can mean so much.
6. His and Hers
Matching clothes to wear when you go out will generally go down about as well, as identical dresses bought for two sisters to wear to a childhood party, but his and hers gifts for the home do show a sense of sharing and togetherness. From his and hers towels to matching silk pyjamas or coffee mugs it’s just a nice way of saying: “I love our togetherness!”
7. Spread a message
Create anticipation and eventual surprise by sending a message, one word at a time, on a postcard each day. Darling…..I am…….going to……..????????? We’ll leave the final bit to you.
8. I just called to say ‘I Love You’
Stevie Wonder had this one right; just phone sometimes with no other reason, than to tell your partner that you can’t wait for them to come home.
Romantic ideas are countless. Play with it and use your imagination. Even in today’s hectic world, romance can still be alive and well, but it does sometimes need a bit of nurturing. Surprising your partner every now and then with a simple romantic gesture or treat that they will love, will just remind them that you care and help to keep the boredom at bay.
