Whether you’ve been with your partner for a couple of years or a lifetime, it’s important to show your love and appreciation from time to time. If you don’t, the spark will naturally run out, so putting in an effort to demonstrate your commitment will serve you both well. Below, we’ve put together some romantic gestures that will relight your fire and please your partner.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to show your partner you love her. Give her a compliment from time to time – let her know you think she looks beautiful in her dress, and that you’re thinking of her when you’re at work. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut and forget about the romance and attention – a compliment out of the blue from time to time will lift per spirits and remind her that she’s the most important person in your life. Just don’t overdo them!
Another romantic gesture to consider is affection. Hold hands when you’re watching a movie at home or out on a walk, and ask for a hug when you get home from work. This regular contact is so important – it keeps you close as a couple and ensures the spark stays alive. If you’re busy with the kids or don’t have time for a romantic snuggle on the sofa at the end of a busy day, a quick kiss on the cheek and a rub of the feet in bed will keep you both happy.
When your relationship first started, the chances are that it was filled with excitement. If you want to bring that excitement back, consider surprising your girlfriend, partner, or wife, with something unexpected. We’re not saying that you need to spend a thousand dollars on a new handbag or blow the budget for a romantic meal, but doing the dishes out of the blue, leaving your partner a note when she gets home from work, and washing her car when she is looking after the kids will demonstrate to her that she’s loved, and always on your mind.
Buy her a gift
They say money can’t buy happiness, and though that’s true to an extent, the odd gift from time to time won’t harm. Whether you buy your girlfriend some red roses or treat her to some traditional Claddagh Rings designed to symbolize your love and commitment for one another, there are so many ways to put a smile on her face. But make sure you perform a mix of the above – just buying gifts in lieu of attention and affection will lead to divorce.
There you have it – some of the most romantic gestures you should add to your relationship. Let us know which of these are your favourite and get in touch if you’ve got any others we should add to this list. And check back soon for more news on relationships and love.
