Knowing your partner's love language is one of the best ways to keep your relationship alive. Mixing that with a few surprises can be a beautiful and thoughtful thing to do for your significant other.
Here are a few ways in which you can surprise them on your next date night or when the moment is right.
Love notes with a twist
A grand romantic gesture can be done through simple things. Take time to create post it notes that your significant other can find around the house on items that are relevant to them. You can take it one step further by buying cute items and placing your notes on or in them. Compliment, flirt, or be cute with your message. Whatever you choose to do make sure that it is something that will resonate with them to show them why you love them.
Create a grand entrance
A grand entrance can be surprising and also welcomed at the end of a long day. There are many ways in which you can go about creating this entrance; you can choose to decorate it with classic rose petals that lead to a candlelit dinner, helium balloons with all your favourite pictures of you together or a glass of their favourite beverage chilling in a lavish bucket that leads towards the grand entrance. Be creative and don't be afraid to be spontaneous!
Art & wine evening
Leave them a cryptic note or send them a random text during the day telling them to get dressed up and be ready. When the time is right sweep them off to an art gallery or museum of interest. You can choose to go to different galleries and have wine before each stop. While you may be formally dressed, it doesn't mean that the night has to be serious. Surprising your partner with a small gift at each place can be the cherry on top to an amazing evening.
A lazy evening with a twist
It may seem like we have been spending more of our time indoors than out, so why have a date night indoors? It may be less stressful to plan a night out than one in. The twist that you can throw into the evening is removing all technology, even your beloved streaming service to spend time together. Unwind and really enjoy each other's company over a homemade meal or wine and dessert.
The spontaneous weekend road trip
If you have children, then it's time to call up a babysitter. Going on a spontaneous road trip can be something that you will both need and enjoy. A change of scenery to an undiscovered place can help you let go and be in the moment. You get to choose how long you want it to last. Whether it's a day trip into a town you have never been to or a weekend away on the open road, make sure to get your tunes ready and some of your favourite snacks for exploring scenic routes.
