Love can never be measured. That is the reason why you cannot show someone exactly how much you love them. But with your actions, your significant other will know whether you care for them and what they mean to you.
Romantic gestures are one way of doing so. No matter what gift or what you do for your lover, for it to mean something, it should come from the heart. When it does, you will not have a hard time wondering what exactly to do as the inspiration will come on its own.
On that note, below are a few creative gestures to help your loved one know what is in your heart and make your love grow deeper.
Get them a gift
We all love gifts and surprise your loved one with something they have been yearning for is bound to make them fall in love with you all over again; especially if it is not on their birthday or any special occasion.
If they love jewelry, you could get them nice vintage pieces from estate jewelry. If they are not into jewelry, explore other interesting options you know they would love.
Kidnap them and take them somewhere special
To make it successful, plan a day out with your loved one on their day off or when they are not busy. Let them know that you have something arranged, blindfold them and take them to the location. This could be a place both of you have always wanted to visit or something that the two of you do together. The mystery is what will make the activity more intriguing.
Look up the stars
Another beautiful thing to go is to grab a blanket, some wine and watch the stars. Or you could opt to find out when the next meteor is and book an appointment with your significant other.
Don’t be a cliché
Doing the same things on a routine basis can be boring. To make it more exciting, do not do things you are supposed to or just because other people say they are romantic. Step away from the traditional roses, chocolates and expensive dinners. Furthermore, not every girl loves them. Step out of the box and come up with other creative ways to make your loved one feel special.
Cook their favorite meal
They say the way to a man’s heart is through the stomach. This, however, works both ways. A scrumptious meal holds more power than most individuals realize. As much as it is a basic need, it is also a way of bringing people together. This is the sole reason why food is one of the major things on most occasions. Furthermore, nothing feels as good as coming home to your most favorite meal.
Why not surprise your loved one with a spontaneous date? The idea is to go out somewhere and do some unplanned things. Do not underestimate the power of a little break from your daily routine, so long as you stay safe.
Do the things they love
A little appreciation goes a long way. Make the effort to engage in activities your loved one loves to do. Appreciate them even if you are not the biggest fan. This will show that you have an interest and may pleasantly surprise your partner.
For instance, my boyfriend is a huge fan of football unlike me. Nevertheless, I do go out on the weekends to watch a game or two. To my surprise, I have found myself taking an interest in the game. I am not saying that you should change yourself, but giving new things a try is not such a bad idea.
Text them just because…
Just because you have been dating or are married for a while does not mean you cannot have some fun texting. Sending your loved one some inappropriate texts will not only excite them but also make them feel special.
Recreate some of your special memories
If you have been together with your significant other for more than six months, try and recreate some of your most special memories together. You could re-live your first date together by doing things exactly as they earlier happened. You could pick them, take them to the same restaurant and sit on the same table you sat on the first time you were there together. This simple gesture will have new relationship feelings rushing back.
