Spice up your Relationship with 20+ Romantic Ideas

1. Leave a love note in his car – write notes on the back of the 12 Days of Romance cards you print out and tuck them in the visor, leave them on his seat, or put them anywhere you know he will find them.

2. Send him a sweet text in the middle of the day – a simple I LOVE YOU when he’s least expecting it is sure to put a smile on his face and make him feel special.

3. Make a point to touch him throughout the day to show your affection – a hand on his shoulder, a gentle love pat, a brief touch of his leg – these small gestures will add up and surprise him for sure.

4. Cook a favorite meal or special dessert and enjoy a candle-lit dinner for two – feed the kids ahead of time so you can enjoy your meal without them. Or better yet, send them away and enjoy time for just the two of you.

5. Make him a picture {of you, of course} for his wallet that says I LOVE YOU – you can use a free online program to add words to a picture and then print it at home.

6. Leave a rose or special flower on his pillow – what a thoughtful and inexpensive romantic gesture. Who says only women should get flowers?

7. Write out a list of the highlights of your relationship (maybe one per year?) – and then leave the list somewhere for him to find. A Top 10 or Top however many years you’ve been married list is sure to make him smile.

8. Make a picture {of you, of course} for his wallet that says I LOVE YOU – who doesn’t want a picture of his sweetie in his wallet?

9. Surprise him at work and either bring him lunch or take him out somewhere – you might want to choose a day he doesn’t have meetings and then don’t take no for an answer. Kidnap him, if you have to.

10. Meet him with a warmed towel after his shower – doesn’t that sound lovely? I’d love to have a warm towel waiting for me after a shower. What a decadent treat.

11. Turndown service before bed – leave a plate of cookies or nice piece of chocolate on his bedside table. A hotel I stayed at not too long ago had a turndown service and I found it so luxurious. It’s definitely a fun and unexpected treat.

12. Finish a project he’s been wanting you to do for a while – if you’re anything like me, your priorities might not be the same as your spouse’s priorities. Take an hour, or an afternoon, or whatever it takes, and finish something your husband will be really happy to have done.

13. Give him a head rub when he least expects it !! :D.

14. Surprise him with tickets to a movie or concert he’s really been wanting to see – several years ago I got my husband tickets to a live performance to his favorite radio show. Show tickets are things we don’t splurge on often, but every now and again they’re totally worth it.

15. Happily watch a movie of his choosing {even if you really don’t want to} – you can rent a movie, buy a movie, go to a movie, whatever floats your boat.

16. Leave him an intimate gift basket for a passionate adult evening – he’s sure to love an intimate massage creme like K-Y® TOUCH®, as it’s the perfect item to help both of you have a wonderful date night together. Head over here for a$2 off coupon for K-Y® TOUCH® to use at Walmart. You can find it in the family planning section.

17. Send the kids to grandma’s house or arrange over-nights with friends so you can enjoy that intimate gift basket even more.

18. Wear something you know your husband will like – I’m all for wearing what makes me most happy, but sometimes it’s nice to think about someone else and have a little fun.

19. Share an ice cream sundae and have fun feeding each other – need I say more?!

20. Bring him breakfast in bed.

21. Give him a foot or back massage after a particularly hard day at work.

22. Meet him at the door in the evening with his favorite drink.
