Bring the Spontaneity Back with These Romantic Ideas
5 The Love Jar
This is a fun one.The love jar is simply a jar full of individual notes on why you love someone.Things like “The way you crinkle your nose when you laugh,” and “The way you cry at every emotional moment in every movie we’ve ever watched” work well – make sure they’re real and things you do actually love.Make sure the jar is cute – Paint the top, put a label on it, glue things to it, anything that gives it a personal feel. It’s amazing to see your partner’s eyes light up with each note opened.
4 Treasure Hunt
When your loved one comes home from work, have a little note waiting, saying “Put your things away, come back here, and take me off the wall.”Have a note underneath saying “Let’s start.Go to where you know I love to sit to read the paper.”And at that location, another note of the same kind, leading him or her somewhere else. Keep the hunt going as long as you like, and have the end destination be whatever you like – a stuffed animal, a box of chocolates, something you know they wanted, tickets to a concert, play or movie, a drawing you created, or even you!
3 Champagne and Chocolates
Have champagne and chocolates waiting on the table when your loved one comes back from work. Choose cheap champagne or expensive champagne like Veuve Cliquot. Make the chocolates at home or buy beautiful expensive truffles from a high end chocolatier. Make sure you place them beautifully on a plate, have some roses present and light some candles. Play some relaxing music like Billy Holiday or something fun like French Café music Allow your lover to get situated, bring him or her over to the treats, massage his or her shoulders to bring the energy to a peaceful state and proceed to dine and chat about the day. Feed one another the chocolates for a little more intimacy.
2 The Photo Stall
Always take picture in photo stalls together.Keep these in a cute box to look over when you’re blue or if you get in a lovers’ spat. It’ll help remind you of the good times when things may not be going so well, or if your relationship is simply in a lull.
1 The Time Capsule
Find as many little memories, trinkets, photos, notes, and letters and put them in air-tight box.Decorate it to look space-agey or however you think suits your relationship. Bring your lover to the burial site as a secret and surprise him or her with the shovel to bury the time capsule.Agree on however long you want to keep it there – 10 years, 15, 20, or even 50!
