In a relationship? Every now and then, all you need are sweet romantic gestures to let your partner know there’s still a lot of love floating in the air. After all, a successful relationship doesn’t need expensive shows of affection all the time. In our opinion, all that matters are sweet romantic gestures that make your lover go “aaawwww”...
Whether you’re the wife, hubby or even boyfriend or girlfriend, often a sweet gesture can make your lover's day, even if it’s in the smallest way. What matters is that you care enough to remind your other half you’re still madly in love with them.
So, without further ado, here are a few sweet romantic gestures to keep the flame burning every day – not just on February 14th:
For Her: Have the two of you been talking about going to that fancy restaurant for ages? Make that reservation and doll yourself up for dinner, linger over dessert and give each other sultry, seductive looks across the table. For something really different, why not have dinner aboard the Orient Express?
For Him: Whip up a scrummy, sophisticated breakfast complete with his favourite foods, like freshly squeezed orange juice, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, French toast and so on. Then, to make him feel like a king, serve them while he’s still in bed.
A Film Night
For Her: Women are quite partial to tear-jerking movies, so indulge her on Valentine’s night – turn down the lights, make some popcorn (don’t forget the extra butter!), and snuggle up with your lovely lady on the sofa. Pssst! You might not even have to watch the whole film. Grin.
For Him: Let’s be honest, guys enjoy a good old action movie, correct? Granted, it might not be your first choice, but chances are you’ll make him one very happy chappie, especially if you add a gigantic bag of crisps or humungous box of donuts into the mix.
A Mini Break
For Her: Woo your beloved lady with a surprise weekend away at a flash hotel or, if you’re really feelin’ the love, swan off on a short trip somewhere exotic.
For Him: Why should he and his guy mates have all the good weekends away together? Grab your guy and head somewhere fun. Look out over London's majestic skyline from the tallest building in Europe, The Shard, then relax with afternoon tea. Or, how about Paris? Prague? Or Rome? Go on; you know you want to.
A Soppy Gift
For Her: Okay, guys. While flowers might be cliché, sending a bouquet to her work is a tried-and-tested favourite, and will make her one smitten kitten. She’ll think of you whenever she looks at them.
For Him: Why not bestow him with tickets to his favourite team’s next game? Or, opt for something slightly soppy from our Valentine’s Gifts for Him range, namely the Teddy in a Tin Gift. Smiley face.
For Her: How about indulging her with a pamper day at a local spa? For good measure, throw in a manicure and pedicure. Better still, take the role of ‘masseur’ yourself. Light some candles, get out the oils... oh, and don’t forget a bottle of red wine! Do this, and you’ll make her swoon over your thoughtfulness.
For Him: What man worth his salt would readily pass the chance of a sensual, full-body massage from his significant other? Your props: candles, massage oil, sexy lingerie and a bottle of beer. Job done.
