Is there romance in your relationship?
Romance shouldn’t be about a lavish date or showering your loved one with expensive gifts.
Here’s our cute ideas to keep romance alive without breaking the bank!
1. A romantic bed picnic.
Reconnect! Stop by your local grocer and pick up chopped fruit, chocolate sauce or chocolate bars to put in a melting pot for dipping. You can also pick up your favorite cheese and crackers—it’s brie for me please! Once you get home, now you are ready to set the mood in your room. Light candles, load up the CD or Mp3 player with some great jazz or your favorite love songs, and spread out a blanket on the bed. Spend the evening simply talking like you may not have in a long time.
2. Speak love for 30 days.
Send a different sexy, loving message each day. Mix it up, send a text one day and leave a voicemail message the next day.
3. Plan a weekend getaway during the month.
Spend the night in a local hotel for a change of scenery, or stay the entire weekend if you can. Call us to create an atmosphere of ambiance for you to relax, relate, renew and enjoy the sunrise together.
4. Slow it down.
One of my favorite slow jam lyrics provided by the late great Teddy Pendergrass, goes “Turn out the lights, light a candle.” Load up your favorite slow song and have a private dance together. Your kitchen, bedroom or living room make the perfect dance floor. You can even surprise your spouse by putting the music on, grab them and begin to take the lead.
5. The power of a love letter.
Write a love letter or share something you are really proud of your spouse for. A few ideas you can write about are: an accomplishment, a selfless act of kindness, what you love the most and why. Ladies seal it with a kiss and a dash of his favorite perfume. Guys, a spritz of her favorite cologne will do.
6. A late night stroll.
Go for late night walk under the stars and enjoy the breezy night amidst the calmness. Hold hands and stop for long kisses. It’s the little things done with love from the heart that keep you connected and the romance alive.
7. Take a bubble bath together.
Once a week take a romantic bubble bath together—pick a day and work it into your schedule. Light candles and sprinkle in rose petals for an added dash of romance. Oh, and don’t forget to lose your personal inhibitions ladies, you know the ones about the “extra” inch or two you may have. Self confidence goes a long way.
