It’s not uncommon for couples to get so comfortable with one another that the romance seems to fade. Whether you have been with your partner for a few years or a couple of decades, there is no reason to skimp on the romance. With fresh flowers, romantic gifts and other simple gestures, you can let them know that they are still the love of your life.
The first thing you want to remember is that you don’t have to wait for their birthday or your anniversary to send fresh flowers. You can send a gorgeous bouquet to surprise them at work or you can receive the delivery at home and display them on your dining room table before they arrive home. There are many ways of surprising your partner or spouse. While they might expect a bouquet on a special occasion, a flower delivery for no apparent reason will certainly make them smile even more!
Add something special
When you order fresh flowers from your favourite florist, make sure that you take the time to look for offers that include luxury chocolates. If you do not find these included with the bouquet, you could always have the florist add a box to your order. Other optional extras may include a bottle of wine, a bright balloon or even a cuddly teddy bear. Think about what your loved one will enjoy the most and, remember, you are not limited to selecting just one optional extra! You can add as many as you like to your flower order.
Plan a date
With fresh flowers and that extra something special all taken care of, you can move on to the next phase of your plan – dinner! There is nothing like setting some time aside just for your partner or spouse. The greatest gift that you can give is your time and undivided attention. If you have small children, you could wait for them to go to bed or you could have somebody you trust look after them for a few hours. Older children could sleep over at a friend’s house for that night so that you can make the most of your date.
Finally, don’t treat this as a once-off event. There are many small changes that you can make in your daily routine to let your partner know that you are still deeply in love with them. Now, you don’t have to send fresh flowers every other week, but you certainly can do so every few months. You can also make a rule to turn off all electronic devices while enjoying dinner. Even family dinners should be a time without distractions since this is the perfect opportunity for everyone to reconnect after a long day. Changing some habits will make all the difference when it comes to your relationship and your family dynamic as a whole.
