While in may be the shortest month of the year, February is the month of love and romance, thanks to Valentine’s Day. You can’t go anywhere without seeing pink and red hearts, flowers, and chocolates, reminding you to spoil the person you love on Feb 14th. However, some of the most romantic things you can do to show your partner how important they are to you which won’t break the bank and can be done anytime of the year.
Make Them Dinner:
Imagine it. You get a text from your spouse telling you about a horrible day they have had or maybe they are just feeling a little down. What better way to cheer them up and make them feel cared for than to have their favourite meal ready and waiting for them when they get home? And if you aren’t the best cook or their favourite meal is a little out of your skill range in the kitchen, even just making dinner is a great way to remove a little stress and let them feel pampered in a small way. You can even up the ante and clean up afterward while they relax on the couch with a glass of wine or a cup of tea.
Random Love Notes:
Thanks to technology it easier to stay connected throughout the day. Sure, a quick “hey just thinking about you” text can be great, little hand-written notes can be better. So why not add a little note telling them how much you love them in their lunch or write it on the bathroom mirror after you shower. Or maybe you know they have a big presentation at work, slip a quick note telling them “You can do it” or “you’re going to be great!” into their briefcase. It will bring a smile to their face and remind them the most important person in their life believes in them, and that can make all the difference.
This one may take a little more planning but can be a fun way to have a little minibreak. Pack up some cheese, crackers, fruit, and other goodies, grab a bottle of your favourite wine, and a big blanket for lounging on and head for a secluded area somewhere outdoors. Or, if the weather isn’t permitting, why not have a picnic in your living room? Just make sure you turn off your phones so you can disconnect from the rest of the world and reconnect with your partner.
