How many times has your true love looked at you and gave you the hint “I love surprises!” Too many to mention? Well, get in the game and do those surprises. You might be surprised how much those little things make to him/her!
Take for example that bunch of flowers. It could be wildflowers, roses or tulips. It could a favorite flower. Whether you pay the full price or get a bargain and deliver them yourself, flowers can help achieve a long lasting uplifting feeling, one that is a real picker upper in a relationship, whether you are just dating or married a long time. Attach a little card with some special message and the effect is even longer lasting. So for under ten or fifteen dollars as a local supermarket, you can choose a lovely bouquet and put your partner on cloud nine!
A small box of chocolate covered cherries from a chocolate store or his/her favorite caramels-picking ones that are special can spice up your love life or a special meal! A surprise for no reason at all or for a special occasion such as the day that you first met, or your first month of dating, or just because… Just because you couldn’t imagine living without that person or Just because you wanted to see a big smile when the gift is opened… Laura Secord has quite a selection of chocolatesand at two bucks a piece you can make up a variety of favorites for under twenty dollars. A sweet surprise often makes the both of you happy, as you get to share in the goodies as well!
A picnic planned by you for a Saturday or Sunday excursion shows that you want to make your weekend special and spending it with your friend and lover, on a blanket in your favorite park or field, certainly speaks romance in a big way. Spending all week picking up items for the picnic make for a lot of anticipation on your part, all leading up to a big surprise for your partner, who is sure to be impressed with your skill in picking out a good bottle of wine, some wonderful cheeses and other wholesome foods!
Does your love one love to read? Why not pick up the latest novel by your partner’s favorite author? Wrap it up and leave it on her desk or pillow. This one is sure not to disappoint as it proves that you really do know what he/she prefers and you didn’t need to ask, as you have listened and know what is liked and desired.
Has your partner been working too hard or spent too much time in the kitchen preparing meals for you and the rest of the family? Plan a night out to a favorite restaurant. Employ the babysitter ahead of time and spring it on her when she is least expecting it. Perhaps have the meal for the children prepared when she walks in the door, and insist that you have a surprise for her so tell her to get dressed in her best outfit for you’re taking her out. It’s sure to be a swell time, when she finds out it’s her favorite place to dine.
There has much been written on that kiss when your partner is least expecting it, or that massage after a hard day’s work. Or try the surprise that a friend of mine is always impressed with, when her husband has a hot bath run with candles all around and a special drink mixed and ready when she gets home from work on Friday evenings. So many small ways to surprise and keep romance alive and well!
