On anniversaries or other special occasions, guys (or gals) are often searching for some easy, but impressive romantic ideas for her so she’ll know you’re still the one. Often many men just don’t “get it” when it comes to recognizing the signs of simple flirting or battle to come up with original romantic ideas for her.
Let’s think outside the traditional box of chocolates or long-stemmed red roses to deliver one or more of these easy but still impressive ideas for her to fall in love with you all over again.
1. RAK, For No Reason
You don’t need to wait for a red-letter date for inspiration when it comes to romantic ideas for her since any or every day is special. Let her know you care with little RAKs (random acts of kindness).
One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is through little love notes in random locations. A sticky note on the bathroom mirror, a coy message in their lunch bag, purse or pocket will do the trick.
2. A Spectacular Spa Day Out Or Bubbly Evening At Home
While it may seem counterintuitive being apart, an impressive romantic idea is to treat your gal to a spectacular spa day or an evening of soaking in a hot bubble bath at home.
Gift certificates are available online for different spas across the country or you could fill up your tub at home with hot water, a fragrant bath bomb and candles and leave it waiting for her. You could always join her at the spa for a relaxing massage or climb in the tub to soak away your stress together.
3. A DIY Rubdown
Maybe you want to get a little more romantic and would prefer to take on a massage yourself. Don’t forget some baby oil and scented candles or add in some wine to set the mood. Taking the time and putting in the effort yourself is one way to up the romance stakes.
4. Plucking Instead Of Purchasing
Most women enjoy getting flowers, but instead of buying them from the store, pick them yourself. You can find them in the back yard, at a local park or another outdoor venue. Finish the presentation with a ribbon and personalized love note.
5. Burn Baby, Burn
Back in the day, mixtapes were all the rage and today, why not try burning your own CDs instead. Whether it’s some of her favorite tunes, songs you listened to when you were first dating or a selection of romantic music, creating your own playlist of love songs is a very romantic way to show her that you care.
6. Read And Write
It may seem cheesy, but consider writing or reading her a poem. It doesn’t even need to be something written by you. If writing isn’t your strong suit, search the internet for some classic poetry to read that expresses how you feel or make a list of all the things you love about her.
7. Date Night
It’s always a good idea to carve out some special one-on-one time to enjoy together. Some fun date night ideas could be:
- See a movie in the theater or watch one at home
- Take a walk through the park or have a picnic
- Date night doesn’t have to happen at night, breakfast in bed works too
- Grab some fast food or order pizza and chill at home together
8. Pretend It’s Your First
Speaking of dates, pretend it’s your first one all over again. You could recreate how you first met or show up dressed to the nines like you’re going out for the first time and you really want to impress her. Here’s the moment to arrive with flowers and chocolate so she’ll feel extra special.
9. Chocolate Kisses All The Way
This one takes a bit of planning, but is easy while still having a wow factor. Choose a time when you know beforehand that your partner will be coming over or arriving at home. Purchase of a few bags of Hershey’s (or similar brand) of chocolate kisses. Leave a trail of these treats along with a note that says, “follow me” leading from the doorway to another room in the house.
Lay in wait for her arrival and tell them, “Now that I’ve kissed the ground that you walk on, you’re ready for the next step in the plan.” That could include a wedding proposal, a soak in the bathtub or the presentation of a romantic dinner.
10. Romantic Dining Advice From Dogs
One of the recent live-action remakes from Disney was Lady and the Tramp, a classic canine love story. It’s difficult to imagine this movie without thinking of one of the most iconic scenes, that romantic, candlelit dinner shared by those adorable dogs outside Tony’s Restaurant. Rather than going out to dine, consider making this dinner yourself and serving your lady a great meal.
Pasta served with meatballs in a tasty red sauce along with warm bread requires no more talent than boiling water and making toast – you can do it!
According to experts in the wine industry, either white or red wine is appropriate to accompany spaghetti and meatballs. Set the table before you start cooking and set the perfect atmosphere with candles and proper wine glasses and napkins. While the spaghetti is cooking, get the bread going and pour the wine. Voila, serve and enjoy with your partner.
Use one of these easy romantic ideas for her to spoil your special someone or as inspiration to come up with your own. Prepare to enjoy all the romance that we guarantee will follow!
