Three Ideas on How to Romantically Surprise Your Spouse

Romance is not only about living together and sharing the bed, but it is also about never-ending struggles to keep your lover happy. The problem with that goal is that good intention only is not going to be enough to achieve it. You must have a sense of creativity to keep the fire of love blazing.

Present Him/Her Your Cooking

If you observe nature, animals in the mating season mostly use foods as their currency for love. And the trace of that behavior still exists in humans. You can gain your spouse’s favor by presenting him/her with food. In fact, if you have never cooked for your spouse, right now can be the perfect time to start learning and to surprise her.

If you have already had the basics of cooking, you should at least cook a three-course dinner for her. On this stage, you must unleash your creativity for menu theme. For instance, if you take European dish as the concept, then you can start with Italian pinwheels as the appetizer; Romanian pork and potato stew as the main course; and arroz con leche, or Spanish rice pudding, as the dessert. Do not make excuses! There are free tutorials everywhere on YouTube. If you claim yourself to be his/her lover, then your love should have fueled you with motivation.

Bring Your Spouse to the Travel Destination He/She Has Dreamed Of

First, if you and your partner often travel on a low budget, then you should surprise him/her with the expensive one. Book yourself a room in a five-star hotel. Pamper him/her with all the amenities and facilities. Then, you can plan a set of high-class entertainments/activities such as waterboarding, kite surfing, or riding a banana boat. The point here is to experience new stuff you and your spouse have never tried before.

Second, if you and your spouse are used to spending nights in five-star hotels, traveling on a cruise, or even affording a safari, then you should try otherwise. Challenge your love’s strength by going on a low-budget adventure. For instance, when you want to visit a waterfall in an isolated yet exotic place, you should try to hike your way there instead of hiring an off-road truck.

Create a Handicraft for Your Lover

First, you should observe what artistic objects attract your spouse. For instance, if he/she is into paintings, you can join an art class and learn to paint. The key here is not to overwhelm yourself with theoretical knowledge. You must not end the course empty-handed no matter how poorly your skill develops. What you want to show to your lover is that you are trying to understand his/her taste.

Second, do not forget to set up an event to present the gift. Not only does the making process of the item that matters but also the way you deliver it.
