Most of us only consider buying our significant other a gift or taking them somewhere special on a special occasion like their birthday, and anniversary or over the holidays. Sometimes the gestures that mean the most and leave the lasting memories are those they weren’t expecting and that you got them just because you were thinking of them and want to show them how much they mean to you. Whether you’re looking for a gift idea or special outing for an occasion or just because, here are a few ideas to help you out.
Shiny is always good
Jewellery and bling is always a good call when you’re unsure what to get. Before you head to the store, be sure to have a look at their existing collection to get a idea of what their style is. If time is tight and you have an idea of what you’re looking for, buying jewellery online is a great time saver. There are great retailers online like Raffini Jewellers where you can find great value and high quality goods. Remember to double check ring sizes if you’re going that route.
Take it outside
If you’re looking for a more inexpensive option, taking a meal outside and having a picnic is a great option. You could simply throw a few items from your pantry into a basket with a bottle of wine and a blanket and you’re good to go. When you want a more refined offering, you could order a professionally compile picnic at a nearby botanical garden, wine farm or restaurant with a garden. In the summer months open air cinemas are a great date night idea. Many cinemas have food and snacks available for purchase and some even offer picnic baskets as well. While the movie line up may vary, you could find a few romantic comedies that would be perfect for date night.
Learn something new
Learning new skills together is the perfect way to bond with your partner. The possibilities are endless, but finding something you will both enjoy is key. If your significant other would like you to be a bit more handy in the kitchen, why not try a cooking class? It will show you’re listening to them and are keen to improve yourself in a way that benefits the relationship. If’ you’re both looking for a creative outlet, a painting or sculpture class is a good direction to go in. Who wouldn’t enjoy to have their very own Ghost moment in real life?
Ditch the wheels
There’s nothing more inexpensive than simply going for a walk. Why not ditch the car and talk a walk to get your morning coffee this Saturday? You might just discover a new spot you wouldn’t see on your driving route. A walk is the perfect way to stretch your legs, clear your mind and focus on having a good conversation. A quick sunset walk before dinner helps you work up an appetite and set the mood for a romantic meal.
