Valentine’s Day may have elapsed, but we still lie in the season of love. If you are in love, you need to know how to stay in it. Special things should not just be presented on special occasions, everyday deserves an expression of affection to show your loved one that you have them at heart and in mind all the time. And regardless of whether you are loving or being loved, this is a chance for you to experience both at the same time. Expression, however, is not always that simple or cheap. Here is a little help on a less expensive way to say “I love you” without even saying a word
A bag of kisses
With the right creativity, you can blend the romance of the season of love with every woman’s favorite accessory. Write down every kind of kiss that you can think of (examples: passionate, on the cheek, etc.). Then buy and fill a stylish red purse or bag with your “kisses” and give it to your spouse. Ask your spouse to pull out one of the several pieces of paper from the filled bag, and then give your sweetheart whatever kind of kiss is described.
The Book of Love
Find a small book or journal and fill it with reasons why you love your spouse and why you are thankful for him/her. Guys, the ladies will definitely love this, as it shows them you recognize appreciate certain things about them
Discover the fun and games of falling in love. Take your sweetheart on a scavenger hunt. Ask him/her to answer riddles to find the clues to special gift items that you placed strategically around the house. A trail of rose petals is perfect to hint them in the right direction. Remember, the last item should be the most valuable of all the presents, e.g. her favorite pair of heels, or his dream wrist watch.
After that little run around the house, running a steamy bath for you and your loved one is the way to go. Fill the tub with foam and incense to relax yourselves. Kill the lights and surround yourselves with the glow of scented candles. You might never want to leave if there is a bottle of bubbly chilled champagne to keep you laughing and reminiscing through the night. Complete the scene with the right selection of romantic songs playing from a pair of portable speakers so you won’t need to move a muscle.
Do you have kids? Here’s your chance to create a subtle yet intimate post-Valentine’s Day evening at home, without the children. Guys, we all know the ladies love a good cook. But regardless of your cooking skills, this season shows us how it is the effort that counts. It can also present a great bonding experience between you and your sweetheart, as you cook and learn from one another. Myths claim that cooking to soft, romantic music can really be a turn on! Just be sure not to burn the food while you slow-dance in the kitchen. Once the food is ready, settle down for a romantic candle-lit dinner with the same soft, romantic music as the mood-setter. To top it all off, open a bottle of your finest wine to wind down the night. With good food and the right mood, there’s no telling where the night will take you.
