Sweet romantic gestures for everyday life

Love never asks for expensive gifts.

You may have heard that before, but it’s something you must never forget.

After all, love is in the air only if it’s in the details. No one cares about the big picture.

Read these romantic gestures and use them when you’re with your partner, and love will find a cozy spot to settle in both your hearts.

#1 Clasp hands when you’re crossing a street or walking through a crowd. Wrap your arms around your lover when you’re standing close to each other, and don’t keep more than a feet’s distance between each other unless you have no choice!

#2 Write little love notes and slip it into your lover’s pocket even if it’s just a little ‘I love you’. These notes don’t have to be elaborate. Even a little lipstick mark on a piece of paper will bring the same smile! [Read: What to write in a love note]

#3 Record a love message on your partner’s phone. Set an alarm for a time when you’re not around them with a message saying “check your recorder app/voice recorder”.

#4 Surprise your partner by taking her out to a nearby favorite picnic spot late in the night while she’s still in her night suit. Spread a blanket on the ground and have an impromptu getaway with champagne and strawberries. Or plan a surprise weekend getaway to a nearby place.

#5 Sit on his lap and behave like a mischievous minx when both of you are relaxing at home. Don’t let your woman walk around the house for a few hours. Carry her around the house no matter where she wants to go. [Read: 30 super ways to keep him interested]

#6 Help your partner prepare dinner and clean the dishes. Think of something innovative to do while you’re at it, like cooking while wearing nothing but aprons or a little food fight.

#7 Fill the tub with hot water when your partner returns from a business trip or a long day at work. Get in together and give your partner a backrub and a massage. Get naughty if the mood feels right.

#8 Look into your partner’s eyes and say “I love you”. Say it like you mean it without trying to be funny or sounding corny. [Read: How to stay happy in a relationship all the time]

#9 Spend time with your partner now and then when they’re enjoying their favorite hobby, even if it’s something that doesn’t interest you much.

#10 Dedicate a song and sing it out in a karaoke bar for your partner. A few glasses of booze can give you the courage you need. But if you’re too shy for that, sing it over the phone.

#11 Plan a flash mob dance along with friends on your partner’s special day.

#12 Whisper a message in your partner’s voicemail and say something naughty in the middle of the day.

#13 Give your partner a foot massage when both of you are relaxing on the couch. Hold your partner’s hand and waltz while humming your lover’s favorite tune. Look for little ways to bring a smile on your lover’s face.

#14 Stop on your way back home and pick up your partner’s favorite dessert for a late night treat.

#15 If your partner isn’t enjoying their food at a restaurant, switch plates and give them your better dish.

#16 Slip into bed naked and surprise your partner with your impromptu nudity. Tie a little ribbon around your waist or any strategic locations if you want to be their gift for the night.

#17 Take a picture of yourself wearing your partner’s clothes and sext it to “the best partner in the world!”

#18 Give him a shave when he’s lazy. Help her brush her hair when she’s in a hurry.

#19 Give each other inexpensive well wrapped gifts every now and then. It could be chocolates, flowers, a game CD, or even a potted plant. [Read: Things that perfect couples talk about]

#20 On the days that you forget to kiss your wife goodbye, drive back home and give her an intimate kiss and a bear hug *unless you’re in a hurry*. Or come back home now and then just to kiss your wife *because you missed her already!*

#21 Bring breakfast in bed with your sweetheart’s favorite breakfast menu. Try your best to prepare them yourself. And don’t forget the flowers!

#22 Perform an erotic dance. Even better if you have two left feet which leaves your partner in splits.

#23 Be your partner’s maid for a day. Treat your partner like royalty for a day or even a few hours if your partner doesn’t allow you to play the maid for an entire day. You can even wear a French maid’s dress!

#24 Watch a romantic movie together once a month and order all the rich takeout food you’ve been craving for the entire month. Switch off your phones, cuddle up for the evening and don’t move out of each other’s sight.

#25 Give each other a happy ending massage! [Read: Happy ending massage confession]

Love is less about having sex seven times a week. And love is less about expensive gifts.

Love is more about bringing a smile on each other’s faces for no reason at all. And love is more about letting your partner know you’re still in love with little affectionate gestures.

    I wonder about some men, some are so sensitive. Cute! I am just saying… My ex used to do some of these corny romantic gestures. And i loved his corniness.


    my ex wrote a song for me. It was sooo corny and sappy. I effin loved it. The same ex was in California practicing tracks for a friends band. He was there for a month and had gotten sick. I surprised him and flew out for a weekend to nurse him back to good health. He couldn’t wipe his smile off his face.

  3. Give and Take says:

    You could try these gestures but doing it in the hope that the other person will reciprocate is not going to work. I am in relationship where the she’s always in the receiving end. I was actually laughing as i was reading this because this is how I’ve imagined an ideal relationship to be. but from what life has taught me, life is far from fantasy.

    There’s always one person who gives too much and the other who takes too much in a relationship.

    Its great to do all these things for someone you love but at the end of the day there are alot more important things to do to make your other half happy. as you can see by the top two messages, the guys still became ex’s.

    I have done and still do 17 things on that list, or try to. Shakes hand away when I try to hold hands…said nothing when I sang our wedding song on our voicemail, just deleted it. Got back in bed on our anniversary after bringing her coffee /glass water ( which I do every day)…get away from me you are naked. Don’t want to dance, don’t hug me…get your arm off me…try to talk daily banter, she will pick up cell and scroll FB or pick up remote and channel surf or just walk out of room. Let’s go on date night. Not going out on a date with you. Bring her flowers at her office, grab something for a breakfast sandwich and coffee, leave her romantic cards on night stand. Most times she doesn’t even say I really appreciate that. I do get thanks, now I am busy….get going to work.. She was away for 2 days for work. Went to give hug and kiss when she got back…quick peck and then she says, get away you are smothering me. Scowls at me…why are you scowling? You irritate me….doing what? Breathing? This has been going on 8 months…we have been married 2 years in August. Was told she loves me, likes me most times but has no romantic interest in me and quite frankly even the thought of it repulses her. So..that has stopped completely too. I go sleep on the couch quite often…not that it is more comfortable but constantly being told to get away I don’t want to cuddle, get your arm off me, I gave you a kiss already today, gets very depressing being shunned all the time

    Man that is a sad state..it must be eating away at away at your heart and soul. I was in a similar situation although my partner was not as harsh. I ended the relationship/marriage and it was the best move I made. I know there are two sides to every story, but you paint a pretty depressing and hopeless picture. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    I hate to say it but she does not love you. If you love someone and they are in need yo will help them. For instance, if you said you were hungry, she’d make you food. Summarily if you tell her you are unhappy with the state of intimacy in your relationship, she should take steps to address that. Here is what you need to do:

    In person pull her to the side, free of distractions, and say this or some combination of this –
    “, we have to talk about what is happening between the two of us. I feel like I can’t ever do anything right and that I always make you angry and
    upset. I still love you, but we need to talk because I don’t know if you still love me or if you want this marriage , so I need to hear whatever you want to say”.

    Then listen.

    If she doesn’t tell you anything or you are not able to get to the bottom of the reason you’ve lost your emotional-mental-physical connection – leave. Seriously. Divorce her. Things will NOT get better. Most importantly – you really need to become more assertive for the things you want in your life, this is also known as “Manning Up”. I suspect this is what’s turning her off. You aren’t being masculine enough, What man sleeps on the couch, when he has a perfectly warm and nice bed to sleep in? Really. Divorce her. There are PLENTY of women in this world that want to fuck your brains out — without marrying you. Until you find the one that’s right for you and you feel you can start a marriage with her, that is the better option.

    Good luck.
