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.
#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.
#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.
