We all want to make our significant other happy in our relationships. It’s important to always be putting in effort to your relationship and keeping the love alive.
This can admittedly be hard. We run out of grand gestures, and tend to settle into mundane routines. This will often leave us bored and feeling like the relationship has lost its magic.
But having a relationship isn’t always about grand gestures, “the honeymoon phase,” or the big milestones. Sometimes it’s about the little things.
It’s important to show how much you care through small gestures and surprises. Doing the little things to keep that magic alive.
In this post I will share with you 5 small ways to surprise your significant other.
1. Send a Text
This is great because it costs nothing, takes only a few minutes, but means a lot. Text your significant other to say you love them or you’re thinking about them. You could even type out how much they mean to you and why you love them.
This simple gesture will show your partner they were on your mind and that they’re special to you. It will brighten their day and make them feel loved.
I would also recommend adding an emoji besides a happy face or a heart. Change it up and use a flower emoji, a sun, or lips! Just a fun added detail that also shows you put in a little extra effort.
2. Get Their Favorite Drink
Whether they like Starbucks, smoothies, or sodas, treat them to their favorite drink! It only costs a few bucks and will brighten their day.
This will show them you cared enough to go out of your way for them, and that you listened when they told you their favorite drink!
3. Leave a Note
This is basically the old-fashioned version of sending a text! But I find it to be more personal and romantic.
Write your partner a little note and leave it for them to find. This can be anything from a several paragraph love letter, to a sweet and simple “I love you.”
You can leave it for them on the mirror, their car, their wallet, the front door, etc.
This will make their whole day and remind them how special and loved they are.
4. Plan a Romantic Date
Take some time to plan a surprise date! Not for an anniversary or special occasion, just because!
You could plan a dinner date at home, make reservations at a fancy restaurant, plan a picnic in the park, etc. For more date ideas, you can check out this post HERE.
Having a date for no particular reason is always sweet and special. And you have free range to decide how cheap or expensive you’d like it to be! (A date doesn’t have to be expensive to be great!)
5. Get Them Flowers
This is a very simple gesture, I know. But getting someone flower when it isn’t an anniversary or birthday means a lot. It’s romantic, sweet, and unexpected.
They’ll feel special when you give them the flowers, and they’ll think of you every time they see them!
Flowers are a bright and beautiful way to show someone you care.
No matter what stage you’re in in your relationship, it’s always important to keep the magic alive, and keep showing your partner how much you love them.
It doesn’t take a lot, any one of these small gestures would mean the world to your significant other.
