If you are lucky enough to be in a serious relationship, you know how special that person is to you. Your significant other is your person, your partner in crime, and your best friend. Sometimes, when life gets busy, it can be easy to take your significant other for granted and forget to show them how important they are to you. If this is you, or you’ve fallen into a bit of a rut, it might be time to do something special to remind them how much you care. If you’re looking for ideas for a unique date night, look no further! Here are some creative solutions to help you celebrate your significant other.
Make their favorite meal
In many cultures, food is the ultimate way to demonstrate your love to others. Food communicates warmth, comfort, and care. Plus, it’s (hopefully) delicious. If your SO is a foodie, surprise them by taking the time to make their absolute favorite meal. Not much of a cook? Don’t stress!
Due to the ongoing pandemic, many restaurants are offering fine dining delivery that will be just as delicious and work just as well. To set the scene, create a romantic setting with candles and rose petals. This will make the date feel extra special, reminding your significant other just how much you care.
Get away together
Many of us have partners who are working hard on building their personal wealth or growing their businesses. Alternatively, maybe you are the entrepreneur, hustling to secure your financial future, leaving you little or no time to dedicate to your relationship. Either way, this can create a lot of stress and negative feelings towards each other.
Instead of allowing these feelings to grow and affect your partnership, take some intentional time away to be together. As hard as it might feel, this means that both of you will have to take time away from your jobs. It’s worth it! A great vacation can help reduce stress and remind you how much fun you have with your significant other. You’ll both come back refreshed and recharged, ready for both love and your work.
Give a thoughtful gift for no reason at all
While a weekend away might seem like a grand gesture, sometimes what a relationship need is something on a much smaller scale. Some of the most important moments in a relationship are intimate, private ones shared just between the two of you. This doesn’t have to be expensive, and it doesn’t have to be a special occasion.
A small bouquet of flowers for her on a Wednesday afternoon or just because gifts for him can be all your significant other needs to feel important. It shows that, no matter how busy you get or how far away you are, you’re thinking about them and want to celebrate them.
Do all their favorite things in one day
No matter how good your relationship is, we all have things that our significant others love to do that we just don’t care for. For instance, maybe your boyfriend is really into gaming, and you’ve never touched a controller. Or, maybe you love the outdoors but your girlfriend is a homebody.
No matter what the activities are, one way to plan a super special day for your SO is to do all of their favorite activities in one day. Instead of being reluctant, lean in and ask your partner to teach you about what they love. The more enthusiastic you are, the better! The excitement of sharing something you love with a partner is infectious. The day is sure to be connective and fun for the both of you.
Every relationship needs a little tender love and care sometimes. These four ideas are just a few ways to show your significant other that you still care, by celebrating them and your relationship to
