As a newlywed I love for my husband to show me a little extra affection every now and then! And even though your husband may not be "Prince Charming" everyday, it's great if he is every once in awhile. I love to receive a bouquet of flowers for no reason, it shows me that I was on his mind that day and he wanted to give me something to make me smile! So bring your guy over to the computer or send this to him via email, because this is practically a public service announcement to bring a little romance back into your relationship.
"Romance makes a woman feel worthy of her relationship and is important to her identity in relationships. It can actually build self-esteem, as well as bond her to her husband," says relationship expert April Masini. "Knowing this, men can make their women feel great about themselves, their husbands and the marriage, simply by creating romantic gestures."
Here are six ways your husband can bring some romance into your lives!
An Unexpected Gift You've Been Coveting
Receiving an unexpected gift catches me off guard, and let's me know he is thinking about me on days that aren't anniversaries, birthdays and holidays. Whether it's a whimsical, fun gift, a traditional dozen roses or a meaningful piece of jewelry, the fact that it's all about you is what makes it romantic.
A BIG Sacrifice
If you despise his ratty leather chair and he willingly, without being asked, gives it away, that's romance! Or spending the money he was saving for a new sports car on a kitchen remodel you really wanted instead, can also be a romantic gesture.
A Weekend Getaway
Plan it or surprise her, take her camping or meet her in a hotel suite with champagne — it doesn't matter. The fact that it's about the two of you — not family, not work and not someone else's wedding or birthday — is what makes it a romantic.
A Spa Date
Maybe it's something he's set up just for you because he wants you to unwind and feel pampered, or if it's for the two of you because you've both been under the gun and need some down time.
Cooking for you
Surprising you with a romantic dinner that he whips up himself, when you're the one who usually does the cooking, is very romantic because he's trying to please you, make your life easier, and feed you! I wouldn't expect this from my husband because he can literally only make cereal but I guess I would be excited!
Splurging on you
If he knows there was a pair of shoes or a dress that you put back on the rack because it was too pricey, and he arranges to buy the exact thing you wanted because he wants you to be happy, that can be a very romantic gesture. I definitely want my husband to do this!!
