They say love is what keeps a marriage alive, but over the course of time the spark may fade, and romance can take a dive down the priority list. Whether it’s overwhelming responsibilities or a busy work schedule, there often seems an excuse.
Once in a while, you should just let your husband know that you may not express it all the time but your love for him grows every day. He will be over the moon by the simple appreciation of the compromises he makes and how hard he works.
A little gesture, a small gift or a simple “ I Love You” will do the trick, however, if you wish to make it a memorable moment, then these ideas will definitely help you.
Grand dinner for two
Arrange a dinner date at home and cook what he loves the most. You can make it a three-course meal and remind him that you know his choices pretty well and you still keep him on the top of your priority list, no matter how hectic and busy life gets. He will be on cloud nine – after all, we all know the way to a man’s heart. Impress him once again with your culinary skills.
Midnight cake delivery
Create a date so romantic that it will be etched in his memory for life. Put two chairs on the balcony or in the garden, play his favourite romantic tracks on low volume and surprise him with a heart shaped cake in his favourite flavour. Choose midnight delivery while placing the order. A single slice will do the trick and leave him gasping for more.
Dedicate a song on air
This might take a little more work than the others, but it will totally worth your time. Dedicate a romantic song for him on his favourite radio show. He will definitely fall in love with you all over again. You can choose the song of his choice or something that is special for both of you like the song which played on your first date or your first dance as man and wife.
Write a love note
Write a hearty love note and hide it in his pocket, lunch box or his bag on any ordinary morning. Imagine his surprise when he will find this amidst the tiring and hectic ongoings at the office and read the sweet messages written on that piece of paper telling him how much you miss him. He will know that every day, you wait for him to come back home with a smile on your face.
Plan a movie marathon
Pick a weekend and plan a movie marathon with your husband at home. Order some pizzas, sodas, beer and cuddle with him under the blanket while watching a rom-com, comedy or thriller movie together. Snuggling with him produces oxytocin, known as “love hormone” which will make him fall in love with you even more and give you both a chance to spend some quality time with each other.
With these love-filled ideas, you don’t need to spend a big fortune. Just plan them with love in your heart and let your beloved hubby know that he is still as important to you as he was before, or even more!
