Are You A Hopeless Romantic ?
Always on the hunt for new ideas to add to your romance arsenal?
As if there wasn’t enough food for your hopeless romantic hunger on our first post – 110 Romantic Things To Do – Bet You Never Thought of All These Before? Now we have even more powerful ideas for you to add to your reserve supply of potential activities..
5 minutes devoted to romance = 1 day of harmony.
Think of all the times that your failure to do some little thing—like calling to tell her you’ll be home late from work, or mailing her a “special” birthday card on time—has caused a full day of unhappiness. Consistent attention to your lover will keep your relationship balanced and happy. It doesn’t take much! Little gestures go a long way.
Give your lover a dozen roses—and do it with a creative twist.Give eleven red roses and one white rose. Attach a note that reads:
“In every bunch there’s one who stands out— and you are that one.”
Gallantry never really goes out of style. So every once in a while kiss her hand with a flourish. Note: The proper way to kiss a woman’s hand is to lower your lips to her hand. You don’t raise her hand to your lips.
Keep candles in the car. Eat dinner by candlelight the next time you go to McDonald’s.
Run your hands under hot water before joining your partner in bed(!)
Ask her best girlfriend—or her mother—for help. Ask her to go shopping with you (secretly!). Tell her you want to spend one afternoon shopping for a year’s worth of gifts for your partner. Establish a budget, let her think about it for a week, then go shopping together.
Don’t just walk into the house tonight the way you always do. Pause on the porch; ring the doorbell; and greet her with one red rose and a bottle of champagne.
Buy a stuffed animal and give as a gift of your love for a special occasion. Then, periodically, hide that stuffed animal in odd places your love will find it accidentally ( refrigerator, medicine cabinet, food pantry, linen closet, etc.) It is just like saying I Love You all over again!
Want to jazz up the presentation of a special meal? Buy a little hunk of dry ice from a local ice house. Put it in a bowl of water and place it on your serving tray. You’ll create wondrous, billowing white clouds!
Write “Romantic Reminders” on your “To Do” list at work. Use your Calendar app if you have one. Romantic Reminders will remind you with plenty of time to properly prepare for your next “surprise”.

from champagne bottles.

special anniversary. Make a collage, a scroll, a
memory box, or a scrapbook.

• Give her one thousand Hershey’s Kisses.
• Remove all the little paper strips (that
say “Kisses” on them) from a couple
hundred Hershey’s Kisses. Fill a little

present them to her.
• Write a clever certificate explaining that the little paper slips are
coupons redeemable for one kiss each.
Get her a wristwatch. Inscribe it with: I always have time for you.
• Write her a love letter or poem on one
sheet of paper. Glue it to thin cardboard; cut it up into puzzle shaped
pieces; then mail all the pieces to her.

Write “I love you” on every page of a pack of Post-It
Notes. Stick ’em all over the house!
Write a short note to your lover that’s spread out over
several postcards. Write a short phrase on each postcard, then
mail one at a time. You’ll build anticipation for the romantic
conclusion on the final postcard. (Maybe deliver that last one in

Put a tiny little love note inside a balloon. Insert the message, blow up the balloon and tie it. Then attach a pin to the string.
Hopeless Romantic “make-up” idea:

Get an empty bottle of prescription pills.
Fill it with green M&M’s. Create a custom label, something like this:
