Romance was so easy back in the day when you and your spouse were young and just dating. Even the first few years of marriage proved to be quite romantic. But then, that was a time before kids, mortgage payments, broken furnaces and expensive babysitters.
During the first few years of the relationship, going out for a romantic dinner was no problem at all. But several years later, and three kids later, it is difficult to even fit in a good morning or a goodbye kiss. Each day takes some planning and time is tight, but you need to schedule romance to keep your marriage alive.
If you are in need of some romantic inspiration, here are a few ideas that will take the boring out of your marriage.
Start With a Gift
When was the last time you presented your spouse with a gift for no other reasons than just because? Sure, you have flowers delivered to her on her birthday and always find the right anniversary gifts, but surprise her once with a gift out of nowhere and watch her smile and blush.
And don’t buy her just anything you see at Macy’s, you are better than that. Do your spouse right by purchasing a crystal gift from Crystal Prints.
Look as Good as You Can
It has probably been awhile since you changed up your hairstyle or bought some groovy new clothes. In fact, the shirt and jeans you are wearing right now were bought in the 1990s, the same decade you last changed your hairstyle.
Try working on looking your best at home by refreshing your hairstyle and updating your wardrobe. After all, variety is the spice of life.
There is a thrill you both will feel if you step outside your comfort zone. It doesn't matter what you do, do something different to change things up a bit.
If you eat at the same restaurants every week, try a new place. If you always go to the movies, take in a concert instead.
Have a Date Night
There is nothing wrong with finding a sitter and going on a date night on a regular basis. Even if you just go out to dinner and to a romantic spot to park and get jiggy, it is vital in maintaining your romantic connection.
Explore Common Interests
Talk with your spouse about things you would like to do, whether it’s playing disc golf, mountain biking or even wine tasting, it will be better if you did it together. And you will also be surprised at all of the things you are both eager to try.
Turn Off the Phone
You will be surprised by how much time you spend on your smartphone and other electronics. Make a conscious effort to put all of these devices away for at least an hour each day and use that time to get romantic with your spouse.
It doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to bring back romance in your marriage. Start by ordering a crystal gift for your wife.
