There are many ways you can show your spouse just how much you love them with simples steps and activities for essentially no cost or a low cost. The spark can sometimes dim as we are in our relationships for longer periods of time. There are unlimited possibilities for making your spouse feel loved and adored. Due to the fact that my husband travels extensively for his job, we have both learned how to make the most of our time together.
One of my favorite things to do is to wake my husband up with the smell of his favorite breakfast. Even if you are aren’t a great cook you can head out for a sweet treat for that special someone. Maybe it’s a cup of coffee that gets your spouse moving in the morning, try serving it to them in bed. This is such a simple idea but it will receive a great response.
Help your spouse start the day off right, lay out their clothes for them. This shows love on your part by taking the time to care enough to lay out their clothes. For those who are fashionably challenged you may want to skip this one!
Give your spouse a sensual massage either at the beginning or the end of the day. You can use oils, lotion or hand held massager’s. This will help your loved one wake up in a great mood or fall asleep to your soothing touch.
Surprise your honey with a clean car! This sounds trivial but this is something that we often take for granted. I try to clean my husband’s car out when he is home because he never has time to do it. The small touches like spraying a subtle air freshener and removing all the trash will make your spouse smile when they are heading back to work.
Offer to run your spouse’s errands for them while they sleep in.
Plan a date night with your spouse, if you have a crazy schedule you may need to be flexible as to when you have date night. You can take your spouse out to a dinner with all the bells and whistles. Choose a quiet and romantic restaurant that you both enjoy or that you have heard great things about. In some cases you will want to make reservations. If this isn’t in your budget, plan a multiple course meal at home, with appetizers, salad or soup, the main course and of course dessert. To spice things up you can serve it in a sexy outfit that you normally wouldn’t wear and get the night off to a sizzling start.
Tuck your lover in and have pillow talk until you both fall asleep. Conversation is seemingly becoming a lost art, and the intimacy of lying with someone you love cannot be replaced with any greater pleasure.
Run a hot bath for your spouse at the end of the day, use rose petals to add a fragrant aroma to the bathroom, and candles for lighting and ambiance. You can also play soft and seductive music in the background to set the mood. Lead your lover to the bath and treat them like royalty, slowly undress them and help them into the tub. Before you know it you will be having a great time if you let your inhibitions and guard down.
Make the day all about your spouse, pampering and adoring them. Find out what they want to do for the day even if it is staying in bed all day and night, or planning a romantic drive to the mountains for a picnic in the rain.
