Be creative, thoughtful and have no expectations. Let yourself be surprised by the results you create.
Tip # 1. The morning magic moment. Could be the evening magic moment also, but not on Friday evening. At least one of you is tired and that is a romance killer. Also, have a plan to deal with the kids for a few hours or an evening at grandma's house. Have a good friend take the kids for a few hours and return the favour at a later time. Plan a little and have fun with it. Planning is fun, yes?
When the house and kitchen is a mess that is a definite distraction from romantic ideas. So maybe spring out of bed early, tidy the kitchen, take out your secret bottle of chilled champagne and blend 50-50 with orange juice (heavenly delicious). Serve it on a nicely decorated tray or plate. Visualize a romantic setting and create a little ambiance with a few candles, some romantic music. (see our music list from February 12, 2013)
Wrap up 3 chocolates and create a little handwritten note that you will attach to the Romantic Gift. Suggested wording could be "To the world's most wonderful, beautiful wife or husband. I love you. Especially when you......"
Now deliver the goods. Do they like the idea of champagne in bed? Or served at a decorated table.
Tip # 2. Super magic moment.
This is an enhanced version of Tip # 1. Deliver a note with the gift and a glass of orange juice champagne to your partner´s bed. Be a little creative with the note because when you deliver the goods it will be at another location in the house. For example, if you have a bath tub or hot tub, make a good bubble bath for them and set the rest of the champagne bottle in the bathroom. Of course a few candles is romantic and music where possible. Maybe you can pose as the waiter. With a hand towel over your arm.
Or the other location could be at a nicely set table in the kitchen complete with champagne, a lovely "cooked by you"-breakfast, with the hand towel over the arm! Remember to change your note and invite them to the right place not to the garage or the neighbours! Have fun.
Tip # 3 Get Dressed Up and Be Somebody
How about planning a dynamite homecooked meal. You can serve it with a bottle of good wine, candles , romantic music. To make it real special. Send them a written invitation saying that the dress code is "dressed up" . Men, have a shower and shave and use a little quality men's perfume. This is a quality person you will dine with. Most of all, unload the children for overnight if possible. Enjoy the meal and take a trip back to the good old days when you were in love.
Be romantic , live long and happy, Bob and Marianne.®
