Romance isn’t everything in marriage, but it sure is essential.
Flowers, cards and romantic dinners are all wonderful, but they can seem a bit stale after a while. Nothing sparks up the romance or brings sparks into the bedroom like using a little creativity. Of course, men and women are different and what strikes a woman as a perfect romantic gesture may do almost nothing for her husband.
We recently found a great article from Reader’s Digest called “40 Creative Romantic Ideas.” It has some great romantic ideas for everyone, but we’d like to share our three favorites for the man in your life. Next time, we’ll give women their due.
Creative Romantic Ideas Just for For Him
- Give him a Victoria’s Secret or other lingerie catalog. Attach a gift card and a note that says, “You choose.” Guaranteed that whatever comes in the mail, it’ll be a winner with him.
- Give him a “World’s Best Lover” trophy. All men want to believe that they’re wonderful lovers. Most men are also very achievement-oriented creatures. Trophy shops have a wide selection of inexpensive trophies and plaques that can be engraved very inexpensively. Give him this gift and we guarantee he’ll be trying to prove it true for some time.
- Unplug the TV and attach a note to the front that says, “Turn me on instead.” A challenge few men can resist.
