Take his commonly used scratch pad or her box of tissue
and write a sweet message on the next page or piece of tissue that will
be next to pop up. You can do this with bookmarks tucked into books
|currently being read, folded inside of the paper bills in a wallet
or purse, or any number of other places where your special someone will
soon be looking.
On the Ground
Take some branches, spare pieces
of wood, or any items out of the garage that would work to spell out "I
Love You" in the yard beneath your bedroom window. If it is wintertime,
write it in the snow. It will be so much fun to have him/her look
out the window to discover your romantic surprise.
Write an "I Love You" message on
a two pieces of paper and tape one to each side of a helium balloon.
Be sure to include his/her name on the message. Also, make sure that
the string is long enough for you to be able to get it up to the house,
office, or apartment window where it can be seen. Can you imagine
your love's delight when the floating message is discovered just outside
Mirror, On the Wall
Both lip stick and dry erase markers
work on mirrors, car windshields, and house windows. Use one of these
places to leave a love message as a happy surprise for the one you love.
Sadie Hawkins Date
The Lil' Abner comic strip featured
a "Sadie Hawkins Day" where the ladies invited the men out for a date,
made all of the plans, covered all of the costs, and even brought their
men candy and flowers. Gals, why not treat your guy to a special
date where you do it all. Of course, you could also agree with him
that next time, well, he does it all. Fair enough?
Buy a bag of multi-colored plastic
eggs and fill them with chocolate candy kisses or anything else that he/she
would like. Place a note in each one that says, "I love you" in a
different way. Hide them all over the place and let your love enjoy
a Lovegg Hunt.
in a Wine Bottle
Save an empty wine bottle so that
the next time your sweetheart is taking a bath you can place a love note
inside the bottle, cork it, and let it float in the bath tub before they
get in to it or the sink before they get out of the shower.
Full of Kisses
Gals, put on the brightest red lipstick
you can find and, before he wakes up in the morning, kiss him all over
his face. Then, when he gets up, tell him to go look in the mirror
to see all of those little kisses.
Cut colored paper in strips, write one line of a love
note, curve it around so that one end meets the other and tape the two
ends together. Write another line of your love note on a second piece
of different colored paper and link it to the first one. Continue
writing your note until you have as long a chain as possible. What
Own Special Holiday
Agree together that on a certain date every year (not
counting your wedding anniversary) you will have your own special holiday.
Make up a name for it that is unique to the two of you and decide what
traditions you are going to include in it (e.g. gifts, trip, evening out,
Full of Balloons
Buy a large package of multi-colored balloons. Blow
all of them up so that they cover up whichever room in the house you decide
to use (suggestion: the bedroom). You might need some help from a
friend so that you don't end up with collapsed lungs. There's nothing
more festive or fun looking than a room filled with happy bouncing balloons.
No Expense Night
Take your love out to the fanciest
restaurant you can find. If it is a dinner theater or has a piano
bar, then all the better. Let him/her feel free to order anything
off of the menu and then order dessert afterwards. Of course, it
would be even more romantic if you were to reserve that perfect table for
two ahead of time by actually going to the restaurant a few days before
to make whatever arrangements would be necessary.
According to our romance polls,
snuggling up on the sofa and watching a movie together is everyone's favorite
idea of a sweet, romantic evening. Find out which movie he/she would
like to see, rent it, and perhaps you might even order out that night so
no one has to fuss with cooking dinner. Of course, a nice foot or
back rub while watching the movie always helps, too.
Take your camera with you the next time the two of you
go out together. Of course, don't let him/her know that you brought
it with you. When your mate is not looking, ask someone to snap a
picture of the two of you at just the right moment. Go back and surprise
your guy/gal with a really nice kiss while the flash goes off--preserved
forever as one more piece of evidence that you really do love each other.
to the Nines
Tell your special someone that you will be fixing a special
dinner in for the evening. Dress up in your sexiest outfit.
Then, when it's time for the meal to begin, serve peanut butter sandwiches,
pretzels, milk. While he/she is looking puzzled, say, "Well, I wasn't
really hungry, anyhow. Why don't we just skip all this and have some
dessert." You can figure out what to do from there, can't you?
