If you’ve been in a relationship for a long time, you’ll know how important it is to keep the spark alive between you two. And while it was easier to do so in the beginning when you two were discovering with each other, it has become slightly difficult with the passage of time. So, what are some romantic things to do for your boyfriend that are friendly to your wallet as well?
10 Things to Do for Your Boyfriends
Surprise him with a gift
When it comes to gifts, traditionally it has always been men who have to bear the burden of gifting stuff to women. But we’ve outgrown these outdated notions, so why not give your bf a taste of equality? You’re already his gf, so you know his likes and dislikes, or better his – his wants. Go and buy him the item that he’s always had an eye out for – that cut shirt, that tool box or that new canvas he raved about when making one of his paintings. It would be even better if you gifted him a gift when it’s not his birthday – showing that you appreciate him on days outside of his birthday.
Write to him
Not a text or a DM. I mean an old fashioned letter. The advent of technology has brought about the death of many arts, including the art of letter writing. Now I’m not saying you go all out and become a poet, but you can definitely pen down your thoughts about him, right? If you suck at writing, simply googling “romantic letters examples” will give you hundreds of results to choose from. This is the kinda gift that stands out, especially if your guy’s a romantic.
Dress up like a babe
One of the cutest romantic things to do for your boyfriend is to wear your best dress, but on your best face and wear your matching set of high heels. Welcome him at the door in that attire, and who knows? One thing might lead to another and you might end up making it an unexpectedly special night for him.
Remember how fun it was when you played hooky at school? Well, bring those fun ties back! Both of you play hooky from your jobs, and use that time to go visit that new restaurant that’s opened in town, or that amusement park where you first kissed.
Put a frame on it!
Much like letter writing, the habit of clicking photos, getting them printed and putting them in frames has become a thing of the past. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s definitely something we don’t do much of any more. If your bf is the kinda guy who appreciates DIY/handmade/inexpensive stuff that holds emotional value to him, then gifting him a framed picture of you two being happy, would be one of the most romantic things to do for your boyfriend.
A body massage
Sounds like a cliché, but hey. We need to relax our minds as well as our bodies from time to time. Sleeping is fine, but take it a step ahead and give your bf a sexy body oil massage. If you don’t know where to begin or what to do, here’s a video that will help you out.
Let him have a night off
I mean, he has a rough day at the office as it is, so how about relaxing the house rules a bit and letting him have an entire night to himself? Do everything that he usually takes care of – cooking, cleaning, paying the bills, taking out the trash, etc. Let him relax, give him a cold beer and encourage him to sit like a potato in front of the TV and watch his fav show to his heart’s content.
You have to realize – sometimes the romantic things to do for your boyfriend simply by taking care of the smallest of his chores.
A spontaneous road trip
Or a planned one – whichever suits you best! It could be a long drive at night, just the two of you, singing to old songs playing on the radio. Or, if your time and budget allows you, then how about a nearby resort or bed ‘n’ breakfast to visit? Weekends might have rush or may have their prices jacked, so opt for a weekday outing.
Learn about his fav sports
Or hobby, or movie, or video game. You get the gist, right? I mean, it’s definitely more time consuming, as educating yourself on an unknown topic can be quite the daunting task. But if it’s for the guy you love, it’s definitely worth the effort. Not only will this make him a happier man, but it will also strengthen the bond he shares with you.
A boys’ night out
It’s not fun for your guy to always be devoting his time and energy to you, you know. Actually, it’s pretty selfish of you to have him wrapped around your finger like this. So how about you think about what he wants for a change? Tell him that he deserves this boys’ night out for all the hard work he’s done for you, at his job, for your relationship, or for all of the reasons mentioned just now. Cut him some slack; let him have fun with the guys. And I promise you, he’s definitely going to show his thanks to you for such romantic things to do for your boyfriend, by giving you a surprise of your own!
