When you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you’ll do anything to make them happy. And although grand gestures and expensive gifts might be fun and put a smile on your partner’s face, the truth is that you don’t need to spend much money when you are looking for a way to say ‘I love you’. Below, we’ve put together some ideas for you to try.
Organize a date night
Not spending as much time together as you’d like? Go back to the good old days and plan a date night, where you visit a restaurant and then go see a movie or take a stroll along the harbor. There are so many options to consider and you can do it without spending a penny if you organize a picnic in the park. Simply making the effort and showing your partner just how much she means to you will give you brownie points, and help create lasting memories.
Buy her some jewelry
If you want to give your partner a physical token of your love and appreciation, consider a piece of jewelry. From a customized ring to a Celtic cross necklace that means something special to her, there are endless options to consider online. Do your research, sneakily look for her ring size or speak to her friends and family for advice, and choose something you know she’ll love. If all else fails, a gift voucher will mean she can pick her own favorite piece.
Send a good morning text
Nowadays, it’s easy to get lost in the stress of the 9-5 grind and forget to show your partner that you’re thinking of them when you leave the house. Whether you’re living together or you are yet to make the leap, consider sending a cute morning message to your loved one and tell them that they’re on your mind. Keeping in touch throughout the day is also a great way to build a relationship – let them know what you’re having for lunch and your plans for dinner.
Give her a “boyfriend voucher”
Do you find yourself arguing with your partner about what to get up to on a weekend? One way to show her that she’s your top priority is to create a boyfriend voucher that she can trade in when she wants something in particular. For example, if you’re not a fan of going to museums but your partner is an avid art fan, she can trade in the voucher when you’re next planning a day trip, and choose all of the activities without any complaints from you. Hey, it can be fun and means she has total control – you might end up trying something you enjoy.
Finally, find some way of surprising your girlfriend. We all love to be treated like a princess, so come up with a unique way to put a smile on her face. From organizing a secret day trip that she doesn’t know about to sprinkling petals on her pillow with some chocolates to eat, you can make a real impact for a couple of dollars. It’s ultimately the thought that counts!
