New relationships are always great. You spend a lot of time with each other, you go to a lot of places, eat out often and in general enjoy life. With time though, it is inevitable that this ‘honeymoon phase’ as it is also known, passes. What is important to remember is that if you are in that slump, you are certainly not alone. Plus, it is completely normal. You just need to bring back some variety and excitement, which may actually be easier than you think. Surprises always end up being awesome, made all the better when you have thought it out well. Here are a few ideas.
Fly her away
We mean by plane of course, and to an exotic destination while you are at it. She would most certainly love it. It might be a little tricky to manoeuvre since you have to work around her schedule and organise things without her smelling a rat, but it is possible so long as you are slick. You may also need to bring in some help from your peeps, so you can help keep her off track. Book tickets to a country she has always wanted to go to, and sweeten the deal by giving her edible flowers Sydney when you tell her.
Do something she has always wanted to do
For instance, if she has always wanted to try bungee jumping but you have not really had much of an interest yourself, it might be time to look past that. It would mean a whole lot to her if you made the effort, and even if you did not jump yourself, she would appreciate the gesture. It also works out better than perfumes and jewellery for instance, since you are creating memories for the both of you to look back on, which will last forever unlike material gifts.
Meet her after work
Think about how great she would feel if you met her after work (as a surprise of course), with a rose in your hand and her favourite snack food. Probably amazing. After a long, taxing day at work, it can be wonderfully refreshing to see someone you love, which can make a huge difference though a small gesture. Quite frankly, it is the little things that count. You could even arrange for a chocolate delivery at the same time for bonus points.
Breakfast in bed
You have to first make sure that she enjoy breakfast in bed, because some women do not. So unless you want your plan backfiring, best you do your research! Else this too is a lovely thing to do, especially as a surprise. It need not be her birthday or your anniversary. You could turn a perfectly ordinary day into an extraordinary one with this. And why not?
