Plan a date night
Date nights don’t have to include fancy attire, expensive restaurants, or limo rides. You can just go to the movies; or if you prefer, stay at home, turn off your phones and be cute and playful. There are so many date night options that are completely free, which makes complete sense since this is not about money or expensive things. Instead it is about the two of you and your connection. No matter how tired you are, try to schedule a date night at least once every two weeks, and make an effort to rekindle your romance.
Give and expect nothing in return
Surprising your partner with a small gift can help you keep the spark alive. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, it just has to show that you are thinking about them even when they are not around. A bouquet of freshly picked flowers, a box of chocolates, or a book will do the trick. Ladies, consider getting a tie in his favorite color. Gentlemen, you can get her a pair of earrings with her favorite gemstone. You can even order them online, just look for more info on moonmagic.com. No matter what you decide to give your partner, expect nothing in return. The whole point of this gesture is putting a smile on their face, not throwing the ball in their court.
