101 Most Romantic Things to Do and Say! (1-50)

101 Most Romantic Things to Do and Say!

First observation:  Cards and love-letters, flowers and
candy, and any type of massage seem to be universal!  Almost
everyone suggested at least one of these.  You can't go
wrong sending your honey a card, bringing flowers, or
giving him/her a backrub! We've included a few of the more
interesting variations in our list, below, but these three
showed up over and over.  It's as simple as 1-2-3 folks!

Now, for 101 other ideas.

1. When we both arrive home from work, I sit down in a
chair, inviting her onto my lap.  We sit and hold one
another for anywhere from ten seconds to a couple minutes.
We then gradually 'let go of' the trivia of the outside
day by sharing with one another.  Then, with the outside
world off our shoulders and out of our minds, we are
ready to be home together--in sync and in love.

2. Whoever gets up first, write 'I love you' with lipstick
or in the steam on the bathroom mirror.

3. During the night creep out and tie balloons on the trees
in the front garden/the garage/the front door with '......
is wonderful!' 'You light up my life!' 'You ..... are my
dream come true!' and such-like.

4. List 100 reasons why you love the person, and leave it
where they'll find it.

5. Send 20 'I love you' or friendship cards to the beloved,
and get friends to do it too, for no special occasion!
It's a special treat to go the mailbox and find 20 cards
all affirming your lover's special qualities!

6. Arrange for friends (and strangers!) to spontaneously
ring (call) your loved one and say, 'He/she wants you to know
s/he really thinks you are something special and loves you very
much.'  (It will amuse the your friends and brighten their days
too! And yes, strangers will play if you ask them right!)

7. The First Time.  Approach each day as if it is the day
that you and your spouse are together for the first time.  Be
spontaneous.  Rush to greet them at the door after a long
day and give them a big hug and kiss.  Turn off the TV and ask
them about their day.  Sometimes the most romantic thing a person
can do is give their partner their full undivided attention and
be a great listener!

8. Create a loving home.  Keep it tidy, warm, cozy and full
of fun.  Cozy furniture and soft pillows and throws invite
opportunities to snuggle up together.  Creating a mood in
your home that is relaxing and fun is often an invitation to

9. The Kiss.  Remember what it was like when you were
anticipating the first kiss from your lover? Next time your
partner reaches to kiss you, gently hold them back with your
hand while looking into their eyes.  Don't say anything,
just look deep into their eyes as they gaze back at you.
Move closer to them and with one finger, trace the shape of
their face, around the eyes, nose and then slowly over their
lips and down to their chin.  Bring their face close to yours,
slowly bring your lips to theirs, softly kissing only the
upper lip, then the lower, bring your arms around them,
slowly let the kiss grow, lips parting, until both of you
are washed away with passion.  When the kiss stops, remain in
their embrace and look deeply into their eyes again before ending
the embrace.  It doesn't matter if you have been married twenty
years, when you take the time to really kiss your partner, the
response is always the same.

10.  Take Turns.  Make the time to plan activities and take
turns doing each other's favorite things.  It's a given that you
won't enjoy everything that your partner likes to do, but if you
go with a positive attitude, you will probably end up enjoying
yourself.  If for no other reason, go for the fact that your
partner loves this activity and enjoy watching them during
the day, how much fun they have.  Next time, you will get the
same patience and excitement from them on your turn.

11. Romantic Things to Say.  I love you more today than I
did yesterday, but only half as much as I will tomorrow or, You
complete Me.  Don't forget funny sayings either, nothing is
more romantic than you and your partner laughing together,
sharing a funny story or memory.  Romance is Living,
Laughing and Loving Together.

12.  Leave early from work, take the children to the
grandparents for the evening.  Then return home and tidy up
everything so that s/he walks into a clean house.  Greet
 him/her at the door with a smile and a kiss, have their
favorite take out meal already delivered and placed on the
table with nice china and fresh flowers.  To really surprise
them, don't do this on a special occasion like an anniversary,
rather let the occasion be that you love them and were thinking
of them.

13. Take your significant other out for an ice cream cone.

14. Forget the chores and take a day trip to a nearby state
park, lake, etc.  Have a picnic, hold hands, relax together.

15. Taking a bath together and washing each others hair.
Slowly.  For a long time.

16. I think the most romantic thing one person can do for
another is to write a love letter.  Nothing beats an honest-to-God
love letter in the mailbox to make a lasting impression.  Even
couples who have lived together for years can indulge in love-letter
writing and reading.  Start with some pretty stationery or a
pretty card, then carefully choose the words that best
express your feelings.  Not sure where to begin?  How about,
'I remember the day we met...'

17. Plan a day to do just what he or she likes to do.  If he
loves sports and you hate them, buy him tickets to see his
favorite team, then go along to cheer them on to victory.
If she loves shopping and you avoid malls like the plague,
take her out for a day of shopping at her favorite store.
The idea is to do something your partner enjoys -- and enjoy
it with them!

18. Buy one or more small gifts for your beloved.  Hide them
where they'll be sure to surprise: in a coat pocket, the
glove compartment of the car, under a pillow.

19.  Have a picnic in your yard or the local park, or, if
it's cold outside, spread a blanket on your living room floor.
Indulge in all the goodies you might normally avoid: good
wine, expensive cheese, bread from the bakery, fine chocolates --
 whatever pleases your palate.

20.  Borrow your kids' bubbles and let the wind take them
away, along with your cares.

21. Make a memory book for your beloved.  Buy a photo album,
and fill it with pictures from your times together.  Include
mementos if you like, such as ticket stubs, a postcard from a
favorite vacation, matches from the restaurant where you went
on your first date. Just starting your romance together?  Take
a snapshot of the two of you, and tell your loved one there's
plenty of room for souvenirs of future adventures together.

22. Plan a surprise getaway.  Tell your beloved that you're
treating the two of you to a special getaway weekend.
Choose a place that suits your loved one  -- maybe a bed and
breakfast tucked in the woods or a four-star hotel in a big
city.  You will have to give him or her pointers about what
clothes to pack, but otherwise, your destination should remain
a mystery until your arrival.

23. If you are leaving for a couple days, make little notes
and place them around the house: On the pillow where your
significant other will place their head to sleep, or in the
refrigerator (attached to their favorite drink), or on the
towel they will dry off with.  (You can also do this if your
significant other travels.....put notes in their brief case,
their shirt or pant pocket, in with their tickets.)

24. Greet your significant other at the door, give them a
present (a nightie or silk boxers) and then have a candle
lit picnic on the living room floor.  Serve:  peel-n-eat shrimp,
cheese,  champagne,  strawberries.  Take turns feeding each

25. Take out a newspaper ad in the 'Lost and Found' section.
Have your ad state 'I've lost my heart to you' .  Have a
florist deliver a rose and a newspaper with a note what page
to turn to and have it delivered to his/her desk!
26. This one is a little on the edge........ If your
significant other travels, greet them at the airport with a
very special surprise!  The reaction is incredible and the
excitement for both of you is unbelievable!  I've welcomed
my husband in nothing but a 'teddie/nightie' under my coat
and it's my husbands favorite. Or, greet her wearing a tux,
carrying flowers, and have a limo drive you home!

27.  You both get in the car..... and you provide
directions..... turn left, turn right....  Take them to a
favorite restaurant for lunch or dinner and have flowers
or wine delivered to the table with directions to your next
destination, and then continue the mystery journey!  If you
have time, ending up at a bed and breakfast for a night of
candle lit romance is extra special! They will be thrilled
that you went to that extreme for your relationship.

28. I think this is my number one.......remember each day to
tell your significant other 'I LOVE YOU'.  There is nothing
sweeter or more romantic than hearing those words.

29. Slow dancing in the Living room to candle light.

30. A picnic in an unusual place (office floor, roof of a
building, car hood downtown, etc).

31. Your favorite romantic song left on your voice mail at
the office.

32. Almost anything handmade as a gift - for no reason.
(handmade card, scrapbook, picture frame, when you least expect it).

33.  Show respect and appreciation for you lover's family,
especially his/her mother.  You may not get along on
everything, but remember, you all love the same person!

34.  Call him/her almost everyday, just to say something
nice or thoughtful or loving.

35.  Take a bath together.  Triple the amount of skin
softener or bubble bath that you normally use.  Don't forget
the candles around the tub.
36. Get a big golf umbrella and go for a walk in the rain or
the snow.  Walk in the park, or someplace where you can enjoy
the power and wonder of nature.  Then go for a lovely hot
chocolate with some liqueur, such as Grande Marnier on the side.
Enjoy some music and the warmth.

37. Get some croissants, fresh fruit, and a special coffee
and read the Sunday paper together.

38.  Go on a Ferris wheel together at night.  If really
lucky, time it when the fireworks are exploding.

39. Spend a half hour just kissing and cuddling. Just enjoy
the moment with each other.

40.  Plan a romantic picnic at night in your favorite park.
Pack a basket with real china, crystal candle holders, tall
candle sticks and fine silver.  Prepare his/her favorite
meal and don't forget the blankets.  A nice bottle of sparkling
apple cider or champagne is a nice touch.

41.  Listen carefully to the small things that they mention
in passing that are needed and make sure they suddenly appear.
(For example, 'I really need a garlic press').  The gift is
really that you are listening.

42. Take a ride to lovers lane and PARK!!!!!!

43.  Light several fragrant candles, turn on some quiet
music and take turns giving a sensual foot, body, scalp massage.

44.  Make a date with your spouse to meet at a public place
for lunch/dinner.  When your spouse is seated ask several people
to deliver a single flower and a special love note to your
honey. You deliver the last flower with a big hug and 'I Love You.'

45.  Find a quaint inn/bed and breakfast where you can have
a cup of tea/coffee and enjoy conversation next to a roaring fire.
Retire to a room for the evening and enjoy a second honeymoon.

46.  Instead of buying a card, visit the local craft store
and purchase the materials to make your very own greeting card.
 Write a special poem or tell your special person why they
are special.  Add a picture of the two of you together.

47.  Create several coupons redeemable for friendly favors
when your sweetie just needs some attention.  For example, a foot
massage, a bubble bath with (or without) company, a quiet
dinner, help with the chores, etc. (Make sure they don't include
an expiration date.)

48. Purple Roses are rare - so is the love behind them.

49.  A love letter that includes some poems and maybe a
picture of the two of you and description of a wonderful run away

50. Satin lace pajamas!
