Love is in the air! The basic “I love you” roses and a card is nice but not the only way you can show love. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be a little too easy to fall into a rut, and to even mistake it for routine! Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to show your love, keep the romance alive and make your beloved feel special. Show your significant other how much you love and care for them with these ten simple gestures.

1. Hold Hands

Yes, something as simple as this shows love! Hold your partner’s hand in private or in public. It shows the person you’re with and the world that you love each other!


2. Take Them Out

Everyone likes to be wined and dined! Set aside date nights and express your love and affection.


3. Date In

Every date does not have to be outside of the house. Set up a nice indoor picnic with some wine and your partner’s favorite movie for a perfect “Netflix and Chill” date in the house.


4. Make Them A Priority

Tell your friends you are busy and spend some quality time with your bae. Nothing says I want to be with you more than your significant other choosing you over their friends.


5. Get Creative

Dates don’t always have to be dinner and a movie. Try something different like a concert or going on a scenic hike or simply cook a meal together to enjoy!


6. Connect

Sharing your hopes and dreams with someone is powerful and personal. This shows that you trust and love your partner and want them to be a part of your life goals.


7. Unplug

Focus on your loved one and not your phone. If you love that person it shouldn’t be hard to give them your attention while you are together.


8. Words of Appreciation

Tell your partner how you appreciate all of the little things they do. Let them know nothing goes unnoticed and how it means a lot to you.


9. Let Them Know They Are Missed

Send a text telling your loved one that you are thinking of them. They will feel so special seeing that they were on your mind.


10. Make Their Favorite Meal

Surprise your loved one by cooking dinner. Keep it cute and simple with some candles, flowers, and a bottle of wine. All of the effort you put into this will be greatly appreciated.
