A surprise can be an excellent way to reconnect with your partner while adding a little extra spark to an otherwise-typical day. Surprises are important even in relationships that are very happy; because they help you reiterate your devotion to your partner and let them know that you still consider your relationship with them a priority. A surprise is an excellent way to inject a bit of novelty, which is necessary in all relationships and gives life to the love you share.
Do More than Your Share
Whether it’s housework, dealing with the kids or a household task like shopping or taking out the trash, doing something that your partner is supposed to do is an easy and very sweet way to surprise them. When you do more than your share and give your partner a break, you’re communicating that you appreciate them and are willing to help out when you’re needed.
Serve Breakfast in Bed
Breakfast in bed is a great way to start your partner’s day off on the right foot. They’ll appreciate the fact that you took the time and effort to make them breakfast in bed and they’ll start the day feeling loved and pampered.
Leave a Love Note
Put a little note telling your partner how much they mean to you in their wallet, with their car keys or in another place they’re sure to find it.
Let Them Sleep In
Get up early and get everyone together to go out for a while, leaving your partner to snooze peacefully and wake up to a quiet house a few hours later than normal. For an extra nice surprise, put on a pot of coffee for them and leave a sweet note explaining where you’ve gone.
Plan a Night Out
Make plans to take your partner somewhere special and attend to all the details. Don’t forget to hire a babysitter and make reservations, and give them a few hours’ notice so they aren’t terribly rushed getting ready.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money or time planning a huge surprise for your partner. All it takes is a bit of forethought and a little consideration of what your partner would like best. Keeping the spark alive between you doesn’t take money and fancy outings, just a bit of care and pampering.
