Show That Special Someone What They Mean

To You

by Maria Gracia Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Organizing Article is available. Showing your love and affection for someone doesn’t have to be overcomplicated. By putting forth a small effort, you can show someone just how much they mean to you. Here are 20 ideas to show your appreciation to your significant other (SO). 1. Do Something Thoughtful: Fix or do something to make your SO happy. Maybe it’s sweeping out the garage, cleaning up the bathrooms, making a cup of coffee, or taking action on the computer that doesn’t work, anything to make your partner happy and their life easier. 2. Listen: Engage your SO in a meaningful conversation. The best way for him/her to open up...ask an open-ended question like: Where do you see us 10 years from now?; What has made you happy lately?; or If we could take a special vacation, where would you want to go? By asking deeper questions, you’ll engage in a more meaningful and deeper level conversation. 3. Leave Your Trouble Behind: Don’t engage in negative talk like what’s bothering you at work, what you’re worried about, or any kind of gossip. 4. Dress-up for Your Partner: Put some special effort into your appearance. Maybe you apply a more romantic make-up look, pull your hair into an up-do, or have your hair and make-up professionally done. Not only will it be a treat for your partner, but it’s definitely a way to pamper yourself as well. 5. No Electronics: Turn off the television and wireless electronics and concentrate on one another. Snuggle up on the couch with your favorite beverage and listen to soft music or just talk to one another. Hint: If possible, avoid  this on a night your favorite television show or big sporting event is taking place. 6. Flirt: Sometimes little displays of affection like, little touches, kisses on the cheek, a big kiss or a wink sends a strong nonverbal message that they’re special! 7. Clothes: If you’re not one to wear over-the-top tight, sexy clothing, consider wearing something that is hug-able, like angora, silk, or velvet. 8. Romantic Home Cooked Meal: Get rid of the kids, cancel unimportant social engagements and surprise your SO with a romantic dinner. Choose foods that are known to be aphrodisiacs like: chocolate (fondue), fruits (strawberries), spicy foods, entrees with mushrooms, steak , oysters, spaghetti (think the Disney movie, The Lady and the Tramp), and wine/champagne. 9. Better Yet…Cook Together: With some soft music playing in the background, engage your partner in making dinner together. Sample each other’s food, talk, and sip a favorite beverage while creating your meal. 10. Ignite a Competition: Challenge your partner to their favorite activity…even if you’re not that great at it! Go to a shooting range and target clay ducks, play a video game, darts, bowling, favorite board game, or challenge your partner to a spinning class or a run. 11. Make a Playlist: Compile a list of your most favorite or romantic songs. Your playlist could become a timeline of music you and your SO have enjoyed over the years. 12. Dance: Slow dance to a favorite, old, slow song, even if it’s in your living room. 13. Plan a Creative Date: Skip dinner and a movie for a more adventurous date like: roller skating, ice skating, snow shoeing, touring a brewery, or playing laser tag. 14. Visit a Jazz Club or Other Unique Bar: Visit a bar or restaurant you wouldn’t normally go to. For instance, a jazz club, martini bar, or piano bar are places that may be new and exciting to you. 15. A Picture Says 1,000 Words: Pull out some pictures from a past vacation, a special event you attended, your wedding, anything to that will spark a nostalgic conversation. 16. Write a Love Letter: Handwrite a love letter to your SO and leave it on their pillow, in their briefcase, on the vanity or in the car. Here is your opening line…’ I love you because…..’. 17. Find a Funny Card: If you’re not a love-letter writer, consider purchasing a fun and hilarious card that says it all. 18. Massage: Light some candles and give your SO a foot massage, and you might also consider giving a foot massage back as well. 19. Plan an Overnighter: Take a road trip and go away for the evening. Book a hotel or Bed and Breakfast before you leave and enjoy the time away! 20. Have a Computer Date: If your SO is overseas or on a business trip, schedule a Skype call, and eat dinner together online. No interruptions. Back to Organizing Articles Index
