The secret to a happy relationship is a little bit of patience, understanding and a whole lot of appreciation for all the little things that we do for each other. As clichéd as it may sound we all just want to feel appreciated and special once in awhile, which is why we would absolutely love to be swept off our feet by super sweet, romantic gestures. Here’s a list of things we truly wish our future husbands would do for us!
1. Remember the little things
We obviously expect you to do something special on our birthdays and our anniversaries. But you know what else we would love? If you remembered those special dates, the first time we met or the first time we realised we were in love - it would melt our hearts if you remembered these little things that mean so much to us. TBH, we secretly hope that you will surprise us with a big box of chocolates just to celebrate.
2. Music… the ultimate guide to romance
Mixed tapes may be a thing of the past, but we would adore it if you could create a special list of songs just for us. Songs that we both love and that mean something to us. Tracks from our favourite album or super romantic songs that set the right mood. Dear future husband, we hope you make us a playlist that we can listen to while on a long drive together or when we want to have a cosy Saturday night in! *Happy dance*
3. Flowers! Please?
Nothing says ‘I Love You’ like a bouquet of flowers. Actually, we don’t even need a full bouquet; we would be ecstatic to receive even a single stemmed flower. Because sometimes, it’s truly the thought that counts! Flowers make us super happy and you have no idea for how long the gesture will linger on in our memories and bring a smile to our face.
4. Make us laugh
As Mr. Big from Sex And The City once said - “After a while, you just want to be with the one who makes you laugh”. Being able to laugh together is what will make us special. Make us see the brighter side of things and cheer us up when we are feeling down. After all, a couple that laughs together, stays together!
5. Massage therapy
We all have days when we just feel awful, a long day at work or a fight with a co-worker - just give us a small back rub or massage our feet on days when we look super exhausted. You will earn a million brownie points! It’s such a sweet gesture - we guarantee it will make our hearts go pitter-patter.
6. Plan a trip. Please, pretty please?
We love spending time with you. Yes, we do! And what better way to spend time together than to set off on a romantic vacation. What would make it even more special - is if you planned it as a surprise for us - that would be amazing. Pick a weekend, plan a special getaway, tell us to pack our bags and whisk us off to an exotic location. *Bliss*
7. Support us no matter what
Unconditional love is important for a relationship, but so is supporting each other. Your belief and faith in us will be invaluable. Tell us that we can do it, even when we don’t believe in ourselves. Ask us difficult questions, push us to do our best and we promise to do the same for you. Let’s grow together?
8. Hug us tight
Hugs are scientifically proven to help deal with stress, it releases endorphins and helps us to calm down. So, if we are looking super stressed, just come over and give us a warm hug - it will make us feel better instantly. Actually, come and hug us whenever - it just shows us you care and that melts our hearts.
9. Romantic walks
We live in such a fast-paced world and we would love it if we could simply slow it all down for a bit. Just plan a walk in the park with us - small acts like this will let us know that you value our company and simply want to be with us. We could talk for hours at end, hold hands and soak in the beauty of nature. If you plan a cute little picnic at the end - that would totally be the icing on the cake!
10. Surprise us when we least expect it
Do something grand every once in awhile, especially when we least expect it. Take us by surprise and buy us something special! Hint: Diamonds are every girl's best friend and we would be totally floored if you gifted us some beautiful jewellery. Honestly, diamonds are perhaps the most romantic gift we can think of! Gestures like this let us know that you truly appreciate every-little-thing that we do for you and show us how important we are to you. In fact, check out this video by Ek Heera - a gift like this would truly mean the world to us. <3
