Every day is the right day to spoil your sweetheart with romantic gifts, romantic dinner, or romantic gestures. People may find it hard to express their love because they are not romantic enough.

Man and woman are so different in choosing a perfect romantic gift

Whether you are married, engaged or in a relationship; that's no better way to spoil our partner by giving them a romantic yet unique gifts. Gifts do not need to be a thing or products or food; but they can also be lifetime experience such as spa pampering day, romantic getaway in a deep blue mountain, hot air balloon, or even accompanying your partner to their favourite opera show can improve your relationship into a higher level.

Women are helplessly romantic and many of them complain that their partner are not romantic enough. They feel like their men doesn't care and understand about what romance means.

While on the other hand, men also complain that their women hate the flowers & chocolate he bought. Never did they realize that their women are allergic to peanuts and the chocolate contains peanuts & the flower he bought was rose while the women only like tulips!

Therefore, to maintain a healthy relationship, men & women need to sit down together and help each other by expressing their opinions regarding the perfect romantic gift for each other. Be honest with each other and be open.

Unforgettable Romantic Gifts

So many times people are hesitant in giving gifts for their partner because of financial issue. Purchasing gift may be expensive, but with creativity, you can give romantic gift that not only cheap (or even free) but also make a lasting impression on your partner. Here are some gift ideas for you:

1. Leave early from work, have a steaming bath ready, leave a rose petal on them. Have fresh towel and her favourite sexy dress ready. Then when she is home, let her know that you have a surprise for her. Massage her on the way to the bathroom and the rest is up to you to decide.

2. Write a poem, it can be a simple poem or maybe a poem that has a lyric from their favourite song. Print it in a paper and roll it and wrap it with a ribbon. Place the paper in the bedroom or slip it inside their bag without their knowledge. It will leave a lasting impression on your partner.

3. Prepare a simple sandwich (for example cheese and ham). Prepare your favourite bubble and picnic rug. Drive or walk hand-in-hand to your favourite location (it may be your own backyard) and have a picnic there.

4. If you have a spare time and have at least image editor and slideshow editor on your computer; grab few of your favourite pictures, music and make a slideshow. Play it with your partner and see their reaction. Or if you have a device with a video camera capability, take a video of you & your partner doing silly things and fun things. It will create a lasting memory - full of fun times that you both share together. For me & my husband, we love taking pictures of each other doing silly things. And then I create a slideshow of those pictures and it always makes us laugh in the midst of the ups-and-downs we experience as a couple.

5. Create 5 or more hand-written cards. Write in each card the location in which the next card will be. For example in card 1 you can say "This is the place where I spend most of my time eating with you my love - because I don't know what life will be without you cooking yummy food for me". It will direct your partner to the dining room to find card 2, etc. And card 5 you can write "I Love you"

    I love how long and extensive your list is coming up. With Valentines day coming up it gave me lots of great ideas for my husband. For a women I really like these two necklaces from an etsy site but this one has to be my favorite. The interlocking circles are super symbolic but not to cliché. I can't link to it or its spam but the shop on Etsy is called ShibusaStudio.
