You and your partner have been a couple for a long time, but the relationship has succumbed to the daily routine? Then surprise your partner, make him or her happy and stimulate your partnership again.
You don't have to spend a lot of money, nor does the surprise for your partner have to be particularly unusual. It is important that you have thought about what your partner might like: What are his or her hobbies, what does he or she like to eat and drink, does he or she enjoy sports or is he or she also available for spontaneous outings?
Either way, it is time to think about it. Write down a short list of things and qualities that make your partner special. This not only makes it easier for you to surprise your partner, it will also make it much easier for you to find surprises in the future.
Of course, the classic dinner date with your favourite meal by candlelight is always a good idea, even if not particularly special. However, you could change your meal together to surprise your friend - how about inviting your husband to prepare your dinner? Even if he's not the best cook and doesn't really enjoy kitchen chores, you can definitely lure him into your kitchen with the surprise of creating a burger or pizza just the way he wanted it. To round things off, you can conjure up a delicious dessert after the main course in a joint team effort.
Create an album
A self-made photo album that's suddenly on the living room table is a sweet surprise for your partner! Get yourself a nice book first (you don't necessarily have to do this yourself, see below). Then you fill it with nice memories of your relationship, always write a few lines about the moments and events and add some photos or even mementos.
Say it with flowers
"Flowers are the language of love". And they still count as a sign of appreciation, recognition and, of course, love. So, if you surprise your partner with flowers, it is by no means cheesy or old-fashioned.
