When it comes to relationships, we want to keep our romance burning and sizzling, right?! So what do you do? Well, it can be anything you want! If your SO (significant other) likes flowers, bring them flowers. If they like romantic walks by the beach, do it! There are literally tons of ideas you can do and/or make to keep that fire of desire and passion going and it DOESN’T have to be expensive!

Romance Tip #1)  Go for a romantic picnic.


Just the thought of it will make your SO delighted and possibly get them thinking romantic thoughts.  I mean who doesn’t love the idea of just the two of you, in a secluded spot, with a blanket and a basket full of food! Having a romantic picnic also shows that you have put a lot of thought into their happiness and desires.

Romance Tip #2)  Body Oils, Massage and Candlelight.


Oh my goodness! If you do a romantic night indoors, this is perfect! You can set up a room in your home with soft music, candle light and massage oils.  It really doesn’t have to cost a ton of money to do this.  Dollar store candles, some essential oils that can be bought locally, a CD playing in the background and you there to massage your SO’s body, is all you need !

Romance Tip #3)  Star Gazing.


This is a good one.  If you have a pick up or van (If you don’t, I’m sure there are friends who do that will lend you their vehicle). Load the back end up with blankets and some snacks and go to a country road. Snuggle up with each other, talk and just watch the stars.

Romance Tip #4)  Scavenger Hunt.


This is a fun, romantic thing to do.  Hand the first clue to your SO.  Then have them follow the clues from one place to the next.  You could have them do a photo one and make it romantic.  Like ,the next clue is the place we first met before we started dating, stuff like that!

Romance Tip #5)  Play Strip Scrabble or couples’ board games.


I know this may be deemed as erotic, but dang! This is your SO!  You can even add a touch of truth or dare to up the sexy element.  Let your imagination soar with the eagles!
