It can be difficult to express how much you love your other half in words, which is why you should aim to show them via your actions. In addition to being affectionate, there are steps you can take to make your spouse feel both loved and appreciated each day.

If you want to inject some romance into your relationship and make them fall in love with you that little bit more, you should read the following advice on how to sweep your other half off their feet.

Cook Their Favorite Meal

If you want to reach your spouse’s heart, you might need to go through their stomach. After all, everyone loves a delicious dish, which can be even more memorable when it is cooked and served by their partner.

If you want to thank your significant other for being a special part of your life, you should whip up their favorite dish in the kitchen. Don’t forget to turn the lights down low, burn some candles and prep the table to enjoy a memorable evening of good food and conversation. You can guarantee they will appreciate the level of hard work and effort it has taken to create a romantic recipe.

Buy Tickets to an Event

Prove to your spouse just how much you love them by buying tickets to an event that taps into their passions. For example, if your other half is a big football fan, they will be likely looking forward to the start of the new NFL season. Rather than watching it at home, aim to secure tickets for an upcoming game for your favorite team. You could even make the game a little more interesting by going head-to-head and placing a wager on the straight-up winner or the side-to-side win against a point spread. It will add a little friendly rivalry into the event, which you’ll both be debating on the drive home from your fun date.

Treat Them to an Unexpected Gift

You don’t need to wait for your spouse’s birthday or Christmas to spoil them. Make them feel loved by surprising them with an unexpected gift, which will make him or her smile from ear-to-ear. You also don’t need to break the bank to treat them to a thoughtful present, as you could bake them a batch of cookies, buy a book you think they will like, or present them with a stunning bouquet of flowers.

Write Cute Notes

Constantly surprise your partner by writing romantic or cheeky notes, which you should leave in random places for them to find, such as in their jacket, on the fridge, in their work bag, or on a bathroom mirror. It is bound to bring a smile to their face each time they find a note and they will be touched by the romantic, handwritten gesture.

Plan a Romantic Getaway

Nothing says “I love you” quite like a romantic getaway. Tell your partner to clear their schedule before whisking them away to a stunning destination or a luxury hotel, which will allow you both to spend some quality time together. It will prove to your spouse just how much they mean to you, and it will ensure you both come away from the trip filled with many memories, which could make your relationship even stronger.


Articulating how you feel about your other half can be no easy feat, as there might not be enough words to express how much they mean to you. If you want to make your significant other fall in love with you that little bit more, you should aim to sweep him or her off their feet. So buy them tickets to an upcoming event they will love, serve their favorite dish or whisk them away for a romantic break they are unlikely to forget. Small acts could make a big difference to your relationship.
