When you are in a committed relationship, it can become difficult to keep things fresh and new over time. Sometimes the smallest acts of kindness or thoughtfulness are enough to rejuvenate a relationship and to keep your partner satisfied. By going the extra mile and presenting a little surprise or a kind deed on date night is an easy way to prove that you care about your partner and always will. Below are five easy things you can do to surprise your wife or girlfriend on date night:
Get a haircut
One easy way to surprise your significant other is through a haircut. This is a simple gesture that shows that you care about the way you look and present yourself. It is a small act but can make a massive difference in the way that your partner perceives you! It’s especially meaningful if you get a haircut in a style or fashion that you know your partner likes. It shows that you take the time to remember what she says and feels, and that their opinion matters.
Do the house chores
For most working women, it can be challenging to find the motivation to do household chores after a long day at work. Small things like doing the dishes or cooking dinner can make a huge difference to your significant other. Many women are pleasantly surprised when their boyfriend helps out in unexpected ways and they almost always show them appreciation for their work. Not only that, but according to CNN Health doing chores can be an emotionally bonding experience that will make your partner feel valued.
Dress to Impress
A dashing smile is something that will impress any lady. According to Crimson Ridge Dentistry, “whitening is an ideal procedure for anyone wanting immediate results.” There are many options available if you’re thinking of doing teeth whitening. At-home whitening kits are a cheaper option, but their results aren’t as apparent or immediate. Professional whitening has near immediate results and will always leave you satisfied, but is a little more expensive than at home procedures.
Dressing well for any planned activity is impressive. If your date night is a nice dinner, wear a nice, tailored suit with the proper leather accessories like a belt. If you have a more athletic date night in mind, wear a nice polo shirt or fitted t-shirt with a nice pair of sweats or shorts. Choose colors that compliment your complexion and features. If you do it right, she won't be able to keep her eyes off of you.
Play up the nostalgia
A simple suggestion is when you go out, wear the outfit or even just the shirt that you wore on your first date. You can also recreate the first meal that you had together. Maybe go to the same restaurant, or whatever activity you did on your first date. Get creative, and generate some nostalgia! From Care2, “Don’t just reminisce about the details of the first date—where were you living during that time in your life? What kind of job did you have? Were you happy? What was your favorite hobby?” Going through how much you’ve changed and grown closer to each other is a wonderful way to reignite your relationship.
Have a plan
Whether you do any of these suggestions or do something out of the ordinary on your own, having a plan is key. It shows your partner that you care and appreciate them enough to make a difference in their life. Come home with flowers (that you pick or bought) or concert tickets, and I bet you will see your partner's face light up. Just be sure that your partner knows what they might need to prepare. One thing you can do is to suggest what type of outfit she should wear, or even gift her one. While that might seem intimidating, there are plenty outfits that are versatile enough to look dressy and feel comfortable for whatever adventure planned. One example is the maxi dress, which can be paired with all sorts of accessories and shoes, and still is usually made out of stretch cotton for movement. Women typically don’t want to be caught off-guard somewhere where they don’t feel like they’ve dressed up enough for. While you might want to keep your date and plans a completely surprise, you don’t want to make them uncomfortable.
Any of these five small surprises are a fantastic way to show that you care. Many times, people in committed relationships get easily consumed with the day-to-day; it can be easy to sweat the small stuff. Take a step back and put in the extra effort on your next date night. It will likely make a huge difference to your partner, and you will notice the gratitude and appreciation!If you’re wondering about our products and have some questions about how we can help you and your hair, make sure to spend some time in our FAQs section!
