Four Ways To Suprise Your Spouse
By Angela Baca
Are you looking for a special way to surprise your spouse? Have you been experiencing tough times lately in your marriage? Perhaps a personal gesture is just the thing that your honey needs to know that you care. This article offers three simple ideas for giving your spouse a meaningful token of your love.
Marriages can hit bumpy patches, especially when hard times abound at home, at work, or in the extended family. A small and unexpected gift can say the right thing at a time when your honey needs to know that your love is still a strong support system to fall back on.
The first gesture concerns the gift of a massage for your spouse or for the two of you together. This gift explains in unspoken terms how you recognize that your mate has been under a lot of stress and needs an opportunity to relax and unwind. It is also a little bit out of the ordinary when compared with typical romantic gestures like going out to dinner, or gifts of jewelry, candy, or flowers.
The second gift shifts the focus to couple time at home. Give the gift of a high quality, personal massager that the two of you can use to relieve bodily tensions. This gift is great for reducing tension in areas like the neck, the shoulders, and the back. Your gesture also shows that you are craving some close contact with your honey while trying to get through the stress of your present situation.
If you are looking for something very different, consider the idea of trying to remind your spouse of a happier time in his life. This might be a favorite time from childhood, the college years, or the early years of your relationship. A simple gift like a DVD of their favorite childhood movie or musical group is inexpensive, but shows that you thought carefully about giving the appropriate gift. What your honey may find touching is that you remembered a small, but important detail from the past and brought it back to provide comfort.
A fourth idea is to surprise your honey with a change of location for dinner. Pick him up from work and take him away from the ordinary. Try a picnic at a jazz concert or by the lake. I had a friend who had a picnic catered at the park complete with a couple of roving mexican musicians that stopped by to play a few love songs.
No matter what gift you ultimately choose, the important thing to remember is that you are surprising your spouse with a gift that is not for any specific occasion. Donít plague yourself with finding the perfect gift like people do for birthdays, Christmas, and anniversaries. The message you are sending is one of love and caring. You bought the gift just because. Who can argue with that?
