Gnoments | Plan the Perfect Spring Break Getaway

Relationships

Love is in the air as spring brings everything into bloom, including your romance! The days are getting longer, the sun is shining brighter and it’s the perfect time of year to take your together time outside to flourish in the twitterpated excitement spring brings.

Its picnics, bike rides, and weekend road trips. You don’t even have to go that far to feel like you are outside of your normal routine, and a spring break road trip is a romantic road to be traveled together! Let Gnoments and our Gnomes help you plan a weekend getaway! It’s a cinch and with a few simple suggestions from Gnoments, you can be well on your way this weekend.

First you should pick a location that won’t take all day to get to, but that will also feel like you are far enough away that the normalcy of your day to day routine together is forgotten. A few of our top suggestions would be:

  • Camping
  • Wine Tasting
  • A cozy hidden B&B
  • A Resort meant for pampering
  • A weekend Cruse
  • The nearest Beach, or closest and biggest body of water be it a Lake, River, or Creek
  • Book a flight for some place overnight, Spring Break also means airline deals
  • Turn off your phones, close the blinds, draw a bath, crack open the champagne and make your home its own little get away for the weekend

Secondly you should make a checklist for your sweetheart so they can prepare for the trip without needing all the details. The element of surprise makes a getaway all the more thrilling, and with Gnoments NFC programmable chip you can easily create a checklist that can be reviewed on an Android phone or even placed in the Gnomes back pocket pouch. Don’t forget the little, but necessary, details like a swimsuit, hiking shoes, a hat, or a nice outfit for a fancy dinner.

Lastly, you should make your move and just go for it! Set up your Gnomes for the big surprise, or send your sweetheart a Gnomification that will put a fun twist to a seemingly ordinary day at work. Romance isn’t always about strategically planned time together. The best memories are sometimes made when you just wing it!  Pick a place and enjoy the journey as much as the destination. No matter what you do, spring brings the promise of a budding new romantic relationship, even if it’s the same one you’ve been in for years. With Gnoments, making love fun is as simple as dreaming up your next adventure together. Be it a movie night in or a trip across the state, Gnoments and our Gnomes just want to see you both making more time to cultivate your love. Doesn’t that sound lovely indeed?!

So, what are you waiting for?  A goodtime awaits you and your sweetheart!

Love truly is more fun with Gnoments.

6 Things To Be Honest About In Your Relationship //

Relationship Advice

When you first start dating someone it’s natural to want to put your best foot forward.  We all do it. In the beginning stages it’s all too easy to be eager to please. We find ourselves getting dressed up, being open to new situations, and perhaps even letting small things slide that trigger red flags. Some of your concerns will get ironed out with time, and as your relationship grows you begin to grow together. It’s all part of the beautiful evolution of love!

After your relationship has settled into a comfortable state of love, it’s important to keep in mind that the success of your relationship is built on a foundation of truth and trust. We may be all smiles in the beginning even when it comes to things that might be out of our norm, but as time passes these little things could turn into bigger problems if you don’t maintain a clear line of communication.

There are a few things to always be honest about in your relationship that will give you both a sense of individual presence. As your lives merge it gets even more essential to be honest and honesty in the end will keep you both happy and hopeful.

  1. What Makes You Happy

If you want a partner that tends to your needs then it’s important to be honest about the things that make you happy. In a world filled with so many endless possibilities for happiness, it’s essential that your individual needs are known by your partner. This allows them to be able to feel good about making you happy, and also allows you both to have mutual respect for each other’s happiness.

  1. Plans for the Future

In order to grow together, you must both build a world that you can see yourselves living in. This means moving in the same direction together even if perhaps your plans vary a little. There are some future plans that can dictate the success of a relationship so it’s imperative that as you grow and your plans get bigger that you both have open and honest communication about the life you dream of.

  1. Sex

As sex is an important part of any loving relationship, it’s necessary to make sure you both are happy. It’s healthy to have conversations about likes, dislikes and fantasies. It benefits no one to fake anything in this department, and in many if not most cases, practice makes perfect. An open conversation brings satisfaction to both parties and also keeps things exciting and fun.

  1. Being Upset

Don’t say you’re happy when you’re not. We all know that “I’m fine” rarely means just that.

It’s not okay to fly off the handle every time you get rubbed the wrong way. However, you should never fake a smile. This will only confuse your partner and leave room for more error in the future. You partner doesn’t want to make you unhappy but they can’t fix the issues if your key phrase to being upset is “It’s fine”. Be as honest as you can, and have a conversation when you’re feeling less emotional, about why you were upset and your feelings on that situation. It’s also helpful to have a few suggestions for correcting future discrepancies. Keep in mind that your partner has the right to weigh in on their feelings and sometimes a compromise will have to take place.

  1. Finances

If your relationship is mature, and you’re both financially tied to each other in some way then it’s really important to be honest about anything that could affect your standard of living. It’s also really vital to be honest about the little spending habits that you simply refuse to cut out of the budget. There are very few things that can break up a lasting relationship quicker than money problems. Problems are just obstacles to overcome when there is open conversation and team effect in execution. If you need your Starbucks everyday then be honest about that and you can both budget according to the things you desire, within reason of course. It’s also a great way for you both to set future goals, and strive for success together.

  1. All the Good Stuff

The most important thing to never be quiet about in a relationship is ALL the good things you think about each other and your life together. It’s easy to get wrapped up in life and assume your partner knows just what you are thinking, but we already know mind readers are a rarity. So, when you feel those sweet and kind feelings start to stir, say them out loud. Say I love you often, remind your partner how attractive you find them, thank each other for things both big and small, and most of all build your relationship on all the “good stuff”. It’s amazing how addicting it is to make the one you love happy! The more you praise each other, the more you both strive to keep that feeling alive.

Celebrating all the good stuff is exactly what Gnoments is about! When romance begins to slip, Gnoments and our Gnomes have been designed to help create that excitement, and thoughtfulness, that shows the love of your life that you care.  Your gestures don’t have to be elaborate, complicated, or cost any money. It’s the thoughtfulness that creates the romance, it shows that you care.

Your Gnoments Gnomes sit in their special spot and cannot wait to be used. All you have to do to begin is pick one up and play. Their magnetic hands always bring them back to each other and their cute playful presence grabs your attention as a daily reminder that’s hard to ignore. No matter what you’re trying to convey, be it an apology, a sexy tip for the bedroom, or an affordable date night surprise, Gnoments and our Gnomes can help.

Creating fun and thoughtful moments for the one you love is easy, especially when your love is resilient in an open and honest relationship. Love is more fun with Gnoments!

The Difference Between Men & Women | How Gnoments Can Help Bridge the Gap

The-Difference-Between-Men-and-Women

Men may be from Mar and Women from Venus, but there is still the common understood language that both men and women speak when it comes to romance and love. Generally speaking women seek the prolonged gratification of deep intimacy and the validation of sweet gestures and heartfelt time together. Men on the flip side generally tend to desire a more instant rush and gain lasting satisfaction from the idea of reaping the benefits that please his partner. In the middle both men and women meet to come together to create a relationship of give and take where ultimately the desire, for a happy and loving union, is the same.

While the distance between men and woman may seem vast, they are relatively simple when you break it down. Gnoments provides the perfect barrier breaker when it comes to bridging the gap!

Men are givers, and get pleasure in their partner’s enjoyment. Men like to feel like men, and of course need to feel appreciated and respected. As a man, you want to please your partner and you want your lady to recognize everything you have to offer. Men love to give, but often times require communication from their lady to know what needs need tending to. The Gnoments Gnomes offer the perfect combination as a tool of communication, and as a loving reminder of understanding her need for connection. Gnoments Gnomes can serve as a way to say thank you when she comes home to find your Gnome sitting next flowers. You can send a Gnomification love letter to remind your lady she is the apple of your eye, or program her Gnomes NFC chip with the menu for her favorite restaurant and a time in which to meet you there. Remember that to a woman connection and communication are essential. When you use Gnoments you are showing her that you wish to connect either through making time to spend together, or of sending her your thoughts of love. As a man having the Gnoments Gnomes sitting on your shelf will call to action your manly urges to please your lady, and perhaps garner a little pleasure in return. (Gnome wink wink)

Women are nurturers, and develop connection through understanding, communication, and feeling appreciated and respected.  As a woman you want to tend to your man, and have him truly understand your needs for affection as a woman. Women want to make their men feel special, but often times assume men speak the same language as women do. The Gnoments Gnomes are a great outlet for helping your man to understand what your needs are. The Gnomes offer up the perfect opportunity to create special moments between the two of you that will prompt a response of reciprocation. Keep in mind that to a man making you happy and fulfilling your needs is part of his hardwiring. The more he feels appreciated the more his will be willing to go out of his way to give you what you want. Gnoments Gnomes can be used as a sensual way to seduce you man. You can send a Gnomification with a picture meant for only his eyes, place a Gnome in the refrigerator with an “I appreciate you” note and a packed lunch, or program his gnomes NFC chip to surprise him with a map that leads to massages for two. As a woman your Gnoments Gnomes will center your attention to nurturing your relationship into what you wish it to be. If you lead by example, you are sure in time to watch your man take the lead.

Gnoments and their Gnomes help you embrace the differences that are natural between men and women, and help you find fun and thoughtful ways to create moments together. When we realize our differences aren’t all that different, love and romance can thrive. Try Gnoments out for yourselves and see what we mean!

Gnome matter how you choose to spend your time together, what really matters is that you do.

Gnoments is here to help you accomplish you relationship goals and keep the romance alive and active. Gnoments are a tangible outlet that reminds you to do special things for each other, no matter big or small. They are symbolic to the purpose they serve. Their magnetic hands always bring them back to each other and their cute playful presence grabs your attention as a daily reminder that’s hard to ignore. Whether you send a Gnomification through our website, plant the gnome with a special note, or use the embedded NFC chip to program a special message for your honey, as the recipient you feel special to find a thoughtful gnome waiting for you. Romance is about fun, excitement, and all the little things that make up the beautiful story of your love. Gnoments simply serves as an outlet in which you can start creating more moments to add to your story.

10 Reasons Why Your Realtionship Needs Gnoments

Gnoments2

We may be slightly bias when it comes to Gnoments and our sweet little bearded and braided Gnomes. However, we have an inkling that you too feel your heart strings being tugged at the thought of having a fun new outlet for creating thoughtful moments with the one you love. Not only are the Gnoments Gnomes adorable, but they also serve a rather romantic purpose of keeping your love life on the to-do list.

For most of us in relationships, thriving through all the chaos of life, we tend to start questioning “what time is there for Romance?” There is no question that you and your sweetheart have an abundance of love in your relationship, but it may be a shared idea that there isn’t enough time for romance with everything that gets in the way. We generally take the time to make everyone else in our lives feel special, but often short change our romantic relationship. Gnoments and our Gnomes are here to put an end to the school of thought that romance is dead. It is alive, well, and waiting for you this very moment!

We’ve talked it over with our Gnomes and here are 10 very simple and very true reasons that you need Gnoments in your life:

1. You deserve romance.
There is nothing wrong with putting you first. When you dedicate time to yourself and the things that matter most, like your love life, everything else reaps the benefits of the balance you have created for yourself.

2. Love makes the world go round.
Love makes everything seem possible, even the daily conundrums of life. When you fill your love tank, you can travel the distance. A life without love is no life at all. Gnoments helps you declare your love, because your world spins together with your babe, and oh what a beautiful life it is.

3. Seeing your sweetheart smile.
Is there anything better than that smile? We know it still melts your heart! Make your partner smile dreamy smiles that are dedicated just for you, because of you.

4. We all need a friendly reminder.
You will never forget to make time for thoughtfulness with the adorable bearded and braided gnomes in your home. Gnoments Gnomes in their red hats serve as the pink elephant in the room. They are hard to ignore and they will prompt the necessary reminder to stop, and take a Gnoment to create a moment.

5. Reciprocation.
You made your partner smile, which truthfully is a reward into itself. However, love and thoughtfulness come full circle. The more you give, the more you get. Think about how exciting it will be to see a missing Gnome and know it’s your turn to play. Oh the thrill, we can hardly wait for you!
6. Gnomes are great with kids.
While the Gnomes serve as a romantic reminder, Gnomes sure have a magical way with kids as well. Entice the kids to invite your Gnomes to join them on a task of surprising mom and dad with a clean room, or a special picture painted by loving hands. Gnoments will surely be a fun incentive for cooperation and happy homes. We hear Gnomes, like all magical creatures, know Santa, the tooth fairy, and give mom and dad a good deeds report at the end of each day. If getting your kids excited about cleaning their room isn’t magic, then gnomes don’t exist.

7. Gnoments is fun.
Think about all the new fun and exciting ways that you can enchant your lover with the Gnoments Gnomes. The possibilities are endless! Gnoments Gnomes have a high-tech NFC technology, back pouches for notes and trinkets, and you can even send Gnomifictions through our website directly to an email address or phone. Your Gnomes are not limited to just your pair, you can play with other couples who use Gnomes too. Don’t worry, if you need help getting the toadstool rolling, Gnoments.com has lots of ideas for how to use your Gnomes!

8. Reprogram you romance radar.
Like any habit, it takes time to form and repetition to stick. Gnoments Gnomes are a smaller less furry version of Pavlov’s law. With time you will develop new romantic habits that are instinctual and don’t take much conscious effort to generate. That is the ultimate goal of Gnoments and nothing pleases our Gnomes more than to be an afterthought to a romantic surprise!

9. Communication regeneration.
Communication is key and Gnoments is the great communicator. Sometimes it may be easier to let the Gnomes do the talking. If you want to ask someone out on a date, apologize, or leave early for work and want your sleeping beauty to wake up to something thoughtful, the Gnoments Gnomes can solve all those issues for you. They are ever so happy in fact to be your wing-man, or wing-gnome as would be more fitting.

10. Bring back the butterflies.
Gnomes like to garden and want to help your romance bloom. With a little help from Gnoments you can plant the seeds of romance that let your love blossom. Butterflies follow the flowers, bring back the butterflies! We love the way they tummy tickle.

When romance begins to slip, Gnoments and our Gnomes have been designed to help create that excitement, and thoughtfulness, that shows the love of your life that you care. Your gestures don’t have to be elaborate, complicated, or cost any money. It’s the thoughtfulness that creates the romance, it shows that you care.

Your Gnoments Gnomes sit in their special spot and cannot wait to be used. All you have to go to begin is pick one up and play. No matter how much time you have to dedicate to your gesture, the Gnoments Gnomes will amplify your kindness and remind your snookums just what they mean to you!
Gnome matter how you choose to spend your time together, what really matters is that you do.
Gnoments is here to help you accomplish you relationship goals and keep the romance alive and active.

The Life Cycle of Romance & Love | How Gnoments Can Keep Your Relationship Young

 

Romance & Love

Romance
noun |( rō-măns′, rō′măns′)
a. A love affair
b. Ardent emotional attachment or involvement between people; love
c. A strong, sometimes short-lived attachment, fascination, or enthusiasm for something

This seemingly little word packs powerful meaning and affects every human alive in one way or another. Romance has the ability to change our lives, manifest dreams, break our hearts, make us sick, and if we are lucky and work at it, last forever.

True romance is tied up in love and makes you want to do special and unexpected things for the one who has your heart. True romance is making an effort to show the person you love that you are thinking of them, care for them, and want them as a part of your daily life. Romance isn’t forced or even necessarily complicated, but sometimes it does take work. It’s important to remember that the sweet and simple things that make you fall in love in the first place, have just as important a role in the beginning as it does 50 years down the line. Gnoments was created to assist you & your sweetheart in keeping your true romance alive no matter what chapter of your love story you are in.

The life cycle of romance, while completely individual and bearing its own special story, shares its phases with much like anything else in life.

In The Beginning There Are Butterflies.
The beginning of a new budding relationship is always exciting! In the beginning emotions run high, the heartstrings sing, and there are butterflies aflutter. As a couple you begin creating a series of firsts together that you will never stop smiling about. It’s the heart racing, stomach flips, stolen kisses, and long glances phase. You are getting sucked into the whirlwind of falling in love. Your partner can do no wrong and no amount of time is ever too much. All the normalcies in your life take a bench while you chase after those butterflies. It’s so special, so magical, and each couple only gets this phase once, so living in it for as long as possible is exactly what should be done. Romance is alive and seems to have no end in sight!

In this early exhilarating stage of romance, introducing Gnoments can be especially fun and playful. As you are all too eager to please each other, the surprise element of little bearded and braided gnomes spontaneously appearing in your romance adds quirky fun to an already flourishing romance. The fun of finding a gnome in the home, with a pre-programmed message for a romantic occasion for two will keep the heart beats racing in anticipation for the next gnome sighting. It will surely become a game of romantic wits, and entice new ways to up the Gnoment seduction for the one you love.
Progression is natural, necessary, and another fun part in the growth of a relationship.
The Comfort Phase Comes Knocking.
As you settle into your relationship you begin to grow comfortable. Slowly you slip into a realm where you can let loose, and you begin to build a routine around one another where your lives merge into one. You begin to let your life back in, and can do more things apart. A new set of firsts begin that invoke strengthening growth between you and your partner.

You are still in the early stages of love, and while you may be settling in, the desire to please your partner is still strong. You now know each other’s routines, likes, and turn-ons, so creating romance has become easier and in many ways more fun. Your Gnoments can be a symbolic part of the passion and pleasure that remains resilient. Your Gnomes have NFC technology that will allow you to link to maps for surprise dinners, and a back pouch for more personal messages. You could plan dinner, with a suggestive dessert back home. Now that is a dinner date to anxiously anticipate! Part of the fun of using the Gnoment Gnomes is reciprocation – the Gnoments Gnomes love to play together, but they are also good at taking turns!

Relationships will always be about discovery, and discovery is always an indicator of growth. Comfort isn’t the end of romance, but it is the beginning of the reality of romance.

Discovering You Are In The Discovery Phase.
The comfort has settled in and now all your cats are coming out of the bag. This can also be where the beginning butterflies fade and the daily routines become a dominate role in both your lives. You start to discover who is/isn’t a morning person, who is/isn’t tidy, who closes the door when they use the bathroom, who is/isn’t always running 10 minutes late, eating habits, night owl activities, the list goes on and on. This can be a trip of turmoil as you learn to compromise, adjust, and accept, but in the process you strengthen your bond, grow true respect, and come out of this discovery phase with a whole new perspective. The important part here is to remember that you have never lost what you began with. The only difference is now you have to consciously make the same efforts you did in the butterflies phase. Remember when you dropped everything to bend over backwards to make time for your partner? Same mentality applies, and now you get the opportunity to blend it together with reality. A fun new challenge right?

As your relationship grows, Gnoments takes on an increasingly important role. Although the butterflies may have subsided and a growing sense of comfort has set in, the Gnoments Gnomes were specially designed to help create excitement. Who doesn’t like surprises? When an adorable bearded or braided Gnome appears in unexpected territory it will leave your loved one wondering “what the??” Things get more exciting as there might be a special memento in the back pouch or a programmed NFC message with further instructions. Whether you relive a weekend getaway together, send a Gnomicifaction with a link to “your” song, or stuff a love note in the Gnome pouch, Gnoments Gnomes will help you get the heart beats skipping and the butterflies fluttering once more. Gnoments give you an opportunity to return to the infallible hero status of those early days!

Discovery and familiarity are all a part of the great scheme of romance and love. You can’t truly have one without the other and honestly why would you want to anyway? In the process you have learned to truly accept your partner and relationship. You see your loves flaws, and relationships quirks for what they really are, special.

Familiarity & Acceptance. The Most Special Phase of All Phases.
This phase is warm, known, and accepting.
You can now finish each other sentences, manage a life around each other that weaves in and out almost effortlessly, and you have learned to love the little things even when they used to drive you more than insane. You can be yourself, stand your ground, and live with one another without the fear of rejection. You made it to the place every new romance hopes to see. In the process though you might have missed, rescheduled, or canceled more than a few date nights, late night pillow talks, and opportunities to plant the proverbial flowers of romance that welcome back the butterflies. Your romance isn’t dead, it’s just waiting to be reborn into the new life you two have created together!

Your love for each other is now understood and that is a beautiful accomplishment. It’s important in this phase of romance and love to remember that just because your undeniable love is understood, doesn’t mean that you have to stop explaining it through actions. There is never a phase in a relationship when you can stop working at romance. The Gnoments Gnomes are perfect for being the daily reminder that your relationship deepens and your story expands, when you continue to make special moments together.

Life makes its own agenda, and as the famous quote by John Lennon says “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans”.

Life & Love. The Phase of All Phases.
Two lives, and one busy relationship to manage!
You two have daily responsibilities, long days, people who count on you, and the never ending continuum of life adventures. With life, if it is not one thing it will surely be another. The list is lovely and oh so long: family, marriage, kids, pets, work, bills, sleep, healthy, and everything that makes up your LIFE. When life settles in we discover that life is what we make of it, and is composed of the moments that add up to create the beautiful picture we have worked hard to achieve. It is at this point in Life that you are in the best place to have a romance that only life lessons could grant.

Your romance is now probably a mixture of all the previous phases gloriously coming and going in a never ending cycle. True, you may have to plan a little more for romance, but your desires as a couple to spend time together never fades. You love your partner and this love continues to grow each day.

For most of us this phase of life and love, amongst all the chaos, tends to make us ask ourselves, what Romance? There is an abundance of love, but it’s a common theme of belief that there isn’t any time for romance. We generally take the time to make everyone else in our lives feel special, but often short change the love of our life. It may be assumed the love is present and understood, therefore replaces the need for romance as your life list of responsibilities grows.

As the seasons turn, the moon changes faces, and the life cycle repeats, love and romance too has its own cycle. It may take a bit of effort, just like the effort we put towards making everyone else happy around us. This shouldn’t make couples fearful, but instead create contentment in reflecting upon the many ways in which you’ve grown together in love. The excitement to continue this growth together and continually renew your romance is what pushes togetherness in every phase. Life has now presented you with all the necessary knowledge to understand what makes your romance work. Perhaps all that is missing is the reminder …

When romance begins to slip, Gnoments and our Gnomes have been designed to help create that excitement, and thoughtfulness, that shows the love of your life that you care. Your gestures don’t have to be elaborate, complicated, or cost any money. It’s the thoughtfulness that creates the romance, it shows that you care.

Your Gnoments Gnomes sit in their special spot and cannot wait to be used. All you have to go to begin is pick one up and play. No matter what phase of romance and love you are in, Gnoments and our Gnomes are here to help you!

Creating fun and thoughtful moments for the one you love is easy, especially when your love is resilient enough to make it through every phase of love and romance, especially the phase of life.
