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.

Gnoments | 10 Unique Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Gnoments

 

We don’t have anything against long stemmed roses, candle light dinners, or chocolates …

In fact we love all those things! But this year we suggest you spice things up and think outside the heart shaped chocolate box. As the years go by together you might find it harder and harder to find unique, fun and thoughtful ways to add some variation to your Valentine’s Day routine as a couple.

We’ve come up with 10 unconventional Valentine’s Day ideas that are sure to make a night worth remembering, and one that will set the standards for the rest of your romantic year ahead.

1. Print Photos Of You Two Together
Take a walk down memory lane together and relive all the captured moments that make up your love story. You can plaster them on your fridge, make a scrapbook together, or just sip wine and reminisce.

2. Mail a Love Letter to Your Significant Others’ Work
Who doesn’t love to be surprised? Flowers and Edible Arrangements might be expected, but receiving mail at work will be a completely shocking surprise. Receiving mail is always exciting, especially when it’s unexpected and from someone you love.

3. Fill Your Bedroom with Helium Balloons
Your local Dollar Store is sure to have a multitude of balloons that you can use to set the stage for the night. Add a little touch of sensual stimulation to your typical bedroom décor. You can even add rose petals and hang strands of lights if you really want to create a romantic staycation environment.

4. Send a Sweet Text on the Hour Every Hour
A text is a modern day love letter! Sending a text every hour on the hour on Valentine’s Day is the equivalent of standing outside a balcony proclaiming your love out loud. The texts can be simple and sweet, or saucy and alluring *wink wink

5. Car Chalk/Lipstick Bomb the Car
It’s the same idea as the “Just Got Married” car festivities, only for Valentine’s Day instead. You can put kisses all over the windows, or write sweet messages all over the car. All day long your sweetheart will be getting looks of admiration as they drive around town. It’s a Valentine’s Day card that’s goes wherever your honey does!

6. Have a Picnic on the Floor At Home
We know it’s cold outside, but who said a Picnic is limited to outside?
You can have a cozy little feast right on the floor of your home. You can even build a fort, or let “Living Landscapes” on Netflix play to make it feel like spring!

7. Have a Sexy Photoshoot
Technology has made it very easy for you to be a professional photographer, besides these photos are just for the two of you. They will serve as sexy reminders of how tantalizing your alone time together can be, not just on Valentine’s Day but all year!

8. Play Strip Poker
It’s game night with all the right incentives.

9. Send a Heart Shaped Pizza
It’s the perfect way to celebrate the one who has a “pizza” your heart. If you are good in the kitchen you can even bake your own pie of love. This is one Valentines heart shaped goodie that is cheesy in all the right ways!

10. Carve Your Initials Somewhere
Make your love permanent! If you aren’t up for the commitment of a tattoo then why not carve your initials into a tree on your property? You can also write them in marker somewhere in your home like a little corner on the ceiling or inside a cupboard door you use often. Each time you come home, look up, or open up the cupboard you will enjoy a heart smile that reminds you of your love together.

Valentine’s Day is perfect for creating a romantic standard of how you can expand on your romantic occasions together. Valentine’s Day is a mentality that doesn’t have to end after the 14th of February has come and gone. You and your love want to feel special and appreciated every day not just once a year, and with a little help from Gnoments and our Gnomes more days can be like Valentine’s Day.

Gnomes celebrate around 300 years of marriage so they know a thing or two about keeping things exciting and extending the Valentine’s Day mentality to last all year long. Love is worth celebrating more than just one day a year! Gnome matter how you choose to spend your time together, what really matters is that you do. Gnoments and our Gnomes are here to help you accomplish you relationship goals and keep the romance alive and active all year long.

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.

The Beginning | Sharing A Special Moment With The Gnoments Creator

IMG_0575

Growing up, I often woke up to a sweet note my Dad would leave my Mom on our kitchen countertop, and sometimes in the summertime there was a bouquet of fresh cut flowers to go along with the note.  I can remember my Dad’s particular style of writing and the smell of the carnations, my Mom’s favorite flowers, as though it was yesterday.

When I got married, my husband and I often did kind and thoughtful things for each other. You know those sweet things that happen in the honeymoon phase of dating and marriage?  Ahhhh, those early years, how special they are.  Sadly, somehow as nearly 20 years of marriage has gone by, starting a joint business, adding 2 boys to the mix with tons of activities to keep up with, it is difficult to get a full night sleep, let alone mustering up the energy or creativity to do the sweet little things for one another.  I would often wonder, what could I do that would be special and I would go online, check out pinterest and whatever creative ideas I could borrow from the talented people out there, but honestly, there was not much in the way of fun new ideas to surprise my honey.

I still remember when we came up with Gnoments, there was a group of us at our office laughing yet lamenting about how kids get all the fun and exciting things and that there is nothing special or magical for us grown ups – ‘ding’ lightbulb moment – Gnoments was born.  The concept was to design a cute character that could sit somewhere and be the bearer of tidings and surprises.  Once we made our first Gnome prototype, they sat on a visible shelf we had.  Their sheer presence reminded us to stop and do something sweet for one another.

One Sunday morning, shortly after Gnoments arrived home, the boy gnome was not on the shelf with his mate.  I must admit, I felt excited, as if I was 12 years old again, waking up on my birthday.   I wondered, why isn’t the gnome where he belongs? Where could he be? Was there something waiting for me? I excitedly walked into the kitchen, opened up the pantry to get a coffee cup and there was the gnome, holding my favorite blueberry muffin and a sweet little note in his back pouch that read:   “Good Morning to my beautiful Wife! I love you!”  What a way to start the day – I was all smiles!  I couldn’t wait to reciprocate!

Knowing my hubby was going to be at the office all day, I thought I would quickly grab my girl gnome, and I programmed the NFC Chip with a link of the website of our favorite restaurant, along with a text message that read, “Friday Night – just you and me!”  And a note that I placed in the back pouch that said: “scan me”.  I quickly put it in his briefcase.  Shortly after he arrived at the office, I got a phone call and it clearly made his day too.

We decided right there that Gnoments accomplished for us what we set out to do.  So, we decided to have some more made and gave them to people on our team that were in relationships and friends and the verdict was the same:  Gnoments helped create those thoughtful moments for both young, just dating couples, and seasoned couples too.  All relationships need fostering and these Gnomes were developed to do just that.  We hope Gnoments creates fun and thoughtful moments for you too!

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

Romance Made Simple | Cost Free, Time Effective, and Sweet Date Night Ideas

Romance Made Easy

Creating fun and thoughtful moments for the one you love doesn’t always have to be a costly event. In fact, some of the most memorable events are the ones that inadvertently sweep you and your sweet heart into the moment without spending a cent.

Going out to eat, watching a movie, and romantic vacations are wonderful but we don’t always have the expendable funds or time to do those things frequently. This doesn’t mean date night doesn’t happen, it just means we have to get a little bit more creative! So, we put on our red pointed Gnome thinking caps and channeled our inner Gnomes (after 300 years of marriage they have mastered budgeting and date night) for some ideas that allow for quality time on a slim to none budget, and when time is short and of the essence. Whether you have kids to tend to, a sleep schedule to maintain, books to hit, or are simply exhausted, we promise we have crafted a go to date night list for you.

Below are seven date night ideas, one for each day of the week if you are ambitious, that will enrich your relationship, give you and your sweetheart one on one time together, and give you moments to cherish and reflect on long after the day is done. Your little Gnome lovers are the perfect indicator that your honey is in for something special, so grab a Gnoment and create a moment!

You can start by Sending a Gnomifiction or let your Gnome deliver the message in person.

Which date night will you treat your honey to first?

  1. Have a Walk to Remember

Taking a walk together is more about the journey than the destination. Whether you will be circling around the block, walking to the farmers market, or walking the dog, taking a walk together is not only good for you but it also dedicates time to conversation and is a good excuse to hold hands. It can be a short walk, a long walk, or treadmill walk, the point is to make them all walks to remember.

  1. Dance Party for Two

After a long day the last thing that may cross your mind is having a dance party. However, this dance party has a VIP list of just the two of you. The music can be fast or slow, or even nonexistent all together. Remember how much it made your heart race to hold the one you love near? Well you can have a slice of that each night if you make the time to hold each other close. There is no arm length restriction at this dance party and there isn’t even a dress code.

  1. Star Gaze

Your wishes are twice as likely to come true when you both wish upon the stars together! There is nothing more magical or mystical then the stars and moon. They make you feel small and remind you that out of all the planets, places, and people in the world, you two found each other. As a bonus the darkness holds your secrets so what happens in the dark stays there.

  1. Read a Book Together in Bed

Together you two can choose your own adventure! Will it be a science fiction adventure, a fantasy fairytale, or maybe even a biography on a person of interest? It’s all part of the fun that you two can experience together. Open a bottle of wine, pop some popcorn, and take turns reading. After a glass or two of wine you might even really get into character!

  1. 5 Minute Foot Rub Exchange

This one is a win win and a no brainer. Who doesn’t want a foot massage, plus it gives you both something to look forward to at the end of a long day.

  1. A Shower for Two

Not that this needs much explanation, but a shower for two will cut your water bill in half. So in the long run it actually saves you money and doubles as a wonderful date night in. Light some candles turn on some music and turn your bathroom into a makeshift sauna for two.

  1. Netflix and Cuddles

When all else fails and you can’t possibly dream of moving an inch, you can’t go wrong with Netflix. The cuddling also won’t take much effort but you may have to rock paper scissors on who deals with the “are you still watching” dilemma. Netflix is always a cheap and fun date night affair that tends to end your evening on a happy note.

The moments we hold dearest are the ones that touch our hearts. It’s the conversations, shared smiles, butterflies, and laughs that we hold onto dearly. If you can find a way to work in as many of those moments into your day as you can, then you will be rich in ways money can’t buy. Still treat yourself to dinners, trips, and gifts, but make date night last far beyond the dollar count and extend past one day a week.

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.

Its The Little Things | DIY Romance That Will Make Him Grin From Ear To Ear

Romance Him

Starting at an early age we are all exposed to the mass marketing business of romance. The fairytale romances of cartoon characters, the eccentric antics of couples on TV, and of course the bombardment of glossy advertisements showcasing an idealistic woman and other wildly unrealistic hoops to jump through to woo a man. All this drama can make romancing the man of your life seem unobtainable and like quite a daunting task, but we have good news! It’s not.

The reality is that romancing a man properly is actually much easier than it may appear. It’s a massive misconception that it takes “big” assets and many lofty gestures to be in favor of the one you love. In fact, much like the male gender counterpart, it’s the little things that make us happy. The intention, thought, and heart is what transforms a seemingly simple gesture into a grand one.

We are here to help and once you have read our DIY romance suggestions that will make him grin from ear to ear, you will be able to send in your Gnome for some BIG heartfelt results. You can start by announcing your intentions with a Gnomification, programming your NFC chip embedded in your Gnome or handwriting a little note. The hardest part of beginning this process will simply be choosing where to start! That’s a great problem to have right?

Get Active Together

Let him pick the activity, and then go along with the plan. Getting active together is a great way to have an adventure, and depending on your honey it can also be a great workout. Maybe getting active for him is taking the 4 wheel drive out for a romp in the mud, in which case put on your swimsuit and get a little dirty. No matter what this gesture means to him, roll with it! Let him show you a goodtime and have a field day of his own in the process.

 Let Him Pick the Restaurant

Chances are this may be a conflicting conversation that happens more than once in a while. Women have a tendency to feign little concern for this decision, but still decline suggestions until the 8th place suggested. Once in a while, go with his first choice and even offer to pay. The happiness it will bring him is worth the temporary discomfort of your conflicting tastes. If this isn’t ever an issue, then you’re in luck! He will be all the more pleased to choose the chow down location, one in which you will both be happy.

 Take Him to the Movies

A spin on the traditional date! Ask him to the movies, treat him to popcorn, and maybe even slip in a smooch or two during the boring parts. In this scenario he also gets to pick the movie, after all this date is about making him feel special.

Pack Him a Lunch

No one knows your honey better than you, so who better to pack him a lunch worth drooling over?

We all know time at the office passes quickly, and often times we forget to eat properly if at all. Send him off to seize the day with a balanced meal that will place a big smile on his face, and a proverbial one on his stomach. You can even slip in a sweet/sensual note about what’s for dessert.

Send an “I Appreciate You” Text

Feeling validated is important in any relationship, especially one where you are both working hard together to create a happy, loving home. You can never express enough how much you cherish the one you love, or the contributions they make to your life. Technology has made it easy to tell your guy exactly how much he means to you, he is sure not to forget it. The heart keeps smiling long after the face reveals it!

Offer up a foot rub or back massage

He will not say no and he will love it.

He may even offer to give you one in return! It’s amazing how thoughtful deeds inspire more thoughtfulness. It all comes full circle!

Say I Love You in a Creative Way

Throw him for a curve ball with your delivery, and keep him on his toes! Slip an “I Love You” note into the back pocket of his Gnome, or spell it in peperoni on a pizza. Keeping things interesting and fresh will make each “I Love You” seem like the first. It reminds him that it’s not the routine of saying “I Love You” that prompts those three words to be repeated time and time again.

Take an Interest in His Hobbies

We all have something that excites us to no avail! It’s important to show interest in your lover’s hobbies, even when they might not be exactly what you consider fun. You will be surprised how happy it will make him to teach you something new. It gives you both a chance to bond, and you may even come to appreciate something you never thought you could. If nothing else, you will get to stare at his cute smile as he talks passionately. It’s an all-around win!

Suggest a Guy’s Night

Just like women need their girl time, men also need their guy time. As much as spending time together is wonderful, sometimes it’s nice to have a little time apart to miss one another. Help him plan a poker night, backyard BBQ, or Mario Cart play off night. It’s been scientifically proven that spending time with friends is good for preventing heart disease, and even a little time apart makes reuniting all the more exciting. It’s also creates the perfect opportunity for you to have a girls night. Keep your hearts healthy and the excitement continually mounting!

Send Him a Sexy Photo

The easiest way of course being through text! It’s another technological way to romance your man. Add more intrigue and send a Gnomification through our Gnoments website! A Gnomification will send a personal email/text from you and your Gnome directly to your love and his Gnome. If you want something a bit more professional than a sexy selfie, you can arrange to have boudoir photos taken. Groupon offers great specials on photoshoot sessions often!

You Know That One Thing He Does That Drives You Insane?

Ignore it for a full 24 hours.

As hard as this may seem, grant him the right to:

Listen to his awful music loudly, leave his socks right where he stepped out of them, want hamburgers for dinner for the 3rd day in a row, let the dog on the couch, ask you a million questions while you’re watching you favorite show. Yes anything on your list of annoying habits let him live them out for one day. The truth is he knows how you feel, and he respects it, but as is human sometimes we just want to cut loose and be appreciated for the fact that we are trying.

Surprise Him with a Silly Gift

Most men like gifts just as much as women do. It’s the thought that counts, so make your thoughts center around something you know he would like. It could be something that invokes the reminder of an inside joke, pertain to one of his hobbies (which you now know all about as per the above DIY romance idea) or it could be something sultry that will give him a goofy grin. No matter the item be it bought, made, or found, it will be a symbolic reminder of how he is always in your thoughts.

Cook His Favorite Meal

It always seems to come back to food. The age old saying “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” has survived the ages for a reason. If you are a good cook, whip up one of his favorite dishes. If your kitchen skills are less than excellent don’t worry, it doesn’t detract from the deed. Cook to your skill level, or order out and set it up at home. Even a tragic dinner burnt black will turn into a hilarious memory and he will appreciate the action none the less.

Pour Him His Favorite Drink

When Friday seems far off, or perhaps it is Friday and it’s time to cut loose, jump two steps ahead and have his favorite after hours drink ready for him when he gets home. You can even program the NFC chip in his Gnome to send a sound bite from Jimmy Buffetts Margaritaville. Bonus, you get to have your favorite drink too, and together you can have happy hour at home.

Don’t let the preconceived notions of what you are told romance should look like stop you from trying. The two things all our suggestions have in common are you and true intentions to make a genuine impression. If you are lucky enough to have a man in your life that looks at you with hearts in his eyes, then I can assure you that any one of these suggestions will only solidify and continue to renew the love you have cultivated together.

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.

It’s the Little Things |DIY Romance That Will Make Her Heart Sing

Romance Her

Starting at an early age we are all exposed to the mass marketing business of romance. The fairytale romances of cartoon characters, the eccentric antics of couples on TV, and of course the bombardment of glossy advertisements showcasing diamonds and other wildly expensive gifts to woo women. All this drama can make romancing the lady of your life seem unobtainable and like quite the undertaking, but we have good news! It’s not.

The reality is that romancing a woman properly is actually much easier than it may appear. It’s a massive misconception that it takes a big bank account and many grand gestures to be in favor of the one you love. In fact, much like the female gender counterpart, it’s the little things that make us happy. The intention, thought, and heart is what transforms a seemingly simple gesture into a grand one.

We are here to help and once you have read our DIY romance suggestions that will make her heart sing, you will be able to send in your Gnome for some BIG heartfelt results. You can start by announcing your intentions with a Gnomification, programming your NFC chip embedded in your Gnome or handwriting a little note. The hardest part of beginning this process will simply be choosing where to start! That’s a great problem to have right?

Send a Sweet/Sensual Text

Never underestimate the power of the written word. Text messaging has created an amazing opportunity for high-tech love letters. Add more intrigue to your text and send a Gnomification through our Gnoments website! A Gnomification will send a personal emai/textl from you and your Gnome directly to your love and her Gnome. You can make it simple and sweet or sensual and spicy, either way it’s sure to leave a lasting impression on her the rest of the day.

Write Her a Love Letter

Take your sweet text to the next level and write it out! This is what is known as a love letter. There is something special about old world romance and I assure you, no matter what sort of lady you have in your life, she will melt like putty with this one. Don’t talk yourself out of it because you don’t think you are capable! Like we already established it’s all about the intent, and the very action alone will solidify the grandness of the deed. Slip your love letter into the back pouch of her Gnome and deliver a surprise that proves gnomebody loves her more!

Couple Pedicures

Let’s start by saying that this does not demean you manliness. Trust us, your women views your feet and fingernails just the same as you do hers. It’s a two way street! Couples pedicures are relaxing and enjoyable for both parties. It will thrill her that you are willing to go out of your comfort zone, and it will also give you an opportunity to bond. If you still aren’t convinced just know all pedicures come with a foot rub. Sounds amazing right?

Cook Her Dinner

If you are a good cook, whip up one of her favorite dishes. If your kitchen skills are less than excellent don’t worry, it doesn’t detract from the deed. Cook to your skill level, or order out and set it up at home. Even a tragic dinner burnt black will turn into a hilarious memory and she will appreciate the action none the less.

 Flowers

This one is easy and never gets less exciting. If you want to up your flower power gesture, have them sent to her work! The additional compliments she gets while they bloom will make her smile and bring her thoughts right back to you.

Chocolates

This one, like flowers never gets less exciting or delicious. It is not a cliché, women really do love chocolate! With the exception of a few with food allergies we have never known a woman who didn’t love chocolate in some form. Trust us on this, chocolates are like a kiss in edible form.

Draw Her a Bath

As much as spending time together is wonderful, sometimes it’s nice to have a little peace and quiet. When the stresses run high this idea is perfect. Baths and Showers have been scientifically proven to release happy hormones, and the time to reflect will have her appreciating your efforts even more. If she is not a bath person, get the shower steamy and hot for her.  Add extra ambiance with wine, candles, and some aroma therapy bath salts.

Make the Bed

The act alone will be greatly appreciated, even if the decorative pillows are not in the right order. If you’re the bed maker in the relationship, then leaver her a charming note that says “I turned down the blankets for you”. It’s all about turning the expected into the unexpected. With this idea, you can really transform any typical daily chore into something funny and memorable.

Say I Love You in a Creative Way

Any time you proclaim your love to a woman she will listen. Say it loud, say it proud, and throw her for a curve ball with the delivery.  With Gnoments you can program the NFC chip in her Gnome to play a sound bite from your special song. It keeps things fresh and reminders her that it’s not the routine of saying “I Love You” that keeps those three words being repeated.

Offer to Handle a “To-Do” from Her List

Offering help makes her feel appreciated and validates that you respect her time equal to your own.

This habit also has the benefit of leading to reciprocated help. The Beatles hit song was a hit for a reason, we all get by a little better with the help.

Tell Her She is Beautiful

This has best results when said out of the blue and for no reason at all. However, heartfelt compliments are always a good idea. Women are hard on themselves, and sometimes a little outside reminder that “you only have eyes for her”, or that she is “one foxy lady” makes all the difference in how she feels all day. A compliment from someone you love is priceless!

Make Her your Screen Saver

This is similar to telling her she is beautiful, but it puts those words into action. This simple gesture is a sweet way saying “the whole world knows who my eyes gleam for”. It also has the subtle way of hinting that you think about her even when she isn’t around. It’s another technological way to romance your lady love.

Offer up a Foot Rub or Back Massage

She will not say no and she will love it.

She may even offer to give you one in return, especially if you took our advice and did the couples pedicure. It all comes full circle!

Treat Her Like a Lady

This last one might sound like a no brainer, but it goes back to the old world romance we touched on. Treat your lady like a lady and she will see you as her man. Open her doors, tuck your phone away at dinner, pick up the bill when you’re the one who asks her out, and walk her to the door. Heck, carry her over the threshold! Manners matter and she is sure to take notice in the special treatment you are awarding her in exchange for her hand. You will get extra suave points if you can even work in calling her My ‘lady a time or two.

Don’t let the preconceived notions of what you are told romance should look like stop you from trying. The two things all our suggestions have in common are you and true intentions to make a genuine impression. If you are lucky enough to have a woman in your life that looks at you with hearts in her eyes, then I can assure you that any one of these suggestions will only solidify and continue to renew the love you have cultivated together.
