The pandemic has affected our lives as we know it. Travel restrictions and lockdowns have canceled all dreams of exploring the world and spending blissful days by the sea on the coasts of France or the islands of Maldives. If you promised your wife a cruise or a European trip this year, do not fret. There are other ways to show your wife how much she means to you, even if you cannot leave your state or even your city.
- Give her something sparkly
Jewelry may sound shallow to some, but giving your wife high-quality jewelry and watches is one way to show her that she deserves all the best things in life. Call your trusted jeweler for an appointment if you need assistance in choosing the perfect gift for your wife. If your wife is a practical and simple woman, she may appreciate a pair of simple stud earrings, a classic jeweled ring, or a bejeweled face watch. If your wife loves to dress up, give her a pair of drop earrings or a set of bangles. The price of high-quality jewelry appreciates, making it a worthy investment.
- Set up a candlelight dinner under the stars
Who says you need to go out to have a romantic evening? Set up a romantic table for two in your deck or your yard. You can ask for assistance from your children. You’ll be surprised at how eager they will be to help you create a wonderful surprise for their mother.
Your daughter probably has some string lights in her bedroom. Hang some lights to make the ambiance warm and romantic. Put some fresh flowers in a simple vase or a thin glass, light some candles, and serve something delicious for dinner. If cooking is not your forte, there is no shame in calling for food delivery. Your wife will still appreciate the sweet gesture. You can talk about everything over a bottle of wine, beneath a blanket of twinkling stars.
- Order what she’s been eyeing online
Before you go to sleep, you probably spend a few minutes browsing on your smartphones or tablets. Be observant. Has she been repeatedly looking over that set of a diffuser and essential oils on her friend’s social media wall? Has she been looking constantly at that leather tote, the new book from her favorite author, or that set of teacups? Order what she has been eyeing online. Imagine her surprise when she receives that box and discovers that it is for her. It’s like waking up to Christmas morning and finding that there is a box for you under the tree.
- Dance with her
Surprise her with a sweet spin in your living room. Play her favorite music or your wedding theme, take her hand, and slow dance with her in the living room. Choose a song that means something to her. It doesn’t matter what you are doing before. Take a pause from whatever you are doing and just hold her and sway to the music.
- Sing her a song
You do not need to have a deep and cool baritone, although it would be a big plus if you did. When she is cooking dinner or washing the dishes or preparing breakfast, sing to her. If you play the guitar, it can definitely add a strong impact on your performance. Or you can learn that song she likes, and then play it on a guitar. It will bring a big smile on your wife’s lips.
- Satisfy her sweet tooth
Chocolates were a no-fail gift when you were still dating. Buy her a box of her favorite chocolates. Dark chocolates help in the production of endorphins, which help you feel good. It also contains serotonin which helps improve your mood. A box of chocolates after a long and busy day will perk up her mood.
- Do the chores
Yes, this might sound simple, but it will be greatly appreciated. Wake up before your wife and prepare breakfast. She will definitely be delighted when she finds that breakfast is ready when she comes down and that you have already brewed some coffee. Take the laundry bag and do the laundry. Vacuum the floors. Take some of her household tasks off her hands and let her sit down and relax.
- Give her a bouquet
You used to give your wife flowers every time you went for a date. Why not do that again? Flowers are not just beautiful, they have a long-term effect on your mood. Flowers bring feelings of happiness, excitement, and satisfaction. Give her a bouquet of her favorite blooms and watch her smile brighten up the room. You can even order them online and have them delivered to your home.
The world is already suffering enough from the disruptions brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Don’t let your marriage and relationships suffer too. Once in a while, plan a surprise for your wife. It can be as simple as bringing her breakfast to bed or ordering a box of her favorite doughnuts. After all, happiness does not have to be complicated.
