In any relationship, it is important to keep the spark alive. This applies especially to long-term married couples.
Things are different when you are dating. The honeymoon period in a relationship is always full of romance. The new phase is full of passion and longing to be together. You remain connected all the time via texts and calls. Romantic dates, long drives, and weekend getaways happen quite frequently.
However, after marriage, these things take a back seat. You get bogged down by family responsibilities. Work commitments and hectic schedules keep you occupied. Soon the priorities begin to change.
However, in the long run, this can start affecting a relationship and issues may begin to crop up. Both the partners can start feeling that there is something missing.
At that point in time, you have to become your old self. You have to repeat all the romantic things you used to do for your wife at the beginning.
The love flies out of the window and couples feel distant. This further leads to dissatisfaction and complaints. Without even realizing, you push your partner away and let distance come in between.
You must never let that happen to your precious relationship. After all, your partner was once the person you could not live without.

These small gestures also allow you to feel closer and build sexual chemistry. You might end up spending some quality time together after winding up from the hustle and bustle of routine.
Get gifts for her without any occasion
You don’t need occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries to gift your wife. Gifts don’t even need to be expensive and unique.
Next time while coming back from work, grab something for her. It can be a flower, chocolates, or anything small. You can also get her coffee when returning home or wine/ champagne which you both can enjoy after dinner.
Some of the other gifting ideas can be a dress from her favorite brand, bags, or perfumes. If you are aware of her online wish-list, you can surprise her by ordering it.
Even better, get some food while coming back home. You can enjoy some good moments together as she will be free from cooking duties.
Book an appointment for Couple Spa

It is a good idea to write a love letter to your wife and pen down your emotions. This will build intimacy between the two of you. A love letter is also a good way of expressing their feelings for people who have trouble vocalizing their emotions.
You can mention all the things about your wife that you love and appreciate. You can thank her for how well she takes care of you, your family, or kids. Writing a letter by your hands can be much more romantic.
Helping her with household work
This might seem to be an unromantic thing and you might wonder how come this makes to the list.
Yes, doing laundry and utensils can’t be romantic. But sharing your wife’s burden and responsibilities is a thoughtful gesture.
The caring act from you will impress her more than romance. This will reflect your concern and care for her, that you loved her.
It is rightly said that sharing is caring and when you share domestic responsibilities of your wife, there can’t be a more romantic husband than you.
Foot/ back massage
You don’t need to be a professional masseur. All you need is a will to make your beloved wife feel relaxed.
Giving her a good back or foot massage after a tiring day at work can make her feel relaxed.
She would appreciate your efforts and would love how much you care for her.
A special massage from a husband is way more special than any professional. It’s more about your thoughtfulness than massage.

And more than romantic, she will be impressed by your thoughtfulness. Take the responsibility of kids and household chores and ask her to plan an evening with her lovely ladies.
Even she wants her ‘me’ time with her girlies as much as you want it with your boys’ gang.
Your wife will appreciate the fact that you think about her happiness. She will fall in love with you all over again.

If you get free early, just surprise her by waiting for her at her office. Driving her back home will allow you both to spend time together.
