Making your partner feel loved is usually a high priority for most couples. However, it can get a little redundant writing love notes or sending cards or flowers. Sometimes you just want to express your devotion in a quick, yet unique way. The following idea will help you do just that! In fact, after you've made your quick gift, you'll find some creative romantic ways to give it to your partner as well.
What you'll need:
- Rocks (find them outside or purchase them from a discount or craft store)
- Paint Pens or a Permanent Marker like a Sharpie (various colors if you want to get really creative)
If you've found your rocks outside, take a few moments to clean them and let them fully dry. Once they are dry use your paint pens to write little messages on them. Or write single words of inspiration such as love, romance, amour, etc. Let the messages dry and use one of the ideas below for presenting the gift to your partner.
Make a Scavenger Hunt
Decide on a sentence you want to write. For example, "I will always love you." On each rock write one word of the sentence. Leave the first rock of the sentence where they will find it with a clue to find the next one. Continue with this pattern until they find that last rock. You could have it lead them to a romantic picnic dinner in the backyard or to a romantic rendezvous with you in the bedroom.
This presentation is especially great if they've just been promoted or are starting out on a new venture on their own. Write a saying or word that you want to them to see everyday. Wrap it in tissue paper and put it in a box. On top of the rock write a little note saying why you are giving them the gift.
Romantic Room Décor
If you get rocks that match your or your partner's home décor you can make a classy daily reminder of your affection. Choose a sentence you want to write. For example, "You will always have my heart." On each rock write one word of the sentence. Make sure you write them in a place where, when the rocks are set down in order, they can actually read the entire sentence without having to move a rock to view it. When they aren't home lay out your message for them to see.
For a fun way to stay romantic, use small rocks that can be put in a bowl or jar. On each one write a love wish either partner can grant. Such as, kiss, hug, tickle, talk, date, romance, share, whisper, dream, etc. Each word should stand for an action you each agree to complete. For example, if your partner pulled out the kiss rock you'd both share a kiss. If one of you pulled out the talk rock, you would both share a few minutes talking about your day.
