For most people in the Southern hemisphere, the scorching heat of Summer is over. With Winter still awhile off, here is a nice thought: Autumn can stimulate romance. As the weather becomes less hot, so many wonderful activities inspire loving, pleasurable feelings during this exciting time of year! With a wide array of festive occasions, this season also remains a time to grow closer to loved ones and renew bonds of friendship and affection.
Fun, Romantic Activities
Sometimes the simplest romantic activities offer the best ways to reaffirm or expand a meaningful personal relationship. Here are just ten great ideas to inspire romance in your life during this lovely time of year:
- Visit the beach together:
Spend time sitting hand in hand by the shore, watching the sea birds dart and mew nearby as waves crash rhythmically against the sand.
- Spend time together on a fun weekend getaway:
Leave behind the cares of daily life and enjoy some quality time in a new location, just the two of you. Camping (or glamping for those not into roughing it) is great fun and convening with nature is very grounding.
- Leave a gift basket for you beloved in an unexpected place:
It can be a pleasant surprise to discover this type of specially made gift sitting in the front seat of a car or perched on the dining room table, together with an love note.
- Share a quiet, intimate meal together at home:
Prepare warm food in a convivial, fun setting. Picnic in the living room? Good fun and no ants.
- Plan a future vacation together:
Often, half the fun of a journey later in the year involves planning the excursion with one another. You will find out more information about the types of places your lover wants to visit!
- Decorate the house with many, many pretty flowers as a surprise:
Roses on the table and petals scattered seductively in the bathroom can set the stage for romance!
- Take up a new hobby together:
Sharing an interest in bird watching, gardening or a sport like rock climbing, can help you both explore new aspects of a relationship with one another.
- Send a bouquet of flowers to your loved one:
Just because. This simple gesture means a lot and will always endear you to your special someone.
- Go on a short cruise:
A simple paddle boat trip or a week long luxury journey aboard an ocean liner both offer the excitement of getting out on the water!
- Exchange candy boxes with one another, then share:
Sometimes letting each person sample a favourite treat spices up a romantic relationship. Chocolates, taffy, sugar candies, fudge and more can symbolise sweet thoughts!
