Show your spouse or significant other that you care tomorrow with these five romantic gestures:

Write Them a Note

Write your significant other a love note, or perhaps even a thank you note. A simple gesture like this is always appreciated. Write down your feelings in a sweet note–it doesn’t matter how long or short the note is. All that matters is that you took the time to think of that person.

Cook Them a Meal

If your significant other is always the one cooking for you, why not reverse the roles? Consider cooking them their favorite meal. There’s nothing better than a home cooked meal, a simple gesture that can easily show how much you care.

Buy a Thoughtful Gift

Even the smallest gesture like flowers can show that you give thought to your significant other. Buy them their favorite candy, or rent their favorite movie and have a nice movie night. The options are endless. No one knows your spouse or significant other more than you do.
