Romantic Evening Ideas

Turning your bedroom into a relaxation and pampering zone is a start: light scented candles, put on your partner's favourite CDs, get out massage oil and put into practice what you learned in the Massage for Beginners book you borrowed from your local library.

If you have a garden, why not lay the garden table in style with white table cloth and flickering garden sconces - present your loved one with a romantic dinner under the stars? Lay a small gift, perhaps a pair of fashion jewellery earrings for her or a book about his favourite sport or hobby, on your loved one's chair for an additional romantic evening idea.

Plan something spontaneous. Okay, so the words "plan" and "spontaneous" don't always go this case they do. Have a general idea and go through with it. Send your date a romantic email or hand deliver a glittery invitation Saturday afternoon and tell him or her to pack a bag for 1) a beach date 2) a city date 3) a hot evening date or 4) all of the above. PLAN to take your date to an undisclosed location that involves either a nice car or airline tickets and the keys to a luxury hotel suite. You had to plan. It was spontaneous for your date. The key to this date is that you cared enough to plan to be SPONTANEOUS!

Take a gift - even if it is a very small token of your affection. It must be personal and meaningful. Consider chocolate, flowers, a teddy bear, a love letter, a poem, jewelry or if you really run out of ideas: a gift voucher.This is a very special night, make it unforgettable by treating your date as if he/she is the most important person in your world. Listen with your full attention to what they are saying, be attentive and focus on doing things that you know your date will enjoy.

Plan a date in - You don't have to go out to have a romantic evening. You can whip up a gourmet meal yourself. Or you can hire a personal chef to make a romantic meal for two. Then watch a favorite classic movie. Dance to "your" song. After all, it's all about the two of you.

When you want to buy an art deco lamp for your home, you need to decide whether you want a unique piece or a duplicate. The unique antique lamps are more expensive, however the modern knock-offs are quite well done as well and offer the same comfort and beauty to any room. It all depends on what type of furniture you have at home. If you like collecting unique and authentic pieces, you should go for a unique one. If you don't care much for spending $1000 on a piece, a copy will do nicely as well.
