Hmmm… obviously it’s personal, but the most romantic gestures for me are the unexpected things that show me how much he thinks about me. But like you and your Darling Husband, we are both very good at being nice and thoughtful all the time.
A few of my most memorable:

-When we first started dating, he surprised me by completely repainting and furnishing one of the rooms in his house into an office for me, so I “could still do work, but spend time with him!” It was so sweet, because it showed how much he cared for me and wanted my presence nearby.

-When I got my college degree in the mail, he tracked it through FedEx and got off of work early to pick up a frame and wrap it. When I got home from work, he gave it to me, with a handwritten letter about how proud he was of me, and how he would always support me.

-Jewelry is not something I really enjoy (except my ring, I LOVE the sparkle!) but he is very thoughtful with it. He got me a custom necklace for Christmas, which had a picture of him proposing on it. It was only like $50, but it was so thoughtful and sweet. And even when he picked out my engagement ring, he did some sleuthing to figure out what I liked. He found out I was at the mall, and got me to admit that I had tried on a ring to figure out my ring size. After we hung up, he called every jewelry store to see if someone matching my description had tried on rings, and what size I was and what style I had liked. I was SHOCKED when he proposed with my dream ring, in my size! We laughed about that one for awhile, when he told me about how he got the information! And he proposed by reenacting our first date. Okay, this is now just me gushing!

Then of course, there are the smaller things, like just because flowers, getting off early to make me dinner when I have a bad day, and surprising me with coffee at work.
Romance is year round! 🙂

Me: I drove to CVS to get him constipation medicine. He had a bad tummy ache all night and didn’t want to wake me up, so when he saw me stir in the morning, he told me about his pains, and I zoomed over to get him some relief. Super romantic. 

Him: I’m more of a traditional romantic, and I nagged him last year to get me a bouquet and macarons. He remembered. I was ecstatic. 🙂

This is less romantic and more like … sexy surprise-y, but I’m still so proud of it haha

For his birthday in college, I went to a Sears and got an empty box for the display deep freezer. I wrapped the box like a giant present and cut slits so the top would open. Then, I got into the box in just lingerie and high heels. One of his fraternity brothers who I trusted taped up the top and put a big bow on the box. Then he delivered me to my DH’s room on a dolly and said “special delivery!” and slid me off the dolly in his room.

The funniest part is he didn’t open it right away!! He assumed it was from me so he was texting and calling me trying to get me to come over so he could open it with me there! I was in the box for probably forty minutes between prep and waiting around for him to decide to sneak a peek lol

I filled a jar with little slips of paper, and on each slip is something that I like or love about him. Each day he takes one folded up slip out and reads it (and then puts it into another jar).
