Relationships take work, and one of the most important things to remember is that if the romance and passion dies so will your relationship. But keeping romance alive isn’t a walk in the park. It takes time and thought to keep coming up with new ways to show your partner you care about them, and how special they are to you. The best are ways to surprise your boyfriend because of the thought you put into it.
20 great ways to surprise your boyfriend
With that in mind, we came up with 20 ways to surprise your boyfriend and let him know just how much he means to you! From the huge showstoppers to the little cute gestures, we’ve got you covered here.
#1 Leave him a treasure hunt. Surprises don’t have to cost much money, and doing something requiring effort and thought on your end makes his little heart glow.
Come up with a cute paper treasure hunt with clues for him to follow. What he finds at the end could be anything. His favorite chocolate bar or you lying in bed waiting for him! Use your imagination and see what you come up with.
#2 Give him some good old-fashioned romance. Many girls think boys aren’t bothered about romance, but they’d be wrong! You know how much we love it when our men bring us flowers, light some candles, run us a bath? Well, you’d be surprised at how many guys find this lovely too. So why not give it a go and help him unwind after a long day in the office?
#3 Change their alarm to something cute. Ah, the wonders of modern technology! Changing their alarm from the harsh beep to a specially recorded message can be super romantic. Or just change it to something cheeky and funny. No doubt you’ll put a smile on his face that he’ll be wearing for the rest of the day!
#4 Send him cute/sexy messages throughout the day. If you want to keep it simple, why not send him an unexpected message when he is at work? Tell him you are thinking of him. If you want to spice things up and give him a nice surprise, you could text a sexy message or picture too!
#5 The writings on the wall. Sneak into the bathroom while he showers and write, “I love you” on the steamy mirror. You can do this on the car window or window of your house too! A quick and sweet way to tell him how much you love him.
#6 Make him a packed lunch. If he is used to buying his lunch, why not surprise him by making him a packed lunch of all his favorite foods one? You could even put a cute message in there too!
#7 Bring him breakfast in bed. We all know the way to a man’s heart is his stomach, so why not serve him up a truly scrumptious breakfast in bed one day. It gives you huge brownie points for the rest of the day, we’re sure!
#8 Let him watch sports. If you are usually pretty strict with the TV remote, why not let him indulge for the day and give him free reign to watch all his favorite sports shows? He’ll be super grateful, that’s for sure!
#9 Bake. Why not bake him some delicious treats to take with him to work? Or have a cake ready for him when he gets home. Being all homey would pull at his heartstrings and make him realize what a wonderful woman you are!
#10 Take him out. It’s not just the ladies who like to be wined and dined, you know! Taking him out to his favorite restaurant or a place special to the two of you, and he’ll become putty in your hands. Make sure you let him know this is your treat and spoil him rotten. It is rare that ladies get to do this for their men, so be sure to enjoy taking control too!
#11 Act out his fantasy. While all surprises don’t have to be sexy, if you want to surprise him in the bedroom, why not finally make all his dreams come true? Let him act out his wildest sexual fantasy with you. Think about it, if you do, he is sure to return the favor for you, so it’s a win-win situation!
#12 Write him a love letter. Sometimes, the oldies really are the goodies. The art of writing letters seems to be lost in this modern world. Why not get a little old fashioned and write him a love letter telling him how amazing you think he is?
Everyone loves to be complimented, and you’ll get extra points if you actually stamp and post it off to him rather than just handing it over to him. Even if you live together, he’ll still think this is super cute!
#13 Take him for a picnic. Since summer is here, now is the perfect time to take him for a romantic walk and picnic. Find a great spot and spend the afternoon together eating great food, chatting, and lazing about in the sunshine—bliss!
#14 Tidy his apartment. If you don’t live together and he is a bit of a messy one, surprise him by getting his house in order! Of course, some guys like their mess, but if you think your guy appreciates a helping hand then this could be a great way to surprise him.
#15 Give him a picture. Find a cute snap of you two together and get it framed. Give this to him as a surprise gift, so he can proudly display the pair of you, and always be reminded of what a great couple you are.
#16 Buy him tickets. Know he is a fan of a particular band? Is there a sporting event near you that he is dying to go to? Buying him tickets for something you know he adores, is a wonderful way to show him you care.
#19 Give him a voucher. No, we don’t mean a voucher to the shops! We mean a ‘you’ voucher. One he cashes in wherever he wants. He gets to spend time with you, picking whatever it is he wants to do, of course!
#20 Give him a massage. A surprise, romantic massage is sure to delight him and help him unwind if he feels stressed out or tired. Turn the lights down low, light some candles, get some oils, and give him the full massage treatment!
These 20 ways to surprise your boyfriend are fun, easy to do, and are sure to make him appreciate you even more. So if you are looking for a way to show that special man in your life exactly how much you care, why not give one of these a try today?!
