Hey lovelies I need some ideas for romantic ideas for my partner! I recently for his birthday done a jar filled with 100 reasons why I love him but he's been having a bit of a hard time recently and I want to do something to surprise him xx

Nice idea however, are you sure he'd like that? As a male, I think if find it a bit cringy. Don't mean to piss on your fireworks!
Actions probably speak louder than words, so a gesture he'd like, would probably have more impact.
Good luck smile

Aww, you sound lovely!

Are you wanting to do something homemade again? What about a voucher book for a back rub, you cook his favourite meal, he gets a lie in and you get up with the kids (if you have them), etc.?

Oh, I thought the OP was saying that she had already done that for his birthday.

Aww thank you x
Yeah I have already done the jar thing and he loved it actually he's your typical manly man in front of everyone else but with me he's actually a huge softy he shed a wee tear reading them but I was warned that stayed between us haha! And homemade or something a bit more ott totally open to ideas! Love the vouchers idea thank you xx

Write him an erotic story as you two as the characters.

Mine's very favourite gift is a steak and a BJ 😆
