"Creative Romance Month Calendar"

If you’ve been in a relationship during the month of February, you’ve probably felt the pressures and expectations leading up to the 14th. Between buying gifts, flowers and making reservations, it can become so stressful and feel like a burden instead of a celebration. While 53% of women say they would end a relationship if they didn’t receive a gift, celebrating Creative Romance Month is about doing romantic things rather than buying material goods. Pass up on the traditional flowers and chocolates and make your own gift. Do something spontaneous like building a fort in the living room for a movie night. Make dinner or serve breakfast in bed. Recreate your first date. Set up a sexy treasure hunt. Take something that’s meaningful to your relationship and incorporate it into your dates. There are plenty of ways to show your love without spending a lot of time or money, too. Leave a love note in your partner’s bag, help with errands, give a massage, or take a sunset walk.

Spending quality time together is the best gift you can give one another and serves as a reminder of how much you care about each other. If your partner is one of the 30% who’d prefer a little “fun night in” over a gift, this month is perfect for you two. And remember: sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most. So spread the love this Creative Romance Month and create new memories that will last a lifetime.
