You can follow that up with a romantic dinner out, or a night in.

3. Concert. The typical ideas of romance are not the only ways you can be romantic. Having fun is important as well. Instead of just going out for dinner, why not take your partner somewhere new and fun? A concert or some other event can be a great way for the two of you to enjoy a night out, and also add a fresh experience.

You can pull out all the stops, a gourmet meal in the candle light, the fancy china, the works. You can even take that a step further by making it a surprise.

5. A locket. Most couples buy accessories for one another as a sign of their affection. But a great way to add romance to this common occurrence is changing up what you buy.
