Telling your special someone that you care about them doesn’t have to be some grand gesture. You don’t have to take them to the finest Phuket romantic restaurants each and every night, or buy so much expensive jewellery that they make Mr T look modestly adorned. Instead, it can be something small and simple that you do for them or do together. Here are some simple ideas to inspire you:
Leave a handwritten note
Yes, you could quite easily send them a text message to say ‘I love you’, and it would certainly transmit the message successfully. However, taking the time to craft a good old-fashioned love letter – or even just a quick note – shows that you’re willing to put a little effort in on their behalf. It’s infinitely more meaningful than an SMS.
Sit under the stars
Taking some time to enjoy the beauty of nature together is something very special, and the night sky has a distinctive romance to it. If you’re in Phuket, you might have to drive a little out into the sticks to find a patch of sky that’s dark enough, and you might even need to cross over to Phang Nga, but it’s absolutely worth it!
Bring home some flowers
As Phuket romantic tips go, this one is seriously old-school, yet it still does the trick. The time and thought needed to stop by a florist and get a bouquet made up shows that your partner is always in your thoughts.
Take a sunset walk
With so many great beaches to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to places to take a sunset stroll. Karon Beach is perhaps one of the best since it’s long enough that you’ll certainly have some space to yourselves and the sand is soft on your feet.
Go to the movies
You remember when you first started going out with your partner and did the classic ‘dinner and a movie’ date? Don’t let the fact that you’re going steady stop that!
Have a spa day
Phuket has no shortage of great spas where you can get a couples treatment together. If you want to go one step further, you could do the massage yourself!
Say ‘I love you’
You don’t always need to make a special gesture. Sometimes, just the words will do. Just make sure you do it with tact – don’t cheapen the words by overusing them or using them at the wrong time.
