Hey guys, I'm looking for some ideas on really great romantic things I can do for my wife. I don't have much money to spare, and we have two kids and way too many pets - going out is difficult. Something I can do at home, or bring to her, that is very romantic. Something more than just "do the dishes for her once" etc. What have you guys done that was particularly well received?

Women are so simple, by that I mean they love the most little simpple thing you can imangine. Like leave little notes for her for no reason. My wife use to pack a lunch some times and I would sneak a note in her lunch bag. Her and her friends would get a big kick out of it. bring home her favorite candy bad and leave it on the counter when she least expects it. any little thing that tells them you were thinking of them will win her over everytime hope this helps.

Uh oh, that brings me to a startling revelation... The way to a woman's heart is through her stomach! (lol)

Ok, I have two kids, and I can tell you what would be awesome for me.... When you get home, go get her robe and slippers, put on a bath for her, Close off the bathroom, Let her have a nice peaceful bath, cook her dinner while she is in there, maybe rent her a movie she has been wanting to see, put her in bed, pop in the movie, bring her dinner, and let her relax, in peace while you take care of the kids, clean the dishes, and give her a night to herself. and then make some good dessert, and when the kids go to bed, bring you and her a piece of the dessert, and enjoy a night together in the room, if you know what I mean. I think that would be an awesome night.

P.s. I am a woman, and I think it would be great if my guy did that for me.

The hard part about that is that the baby's room joins ours upstairs, without so much as a door. "Keeping" him downstairs means he's like to hurt himself, since there's not much babyproofing and only hard floors. So for more than a few minutes, it's difficult to keep him out of that room. I do keep him upstairs while she goes downstairs to watch TV for an hour or two each night, and that's nice, but it's not really a romantic activity...

The easiest and at the same time the most difficult thing would be to really listen to her for an extended period of time. To genuinely listen to a person, any person, is an art form which few of us (including me) manage. That's why it is such a great gift and something that always will be appreciated.

Luckily, that's one thing I've always been good at.

I am married from 30 years a go Do not hurry to say what romantic things after all these years can do for your wife? you can do a lot of things, and that depend on your both Try to remimber her with all happy things lead to joine you and her together, espicially your firt dating with her. Only remimber the important things such as your ingagement day, married day and her birthday.. do not forget because she do not forgive. May be a small thing like flower can be enough, But the most important things is the Words. Try to put in your mind, when celebrate your marriage day and also till the 30th one to say I love you to her

Sounds like what i had to go through. :) If money is a problem, why not cook for her? get the kids to join in as well and you never know it would turn to be a great family activity!

My husband had the same problem that you're describing. One day after work, he came home with a movie that I had been dying to see (I found out later he had reserved it at the video store before they got it in), he had stopped on the side of the road and picked a bunch of wildflowers for me (bugs and all) then he had the kids "help" cook dinner for me. After the kids went to sleep we watched the movie. I didn't know how to act! He looked so pleased with himself.:) I'll never forget it!
