And to make sure that the relationship is indeed headed towards this direction, couples must exert some effort. That is why, from time to time, it is essential that both in the relationship would go the extra mile and do something special for the other half. It doesn’t need to cost you a lot either. As long as the gesture is sincere, your other half is bound to appreciate it.

To enlighten you on ways to keep the spark alive without jeopardizing your savings account, take a look at this list and be inspired.

Unleash the chef in you

This is a no-brainer. Man or woman, everyone loves to eat. If you don’t believe this, just look outside and see the countless restaurants and other food places sprouting everywhere. But, you and your hubby don’t need to always dine at classy restaurants to have an enjoyable experience. All you need is to start honing your cooking skills, if you still haven’t. So that for your next date you could prepare your hubby’s favourite meals and desserts. Now, this is way cheaper than dining out, isn’t it?

At-home spa experience

With the daily stress that we all face, it would sure be nice to get pampered once in a while. And who better to receive your tender pampering than your beloved half. So create that relaxing ambience at his/her place and massage all his/her tension and worries away. With this touching gesture, your other half might just return the favour as well.

Just a message away

Couples aren’t always together. After all, you are two individuals and as such you each have your own set of things that keep you busy. But no matter how busy your day gets, always make sure to keep the communication open and never miss the chance to tell your other half how much you love him/her. A simple text or instant message might seem trivial, but the mere act of reminding your beloved just how dear he/she is to you and that you’re thinking of him/her is nevertheless a great way to keep the love alive.
