They say that money can’t buy love and happiness. That is not necessarily true, but it isn’t false either. A lot of things are easier with money, and that includes love and romance.
Money can allow you to devote time to your partner and buy them something that would make them feel loved and appreciated. On the other hand, the lack of money is stressful and can have a detrimental effect on a person’s state of mind.
But having money just helps, love is not really about money, at least most of the time it isn’t.
A man’s home is his castle, but if you can’t afford servants, then it’s more of a cabin in the woods than a castle. However, it shouldn’t harm a woman’s pride too much to act like a real servant, for at least a day, and serve their man.
Act like a proper maid and pour beer in a glass and watch his favorite shows (even if you hate watching half-naked grown men hitting each other with a steel chair).
If you are a modern woman and find it too demeaning to “serve” your partner in such a way, but want to show your appreciation without costing too much, then here are other romantic ideas for him.
Cook his favorite dish
Write him an old-fashioned Love Letter
Treat him to where he took you on your first date
Text him pretending to be strangers (Make sure he knows it’s you)
Feed each other his favorite sweet or pastry
Cook a new unknown cuisine together
Experiment with cocktails together

Jog, bike, hike together
Take a Groupon Buffet or Day trip tour of the city
Learn local history at a museum
Go on a Street Food Binge

Make sure to consider his tastes, interests, and hobbies before picking an activity. Go to something that he might appreciate.
It has to be something he is already interested in but does not have the time to indulge due to other responsibilities. Romantic ideas for him should consider your man’s interests, and if you can learn to love it yourself, it would be great.
However, do not plan a date around what you think he would enjoy because YOU like it. It should be the other way around, keep that in mind.
Romantic ideas for him in the bedroom
Romance and sex are intertwined. They are like two branches of the same tree. Men are always interested in sex; unfortunately, it is sex per se, and not necessarily sex with you.
Don’t take it to heart. It is just a man’s nature. Having one promise fidelity to you is already a big deal. A lot of men go through their entire lives, not taking such responsibilities and commitment.
But, if your man is more than willing to commit his life and future with you, then we can show our appreciation in many ways, including in bed.
So, here are some sexy romantic ideas for him that’s easy on the wallet.
Buy sexy lingerie
Surprising your man with new sets of sexy lingerie is a simple, but effective romantic night ideas for him.
A lot of men are stimulated by suggestive clothes and nighties are some of the most suggestive attire out there. He may or may not comment on it.
Don’t worry about it if he doesn’t take the bait, you can always use your moves to keep him interested.
Good morning fellatio
Self-explanatory! It’s every man’s fantasy.
If you can buy costumes, it would be better.
Practice acting like an innocent schoolgirl, a dominatrix, a caring nurse, energetic cheerleader, and other usual porn tropes to excite him in different ways than your typical approaches. (Use makeup and hairstyles)
This is one of the most effective romantic sexual ideas for him that you can start early in the day by texting him and sending him photos of your new “persona” to get him excited.
Bring alcohol to bed
Men know it’s a gift when a woman brings a drink to bed. It helps set the mood and relaxes the body before a good romp in the sack.
If you can set the mood in other ways such as lighting, scents, and music. So much better. It should be done on non-special days when he is not expecting anything.
If it’s on birthdays, holidays, and other similar days, it still works, but alcohol in bed surprise on ordinary days is more effective.
Learn massage techniques
Everyone loves getting a massage. If you can learn massage techniques (there are lessons on Youtube) and apply it to your man.
