Romantic Things to Do For Bae, Based On The Five Love Languages

If you’re in a relationship and you have no idea what your partner’s love languages are, you need to fix up immediately. Oh— and for those who have no idea what love languages are, here’s a quick lesson- love languages refer to the five ways through which people give and receive love.

They are words of affirmation, receiving gifts, quality time, physical touch and acts of service.
So, if you want to do something special this Valentine’s Day, you can do it through the lens of your loved one’s love language(s):

Receiving Gifts

Everyone loves receiving gifts— especially meaningful ones. This Valentine’s Day, be intentional with the gifts you give. Think of something your partner needs, something they’ve mentioned in passing, something that signifies your love and truly shows that you are an attentive, caring partner.

Here are some ideas:

  • Clothes
  • Personalised Jewellery
  • Skincare Products
  • Perfumes
  • Art supplies
  • Books
  • Tech Products, and more.

Whatever you decide upon, make sure it is well-thought-out and within your budget.

Here are some ideas:

  • Watch a movie together
  • Try out a new recipe together and make a special meal
  • Have a romantic date
  • Go on a romantic, COVID-friendly getaway
  • Plan a spa date
  • Go for a practical art & design date

Acts of Service

Actions speak louder than words, after all. A great way to express your love for your partner is to show them, literally. Help them meet a need, tick something off their bucket list, help them fix something, help them ease any burden they have and do something thoughtful and meaningful that you know will make them smile.
