Spontaneous Romantic Ideas of Things to Do for a Boyfriend

by Todd Bowerman

Romantic activities do not have to be limited to Valentine's Day. Any day of the week is a great day to show your boyfriend that you care about him and want his life to be fun and stress-free. While your budget may play a large role in the variety of things you can spontaneously plan, there are plenty of activities from which to choose. Which activity works best for you depends entirely on your boyfriend's personality as well as your relationship.

Book a Massage

Nothing is more relaxing than a nice massage, and booking one for your stressed-out or busy boyfriend is one of the easiest ways to show him you care. Massages are available in a wide range of methods, lengths, and prices, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs. Book a couples massage at a local spa for a relaxing experience you can both enjoy.

Send a Card

If you are looking for something a little smaller, try sending your boyfriend a card with a handwritten note about what he means to you. It will be surprising to receive a card from you in the mail since he likely sees you several times a week, and he is sure to appreciate the thought and effort you put into creating it. For an extra sweet touch, try making the card yourself.

Bring Some Lunch

In a relationship, it really is the little things that make guys happy. While you may be trying to find huge, spontaneous things to spring on your man, the truth is that guys are appreciative of even the smallest gestures. The next time your boyfriend is at work, try cooking or picking up his favorite food and bringing it to him around lunchtime. This is a fantastic method for making him feel special and can also net you some romantic time in the middle of the day.

Go on an Adventure

Pop a blindfold on your boyfriend, toss him in the car and bring him to one of your favorite romantic spots in your area. A beach, park, restaurant or location from your dating past will work perfectly as romantic destinations. Once you are there, you can try to get your boyfriend to guess where you are or move right to the surprise -- an evening for just the two of you.
