In case you haven’t heard…April is “Couples’ Appreciation Month”. So, even if you’re getting a late start, there’s still time to show your partner all the reasons you still love, adore, and APPRECIATE them.

AND…I’ve got your back in case you’re having a hard time coming up with some ideas. Here are 5 great tips I discovered from Jen Adams LMT, over at Jubilee Healing Arts.

First tip that Jen shares is to, is that you don’t have to do anything flashy. In other words, you know, we’re used to doing the romantic stuff on Valentine’s Day or birthdays or holidays, but for Couples’ Appreciation month, we can just do really simple, low-key things that communicate so much, so deeply how we love and appreciate our partners. One thing Jen suggests is to order in dinner and eat it together by candlelight. So, not very flashy, but it can sure communicate deep appreciation to each other.

Second tip is to make it sentimental, or I would translate that into make it romantic. Now you probably wouldn’t know it by looking at me, but I’m a huge romantic at heart. I love doing romance, making things special for my partner. So, do sentimental romantic things for one another; leave notes, or, you know, give your partner a flower a day for the month or whatever you can think of. Again, doesn’t have to be flashy (tip number one), and it can be so romantic.

So sentimental tip number three is to create new memories. We don’t have to rely on the same old thing that we do every Valentine’s day or birthday or whatever, but we can create new memories.

One suggestion, Jen gives, and I would never have thought of this in a million years, is to plan a scavenger hunt that you could do together. Now, like I said, I’m not playful like that, so that would not come up normally for me. At the same time, I can imagine that it could be so much fun and create such a wonderful connection and memory and show appreciation like nothing else to our partner. Of course, that assumes that your partner has that same sense of fun and playfulness. If not, you can come up with a different kind of activity, but again, make it something that will create a new memory for the two of you.

Fourth, Jen says keep things simple and I totally resonate with this. Just keep things simple. The examples that she’s given that I have shared with you are really just simple things that we can do.

Another suggestion on this tip would be to think of something, maybe a chore around the house that your partner does, but really doesn’t enjoy. It’s really a chore and then do that for your partner for the month, or if it’s something significant enough and you can afford it, pay to have somebody come in and do it for the two of you for the month.

So keep things simple.

Finally, tip number five is to do things together.

Now this is one that I have a especially fond place in my heart for. A previous partner of mine loved it when I would go grocery shopping with her and loved it even more if we would hold hands, as we made our way up and down the aisles, collecting our groceries. It just made for such a wonderful time, a time of connection, of appreciation and togetherness. And then we would get home, put the groceries away, and sometimes we would enjoy something even more special together!

So do things together that maybe you normally wouldn’t do.

This is especially important for those of you who are younger and you maybe have kids still at home and you have really busy lives. It can be kind of challenging to carve out time, to go away and do something together, or go out for a evening, or away or a weekend. You can do things like grocery shop together, or run errands together and make that a time of connection and appreciation.

So to recap, Jen Adams’ five tips for Couples’ Appreciation month are, first of all, you don’t have to be flashy. Second of all, make it sentimental, or as I translate that, romantic. Thirdly, create new memories. Fourthly, keep things simple and fifthly do things together.
