5 Romantic Ideas for Celebrating National Romance Month

Why is August the National Romance Month?

That’s right! August is National Romance Month, and Romance Awareness Day is August 14th – exactly six months from Valentine’s Day. National Romance Month serves as a prompt to check in on your relationship; it’s also a reminder to celebrate love and intimacy with your partner throughout the year, not just on Valentine’s Day. The timing couldn’t be better as August is nestled between the winding down of summer vacations and activities and the wind-up to the Holiday season. It’s a moment of respite and the perfect month to focus on your relationship.

How to Observe National Romance Month

Use this time to take a pause in your busy life to appreciate your partner, show gratitude, and enjoy the closeness and companionship you have. Do this by making an effort to be more romantic and create special moments that will reaffirm your love for each other. For inspiration on romantic activities to do during National Romance Month, keep reading!

Bring Home a Bouquet of Gorgeous, Fresh Flowers

There’s nothing better than giving someone beautiful flowers to show how much you love them. Red roses, in particular, are a great choice because they symbolize love, passion, and desire. The color red, in general, represents love, so you can select other red blooms such as Peruvian lilies, mums, daisies, poppies, or calla lilies. Sprinkle in several white flowers like gardenias, stargazer lilies, and anemones for a truly stunning and fragrant bouquet.

Create memories by going on a quick getaway to someplace new. A change of scenery does wonders for reigniting passion and bringing people closer together.

See a Live Band

Get moving to a great cover band that plays your favorite songs or discover new music together. Physical activities like dancing produce “feel good” endorphins which increase your passion for one another.

Do Something Adventurous

Get the adrenaline flowing and ignite passion with adventurous activities like white water rafting, riding roller coasters, or skydiving.

Have a cuddle session in front of a roaring fireplace, or bask in the warmth and beauty of a romantic outdoor bonfire just enjoying each other’s company.

Stay Connected With Romantic Gestures

Making it a point to connect with your partner by adding more romance will only strengthen your relationship. Whether you’ve been together 5 years or 50 years, keeping the embers of love burning with romance is essential. And, it’s easy! Romantic gestures don’t always have to be big, as small displays of love are just as important.

Small Romantic Gestures that Make a BIG Impact:

  • Holding hands
  • Leaving love notes
  • Watching a movie together
  • Checking in with each other during the day
  • A daily “good morning” kiss
  • Saying “good night” every night
  • A shoulder rub
  • Flowers “just because”

Embrace Romance

Embrace romance and celebrate it – not just during romantic holidays but all year round. Being romantic is about expressing your love and dedication to someone in a thoughtful and affectionate manner. Grand romantic gestures are always a boon to a relationship and are essential to maintaining passion. Small romantic gestures performed more frequently, though, are just as, if not more, important. And one of the simplest yet sincere and welcome romantic gestures is giving your loved one flowers. Romance and flowers go hand in hand.
