Fun Ways to Speak Their Love Language This August for Romance Month

Did you know that there is a whole month dedicated to romance? We’re not talking about February or Valentine’s Day; we’re talking about Romance Awareness Month, which comes around every August. Founded by Eileen Buchheim, Romance Month marks the halfway point to Valentine’s Day and reminds couples to prioritize their relationship and make their partner feel special and loved. Romance isn’t reserved for special occasions, anniversaries, holidays, or birthdays but is something that should be celebrated all year long. That’s why your friends here at Bosland’s Flower Shop are honoring Romance Month and encouraging you to say “I love you” through simple yet romantic surprises like sending flowers.

Ways to Celebrate Romance Month and Speak Your Partner’s Love Language

Celebrating romance and showing your partner how much you appreciate, care for, and love them all starts with speaking their love language. Dr. Gary Chapman introduced The 5 Love Languages to help couples connect in truly meaningful ways. When we speak our significant other’s love language through acts of service, words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch, we can make them feel not only loved, but seen, heard, and respected.

Leave Love Notes – Words of Affirmation

Whether you stick post-it notes around the home for them to find as they get ready for the day or leave a long love note on their pillow so they can begin their day with a full heart, they will surely be touched by your thoughtfulness and romance. From funny pictures that make them laugh to reminders of their beauty and kindness, you can ensure a perfect start to their morning.

Enjoy a Long Weekend Away – Quality Time

Oftentimes, social media, work, kids, pets, friends, and our everyday routines can distract us from our partners and the romance that is right in front of us. Planning a weekend getaway to a new place that you can explore together or your favorite vacation spot that holds wonderful memories for both of you is a fantastic way to quiet distractions and let yourselves fall in love all over again.

Go Dancing – Physical Touch

Music can be pretty powerful, especially when paired with movement and your favorite dance partner. If dancing in public seems frightening, try holding hands and swaying to a romantic ballad, or crank up the tunes in the kitchen for just the two of you. Hold them close, dip, groove, twirl, and embrace for a fun way to reignite that spark.

Send Flowers – Receiving Gifts

There are so many ways to express your love and appreciation for someone, but the language of flowers is perhaps our favorite way to say “I love you.” Flowers are timeless, beautiful, and endlessly romantic, whether a symbolic bloom like the classic rose or a collection of passionate red stems. Each flower type and petal color has a unique meaning that not only expresses love but encouragement, adoration, gratitude, joy, and so much more.

Tackle the Chores Together – Acts of Service

We know that a deep clean of your home doesn’t sound like the ideal date night, but giving your partner a hand with daily, weekly, and monthly chores might be the perfect way to speak their love language. Crank up your favorite tunes, dance, and sing while you mop, scrub, and fold laundry. Sometimes, it isn’t about what you’re doing but who you are doing it for.

Plan a Weekly Dinner Date – All Five Love Languages

If you are unsure which love language your partner identifies with, hit them all at once by planning a weekly dinner date. Pick one day out of the week where you cook dinner or drive to a favorite restaurant, present them with flowers, light candles, hold hands across the table, turn off your cell phones, tell them all the things you love about them, and enjoy a romantic evening together.

Finding someone you can count on and connect with is certainly something to celebrate, so why wait for Valentine’s Day to make them feel special and loved? When words escape you, flowers from Bosland’s Flower Shop will always say it beautifully through symbolism and the language of flowers.
