Sweet and Simple Ways to Surprise Your Girlfriend

When it comes to keeping your girlfriend happy, it is often the little things that matter the most. Most girls love it when their guy takes the time to show they care. Here are 15 cute ideas for romantic ways you can surprise your girlfriend or wife.

1) Wake Her up to Her Favorite Song

Start her morning right by setting her alarm clock to the special song you share, then leaving her notes around the house.
Start her morning right by setting her alarm clock to the special song you share, then leaving her notes around the house.

If you two have a “special song,” then set her alarm clock to play that song one morning. Hide little notes in places she will see during the day that have lyrics from the song. You could put one by her toothbrush, one lying on her shoe, one taped to her steering wheel, etc.

2) Change Your Cell Phone's Wallpaper

Set your wallpaper to a picture of her.

Set the wallpaper on your cell phone to a picture of her. Don't mention it. Allow her to notice it on her own and when she does, tell her you like being able to see her smile all the time even when you are apart.

3) Give Her Flowers—Both Fresh and Everlasting

Leave an everlasting rose in her bouquet.

Give her 11 real roses and one fake rose. Tell her you will love her until the last one dies.

Show her you're thinking of her by doing a chore she usually takes care of.

Do a chore for her. For example, if she usually washes dishes, surprise her one day and wash them before she gets home. If she has to wake up early to get the kids ready for school, reset her alarm and let her sleep in while you get them on the bus. Use creativity here, because I am sure there are many things your wife/girlfriend does for you every single day. Try to make sure you aren't taking advantage of them!

5) Send Her a Love Letter

Write her a love letter by hand.

      HOW TO PLEASE YOUR LOVED ONE

      Imagine the look on your loved one's face

      discovering a secret love-note

      hidden in the fridge

      or when they find an apple

      that has a ribbon tied all-around it

      placed under a pillow.

      For a very exciting reaction, leave flower-petals

      floating in the bathwater.

      Do something special for your loved one today

      trying different pleasant ‘surprises'

      and the flame of love will burn forever brightly.
