Decide What Type of Getaway You Want

There are loads of options when it comes to what kind of getaway you’d like to go on, and ultimately it comes down to your own tastes.

If you and your partner love cozy nights by the fire, it’s probably not going to blow your partner away if you take them on a sunny cruise or vice versa.

Think about the best times you’ve had together and how you could recreate them.

Don’t Break the Bank

We get it; you want to spoil your partner and show them how much you love them, but going on an extravagant getaway that puts you in debt is not the way to do this. It’s a good idea to set a romantic getaway budget.

The most valuable thing you can give your partner is your time, so rather than spending over the odds to try and impress them, spend on the small details instead.

Think of activities for couples you can do together that will enhance your romance and intimacy, rather than going all out on extravagance.

Don’t Just Pick the Most Popular Option

It’s easy to google “best romantic getaway destination” and book the highest-rated hotel.

While it might initially impress your partner, it might become quite obvious that you haven’t gone for something that appeals to you both beyond the fact that it’s “nice”.

Look at reviews on all sorts of different getaways and if one of the positive reviews resonates with you and what you enjoy, shortlist it!

Do All the Hard Work

Not everybody likes surprises, but at the same time, nobody wants to be told they’re going on a getaway and then have to do all the booking and planning.

To really sweep your partner off their feet, do the leg work so that when it comes to revealing where you’re going, they can get excited in the knowledge that they can just get up and go!

If your partner does like surprises, don’t tell them a thing and let them figure it out!
