Romantic October Holidays
October is the month to spook up your romance because even Halloween can become a romantic holiday!
October 5 - Do Something Nice Day
Do something nice for your significant other today -- remember that the little things usually mean the most!
October 6 - World Card Making Day
Take a few moments and send your sweetie a card today for World Card Making Day
. Seeing as it has the word making
in the title, the idea is to create a hand-made card. Even if it's just a basic heart-shaped card
with a few words of love, it's the thoughtfulness that counts here. Even if you don't have a creative bone in your body, you can create this card and add in a simple 'I Love You'.
October 6 - Come and Take It Day
Ladies, today is the day to really surprise your guy. Get on some sexy lingerie then tell him to come in and take you now! ;)
October 7 - Send a Smile Day
Give your sweetie a smile when you wake up, then send him/her smiles throughout the day. Put smiley face stickers around the house (on her purse, in his briefcase, etc) or send a :-) via email, IM, or text message.
October 10 - Tuxedo Day
Get reservations at a 5-star restaurant, done your formal wear, rent a limo, and head out for an incredibly romantic night on the town. Want to make it even more special? Book the honeymoon suite at a hotel for the night and head there after dinner.
October 10 - Shampoo Day
This may not seem like the most romantic of days, but you'll be pleasantly surprised. Pick up a bottle of sensual shampoo, fill up the tub, and soak in the tub together. Washing each other's hair is surprisingly sexy and sensual.
