Really bring the romance to make her feel loved on her special day. Celebrate in a way that shows you put some thought and effort into making this birthday a memorable one.
Take dancing lessons together for a romantic birthday treat. Surprise her with a day or evening dancing the salsa, waltz, mambo, tango or the cha-cha. She will appreciate the time together, and whether you are great dancers or total beginners, the experience itself will build unity between you two and bring some laughs. Have fun with it, step out and show her the romance of a dancing adventure together. Take a group class or private lessons.
If you ever have had the opportunity to ride a traditional gondola down the water canals of Venice, Italy, you would understand how romantic the experience is. Gondola rides, inspired by Venice, Italy, are also offered in many locations around the U.S. Pack some wine or champagne, strawberries and chocolate and take her on a romantic sunset gondola ride. Or, some gondolas provide delicious Italian treats such as prosciutto, tomatoes, mozzarella and dessert. Bring a blanket and cozy up together as you glide over the waters and enjoy the scenery. The gondolier will also serenade you or play classic Italian music to add to the romantic ambiance.
