Romantic birthday gifts, whether for a boy or girl friend, husband or wife, will be the ones remembered and cherished for years even after that special day. When you are thinking of presenting romantic birthday gifts, there is a wide variety to choose from. The best romantic birthday gifts are those that show you know something personal and special about each other. While presenting romantic birthday gifts it's not just what you give, but how you give it that matters most. For the ultimate impact, creativity is more important than price.
When you are able to present something romantic that is in keeping with a person's hobbies, interests, habits or personal characteristics, you are giving one of the best birthday gifts that person could receive. Sometimes a simple, loving personal message can convert nearly any idea into a romantic birthday gift. Flowers are still a great favorite among the ladies. Opt for a different variety instead of bringing her the usual one. In the case of men, homemade romantic dinners featuring great ambiance, good music and favorite dishes are ideal romantic birthday gifts.
Personalized photo calendars, picture frames, candle holders, champagne bottles, wine gift sets, shower and moisturizing gels, bath salts and diamond jewelry are popular romantic birthday gifts. Other great ideas for romantic birthday gifts that work quite well with couples include teddy bears, surprise vacations or trips to a special place that holds significance to both of you, poems rolled in a scroll with a ribbon or framed in a beautiful silver or black frame, love coupons, chocolate kisses, romantic gift baskets, perfumes and fragrances, scented candles, sexy lingerie, romantic games and decorative nightlights. Kama Sutra products such as lotions, powders, massage creams and oils and lubricants are also very popular.

|Sometimes we don't even know how deep mental wounds are.|
Your partner might have some deep wounds from childhood or past relationships. These are important things to understand if you are trusted with them. If your partner opens up to you and expresses them to you, you have a great responsibility to uphold. Now you must try to understand why he/she feels the way he/she does. When he/she pulls away from you, it might be because he/she is stuck in that moment or it resurfaces some manner. It could be an action, or it could be other things like a smell or the vision of something. Your position in this is to help your partner heal and be there for him/her in the greatest capacity. You might just need to hold him/her or let him/her have space. Always ask if he/she would like to talk about it. If not, don't push. Let it come naturally and when the time is right. Helping your partner heal from these wounds will depend on how deep the wounds are. Be supportive and understanding and in time he/she will come to you and let them out to you.

I love to plan little romantic getaways for my husband and I. He works a high stress job outside of the home and I work a high stress job in the home. Therefore, I feel it is necessary for our sanity that we get away for a couple of days and enjoy being married to each other.
For those of you who are among the "romance challenged", I thought it would be nice to share my five easy steps for a romantic getaway to take some of the hassle out of planning your own adventure with that significant other.
1. Budget and plan the destination. Pick a place that has not only a romantic atmosphere but also has a lot to offer in both scenery as well as adventure. It should also offer a price tag that is in your budget range. While most people will tell you that you can't put a price tag on love, there are limits to taking a lovely trip with that special person. You should plan for a special event along your trip, for example: a picnic at a specified spot along the way, a horseback riding trip, or a romantic sunset interlude on the beach.
2. Keep it a secret from that special person so they will be surprised, and charmed by the fact that you went to the trouble of planning the whole trip. Pack the standard things you will need on your trip for yourself and your loved one. Though you should keep in mind the climate of your destination and the activities you will be engaging in while there. Make sure your schedules are cleared for the trip without letting on that you have planned the whole thing. Whatever you do don't use an excuse that can backfire on you!
3. Have everything ready and confirmed. Pack the car the night before your trip if you're going to drive, and or have the bags waiting if you're going to fly. Enlist the help of a friend if you are going to the airport. Arrange for them to not only drop you off but pick you up when you return to avoid those parking fees and rental situations.
4. Take the bare minimum in the way of technology; I advise taking a cell phone and an MP3 player only. The cell phone is for emergency use only! No checking your social networking accounts. The MP3 player is for music to set the mood.
5. Make this trip about your loved one; show them how you feel about them. Above all else have fun and enjoy spending time with the one you love.
With these 5 easy tips you should be able to plan a romantic yet affordable trip to spend time with your significant other. I hope you enjoy and have fun on your romantic getaway.

Have you ever had one of those days where it seems your partner is really excited about making love and you just don't seem to be in the mood? This can be a tricky situation for the both of you. I personally think this is an area that trust comes to the fore front. You have to express you mood to your partner and then you have to trust them to either one say okay or to trust in the fact that they will take the time to get you in the mood. Slowly helping you rise to the occasion and building your libido slowly. Long extended foreplay and passionate kisses can sometimes change the mood. This is where you have to TRUST your partner, give them the chance to turn you on! You know you love them, that is not the question and they know you love them. Each level of intimacy is a magical moment in time and every one of those magical moments you miss, is one you cannot get back. Next time this happens put a little trust in the true passion you have for your partner. Then enjoy the magic.

|Lust is a must in a relationship.|
When we first started our relationship we didn't worry about how we felt about our partner. Part of that feeling was lust in the beginning. You both the loved the raw passion and the no hold bar method of what happened when you saw each other. Now however, as your relationship has become a more stable and supportive function in your life we sometimes forget that unbridled passion that we enjoyed at the beginning of the relationship. When is the last time you took off your partners clothes? When is the last time the two of you almost fell down because you couldn't stop kissing? When is the last time that you came through the door and drug each other to the bedroom? Why in the hell are you not doing that now? I would make your relationship a more passionate place. You can bring that lust back into your relationship without hurting you relationship. You know each other so much better now but does that mean you can't rip each others clothes off? I think it means you have more of a reason to rip those clothes off. Tonight show your partner that you still lust after them, even though you love them!
