They say women are more romantic than men. Frankly, there is no study to back this statement; after all, how can emotions be gender specific? However, when you come up with romantic gestures for her, you can be certain that your girlfriend feels a little extra special.
Every woman needs to be told that she is loved, cared for and valued. It doesn’t matter if she is super independent or has a stern, ‘don’t mess with me’ vibe. What is important is the man she loves, loves her back and is not hesitant to show it.
21 Uncommon Gestures For Her
Making a woman feel special isn’t just about showering her with gifts, planning a grand celebration or constantly giving her compliments but it’s all about putting some feeling or emotions to what you do for her.
All men have it in them to be romantic so don’t make the excuse that you don’t know what to do and that going overboard on romantic gestures for her seems rather lame in this day and age!
There is anything ‘lame’ or ‘non-macho’ about these cutesy, lovey-dovey gestures. If you are short of ideas, here are 21 unique ways in which you can make her blush and smile.
1. Pick her up and drop her
Yes, she can drive. Yes, the date venue is close to her house. Yes, she doesn’t need a man to help her reach her destination.
Even then, go and pick her up before the date and drop her home safe and sound after a date. It is just one of those old-fashioned wonderful romantic gestures for her that shows you care.

2. Take her out for breakfast
There is something adorable about a man cooking up a messy breakfast for his woman. It need not be anything elaborate but just waking up before she does and serving her coffee and croissants can melt her heart.
But we have another idea. Make her get out of bed and take her to a place where you can see a beautiful sunrise. Treat her to an amazing breakfast at a local place after that.
3. Give her a treat after a stressful day at work
She has told you she has had a lousy day at work. How about easing her stress by welcoming her home with a warm dinner, either made by you or ordered from her favourite takeaway and opening a bottle of wine?
Indulge in such thoughtful romantic gestures for her and she will be forever grateful to you.
4. Offer help with the chores
She might be the most efficient domestic goddess but even she needs a bit of a break every now and then. Offer to do her chores one weekend – be it buying groceries or helping in the garden or running small errands.
It’s a like godsend for a woman who has to manage everything on her own. And yes, seeing a man running around for domestic duties is rather romantic for women!
5. Surprise her with PDA
Don’t overdo the PDA if she is the kind to get embarrassed soon. But giving her a cuddle or putting an arm around her casually during a movie session or giving her a slight peck when she’s asking for your opinion during a shopping spree work like magic.
It’s really a cute thing to do with your girlfriend. In fact, these spontaneous romantic gestures for her add to the spice of your relationship.
6. Be protective
There is a difference in being protective and being controlling. Know the difference please! Show your concerned, protective side by checking in on her when she’s late from work.
Ensuring she’s carrying an umbrella if she has to travel during rains or that she reaches safely when she’s out. Romance means showing concern too.
7. Take note of her rituals and habits
Nothing can be a more heartwarming romantic gesture for her than her man taking care of the smaller details. If she stays away from you and spends a night at yours, ensure that your home is equipped with things you know she needs – maybe a lip balm, body cream or some similar ladies toiletries!
Stock the things she may like, from her favourite snack or her fave movie.
8. Buy her concert tickets of her favourite artist
This wonderful romantic gesture for her will make her a fan for life. Make a note of the interesting activities in town, preferably concerts or sporting matches (depending on her interest) and surprise her with a front row ticket.
Watch her fall for you all over again as she proudly boasts about your special gift for her in front of her friends.

9. Write love notes
Did you just say eww, who does that? Well, guys who love their girls do! Write sticky notes with funny memes, messages or cute one-liners and paste them in unexpected places for her to find.
Make it a special day or night by making a game of it where one note leads to another with a surprise at the end. Just be a bit creative!
10. Buy small gifts on regular days
Romantic gestures for her need not be grand or expensive. In between the big special gifts that you plan for her birthday or anniversary, spoil her with the little things that may seem silly to you but matter to her!
Fenty Beauty’s latest red lipstick or Ted Baker’s mobile cover, for instance. Just look up her latest Instagram posts or a fashion mag to get some inspiration if you are clueless or you can choose from here.
11. Plan a perfect date
When you have been dating for a while, you know what her tastes are. Sometimes, women like men to take the lead in planning the perfect date. So go ahead and plan one.
Keep it a secret till the end and take her out to a new place she’s been dying to try with the elements you know she will love. A bit of research on the hotspots in town will help you zero in on the venue.
12. Buying her a souvenir
We are leading increasingly busy lives that leave less time for love. But you can always indulge in cute romantic gestures for her even when you are not together.
For instance, if your job involves a lot of travelling, pick up souvenirs or little gifts to give her on your return. It’s a small step to assure her that she’s always on your mind.
13. Get her what she needs
When you get her something she badly needs, love turns into gratitude. Has she been complaining about her battery running out all the time?
Get her a battery pack the next time you meet her. Offer to fix her cable or buy her a gadget that lessens her stress at work. Give her things that she needs as opposed to what you think she lacks.
14. Whisk her off to a stay-cay
Those big holidays and a lovely grand trip to Italy can wait until the vaccine arrives. Until then, plan a weekend staycation for her at a resort in town.
Too much work from home can be bad for health and boring too, so what better surprise than a romantic gesture for her. Take her away for a short and sweet trip.

15. Wear what she’s gifted you
When you plan a big night out, deliberately wear the shirt or perfume that she’s gifted you. Make it a point to thank her for it again and say how much you loved it.
As a couple, you might be exchanging gifts regularly yet when you show you value what you receive from her, the love and warmth increases.
16. Organise a surprise party
Agreed, you may not like all of her friends or her entire family but make an effort to be nice to them. Organise a surprise party on her birthday and invite all of them, including the cousin she has not seen in ages.
We can imagine the look of her face when the lights go on. Ensure she doesn’t get a whiff of your planned surprise. This is a proven way to show her you love her.
17. Be chivalrous
No, chivalry is not dead. Even in the day and age of equality matters of etiquette like opening the door or pulling the chair is not dead.
You don’t have to stop being a gentleman just because you don’t have to impress her any longer. If you want to keep your love alive, treat it every day like a new romance.
18. Be her cheerleader
Never hesitate to show how proud you are of her. Be it a shout-out on social media or complimenting her in front of others, let the world know that you root for her.
Of course, do not overdo this as it can come across as a show-off but this wonderful romantic gesture for her will make her value what the two of you share.

19. Work out with her
Couples work out is a lot of fun. Signing up for a Zumba class or a Couples Yoga session can be a fun romantic gesture for her that also makes for an enjoyable date session.
If both of you are health freaks, set fitness goals together and encourage each other to meet them. Couples that gym together, stay together! (Just sayin’!) .
20. Touch her
Keep the chemistry between the two of you alive by touching her and remaining close to her. Play with her hair when you are sitting close. Clasp her hand when you are out for a walk.
Spoon feed her a little at a dinner. Small romantic gestures for her will increase the connection that the two of you already share.
21. Send her romantic texts
Always stay connected through texts. An ‘I miss you’ or a ‘Thinking of you’ text send amidst a hectic work day can make her happy even on a hectic day. Even if for a few seconds, a funny or sexy text acts like a pleasant distraction.
This doesn’t mean you bombard or disturb her with calls and messages, just that a sexy reminder for what’s in store increases anticipation.
When you are in a relationship, you can’t afford to be NOT romantic. Every woman (and even man) needs affection and that affection does not just mean sex or occasional gifts. There is a lot more to a relationship than just the physical or even the deeply emotional and it’s time you be in control of your bond by taking the lead and increasing the RQ – romantic quotient to it.
