When you are thinking thematically, consider creating ideas for each other that will be a surprise.

Consider skipping the coffee shop in the mornings, and storing that couple bucks away each day to purchase your partner’s favorite bottle of wine or flowers. Take your lunch to work a few days out of the week, and save the money you would have spent over the month to enjoy premier tickets to a play, or a higher end restaurant the two of you have been dreaming about going to. Do not let money stand in the way of you and your loved one having a wonderful time, at least once a month. If that means taking your laptop onto the back porch and playing songs from the last concert you both enjoyed so much over a couple of beers or homemade lattes, so be it.
