Any relationship expert or marriage counsellor will tell you the importance of spending quality time with your partner.

Sometimes, due to schedule conflicts or income limitations, it is difficult to take each other on a romantic getaway or cruise. It doesn’t stop you from spending romantic time together.

Plan a staycation. What exactly is a “staycation”? It’s a vacation that you plan—at home.

We can help you if the idea of it doesn’t seem romantic or all that exciting. With a few dollars and a bit of time and innovation, you’ll be surprised by how much you can enjoy each other—from the comfort of your own house (and city).

Switch off all technologies

All technology must be turned offvia

First things first, this tip is free. Plan to turn off your electronic devices before you do anything. If you have kids, this is the only exception. In this case, you can leave your phone on vibrate to allow the people who are watching the children to reach you. Otherwise, anything that requires a plug and outlet can wait—until your staycation is over.

Rose petals can be thrown away
