Small Things Count in Romance

Honestly, it’s a small thing.  I’m almost ashamed to admit it.

I’m out of town, staying at a Hampton Inn. I like staying at Hampton Inns.

  1. Breakfast is included in the price of admission,
  2. I get Hilton Honors points, and
  3. They serve freshly baked cookies every evening.

That’s a nice little gift for the end of a long day. It makes a mental transition between the pressure of a 12-hour, non-stop day and evening.

Tonight, I went to the front desk for my cookie – the cookie tray was bare. The guy at the front desk said they’d gone fast. There wasn’t one for me.

Don’t they know how many guests will lodge tonight? Bake a cookie for each. I’m not expecting crème brûlée. And I’m a Hilton Honors members.

Why didn’t they have a little 25¢ cookie gift for me?

We all enjoy getting gifts and feeling special. That’s’ part of the reason we like to be romanced. Gifts are one of the ways to romance our sweetheart.  It makes your sweetheart feel special. It lets your sweetheart know you took time from your busy day to think about finding a gift to say, “You’re so special to me, I made time to find this gift to let you know what you mean to me.”

Like this evening’s cookie, the gift for your sweetheart doesn’t have to be grandiose. It’s often little gifts which we cherish more than extravagant ones. Small gifts:

  • Allow you to purchase one more frequently;
  • Are easier to hide as a surprise; and
  • Take up less space;

If your sweetheart prefers to be romanced with gifts, take a couple minutes and find something to give your sweetheart this evening. Unlike my 25¢ cent cookie, it will be unexpected and won’t disappoint. Robert
