When you're trying to think of great gift ideas for her, one of the first things likely to come to mind is a romantic trip away just for the two of you. Unfortunately, this isn't always possible. While getting away for a while would be a great way to spend some quality time together, it's just not always feasible to do so. Maybe you're both career-oriented people and you can't take the necessary time away from your job. Maybe you just simply can't afford a long vacation. Whatever the case, the bottom line is that the reason you want to get away is to get closer to each other. The good news is you don't HAVE to get away to enjoy that. It's possible to "get away from it all" without really getting away at all. If, in the end, you end up closer to each other, isn't that the whole point?
For many people, present ideas are difficult to come by. This is because they get locked into one idea and refuse to entertain alternatives. However, if you really want to be able to get closer to your significant other (in all the ways that matter), then you're going to need to be flexible (in all the ways that matter)!
For instance, maybe you imagined going away for a long vacation and staying in a fancy hotel while you were there. Perhaps you envisioned leisurely mornings of the two of you lying together, reluctant to get out of bed and ordering room service. If simply being alone together is one of the main draws of your planned vacation, then consider that you can do this close to home as well.
You could arrange to spend the weekend in a romantic chateau close to where you live, and then you could get away without having to take any time off at all. You could still enjoy all the amenities of a spa-type resort and get to spend some quality time with each other as well. Isn't that what it's all about?
You can even turn a weekend at home into a "get away" of sorts as long as you get away from the usual routine of your life and devote your time to something unique and different. Consider what a weekend at home might be like if the two of you made plans to not leave the house and instead spend all your time together. Spice up the proceedings with a few luxury items like chocolate and wine, or even some elegant and exciting lingerie. That might just take you some places you've never been before!
If you really need an outside experience to seal the deal, however, there are plenty of memorable things you can do close to home without having to arrange for a long vacation. How about a picnic in the countryside with a surprise gift basket filled with her favorite things? Or a hot air balloon ride at breakfast?
The main point is, if the two of you really want to "get away from it all", you can find a way to do so that works for the two of you. Even if you can't literally get away for a long period of time, you can still spend some refreshing quality time together if you're willing to use your imagination!
