Why is August the National Romance Month?
That’s right! August is National Romance Month, and Romance Awareness Day is August 14th – exactly six months from Valentine’s Day. National Romance Month serves as a prompt to check in on your relationship; it’s also a reminder to celebrate love and intimacy with your partner throughout the year, not just on Valentine’s Day. The timing couldn’t be better as August is nestled between the winding down of summer vacations and activities and the wind-up to the Holiday season. It’s a moment of respite and the perfect month to focus on your relationship.
How to Observe National Romance Month
Use this time to take a pause in your busy life to appreciate your partner, show gratitude, and enjoy the closeness and companionship you have. Do this by making an effort to be more romantic and create special moments that will reaffirm your love for each other.

LUSH AND LOVELY
Top 5 Ways to Celebrate Romance Month
Bring Home a Bouquet of Gorgeous, Fresh Flowers
One of our favorite ways to reignite that romantic spark is by surprising your partner with a dazzling and symbolic bouquet of flowers. When fresh-cut blooms are artistically arranged in a vase of fresh water and properly taken care of, they can last a few weeks. Any time you or your significant other take a moment to stop and smell the flowers and admire their beauty, that romantic spark will continue burning.
Have a Cozy Dinner In
Making your everyday routine special can start with a romantic dinner date. If you like to eat at home, cook their favorite meal, set the table with candles, a floral centerpiece, and your best dishes. A cozy night in with a bottle of wine and delicious dessert can be just as memorable and lovely as an evening out.
Plan a Weekend Away
A trip out of town that offers a change of scenery and an escape from daily distractions might be what your relationship needs to enhance passion and romance. Reconnect with your partner by exploring a new place or visiting a familiar location and making new memories, just the two of you.
Get a Couples Massage
It can be quite challenging to show up for your partner if you are feeling stressed or exhausted. Coordinating an afternoon of pampering, complete with a couple’s massage, for you and your significant other can be a romantic way to ensure you both feel calm, relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to prioritize one another.
Relax by a Fire
On a warm summer evening, lighting a campfire fire in the backyard and cuddling with your partner under a blanket is picture-perfect romantic. With the crickets and insects chirping and the roaring and crackle of the fire as your soundtrack, there is nothing for you to do except soak it all in and just be in the moment.
Stay Connected With Romantic Gestures
Instead of relying on big date ideas to keep your romance alive, try incorporating a few simple yet effective romantic gestures into your everyday life. Whether your relationship is a few months old or a few decades old, it is crucial to connect with your partner each day.
Small Romantic Gestures that Make a BIG Impact:
- Holding hands
- Leaving love notes
- Watching a movie together
- Checking in with each other during the day
- A daily “good morning” kiss
- Saying “good night” every night
- A shoulder rub
- Flowers “just because”
A MOMENT IN TIME
Keep your romance alive, and embrace your love all August long! Finding that one person who hears you loud and clear, sees your beauty every moment of every day, adores you like no other, and connects with you in deep, personal, and passionate ways is something to celebrate each day of the year. So, browse our collection at Expression Unlimited for spectacular flowers for all occasions, from anniversaries and holidays to “just because.”
