7 Romantic Getaway Gifts To Surprise Your Boyfriend

7 Romantic Getaway Gifts To Surprise Your Boyfriend

There are a multitude of things you can do to surprise the love of your life. One thing that I find so romantic is by taking him to some places that are luxury-styled properties – from the ocean cruises to ocean-front properties and even places overseas on various islands. When you’re in a relationship, sometimes it’s fun to take him away from his job or his friends so you can spend some of that quality time with just you and your man. However, the choice is entirely up to you – either you want to waste your time trying to figure out what to buy your boyfriend for his birthday or you can just hop into the getaway wagon and go to a place where both of you can enjoy. If you’re interested in the second route, then here are some of the getaway places I suggest you go.

Playa Fiesta Beach Club and Hotel in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

A calm, peaceful and quiet beach getaway for a couple who desires that quality time together. This place will give your boyfriend goosebumps. The rooms are both great and spacious enough to put you in a relaxed mood. Their pools are amazing because of the views. Your boyfriend will be surprised by the stunning and mesmerizing beach experience too. The fine cuisines at the resort, the lively music, and the nightlife around town will be unforgettable. You and your man will spend some of that long overdue quality time you’ve both been waiting for while enjoying each other. There are seasonal discounts as well where the rates are cheap and the romantic moods are high. The places that you can explore are historical and hidden gems. For example, there’s a magical place to walk down hand in hand and that’s the Puerto Vallarta’s el Malecon Boardwalk. Explore the boardwalk, such as sculptors, various artists’ crafts, and food vendors where you both can grab a bite to eat and a beverage as you enjoy your romantic stroll. You also have the option to hire a tour guide.

Newport Beach Cruise in California

Ideal for those sunsets and the adventure of hugging with your boyfriend while you enjoy the backdrop of Newport Beach. The cruise tickets aren’t expensive at all and there’re even the unlimited drink package tickets that can be purchased online. Take the entire cruise while you enjoy the endless quality time. The cruise departs out of Newport Bay and will cruise on by the coastline while you both view the immense bonfires which will be sparkling off the sandy beach. The skyline also lights up because of the beach coastline. The cruise will dock back but you will spend a nice romantic getaway with you and your man in such a romantic way that will definitely be unforgettable.

The Mandala Beach Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada

It is located on a man-made beach of 1.6 million gallon wave pool. There are tons of cabanas and your boyfriend will truly enjoy the relaxation of the resort in one of Nevada’s splendid places to stay in. It’s any couple’s playground with all the lights, glitz, and gambling taking place, but it’s also a romantic getaway that you’ll both enjoy as a couple. Staying at any of the top hotels and resorts will be a decision you’ll have to make because there are a multitude of them around the city. Singing, dancing, and dining are the choices, as well as the “gamble” you’ll both have to take while visiting the 24-hour entertainment of Las Vegas. There are rooftop roller coasters, magic shows, slot machines and naturally the wedding chapels. But don’t get carried away just yet; enjoy the fine dining and the luxury spas at one of the dozens and dozens of resorts that you’ll stay at as you embark in the romantic getaway. Relax and enjoy the Strip as you walk hand-in-hand because there’s always something to do in Las Vegas. It’s the gift of gifts for a great romantic getaway.

Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort in Honolulu, Hawaii

Get your luggage and packing cubes ready and visit this resort that has every amenity you both need. With all the restaurants, bars, pools, and shops, plus, movie rentals. But you’ll enjoy the perfect, scenery and picturesque beachfront, that you’ll love as you venture off. One of the most popular things to do is strolling down the beaches. The white sand and clear blue water with the opportunity to surf the best waves, if that’s what you or your man is into. Sunbathe or dine on the beach, enjoy the live entertainment, and immerse yourself with the local shopping extravaganzas. Although you have to remember that this is Hawaii so it’s a little pricier compared to other getaways. You can always enjoy the romantic candlelit dinners on one of the beachfront restaurants while listening to the live entertainment.

La Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun, Mexico

It is definitely not just another beachfront property to venture to. It’s the exclusive romantic getaway for those who need a great place to bond. Your man will love this place! Having a dreamlike place to stay at with your boyfriend will do wonders for both of you. A getaway for a couple looking for love in all the right places. It’s a popular tourist destination for any couple, so your man will be surprised he’s included as well. There are all-inclusive resorts to stay at and the great thing is that Cancun has plenty of hotels, there are even bed-and-breakfast places you both can stay at. Some of the water sports, which are the most popular, to say the least, are snorkeling, swimming, jet skiing, and fishing… to name a few. These are just the tidbits of what you both can do as a couple when you go on a getaway to Cancun.

Hilton Head Island in South Carolina

A place for those that need that enjoyment away from everything. If you’re wealthy enough, you can rent or buy any of the ocean front properties on the Hilton Head island. There’s the Forest Preserve Trail Rides that are available year round. You and your loved one can go trail-riding for an hour and experience the joys of horseback riding which goes on daily. Romantic getaways such as immersing yourself in the natural beauty of the lower countryside can benefit both of you. What’s more is the bonding between you two over drinks and live music, dining and enjoying the island can do wonders for both of you.

Settlers Crossing Bed and Breakfast in Fredericksburg, Texas

Outside in a dry desolate area of Texas, it’s a special part of Texas where millions travel through. It’s part of history and will be a wonderful surprise for your man. It’s where cowboys once traveled through, settled for awhile and moved on. But the best part is that you can go to various areas and hot spots which are the most popular for tourists to go to when they head down South. The Texas Hill Country is the “gem” of the Southwest. There are a lot of things to enjoy in the cities of Austin, Fredericksburg and San Antonio and everything in between. They are filled with vineyards, lakes, meadows, streams, very interesting towns and rolling hills. A special spot to go is the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail (16 wineries). There’s special events, wine samplings and tastings, and a lot more.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
