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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
