When was the last time you surprised your spouse by doing something special for them that they weren’t expecting? Annual holidays are a great chance to let your romantic sparks fly so to speak, which is why we offer romantic ideas for all of the major American holidays found on the calendar. With tomorrow being Independence Day we thought it would be good to highlight this for you.
We keep the ideas for husbands and wives separate to allow you to surprise your spouse whenever you want to plan something romantic. The ideas under the Only Husbands and Only Wives tabs found above are different, so you don’t have to worry about duplicating an idea.
What are your plans for the 4th of July?
Be sure to include at least one thing romantic for the two of you to anticipate and enjoy.
Here’s an idea you could plan together:
Since July has four letters and Independence Day is on the 4th, why not celebrate the number 4?
- You could plan one special date each week in July giving you a total of 4 dates to anticipate.
- Write out 4 things you love most about your spouse. Share them with each other while eating at 4Rivers BBQ, if you live in Central Florida. If not, find another restaurant that has the #4 in its name.
- Celebrate each letter in J-U-L-Y by planning 4 date nights using each letter as your inspiration. We’ve already done these for you…check out “J” Date Ideas, “U” Date Ideas, “L” Date Ideas, “Y” Date Ideas.
- Or July could be an acronym for a special theme: J-ust U-s L-oving Y-esterday. Pick one day you both remember fondly and recreate it. You could do this through videos, photos, special foods or by actually doing what you did then.
What romantic ideas have you come up with for the 4th? We would love to hear!

This is post #3 in the Ultimate Blog Challenge to post everyday in July.
Thanks for the tips, I love the idea of planning 4 date nights in the month, its easy to forget about the little things you can do like that to make everyday romantic, especially when you have two little ones running around. Thanks for the reminder 🙂 And Happy 4th!
Thanks, Kim. We pray your 4th is a memorably romantic one. 🙂
Thanks for the tips! We were just going to wash windows but this sounds alot more fun!
Ha! I’d pick romance any day over washing windows. Although you could make it romantic if there was no one else around. 😉
Great ideas Debi! Given the birth of our new son – perhaps I can take over breastfeeding duties for my wife as a type-of-romantic gesture 😉
You mention that to your wife and she may just take you up on it. 🙂
I absolutely love your last idea! Although, it would be tough to pick just one day 🙂
I agree. But what a blessing to have so many great days to choose from. Thanks for commenting.
The 4th is special to DH and me because we had our first kiss on a 4th of July lots of years ago! It is fun for us to look back and remember that time 🙂 I really like your date ideas for the 4th; it is always fun to have a special day and not feel like the only romantic holiday is Valentine’s.
How special to have such a memory on this day. Thanks for sharing and for your encouragement. It means so much to us.
Happy 4th to you and your DH.
