Although I think the most romantic moment I've ever had with my girlfriend was for our second anniversary. Just dinner and a movie, that was it-- we met online when we were kids, and started dating in a long-distance relationship. We're living together now, but we'd never been to just dinner and a movie before. It was awesome.
When I moved in with Frank I was upset because it didn't feel like a home without a baking cupboard. Christmas morning I was sulking as there were no presents under the tree and he pranced into the kitchen and opened one of the bottom cupboards (you know, the ones that have pans and power tools in ¬_¬ that you never venture in to...) and it was full of baking stuff.
I write a lot of poetry for my girlfriend She brought me a single rose in hospital with a red ribbon on it, which I found insanely romantic. I pretty much get swept off my feet when someone buys me a book though (a memoir). She bought me a memoir once. I find that more romantic than anything else really.
the most romantic moment I've ever had though, was that I was allowed an hour out of my hospital ward, so I spent it lying on the grass infront of a very beautiful old building. I really love decaying/run-down buildings, and this one was exceptionally beautiful. And just an hour in the sunshine in front of it, surrounded by trees with yellow flowers, lying and being held by my girlfriend, outside of the white walls of the ward, was the most wonderful moment. It was like pure peace.
I always feel it's the little things that lets me relax when I come home--which means vacuuming, washing dishes, taking out trash, etc. And I know I'm extremely fortunate to have a husband who does that for me and hopefully he understands through my thanks that it's extremely appreciated!
He already does most of the cooking, and helps with chores and shopping... and would buy me almost anything I ask for (lucky for him i am not into jewelry, clothes etc) lol... so a nice bouquet of flowers would be great or a romantic trip even better.
I think if you listen to your partner and pay attention to things they say, and how they act towards things, you get a good idea of plenty of ways to find things to make them happy. I don't just mean things they'd want you to buy for them. I've never really been with anyone like that, but it tends to be my way...although it grows a bit stale when it is one sided. The girls I dated seemed to appreciate it, but they also seemed to find it impossible to reciprocate. At least I was wise enough from the experience to know these girls were neither worth the gesture nor my time. That, though, to me is as about as romantic you can get, it gains you all sorts of potential for tons of romantic gestures.
