Ange and Mike know spending quality time together as a couple is important. They make it a priority by booking in advance and putting a little aside each pay day....
After using your services earlier this year, it’s great to be in your capable hands again for our getaway in October. I think it’s fabulous that you give us the opportunity to book in advance and pay off our needed and deserved romantic treats via a payment plan. It definitely makes it more affordable when you are adding it into the rest of your bills instead of trying to find a lump sum! Thanks heaps and keep up the great work.
Shuchi and Russell wanted somewhere simple but special to celebrate their 2nd anniversary. We had just the place...
Firstly, Russell and I want to thank you and Romantic Gestures for helping us organise the trip away. It was exactly what we needed, and the cottage/ vineyard setting actually far surpassed our expectations. It was raining pretty hard when we got there, so it sort've made the experience even better, being able to snuggle up in front of the (electric) fire and heat pump and just relax in the bath etc while listening to the rain.
The platter was really yummy, and we really appreciated the breakfast provisions as well. The cottage was nice and warm, and I loved the mix of old and new in terms of decor. Even Russell commented on how 'quaint' it was, which was awesome as he's usually not big on interiors. So no complaints, only positives; and we will definitely be using your services again
Phillippa likes to look after her staff and clients, we help her do that in a way that creates special memories....
Romantic Gestures are so helpful! I have given my staff, and suppliers weekends away from us at Mega Advertising, to say THANK YOU for all their hard work. Romantic Gestures made it easy to organise for me, and a great surprise for those we have given them too. Nicely packaged, easy for them to chose where they want to go, and excited that they could pick their own romantic time away! Thanks Jody and your team of cupids! :)
Phillippa, Director at Mega Advertising
Jayde was given one of our romance vouchers by her real estate agent. She was delighted and chose dinner out with her husband to celebrate their anniversary. Here are her comments...
We had such a great night, Thank you! It was so nice to just turn up and have everything already organised for us! We had a lovely table and dinner and the wine was perfect! The last few years our anniversary has really taken a back seat (our oldest son was born 2 days after our 5th anniversary, so we are usually busy getting ready for his birthday party and miss our anniversary), so this year it was so nice to know we had something sorted! and I didn't even need to lift a finger!
Also thank you for the tips brochure, that and the newsletters are great!
Ben wanted to ensure his marriage proposal was truly special. With a little assistance he succeeded...
What a perfect, unforgettable experience!
I was recently planning my engagement and my partner new the question was coming but how or when was still left to surprise. I had a few ideas of my own and they were good but not perfect.
Jody from Romantic Gestures helped me get them perfect! Together we met up and devised a plan which was exquisite, foolproof, personalised and romantic! She had everything organised everything down to the smallest details which made all the difference and the weekend finished without a fault. ... She said Yes!!!
Thanks to Jody and Romantic Gestures we both have an exceptional memory and story to cherish for the rest of our lives. I would not hesitate to recommend this business to anyone and Im sure this is going to be the first of many dealings with Jody.
Thanks again Jody for all your help, we will keep in touch in the future and will have plenty more business dealings as well. We love those weekly Thursday tips!!
It was Beke's anniversary. She had planned a surprise picnic and wanted to come home to something special. We organised a Romantic Room Design, it was a definite success!...
Hi Jody and thank you soo much, the house looked amazing, and he was so surprised!
Everything worked out perfectly and I just love the little gifts, the glasses are beautiful.
You helped make my day perfect and I could never have pulled it off without you and your creativity.
I didn't hesitate to admit it was you who did it and I didn't come up with it all myself (ha ha) as much as I would like to take the all the praise!
So thanks once again for everything.
Chris was ready to propose and decided to ask for a little assistance, it paid off....
I recently wanted to propose to my partner.
I had some ideas of my own but truly wanted it to be special.
I emailed Jody and she asked me to ring.
Well I am very pleased that I did, together we hatched a plan for a very romantic weekend and a proposal.
Jody 's ideas added the little touches I was missing.
I am very pleased to say that the whole weekend was a succeess and my partner said yes.
If you are thinking of doing something special I would highly recommend Romantic Gestures services.
To me it made the difference, they really listen to what you want a make it a whole lot easier.
As well as that it makes a great story to tell and lots of people comment on the effort you went to.
Thankyou once again Jody
It's feedback like this that make our job at Romantic Gestures such a pleasure!...
Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time we had and to say thank you for making our break away so special. Nola, Maria and the team were wonderful nothing was too much trouble; they really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. The cottage and vineyard was beautiful, very peaceful and just what we needed. Your romance package was a wonderful surprise: from the card and chocolates before we left to the really sweet welcome home gift waiting for us upon our return. Unfortunately, we now have to return to work and the real world!!
Thank you again for everything……..we will certainly be using you again and recommending you to all our friends.
Andrew wanted to surprise his wife for her Birthday. A personal chef was the perfect option.....
Just a quick note to say WOW!!!
What an brilliant romantic and quality evening we had!! We were so very impressed by Andy and the meal. We couldn’t believe what we were getting!! Great value! I’ll be passing your name on to people at work.
You can pass on to Andy that we thought his professionalism and ability were far beyond expectations. The food was beautiful and the service and little touches (including your little present, thank you) were fantastic.
Simply a great evening.
Thanks once again.
“I am a busy businessman. Learning to balance my time between business and relationships has been challenging, yet rewarding. My choice to make time for my wife and to build romance into our relationship has been made easier by knowing that I have “romantic” support an email or phone call away and that I don’t have to spend hours searching for the latest deal or romantic getaway online. All I have to do is flick an email to Jody with a budget in mind and she comes back with some great packages. A great service I recommend to all busy couples out there.” Joel Sadler
And what did Joel's wife think of her romantic weekend??
“It was a lovely surprise! The accommodation was very romantic and cosy. The view from the rooms is breathtaking. I would definitely recommend the venue, food and service to anyone. Thanks for a great surprise weekend!”
Joel and Charlotte Sadler
Ten years together is an Anniversary worth celebrating! Aimee's shares her experience of Romantic Gestures......
My husband and I have just celebrated our 10 year anniversary, and I wanted something special for us and that is when I got Jody from Romantic Gestures involved.
The process was so simple and Jody was very helpful! I contacted her, and the next day I had a lovely package arrive at work with different options for my husband and I. We decided to stay at a cottage on a organic farm and it was just divine! I also organised a wow package and we had all sorts of gifts, so that way we both got lovely surprises on the weekend! We even had a welcome home gift, we just loved those extra touches!
We have another special occasion to celebrate soon and I will defiantly be getting Jody to organise it for us :)
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Romantic Gestures to anyone.
Thanks a million Jody ;-)
Aimee & Shanan
Nic wanted to organise a special proposal for Sarah. He happily admitted to having a little help from us (we never divulge such information), here is what Sarah had to say....
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! for the most romantic moment ever.
It was a moment that i will never forget, Nic is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with and it could not have been anymore romantic and I have to thank you for making all those small touches that mean so much.
I could not wait to tell everyone how beautiful it was.
Thank you again
Testimonial from Lois and Dave following a two night break away - their first in three years....
Fantastic romantic and peaceful!!!
The quality was outstanding and well worth the money. I highly recommend this to anyone for a short or lengthy stay. The bath salts set was outstanding and the red wine was a wonderful polishing off to a stunning evening.
The bathroom was beautiful, from the heated floor to constant hot water and tranquillity. The view was like something out of the movies whether it be the sun setting or rising.
Jody good spotting with this place I didn't want to leave!! (and yes we did both fit in the bath hehe)
So a huge huge thank-you.
I will be using your service again but won't wait 3 years though, it will be sooner.
Lois and Dave Coulter
Dean was in the dog box for forgetting his wedding anniversary....
Thanks Jody! I didn't think it was possible to be forgiven for forgetting our anniversary but thanks to the wonderful romantic evening you organised for me at the last minute I am back in the good books, phew! You made the whole thing so easy, I will most definitely be using your services again in the future. Keep up the great work!
Dean - Riccarton
After organising a limousine cruise and Romantic Room them for Tania and Rob’s first wedding anniversary this was the feedback received…
Our day got better and better! Rob had no idea about any of it - he guessed we would be going out for dinner but then when the car arrived to pick us up after the meal he was blown away and I think he thought that was it. When he got home and saw the room he was soooo surprised, as was I! It was beautiful and we both loved what you did. He has been skiting to everyone all day about it.
I love that yesterday we were still finding little things you had left which we hadn't noticed on Saturday night!!
Once again, thanks so much and we will definitely use your services again and highly recommend it to anyone we know wanting to add a little romance to their lives. I have let Rob know that its not the only thing you do as he's in charge of next year and is already thinking about what to do as he said I have "set the bar high", so maybe you'll hear from him!
Thank you so much for helping make our special day absolutely magic.
Tania - Halswell
Shiralee and Dave were looking for somewhere special to celebrate their wedding. We got it just right....
F A N T A S T I C ! ! ! ! ! We both really enjoyed our time away and will do it again some time. The food was excellent and the amount was absolutely right. I have never ever in my life experienced anything like it and I enjoyed it so much I didn't really want to get back to reality. The room was beautifully appointed and the bathroom was bigger than our lounge and all marble. Sitting in the hot tub in the dark with the rain was an altogether different experience and much enjoyed by both of us.
Thankyou sooo much for organising it and for the chocolates that we found on arrival.
Shiralee and Dave
In need of some quality time with my husband I contacted Jody at Romantic Gestures and asked her to organise a weekend away for us. The whole process could not have been easier. Jody took care of every detail, all we had to do was arrive at our destination and relax. What a magical spot it was, beautiful accommodation, food and views with fantastic service. Both my husband and I lead very busy lives juggling work and family commitments so it’s reassuring to know a simple phone call to Jody is all that is needed to plan some quality time together. We will defiantly be using her services again and have no hesitation in recommending Romantic Gestures to others.
Rodd & Venus Garcia
I have been receiving your newsletter and I used one of your suggestions last night and put the candles in a heart shape on the floor - my boyfriend came over to mine after a long day and he was blown away by what I'd done. I was already half way through the bottle of wine I had, by this stage, as he was later than he thought he would be, but... he loved the idea and I loved the fact that he loved it.
Anyway, thanks again for sending me the ideas and giving me inspiration - they are fabulous!
Every week we send out a free romance tip to members of our data base. Thanks AnnMaree for this feedback....
“We all know that romance goes on the back burner and life takes over in our relationships. Getting the romance tips from Romantic Gestures has brought the conscious thought back and I look forward to receiving them each week right before the weekend so I bring a little bit of romance back to an otherwise normal weekend. Thank you so much Jody”
I enjoy Jody’s Romantic Tips each Friday they’re creative, fun and many are low or no cost. Her advice is brilliant and with her help I’m adding ideas to my romantic repertoire.
We were looking for something different to give to our staff for their 10 years service milestone, and after one phone call to Jody we had a novel gift box for a night out at the movies complete with all the trimmings. These were also imaginatively and beautifully presented. This was such a good idea, that we have now used the same pack as a Xmas gift for all our valued customers. This has received great feedback and appreciation. We also presented Jody with another challenge as some people were based outside Christchurch, but again her creativity came to the fore and with a couple of replacement articles we had a twist on the same theme. Her attention to detail is excellent and being able to leave a job in her capable hands and not feel you have to follow up at any point is a breath of fresh air.
It has been a pleasure dealing with Jody at Romantic Gestures. Jody’s “can do” and professional attitude, combined with her innovative ideas, make Romantic Gestures a one stop shop for all incentives and gift ideas.
After 26 years of marriage the creative juices for celebrating our anniversary were running low. I needed some inspiration. Along came Jody on her white horse who, found out what we liked doing and how long we had to celebrate. Jody then took care of everything from ringing around to get the best deals on boutique hotels, booking the best restaurant in Akaroa and taking care of all the little things like special chocolates, special little gifts and arranging wine and nibbles in our room. Everything went smoothly and I should be good for another 26 years of marriage.
Thanks so much Jody, taking care of all the small details, it made for a very special celebration for us.
Hi Jody, man am I in the good books!!
Lisa let me watch three games of rugby in the week end without complaint! AMAZING
I was so happy with everything you did for us we had a fantastic afternoon, and I’m excited about using your creative services again sometime soon.
Once again thank you, have a fantastic week
My honeymoon wasn’t exactly picture perfect. Everything that could possibly go wrong did.
We approached Jody to help us with a second honeymoon. It was the most romantic experience of our lives.
The detail and thought that went into the holiday was incredible. If you want a perfect romantic experience I highly recommend Romantic Gestures

As a manager I am always looking for something different to build relationships with our customers and with our staff. Jody at Romantic Gestures recently put on a great day for us which was exactly what we were after; happy customers and happy staff and as a result a stronger relationship. It was easy and worked for everyone.
Roger Swift - ANZ
Romantic Gestures is a life saver or rather a relationship saver! We all get so busy with our day to day lives that it is easy to forget to take time out with the love of your life. Jody is our secret weapon and organises such magical experiences that money just can't buy. And it is also a great staff incentive or gift for that client who has everything.
Romantic Gestures - what an amazing service!
