When our friends or family have been living away for an extended period people usually go through a wide range of emotions. It usually begins with jealousy that they are going on this magnificent adventure, then its boredom as they are away. Finally, you start to miss them and this is the one which lasts until the finally come home. Often, they will think you are fine, but you should show them how much you have missed them. If you want to convince them not to go again you can show them how much you cared that they were away or maybe they will ask you to join them next time. The best way to do this is to start on the day that they return home, that you will have a greater impact. We have a few suggestions that you could use to make their return more special.
Book their favourite restaurant:
After a long trip, most people including your special person will want a good meal, one of the best things you can do is book a table at their favourite restaurant, this works well for the both of you and will make them much happier. Food is always a great way to remind people they are home. Choosing a restaurant will also ensure that you don’t have to cook upon their return.
Organise there transport.
A great way to take the stress out of arriving home be it early or late is to have transport organised. You could do it personally but to be a bit classier book a private car to pick them up from the airport. This would be a nice touch especially if it is very close family or your spouse. Putting in the extra effort with small touches like this always highlight that you care for them and missed them. You could tie this into other suggestions on the list also. If the flight and journey aren’t to hectic.
Create and itinerary:
If it is there first-time home in a long time you could create an itinerary of places to see and visit that way have changed and developed over time. It’s a great way to see old areas in a new light and to ignite some nostalgia to ensure they feel very homely. Taking the initiative to create an itinerary will also take out some stress that they might be feeling when it comes to meeting old acquaintances and family. Make sure you do some research to make sure you don’t bring them to do wrong locations or people though or that could become a little awkward.
Moving home is just as difficult as moving away, possibly even harder. If you put in a little effort to make your special persona return home a little easier it is always good. They may be small task for you but for someone who might be a little nervous or stressed out with so many changes these little tasks help to put them at ease.
