There are some small acts of love that make lots of difference and below are some:

Priortise your partner’s pleasure
An adequate lover is attentive to their partner’s needs and respectful of their boundaries. Think of that as the baseline. An adequate lover asks questions like, are you going to come soon? An extraordinary lover learns what their partner desires, discovers their intimate spots, and asks about their fantasies. They make their partner feel safe and comfortable enough to share deeply intimate thoughts without fear of being judged.

Romantic notes
Love letters create intimacy, feeling the paper they touched, noticing the penmanship, resting your eyes on the weird way the write certain letters; it’s virtual sex the old-fashioned way. Taking the time to write a few sentences about what you value about them or why they mean so much to you is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to be an extraordinary partner.

Give
It is beautiful when you surprise them with gifts when they least expect them. It signifies you think about them even when not with them. Understand them and know what they will aprreciate then go ahead and send to them. It does not have to be so big and you do not have to break the bank. The impact of your gift has little to do with its cost. It’s the story behind it that makes it meaningful.

Let them have breathing space
There’s so much advice about what to do when you’re together but so little on the importance of letting your partner breathe. Space, distance, or whatever you call it is the most underestimated quality of healthy relationships. Give each other at least thirty minutes a day of unimpeded solitude. Vow not to interrupt them unless there’s a real emergency.

The tiny things we do for our loved ones go a long way in making lasting impressions.
