Give a loved one a wonderful surprise with Fushi goodies
Recent research has suggested that people in married couples begin to take their other half for granted a mere three and a half years after their wedding day.
At this stage in their relationship, man and wife have a greater likelihood of hopping into bed at two different times, the Co-operative Food research suggested.
It seems that at this point in a relationship people start to forget things like Valentine's Day and anniversaries, too!
Some 73 per cent of the 2,000 married people surveyed felt that partners taking their other half for granted was a normal state of affairs when it came to people who had been hitched a good while, though.
And 90 per cent of the sample put their behaviour around their partner down to the fact they and their other half are very comfortable together. Two in three felt they were part of a strong marriage,
Meanwhile, 43 per cent said it was bad to take a partner for granted.
"This research shows once they’ve tied the knot, it’s all too easy for couples to start getting complacent and start taking each other for granted," commented Co-operative Food's Kate Jones.
"Once the honeymoon period is over, couples often let bad habits take over and forget to go the extra mile to make each other happy."
She suggested that things like having a meal as a couple at home or going for dates might prove a way that couples could show each other they care.
"Bad habits begin to creep into the relationship, such as breaking wind in front of each other, showering less, women forgetting to shave their legs, not closing the bathroom door when using the toilet and leaving the toilet seat up," she added.
"Far from those bad habits being a sign that the relationship’s on the rocks, it looks as though taking each other for granted can be a sign of security and comfort, and you don’t need the reassurance of saying ‘I love you’ all the time."
Why not give someone a Fushi surprise today?
Some 49 per cent of the sample said they wished their other half was more romantic.
If you’re worried that your partner might feel this way about you, a gift is an easy way to prove them wrong, especially when coupled with a romantic gesture.
Why not use some Fushi goodies to bring a smile to your other half's face when they're not expecting to have such a treat?

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
