Flowers: Anniversary bouquet re-visited
Recreate the bouquet your wife carried at your wedding by giving her one flower for each month you have been together. Choose flowers and colours from the original bouquet.
Journal: Story of a Lifetime
Preserve your most precious memories for the next generation: write your own story of your life. Chronicle all the important events and relationships, milestones and challenges for a fantastic keepsake present which is great to pass on to future generations.
Journal: Love story
A pretty journal is a great gift if you add a personal touch: Write down your feelings of what your partner means to you, the reasons for your love and your fondest memories of shared moments and experiences. You can even start a tradition and pass the book back and forth (on important dates or whenever you feel like it), so over time both of you write down your personal love story.
Food: Lovers fortune
A box of delightful chocolate cookies, along with a note saying "You are my fortune - I love you!" are all it takes to make this romantic gift special.
Chocolate: Lovers dessert
Instead of buying a box of chocolates, bring all the ingredients for making your favorite desert together. Be prepared for a very sensual experience!
Flowers: One and only
A single red flower in a pretty vase with a short note saying "You are my one and only" is a simple yet romantic gift.
Music lover: Love song(s)
Record your love's favorite love songs and pop the CD into her CD player. Alternatively, purchase the songs online and load them onto his or her mp3-player. Choose either songs that have a special meaning to the two of you as a couple, or go for some of the classics like I Just Called to Say I Love You, Love Me Tender, or Dedicated to the One I Love.
Plant: "Growing Old Together"
A plant or bonsai tree, with a note to say "Grow old with me, the best is yet to be" makes a long-lasting and personal gift for many occasions.
It can also be a great gift for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary, wishing them a long and happy life together.
Tickets: Special Event
Buy a couple of tickets to your favorite show, concert or movie and add a personalized message for your loved one, saying "To the leading lady in my life" / "To the leading man in my life".
Scrapbook: Book of Honor
Mark a special occasion or milestone by creating a personal scrapbook for the recipient. Get the whole family or a group of friends to participate and ask each of them to fill a couple of pages with their best wishes and personal memories, including photographs and other small items, to create a truly unique gift.
Electronics: MP3 Player
Make this gift more meaningful by including a few special songs when you purchase your choice of mp3-player.
Choose songs that relate to the recipient and yourself (songs from a joint vacation, a night out together, etc.) or which have a 'theme' (songs of encouragement, love songs, happy tunes). Explain the meaning behind your choice of songs in a personal message to make your gift perfect!
