Valentine's Day > Gift ideas
Event: Deja vu
A truly thoughtful gift is a recreation of the moment you first met your sweetheart, your first date or any other day that is special and meaningful to you as a couple. Depending on what you did that day, think about a movie or song that reminds you of the occasion and use it a prop for your gift. Add a note "Remember how it all began? Thanks for being in my life!"
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.
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.
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!
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".
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!
