I Love You Gifts

Expressing love and saying "I love you"

There are plenty of times when we want to say "I love you" to that special someone in our life but quite often we just don't know how.

The occasion is almost irrelevant and there might not even be a particular reason for us wanting to express our feelings with a unique "I love you" gift.

Gift ideas

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.

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!"

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.

How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.

Victor Hugo
