Is it more important to love or to be loved?
For me, I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved. Valentine’s Day is the occasion where you can experience both. Here are some creative ways to tell your special someone “I love you.”
1. On small pieces of paper, write down every kind of kiss that you can think of (examples: passionate, on the cheek, etc.). Then fill an inexpensive red bag with your “kisses” and give it to him/her. Ask him/her to pull several pieces of paper from the felt bag, and then give your sweetheart whatever kind of kiss is described. This is recommended for couples and not for first time confession.
2. Make a book about why you love and why you are thankful for him/her. For me, I personally prefer to use a deck of cards (a normal deck which contains 52 cards excluding Jokers), tie the cards together with strings and make it look like a book with 52 pages. For every page, write one reason you love him/her. For the title of the book, I’ll name it “52 Reasons Why I Love You”. Totally recommended for everyone.
3. Invite your special someone over to your place and cook a dinner for him/her. After enjoying a candlelight dinner, watch a romantic movie together and then who knows what will happen ~
4. One of the best ideas: give your wife/girlfriend a dozen roses. On each stem attach a note for a future date. In each note, write something that she would love to do. (For example, “Go to the beach.”)
5. For married couples, if possible, go on a date with your spouse to a restaurant that you enjoyed when you two first met. After you order your meal, take some time to write down favorite memories from the past year. Then share your lists.
6. Have 11 roses delivered to your wife/girlfriend, and then give her a 12th yourself. Tell her that you will love her till the last rose dies. PS: the 12th rose is made of plastic.
7. If you are separated across the miles, send a package filled with things like a box of chocolate or anything that she likes. If you’re ready to propose, send her a ring.
8. Make a meal with symbols of love. For example, make a tart in the shape of a heart.
9. Fill a jar with Valentine candy and notes for your spouse. Notes could also express your love and respect: “I am so glad that God blessed my life with such a great husband/wife like you.” Roll each note and tie it with a ribbon.
10. Write a poem for your spouse, frame it and wrap it with a nice wrapper.
11. For wives, surprise your husband when he comes home from work on 14th February. Leave a trail of red foil-wrapped Hershey kisses to your bedroom.
12. Make a special “14 Reasons I Love You” Valentine’s Day breakfast for your sweetheart. On his/her plate, leave a letter or card listing 14 reasons that you love your spouse.
There are many more creative ways to express your love but most importantly, have fun on 14th February, and remember: Love is not meant to be given and received just on Valentine’s Day. Instead, it’s to be practiced every single day of the entire year. Follow @sndHERsomething on Twitter or visit http://www.sendhersomething.com for the best gifts ideas!!!
