When filled with the indescribable bliss of love, many partners have a desire to express this love through the presentation of a tangible gift. Giving your partner a physical gift not only conveys the depth of your emotion but also give the lover an object to serve as a reminder of you and your affection. To ensure that your love gift is effective in conveying the feelings you possess, pick your present carefully and consider the message that the selected gift will send to the one you love.
Flowers are the quintessential love gift. Delicate blooms are highly effective in conveying affection and serve as an aesthetically pleasing reminder of the beauty of your romance. Select flowers favored by your partner to ensure that the gift is as well received as it is thoughtful. Also, when selecting your blooms, be cognizant of the meanings of certain flowers, such as yellow roses that signify friendship and, as such, may not be the proper choice to represent your smoldering desire.
The heart is the universal symbol of love. Heart-shaped jewelery is a wonderful gift as it gives your lover something attractive to wear on her neck, wrist or ring finger. Whenever she looks upon the beautiful piece of jewelry that you so carefully chose, she will remember your love and feel as if you are near.
Take some time and create a home-spun gift to communicate your emotions. Select pictures of you and your sweetie, and fashion these images into a scrapbook. Fill your pages with intricately cut-out letters and heart-shaped images. Bind your book together and present it to your special someone as a great way to show just how much you truly care.
If you are looking for something truly out of the ordinary, consider cataloging your communication with your loved one. A “Glamour Magazine” reader did just this when he created a book of texts for his girlfriend, printing out all the text messages that the two had sent back and forth since their love begin. In this digital age, when lovers utter sweet nothings more often than not through a virtual medium, this type of gift is truly appreciated as it gives the recipient a tangible account of your written love affair.
Instead of hitting the mall and picking out a shiny new gift for your special someone, consider delighting him with something old. Select a treasured family object or a token that you carried throughout your childhood. If you don’t have an old object to give, visit an antique store and by something that has a clear history. An older gift will likely be more distinctive than the mass-produced present that you could buy at a mall store and, as such, may be more appreciated.
