If you want to make the gesture even more special, consider a present that will let them know what they mean to you by giving them something personal to commemorate your time together. The perfect gift doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.
Gifts from the Heart
Create a playlist of the songs that mean something special to the two of you. It’s a gift that can be enjoyed again and again and remind your partner of some of the most meaningful times the two of you have shared. From the song that was playing on the way to your first dinner date to the soundtrack from your favorite movie, you’ll have plenty of musical memories to choose from for the perfect gift.
Handwritten letters are a thing of the past, which is exactly why receiving one now will offer a heartfelt surprise and mean even more than ever. Share some of your favorite memories, include quotes from movies and conversations, and explain when and why your special person has come to mean the world to you.
Photos are always a special and meaningful delight. It can be a rewarding and fun process for the gift giver to collect photos to create a special gift. while you look through the photos you have of the two of you together collect the ones that include your favorite memories.
Whether it’s a trip to the coast, a weekend you spent camping with friends, or a night at a concert, the gift will tell the story of the time you have spent together. Use the pictures to create a montage or a one-of-a-kind personal photo album of the two of you.
Tradition with a Twist
Personalized gifts with printed ribbons are sure to bring a smile to their face. Chocolates and roses have long been the traditional items to surprise someone you care for. They are always an appreciated treat, but for the next time make your bouquet or gift even more special by including a personalized message! It will be quite a surprise.
A Gift with Class
Make this the year you learn how to do something new together. Learn a new dance, how to cook a romantic dinner with one another, or discover a new hobby by taking a local class offered through a community education program or a local university. What a great way to spend some quality time together while planting a seed for something the two of you can enjoy doing together well into the future.
While dinner and a movie never disappoint, sometimes it’s nice to give the unexpected gift with a personal touch that took a little extra work on your part. The best gifts aren’t always about how much they cost or the label on the package. It will be worth every minute when you see the look of surprise on the face of the one you love.
