We’ve all been in that awkward situation when you know you love someone but just don’t quite know how to express it. And it all gets a lot more complicated when Christmas is around the corner!
If you’re currently wracking your brain, trying to find the perfect way to say those three important words: I love you, you’ll be pleased to know that we have a list of the top 13 ways to tell your partner just how much you love them.
- The iPhone style love message
As we’re the age of technology, it’s likely your partner spends more time on their iPhone than they do looking at photo albums, so why not give them a constant reminder of how you feel about them? No, we don’t mean change their display background.
There are many companies online that allow you to turn your social media photos into a unique iPhone case, so your loved one can be sure just how much you love them.
- Be original with your toast
There’s no reason breakfast can’t be the most romantic meal of the day, so it’s time to break the tradition of a bowl of cereal and mix things up. Get your hands on a toast topper which allows you to print your love message directly into the bread and cut heart shapes out of your fried eggs.
Trust us, this will leave them with a smile on their face for the rest of the day!
- Surprise them with a hamper
You can’t go wrong with a hamper gift, so get one that shouts loved-up! With a beautiful basket, full to the brim of champagne, red roses and chocolate truffles, what more could your partner ask for? Oh and add a heart-shaped balloon for good measure!
- The way to a woman’s heart
We all know the way to a woman’ heart is either shopping or flowers – so opt for flowers; it’s cheaper! Get your hands on a beautiful bouquet of her favourite blooms and you can be sure she will be beaming from ear to ear.
- Revisit a first date or first meeting place
Take your partner back to where you had your first date and reminisce all the good times and how things have changed since then. And for that added touch, you could also pour a glass of bubbly to celebrate your relationship.
- Book a weekend away
When it comes to booking a weekend away, you have two choices: go traditional or be unique. You could opt for a beautiful hotel located in the heart of the capital city of romance; Paris, or book flights to a location that your partner has been dying to visit.
- Go old-school
There’s nothing wrong with going old-school and making a mixed tape for your beloved other half. Although, rather than a tape, you could make a CD she can download to her phone. She will absolutely love this old fashioned gesture!
- Love letters
Darwin, Flaubert and even the tyrant Henry VIII wrote love letters to their beloveds, so why can’t you? Trust us, if it worked for them, it’s sure to work for you!
Get concentrating and write a letter telling your partner just how much she means to you; after all, sometimes it’s easier to write how you feel than say it.
- Organise a picnic
If the weather is nice and dry outside, why not get the soft blanket out of the cupboard and create a romantic picnic? Add chocolate covered strawberries, champagne and your partner’s favourite food and invite her to meet you in a local beauty spot. You could even take a romantic stroll along the river.
- Coffee stencil
If your beloved is a bit of a caffeine addict, why not get a coffee stencil and spell out “I love you”. This will be the perfect start to her morning and you never know, she may even go into work with a smile on her face!
- Cook for her
If you’re running on a tight budget, why not simply cook her a three-course meal complete with a glass of her favourite wine. Whether this is a fancy meal or steak and chips, the surprise will mean more to her than you know.
- Organise a sign in the sky
If you really fancy going to town, why not go big and organise an aeroplane to fly across with a banner saying “I love you” on? Trust us, she won’t expect that one!
- Just say it
There is absolutely nothing wrong with just coming out and telling your partner that you love them. It’s simple yet effective; what more could she want?
