You don't have to spend a lot of money on a present to show someone that you care. In fact, some of the best gifts are homemade, because they prove you really spent some time thinking of the person and put your heart into it. Show that special someone you love them with a romantic gift. Like the saying, "It's the thought that counts," handmade presents are truly acts of love.
Really show that special someone what they mean to you by putting your words on paper in the form of a poem. Romantic poems are special because they require a lot of thought and are original. Personalize the poem to make him or her feel like a king or queen who is ever so much in love. Write or type the poem on a sheet of fancy paper or parchment, and frame it if you'd like.
Love Coupon Book
Using a word processing program, create several "coupons." Make them for things you can do around the house or special things such as massages, bubble baths and candlelit dinners. Create as many coupons as you'd like, and combine them all in a small book. Be sure to include expiration dates as well as "terms and conditions" on the coupons.
Create a hand-carved gift. Decide what you want to make based on his or her favorite things, hobbies or needs. If he needs a pencil holder for his desk at work then find a small chunk of wood and make a basic pencil holder. Then embellish the piece as you see fit. Be sure to add the recipient's name on the item and your name as the artist. The fact that you've taken the time to think of them and work on such a project will score you a lot of points with your significant other.
Put together a scrapbook of your life as a couple. This is something he or she will look back on for years to come. Make it as fancy or simple as you'd like.
Create homemade soap for your loved one. Choose some soap or candy molds in the shape of things your significant other adores. Or simply choose romantic hearts as the mold. Mix all your ingredients, and be sure to add in his or her favorite scent to make them happy and content when they smell it. Wrap a few pieces in cellophane and tie with a bow.
Create a collection of your significant other's favorite songs. Burn all of these to a CD, then design a custom label on the computer. Place the label on the CD and set in a CD case. Make a CD sleeve that lists all the songs and has photos of the two of you.
