How to Put Together a Romantic Evening Gift Set

There are countless creative ways to express romantic feelings. Use artful planning to transport your partner into the pages of a favorite romance novel or movie. Shower your partner with love and show that special someone how much you care by planning a romantic evening. Use your intimate knowledge of your partner to create an unforgettable experience. Impress your significant other with a basket full of thoughtful gifts. Your partner will see, smell, taste and feel your affection.

Pad a basket. Fill the basket halfway full of straw or shredded tissue paper. Use colored tissue paper to add personality, and a ribbon that is complementary to the tissue paper to fashion a bow around the handle of the basket.

Purchase romantic songs to set the mood for the evening. Intimate conversations and stolen kisses mesh perfectly with slow and mid-tempo songs of amorous crooning. Place a compact disc of romantic songs or a flash drive or MP3 player of romantic songs into the basket.

Put fine chocolates into the basket. Chocolate contains a chemical called phenylethylamine which is also called the "love chemical." Phenylethylamine is naturally produced in the brain when you are in love. Use ribbon to fashion a bow around the chocolates.

Select a bottle of wine. Choose a wine that pairs well with the chocolates or select a wine that your partner enjoys. Place the wine in the basket so that the label is visible.

Include rose petals. Rose petals are soft, sensual and they smell good. Pluck the petals of half a dozen roses. Place the petals into a sheer organza bag. Use the petals to create a path from the door to a rug in front of the fireplace or sprinkle the petals onto bath water. Place the bag of petals in the basket so that it is not crushed by the other items.

Select a bottle of massage oil. A sensual massage is an appropriate addition to a romantic evening. Choose a massage oil that smells nice and is self-heating. Use a ribbon to fashion a bow around the neck of the bottle.
