Plan ahead and do this when you vacation near a beach, or get a friend who lives by the beach to help you out.
Write a special message in the sand to your significant other. It can be something like, "Jerry loves Jane," "Happy Anniversary, Sweetie," "Jane and Jerry forever," "Jane and Jerry = 10 years together. " "I can't believe I found you. " Or it can reveal information like, "I'm pregnant," "Will you marry me?" "We're moving to Florida. " Or it can be your inside phrase or joke that is significant to the two of you. Draw a heart or cloud around the message and take a picture from a high point that also shows some of the ocean. Develop the photo, frame it, and present it on that special occasion. It will be a romantic keepsake you can keep forever to remember that occasion.
Everyone keeps little things that mean something to them in a relationship.
Take some of these mementos -- ticket stubs, cards, receipts and favorite photos of the two of you -- and put them together into a collage that describes your relationship. Glue the pieces to a piece of card stock and apply a thin layer of sealant to the surface if you want it to have a glossy touch. Find the right frame and present it to your significant other. You might also want to take these things and use a local website to create a photo book collage with photos and mementos.
Romantic Photo Session
Take your partner for a romantic photo session on an anniversary, birthday, Valentine's Day or other significant occasion.
Find a skilled photographer and enjoy a special hour creating romantic photos that you'll remember for a lifetime. They can be as lighthearted or as sensual as you want them.
Romantic Photo Hunt
Make a list of romantic things to capture in photos; a rose, a heart, a couple kissing, a place you always walk, a statue you like in the park, moonlight, fountains, champagne and chocolate, an older couple holding hands, romantic words found in signs and pink objects.
Spend a day with your partner and the camera, hunting down the items on the list. Take time to walk in the park, have a romantic lunch with the requisite champagne and chocolate and hopefully end at a special place that involves moonlight.
