Select a favorite destination and give your loved one a vacation at an exotic location or just as simple weekend away for a romantic Christmas gift. This gift can be given many ways. For example, buy an overnight bag and place tickets or a message inside with the details of the trip, or create a message in a bottle instead.
Jewelry always makes a romantic gift, but to make it special, personalize it. For her, give a heart-shaped pendant or locket with a picture of you inside. For him, give a watch with a romantic message engraved on the band or on the back of the watch. A ring containing a birthstone or your loved one's initial is an ideal romantic gift.
Gifts of beauty can be a romantic gesture for any partner. A day of pampering at a spa will be appreciated and remembered. Many spas offer packages that can be tailored to your partner's preferences. For her you might include a facial, manicure and pedicure and a massage and for him, a facial, massage and sauna. Another option is to fill a bag with your partner's favorite perfume, soaps and bath accessories for some at-home pampering.
Photo gifts are personal, letting you show your love by preserving special memories. Arrange a photo session as a couple or give your significant other romantic photos of yourself. Another option that is romantic is surprising your loved one with her photo painted onto a canvas.
For the loved one who has everything, try a romantic gift that shows you're thinking outside the box. Name a star after your partner; paying for the star naming gives you a certificate and charts showing the star's location. Monthly clubs that send a new gift each month are another romantic option that shows you put thought into your romantic gesture. Book clubs, music clubs, wine and dessert-of-the-month clubs are a few options for this romantic gift. If your significant other has always wanted to try a specific hobby like flying or dancing, then give a gift of lessons.
Often the gifts that are most romantic are the ones you make yourself. Combine traditional gift giving with a little creativity. Make a website dedicated to your significant other and your life together, for example, or create love coupons that your partner can redeem year round for things like a romantic massage or breakfast in bed. Another option is to create a mixed CD of your loved one's favorite songs. You can also create an mp3 of favorite music instead.
