Top 10 ways to say I Love You

1. Say it with flowers

Women love flowers (unless they are allergic) and surprising her with a bouquet of roses of lilies is an ideal way of saying ‘I love you’ without actually saying it. It wouldn’t hurt to write her a poem with that.

2. Hold Hands

Like hugging, holding hands is something that we often neglect to do when a relationship becomes cozy and familiar. Try taking your partner’s hand when walking down the street, or hold their hands across a table in a restaurant. Being in contact physically helps you feel closer emotionally. This is especially important if you need to talk through a difficult issue or problem. Holding hands can also be a visible demonstration of support if your partner is upset or feeling down.

3. Love letters

If you’re lucky enough to be with someone who has a deep appreciation for the English language, you might have to take your romantic vocabulary outside the standard I-love-you box

4. Give An Unexpected Gift

I’m sure you give your loved ones gifts on their birthday, at Christmas, and on special occasions like Valentine’s day. But how about bringing a gift completely at random? An unexpected present is a moment of pure joy for the recipient and the giver, and it needn’t be anything expensive. A few of their favorite chocolates, a small bunch of flowers, a book which you know they’ll enjoy … for a few dollars, you have the perfect way to say “I love you”.

5. Show friendship a little love

You probably say those magic words to your boyfriend, your mom—even your dog!—multiple times a day, but how often do you tell your best friend? Make sure she always knows how important she is to you with this set of three berry-scented candles.

6. Write A Poem

A time-honored way to say “I love you” is to write a poem. Try not to fall back on hackneyed phrases about their beautiful blue eyes or their rosy red lips; write about something that’s meaningful to you, perhaps that dimple on their chin, or the way they laugh at your jokes.

7. Surprise her

Once is a while, give her a surprise – something unexpected, out of the blue. Take her on a holiday, camping, to the movies or anywhere. A nice surprise is always a welcome surprise.

8. Make A Special Meal

If Friday nights usually mean ordering takeout, why not offer to cook for a change? Make a special meal for your partner (you don’t need an excuse for this – it doesn’t have to be Valentine’s day or an anniversary!) Include their favorite foods, take a few minutes to set the table, to light candles and put music on, and your usual forgettable evening slumped on the sofa can become a night to remember…

9. Compliment her

Tell her how nice her hair looks or compliment her dress. It’s a good way of assuring her that you still take notice of her.

10. Listen to Them

It’s easy to talk over people or to tune out most of what they’re saying whilst reading the newspaper or chatting online with friends. Listen actively to your partner – when they want to talk, put down what you’re doing, and focus all your attention on them. Listen for what they don’t say; unvoiced concerns or worries, or hints at what they’d really like. Nod and make eye-contact to show that you’re paying attention.
