The great thing about telling someone you love them is seeing their reaction and hearing their response. In 2014, there are many creative ways to say ‘I love you’ in person and many techie ways to tell someone you love them from afar. Here are the top five creative ways to say the magic words this year.
1. Make A Timeline
Timelines are a series of photos showing the time since you first met to the present day. You can upload some photos to a digital picture frame or create a timeline slideshow with music and photos on Facebook or Instagram. This is a great way to show someone how much they mean to you. Alternatively, you could simply make a special cover photo for your Facebook timeline.
2. Make A Card
We’re so used to sending emails and messages or buying shop-bought cards that a hand-made card is highly creative. Taking the time to make a card shows that you invested your most precious commodity: time. Receiving a hand-made card means a whole lot more than receiving a store-bought card.
3. Make A Flower Display
Any florists shop will make up a display but these can look too commercial and contrived. It is easy to make a flower display by choosing a color theme and buying an inexpensive jug or small pot as your base. Build your arrangement up in layers, starting with the leafy plants first so that the flowers really stay where you want them. Cut the flower stems to length so that the flowers start right at the top of the jug and you do not see the stems.
4. Cook A Meal
In the age of instant meals and takeaways, the art of cooking is still one of the most creative and romantic gestures around. Cooking a meal is the perfect way to say ‘I love you’. You can go cheap and cheesy and write a message with sauce or dressing if you wish but a beautifully cooked meal on its own will deliver the message perfectly well.
5. Make A Hamper
It is easy to buy your own basket, paper, bows and ribbons to create a custom hamper. You can choose the contents yourself and ensure that the hamper is successful. Start by thinking of a theme and choose a variety of items around that particular theme. Simply line a basket with expensive gift paper and place the largest, heaviest items at the bottom in the center. Layer the smaller items on top so they are more visible. To add a professional touch, you can even wrap your gift basket with cling film to keep everything in place.
These five ways of saying ‘I love you’ are guaranteed to give anyone a positive response. These ideas are some of the most creative ways to display your love for someone else.
