All you need is love and … creative ways to say I Love You.
Falling in love can be relatively easy, staying in love can be a little harder. Sometimes life happens and gets in the way, and it’s easy to take each other for granted and not put the effort in. It’s important to show your loved one how important they are to you, and it doesn’t need to be extravagant (sky sign-writing) or expensive (round the world trips) Below is a list of cute, creative and inexpensive ways to show that special someone how much you love them.
1 Mixed tape (or CD or USB stick) – use a selection of your and their favourite songs.
2 Go screen free – set up a media free day/evening/time and just be present.
3 Plan a surprise date – maybe take them back to where you first met.
4 Hand made card – nothing beats hand-made with love.
