There are any number of ways that you can say or show your partner that you love them the 364 days of the year from one Valentine’s Day to the next. They aren’t hard, and they dont have to cost money, just a little bit of thought.
Lionel Richie makes a good suggestion when saying “I just called to say I love you”. When was the last time you were on the giving or receiving end of that call? Try it. That small gesture is a free gift that can make your loves day. Plus, if you cant find the time when sitting at your desk, or on the couch, you can call from the freezer aisle at the grocery store. As long as you “mean it form the bottom of your heart”.
Take a load off
One of the kindest things you can do for someone you love is make their life easier. We all have responsibilities and chores that pile up and can begin to stress us out but rarely ask for help. By taking some of the little things off of your lovers plate you are giving them the gift of more time, less stress, and showing them that you really care. Taking our the garbage, washing up some dishes, or throwing together a simple dinner can go a long way in helping lighten someones load, and in showing them some love.
Laptops stowed, Blackberries and Iphones down. A true love note should come in ink. An unexpected note tucked into a purse, under a pillow, or on the fridge to tell your special someone that you think they are great in any number of ways can act as a sweet reminder througout the day and as a keepsake for days to come.
No matter how you chose to show it, take a few minutes to communicate your love. Because one thing is for sure, whether it costs you time or money or both, the return on investment is well worth it.
