creative Ways to say 'I love you'

Express yourself in a creative fashion.

We tell you how to make your partner feel special

1. Puzzle him/her

Leave clues around the house for him to find. Once he has all the pieces together let him/her piece it together to read - I Love You.

2. Create a photo album with witty one liners

It will put a smile on your face and remind you of all the special moments and memories you have spent together.

3 Let your partner get starry eyed

Use the scraps from Glow-in-the-Dark sticker pages and cut out the words "I LOVE YOU". Stick them over your partner's side of the bed. Every night, when the lights go out your sentiment glows on the ceiling!

4. Serenade your partner

Pick a song that is special to both of you and exercise those vocal chords. You are sure to win brownie point for the gesture, just make sure you practice before you take the stage.

5. Love coupons

Hand over a jar of coupons your partner can redeem through the year. They are sure to appreciate the gesture.

6. Candlelight dinner and dessert

Whether it's the meal on the plate or a kiss on the lips, make sure your partner knows that you are the hottest one on the menu.

7. Cook dinner together

Instead of going to a fancy restaurant for an expensive meal, cook a simple but delicious dinner at home, and enjoy each other's company.

8. Sign up for a ballroom dance class

Try Latin ballroom dancing, brush up your moves and have a blast together on the dance floor.

9. Say it with toast

Prepare a special breakfast for your love one and surprise them with it. If you have an espresso machine try making a heart with froth on the coffee and toast with jam that reads I love you.

10. Deliver lunch

Have a surprise hot lunch delivered to their office, even better if you can deliver it yourself.

11. Say it with a heart-shaped sandwich

Carve a heart-shaped bread and fill it with your partner's favourite fillings. They are sure to appreciate the treat and the gesture.

12. Take off on a trip together

Celebrate being together with a trip to your favourite holiday destinations.

13. Milkyway

Hide a bunch of silly prizes and a card in your lover's favorite cereal.

14. Cut an album

In your own voice, record poetry or a song on a CD for your partner to listen to on the way to work or while he or she is out of town.

15. Say it on the mirror, mirror on the wall

Use that old tube of lipstick to write a good morning greeting on the mirror.

16. The tasting game

Take strawberries, chillies, chocolate, mix different flavours and blindfold your partner. If they guess the right one reward them with a kiss.

17. Go the tech way

Change the screen saver on the computer to a scrolling message. For added effect, use a wingding or character font that can't be read without decoding.
