Write hand written notes
Deliver it to your loved one along with a small gift, it could be a simple gift basket of his favourite goodies, a couple of vouchers for a massage or personal training session or even a more elaborate gift but write a lovely note that your partner will treasure.

Create a mix tape
With origins in the 1980s, it typically describes a homemade compilation of music onto a cassette tape, CD, or digital playlist.
Many enthusiasts also devote substantial attention to the packaging of a mix tape intended as a gift, sometimes going so far as to create cover art and customised liner notes.
On a very basic level, the creation of a mix tape can be seen as an expression of the individual compiler’s taste in music, often put forward for the approval of the tape’s receiver
“Making a mix can communicate any feeling you want, without having to put anything into words – other than a catchy title. Speaking of which, a theme is essential. Mixtapes are not playlists, they need to be cohesive rather than just a jumbling of songs. So what are the rules – or, rather, guidelines? When it comes to affairs of the heart, there are no rules.
First, make it personal. Mixtape’s represent not only songs you like, but selections you think the recipient will love.
Secondly, there are general organisational rules of thumb: avoid including more than one track by the same artist, or two versions of the same song back to back (though covers are welcome).”
Thirdly, try to avoid the big hits. Not that Top 40 music is inferior, but more because he or she can just turn on the radio if they want to hear what’s charting! Go back to first rule.. make it personal, focus on the listener, its something he or she should enjoy listening to and the lyrics should speak to them.
