The Gift of Touch
The sweet caress of your fingertips or the gentle, sensual loving touch can do wonders to ignite romance in a relationship. If your partner’s primary love language is TOUCH then pamper her/him with a body massage. Transform your bedroom into a soothing sanctuary with cozy and dim lights, soft music playing softly in the background bring out the champagne or wine, massage oil, scented candles or oil, scatter rose petals on the floor.

The Gift of Words or Song
"I love that you get cold when it's seventy degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend a day with you I can still smell your perfume on my clothes, and I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night." --from the movie, When Harry Met Sally
Love words stroke our hearts and re-awaken romance and love. If your partner’s love language is WORDS OF AFFIRMATION then choose from among these romantic ideas: Choose a romantic card that will speak best of your relationship. Tell her a poem. Sing a song for her. If you know how to compose a song, then compose one for your loved one. Tell each other how much you mean to each other. What you like best about the other and what you are grateful for. Write your message in a bottle. Of course, you have to choose where to do this. You can opt to have a candlelight dinner or in the warmth of your bedroom or your favorite romantic place.
Love needs to be expressed and every now and then we need to hear how much we are loved and why.
The Gift of Acts of Service
Surprise your partner with simple acts of service like breakfast in bed or concocting something special for dinner or telling her/him that I would like to give you a day off. I’m taking charge of this and that for the day. If the love language of your loved one is ACTS OF SERVICE, he/she will definitely feel so loved.
A friend recounted to me once that her husband’s love language is acts of service. I noticed he would vacuum our room or wash the dishes because I didn’t want to. So one day, I decided to do this for him. I could see the look of surprise in his face. It made me feel really pleased and happy.
May it be chores or doing little stuff like opening the car door for you, notice it and tell him/her how much you appreciate it will go a long way.
The Gift of Gifts
Some mates treasure gifts as expressions of love. You have to know your partner well enough to know what they want and take time to buy the thing she/he wants the most. A lover of shoes will be ecstatic to receive this gift from you just as a flower lover would love flowers or chocolates for the chocolate lover.
There are a million of gifts to choose from. The important thing is you know what your spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend wants. If you choose the right thing, chances are they will be over the moon on valentines day!
