    it does not need any money to say your sweet heart that you love her, just hold her hand, look in her eyes and say that you love her. all you need is true feeling. Feeling comes from heart and no money is required for that.

    Shopping is not the only way to express love and affection.  There are lots of ways that a partner can communicate their feelings without having to buy anything.

    You could make something for your partner, such as a card or a knitted item etc. You could also buy a plant and name it after him/her. There are lots of hubs you can read that may also give you more answers.

    * Take her to a special place - for example a picnic by a river. Bring a blanket to lay on and enjoy being alone in eachothers company in a peaceful place.
    * Give her a sensual massage, with candles and scented oils.
    * Leave her love letters around the place -  or write her a love poem.
    *  Pick her flowers.
    *  Buy her chocolates.
    *  Decorate the table for a romantic meal and night in (use candles & rose-petals).
    *  Print out a picture of the two of you from your computer and frame it for her bedside table, it's a gift sure to make her smile!

    It doesn't cost ANYTHING to say, "I love you".

    I could go on a redundant rant saying that you don't need money to express love, but I won't. To put it simply, just say 'I Love You'. Just make sure that you are genuine.

    It's not about how much you spend, it's about how much she/he moves you to do something you didn't plan on doing. It's not about sucking up it's about showing them that they have such a strong effect on you to control you and make you do unpredictable things.

    Send her/him messages when you see something that reminds you of them, it's especially nice if it's some kind of inside joke type thing.

    Use your talents to your advantage. If you're on here you might enjoy writing, prehaps you can compose a poem. More musical? How about a song? If you enjoy the culinary arts a frugal meal would be devine as food is an intimate approach. Or maybe you prefer the outdoors and could take them through an "Our Greatest Places" memorial tour (depends how cold it is where you are I would imagine). Think about what you are good at and what they appreciate about you and use it to your advantage! You can't disapoint someone who loves you when you sincerely try to express your feelings of love.

    The best ways to say it don't have to involve spending a penny.  Unfortunately, we live in a capitalist world, and it's all too easy to get caught up in buying bigger and more impressive gifts for your loved one.  Have we lost touch with the other... read more

    your answer...

    Go to your favourite place. It doesn't need to be miles away or cost you the price of an airline flight, it could be your local park or the beach. Give them a few home-made chocolate truffles- they're easily made and quite delicious, or buy a small number of continental chocs from the high street. Wrap them in tissue paper tied with a scrap of ribbon. Watch the sun go down, accompanied by "your tune," even if you have to play it on the car stereo as you sit in your favourite spot. Hold each other- sometimes we forget the basics. Feel safe and warm together. None of the above costs a fortune.

    I agree with most of these answers.  I have found that the gifts I have given that got the best responce were those that required thought and effort not money.

    Write her a poem. From the heart. That will have more meaning and will be more special - than any flower, meal, holiday other physical preasent you're thinking of buying her ( i'm assuming sweetheart - is a girl!!!  - if it's a guy - not quite sure - although they can be easily pleased!)

    I've always loved poems. Original ones of course, not something you copy out of a book! Handwritten, too.

    But I suppose it also depends on the person receiving also. Some people truly believe it's the thought that counts, while others think it's the $$ spent that counts.
