Give Symbols of Your Love

Gifts, surprises, and special events are symbolic ways to express the depth of your love to your special lady. Flowers, jewelry, chocolates, and other small or large glam gifts are always fun to receive. So are shopping sprees, ballet tickets, fancy dinners, and romantic getaways.

But gifts and gestures don’t have to be expensive, a picnic in the park or romantic bath for two is often more heartwarming than a new car, fur coat, or diamond necklace. It’s the thought and symbolism behind the gift or act that makes it wonderful.

If the emotional part of your relationship is not nurtured then your gift of a new Mercedes may just be an empty reflection of the love that is missing. If you spend beyond your means your ladylove may feel angry at your irresponsibility and not receive the love gift as you intended.

Remember that gifts and activities are symbols, a reflection of the love you share together, and quality time and attention are often the best gifts you can give to another person.
