 How do you love thee?  Here's a list of 40 ways to say so to the special person(s) in your life.  It doesn't have to be a lover.  Some ideas will work just as well for a friend, child, parent or other loved one. 

Many of the suggestions won't cost you a penny, just a lot of love and some creative effort. Plan a surprise that is rational or romantic, sentimental or silly, economical or extravagant--whatever you do, it will be a love-filled February 14th and you'll be thought of as a sweetheart throughout the year.

For Him

 

bullet

Borrow his car and have a new stereo system installed.

bullet

 Give tickets to a local sporting event he'll enjoy and suggest he bring along his best buddy...other than you.

bullet

While he's at work, have his car cleaned and detailed or do it yourself as a labor of love.

bullet

Compile some romantic memory photos in a decorative album and mark with sentimental captions.

bullet

 Have a boudoir photo taken of yourself and slip a copy of it into his luggage the next time he has to leave town, or put it in his briefcase to find on Valentine's morning.  Either way, you know he'll soon be rushing back home to you.

bullet

Either do it yourself or arrange for a cleaning crew to come in to spruce up his bachelor pad.

bullet

 Greet him at the door wearing his gift--a team shirt, jacket or necktie...and that's all!

bullet

 Create an "I love you because you." list of all his best qualities. Include things like "Does vehicle maintenance or trash disposal without being asked." Then frame it and read it to him.

bullet

 Find an antique or replica pocket watch and put a photo of yourself inside.

bullet

Go on a movie date and see an action, adventure or Three Stooges film without sighing and shaking your head as you watch the movie.

bullet

Track down a copy of a favorite book or album from his far past for a nostalgic gift.

bullet

 Book a room at a local adult motel or rent a couple of sexy movies for a very private showing.

bullet

Find one of his old college or service buddies via the Internet or Directory Assistance and set up a phone call reunion. (Visit the library for phone books.)
 

For Her

 

bullet

Take her to a "chick flick" she wants to see without complaining.

bullet

Make a candlelit dinner for the two of you (while the kids are away for the evening), even if your cooking skills consist of heat and serve.  Serve it on your best china and linens and then do the dishes yourself while she relaxes.

bullet

Set the atmosphere with flickering candles, the sounds of soft music, and a tub filled with bubbles  perfumed by her favorite fragrance.   Let her enjoy it while you put the kids to bed.  Give her a glass or wine or champagne to enjoy as she soaks.  Then offer to wash her hair and scrub her back -- with you either in or out of the tub...her preference.

bullet

 Give her a foot massage and polish her toe nails.

bullet

Offer to play Cupid by introducing a friend of her's, whom she would enjoy seeing in a relationship,  to a friend or acquaintance of yours whom you know might be a good love connection.
 

bullet

Give her a locket with photos of you and her in it or photos of your children.

bullet

Take her car to be serviced with an oil change, tire rotation and routine vehicle maintenance.

bullet

Arrange an evening out for her with her friends and treat the group to dinner and a movie while you babysit.

bullet

 Design a screen saver on her computer that says how much you love her.

bullet

Write a note on the bathroom mirror that will make her heart skip a beat when she steps out of the shower.

bullet

Create a list of all the reasons you love her and read it aloud to her in bed.

bullet

Give her a call after she's had an important meeting to find out how it went.

bullet

Call her at least once a week just to say you love her.

bullet

 Plan an evening out or at home for the two of you and you make the babysitter arrangements.

bullet

 Write up 12 coupons that gives her a day to herself of her choosing -- one day a month for a year.

bullet

Fill up the cupboards, closets, purses, luggage and drawers with love notes you've hidden that she'll come across throughout the year.

For Him or Her

 

bullet

Hire someone to write a personalized song and record it, or write it yourself and  sing it to your sweetie, either at a favorite Karaoke bar or when it's just you two.  This is a great gift to give to a parent or child as well.   
 

bullet

If your honey has a collection, buy something to add to it.

bullet

Get an autographed photo of a favorite sports figure or movie star and have it framed.

bullet

Write a sexy story with the two of you as the lead characters and read it aloud. (Record and/or print a copy to be enjoyed whenever you're apart from each other.)
 

bullet

 Give the pet lover a photo of the favored feline, furry, feathered or fishy friend in a fanciful or fun frame.

bullet

 "Hijack" your honey for a romantic getaway (but check with someone at work to make sure there are no pressing deadlines that would spoil your trip.)

bullet

Compile a tape of his or her favorite songs from different recording artists. You can  burn it into a CD or record it on tape.

bullet

 Show up with a picnic basket for a surprise luncheon at the job site or school yard.

bullet

Create a web page to post your fond and fervent feelings in cyberspace.  If it's truly personal, you can always add a password protection so that it is for your lover's eyes only.  Otherwise, state your feelings clearly so you can "shout it to the world."

bullet

Arrange for a hot air balloon ride for two.

bullet

Put together a Cupid coupon book for personal services such as doing chores for a day or a weekend, helping with homework, a free "pass" of a night of no nagging when your loved one misses curfew or arrives home late from work without a phone call, and add some fun activities such as an evening of romantic delight, indulgence in a not-on-the-diet meal, total control of the remote for a specified period, or other items the recipient would enjoy.
