Do you give "I love you" presents?

Do you ever buy the special person in your life a present for no reason. Just because you love them and were thinking about them? It doesn't have to be a big present. It can even be a card that says something meaningful. Or something you make for them yourself. I love doing this! I think it's nice to let someone know you were thinking of them. Receiving a present when it's not a holiday makes it even more special some how. Anyone else do this?

Yes, I have a very good friend, I buy her gifts , simple gifts all the time. She is easy to buy for too. She likes things like the pretty little packs of kleenexes, and she loves Vera Bradley. You can get lots of stuff in that. I also like to buy my husband surprise wallet " I LOVE YOU " cards. Just to let him know.

I'm glad to see other people do this often. I think it's a really nice gesture and everyone appreciates it.

Hey sunnflr. It sounds very thoughtful to give your special person an unexpected gift just to say "I love you." I do this myself occasionally and my husband also does the same for me sometimes. When I find something that I know he'll be thrilled about, like a yard ornament or something like that, I'll pick one up. Or, what he really loves is a chocolate treat when I come back from shopping! Like a piece of Turtles candy or Fanny May Pixes (pecans, caramel, and chocolate). He loves to get half decaf coffee/half hot chocolate drinks at Dunkin Donut so one time, I bought him a $50 gift card for Dunkin Donut. He about had a fit, he was so excited about that!

Oh, yes! I do it. I believe it's one of the best ways to keep relationships from getting "stale". Sometimes, I'll just cook my hubby's favorite meal and he's so happy! He knows I do it because I love him, because he likes foods that are spicier than what I like. (I just keep some 'on the side' that isn't as spicy for me to eat.) I'll leave him little notes every now and then, telling him that I love him. He does the same thing for me. If I'm out shopping and I see something that I know he'd love, I'll get it for him, finances permitting, of course. Even just coming up to him when he's busy with something and asking, "What are you doing?" shows him that you're interested, and that means a lot. I also will just brush my fingers across his back or hair as I'm passing by. He loves that! "Presents" don't have to cost anything!

So true. That's how my husband and I are. It's not hard to be this way when you really love the person. I hate to see people in relationships that are starved for affection.
