10 Memorable Ways to Say ‘I Love You’

When you want to say ‘I love you’, there are many wonderful, memorable and different ways to express this important sentiment — both with and without words. Saying ‘I love you’ is important, and while there are special days for doing this, such as Valentine’s Day, remember that most people crave to know that they are loved every day of the year.

It’s definitely possible to say ‘I love you’ without resorting to clichéd, tired and overused methods.

1:  Gift baskets or hampers

A stunning and individually tailored gift basket that incorporates many of your loved one’s favourite things. From wine and coffee, to delicious chocolates, gourmet treats and even elegant pampering and luxury products, quality gift baskets can be personalised and prepared so that your someone special is delighted and suitably impressed by your efforts to appeal to their tastes.

Christmas hampers offer a special way to say ‘I love you’ in the festive season. They are a useful and appreciated gift that offers originality and a marked change from the kindly given but impractical and not-so-useful gifts that are often received.

2:  On food

Spelling out the words ‘I love you’ with chocolate chips on a cookie or pancake is a cute, original and thoughtful way to say ‘I love you’. Your loved one is bound to be impressed by the effort you have gone to – particularly if you have made the food yourself.

3:  An experience

Organising a special experience offers a wonderful and very memorable way to express your love. It is all but impossible not to be impressed when someone goes to the effort of planning and organising a very special occasion — whether that is a weekend away, a picnic hamper filled with delectable goodies to be enjoyed in a beautiful, romantic location or even a more adventurous, adrenaline-fuelled activity, if that is what you are into!

4:  A screensaver

Capitalise on the opportunities presented by technology and create a screensaver that says ‘I love you’ to be seen by your loved one whenever they sit down to work at their computer. Not only does the creation of a screensaver express your love at the time it is created and first seen, but as long as the person chooses to use it on their computer, it is also a constant reminder of your care and affection.

5:  Another language

Learning to say ‘I love you’ in a foreign language is a very romantic and impressive way to express your love. If you want to tell a person you love them using another language, these options may be helpful:

French — je t’aime

Italian — ti amo

Spanish — te quiero

German — ich liebe dich

Dutch — ik hou van jou

6:  Lollies

Particularly if your loved one has a sweet tooth, having personalised love lollies made is a great idea! You can choose the style of the lollies you want to give and have the person’s name follow the words ‘I love you’ on each lolly. Very cute.

7:  With an echo

There is an unusual way to say ‘I love you’ and be sure that your loved one has heard it several times: take them into a cave or other place in which echoes abound and yell it out! You and the person you love will not be able to avoid hearing these words reverberate and repeat numerous times.

8:  Text messages

Sending a text message that simply says ‘I love you’ on the hour every hour for a whole day will certainly remind the person that you love them and are dedicated to letting them know it!

9:  Watch the sunrise

Far more romantic than it is corny, plan to surprise your loved one with a picnic on the beach at sunrise. Impress them even more by writing ‘I love you’ in the sand, preferably before taking them to your picnic location.

10: Love notes

Make a number of love notes that say “l love you’ and distribute them in places where your loved one will find them at different times — for example, in pockets, the cutlery draw, in their favourite coffee cup and stuck to the steering wheel of their car.

There are many great ways to say ‘I love you’. In order to make these words and this sentiment memorable, consider original ways of communicating your love that are meaningful to the special person in your life.
