Homemade Gifts Can Really Revitalize Romance

Sep 14, 2008
Romance is best when it comes directly from the heart. It is even better when it comes from both the heart and is made with your own hands! Whether it's homemade christmas gifts or homemade birthday gifts there is nothing cheesy, corny or cheap about making your own romantic gifts to inspire romance in your relationship. In fact, it can be far more effective than the most expensive gift you can think to buy.

The reason that giving homemade gifts so much more effective than buying or ordering gifts is that you actually put extra time and effort into what you create. Not only are you letting your partner know that you are thinking of them, but you are also saying that they are worthy of your time and extra effort.

With soaring fuel prices, people are watching what they spend more and more. Just think that in the time it would take you to go to the mall or florist shop, you could complete your own homemade gift. It doesn't matter if you are giving your gift to your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or partner. Your gift will be special because it came from a place within you rather than from a store.

If you are fortunate enough to have a way with words, take the time to write your partner a love note or poem. Even if you don't have writing flair, give writing your own prose or letter a shot. Your words and what you say can often be far more important than how you phrase it.

Use your computer to create a gift for your partner. Make cards, banners and even "love coupons" using your printer. You can also burn special CD's for your partner. If you have a favorite artist you both enjoy, burn a copy of that artist's songs onto a CD. If you are feeling a bit more creative, burn all of the number one songs of each year you've known each other. A bit on internet research can help you find those songs. If you need a shorter amount of time, compile the songs for the last 12 months for an original CD.

You don't have to have something concrete for your partner to give them something "homemade." If you and your partner have a "special place", recreate it at home. Maybe you had a great vacation or honeymoon at a beach. Recreate that beach at home (without the sand, of course). Find a recording of waves crashing on the beach, seagulls crying and possibly some soft, tropical music. Find some candles that reflect the tropical scents you remember from the beach and serve the same tropical foods you loved while you were there. If you have another location, think about the sights, sounds and scents you can recreate at home to give your partner a very special gift.

Your imagination and knowledge of what your partner likes is your best guide when you want to give him or her homemade gifts to inspire romance. As long as your intentions are genuine and you put all of your effort into your homemade project, you can't go wrong.
