2. From Mix Tapes to Mix CD’s to Mix USB’s


Watch any 80’s movie and you would hear about this thing called a ”Mix Tape”, a collection of songs and music which reminds you of your ‘bae’. A timeless romantic gesture, that only requires your time and a small budget. If you think buying a USB Flash Drive is still too expensive, re-use an old one and decorate it with ‘love doodles’ or your partners initials to make it more thoughtful. Don’t forget to pick songs that mean something to the both of you or just go wild with overly romantic love songs to make them blush. As they say, if music is the food of love, play on!

3. My Love Jar

Ever heard of  the saying “You never really know what you have until it’s gone”? So why not tell your significant other all the things you love and adore about them by simply writing it down. Nothing says love more than a boost of ego. Use an old jar or tin you have lying around, clean it thoroughly and decorate it with some ribbons and heart shape cut outs. Take a few post it notes and start writing down your thoughts, you can add in some quotes, memories or promises. The decorative piece can be kept in desks, kitchens or bedrooms and will be there for the rest of the year to put a smile on your sweethearts face every time they feel down.

A red rose is classically romantic and the smell of roses is a sign that ”love is in the air”.

So why not try making an origami bouquet, its cheap, easy to make and as beautiful as the real flowers! Your love will be super impressed with your paper folding skills and  thoughtfulness. Anyone can buy a rose, but only a few can make one!
