Falling in love is wonderful isn't it? It gives you butterflies in your stomach and makes you want to shout out from the mountain tops. Just getting out of bed in the morning feels like a celebration. Better yet, as you get to know someone this love can evolve and turn into so much more. No matter where you are in a relationship or how long you have been with someone, it's always a good time to express your love for your special someone. I know it's easy to forget the romance sometimes; but just a little bit of effort can make anyone feel like a million dollars. So where would you say your love life rates? If you would like to inject a bit of spontaneity and sparkle into your relationship; or you are just looking for a more creative approach to saying those three little words; I'd like to share a few ideas with you. In no time at all your love life will be off the charts.

1) Take your special someone to a planetarium and name a star after each other.

2) Buy a box of their favourite chocolates or candy and give them one whenever you see them; or leave one in their bag, car or on the bed.

3) Go to Perfect Potion or The Body Shop and create a fragrance just for them and name it after them.

4) Bake a cake or a giant cookie for them in the shape of a heart and write "I love you" on it.

5) Give them a long massage by candlelight while playing some relaxing music (and don't ask for one in return.)

6) Write a poem for them telling them just how wonderful they are and how much you love them. Read it to them or slip it under their pillow for them to find.

7) Write it in lipstick on the bathroom mirror.

8) Send them a single rose every day for eight days. On the cards each day spell out I-L-O-V-E-Y-O-U, letter by letter. At the end of the eight days they will have their complete message.

9) Do something nice for them without being asked or expecting anything from them. For example, wash their car for them; anything you think they would appreciate.

10) Make them their favourite breakfast and serve it to them in bed.

11) Hand-stitch "I love you" onto a pillow and leave it on their bed.

12) Explain to them exactly what it is that makes them so wonderful, loveable and unique.

13) As a joke, get a fake tattoo of their name in a private place only they will see. Warning: you probably don't want to do this too early on in a relationship as you might scare them off.

14) Take them for a mid-night swim at the beach and sip champagne on the sand afterwards.

15) Hire a limousine for the evening and take them to the theatre and then to their favourite restaurant for dinner.

16) Create a playlist of their absolute favourite songs and set it up in their car so it automatically plays when they start the car.

17) Get up extra early one day, turn off their alarm and sing them a song you wrote just for them to wake them up.

18) Create and set up an "adult" treasure hunt for them. Hide clues for them to find and on every clue also write a cute message just for them. Have a small but meaningful present at the end for them to find, open and keep.

19) Create a collage with pictures of the two of you and give it to them.

20) Take them to Paris for the night…
Watch a French film, cook them a French inspired meal, buy some French pastries for dessert and afterwards, tell them you love them – in French. FYI "je t'aime" is I love you in French.

21) Cut out love hearts, write your names on them and leave them in silly places for your other half to find.

The most important thing when expressing your love for someone is to think about what kind of person they are and what they would like. After all, everyone is unique. Just remember, sometimes it is the little things that say I love you the most. For example, remembering to ask them about their day or knowing what their favourite ice-cream flavour is. Sounds dull I know, but taking the time to remember this stuff matters. Of course a dozen red roses wouldn't go astray either.
