Leave Notes (in Unusual Places) 留便条(在特别的地方)
Perhaps life has become so busy that you feel like your schedule rarely coincides with that of your partner or kids. How about leaving them a note somewhere unexpected? You've probably all heard of kids having little notes from their mom's in their lunch bags--that's one place to start, but how about a note by the kettle, in the fridge, on the pillow, on the computer screen...? This can become a bit of a game as you compete to leave a note in the most unusual places!
Hug Someone 来个拥抱
Physical gestures mean a huge amount, and a hug can be just what a loved one needs to put a big smile on their face. Whether it's snuggling up on the sofa with your partner or giving your kids a goodnight hug, being held and warmed by another person is a perfect way to feel loved.
Write A Poem 写一首小诗
A time-honored way to say "I love you" is to write a poem. You don't have to be Shakespeare--look for sincere, original ways to tell someone that you love them. Try not to fall back on hackneyed phrases about their beautiful blue eyes or their rosy red lips; write about something that's meaningful to you, perhaps that dimple on their chin, or the way they laugh at your jokes.
Give An Unexpected Gift 送份出乎意料的礼物
I'm sure you give your loved ones gifts on their birthday, at Christmas, and on special occasions like Valentine's day. But how about bringing a gift completely at random? An unexpected present is a moment of pure joy for the recipient and the giver, and it needn't be anything expensive. A few of their favorite chocolates, a small bunch of flowers, a book which you know they'll enjoy...for a few dollars, you have the perfect way to say "I love you".
Do The Chores (Without Being Asked) 主动帮忙做家务
For many people, another extremely welcomed gift is someone else doing the chores! If it's your partner who usually cleans the kitchen, why not do it and surprise him/her? If you normally have to be nagged to vacuum, get it done without being asked. Finding little ways to make someone else's day smoother lets them know how much they mean to you.
