Choosing the right gifts to say I love you is hard.
Do you think a useful gift is a good gift?
Ask anyone who found cookware or a vacuum under the Christmas tree. Sure, the gift is useful but instead of saying “I Love You” it tells the recipient to cook and clean.
Another common mistake is to buy clothing or shoes for a wife or girlfriend. Too often the clothes don’t fit, or they don’t match the person’s style. Shoes are risky unless your girl tells you exactly which pair to buy.
A recent survey reported that 42% of women returned Christmas gifts they received from their husbands.
Why? Because they were the wrong gifts, that’s why!
If you want to win at gift giving try the following unique gifts to say I love you to someone special.
1. Custom Love is Art Kit
This one-of-a-kind gift lets you and your partner create a painting, ahem, with your lovemaking. Pour paint onto the canvas and your passion does the artwork.
It’s an exciting way for couples to capture shared love in a masterpiece.
The custom kit comes with four bottles of non-toxic water-based washable paint. Choose from 11 colors to coordinate the painting with your decor. A basic kit with 4 oz. of black paint only is available.
Everything you need to make a love and art canvas is included. The kit contains a 54″W x 41″L hypoallergenic white cotton canvas, protective plastic sheet, paint, two pairs of disposable slippers, and a body scrubber for the shower.
2. Constellation of Love
The second of our unique gifts to say I love you shines like the stars at night.
Remember a special moment — the night you met, when you proposed, or the birth of your child with a personalized starry night constellation.
Computer software is used to plot the stars on a specific date, then illustrates that particular night’s sky. The location, time and names are imprinted below the rendering to personalize the constellation.
It’s a touching way to commemorate special moments in your love story.
This artistic rendering is made to order and takes up to two weeks for delivery.

- Mug, Thermos, Plate

4. Limited Edition Willow Bears
You won’t find these beautiful collectible bears everywhere. They are handmade in Australia.
Willow Bears artists only make 6 to 250 of each bear. If your lady is interested in collecting bears, Willow Bears is a good place to start.
The variety of limited edition animals includes plush and mohair bears. Each one has a unique personality and look.
If your lady likes soft, cuddly bears this is a wonderful gift.
5. Intersection of Love Outdoor Sign
Make a romantic statement with a street sign marking the intersection of your lives. That’s right, a replica street sign that stands 6-8 feet tall.
You can proclaim your love with signage personalized with your last names. Some styles include the year you met, and the year you joined together for life’s journey.
The sign can highlight your romance in your yard, at your wedding or anniversary celebration. If you don’t have room for a sign on a pole, you can buy a photographic print to hang inside your home.
Either way, this is one of our favorite gifts to say I love you in a big way.
