Painting together

A great gift such as painting is enjoyable when done together. One great experience for any artist is a painting session. Take your loved one to a local painting studio and together make a creative piece while having a conversation. Additionally, if your loved one is more into something more hands-on, take them to a pottery studio. Together make a pot or whatever desired, paint it after, and finally take it home to put on display.

One really simple but heartfelt gift is a photo album book. Photos of memories of you and your lover together are a great gift to look back on your relationship in a creative way. Print out photos of you and your lover together, find a book, place your pictures in and creatively decorate it yourself however you like. Additionally on each page, write down a song that reminds you of them.
