Greeting Banner

Almost each of us has a website we visit everyday. What if someday (or on birthday), your girlfriend or boyfriend will visit the site as usual and see the banner with greetings to his or her name, probably a photo or a romantic picture illustrating your feelings. I think it will be a very pleasant surprise.

1. Order greeting banner design or make it yourself if you know how to work in Photoshop or Flash.
2. Order advertising space for one day at the website your boyfriend or girlfriend visits daily.
3. Have the banner placed on the website on the day specified.

Welcome Gifts

Normally we give presents on holidays or birthdays when people expect us to do it. We are used to buying gifts on that very day or the day before the date and nine times out of ten they are not what this particular person would really love to get, no matter how expensive the gift is. The better way is to pick up inexpensive welcome gifts that we know are really needed or likely to cheer our people up and present them more often without any expected reason.

1. Remark any items that would fit your friends and relatives' home, appearance, etc.
2. Fix in mind or note what your people tell you about their needs and wishes.
3. When you have a chance to buy a little gift don't put it off till tomorrow.

You will be surprised how future owners will be grateful for the gifts that are useful or to their taste. It is always pleasant to get a gift when you don't expect it. By presenting little gifts you show people that they are always in your mind, not only on holidays or birthdays.

Paint The Nursery Walls

The first years of a new baby are very important for developing basic skills, like color perception. That is why baby clothes are so bright, toys are so colorful and the walls color is so... oops... restrained. If your new baby could talk it would ask you to paint the walls in the nursery in bright colors, flowers, animals or cartoon characters.

1. Have an idea of what should be painted on the walls
2. Make a sketch on the sheet of paper based on your idea
3. Outline the forms of the drawings to paint them
4. Paint the outlines with various colors
5. Hire an artist if you don't think you can handle all the above

Your child will not be blind to the beauty of nature and bright colors of life. This fairy decoration will stimulate baby's fantasy.

Corporate Battle-Piece

Piece of art, usually abstract one, is considered to be a good corporate gift for company's top managers or president. However most of them are not art admirers and will not appreciate the gift, unless it is well-known masterpiece that costs a couple of millions. If this sum is too expensive for the company you can order a copy that will definitely satisfy everybody.

1. Find an artist who can make a good copy of well-known battle-piece.
2. Ask the artist to change the original faces at the picture to faces of company staff, e.i. general with the face of president, his attendants with the faces of top management, etc.
3. Organize a grand opening of the battle-piece.

The owner of the battle-piece picture will be pleased anyway no matter if he or she has sense of humor or not. If you mention at a corporate party that it was your idea, you are likely to get a promotion.

An Old Friend Gift

All of us have old friends we haven't seen for a long time. We used to spend a good time together, but now we are too busy or too far away from each other. Meeting an old friend may be one of the most valuable gifts for birthday.

1. Find a phone number or email of a person you and your friend, who celebrates birthday, missed and would love to see.
2. Invite this person to your friend's birthday and tell about the surprise you want to make.
3. When you come to the birthday party tell your friend that your gift will be delivered soon.
4. At the birthday party talk to your friend about old times saying that it would be nice to get together sometime.
5. Give your 'gift' a sign that he or she may appear.

You have a chance to spend the whole evening or even night remembering good times you had. If the person you invited doesn't stay at your friend's house for a month, your friend will be glad to you for such a gift.

Day-off Gift Certificate

The gift in need is the gift indeed. All mothers know that the most needed thing during the first months of new baby life is the thing you lack the most – free time. Diapers, napkins, rattles, soft toys are useful gifts for a new mother at baby showers, but you can give her something better – an opportunity to spend some time for herself, like going to the beauty shop.

1. Buy a blank gift certificate with corresponding picture and design
2. Describe your gift, ex.: I will spend with your baby a day on any weekend you need.

Your friend will appreciate your gift very much if not at the moment but for sure when the time comes. She will be able to relax and enjoy free time leaving her baby with someone she trusts.

True Heart Gift

When we love somebody we say we give our heart to this person. In fact these are only words, nothing more than a beautiful allegory. Of course we don't suggest you should give your heart literally, just to back your words up with facts.

1. When having a medical examination ask cardiologist to give you a blank form, print the heart diagram and record your heart beat
2. Fill the form with phrases like, 'The heart is full of love to you, my dear' or 'When we are apart it stops, but when we are together it makes 160 beats per minute'
3. Take your heart beat record to the radio and ask a soundman to set it to music, ex.: song 'I give you my heart'
4. Give your heart diagram to an abstractionist and order a picture based on the diagram

You will prove that your promises are not empty phrases. She will understand that you are not the kind of guy who turns a girl's head without serious intentions.

Flowers With Cards

As is common on Valentine's Day we give flowers to our Valentines. We take it for granted and think little of stuff like that, absentmindedly choosing those we are used to buying for her. However each flower has its meaning and if we use this knowledge we can better express our feelings.

1. Find out or observe what kind of flowers your Valentine loves
2. Learn in Internet or in a flower-shop what the meaning of each flower is
3. Buy little cards and write the flower legend on each of them (ex.: If a flower represents passion you can write "This flower is my tender passion for you")
4. Buy the flowers your Valentine adores and tie each card on with a color string

Valentine's Beauty Queen

Sometimes women don't have enough time and opportunity to fix themselves before going out on Valentine's Day. For this reason they may not feel confident no matter how hard you try to set a romantic mood. She will feel herself a beauty queen if you let her spend the whole day up to the dinner in a restaurant so she could have everything from pedicure to hairdo taking the full service in a beauty shop.

1. Buy unlimited service in a beauty shop for one day and make the ticket in the form of invitation
2. Ask your Valentine not to plan anything on Valentine's Day or take a day off
3. Present her the invitation in the morning and hire a taxi to pick her up in the evening at a beauty shop to take her to the restaurant

Finally, you will sit there with the most beautiful woman in the restaurant and all men will envy you. You will show that you can treat her as a lady and she will be pleased to sit there in the restaurant with a real man.

Annual Valentine's Proposal

Valentine's Day celebration is based on true proposal story but since that time reduced itself to valentine party or valentine date in a restaurant. No matter whether you have already proposed to your sweetheart or just about to do so it is the best gift you can ever give on Valentine's Day. Think of various creative ways to propose and use a different one every year.

1. Each year look through proposal ideas and pick up a new one your honey would love.
2. Each year buy her a different golden ring (chain, bracelet, etc.).
3. If she says 'yes' (that means you were a nice husband the previous year :-), organize a party to announce your engagement.

If you use 'Annual Valentine's Proposal' idea, you will breathe new life into your relationships each year and you will always feel yourselves just married. Valentine's Day will become the most long-expected day in the year for your darling.

Valentines All Over

There is a tradition to give a card in the shape of heart, so called 'valentine', to our sweethearts on Valentine's Day. One valentine a year is a good thing, but it wouldn't impress your Valentine much. Dozens or hundreds of valentines with complements hidden all over the house or apartment is quite another story.

1. Buy as many valentines as you can handle
2. Look around the house or apartment in search of the visible or hidden place to put a valentine
3. Fix a valentine with a 'context' compliment at each place (i.e. 'You look gorgeous' on the mirror, 'You make me hot' in the microwave oven, etc.)

If you use your brains, finding valentines may take a week or a month. Your sweetheart will spend a great time reading your valentines and your fantasy and efforts will be rewarded.
