I promise…no more hassles, no more lines, and no more guessing - from now on, all you're going to be doing is having fun and surprising the ones you love. Sound good?

Sound too good to be true? Well, I assure you it’s not. It's actually quite doable and real. Just keeping reading and that's exactly what you'll be doing!

I realize that as time goes by, and the more romantic gifts you give, it becomes more and more difficult to think of fresh and unusual ideas. A

dd on top of that, the frustration of spending time and money on gifts that really don’t produce the response you were hoping for, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you told me that you felt like giving up sometimes. I don’t blame you.

Romantic Gift: Just the right gift

I used to feel the same way. Yes, you read correctly, “used to,” but I don’t anymore.

One day, a long, long time ago, after reaching the limit of my frustration, I decided to put an end to that nonsense. I decided to create my own system for gift-giving that would allow me to choose the perfect gifts for the people in my life with minimal effort and expenditure. And believe it or not, I succeeded.

Ever since I started using my ‘secret’ system, my friends and family think that I’m a gift-giving ‘genius’.

They’re constantly amazed at how well my gifts match their wishes. And I love it!

Little do they know, however, that it’s not all a matter of chance but actually a result of meticulous research and planning. Well, at least they didn’t know until now.

I decided to call my ‘secret’ system the ‘The RomanceIt! Model’ for gift-giving because that’s what gift-giving represents to me – a giving of LOVE and AFFECTION.

Gifts, and especially romantic gifts, are symbols, words, and memories all wrapped into one. So whether a gift is for a special occasion or for a special someone, the point is to bring a piece of romance, a piece of love into it.

Why? Because romance is what brings light to the world…and to those you love.

OK, enough chit-chat. I’m too anxious to share my ‘secret’ model with you and see what ‘romantic creations’ you'll come up with. There are just a few technical details that I’d like to go over first and then you’ll be ready to roll.

The way it works is: each letter of the model’s name (RomanceIt!) represents an element that must be incorporated into your romantic gift. As you read the description of each letter, I want you to write down everything and anything that comes to mind. It doesn’t matter if the thought is silly or completely absurd, just write it down. Later, you’ll be able to sift through your ideas and choose the ones that most fit your current purpose. I also suggest that you keep a journal icon of your ideas so that the next time you have to give a romantic gift, most of the work will already have be done for you.

Last, but not least, I want you to remember that this is ‘my’ model that fits ‘my’ view of the world. Use it only as a guide, kind of a jump-start for getting your creative juices flowing. We are all ‘creative geniuses,’ so please feel free to play with it and make it as much of your own as you’d like.

Without further ado, I give to you -- The RomanceIt! Model:

‘R’ for Remember: Remember every occasion over the past year (or longer if you’d like) when you saw your guy’s face light up with bursting joy. Remember what he was doing, who he was with, and most importantly, WHY that moment made him truly happy. You could also think about his hopes, dreams, and wishes to help you generate some romantic gift-giving ideas. However, as you’re brainstorming, don’t forget to write everything in your new RomanceIt! journal.

‘O’ for Order: Now I want you to order the occasions you listed under element ‘R’ according to the ‘degree’ of happiness they evoked. Recall the smile on his face, the look in his eyes, and the endless bragging that you heard for months afterwards. I’m sure that the ‘winners’ will be quite obvious to you. As you’re creating your list, I want you to pay attention to the following three criteria: 1. degree of pleasure, 2. current relevance, and 3. feasibility for romantic gift-giving.

‘M’ for Music: Music is a must for any occasion, BUT especially for the romantic gift giving recipe – it’s an ingredient that cannot be overlooked. Whether you’re going to present your gift at home, in a restaurant, in a park, or on a boat (or any other uniquely chosen location), music is an absolute must. Either play it or incorporate it into the gift, but definitely USE it. Music adds mysticism and fantasy to any moment, but particularly to a romantic moment. If you have a special song that the two of you share, use it. If you don’t have one yet, take a look at the TimeLife music collection. By the time you finish sifting through those choices, I'm sure you'll have your song. However, if you don't find what you want and feel that you need a few more ideas, visit the 'sound and spirit' page of this site. You do want to finish your homework, don't you?

‘A’ for Art: Art has many shapes and forms. Art is painting, drawing, dancing, writing, acting, singing…and anything else that has an imaginative flair. I want you to decide what type of creative self-expression feels most natural to you, and use it temporarily to become the artist of your current conception. Don’t be frightened, I don’t want you to become an actual artist (unless that’s what you already are). I just want you to use your natural creative abilities to infuse uniqueness into the card you give, the wrapping that you use, the decoration that you choose, and the way you present your gift. Act out a scene of love…write a poem… sing a song…paint a picture…. make a collage. And if you feel that you don't have the skills, don't worry. After a few affordable ‘Art’ lessons you might just become the ‘romance muse’ that he’s always dreamed of.

However, if you're still a bit insecure about your artistic abilities, then just use someone else's imaginative resources :-). For instance, you could give your honey a funky caricature of the two of you, have your photos transformed into a work of art creating a gorgeous photo canvas, or have a love letter or poem turned into an exquisite replica of a 16th century style scroll (you can find this gift option at Poetry Gifts under the poetry link section). Both of you will love it!

‘N’ for Nose: Ahhhh…the aroma of fresh made flowers…the sensual fragrance of a perfumeicon…the natural scent of a man and woman …the nose loves it all! So you must make sure that you have at least a couple of these tantalizing elements present as you formulate your ideal romantic gift. The nose is the doorway that leads to the heart…so the more ‘gifts’ entering that doorway, the happier and more grateful your receiver will be!

‘C’ for Chart: This one specific factor has been my best friend for years and has made the task of creating the perfect romantic gift almost a complete synch. A person’s astrological chart is like a fingerprint. But instead of describing the physical makeup of the individual, it describes the spiritual composition. Imagine if you knew things about him that he never confessed to you. Imagine if you could give him a gift that spoke to his deep, inner desires. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well, an astrological chart can help you become that gift-giving ‘mind-reader.’ If using this secret tool sounds interesting to you, start by checking out the zodiac compatibility page of this website and see what hints you can pick up.

(Numerology by Affinity) Numerology)

‘E’ for Eyes: Here we have one of the five senses that lives entirely in its own private world; following its own rules and regulations. The visual attraction one experiences toward things, places, and people is sometimes unusual and totally unexplainable. We are an imagery-based society, so beauty in all its glory appeals to us like nothing else on earth. That’s why it’s important to make your gift (and yourself) as visually stimulating as possible. Work with it…work with the lights…with the linensicon …with the desert…with the lingerie icon…with the overall ambienceicon…and anything else that you can think of. Make this occasion as beautiful and magical as you can. Remember, what he sees, is exactly what you’ll get in return! Get it?

‘I’ for Imagination: Our imagination is our soul and spirit working together to help us realize our dreams and fantasies. It wants us to experience things that we’ve never felt before…to create things that we never knew we could. Your imagination is a part of you that needs and wants to be welcomed, explored and set free so that you can create gifts that will carry your own, unrepeatable stamp. Nothing is too weird, actually the weirder, the better. Want to send him a singing telegram ? Do it! Want to star in your own romance novel ? Do it! Want the both of you to become the Lady and the Lord of your "private castle"? Do it! Your imagination will keep your honey up for nights!

‘T’ for Taste: Last, but definitely not least, the wondrous palate. The tastes that enter our mouths can make us crave, make us dream, and drive us wild. The tongue has the power to send numerous sensations throughout the body all in a matter of seconds. So you can imagine the importance of planning the ‘tasting’ element of your romantic gift. Have something sweet…something sour…something soft…something hard…something bitter…something cold…something hot…experiment with all sensations. And then you can finish by introducing the most incredible sensation of all – YOU!

The formula is simple: The Romantic Gift = Remembering + Organizing + Adding Melody + Being Artistic + Enjoying the Scents + Getting a Chart + Seeing the Beauty + Using the Imagination + and…Tasting It All.

Yup, that’s all. Pretty simple isn’t it?

Now that you have the ‘RomanceIt! Model’ at your fingertips, use it to create that amazingly...
