However, things are not that easy, to make the day memorable, you need to do something unique, something which your partner can remember for the rest of his/her life. While gifts can be a good way of making things more cheerful, it really depends on what exactly are you gifting?

There is a reason why this is on top of our list; no matter how masculine your man is or likes to be, any man who is in love with you will adore this gift. The memories waterfall can be anything you want it to be. Basically, what we have in mind is a lane of photos that can define your relationship from start until the present time.

Then you can use a booklet, or computer papers or even cardboard to make a nice final product of this memories waterfall in a way that suits you!
- Fridge Magnet:
This one is for people who would like it to be minimalistic yet cute. It is a very easy technique and you can use it in multiple ways. For example, you can have quotes printed that define your bond and have them placed as fridge magnets or you can have Polaroid of your favorite time together.

- Candy Jar:
Well, this one doesn’t necessarily have to be a candy jar but it can be anything that he likes a lot! For example, when I had to make it for my significant other, I filled it up with M&Ms because I know he would go crazy just by looking at it. And trust me, this will work like a charm, he will not only enjoy the candy in it but will also keep the jar and might as well fill it up again himself or ask you to do so!
- Ear Pod Cover:
Well, we have chosen ear pods to explain this but it can be literally anything, even a laptop sleeve could be made at home by sewing up leather appropriately. Hence it all really depends on how much time are you left with and how long will it take you to be this creative. While this option feels like a lot of work, it really isn’t. There are ways to do it more easily. However, doing it nicely will only make you feel good about it and will give him something that he can use on a daily basis while remembering you!

This one never gets old! If you are not that expressive, you can use this card to tell him how you truly feel and how blessed you are to have him in your life! Also, you can always give a card with something that you bought for him but trust me on this, a card given with true feelings is enough on its own as well!
- Message in a bottle:
There are different ways of expressing your love and message in a bottle is one of them. Well, this will be a bit more creative idea towards telling him what you feel about him and he can keep it with him as a keychain for his car or home and read it every time he feels low!

Just how he has lightened up your life, this light bulb will serve as a metaphor for your eternal love and how he makes you feel like sunshine! You can have a little note attached at the stand of the light bulb as well so whenever he is in his study and needs to lighten it up, he can have the message as well!
- Month-long Valentine:
This one has to be my most favorite option as it never gets old. All you need to do is to take a jar and pour in 30 chits, each for one day until a month ends. In those chits, you can write lovely messages so that every morning when he wakes up, he can start his day with your kind words which will definitely make him feel special.
