But no one said you had to think of everything from scratch, right? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with looking online to help you get a jump start of saying “the right thing” to the one that you love.

Is There Something Else?

Is there something else that should be on the list? Of course there are gobs and gobsof things you could say to your loved one, but I hope these ideas give you the right words to say or at least some inspiration to get you started.

Ways to Use “I Love You Because”

Do you want to tell someone you love them, and why… but not sure how to do it?

Here are a few fun ideas I thought of, in case you’re looking for ways to express why you love him or her.

  • Simply just tell them. Over the phone, through text, in person. Sometimes we don’t say it enough, or don’t dig deep in to the why, when in reality, giving a reason why can be something wonderful that he or she can hold on to for the rest of their life.
  • Hidden letters. Hide small notes around the house (underwear drawer, suitcase when he/she travels, lunchbox, cabinet, etc.)
  • Through a video. Create a video listing all of the reasons of why you love them. It’s something special that they can hang on to for forever, and see you while you’re saying it. Sometimes saying things on video is much easier than saying it in person.
  • In public. Want to go big or go home? Say a few reasons of why you love them in front of a large crowd, on tv, on the big screen at the theater or sporting event, to really make an impact on the person that loves to be in the spotlight. Is the person you love more recluse and private? Maybe going big and public isn’t something to do.

Have another fun way to express “I love you because” ideas? I’d love to hear them. Drop them in the comments below!

Good luck, have so much fun, and I can’t wait to hear how you’ve showered the person you love, with WHY you love them.
