If your partner feels loved when physical touch is done, then they may love the following gifts. Remember, that with physical touch, they want this touch from you. Taking your time during physical touch is important and communicates that you want to experience this moment with them.
If this is your partner’s love language, you know that they have put so much thought into the gifts they will be gifting other people and are secretly hoping that other people will put in the same thought into the gifts they will be receiving. Chances are that your partner has already mentioned a gift that would be a really cool or a good idea to have around the house.
With quality time, the focus is being intentional and present with minimal distractions. If your partner perceives quality time as a way of feeling loved, then some of these gift ideas may help. Another tip to keep in mind is that quality time does not mean quantity. Some of these ideas can be anywhere from 20 minutes to spending a weekend together.
