The Internet offers many opportunities to put a website up for free or for a small fee. In case of this romantic gifts for girlfriend it's not important to find the best web host. You'll be building the web page for your Love as one of your romantic gifts for her, not for any commercial purpose. We can recommend Google Sites.

How You Go About Making It

√ Remember to add links. Links going outside your site; also inside your site from one page to another.
√ Add photos. Add small ones straight on the page. Or put a link leading to another existing web album. Use a simple photo editing program (Picnik is a free online photo editing program) to resize or edit your your photos if needed.
When your web page is ready then you need to find a perfect way to present it. For example, send her a link to it, or ask someone to send it anonymously. Or surf a web together with her one day and make her stumble upon this one of your romantic gifts for girlfriend accidentally.
Or you might wrap it up as a present in a gift box… just write the link on a piece of paper. Put the note in a chocolate box, attach to a flower. Actually, the possibilities are endless. Good luck!

We thank Quinn Dombrowski for sharing her love plant photos with us.
A love plant is a nice gift for a girl who likes greenery. She doesn't need to have a green thumb, not yet, because practice makes perfect. Nevertheless, don't trouble yourself and her with this gift idea if she doesn't enjoy taking care of plants. Most importantly, be ready to accept that your love will outgrow the plant! That's the best part about many of the romantic gifts for her that you can prepare!
√ One or more plants.
√ A nice pot. We'd choose terra-cotta, it let's the plant breathe. Or you use the same pot you got the plant in.
√ Some paint or markers for writing a special note on the pot.
How You Go About Assembly
Write a special note on the pot. Put the plant in the pot. You can wrap the plant or just the pot if you want. If you just wrap the pot, then the special message will not be visible right away and it'll add to the anticipation. Some of the message ideas you could use with plants and pots as your romantic gifts for girlfriend are: 'Love is Like a Plant'; 'You Bloom for me Forever'; 'You are My Ever Blooming Flower'; 'I've Planted You in My Heart'.
