After a certain point, the words "I love you" can only mean so much. Relationships get tiring and there are only so many big gestures one has the time and money to afford. Showing your partner love can mean so much more than saying a few words. Not only can the words start to have less meaning, but your wallet can only handle so many fancy dinners and trips. Here are a few ways to show your partner you love them without using the words "I love you" and that cost you less than $10.
1. Write a love letter and leave it somewhere to surprise her.
2. Clean her room.
3. Make her bed.
4. Put clean sheets on her bed for her.
5. Buy her a candle.
