Dancing lessons can be a particularly meaningful gift for a loved one with the love language of Physical Touch. There are many styles to choose from—pick one and surprise your partner.

Find a local or online trophy shop and create a customized trophy for a friend or relative. Be creative and fun, but most of all make it personal. For example, if your mother prides herself on her Southern Fried Chicken recipe, this would be the perfect trophy.
Acts of Service
Get an organizer and enter all the relevant birthdays and specials days before you give it to your loved one. For the one whose secondary love language is Words of Affirmation, include a few loving entries every month.
Now and Laters
Get a little physical with your spouse playing this sweet game. Pick up a few packs of individually wrapped Now and Laters®. Stash them around the house for your spouse to find. Instruct them that every time they find one to let you know. When they do, they get a 60-second hug or kiss now AND 60 seconds toward a massage or other agreed upon activity later when they “cash in” their candy.
