Something in the mind says that if you love someone, you will want to give to him or her, and for some people receiving gifts is their primary love language. The gifts don’t have to be elaborate or expensive to communicate with a person who speaks this love language because it’s the gesture that matters most. Something as simple as a handmade card can communicate love to your partner. Always make sure to give gifts during those expected times of gift giving such as birthdays and holidays to make him/her feel treasured and loved.
4. Quality time
If your partner’s love language is quality time, giving him/her your undivided attention is one of the best ways to show your love. This doesn’t mean being in the same room with your mate while watching television or reading a book. Quality time means having one on one time listening to and conversing with your partner. Twnty minutes of intimate bonding will refill your partner’s love tank and move you closer to understanding him/her on an elevated level of love. Any moment of your sincere and undivided attention will do the trick.
