Sometimes its also nice to simply take a nice flower (be it her fav or simply beautiful and press it... as in place it in an old book, close it, and place heavy books onto of it to create something that will last a long time.
That is a gift that will last a long time, is cheap, and is great for "brownie points".
Most people like the time in which a person spends on the gift. Which is why words take a long to create, which is why females and males enjoy reading things that are designed to ignite themselves.
Hope the poem went well (or is that conversation?) kudos for wanting to do your best.
