1.Surprise him (or her). Flights to Ireland via Aer Lingus are running at only $200 or so one-way at the moment. Bring that special someone back to the land of love.

2. Read Yeats love poems, especially 'When You are Old," which includes the immortal lines: "But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, and loved the sorrows of your changing face."
5. The Claddagh ring says it all - a pledge of undying love, from any Irish retail store.
