Saying "I love you" isn't the only way to let someone know how you feel. And most men just don't come out and tell us the way they feel. They often feel vulnerable, childlike to do so. Fortunately there are many unique ways to express your love. If saying these three words is a huge step for you, then giving a special gift also indicates that you care a great deal.

Are flowers an appropriate gift to give? The answer is, no woman could ever resist the delight of receiving a gift of beautiful flowers as a symbol of thoughtfulness and caring from someone who is thinking about her. And, since we are living in a digital world, why not add the most trendy 3D printing element to make your love different from the others? So instead of regular red rose, how about a rose that has been created on a 3D printer?

JustPaperRoses created "The I Love You Rose™" on a 3D printer at Shapeways in a process called selective laser sintering (SLS).

Our rose design is first modified for your personalization and then the rose is created, one tiny layer of plastic powder at a time, fused by laser, until the rose head is finished.

You can add up to 15 characters including spaces to the design. The I Love You Rose is 3" (76mm) in diameter and is put on a standard floral stem, anchored in a small terra cotta pot and the overall height is about 10" (254mm). The price is $59.95.
