<Recipient Address Goes Here>
We've been together for <time>, and I can't tell you how wonderful the time has been, or how much I love you. I've been trying to think of creative ways to show you how I feel, but until now I hadn't come up with anything that really says what I want to say. But now I have, and with your permission, I'd like to buy you <gift>.
I know you're going to say that it's too expensive, or that I don't have to do that to prove that I love you, but that doesn't matter. I'm not trying to prove anything. I just want to buy something for the <man/woman> I love to show you once and for all how I feel about you. I know it's a serious gift, and that's why I'm asking your permission.
Please let me know soon how you feel about the idea. I've already got the <gift> picked out, so all you need to do is say yes. Please do.
