Offerings for Aphrodite?

I, in my own way, have felt a certain push inside my head to look up everything I can find on Aphrodite. From the Internet, Half Price Books, actual non-fiction books about the worship of and different facets of her as a goddess. In every thing I have read I have still not found a good basis for ritual or offerings. Maybe I am not being creative enough. When I try to pin it down in my head, I think about mirrors. And that is usually as far as I have gotten. Maybe some dancing.

My question is for all of you who have personal deities that you make offerings to: How did you come up with your methods? Was it instinctual? Straight recon? Something else?

I can't figure out how to make a mirror an offering. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I feel like I am right on top of something but can't find it. Could I be overthinking? When I dance, I dance in front of mirrors. Maybe by dedicating it to her, that would be an offering of sorts?

It seems like not a lot of people have a lot to do with Aphrodite. Other than the obvious, love, attraction, etc. To me it's so much more and in depth. Is there a tradition somewhere that focuses on her as a deity?
