Tips & Ideas

This year I decided to be a little creative and yet try to save a little money while doing something special for Valentine’s. I am going to do the 12 Days of Valentine’s. Starting 11 days before Valentine’s, I will leave little gifts for my loved one to find. 

Day 1 – one balloon that says “I Love You”; 

Day 2 – two coupons for various special favors or treats; 

Day 3 – three love songs, some taped and some written words, that mean something special to us;

Day 4 – four love poems, I found on a postcard site and hand written; 

Day 5 – five terms of endearment; 

Day 6 – six chocolate candy hearts; 

Day 7 – seven flowers; 

Day 8 – eight heart shaped cookies; 

Day 9 – nine message heart candies; 

Day 10 – ten reasons (of the millions) why I love him; 

Day 11 – eleven Hershey’s hugs and kisses; 

Day 12 (Valentine’s) – twelve ways to say “I Love You”, languages. 

I am still in the process of trying to figure out if I want to leave them in the same spot to be found at the same time every day, or if I want it to be more random. This was a lot of fun planning and didn’t cost much at all with our “poor student” budget. I think it will be very memorable.
