14 days of Valentines... Love Notes Version

Spoiler: If your name is Jeff and you happen to by my husband- stop reading!! 

I love Valentines day!! I love that it is a holiday celebrating love... and I love that it forces my hubby to do something sweet for me! ;) ha ha 
He always gives my girls and I the most thoughtful gifts each year, so last year I decided to do something special for him too... I did the 14 days of Valentines... For each of the 14 days leading up to and including Valentines day I gave him a small gift to remind him just how much I love him. It was so fun to see his excitement each day and he really appreciated the effort I put into it.

Since it was such a hit last year, I decided to do it once again but with a different twist on it. Instead I am doing 14 days of love notes.

I wanted to do something a little more personal than a cheesy tag tied to a gift each morning. Instead, each morning he will find a small gift with a hand written note tied to it. I tried to do things a little more catered to things that he liked instead of trying to find things that I could write something clever with. Since I am totally cheesy, some of the things do have clever/cheesy sayings hand written within the note but I didn't base my purchases on it like I did last year.



A few clever/cheesy things I am doing this year are-
-Grapefruit KISS soda: "Hey Valentine... How about a KISS??"
-Kettle Corn: "This may be "CORNY" but I thought I would "POP" the question: Will you be my Valentine?"
-Cinnamon Lips Gummies: "Hey "HOT LIPS"... Wanna put them to work when you get home?" ;)
-Muddy Buddies Chex Mix: " Hey Valentine, I wanna be more than just "BUDDIES".
-Pair of socks: "Hey Valentine... I think we are a "PERFECT MATCH"!
-Riesen candybar: "Valentine- You are my "Riesen" for living!"

Another cute idea would be to wrap each of the gifts so that your Valentine gets to open on up each morning... I wrapped a couple of my hubby's gifts.


If you want to do the 14 days of Valentines love notes for your Valentine this year- feel free to print out some love note cards.
I am happy to share- all I ask is that you become a follower of my blog somehow before printing.

Here is a link to the printable tags- just click the print button (not the share button).

Have a happy day!

  8. Hey...Ashley, I am new to your blog. It is darling. I found it through pinterest. I was looking at your darling Rise and Shout poster from September of 2011 and wanted to download it. When I tried my computer said that type of file could be harmful to my computer. Would it be too much to ask for you to email me the document. aprilhwhite@gmail.com I am wanting to print it larger and maybe hang it in my boys room.
