365 Love Reasons - boyfriend gift help!
My boyfriend and I have an anniversary coming up next month. We have both done 365 reasons why we love each other and what we love about each other, but now I'm stuck!
What is the best way to present this as a gift? I love making things but I am just struggling for inspiration on what to do!
I was thinking just writing them in a book is a little unoriginal. The best I can come up with is writing them on fancy note cards and putting them in a box decorated by me.
But I just don't know! Please help!
I have this idea but I'm no sure if you'll like it! So you two go to a library and take a challenge. The person who reads more books in a n hour is the winner. But you would probably have to let him win ! And the winner's prize is that the loser will have to grant the winner's ten wishes!
How about making a scroll? It's less cliche than putting them in a book format.
Otherwise, I would say make a jar full of the little notes so he can pick them out at random.
I did this for my boyfriend recently. I decorated a show box (because a jar was too small) and put the folded up reasons in there. I also wrote a cute little message thing on the inside of the lid. I saw some nice ones where people wrote them on playing cards too.
Theres a couple on CO+K that are playing card books. I like the jar/book idea, you could also do a day a page calendar, so that he will have a new reason every day.
You could write the reasons on strips of paper and then fold them into lucky stars. Put the stars in a nice jar. He will have to fold the stars open to read your message.
I made this one time with nice quotes for my friends. I kept the jar in my locker and each day or so we took one. Making them is a little time-consuming though.
My brother did this for his girlfriend too. He covered & decorated a heart-shaped box (you can get them around valentines day or I think they have them at hobby lobby/craft stores). He put their picture on the inside lid too, & all the lil strips of paper reasons inside. ....you could also do this with a jar.
OR you could buy one of those lil calendars where you tear off a piece everyday. & replace the images/sayings with your pictures & reasons. that's a lot of glueing tho. Haha
How about writing them on lolly pop sticks then putting them all in a jar so you can pull them out from the top.. does that make sense?
If you have a lot of time and patience you could embroider them on a blanket...
