If you need a last-minute gift idea today, this is for you. I picked this idea up years ago over at The Dollar Stretcher. It’s inexpensive, easy, and keeps on giving:
Cut out as many hearts as you feel like making out of red construction paper or any paper that you have on hand. (Don’t remember how? Fold a piece of paper and cut the shape of a half heart on the folded edge. Unfold and you have a heart-shaped piece of paper.) On each heart, write down something you love about your sweetie. Here are some examples:
- I love your laugh
- I love waking up next to you
- I love the way you change all the poopy diapers
Then hide the hearts in all the places your sweetie will find them – in a coat pocket, a shoe, a drawer, the computer keyboard, etc. He or she probably won’t find them all at once, so the gift will keep on giving for a while.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
