Inexpensive Valentine's Day gift: hidden hearts

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!

That's adorable. My husband once did something for me once before a long business trip with heart-shaped post-it notes, and it was wonderful. Like you said, it really did keep on giving!
